How I learn about my computer

Back to see my Bloggy Buddies!

Hey thanks for taking a look
Just wanted to let you know about a great group of people that I hang with once a month.
Which stands for Region of Waterloo Marketing Group
We meet once a month at the Basil Cafe in Cambridge (YUMMMY).

I first started going a few months back. Since then we've gotten to know the owner of the Cafe & he now knows I like extra foam in my Chai Tea Latte.

The service is great & the food is amazing, but what's more amazing than that?
Well it would be my new Internet Marketing pals!

When we (myself & Diane over at the blog ) 1st went, we weren't sure what if we would fit in as we aren't techy.
As always I like to be "the sponge" & take in all kinds of new info.
We thought we'd learn new ways to help promote MeFest (shameless self promotion of the event)
BOY did we ever learn a lot!
Carol & Melanie are so approachable & put things into terms that newbies like me can understand.
They are a great Mother/Daughter team & are so knowledgeable!
Want to know what surprized me? They were interested in knowing about Facebook & eventually Twitter since I had just stumbled upon that at the time as well.
It's so great to learn & share info between each other.
That's why I always look forward to going.
If you're on twitter here's the @'s of some of the #ROWMKTG members.
@those2girls (Diane & myself) also @hullabaloo519 @TorontoCarol @JackiYo & @WendyHoomo
I know it sounds like an early #FollowFriday to most tweeps out there, but if you are in the Cambridge Ont area on Monday Sept 21st we'd love to meet you there!

My BITCH List Online

Hello everyone
I know that the title of this post is NOT SO SUNNY, but it is something I need to do.
I got the idea from Mandy, who was in the Spring MeFest, over at HerHappyHighness. Here's her a link to her explanation of the Bitch List

Basically it's a list of things that you put off for one reason or another. They are things you need to do, but for whatever reason procrastinate.

My friend Diane over at

put it best when she said it's best to empty these nagging things out of your brain, because you have enough in there already.

Yes I think that they both are on to something.
Now as you know I spend a lot of time online (& not so much on my house), so I thought if I posted this list online & can add to it as needed I'd see these small task & do them.

Right now we have MeFest right around the corner (less than 2 months away) so I need my head & straight & keep my cool when surprizes arise.
I'm starting my list on a Monday & hope by Sunday I can get a few checked off.

If you think this is a great idea as well, please post your list on your blog & list your blog in my comment section. I'd be happy to cheer you on with your list too
(Updated for September, everything I got done, I changed to red)

  1. Online MeFest Posting

  2. Update ALL of my blogs

  3. Pay house insurance that is due at the end of the month

  4. Change all burnt out light bulbs

My Dancing Cloud

Tonight is the 1st great SUMMER night her in KW.
I had stepped out of the Superstore when I thought this is just like a September night in Disney (my FAVE place & my FAVE time of year to go). It was 8:45pm & the weather was perfect, not hot, not cold & as Goldilocks would say it was JUUUUUUUUST Right!
Yes September nights at Disney, on my way to my FAVE Disney show FANTASMIC! I love that show it's spectacular.
But then reality stepped in & I was back at the shopping centre parking lot. Too bad, no Disney memories around here, until I looked up. I saw a cloud that looked like a person dancing. Someone somewhere knew that I needed to see something spectacular at home too.
I quickly grabbed my camera & took a pic. As soon as I did the whole cloud turned red & then dispersed.
Can you see the dancing cloud?

See how it`s really red near the bottom, well after I snapped the photo the whole cloud image turned that colour & then dispersed.
I was so amazed!

Girl Talk Thursday

I'm new to Girl Talk Thursday so I hope I do it write.
This week is about songs that are meaningfull to you.

My Fave's are
This Woman's Work by Kate Bush
The lyrics hit me when I first saw this movie as a teenager, but it's been an anthem for me since I became an adult

Winter by Tori Amos
This is the best video version I can find of the song, but I truly just love the orginal audio for it.
About how life changes, but don't let it change you

Come What May from Moulin Rouge
Reminds me what True love is still out there somewhere

& my all time Fave MOVIE
The Princess Bride
