Thank you for visiting Snowbird of Paradise. I am delighted that you have found my site. Please explore the various posts and read as many as take your fancy.

Snowbirds (aka Dark-eyed Juncos) leave Canada in the winter and return in the spring, and people who do the same are also called snowbirds. Years ago, I planted a Bird of Paradise shrub in a pot and put it out on my patio in California, I have combined the two “birds” in the title of this blog. I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts about the things that come my way.

When I am in Edmonton I acknowledge that I am located on Treaty 6 territory, and I respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada. When I am in San Jose, I know and respect that I am on the aboriginal homeland of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe.

If you think you spot some inconsistencies between English Canadian spellings and American spellings, you are probably right. I should decide on one or the other but, like myself, my spellings tend to travel back and forth.

I will be happy to hear from you and to respond in the comments sections. If you would like to send me an email, please use the form provided here.

    1. Hi Jim, Yes, yours is the first comment on the Welcome page! I think you’ll get a chuckle out of the Dating page, too. I’m in San Jose, and it has been raining.
