Help Us Find Jesse Galganov

If you are a Montrealer like me, you for certain know that Jesse Galganov’s family has been searching for him since he went missing in Peru on September 28th.

This is a women’s lifestyle blog, but in light of the fact that I have readers from around the world, it is only right that I do my part in sharing this, in hopes that someone reading has information on Jesse’s whereabouts. This is also very close to my heart as my first cousins are cousins with Jesse. So I have respected my family’s wishes and am sharing this today.

“On September 28, the 22-year-old texted his mother saying he might be unable to communicate for a few days, as he planned to hike the 31-mile Santa Cruz trail through the Cordillera Blanca Mountains. He assured his mother, Alisa Clamen, he’d be reachable after October 2.

The Accidental Rebrand

I am excited to reveal today… the new, improved and rebranded WomenOnTheFence.com, Real Inspiration for the Modern Woman.

You see, we weren’t planning or rebranding or facelifting any time soon. But our site went down two weeks ago, and when the backup reinstalled was totally corrupt, we had no choice but to start from scratch.

I panicked.

It was touch and go for five long days. Did we actually lose eight years of blog posts, comments, pages, blood, sweat and tears?

Beyond Politics: Trump and Inauguration Day

So, this is not a political blog. I’m pretty sure you know that by now.

But, I do have something I really want to say, so here goes…

For some, today is a day to rejoice and celebrate. Change is upon us, and Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States of America for the next four to possibly eight years. For others, this is a very sad and scary day.

Happy Holidays WomenOnTheFencers!

Do you hear that sound?

It’s the sound of the home stretch. The approach of the end of another year. Christmas, Hanukkah, Nat King Cole and reindeers, BOXING DAY, New Year’s Eve! It’s also the time where I close up the blogging shop for 2 weeks to spend time with my family. As you know, it’s my gift I give myself every July and December. I rest the mind, and come back rested and rejuvenated with fresh content in January.

Sorry For The Inconvenience, Friends

Hello, all.

Sorry for the recent inconvenience of our site being down – we were in the process of switching hosts for a more optimal and enjoyable user experience. We are all switched over now. Yay.

In addition, our blog posts via email haven’t been working for some time now, as you might have noticed. This was one of the reasons for the switch over, so if you were already a subscriber, you will continue enjoying our blogs again right to your inbox. All good.

Hello, I’m Back!

Hello. I am back!

July has come and gone. Back into the ever-growing grinding responsibilities of August.

How has your summer been?

I enjoyed the month of July. I worked hard, I played a little harder.

A few July milestones:

I saw HADRY make its debut on The View. That was beyond thrilling.

July Blogging Slowdown

Girls, I am taking my annual 4-week July blogging break. I do this every year for my mental wellbeing, and for the quality of this blog. It is my gift to myself. It is not easy to continuously keep things fresh, relevant and interesting, so every July, I rest my blogging brain to come back recharged, refreshed, and ready to give you more.

Over the next four weeks, I will be working, relaxing and traveling. My kids leave today for camp, and I want to take in the last moments before they go.

5 Great Summer Reads!

On this week’s Global TV segment, I shared five great summer reads. In the fall, I had included something for every woman: fiction, non-fiction, laugh-out-loud funny, witty, heartwarming, and a heart-pounding thriller. For the summer though, I kept it a little lighter. We don’t have to be serious ALL THE TIME. 😉 Sometimes it’s okay for Calgon to take us away.

Here is the segment on five great beach reads. As you can see, I wouldn’t do well in a book club. It takes me 9 months to read one book.
