Latest from Cambridge!

Well, here I am sitting on bench in the sunshine at Jesus College

Jesus College, all we need is Harry Potter!

waiting for a lecture to start entitled “Britain- Should I Stay or Should I Go?” about the vote in June on if the UK should leave EU or not, the vote is very close!  My sense of the vote is, unless the stay side can be very factual and specific on why they should stay, they could be in trouble!

I spent week in York, busy with programs and traveling to a lovely seaside town called Whitby,

On way to Whitby UK by the sea, with friends!

when you travel outside of Cambridge the prices really go down, sometimes in half!

People here have been very friendly and helpful, I get invited out for coffee and to events etc. The energy in Cambridge is very high and I am attending Plays, Lectures,

Attended a lecture entitled "Obama Reaction" (I thought this poster said it all)

and Conferences (about International Relations) all which are open to public for 5 or 10 pounds, I just love the involvement, the University has a great website for what they call Public Engagement.‎

‎My friends Elizabeth and Richard have a beautiful home close to Cambridge (pictures below),

Spent lovely country weekend just outside of Cambridge with friends Elizabeth and Michael, at their beautiful and serene home which used to be The Village VICARAGE, it even had a Canadian Maple tree on the property.

and the Vicar said a special prayer for the fires in Alberta.

I have always said I would never go to Africa again, well NEVER say NEVER! I have been invited to Goma in the Congo in September, the VISA process is brutal, but I will stay with friends, so it should be safe and I am told that part of Africa is very beautiful!  ‎

I paid a visit to my National Health Insurance Doctor, who for 10 minutes told me what was wrong with NHS, at the end I said, “I would never hired him to do PR”, and he laughed!‎

Justin Trudeau was all over the media, with the pushing incident, but they also put his apology on the front page.

I just realized have been here for month and haven’t even travelled to London yet (it’s 50 minutes away by train). ‎

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

    So glad that you are enjoying your time in England. I hope you enjoyed Whitby, which I have loved over the years, but have not been there for some time now. All is well here, except that Bruce fell in the church going downstairs and has fractured his kneecap, so can’t walk far, can’t drive, and is in quite a lot of pain and discomfort. It will be at least another two weeks before he can remove a leg brace he has to wear all the time. I am trying to look after him and hope that he can soon look after himself, as I am not ready to do everything for him! He is still doing his Compass Rose Board work, but not much more than that! We have been very fortunate up to this point with quite good health, so I really cannot complain. Hope all is well with you, love as always Prue

    Hi Betty, love all the pictures – by the by, if you need a photographer, give me a dingle 🙂 So there you be for a while and it sounds like you have so many of your needs being met there or close by. Who could ask for more? You are the ‘cat’s meow’ indeed and well deserved. Over here we open-ed a center in Surrey which is quite lovely and we have to find another place for Vancouver very soon so Claudia is putting out feelers for that. We had Atam here and it was fantastic and so much fun – still editing all the photos from last Tuesday. All is well and the same to you – be well, stay well, think well. For now, moi
