I love jazz, and feel it is the ideal type of music to have playing in a cafe or restuarant.
It is unobtrusive, (at least the artists I pick, are) and MOST people like it, even if they aren’t aware that they do…
I’d have on my playlist, anything by Miles Davis
because it is relaxing, warm, and because Miles is UBER cool.
I’d HAVE to have Diana Krall
She is a wonderful artist,(from British Columbia, Vancouver Island, too!) and as with Miles’ offerings, her style is warm and relaxed; perfect for background music but definitely NOT bland…
Dave Koz is a must as well…
Dave Koz is a very talented smooth jazz trumpet player..
You can listen to him on smooth jazz

What, if any TV do you watch , even though you have seen it many times before?
I guess because the writing is so witty, and more importantly, because the characters truly are believable.
Their triumphs and failures are compassionately depicted and one feels as though they are indeed true friends.
I am sure I am not the only one who wished that they had friends like this!
Two and a Half Men
I feel, again, that the show is well written and the characters, while perhaps annoying as are still entertaining.
The interesting thing is, that in the main role are intelligent strong women (perhaps not ALWAYS likeable but that is like true life)
Charlie and Alan seem very bewildered about women much of the time, and according to my husband, this is quite honest..lol!
A good dinner!

Six years ago, I lost my job of 24 years.
I and many others were laid off by the provincial government and the department was taken over by a private company.
I tried working with the new company but it was dreadful.
My husband said, “they are not treating you well; get out of there, you can find a better job”
It was SCARY.
At 49, not many jobs are available.
We all tend to generalize about age and what is possible at different ages in life.
It is stupid as obviously everyone is different; some are old at 20 and others are fantastically vibrant and capable at 75.
Companies are especially guilty of this generalization; it is called ageism.
I spent the next few months in a horrible void; going from place to place, getting interviews but never obtaining the job.
I was also having to collect unemployment insurance (an organization which excels in making the unfortunate individual feel like a criminal)
I finally got a job in which I was getting minimum wages; and having to “multi task” while the younger staff fooled around, skiving out ot the heavier work and generally not working as a team. The supervisors knew that this was going on but didn’t care.
Finally, I quit.
The bosses were shocked(as I WAS a good worker) and begged me to stay on but it was too little, too late.
The VERY next day, I found an ad in the paper; applied and was successful in getting hired at our local university.Now I have been here for 5 years, things are great, I am treated with respect and the pay and benefits are wonderful.
It was meant to happen!
