Rewards Greater Than Money

by Elspeth Grafton

 

We do things we need to for money.

We do things we want to for joy.

We do things challenging for those we love.

With luck, patience, and gratitude, rewards are greater than money

 

 

THAT encapsulates my time shooting in Regina.

Women Worth Knowing: Meet Stephanie

Posted by Lane on July 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM Comments comments (0)

Eamon was the best man at our wedding, and Eamon has one of the neatest families I've ever met.  All his siblings are interesting, lovely people, who are married to interesting, lovely people.   You really couldn't find a better group of people.   One of those wonderful people is Stephanie.

 

I met Stephanie a few years back, when Eamon threw a birthday party for his then-girlfriend, now wife Christina.  Stephanie was fresh from her home sta...

Women Worth Knowing: Meet Casey

Posted by Lane on June 30, 2011 at 10:34 AM Comments comments (1)

I was having a really bad day.  Like, a crying at my desk bad day.  I don't remember how I got there, other than following links through various and sundry websites, like Alice going through doors, but suddenly I was there.  And it only took a few blinks and a scroll down before I was hopelessly and happily lost in Elegant Musings, and have been ever since.

 

It had to do with the soft, muted colors, ...

WWK Presents: Renae Perry, Director of Programs at The Senior Source

Posted by Lane on June 21, 2011 at 12:38 PM Comments comments (0)

Last Saturday, Renae Perry joined us from The Senior Source to talk about the programs her group offers to Senior Citizens, and about why our seemingly silly sock drive is truly important for frail and elderly men and women in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

 

The statistic that 60% of all nursing home residents go full calendar years without ever receiving a visitor is staggering, but we're going to make that year a little brighter!

Gratitude and Patience

I was having a bad day - a really, REALLY bad day when I made that last blog entry. I’m human. It happens to all of us. What’s different today? Have I won the lottery? Found a job, found the man of my dreams, bought a new car, righted the wrongs of the world? No. But today I feel better – good in fact. I might feel differently tomorrow, but I’m holding onto this feel...

Women Worth Knowing: Meet Jenn

Posted by Lane on June 16, 2011 at 4:12 PM Comments comments (3)

I do believe in love at first sight, and that's what I had when June brought her business partner, Jenn, to a WWK Event.  I knew a little of her through June already, but have had the pleasure of her company a few times since then, and I just like her more every time I see her.  She is genuine and positve, and had a really wonderful attitude about life in general.

 

We laughed about how she is faculty at my former high school, and it was a lot of fun to talk with he...

Spoiled: A Review

Posted by Lane on June 15, 2011 at 12:12 PM Comments comments (1)

I've been a fan of the Fug Girls (Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan) for at least decade, following them to Go Fug Yourself from various places on the web. I was excited to hear they were publishing their first YA novel, and was looking forward to seeing my favorite scenes from Dynasty, and Lace, the original 90210, and Sweet Valley High playing themselves out on the modern page. I was not disappointed.

Women Worth Knowing: Meet Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan a/k/a The Fug Girls

Posted by Lane on June 14, 2011 at 8:11 PM Comments comments (34)

Years and years ago, I followed a friend's LiveJournal icon to a little website called Television Without Pity, and there I found my people.  Among those people were Pamela Ribon, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, who each recapped several shows for the site. Pamela went on to publish several excellent and hilarious books, and to write for television.  Heather and Jessica went on to create Go Fug Yourself, a site which is pr...

The Evolution of a Domestic Engineer

Posted by Lane on June 14, 2011 at 7:56 PM Comments comments (2)

by Jamie Anne Grimes


 

Lane has asked me to take a few large steps out of my comfort zone and tell you more about little, old me. I love talking about gardens, saving money on groceries and making wonderful food, but I tend to clam up when it comes time to talk about myself. Where to begin?


My name is Jamie, I answer to Mom, honey also. I recently turned 40. I've been ...
