The following, framed snapshot depicts Judy's 100th donation of blood products (whole blood, plasma or platelets). To quote her:

"Many donors of course have far surpassed this goal - in fact one Ottawa donor has made 400 plus donations! I am not bragging, just letting you know that we CAN make a difference in some small way in this world. If I have helped to alleviate one person's pain or helped to save one life... "




But wait, there's more !!!


On 6 July 2010, Judy received an award with covering letter from Canadian Blood Services recognizing her 150th blood donation - a truly remarkable achievement!!! Just click on the Canadian Red Cross icon at left to get the details.

Australian Connections


    Leif had a wonderful one year term in Sydney, Australia covering the 1999 - 2000 time frame.   His experience in vehicle emissions testing helped him procure this position. The job was a 12-month engineering management training exchange position with the New South Wales state government. To read about his impressions of Australia, and see some photos, click on the Kangaroo!


    We (Judy & Garry) succeeded in visiting Leif at his Bondi Beach apartment over the Millenium Christmas and New Years to help him celebrate and had a fantastic time, albeit too short. To read all about our adventure, and see some of the beautiful Australian scenery we saw, just click on the Koala.


 Wendy enjoyed a pre-marriage honeymoon to Australia in February and March of 2000. She and Leif's holiday itinerary included Bali & Bangkok (Thailand), Tokyo, Auckland, etc., then back to Sydney. To read about her fabulous trip, just click here!


May signals the start of the annual golf season.

    I don't particularly enjoy the game, but it's about the only form of exercise my aging body now permits. You must admit it is a very inefficient and time-consuming way to transport a small ball from one location to another (especially the way I do it)! The good news is that I don't seem to have lost my touch; the bad news is that I never had much of a touch. Oh well, hope springs eternal. To see and read about my (our) golf antics, just click here.

    Just remember - "Golf" spelled backward is "Flog".  

Coincidence? I think not!
