Get organized for the holidays with Microsoft Office 2016

When I was younger, during the holidays I remember my dad buying a typewriter and making me learn the keys and learn to type. I am so glad I learned this skill because whenever someone in my family, a friend, or a relative wanted a letter or a resume to be typed, I was always the person everyone came to. When we bought our first family desktop, I was already familiar with the keyboard and I was so glad to be introduced to Microsoft Word. Growing up my spare time on weekends were spent typing essays, creating simple spreadsheets and of course PowerPoint slides. For me, Microsoft Office started it all.

Win the Wildlife of the World book

My family and I enjoy learning about wildlife, and we do this as a leisure activity during our eco-tourism to wildlife parks in Canada, and in different countries such as going to see elephants and turtles. We find watching documentaries and learning about wildlife from books such as this Wildlife of the World book is an extraordinary and a humbling experience for us. The unique habitats of the world that God has created are incredible and amazing, as every species has features that are specific to them, which they need for their survival.

Our Holiday Baking Traditions and Baking Cupcakes

I love baking! The love for baking and cooking is embedded in me probably because of helping out as a young child in the kitchen when my grandma, aunts, cousins and mom get busy making a variety of dishes. We used to get together and make lots of goodies to give family, friends and neighbours during special occasions and festivals. I love continuing this tradition with my family and get everyone in the mood to bake and share.

Benefits of Being An Avioner This Holiday

During the holidays, shopping malls can get very hectic, crowded and busy. However, having an Avion RBC card changes the feeling of chaos and makes us feel like "royalty" instead. With the RBC Visa Avion card, we can get our car parked by valet, relax in the VIP lounge away from the crowd and enjoy shortbread cookies and warm beverages, while our gifts get wrapped for free.
