Seasons Greetings!

Hi Everyone,

I must apologise for the time period, it has indeed been a very long time since I last wrote.

I have been busy with my book and giving presentations to various lovely groups all around Central Alberta but as Christmas approaches I am taking time out to just spend with my family, no book writing or giving presentations, just a time to be with my family.  I shall resume book writing and presentations in the New Year, you know where I am if you would like to book one.

I hope that this Christmas time is a pleasant and peaceful one for you all, the wonderful thing about this time of year is that you don't have to be anything special to enjoy it to it's fullest potential, Christmas is for all, regardless of whether you celebrate the day or not, there is something magical about this time of year, it is possibly because it is has the shortest day of the year and the longest night, and that once that has passed, the nights become shorter and the days longer and brighter, giving hope to all; or perhaps it is because we are at the end of the year and the prospect of a New Year brings with it endless possibilities of what may or may not happen, it gives us all hope, or it could be that this time of year we become children in our hearts once more, I know I for one still go outside on Christmas Eve, near midnight, and listen, just in case I hear those bells that let's us know that Father Christmas is on his way - silly - maybe, but I still hope.

Oh my it has been awhile

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I must apologise for the delay in writing my blog, so much happening here that time just flies by.

My book is coming along nicely, my ever hopeful 'it will be out in the fall' timeline has slipped to the early part of the New Year, which isn't a bad thing as the research I have been doing just keeps coming up with more and more interesting and new facts, as the song goes'things that make you go hmmmm'.

I must again give you all a BIG THANK YOU!

A little up-date

Hi Everyone,

I do hope that you are all well and are staying safe wherever you are in the world.

A BIG THANK YOU to all of you, I have now had FORTY FOUR THOUSAND, FOUR HUNDRED and FORTY FOUR visitors! WOW!

Once again so much has happened over the last few weeks.  I've been giving private presentations mainly in the afternoons which as has been wonderful for me as they all had traditional afternoon tea which means lots of cakes!

I shall let you all know a little nearer the time of publishing what it called and I have also been working on a new presentation which I have added to my repertoire and it is proving very popular - it's called Whitechapel Murders - a new look at the victims and suspects.

A quick Up-date

Hi Everyone<

I hope you are all well and enjoying the warmer weather now that it has arrived.

I have been busy working on my book, doing a few tweaks here and there and getting it ready for publishing in the Fall; I never realised how much work goes onto writing and I am thinking that if there is a next time I shall write a picture book - less words! Lol.  I have also been putting a new presentation together to work along side my book all about the Whitechapel Murders so if you are looking for a something a little different drop me a line or call me and we can make a booking, and I know that we have only just started to go into Summer, but I am taking bookings for Halloween and dates and times are going fast so if you would like one of my presentations whether it is my normal one, or a speciality one on prisoners, torture and executions of my new one on Whitechapel Murders then please contact me sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

What I've been up to

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

This weekend saw me at Ironwood Retirement Home in St Albert giving a presentation to a small group of residents on Sunday afternoon.

I had a wonderful time and met with lovely residents who kept me talking for two straight hours! So they must have enjoyed it.  One gentleman came up to my afterwards to tell me how much he had enjoyed the presentation and that it he'd never 'Seen anyone able to talk with such enthusiasm, passion and humour for over two hours' and that it was a joy to listen to.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and are enjoying Spring now that it has eventually turned up.

Well I must start with an apology as it has been far too long since I last up-dated my website and blog life here has been pretty hectic and time has just flown by.

Thank you to all of you who sent me well wishes after my surgery I do appreciate your kind words and thoughts and I am now on the mend with only the occasional 'ouch' every now and then.

A BIG THANK YOU to all of you for visiting my web site, I have now had over FORTY THOUSAND  visitors - that's amazing, thank you!

Wow what an evening

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying what now looks like spring.

I have had a busy few weeks with presentations and I have a few more coming up in the next few weeks too.

Thank you to all have come out to see them and thank you to all who have asked me to come along and give a presentation at their events; I have had a blast.

The most recent group I presented to was theAlberta Genealogical Society Edmonton Branch, England and Wales special interest group, lovely people and such an attentive audience; it was a lot of fun that evening - thank you for inviting me along.

What's happening

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

Well it's officially the first day of Spring and as usual here in the West it's snowing and the temperature has dropped from a lovely mild plus 11 to minus 4, never mind it should start to pick up again in a week or so.

I'm busy preparing for  up-coming presentations and answering requests for prisoner names, a few of which came from titled gentlemen in the UK who wished to find out more about their family's adventures as 'guests' of the Tower; it's not everyday that you get to add a few Lords, Viscounts.

What's been happening

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

Last Friday saw the week rounded off nicely with a presentation to the St Albert Retired Teachers Association which was held in the Sturgeon Golf Club.

It was a breakfast presentation and one that I truly enjoyed and I am assured that those who attended also enjoyed it.  It was a packed meeting and an extra table had to be set so I believe the attendance was around the 115 persons mark.

What a wonderful group of people and a superb breakfast too.  Thank you for my gift I shall be using it soon.

First month of the year almost gone!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

Wow tomorrow is the last day of the first month of the year, where does the time go?

I'm giving a presentation to the St Albert Retired Teachers Association tomorrow morning - I am looking forward to it I'm just deciding now whether to give them a test at the end of it and maybe some homework too........hmmmm I shall think on that some more lol.

I have to say another BIG THANK YOU to all of you, I now have had over 25,000 visitors to my website - I am truly humbled by such a wonderful response and to have confirmation that I am producing what you want to see, read and learn about - Thank you!
