Dear Saskatoon, It has been six months since Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. When the strongest storm that ever hit landfall thousands were killed, many left homeless, hungry and no water to drink. Amongst the devastation it affected many Filipinos around the world including the Filipinos of Saskatoon. Our community asked for a helping hand and Saskatoon gave generously. You donated clothing, tools, food and water. In addition you provided financial support for relief efforts. As the survivors continue to rebuild, with your help the Filipino Canadian Association of Saskatoon raised $34,223.00. With the overwhelming support we would like to say thank you for helping save lives and rebuild what has been lost by Typhoon Haiyan. The Filipino Canadian Association of Saskatoon would also like to extend an expression of gratitude to the Federal Government of Canada and Provincial Government of Saskatchewan for their support on relief efforts. To give back to the Saskatoon community, the Filipino Canadian Association of Saskatoon took part in a community blood drive on February 20, 2014 and we also extend an invitation to all of you to partake in our:

ndrea Menard has reached deep into her soul again to produce a CD filled with inspirational, uplifting and enlightened music. Menard, who has often called Saskatoon her home and is now based out of Vancouver, collaborated with Robert Walsh, her producer and longtime friend, to create Lift, a collection of 12 songs. She will perform most of them in concert at a launch at the Broadway Theatre on May 11 at 7 p.m. “Quite honestly, I was going through a period where I wanted to hear some inspirational music and I just couldn’t find any,” said Menard, on the telephone from Hamilton. “Robert told me that if I couldn’t find People any, produce some myself. He can bring out the best in me. Robert and I share grandmothers on one side of my family. I came up with a concept and he made it all work because we trust each other.” Among the dozen songs are Let’s Sing a New Song, Faith & Patience, Shombhala and Answer the Call. All are among the happiest of what Menard calls “a satisfying, sensitive collection drawn from different feelings and perspectives. It really gave me a chance to share joyful thoughts, create peace, love and joy.” The title song, Lift, is somewhat of a tribute to Gordon Tootoosis, a Saskatchewan actor who died in 2011. Ray Thunderchild, formerly of Saskatchewan and now of Vancouver, delivers some Cree language into the song. “I was able to work with Gordon on the TV series Moccasin Flats. He was so real, down-to-earth, humble and sharing of his tremendous acting craft. It was tough to let him go,” said Menard. “Lift was like getting a message from someone on the other side, a message for me to sing, and I think he gave me that for a reason.” Just as Menard is the ultimate Prairie woman, there was a touch of three provinces in the recording process. The basic tracks were created at Unity Grain Productions in Roseisle, a small Manitoba town. The lead vocals were recorded in Walsh’s studio in Edmonton. The backup singers were Stephen Maguire, Carrie Catherine, Dawn Wasacase and Roy Sydiaha, who did their work in Brent Blazeiko’s studio in Saskatoon. There were other lessons to be learned from her fourth album, a follow-up to The Velvet Devil (2002), Simple Steps (2005) and Sparkle (2009). “It was a different journey because we didn’t get any funding. I had to run an Indiegogo campaign. And, thankfully, my friends came up with $12,000 to produce and release the album. It also started me on a campaign in which I call myself a music messenger,” she said. “Like other spiritual seekers who express themselves through music, my particular style of music-making has fallen through the cracks of the music industry. I’ve been unable to come up with the right term or genre to describe my music and worldview that satisfies the present music industry. “I am the full medicine wheel of who I am and it is my responsibility to fly my true

colours – not just for myself, but for others who are embracing their complete selves as well. I am a music messenger and, when it comes down to it, we music messengers are more spiritual initiates than commercial performers.” Her definitions of a music messenger include singers who use words and voice to communicate the message of hope and joy, aspire to raise the consciousness of humankind, learn to translate mystical journeys into song for the benefit of others, and sing of a personal relationship with a divine creator. “It’s like a self-help movement: creating the same effect as self-help books and using music to soothe our weary hearts and bounce us back into joy.” Menard is also on another adventure of discovery. She performed a show — I Am Andrea Menard — with the Regina Sym-

phony Orchestra last week. She considered it a collection of her best works, and featured Walsh as a guest performer and Charles T. Cozens as guest conductor. The success in Menard’s early career was attached to The Velvet Devil, a play that toured nationally, was converted into a CBC drama, and always reaped the benefits from the recording. She played a Prairie Metis woman who was making her concert debut in Toronto. “We took Velvet Devil a long way, but she can only go so far. The symphony performance was really about escaping from the Velvet Devil and introducing the real me. I’d really like to have the Saskatoon Symphony consider the program in the future.” There are Saskatchewan projects that stand tall. One was writing and performing the song

Make it a Sunday Tradition

The Return of the Bell of Batoche, which she did at Batoche Days in July 2013. “Billy Joe Delaronde, the keeper of the bell, didn’t hear the song until it was performed that day. I wanted to be respectful of a great Metis tradition,” said Menard. Saskatchewan Kinsmen Telemiracle is near and dear to her heart; she’s been a headliner each March for six years. “I love everything about it — the recipients of the gifts, the people who donate, the volunteers for the show, the cast members who have big hearts and really want to be there. Yes, it is exhausting, but it is important to be there.” And while singing is one focus, acting is still a consideration. Menard’s Blackstone television drama has just entered a fourth season, and she’s just been nominated for an acting award in British Columbia.

Baseball tournament held in pitcher’s honour

Remembering

Dylan

Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express Dylan Nahorniak was in demand. Division 1 colleges from throughout the United States were calling the Nahorniak home to see if Dylan was interested in their baseball programs. Many calls went unreturned. Dylan Nahorniak, 22, was killed in a September 2010 car accident. It had been such a good year for him. The left-hander had pitched at a college in Palm Desert, Calif. When he returned, he joined his friends on the Saskatoon Stallions. He got married that summer. He and Rochelle already had a baby girl — Brooklyn. Life was good and the future bright. Nahorniak had battled a long bumpy road to become a college pitcher. He wasn’t always given a chance in his youth. But then the little boy that wasn’t always given the ball started to grow. He grew and grew until he was six-foot-four. He made his way to British Columbia, Idaho and Oklahoma and then to California to pursue baseball. “We still have phone messages on our phone from colleges all over the States asking him to phone them,” Dylan’s mother, Colleen Hattie-Nahorniak, said last week. “He did everything himself. He went to B.C., to Idaho. He was a walk on and made the team there. Then he went to Oklahoma and from there to Palm Desert in California.” In 2010, at the College of the Desert in the California Community College Athletic Association, Dylan had gone 3-1, with a 3.97 ERA. And the phone kept ringing. Nahorniak was a late developer as a pitcher. “He got some hard knocks, but that just made him tougher skinned for later on in life,” Colleen said. “It made him more determined. It wasn’t all bad. At the time you think it’s horrible, but in the whole scheme of things it made him more determined to succeed. He did very well for himself.” Tattooed on his muscular arms were the words “When Desire Becomes Obsession.” They represented his passion for the game and his motivation to succeed.

Dylan Nahorniak and his daughter, Brooklyn (Photo Supplied) Nahorniak didn’t plan on going back to California or anywhere else in the United States for the 2010-2011 college year. He wanted to devote his time to his new family. He was also moving into the family business — Al Hattie Insurance. “He did receive a lot of opportunities when he was (in California), but since he was coming back here to get married and he had a little one, he didn’t pursue any of those. It didn’t mean in the future he wasn’t thinking of it. The way his life was going, it didn’t fit in at the moment.” He had stints at home with the Saskatoon Yellow Jackets, but his heart was with the Stallions. “He could hardly wait to get back,” Colleen said. “He would get off the plane in the afternoon and he would play that night. He was so excited; these are all the guys he grew up with.” For four years those guys he grew up with have held a memorial tournament in Dylan’s name. This year’s 10-team event will be held May 9-10 at Cairns Field. “They’ve raised a lot of money for

Brooklyn’s trust fund, breast cancer last year and prostate cancer this year. We did a scholarship last year to a young guy from Saskatoon who is playing ball in the States.” Colleen said it is sad that Brooklyn will never know her father and what a special person he was. “She has things she says that are sad. She would love to see him. She doesn’t understand why she doesn’t have a dad. Nothing is going to bring Dylan back so we have to go on with what we have and try and get through each day.” Dylan’s teammates have helped the Nahorniak family cope with their loss. “They don’t realize it but they are probably our biggest support group. I tell them every year at their windup how much I appreciate everything they do. It is one of the things that got us through this whole thing, to tell you the truth. “There is no easy way to get through this. But this tournament seems to help and it’s nice to be able to raise money and do things for other people.”

She said seeing Dylan’s teammates hosting the casino night at the end of the tournament is something to behold. “They go home after the games, shower and put on their white shirts and their bow ties, and they are the dealers. Their spirit is just amazing. It is an honour that the boys do this every year.” Tournament play begins on the evening of May 9. Opening ceremonies will be held on May 10 at noon. There will be a number of prizes given away, a beer garden and a concession. Colleen is grateful for the generous donations from businesses that make the tournament possible. “They make the tournament so much fun and without them we probably couldn’t do it. We have door prizes and we have a casino night. There are different ways of doing the door prizes that are kind of fun.” No admission is charged.

Drones Obama opens air space for Saskatoon company

Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express decision made by United States President Barack Obama last year has had a direct impact on a Saskatoon business today. Draganfly Innovations has been operating in Saskatoon since 1998, when it launched with a focus on designing and manufacturing remote control toys. Zenon Dragan’s hobby was remote control aircraft, but he wanted to contribute more. He wanted to build something more useful. In 2002, Draganfly launched an industrial line of Unmanned Aviation System (UAS) product and, in 2008, the Draganfly X6 drone prototype put them on the map with law enforcement agencies all over the world. Defining the pinnacle of cultural fame, last year the legendary animated hit The Simpsons featured the Draganfly X6 in one of its famous opening sequences, depicting the Saskatoon-made drone shooting down Homer’s Spider-Pig with a laser beam. In December 2013, the American Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) announced that President Obama had selected six test sites across the United States to perform drone (or Unmanned Aviation System) research. The goal is to do further research in each of the test site’s associated commercial industries, while simultaneously allowing the FAA to study the idea of allowing non-military drones to share U.S. airspace with airplanes and other manned aircraft. This decision means that Saskatoon’s Draganfly Innovations is about to get busier than it already is. Draganfly, which designs and manufactures the remote-controlled helicopter drones for law enforcement,

commercial purposes and even hobbyists, will be partnering with North Dakota State University (NSDU) to monitor agricultural issues pertaining to crop production and livestock. Canadian regulations governing the flight of commercial drones are relatively advanced compared to the United States. However, the proposed test sites mean that the U.S. market might be opening up to Draganfly soon, with the FAA on the record stating that as many as 7,500 commercial drones could be flying across the U.S. in as few as five years. “The biggest factor impacting the use of commercial drones in the U.S. is the fact their regulations currently do not allow for private commercial use of UAS,” said Kevin Lauscher, industrial sales manager at Draganfly Innovations. “For American farmers to use drones to benefit themselves is next to impossible right now.” The NSDU project, which is the first of the six test sites to be operational, will be using the Draganflyer X4-ES for a variety of studies exploring how drones could be a huge help to farmers and ranchers in their everyday operations. The State of North Dakota was an early adopter of drone technology, with a long-time partnership with Saskatoon’s Draganfly Innovations, particularly in respect to regional law enforcement. John Nowatzki, agricultural systems specialist at NSDU, told the online publication AgWeek that Draganfly drones will be flying once a week during this year’s growing season, developing data processing tools to convert images to data for farmers. For crops, the drones will capture things like crop emergence, stand count, soil surface salinity, crop fertility weeds and dis-

ease. Drones will also be used to determine livestock movements and how those relate to disease and breeding activity. While Saskatchewan farmers are further ahead of the drone game than their neighbours across the border, Lauscher says the technology still has a long way to go here at home. “It’s just starting to happen; they’re not as popular right now as they will be,” he explained. “Farmers are still using imagery from full-sized aircrafts or satellites, but unmanned aircraft systems could be much more cost effective for them. Satellite data is slower and spread out over a longer period of time, maybe only reporting back three or four times during the growing season.

providing the agency with enough information to justify their usage. “It’s about public safety, safety in the skies and for the people below,” said Lauscher, a retired Saskatoon police officer. “However, Canada is more progressive, absolutely. Unmanned aviation systems took American regulatory bodies by surprise, especially by miniaturizing everything, including the cameras, and then making the technology readily available. The radio control aspect has been around forever. “Agriculture shows huge potential for using unmanned aviation systems, but so does industrial inspection services, site prep, reclamation projects, insurance, inspection and, of course, emergency services,” Lauscher said. “They can make all this work a lot safer for people.” Draganfly UAS devices can range in price from $4,000 to $30,000, depending on the options chosen by the buyer. The North Dakota State University agriculture project was scheduled to kick off May 5.

o you want to learn more about David Thauberger, his work and his inspiration? Here are some opportunities: On Tuesday, May 6, at 7:30 p.m., a free public screening of the film The Vernacular Man will be held at the Broadway Theatre. According to the Mendel Art Gallery, the film “presents a rare, candid portrait of David Thauberger at work in his studio. The film also travels across Saskatchewan with the artist as he revisits the fading rural architecture that inspired some of his most iconic images.” A question-and-answer session with the artist and the director will take place following the screening. The documentary can also be watched on the lower level of the Mendel Art Gallery, in a viewing area beneath the stairs. The Mendel Art Gallery is piloting an App for the Road Trips exhibition using Apple’s iBeacon technology. As viewers navigate the exhibition space, they can learn more about Thauberger’s work, vote for their favourite pieces and offer their comments. The exhibition also has an online component, which can be viewed at www.thauberger-roadtrips.ca.

Mixing and Matching T

Getting the most out of each piece

here are several ways to justify pricy shopping splurges. I’m getting a great deal. I need a pair of studded six-inch stilettos. That’s what credit cards are for. I’m having a bad day. We’ve heard the excuses and have occasionally used a shopping excuse or two. But a savvy shopper knows that it’s not the number of pieces in your wardFashion robe, it’s the number of ways you can wear your pieces. The smartest and most stylish shopper knows that shopping happens not only in the store, but also in your own closet. Very simply, you shouldn’t buy anything that doesn’t go with at least one or two items already in your closet. Ideally, a

new piece of clothing should go with more than two items in your wardrobe in order to get the most value from your purchase. Mixing and matching new pieces with ones you already own extends the life of existing pieces by creating new outfits. Though it may be impossible to expect of every item in your wardrobe, some pieces should take you from work through to play as well. Editor Look for dresses that are work appropriate, but can also be repurposed for a lunch with your girlfriends, a wedding or a special event. Blazers with a unique factor (like the one Gillian is showing with a peplum detail and contrasting cuff) easily take you from work to play. Pair your jacket with a knee-length dress or skirt

Erin Gray

All clothing modelled by SHE model Gillian Harrington is available at Argyle Boutique in University Heights (112-1820 McOrmond Dr.). Gillian’s hairstyle was created by Lauren Brewster at Lavish Blowout Bar (608 Duchess St.) and her makeup was designed by Jerilyn Mongeau at Le Lash Lash & Makeup Boutique (245 Third Ave. South).

for work. Or pair it with patterned, coloured or white denim for polished weekend wear. A sleeveless top (like the one Gillian is showing with fun floral shorts) can be great for play, but can be re-invented with separates for a work-appropriate look. A structured bag completes a professional look, but is perfect for any occasion. If mixing and matching is a skill you’re still working on mastering, picking items from a single collection

by one designer can often take the challenge out of dressing with separates. For example, each of the pieces Gillian is showing is from Annie 50’s spring/summer 2014 collection (with the exception of her white denim, which is by Point Zero). Of course it’s always easiest to mix and match solid neutral colours, but don’t forget to add colour in either solids or patterns to add personal style. No excuses.

There’s only one way Sterling could get back into an NBA arena. Think the Green Men; 3. Sterling’s age gap dating rule: half your IQ plus 7.” l From Janice Hough: “Washington Redskins fans are wondering if there’s any way they could get V. Stiviano (and her recorder) to start hooking up with Daniel Snyder.” l About 200 years ago an inventor gave the world what would become known as the bicycle. The next day a man bearing a striking resemblance to Coun. Charlie Clark demanded an exclusive trail be made on which he would ride his new contraption. And so it began. l TC Chong, on Buffalo Bills cheerleaders suing the team for time working without pay and demeaning auditions such as

“jiggle tests:” ‘Been there, done that,’ said retired Chicago Bear William (Refrigerator) Perry.” l Bill Littlejohn, on Donald Sterling, who bought the Clippers for $12 million in 1981, potentially selling the team for $1 billion: “That’s a $988-million profit. Is this a great country or what?” l What does it say when people with only handfuls of followers have “verified” Twitter accounts? l You know the size-of-his-feet thing? Turns out thumbs are more telling. l From Hough: “After his second crackcocaine video, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford now says he will take a leave of absence to enter rehab.

Little League team in Oklahoma is auctioning off an assault rifle. Too bad the Sharks didn’t do that; San Jose fans deserve something that goes beyond one round. l The NBA is rumoured to have made a deal with the CFL to really punish Donald Sterling. On top of having to sell the Clippers, Sterling has to buy the Blue Bombers. l How about Calgary’s weather? Surprisingly hot on Thursday, icy cold on Friday. Meteorologists call this pattern “advection;” NHL fans call it Marc Andre Fleury. l A French fashionista claims Pippa Middleton wore fake buttocks to the Royal Wedding. This is a story I wouldn’t mind getting to the bottom of. l According to a CBC report, a Colorado college dropout is now a mathematical genius after recovering from repeated blows to his head. “See?” said Buck Pierce. l Oprah Winfrey is reportedly interested in buying the LA Clippers. So now it’s really become a soap Oprah. l A Reds fan snagged a line drive barehanded while cradling an infant in his other arm. He got a 20-second ovation from the crowd and a $20-million trial offer from the Yankees. l A 35-year-old female court judge in Bosnia was reportedly fired for lying naked on top of her office desk. My first thought? Beats the heck out of my Peter Puck paperweight. l People aren’t surprised Lindsay Lohan named 36 men she has slept with. They’re surprised she remembered. l Phil Kessel sparked outrage for tweeting: “Night fishing with friends doesn’t get much better.” Relax people. It’s the playoffs and he’s a Leaf.

There are times when the other 56 per cent of us wish we hadn’t. l From Chong: “I guess there is no truth to the rumour that Donald Sterling is trying to purchase the Harlem Globetrotters.” l Hough, on the Lakers being interested in hiring John Calipari as coach: “Why would Calipari be interested in coaching prima donnas he can’t get rid of after a year?” l Men take twice as many selfies as women. Somehow I don’t think we are talking faces here. l You can’t make this up: An Ottawa man named Donald Popadick was charged with indecent exposure last week.

Nosh Eatery & Tap Restaurant focuses on healthy living

Shannon Boklaschuk Saskatoon Express unique local restaurant is bringing new meaning to the phrase “eat your veggies.” Nosh Eatery & Tap, located on Broadway Avenue, is serving up a variety of dishes that cater to vegetarians and vegans. “It’s more of a healthy living type of focus,” said chef Justin O’Reilly, who co-owns the new restaurant with general manager Tania Friesen. “A vegetarian diet is usually the healthiest way to live,” he added. Diners can find vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and raw items on the Nosh menu, which includes ingredients such as jicama (a turniplike root vegetable), hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds), ceci (chickpeas), halloumi (a brined white cheese), quinoa, fennel, zucchini, carrots, beets and squash. Entrees include the mushroom steak, which features grilled Portobello mushrooms served with Brussels sprouts and baby potatoes and finished with a rosemary red wine sauce, as well as a “mock” quinoa and spinach risotto, a halloumi dish and zucchini tagliatelle. Nosh also wants to build up its cocktail crowd, and it is serving up beverages made with fresh juice. “There’s enough to appeal to everyone,” O’Reilly said of the menu options. For customers who eat fish and red meat, local walleye and trout

dishes are also available, as is a steak sandwich served with wilted spinach and garlic aioli. O’Reilly, who previously worked for five years as the head chef at Prairie Ink Restaurant & Bakery in McNally Robinson Booksellers, said “it’s a smart business move” to offer meals that cater to both carnivores and herbivores alike. “Wives bring their husbands and husbands bring their wives that are meat eaters, that kind of thing,” he said. While O’Reilly isn’t a vegetarian, he has always focused on eating a lot of veggies and he designed his menu around the food that he enjoys. As well, he has access to a oneperson focus group in his vegetarian girlfriend, Hillary, who provides him with feedback on his dishes. “It’s just good food. It’s good flavours. You’re left with that feeling that, ‘Oh, I didn’t eat meat. But I’m full and I feel nourished and I feel kind of revitalized, and I feel ready to go take on the day,’ ” he said. Nosh opened on March 10 in the space formerly occupied by another restaurant, Weczeria Food & Wine. When that restaurant closed, Nosh moved into the building but changed the existing décor. O’Reilly described his eatery’s updated look as “warm, homey and very welcoming.” “The front, we kind of rebranded it ourselves. We did all the construc-

tion ourselves; we did all the renos, basically, ourselves. We put our stamp on it, and we kind of had to take it as far away from the old restaurant as we could, so we can focus on a new beginning,” he said. O’Reilly said the time was right to offer vegetarian and healthy living options in the city. “Saskatoon’s ready for it. Saskatoon needs it, so that’s the way it needs to go. Everyone’s focusing on a healthy lifestyle nowadays, and I think it needs to be done.” O’Reilly plans to buy produce from local farmers and to change his menu about two to three times per year, he said. “You’ve got to keep it fresh for everyone. People can come back 14, 15 times and they may or may not have tried everything on the menu. I only have about 25 menu items on there.” People have been responding positively to Nosh, he added. “The Broadway community has been excellent to us. They welcomed us with open arms. It’s been top-notch. We’ve been having a lot of repeat clientele so far.” Nosh Eatery & Tap is located at 820 Broadway Ave. It is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday.

By Arthur Frommer Q: We are going to Walt Disney World with our threeyear-old. Any advice? A: Don’t. Your child is much too young to enjoy a Disney park, and may even be frightened by the costumed characters you will encounter. Q: I need to obtain 500 euros for my upcoming trip to Europe. Where can I get them? A: At large branches of major banks. But why would you carry $500 worth of euros on your person, thus presenting a target for pickpockets and thieves? Smart tourists carry only that small amount of currency they will need for daily use, and pick up additional sums of cash as the trip proceeds at ATMs. They use their credit cards for large purchases. Q: My son will be studying abroad, and plans to use hostels as his overnight lodgings. Are they reliable? A: They are more reliable

his attractive two-storey home, with a glassfenced covered deck that wraps around part of the front and side, would be ideal for a growing family, since it includes three bedrooms on the main living floor, plus room for a fourth on the ground floor. The covered entry leads into a foyer with the den, with a cupboard to store the hot-water tank and furnace as well as built-in shelves to the right. On the left is the U-shaped staircase to the main floor, with storage tucked beneath the stairs. Still in the foyer, a coat closet is located opposite to a doorway to the double garage. Upstairs, the great room boasts a vaulted ceiling, plus French doors on to the covered deck and a gas fireplace flanked by windows. The open space in the stairwell is safely surrounded by railings. In the kitchen and dining area, the ceilings rise to nine feet. These rooms share sliding doors to a patio

overlooking the back garden, making outdoor dining an easy choice during the warmer months. The kitchen’s Ushaped counter configuration will save many steps for the cook, and a large pantry will provide extra storage. A three-seat eating bar provides an ideal spot for quick meals and snacks. The master suite overlooks the front garden and includes a spacious walk-in closet and a four-piece ensuite with a soaker tub and a glassed-in shower stall. A bookcase just inside the doorway will provide storage space for bedtime reading. The secondary bedrooms, both looking out to the back garden, share a three-piece bath. The linen cupboard and laundry room are located near the bedrooms, along with a small storage space.

On the ground floor, a fourth bedroom has been planned for future family growth, in addition to a secondary suite. Exterior finishes include horizontal siding, vertical boardand-batten and decorative woodwork in the gables, and stone-based pilasters flanking the entrance. This home measures 48 feet wide and 9 feet deep, for a total of 1,421 square feet. All ceilings rise to nine feet, except where otherwise indicated.

Tell her you have been dating her husband

Dear Lianne, I have been dating someone for a while and just received an email from his wife. She wants to know if I am seeing her husband. I didn’t know he was married. I have cut ties with him, but am unsure if I should respond to her or chalk this up to another Internet dating disaster. — Tammy Dear Tammy, People have differing opinions on this one. I would answer her questions Relationships and CC the response to him. I would SS50571.E05 Jamesinclude the Internet dating site that you

met him on. Technology has unleashed the monster in many people. His wife deserves to know that she is potentially in danger because of his infidelity. It sure sounds like you could benefit from my extensive screening process and meet someone who is honest and sincere. Give me a call. Dear Lianne, Please tell me what to expect when I join your service. How long will it be before I am matched? How often will I get matches? — Lee Dear Lee, When you work with a good match-

maker, you should not expect to be matched in a hurry or often. A matchmaker is just that. We introduce people when we see there might be long-term potential. At Camelot we have a system in place where our clients are required to call into a 24hour number every three weeks until they are happily matched. This insures that our clients are having regular searches done for them. And it allows my intuition to work. People tend to get frustrated thinking that matchmaking is instant. At times it is. But more often than not, it is a process that is

ultimately worth the wait. We do live in a world full of instant gratification. The search for love can be trying, but the payoff incredible. Be patient and always pleasant when you are working with someone whose objective is to represent you and help you find a special person. (I will be in Saskatoon interviewing new clients from May 20-23. Call now to book your appointment to start the search for love: 1-204-888-1529. Questions for this column can be submitted to camelotintroductions@ mymts.net.)
