Sandy, Sandy, Sandy

If it weren’t for the danger and destruction she can and will cause, she is simply magnificent in stature.


And now….

Personal Note: Thankful for the warm & safe environment at home even if the rain and winds are lashing out madly. Our heart goes out to our neighbours south of the border: those who lost lives, loved ones, property, earnings, amenities and even warm food. TDPP joins in prayers and relief effort: made my first donation today and will hopefully donate some more this weekend. Please keep the east-coasters in your prayers, thoughts and mind and please help in any which way you can.


Dear TDPP Friends: Can You Please Spare A Prayer For Bianca?

I have never seen Bianca, not even a photograph. But through her mom- Judith, I’ve been cheering/wishing/praying for key moments of her life these past twelve years: -her marriage, her first time home, her child-care business, her first born Matthew and then her younger son James. You see, her mother Judith is one of my steadfast friends from my early days in Canada.  Judith is one of those unique and wonderfully helpful person.

There has not been a single X-mas time without Judith’s thoughtful card wishing my son Shiv and me. Even though we moved several times – she kept pace with us. She is a trusted friend, well-wisher, my real-estate agent and my cheerleader.  Both Judith and Bianca were immigrants like Shiv & me except they came maybe a decade or so earlier than us. Since coming here, Judith as a single mother worked so hard for her beloved daughter Bianca.

Yesterday,  I got an email from Judith, stating that her beautiful, courageous and hardworking daughter suddenly took ill and will be undergoing surgery within weeks. I know not anything more nor do I need to know anything more. I will and I know you all will too keep Bianca closer to your hearts in your prayers. Please, please, please, pray for Bianca!

My New Favourite

………………….is The Newsroom.

I can’t seem to get enough of this show. I am loving this show as much as I loved JAG. Can’t wait for the next episode. In 2008 election cycle I was riveted to CNN and since this past year I am more an online-MSNBC viewer. Is that  why I feel so very connected with this show?  I don’t know but am loving every minute I spend on this show…..
