Tim's Tip of the Day

Pay really close attention to what you say when you are talking to someone about something that is important to you. Their reaction and comments are not nearly as important as what you are actually telling yourself often important things you may not have consciously been aware.

Ensign Notes

Hi TimothyÖI just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy keeping up with the Tisdale news on your web site. I live on Vancouver Island ñ in Cobble Hill to be exact but my parents live in Tisdale so the visual news that you provide is appreciated. They were part of the Senior Centre fund raising event today which Mum described to me and with your description and pictures I almost felt like I had been there. Keep up the good workóit is fun for us. Thanks.
