Feature Artist - Michelle Small

I guess my journey into cake decorating began from a desire to make my friend’s birthdays special by baking them a cake. I couldn’t remember the last time I had received one for my birthday and the memory of such a gift inspired me to reintroduce this custom amongst my friends. At first I was making fairly straight forward cakes and decorating them with fancy writing or candy, but after a while, I started to get more excited by the challenge of more difficult 3D designs.

Aries (March 21 – April 19) Adventure
The search for personal knowledge can be hazardous as nobody can guarantee it, just danger and a long adventure with every possibility of going astray and never reaching the goal.

kevin_answerguy.jpg
Last month was all about the challenges of dealing with big files; especially the limits of drives and computers. There were a lot of big numbers. This month I promise that there will be very few numbers as we continue the discussion around the challenges of moving large files.

I worked in the restaurant business for many years afterward while travelling around Canada looking for a place to call home and have always loved food and cooking.

health_naturally.jpg
Vitamin D is a vitamin that has been getting a lot of press over the past year, particularly since some research was published supporting its ability to prevent H1N1.

The weather has been cool and wet but the fishing has been hot on dry flies. The Elk has been on fire.
