Other Interests

While at Sheridan College, I got my first taste of web design, but it lay dormant for several years, until I volunteered to set up a web site for a then-new charity Starthrower Foundation.

After setting up the Starthrower Foundation site, I set up my own site,, on which I continue to work. I find web site design and maintenance endlessly absorbing and challenging, and a lot of fun!

I also write my own travel blog ~ Snapshot-Travel-Blog and Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens.

Evelyn Hannon at, a Toronto Canada-based website for travellers, was a fabulous support and mentor in travel and writing about travel.
