Felicia Goldstein comes to Tillsonburg by way of New York, New York; Montreal, Quebec and London, Ontario. While studying at McGill University the radio bug bit her. There she was the 6 o'clock news girl on the university's radio station but being the practical woman that she is, she went to Teacher's College where she became a high school English teacher. After 25 years as an English as a Second Language teacher the fever struck again.

She enthusiastically returned to radio and has been at Easy 101 since 2007.  Being a virtual insomniac, the evenings that she spends at CKOT are both a joy and a delight!

37th Wedding Anniversary!!!!

My husband David and I are about to celebrate out 37th wedding anniversary.  I have the same problem every year....what do you get a man who doesn't need anything? David is very good at going out and buying himself "stuff." He doesn't need me to tag along when he picks out a new pair of pants or a new shirt. He is prefectly capable of making his own fashion choices and for the most part he looks pretty darn good. If he needs a new tool or a new appliance, he goes out and gets it. He buys his own favorite beverages and his own athletic equipment. So what's a wife to do? Like any modern woman I went to the internet and typed in "37th wedding anniversary" for gift ideas. Although I didn't find out anything I didn't already know, I was surprised by this quote from myanniversary.com

"There is no traditional or modern gift associated with the 37th wedding anniversary, possibly because when the list of gifts was being devised it wasn’t expected that people would actually want to celebrate this year."

I think that if I can't find "the perfect gift" I'll just read that quote to him. Job done :)

It's the Canada Day long weekend and there will be plenty of fun filled family activity.  And perhaps your family includes some furry four-legged friends. The questions is, how can you keep your pets safe and secure throughout the hoilday? Follow these tips and you'll have plenty of happy tail wagging:

• Don’t leave pets unsupervised around a pool or lake. Not all dogs are good swimmers.

• Everyone in your boat should wear a lifejacket. Including your pet!

• Avoid feeding your pet extras from the grill or table. Any change in your pet’s normal diet can result in an upset stomach or diarrhea.

• Skip the insect repellant. Avoid lathering your pet with any bug spray not intended for pets. Many insect repellants meant for humans contain DEET which can cause neurologic problems in dogs and cats.

• Remember that your pooch may not like crowds. If you are going to large gatherings at parks, it might be best to leave your dog at home.

• Keep your pet away from matches, citronella candles and lighter fluid. Any of these substances, if eaten can irritate the stomach, lungs and central nervous system.

• Supervise your pet extremely carefully around campfires and home fireworks. Ideally keep them away from either one. If your dog doesn’t like fireworks.

• Have enough drinking water for both yourself and your pet. “Nature’s dog bowls”—puddles, ponds and streams—may contain parasites.

 

Packing tips for your summer vacation!

With summer just around the corner, you may be taking a vacation or two. So what's the best way to pack your bags for maximum efficiency? Follow these simple tips and your valise will hold way more than you expect and you'll be wrinkle free:

Pack less clothing
Three is the magic number. Here is a simple formula that really works: Pack three tops for every bottom. You can wear a pair of pants or a skirt several times. Also, pack three pairs of shoes: sneakers, casual and formal.

Roll and fold
If you're using a duffel bag, roll everything. If you're using any other type of luggage, only roll knits, such as T-shirts. Fold everything else that has more structure, such as blazers and pants.

Fight wrinkles
First, choose fabrics that don't wrinkle, such as blends containing nylon, Lycra and polyester. Textured fabrics and busy prints can hide wrinkles. To help prevent wrinkles, line the bottom of your luggage with a plastic garbage bag. After you have packed, add another one on top. The slippery surface keeps creases from setting.

Arrange contents strategically
Pack shoes and other heavy items near the suitcase's wheelbase; this will prevent it from tipping over. Then layer the rest in this order: packing cubes, rolled garments, folded clothes and bulky sweaters or jackets. Anything that is easily crushed should be placed on top.

Maximize every nook
Line your belts around the bag's perimeter. Stuff socks into the shoes. Place underwear into the molded cups of bras, which prevents the foam from crinkling. Jewelry and ties should go in the side pockets. Store earrings in pill boxes and thread delicate necklaces through drinking straws, taping the clasps to each end.

Workers are out repairing and improving our roadways and need your cooperation to ensure they make it home safely to their families each day.

Drivers are asked to follow these steps to make our roadways safe for everyone this season:

  • Slow down in construction zones – drive at the posted reduced speed limit
  • Don’t text or look down at your phone – pay attention
  • Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle infront of you – sudden stops are common in construction zones
  • Obey road closure signs and follow posted detour routes
  • Road closures are applicable to vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists
  • Obey the signs and flag persons
  • Refrain from encroaching onto municipal road allowances
  • Refrain from tracking mud onto the roads

More information on safe driving can be found on the Ontario Ministry of Transportation's website.

I am a big fan of eggs! They are low in calories and there are so many ways to prepare them.  Interestingly, how you enjoy your eggs can reval a lot about your personality.  What is your favorite?

  • Sunny-side up: You are an optimist and easy going.
  • Hard-boiled: You're a no-nonsense type. You're quick to form opinions.
  • Soft-boiled: You're gentle, sensitive, neat - but you're not always easy to please.
  • Scrambled: You're agreeable and very steady. You go with the flow.
  • Over easy: You are very precise. You know exactly what you want out of life.
  • Poached: You are very orderly - you don't like to see anything out of its place.
  • Omelets: You enjoy taking risks.
