Clean and Simple

Finally got around to cleaning up the main site - it's very basic now, a minimum of code.  I took the CSS out.  The site should display nicely on mobile devices.  It's not that I can't design fancier sites, it's that I don't want this one to be fancy.  I think it's best if people can just access it quickly and get the information they want quickly.

Update Feb. 8/12:  It's all one page now too!  Now you can't say, "Oh, I didn't see that page" LOL!

2012 Services and Rates On Site

Hello, folks!

I have decided on the services and rates that will be on offer this year.  They are on the main site at http://www.comoxvalleymassage.com/

When you call, make sure you have visited the rates page first.  Things have changed, and we'll have to go over your expectations and figure out your rate before you come in.

See you soon,

January Special


January's special is as follows:

Book your massage at the base rate, and you can add an extra free!

This is to familiarize my clients with the Extras I offer, and allow them to try those that might interest them.

If you choose more than one extra, the free one will be the MOST expensive one, not the least expensive.

See my services and rates page for more information.

Nadine Won the Bet


Why am I awake at 4 a.m.?  Because the first week of school didn't work out very well.

It was the course content.  Again.  I ragedropped all of my classes yesterday.  The course descriptions did not match the actual content.  As it turned out, what seemed to be solid stuff ended up a) exploring "New Age" concepts; b) try to reconcile rational with religious thought in a sort of horrifying pseudo-intellectual mashup; or c) allowing people with no art training to create works of art (after looking at works of art that are of questionable value and not questioning their value).  I just couldn't take it.

Enough hippie crap!  Whatever happened to "attend the lectures, study the book, learn the book, write a paper, write the exam"?  I want to be proud of my degree.  Finger-painting and Eastern mysticism are NOT going to play any part in my degree program.  I have been up all night, looking for new courses that will advance my degree without being ridiculous, and have finally found some good ones.  This will involve commuting to Nanaimo for classes, but I would have had to start doing that next year anyway.

Nadine, who bet me $1000 that books would be bouncing off the walls by the end of the year, won that bet.  She was absolutely right...I finally snapped.  The good news is that since I did make it through the first semester, and have now signed up for more courses than I was taking before, she's decided to let me use the money to cover the difference in tuition and cost of new textbooks.  I really think that all she wanted was to prove a point.

So I'm off to Nanaimo to give VIU more money and get more books.  Will be back this afternoon.  Starting next week, I will be in Nanaimo Monday and Wednesday mornings, and in class here on Thursday nights.

Welcome 2012


Finally!  The end of 2011!

This has been one tough year.  We lost Amy Winehouse, Steve Jobs, Joe Frazier, Heavy D, and Christopher Hitchens, to name only a few.  Those were big losses, and the deaths of bin Laden, Khaddafi and Kim Jong Il do not compensate for them.  I have not been smoking, I have been studying, and although I overindulged a little bit food-wise over the holidays (as usual), there should be no lasting repercussions because I really was quite sensible all year.  What a tough year, having to be so sensible.  It's been awful. 

So what's the resolution for 2012?  What's left?

The issue I choose to tackle in the coming year is spending.

Not once in my life have I ever given any serious consideration to how much money I spend.  If money is becoming tight, I assume that it's because I need to earn more, and proceed accordingly.  The possibility that cutting down on spending could be part of the solution never really crossed my mind.

Well, it's crossing it now, because in 2011, I tried very hard to save some money, and wow!  As it turns out, saving money is really difficult if you don't also change the spending habits.  It's not like I spend a lot, but I'm not exactly frugal either, and that's the problem right there.

I have removed the Members Only area from the main site because it was too exclusive.  My apologies to those who were coming in on the Members Only rate - those rates are no longer available.  This year, the rates for everyone will be the same.

As far as hours go, we'll just play it by year.  Just remember that I'm kind of an "afternoon person".  Too early in the morning or too late at night, not happening.

Here's hoping that your holidays were enjoyable, and best wishes for a safe, happy, and prosperous New Year!
