REVIEW:
Go Canada!
This book is filled with so many wonderful stories about how great Canada is, and how wonderful the people are that live there. Made me proud to be Canadian reading some the stories of community, helping one another while expecting nothing in return. It restored my faith in humanity a bit. 
I also loved there was famous names, like one story was by NHL legend, Vince Lecalvier. Reading his coming up story, and reading some of the quotes by hockey greats I love like Wendel Clark and Bobby Orr, really made my day. Anytime is the right time for anything hockey.
Yup, I'm Canadian.
This story is a great tribute to this wonderful land and its citizens, but also inspirational to be a better Canadian in this great nation.

5/5

  1. I just love reading those short stores. I have a Chicken Soup for the Scrapbookers soul that I pull out and read every now and then. They do warm the soul.

  2. Sounds like a fun read, Freda. I remember shooting over to Canada from Michigan to see my friend. When I got there it was late at night and the snow drifts were as tall as me. She answered the door in her bathing suit! Had many splendid times there.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
