A Crappy Story

I don’t take very good care of myself. I don’t take vitamins and generally have a horrible diet. If it weren’t for Honey, I might never put a vegetable on my plate, it reduces the space for the meat. To me, Self-Health is a selective process. I’m all for vaccines but I’m not much for […]

Wobbly

In late May I hurt myself. I haven’t worked since. I haven’t said anything about this because the injury is severe and I wasn’t sure I wanted to mention it. Honey has returned to work in a limited capacity and I am sitting at home. Sitting is not quite correct because I can only sit […]

Harder Coming Home

In Canada, COVID restrictions are starting to loosen. As vaccinations increase and new cases decrease, we find ourselves at a point where we must start to decide on our new normal. Sure, the government is going to dictate some of the parameters, but ultimately Canadian citizens will shape the new normal by the way they […]

Act 3

A month ago, I turned 60 years-old. It wasn’t nearly as monumental as turning 16 was. Birthdays have pretty much been quiet affairs for the last few decades, gone are the parties and the large social gatherings of celebration. Oh wait… that’s the pandemic lockdown rules… my bad. As I have aged, the significance of […]

Don't Pledge the Sorority... The Hazing Could Kill You

The WHO (World Health Organization) announced that it has changed the names of the many COVID variants and will no longer refer to such variants as the B.1.1.7 variant as the ’UK variant’, but will simply call it Alpha. This way no country will be identified as a country of origin and people will stop […]

Keeping the Citizens Safe

We are back under ‘Code double-red, don’t leave your house unless ABSOLUTLY necessary’, health restrictions. I would say I was locked-down but that to me requires guards, or at the very least a door. But the restrictions we have all dealt with have for the most part, pretty much been an on-paper thing. What we […]

Herd-Immunity

First, we dealt with the fear of contracting a coronavirus that was deadly. Now we are dealing with a vaccine for the aforementioned virus, that could also have deadly consequences. It just doesn’t want to get easier. The last 16 months have been a COVID-a-thon. A never-ending, crazy dance, we have all been a part […]

He-Man Hands

My hands have become so dry from soap and sanitizers, that the nails are breaking, the skin is cracking and they are constantly leaving blood smears. To make matters worse, I work with cardboard. Cardboard is a sponge for moisture, especially the microscopic kind that lives within your skin. We can’t see the moisture but […]

1st-World Nonsense

Sometimes, you need to take a step back so that you can see the broader picture. Gain a new perspective and not be so narrow in your thinking. Pause, take a deep breath and see things for what they are. A case in point would be the notice Honey found taped to our back door […]

Solo Focus

A solo focus. This I believe has become the downfall for a vast majority of people. They see it one way and one way only, there is no variation to their focus. No matter what anyone says, they see it their way only. Do you know someone like that? They are the ones that you […]
