Blog of the Week : 03/28 - 04/03 2010

The 'Blog of the Week' for the week of March 28th to April 3rd 2010 is "Eastern Health - Discovery Needs Assessment".   This particular blog is dedicated to discussing and developing a health needs assessment in the region and provides a great way for locals to communicate and further take part in the process of doing just that.  With all the news as of late regarding Eastern Health, I figured this blog was a good one to highlight this week.  There is plenty of information on Eastern Health and their challenges and I highly suggest anyone interested in the topic to check it out.  Click the pic to take you there!

Clean Up Time is a Sad Time

I took a peak at all the links in the list tonight and weeded out any dead and inactive ones, and by that I mean in this case a non poster for about 8 months.  As always, if you're blog is listed below and you get back on the go, please let me know.

I didn't mean to do that; that rhyme thing.

I do plan on going back and looking through all the blogs that I've removed since we started so many moons ago... when I find the time.  I'll get there.  In the meantime, below are the ones we wave so long to for now:

Donna O'Rielly Found

In reference to a post from a couple weeks back, some fellow bloggers may be interested to know this.  Updates on the situation can be found on CBC's site but I am happy to report that she is alive and in good health.

Blog of the Week : 03/21 - 03/27 2010

The 'Blog of the Week' for the week of March 21st to March 27th 2010 is 'The Other Side of Sixty'.  This space from 'Wisewebwoman' (who is an Irish born Newfoundlander) features 'random thoughts from an older perspective' and her posts are be focused on just about anything; spirituality, climate change, knitting, movies, books, organic gardening and so on.  Like I said, just about anything.  Her perspective on such things is an important one as it provides insight into our past in relation to now.   Her posts are fun to read and very informative so I highly suggest you check it out.  Go on!

NO BOTW This Week

If you came here looking for the Blog of the Week for this week, I have to apologize, there will be no selection this time around.  It's been a busy day and I've had minimal access to the PC until now.   Please come back next week and see who the selection is.

Also, as a heads up,  I plan on doing some cleanup this week and removing any blogs that have not been active... and add a couple new ones in the process.

Stay tuned...

Blog of the Week : 03/07 - 03/13 2010

The 'Blog of the Week' for the week of March 7th to March 13th 2010 is 'Newfoundland Hockey Talk'; "the definitive fan site for minor and senior hockey in Newfoundland and Labrador."  With the Olympics just ending (and Canada winning Gold!!), the NHL pushing it's way to the playoffs and any other hockey organization perhaps doing the same, I figure this was a great time to select this blog.  The site has been around since 2005 (with the blog being added in 2007) and boasts as being the largest fan site for this topic... and I wouldn't doubt that one bit.  It has a lovely design and many articles for anyone interested in local hockey and beyond.   So, don't waste time reading what I have to say, go check it out for yourself!

Newfoundland Woman Missing From Moncton

Steve at Oh Me Nerves gave me the heads up on this.  If anyone reading this happens to know anything, please contact the appropriate people.  Help find Donna O’Reilly.

On Friday February 26 at 8 pm, Donna O’Reilly, 54, disappeared as she was leaving her job in Highfield Square in Moncton.  She was seen leaving the building but never made it to her car just a few metres from the door. 

Donna, a native of Isle aux Morts, Newfoundland, is five-foot-three, 130 pounds, and has green eyes and shoulder length hair.  According to, her family believes the only possible explanation for her disappearance is abduction.
