This week I received the email below from a friend. I thought I would share it with you and I hope you enjoy it!   Please take a look at an article my friend Cheryl's daughter wrote in honour of her Mom for Mother's Day.  She's just finished her undergrad at NYU and she's making a go of it in the "Big Apple".  She's currently working for the Huffington Post, responsible for social media.  Michelle is an amazing young woman and I'm looking forward to reading more about her in the years to come... I'm almost as proud of her as her Mom is!!! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelle-persad/mother-daughter-she-doesnt-look-like-me_b_1424279.html   Thanks Ethel!! xo

Congratulations, Jane!! You can find the article at this link http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/rob-magazine/the-mystery-woman-behind-the-blockbuster-mlse-deal/article2384140/   The next two stories were in  the Globe this past Saturday, April 7.
