I know what you're thinking. "Couldn't you have made it shorter?" Probably.
Here's how it will hopefully be set up really soon.
Just wanted to let you all know where we've gone. Thanks for reading!

Malcolm and Doris took over The Kettle in 2008 and have been steadily improving the overall experience there. The staff are great and the owners certainly take pride in what they're doing. Having extensive experience in hospitality from running a five-star resort doesn't hurt either.
If you're not into deep fried food, you have TONS of dining options at The Kettle. There are so many ways to prepare fish without frying that you'll be certain to have a nutritious and flavourful experience there. Try their Boston Style Fish & Chips - definitely one of my favourites.
The Niagara Guide is a sponsor of the Niagara Romance Expo. This is a bit of a "naughty" step for us as Niagara Romance is being promoted as Niagara's only Expo featuring Sex, Romance, Intimacy and Relationships.
So, what are we doing sponsoring this event?
Well, for one thing, it's run by Power Two You Productions and we sponsor their other events, so there's a bit of history there. Carrie and Donna are two great ladies to work with and we enjoy helping them out.
There's also the fact that waaaaaay long ago, The Niagara Guide attended a romance-style show in Toronto. The price was right and we were promoting Niagara as a romantic getaway. At the time, we registered the domain NiagaraRomance.com which we've held onto for years. The show was a bit of a bust (no pun intended), but we still had the domain. When Carrie and Donna came up with their idea, I thought it would be a good fit for The Niagara Guide again.
So, we'll be there, along with the exotic bodypainters, erotic hypnotists and other TRULY sexy businesses but we'll be promoting our accommodation, dining and winery advertisers as having THE places to go for romance.
Check them out - NiagaraRomance.com. 18+ only can attend, but the website's pretty tame.
There's also some press online about this event and our sponsorship, available here.

What kind of year is 2010 going to be?
I know from my own experience there were things I could'a, should'a, must'a done but for one reason or another, didn't get done. Is 2010 going to be another year of that? For my sake, I intend to act faster to get my business and life positioned the way I want it to be.
Did you make it through 2009 meeting all your goals? Most people sat back and did the same-old, same-old and made it through the year. Is that going to be you, or will you be making changes so you can start living your dreams?
I know which way I'll be going. Thank you for being with me on the journey so far, and I look forward to your continued company.

This new article from The Water Superstore brings together some of the research that's been done linking chlorine to health issues such as cancer, bronchitis and asthma. Click on the link below for the full read.
Having a shower? Definitely read this article. Personally, I picked up a shower chlorine filter. The water definitely smells a lot better now and I feel better knowing I'm not inhaling chlorine.

Attendance was down from the usual, which is interesting to me.
We're in / just coming out of a recession. Business has its challenges. We all need to get / hone our business edge, which often means getting stimulated, motivated and educated - and IdeaShare helps do this and more.
Still, attendance was down.
Are businesspeople in Niagara not interested in being leaders? Are they content to be sheep? The people who attend IdeaShare regularly say they wouldn't miss it. I'm part of that crowd - I learn something new every time and I enjoy sharing what I know.
If you're interested in attending an IdeaShare meeting, they're on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to come.
Today we discussed how leadership pervades every aspect of our lives, from raising children to running corporations. If you're not focusing on leadership, where exactly are you going?
Hope to see you at IdeaShare.
