Congratulations are in Order!

One of our faithful readers: Dave Hingsburger, of Rolling Around in My Head is today being inducted into the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame in the Builder category for his work in the field of disabilities.

Dave has been a colleague for 25 years. I treasure his friendship and admire him tremendously for the courage, integrity and humility he brings to his work. He has made a difference to more lives than can be imagined and continues to inspire, challenge and teach a whole new generation of staff and families.

Congratulations Dave!

Belinda (DF, DB the BP) thanks so much for this. I'm up early, as always and trying to think of what to say. I'm way better at planning a day's lecture than a 60 second one. I appreciate your friends, love and support over all the years we've worked together and known each other.

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))

We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
