Brighton, the Oscars and a Bar Mitzvah!

I took the train to Brighton and was absolutely surprised and amazed with the city. I stayed at The Lanes Hotel and had a sea front room, with a man standing on the balcony! Problem was, he never moved‎!.

Seafront hotel in Brighton, with a wonderful addition on my balcony. Man in dinner jacket! How lucky am I?

I visited the Pavilion, George the Third’s summer house, where he kept his mistresses. I had never heard of this palace before, but this is one of the best palaces I have seen. I walked into the dining hall and just said WOW! Massive Chinese and Indian influences. The King had never travelled to those places. Apparently, at the end of his life he became too fat to sit in any of the beautiful chairs he had collected from around the world.

The Spectacular Pavilion in Brighton (George III’s summer home)

I was also invited by Clergy to be part of a discussion group at the University of Sussex.

At the University of Sussex in Brighton with my new friend, George!

 Watching the Academy Awards was quite an adventure! I was flying to Toronto morning after Oscars, show started about 1.30 am (UK time), didn’t sleep, watched the red carpet on my laptop. Award show wasn’t on TV, couldn’t stream without the right app, and the car was picking me up at 3.30 am from Cambridge to drive to Heathrow Airport, which takes about 90 minutes. So I called my driver Steve, he came to the rescue with a tablet and the oscars all set up. THANKS STEVE! Also big thanks  to my friend, Meredith, who kept me informed every step of the way!! Movies are an addiction for me.

I was delighted with the Moonlight win, very real and edgy!!

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.
