I don’t really have one favourite musician. Even though I can’t “carry a tune in a bucket” as my mom used to say, I love all types of music. Up beat tunes always make me happy and want to dance.
The best gift that I have ever received are my children and my grandchildren. I am very blessed with a wonderful family.
If I could, I would go back in time I would go back to my high school time in the early 1970’s. I enjoyed high school, my friends, sports and my teachers. Time went by so fast during that period that I would like to revisit that period again.
From the start that I have joined the MLP Team, I feel a great sense of caring. The residents’ well-being and happiness are first and foremost at MLP.
Louis Armstrong. I love all Jazz and Classical. Little bit of Country as well.
Life. It has given me the knowledge to help others, and most of all it has given me wonderful children and grand-children.
I would go back to Klondike Days – 1800’s. There wasn’t the hassle and bustle of everything – it was laid back and in order to cope you relied on your neighbours for help and endurance.
It has taught me patience and understanding of not only the residents but also other team members and how to cope with everyone’s needs.
My favorite musician is the Chipmunks, I play them with the grand kids.
The best gift I’ve ever received was a pair of toe socks – why? “Everyone need toe socks, don’t you”
If I could go back in time, the year would be 2010; the year my mother passed, just to hear her voice one more time.
I don’t really have a favourite musician. I like listening to Pop, Country and a little bit of Rock – but not Hard Rock. I like Nickelback, Bryan Adams and Adele.
Have to say this past Christmas – I received a 3D picture of a wolf head. Also having all of my family here is the best gift of all …
It would be when my other was growing up in the 1940’s. When rent was only $27 a month, you could buy a house for $3,000 and bread was only 10 cents a loaf.
My time at MLP has taught me to have more respect for seniors. We are all going to be there one day as well. Listen to what they have to say and appreciate that they have their own opinions … extend towards them a helping hand when needed
My favourite bands are Nickelback and AC/DC. However, I like pretty much all types of music as long as it has a good beat to the tune.
The best gift that I have ever received is my lovely wife, and soon to be born my first child!
I would go back to my childhood. Life was carefree with no worries or responsibilities. Life seemed so very simple then.
Although I am new to MLP Team, I have learned and realized the importance of team work and the great benefits that come with being part of a wonderful group of people – whose aim is to serve the amazing residents who live here.

I love all types of music, anything from rock, hip-hop and country
My grandmother’s wedding rings when I turned 16
I would go back to the times of prohibition because people were more carefree
That life is short. Never take the time you have with people for granted.
I can’t say that I have a favourite musician. I love all kinds of music. Country music would be one of my favourites. Music makes me happy.
My beautiful girls. They stole my heart from day one.
I would go back to the 1800s, life was less complicated. I would love being a stay at home mom, would love being with my family. Family time is always number one to me.
My favorite musician would be my best friend, Bobbi-Jo Vandenburg. She has such a pure soulful country voice that I could listen to for hours.
The best gift I have ever received are my 3 beautiful children. They make me not take life for granted. I cherish each and every single day with them.
I would say that I would choose the 80’s. Mainly because it has the basics of everything we have today. It was a peaceful time in which life wasn’t, no economic crisis all around.
My time at MLP Residence has taught me that whether your young or elderly we all have a purpose here on earth.
Can’t say I could narrow it to only one. I will sing to any type of music … and everything! The shampoo bottles never complain!
My amazing family. I can honestly say they are top knotch and I don’t know where I would be without them and their support.
I would go back to the 1600’s in Barbados. Recently I was on a cruise and visited the oldest church in Barbados. The church was empty and dark. I would love to see it “alive” and full!
I am new to MLP; but was welcomed with smiles from all staff and the residents. It feels like home and I am looking forward to sharing these walls with great people within them!
My favourite musician is Bon Jovi.
The best gift I have ever received was a bouquet of flowers for no reason.
If I were to ever travel back in time, it would be in the 1920’s to get a better understanding of the depression and its effect on life.
I have understood what it really means to be a part of a “team” – one which cares for their residents and their well-being.
As I am aging and becoming more humble and grateful for my presence, I find I am enjoying music that relates to the strength of spirit. I love chanting hymns, opera, foreign languages like Spanish, and more recently the Indian language.
The best gift I have ever received is my partner. He gave me the gift of joy. His spirit is light, while very grounded to the earth. I am of spirit so he is my balance with earth’s connection.
If I could go back in time it would be to the year 1989. My strength of spirit awakened. This was a journey of self, but not selfish. My year of physical accomplishment in body building championships. I overcame insecurities through training, which I recognized were not necessarily my own. My journey has awakened the depth of a strong spirit within me. Today I found joy in helping others with their strength of spirit, their voice within.
Don’t think I can pick one. I love county music, old and new.
I got a walking doll for Christmas years ago. I still remember this as my best Christmas gift, ever. It was what I had asked Santa for.
1976, I would go back to my high school days, a happy and care-free time.
Dire Straits - I still listen to the music I listened to in college.
The best gift I ever received was a mirrored puzzle box. It taught me things are not always as they seem!
Turn of the 19th century when science and industry made great strides forward
I've learned how to listen with a compassionate ear.
Cher is my favourite musician. Her music helps me be strong. She has so much strength.
The best gift I have ever received was seeing the strength from my granddaughter when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Her strength to continue on and move forward was wonderful to see.
If I could go back in time, I would go back to the 70s and 80s. Those were the best years of my life!
I love listening to country music, it's what I grew up listening to. If I had to choose a favourite artist, I'd have to say Cory Asbury - I find his music uplifting and soothes the soul.
The best gift I ever received was traveling to Mexico with my boyfriend's family. It was my first time ever traveling by plane, and I experienced swimming with the dolphins!
If I could go back in time, I would choose 1845. I often feel like an old soul and love the history. I'd love to live in a Victorian home that features stained glass windows, gingerbread trim on the exterior and a large bear claw tub.
My favourite hip-hop artist is Juice Wrld. His music has helped me through tough times, and I associate many of his songs to great memories with my friends.
The best gift I have ever received would be a Harley Davidson tricycle. I got this bike for my 10th birthday and remember riding this bike around and thinking it was the coolest gift ever!
If I could go back in time, I would travel to the year 2016. This was the year I entered high school and I'd love to relive the experience.

I don't really have a favourite musician, I enjoy listening to everything. If I had to choose a specific genre I'd have to say country music.
The best gift I have ever received is my son Kane. I feel very blessed to have a sweet boy.
I would travel to the 80's as I loved the style in the 80's. The bright colours and big earrings.
I love all types of music, music can make you want to dance, it can make you cry. It can describe feelings and awaken a memory.
My best gift I ever received was one I had given to my sister. I drove to her home in Hamilton the day of her birthday, rang her door bell and she was so shocked to see me she slammed the door in my face, opened it again and cried while giving me the biggest hug ever.
I would go back to before 2001, as my mom, my best friend passes that year. Oh, to have one more day, week or year.
If I had to pick who my favourite musician is, I would have to say Luke Combs. All his songs are amazing!
The best gift I ever received was a cell phone. In my opinion, this is the best gift because I can keep contact with my family and friends wherever they are.
I think I would go back in time to the '80s. I would go back for the fashion trends - the big hair and neon colours. It would be a fun decade!
I enjoy the band Queen or anything 70's and 80's.
The best gift I ever received was my son.
I would travel back to 1979 and go to my old campground.
