I came across your site as I was visiting Tina's Banners and Tags this morning. I'm a newby at Yuku.com; and I'm trying to find my way around the
various forums---especially the Signature Forums.
So far, I truly like the Yuku layout and all the different things you can do on the boards. I think the Personal Profile page is a real asset; and should help
to make the numerous groups/forums even more friendly and inviting. It's always great to be able to put the face with the written word, eh?
Although I'm originally from the beautiful Commonwealth of Virginia, I now reside in Ottawa, Ontario. Except for the tremendous amount of snowfall and
frigid temperatures, Ottawa is almost a carbon copy of Richmond, Virginia. My beautiful and adoring late husband, John-Charles, was a Canadian. Upon his
retirement from his engineering career of 43 years, we built our home (1994) here in Nepean (a suburb of Ottawa). Even though neither of us have family here
in Canada, I decided to remain here---after his death---as this is where our beautiful life began.
I'm also a member of The Ladies' Red Hat Society---but through their web site. Although there are more than 30 clubs here in Ottawa, all the
memberships in each are filled at the moment. Two years ago, I attended the first annual meeting of the RHS held here in Canada. It took place in Niagara
Falls. What a beautiful sight to have a meeting; and I was not disappointed with all the various activities which took place over a three-day weekend.
Due to the sad state of the economy in today's world, I am saddened by the fact that RHS has had to cut back in so many areas of their organization.
Still, it is a wonderful group of lovely ladies; and we can still have fun regardless of the financial picture. I'm so happy to be a part of such a
fantastic group of ladies; and perhaps one day, our paths may cross. That would be exciting.
May your week be filled with lots of sunshine, happiness, and good health.
