2020

My COVID Christmas

It’s Christmas and all around the world people are celebrating the holiday season. This year it is a far different experience. We are not getting together in large family clusters, sitting and gorging ourselves on roast beast and ant-acids. This year is about Zoom calls, text messages and e-mails with loving sentiments. It’s virtual hugging, […]

Even though the last 10 months have been hard on all of us, the next eight months will be crushing. That is the amount of time it will take for enough doses of vaccine to reach Canada to make an impact. Unless of course we only give the vaccine to people over 50, and give […]

What Comes Next

All of us, well at least the ones that are trying to avoid getting sick and dying, have spent many hours looking into our crystal balls trying to discern the future. What will happen next? That is the question we have all been debating since the beginning of 2020. From the outset of this pandemic […]

So maybe I laughed at the people that dug bunkers, I’m sure that a few of you did as well. Stock-piling cans of Spam and hoarding toilet paper. I chuckled at the absurdity of their actions, who needs to own a dozen can openers?? Well, my province just went into lockdown, code red, stay at […]

More Crazy Days To Come

WOW!!! That was crazy!! I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat for days! It was like watching a train-wreck in slow motion! I couldn’t look away!!

Only In America

Now I understand that I am not an American citizen, and for the most part get my information in ten-second sound bites, but as I see it, the only way Trump would be the smartest guy in the room, is if everyone else left. Just so I have this straight, being from another country and […]

It's An Overload

I find there is too much going on in the world and that managing to have one complete thought, before another one pops into my head, is all but impossible. It would probably help if I didn’t spend time watching and reading the news. Mind you if I didn’t, I might never have known about […]

Dumpster Diving

You know it’s time for a change, when you find yourself standing in disbelief at something that you have just witnessed. Worst yet, something that you have just done. I had me one of those moments a few weeks ago… It was 5am and I had just finished stocking one of my customers and am […]

     There is less than 100 days remaining until the United States goes to the polls to elect or re-elect a President. It’s hard to believe that it has already been four years since the populous, well almost half of the ones that voted, put P.T. Barnum a.k.a. D.J. Trump in the White House. So, […]
