    Ahhh, Manitoba! I have a friend out in Brandon. In Manitoba is the first time I've been to a bar with a bull ride...it was actually pretty cool (didn't do the ride though).

    There's a FB site from Australia that the Canadian Home Daycare United's founder has discovered and she's in touch with the founder of that. Family Daycare Educators United is the Australian group and they've been holding marches all across Australia. She said that change is possible as they're discovering. Sooooo....that might be a good read for some of you from other provinces. I don't know....I thought it sounded really great and I look forward to learning more about it when I slow down with the stuff I'm currently ensconced in.

    Thanks for your well wishes 5LM

    Ok cfred, you got me, but it took 4 attempts to remember my password, haha. I applaud all of your hard work and I know you've done more than most to educate other caregivers. You don't want any hardworking caregiver in Ontario to be subjected to a $200,000 fine (about the equivalent of 7 years of income before deductions) because they didn't hear about Bill 10's new laws regarding their business. You have spread the word and worked with MPP Lisa McLeod and Garfield Dunlop and CICPO, who have been on our side and fighting for us. You have been dignified, professional, wise and wonderful! Thank you so much! Ok, I'm gone again, lol!!!!!

    I'm not going to brag, but one year I almost won.
    I was runner up in the tournament. I was much younger of course. Haha!

    Might have been Houstons....pretty big place as I remember. The bull was attached to 4 ropes with guys pulling from the corners. Wow....small world!

    I contemplated riding the bull, but chickened out in the end. I commend you for actually riding a tournament!

    I'm taking over the one in Whitby on Feb 15th from 1pm-2:30pm at Montana's (75 Consumer Drive, Whitby). If anyone is in a reasonable driving distance and wants to come over, please feel free. Lisa's awesome...and a hugger This event will also be 100% bill 10 and I'll be reaching out to Montessori schools over the next week. You can RSVP me at c.a.fredenburgh@gmai l.com. We had a really good crowd at the Newmarket event and I'd love to repeat that. Really good networking opportunity!
