Terrified Beginner no longer! by Liz Saunders

I can no longer be considered a terrified beginner, a beginner, definitely, but not so terrified. However, I think every class is going to have its own challenges and therefore terrors.  This week we finished, or mostly finished, our “ribbons” of the week before.  This was an exercise in shading and shadows. Then it wasContinue reading “Terrified Beginner no longer! by Liz Saunders”

Terrified or not, I did it! by Liz Saunders

On Tuesday, March 19th I dragged myself through the door of LucSculpture and Studio to start my Drawing for the Terrified Beginner.  And boy was I terrified;  I actually cried with fear as I drove down Greenwood Avenue.  In the classroom, I held so tightly onto my Starbucks tea, it’s a wonder I didn’t squishContinue reading “Terrified or not, I did it! by Liz Saunders”

Oust-A-Mouse Bait House Exemplifies Exceptional Customer Service by Liz Saunders

Back in the fall, our friends, Wendie and Hugh, came down to Toronto and we went to the Cottage Life Show.   While we were wandering around, I saw a booth displaying various types of insulation and I stopped to chat.  One of my questions was:  is your insulation mouse proof?  The response:  Are you kidding?  Nothing’sContinue reading “Oust-A-Mouse Bait House Exemplifies Exceptional Customer Service by Liz Saunders”

I’ve been instructed to be creative!

Where has the month gone?  I can’t believe I actually managed to type a blog back on January 5th, what with my hand still being really sore from surgery but I guess being pissed off helped.  Thanks to Witchy and some homeopathic remedies, I’m healing well and will be back into the blogging chair soon.Continue reading “I’ve been instructed to be creative!”

ACANAC…Don’t trust them and don’t sign up with them! by Liz Saunders

We moved to our condo a year and a half ago.  At that time, I took the opportunity to switch from Rogers (who I had always hated dealing with) to Distributel DSL.  Turned out that Distributel was no better (ISP-wise) but they were nicer to deal with.  So in October, out of desperation to get myContinue reading “ACANAC…Don’t trust them and don’t sign up with them! by Liz Saunders”

Getting on with life! by Liz Saunders

I can’t believe two weeks have passed since my last blog. During the cruise, when I was in so much pain from my arthritis, I promised myself that when I returned I would get on the phone to my hand and foot surgeon and make appointments.  Well, I like to keep my promises to myselfContinue reading “Getting on with life! by Liz Saunders”

Advantage Car Rentals redeems itself – with good customer service! by Liz Saunders

I recently blogged about our “interesting” experience with Advantage Car Rental in Fort Lauderdale.  Well, having said “don’t use this company”, I take it back. Joe did the research to discover that Advantage Car Rental is owned by Hertz.   He also found the email addresses for Vice President of Hertz, Brian Dickerson and Senior ViceContinue reading “Advantage Car Rentals redeems itself – with good customer service! by Liz Saunders”

It all boils down to customer service! by Liz Saunders

The trip is over.  I type this sitting on the floor of the plane because we’ve got the best leg room ever  right beside the emergency exit.  But I’ve never seen this much leg room, it’s awesome.  One of the best things of this trip. The ship was quite impressive compared to the tug boatContinue reading “It all boils down to customer service! by Liz Saunders”

Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders

In preparation for our vacation, I made a trip to Riverdale Homeopathy on the Danforth to pick up some Calcarea Phorphoric.  This is the most amazing stuff that Witchy Woman suggested I take for pain relief for my arthritis.  The one thing I know about Florida is that while there’s a Dollartree, CVS, Publix, WalgreenContinue reading “Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders”

On our way to Fort Lauderdale…No Wait, Make that Montreal by Liz Saunders

 It has been a very interesting start to our vacation.  First thing this morning, I heard from daughter Siobhan – my computer would not connect to the internet.  This is a serious issue as she’s looking after The Virtual Alternative while I’m away.   I think it might stem from the fact that yesterday IContinue reading “On our way to Fort Lauderdale…No Wait, Make that Montreal by Liz Saunders”
