I’m trying to learn how to navigate this new system of posting on my website, and making all kinds of stupid mistakes. I’ll try to correct them if I can. If not please forgive the mess.
This is my new book coming out Jan. 11, 2014. It may be available for per-order in December, to be delivered in the new year-hopefully. I will know more a little later on and keep my readers informed..

I haven’t posted anything for awhile because my son Mark overhauled and updated my computer. It’s great and I like the new look. However, I have to find a new way of doing things, and that’s not easy for me at times.
I will try to add a few pictures to see if they can be cut and pasted instead of uploaded. Whatever, I will keep trying. In the case of my new book, “On the Goose”, I was a tad disappointed that it won’t be out until January 11, 2014. But I have since decided that it will give me some free time. I had a busy winter trying to get the manuscript finished and off to my publisher by the January 31 deadline. I had a lot of help from my daughter Cathy and my dear friend Elaine. My publisher sent me a copy of the front cover last week! I thought it was a good choice. I have to approve all the decisions pertaining to the book’s initial design. Dundurn Publishing has been very good to me to date.
Finished, Done, Don’t have to write another chapter in this book. what’s done is done . what’s written is written. I now have to be there for the barrages of questions during the designing and printing of my NEW book. I’m in the process of trying to select pictures, and it’s not an easy job. I just finished cleaning up the junk in my out box and came across a hundred responses that came in on my So FE on Earth Blog. So sorry if you didn’t get a response from me. at the time I didn’t even know how to open it. My son set it u for me, and because I didn’t know the password. I didn’t bother to find out. Will I ever learn how to use this tech/ equipment I wonder”I will keep trying though.Hopefully, You will come to the conclusion in my second book ‘On the Goose’ that I am not one to give up easily!
Wish me lock. And I hope all of you will enjoy the read.

Hi Friends and Readers.
Thought it time to update. It’s been a hectic month. A booking in early Oct got me my first Keynote Speaking Engagement for a sea of people, 450 to be exact. I was informed I did a wonderful job. However, I don’t really remember too much about it. It was good for me, but not so good for my nerves!
Also, I visited a School in First Nations and donated a book to the school. I attended 8 other engagements in October as well. I also have to go to exercise 3 times a week. All of this while trying to finish my second book. It’s getting there…..slowly.
We spent a lot of time digging mud back into the water line. which we had to replace I actually ended up at the bottom of the water tank cleaning it out. The new grass is doing beautifully. and my flowers are still blooming!
Went on a Retreat in Niagara Falls last weekend. It was wonderful. Now trying to catch up. Thinking of doing something in my dining room.
Love my sunsets on the lake Golfing with friends…should be walking.
Dinner with Beach Bag Ladies…Hoping all my friends have a wonderful fall season…Cheers for now.
I am so grateful to have my family all around me! I cooked for 23 very hungry people…I had roast turkey, baked ham, fish&brews, Jigs dinner, and all the trimmings. Dessert: Bakeapple cheesecake, red berry cheesecake, 3 apple pies,one home made by daughter-in-law Catherine, pumpkin pie, cookies,fruit, and all lots of other goodies as well… I will do the same thing all over again Christmas Day…God willing.
Enjoying our new jet boat
Wishing my hubby of 51 years a Happy Birthday! Sisters Rhoda, Sal, Me, Winnie!
I finally have time to post some of what’s been happening of late.
Fall exercise is on again. Trying to keep in shape.I was invited to be Keynote speaker for a huge event at the Hamilton Convention Centre. 450 people attended. There was a sea of people-needles to say I was shaking in my shoes!
Finally : I am writing again…trying to get my book finished.Cheers Jo

We were away for 4 weeks to Newfoundland and Labrador. First of all we visited his one remaining brother Dolpf in Newfoundland. I feel badly- he had two sisters and six brothers. now ther is only two of them left. We attended COME HOME YEAR in Main Brook NF. th and had a wonderfull time! the weather was beautiful the whole time. Then on to Labrbrador to visit my family. I have five sisters and two brothers. it’s always so good to see them each year. I promised myself |I would go every summer
