Summer kick off..June 18 wknd

With the hot weather finally  here and looks like it’s sticking around, I headed to my first series of festivals. On Friday June 16, my daughter  and I checked out the Taste of Toronto which was  a bit disappointing.  The entrance fee was a bit much and the food was no more than sampling portions.  Plus it rained and cut our evening short. Nonetheless, It was still a blast hanging out.

On sat June 17. Me , my sis , mom and her girlfriend headed to Mississauga Waterfront Festival in Port credit #Mississauga. It was  a great evening just hanging out in the midway and taking a stroll along the waterfront. Ending the nite without satisfying your sweet tooth would be meaningless. We bumped into an amazing little booth that served us up a dessert to die for.. waffles and shakes combo with endless amount of fresh fruit topping either ice cream and whip cream. Yum yummy.. #fruititup.. Drew, the owner,  killed it with  great service  It is certainly a great way to top off the nite and the weekend.

Another Black History Month has come and gone. What have you learnt?

“Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln”

‘Why is it that Black History Month Celebration happens on the shortest month of the year?  There is the answer, in short.

I think that we should not focus on the length of the month, be it short or long, but rather see it as an opportunity to share. Yes, there exist this amazing platform, to learn more and to share more of what we learn.  No doubt we should be doing that every day or at every given chance we get, but let’s be realistic, in the midst of our chaotic and busy lives, that is not going to happen at ALL times…

So when February comes around and we have a whole vast of events, activities, entertainment etc. ,that is Black History focused, take the opportunity  to get out and get that extra information, that either you had no time to get for yourself, or wasn’t even aware of and in turn share that information so others can learn as well and be empowered. Believe it or not, when February comes around, people are in that BHM state of mind and with social media we can share so much more.

BHM 2017, was the same for me as every other year.  I enjoyed a few events,  met a few amazing people and expanded my knowledge a bit more. This year, I learned about the Black Wall Street. That imagery and story will stay with me for quite a while. This was shared via social media and I am so blessed to have been a part of that circle.

So now that the “public” celebration of BHM 2017 is wrapped up for another year, share with us what is the one thing you have learnt this year that you didn’t know before or something that has changed you in one way or another. This story has impacted me and I am sharing it in the hope of knowledge gain is knowledge shared. Remember always Black History is World History.

NATIONAL DRINK WINE DAY, WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US?

Today Feb 18th is National Drink Wine Day across USA..  But what about Canada and the rest of the world? I think  there should be a Canada Drink Wine Day, or better yet it should be Global or International Drink Wine Day.. That way we can all celebrate together.. According to the official website, the purpose of the Drink Wine Day is to spread the love and health benefits of wine. So where is the love? 

Today, in support and celebration of a Global Drink Wine Day, I will start with 1 glass or maybe 3.. ( 1 for me, 1 for you and 1 to share )..care to join me?

Drink Well, Drink Responsibly and as Always Wine Matters With Everything!!!

The purpose of National Drink Wine Day is to spread the love and health benefits of wine. Wine has played an important role in history, religion and relationships. We embrace the positive benefits of wine such as new friends, reduced risk of heart disease and the enhancement of food and life”.

Giving it all

This project is long over due. I love beating the streets and trying new foods and finding great treasures in the city. I just thought it would be a great idea to share it. I have always been the go to person for events..SO hear I am.
