Tonight, I had the honour of witnessing firsthand the miracle that is...Oprah!

As she visited Calgary for a very short Canadian tour!

She even came out in a white hat, as we're a western city and this is a symbol of our cowboy heritage.

We enjoyed her talk immensely but sadly my iphone battery died after the first two videos.  So I only had a few good photos.

In a way it was better, as I just paid attention with my eyes and ears and heart.

I know she is a polarizing figure to some, but to me, she is a good and sane teacher who can help us all to live our best lives.


  1. What did she say that most impressed you? That dress is beautiful and what a gorgeous color for her.

  2. O yes. Love Oprah. How fun!

  3. that is so great that you saw her. I would love to have gone. She's such an inspiration.

    love her and what she has done.

  5. Great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.

  6. Hi Terri, What fun. I think she is fabulous. What a treat to hear her speak live.

  7. Hi Terri, I just found your blog and am commenting on your headaches. My brother-in-law suffered from debilitating headaches for years. His doctors had no good treatment for him, but he was on drugs and oxygen. Out of desperation he and his wife decided to work on his nutrition and he found that eating greens--spinach, chard, kale--completely took his headaches away and he's been headache free for over a year. He's also stopped taking the meds and oxygen. His doctor does not believe the change in diet is the cause of his relief as it doesn't make sense. But you do what works, regardless. I don't know if your situation is the same as his, but perhaps this change in diet or something similar will help you. By the way, there are support groups for headache sufferers and he did find his group very helpful. Susan

    1. Thanks for your info Susan. You are very kind to write. Yes, I follow several headache blogs, etc. I am happy for your brother-in-law and maybe diet might help me also! :)

    Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work?
    I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
    one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam
    responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can
    you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?

    Many thanks, I appreciate it!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post's to be what precisely I'm looking for.
    Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
    I wouldn't mind creating a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome web site!

    Hi there! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a
    theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!
