Through Rose Coloured Glasses
I hope people will take the time to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies and acknowledge the sacrifices of our war veterans, even though it falls on a Sunday. This year it is more important than ever to celebrate this day. Each war which our men and women have fought in is important, but this year our focus will be on World War I. On November 11, it will be one hundred years since the end of World War I. The last WWI veteran passed away in 2010. It is important to remember the soldiers who fought to keep us safe and free, even if they are no longer here to be acknowledged.
“The Secret Society of Happy People”. The name itself intrigued me when I first saw it some ten years ago and I had to find out what the Secret Society of Happy People was all about. The more I discovered about this on-line club, the more I loved its concept.
This year, there was no gradual transformation from summer to fall. Autumn has come early and it came quickly. It seems we went to bed one night while it was summer and awoke the next morning to fall. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler and the leaves are quickly turning colour. The summer warmth has been replaced by cooler days and cold evenings.
