Let’s Have a Frost Fair!

Let’s Have a Frost Fair!

Here in Calgary, Canada, we’ve been pretty lucky this winter. Though we had some snow and cold in November and early December, since then it’s been largely mild temperatures and very little snow.

A Few Thoughts and a Giveaway!

A Few Thoughts and a Giveaway!

There are a couple of things which have been on my mind of late which I thought I would share. Incidentally, as a side note, I’ve noticed in looking at my past posts, that I typically post information about myself, updates, book excerpts, and the like.
