Let’s Not Forget

Posted by gottabkd on Friday, November 11, 2011

Remembrance Day is….

Remembrance Day

Alway's remember

A day to think about all those individuals who have fought for our freedoms, especially here in the western world…

Freedoms that most people in other countries have yet to enjoy….

I often wonder what the children of today will remember about those individuals who continue to fight for our freedoms.

All I want to say is:

Let’s not forget… ever….what they have done for us….

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
to you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
(John McCrae)

I also want to say:

Poppy Canadian

Proud of the men and women that gave me this.

If you love your life…. thank a Veteran…. ~just saying

Till Next Time…..

Treat’s McFadden and the Ottawa Getaway Contest.

Posted by gottabkd on Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Yes, yes I do know it has been a while, but you all know life is sometimes like that… easy come, easy go.

But I found a really cute fun (and possibly time consuming) contest that takes you to Ottawa.
Most of my savvy readers know that Ottawa is the capital city of our vast country of Canada and it has a whole lot to offer. Ranked 2nd cleanest city in Canada and 3rd cleanest in the world, Ottawa is one heck of a city.

Let’s not even get touristy here, but if you win this contest, you will surely know what I mean.

Tourism Ottawa and Treat’s McFadden dot com have created this contest that is simple to do. Simply join the site, look for clues, answer question(s) and repeat every week.
Not too tough and gives you a bit of a challenge.
Obviously the more you enter by answering questions, the better chances you have of winning.

So without further ado, here are the deets:

What: There be will one grand prize awarded, consisting of a trip for 2 to the Ottawa region.
The trip includes: Choice of economy airfare for two OR economy VIA Rail travel for two from any location in Canada to Ottawa.
Two (2) nights accommodation at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Laurier.
One (1) iPad 2 (Wi-fi 16GB, black or white) with SmartCover (Polyurethane)
A $1000 giftcard (Cadillac Fairview shopcard) for purchases at Ottawa’s Rideau Centre (also accepted at Cadillac Fairview malls across Canada).
100$ in promotional gaming credits from the Casino Lac Leamy
Admission for two to The National Gallery of Canada and the Van Gogh: Up Close Exhibition (or equivalent special exhibition, date dependent)

The approximate retail value of the package is $3,000.

When: September 27th, 2011 to November 30, 2011 (5pm closing date)

Who: Canadians only. Must be 18 years or older. All provinces.

Sponsor(s): Ottawa Tourism, host is Treat’s McFadden, with prizes from Cadillac Fairview, Fairmont Chateau Laurier, Via Rail, Apple Canada Casino Lac Leamy and The National Gallery of Canada

Editor’s Notes: I joined this contest. It seems there are videos/questions/hints that help you along the way. When entering your answers, they must be specific i.e. Peace Tower NOT the Tower of Peace, so be careful when answering. If you get it wrong, click the link for the correct answer (you will see what I mean) Enter your answer at the bottom of each video…repeat over the time of the contest.

Whew…. have fun :)

The rules and regulations can be found here please read them!

Till Next Time…..
