The story of the attacks Nazi Germany made against Allied shipping in Newfoundland's Conception Bay

Hi again, trying to write another "real" blog. I am writing about something that really pisses me off! Today i'm writing about an event most people don't even know about. Being a proud Newfoundlander, i try to keep abreast of things of history that have a "Newf" twist.One of these things are the wrecks of Allied ships that were sunk off of Bell Island in Newfoundland's Conception Bay(the only place in North America directly attacked by Nazi Germany).Let me give a brief history of the… Continue

Vloggerheads Update

For those few of you who also frequent Vloggerheads, I figured I'd give you an update (or at least communicate what little I know).



A couple of days ago, members were signing on only to find that they were entered into someone else's account, even to the degree that they could see their inbox (remind you of something...?) so Tom, the owner, took it offline and sent a query to Ning. It appears that only a few members were affected (whoever was online at the time) and that it took about… Continue

The internet is a time machine.



Today, against my better judgment, I watched the live feed coming

from the commencement at the university where I worked for 18 years.



That was my last job, where I became ill, and had to quit on disability

in Dec-1999. I was the Photojournalist for the university. A wonderful

and very challenging job which required me to cover almost every possible

activity and event that took place, both on an off campus. I got to meet

and photograph many famous people… Continue

I'm Pregnant

,...with a thirty pound liver baby.


Unfortunately, our road trip this year was not for fun. John and I spent a week at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN last month in the hopes that I might get liver re-section surgery so that I could re-gain some semblance of quality of life but due to the plurality and distribution of my cysts, I am not a candidate for the surgery.
Polycystic liver disease is a hereditary disease caused by mutated genes. Cysts form and then the…

Graduation Day

Today is the day that the campus I work at will be billowing with caps and gowns. I feel a compulsion to greet every student wearing a gown with heartfelt congratulations, even though most of them are self-absorbed on

this day and don't even make eye contact. Their parents follow them around

toting floral arrangements that probably cost what I spend on groceries in a

month. I love this day, because I love my job as an academic advisor and seeing

those…

Memories of my Parents



This is the first in what may become a series of memories I have of my family.



I can't say for sure if this is an actual earliest memory of mine or just feels like it, but

here it is.



When I was a baby, a very round chubby baby, my Parents hired a photographer to

come to our house and take pictures of my brother and me. Well, I was set on the

couch, and I was so roly-poly, I would roll over to my left or right and my Dad had

to keep setting me upright. If… Continue

Tribute



I hope to write some blogs about my Mom and Dad as a tribute to them,

and to share a little of my love for them. I don't know if I'm ready to

do this yet..my heart still hurts.



My Mom used to tell me stories about her amazing life and I would suggest

that she write them down. She told me she started to..I hope I can find her

writings. i had also planned to video her talking about her life, but…
