I've experimented with blogs over the years. The two I've linked here fill in things about me. One is stuff I've wondered and laughed about over the years as the parent of young children, and now, from the other side, with the kids launched. It tells what I was thinking all those sleepless nights, as I lay on the floor of one kid's bedroom, or walked the house wondering where -- or what -- a child had gotten to, and just general stuff that all of us parents go through

The other is about how my family -- the several branches of it -- made their way to Canada, met, married, mated and birthed someone in my background. It's peopled with the characters of my family tree, and perhaps account for why I am who I am. At least partly. Some of the stories I heard from older family members, then fleshed these out by digging through materials on migration patterns, or the political currents of the day, trying to understand why these people would leave behind all that was familiar. For isn't that what everyone's family story is about -- migration? Enjoy!
