    29 2013 Posted in 2013 Family Nostalgic Throwback Thursday On Sunday my cousin Megan is getting married We re all pretty excited because on my mom s side of the family there are only six kids grandchildren amongst my mom and her two sisters My grandparents are very proud of all of us and seeing a granddaughter get married is definitely on the list of proud moments for a grandparent I didn t realize it until today but the last time we were all at a wedding was mine six years ago I also realize that I don t have a photo with my cousins from my wedding but I am happy to say that we started taking a group photo with my grandparents the following year at Christmas and I ll share that some other day perhaps I think we re celebrating Nanny s birthday in 1989 L R Me Nanny Laura Adam Steven and Megan Standing in the back Keith Growing up the six of us were primarily in the St John s surrounding area and therefore saw each other on a regular basis and very frequently in the spring when we have a lot of birthdays in the span of about three weeks I m not one to get tired of birthday cake but you probably would have if you were hanging out with us back then since everyone usually had their own cake Yes we re all growing up and because I m the second eldest of the cousins my brother being the most senior I m really feeling that my years are starting to stack up My little cousins aren t so little anymore It s really quite shocking at times But I m really proud of them all Unfortunately not all of us will be here for the wedding on Sunday but it doesn t mean we won t all be together in spirit That s how our family rolls no matter where you are or how far away it may seem you re still with us during the important times and we re always thinking of you ThrowbackThursday Stonehenge Posted on August 22 2013 Posted in 2013 Friends Girl Guides Meme Nostalgic Throwback Thursday As I mentioned last week it was 14 years ago that I went on a Guiding trip that allowed me to stay at two of the four World Centres of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts WAGGGS Stacey and I posing at Stonehenge Aug 1999 Even though we were in the United Kingdom and primarily London for barely three days we did manage to get a lot done We saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace which by the way was amazing to see up close and behind the gates we saw the musical Rent ran around London seeing lots of regular touristy things like London Bridge Big Ben etc We also made a special trip to Stonehenge I have to say it was

    or slip and fall in it s unlikely anyone will find your body At the Institute they have seals four to be exact and you can come and watch them play and splash around We didn t stay long because it started to get cool but I was able to grab some decent photos with my Canon 55 250mm lens It s a great zoom lens for the price and I ve been able to use it in a number of situations including last year when my husband was Dragon Boating We have exactly one week left here and I plan to take a lot of photos and possibly video as well Speaking of video I recently created my first video that ideally will be part of a continuing series Feel free to take a look and provide feedback and suggestions I m also planning to try and get some footage while I m home to have for future use and probably another video My Camera May Have a Cold or Worse Posted on February 4 2009 Posted in Family NL Photography I really enjoy taking photos Since receiving my Canon SLR Rebel XTi last year for my birthday my very awesome husband surprised me with it just before we left for a long weekend in Montreal to visit my cousin Megan I ve been very pleased with the unique shots I ve been able to capture I m a little frustrated right now because my camera seems to be glitchy and is corrupting files left right and centre I did contact Downtown Camera and chatted with someone about the situation It was suggested that I reinstall the latest firmware upgrade It seemed to improve things but I m a little weary because the corrupted files are still happening but not as frequently There s a bit of a dead lock situation as such right now too If I have the camera sent away to be examined by Canon I won t get it back in time for the cruise we re going on during the first week of March long time friends Jason and Heidi are getting married while we re in Grand Cayman But I have concerns that it will be hard to detect when corruptions occurs and losing some fantastic photos really bugs me So for now I think I ll just try to take multiple shots when provided with a good photo opportunity going forward and until after the cruise But once we return if I m still having file issues then I really have no choice but to send the camera away and hope that there s something that can be done At the end of the day it could mean my camera is replaced but I would be happy to have it simply repaired because I ve shared some fantastic adventures with the camera and am not ready to call it quits just yet My camera is an extension of me when I m

    the questions I m hoping my friend Steve can help me edit the videos to mash up both Mark and Darleen s answers to be something fun they can watch together I love coming home to visit Newfoundland will always be my home no matter where I live It s hard to explain but there s just something about being here that puts your soul at easy and leaves you feeling connected to the land On Saturday Darleen the bride along with two of the other bridesmaids Stacey and Sabrina and I took the bride out to spend the day doing some fun things before the Bachelorette We went out for lunch and then headed out to Logy Bay to visit Memorial University s Marine Institute This is a beautiful area but you have to be so careful if you try to go near the water It looks lovey and you want to go down on the rocks and get close to the crashing waves but if you get swept up or slip and fall in it s unlikely anyone will find your body At the Institute they have seals four to be exact and you can come and watch them play and splash around We didn t stay long because it started to get cool but I was able to grab some decent photos with my Canon 55 250mm lens It s a great zoom lens for the price and I ve been able to use it in a number of situations including last year when my husband was Dragon Boating We have exactly one week left here and I plan to take a lot of photos and possibly video as well Speaking of video I recently created my first video that ideally will be part of a continuing series Feel free to take a look and provide feedback and suggestions I m also planning to try and get some footage while I m home to have for future use and probably another video ADMB Posted on April 18 2009 Posted in communication PR technology Abbreviations Drive Me Bonkers No doubt I m not the first person to feel this way but when abbreviations are used without an explanation at all how is a mere observer or reader who has stumbled upon the scene suppose to understand Example I was on Ravelry and came across a pattern that referred to a shawl KAL it s one of the most popular patterns right now Huh KAL What the hell is that After a thorough Google search I finally found out that it means knit along Now that s all fine and good but I m more annoyed that I had to actively search for a term and felt helpless and confused when I first read the term until I used the magical power of teh tubes As someone who is in Public Relations I know the importance of communicating your message to a broad audience And that s when jargon
