"This little town of Tara has used a "play on words" very nicely ....... "
"Tara boasts quite a few businesses lined along each side of it's streets.
"This is the Tara Legion where I have been attending the VON SMART course the past few weeks. It is such a nice Legion, boasting a newer addition at the back of the building of which an outside patio goes off of."
Once we had covered the required material for this day, we had a "bonus", as Cathy had invited Judy Porteous, Area Manager, Bruce/Grey/Dufferin Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy, of Osteoporosis Canada to come speak to us. Let me tell you, did that 1 1/2 hours ever go fast. I could have sat another hour or so listening to more of what Judy had to say on Osteoporosis.
Should Osteoporosis Canada be so happy to have such an upbeat informative representative in all their areas .... thanks so much, Judy.
As many as 2 million Canadians suffer from osteoporosis.
The cost of treating osteoporosis and the fractures it causes is estimated to be $1.9 billion each year in Canada alone. Long term, hospital and chronic care account for the majority of these costs. Given the increasing proportion of older people in the population, these costs will likely rise.
The reduced quality of life for those with osteoporosis is enormous. Osteoporosis can result in disfigurement, lowered self-esteem, reduction or loss of mobility, and decreased independence.
For more extensive information on Osteoporosis, please go to their website, as it will be well worth your browsing time: http://www.osteoporosis.ca/index.php/ci_id/6385/la_id/1.htm
I have noticed a few Facebook challenges going on the past couple of days for people to donate to their local Foodbanks to make ready for the fast approaching Christmas Season. One of these challenges have been made by Kraft Canada ~ Kraft Food for Families !!!
There will be a bonus of $10,000.00 going to the local Foodbank with the names showing the most support. As of this morning the Owen Sound was leading with 6,410 names.
There is no cost incurred by us, so please show your support by going to the Kraft Food for Families website and adding your name. Here is the website:
Please "bookmark" this website, as you are able to go in daily and re-add your name until January 31st, 2012! Thanks KRAFT CANADA !!!
Food, one of my most favorite subjects. One of Cindy's Recipe Exchange members posted a Pepsi Cola Rib Recipe the other day. Since I have been doing the "Don't buy any Meat until the Meat in my Freezer Is Used Up" Challenge, I am thinking I could "use up" some ribs I have in there by trying this recipe out.
Since I also love sharing, I thought I would share the recipe with others so they may try it out as well:
Trust me, if my friend Reenie says they are to "die" for, take that to the bank !!! I am thinking maybe tomorrow Rob and I will be having ourselves some "to die for" ribs for our Dinner.
"Oh yeah, almost forgot. Another reason I didn't mind "Tarrying Awhile in Tara", I was able to take my own picture there!! LOL."
Let see now, yesterday was a damp, wet, but not too cold of a day; at 5:00 a.m. it was not too cold this morning, but extremely windy when Mercedes and I were out there ..... so what will the rest of the day be like? Must go see ....
Not too promising, but of course when one has no choice, one tends to make the best of things .... You must think positively. Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story. The mind must believe it can do something before it is capable of actually doing it.
I think at the moment I will be positively taking something for this headache I do not want to be nursing the whole day through, get the woodstove fired up to take the chill from the house and maybe then have myself a second cup of Java to "kickstart" myself for rest of the day ahead.
Not only is there another new day ahead of me, but surely there will also be a new adventure to go along with it, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
