Free Walking Tour Apps - Rome & London
The three Walkabout apps have travelled to over 60 countries around the world over the last 4 years. Because of their great success, I have chosen to give them away for free. The apps run on Apple iOS phones and tablets and Android tablets.
The apps can be used onsite, while in Rome Italy, or London Ontario, or they can be used as you relax at home or at the cottage.
Heart of London Tour

The Heart of London App has been recognised with a Provincial Award and now a Municipal Award
The app is available in the Apple Store as well as the Google Play store.
The Heart of London app continues to be a favourite, with multiple downloads daily! The Heart of London app was developed for Android and iOS tablets and smartphones. It provides a multimedia tour of the Forks of the Thames River in London, Ontario.
"La Vista di David" - David's View - (Oil on Birch, 10 by 30")
If you have visited Florence, Italy, crossed the river and climbed the steps, you will recognize this view from Piazzale Michelangelo. It took 163 hours to complete the work. Each front row building averaged two to three hours to complete. The church took about 22 hours. It was fun painting this, and less stressful than "Oh Look a Castle", as I was not painting for someone; it's just for me, and hangs the living room. Sometimes, at the end of the day, I felt that I had painted for hours and gotten nowhere. Other times, painting a series of buildings made me feel that even though I still had hours of time ahead of me to finish, I was moving along just fine. Click here to see progression photos.
"Oh Look a Castle" (Oil on Birch, 12 by 36")
"Oh Look a Castle" was a gift for my god-daughter, Brittany. It depicts a palace in Mantua Italy, the colosseum in Rome, and Britt's favourite building (from the outside) the Duomo, in Orvieto Britt and I travelled for one month to all corners of Italy and like to reminisce about the trip. This painting will help us do that! My high-school art teacher, and good friend, Mary Redekop, said "Someone would have to be crazy to paint that church!"

Words from Deb...
My entire career has been filled with satisfied clients who have experienced positive and productive technology based learning with me. I know the technology, the terminology, and the tricks of the trade. Most of all, I know how to share what I know with my clients in a positive, stress-free, learning environment.
I am tech savvy with the ability to listen, demonstrate and explain what you are trying to do in words that everyday people can understand. I will help you with a follow-up plan of study and success. Individual and corporate training is available.
I am currently presenting a series of workshops at Bluewater Health Hospital in Sarnia and working with the London District Catholic School Board.
What do I know?
Check out the Software Support link to see a list of applications with which I am familiar and can help you achieve technological success. I am available for one-on-one learning, corporate training, website design, and as a keynote speaker.
Web Site Design
I have been building websites and teaching how to build sites since 1995. The secret to building a useful website is teaching the owners of the site how to maintain it on their own, so there is no need to pay any monthly editing fees. Examples of sites can be seen at: St. Thomas Elgin Second Stage Housing , Alma College Alumnae, Icap London, Rock Your Career Club.
STEGH HUGO Project
It was a wonderful team experience at the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital as it implemented HUGO throughout the hospital. HUGO is part of the Cerner® solution which enables physicians, nurses and other authorized users to share data and streamline processes across the entire organization.
I developed and delivered training sessions to over 300 nurses. We all learned together and finished up the classes ready to move forward with the new technology.
The photo shows me in my football jersey in "ready-to-go" position, just waiting for a nurse to call for help!
The Art of London, written by Nancy G. Poole. is now available as a free download at:
It took 90 hours for me to convert this original paper-based publication to an e-book. It has been made available by an anonymous donor for everyone to download for free. It is a wonderful read. I can honestly tell you that because I have read it at least 10 times! It is loaded with information and great stories about the progression of Art in London and our many artists.
