On a work note, it was wonderful sharing my keynotes with many meaningful groups recently including:
Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre
Ontario Federation of Healthcare Workers LiUNA Local 1110


It was great kicking off a new class of students at Second City. They are a terrific group of funny people.
In case you feel like you are missing out on the ha ha ha, I have recently launched an E-workbook entitled, ‘Avoid Audience Boredom – Add the Funny to Your Talks’.
As I mention in my keynote, ‘Relieving Stress with Humour’, animals are an amazing way to relieve stress.
The Dogstarz crew had to jump into action to help a cat ( yes, cats are people too) that we nicknamed Sailor Kitty.
Sailor Kitty was found hanging out at the St. James Sailing Club. As classes wrapped up and temperatures started to drop, it was all hands on deck to find a home for Sailor Kitty (which we did). Thanks to Sylvia, Suzi Marks and Boardwalk Animal Hospital for making the rescue possible. Thanks, as well, to Michael Hahn( my web guru), for helping us spread the word!
More importantly, thank you to his new owners for opening their home to an animal that really needed them. Gee, do you think Sailor Kitty is happy??
