Driving Dominican

Seeing that I have already mentioned driving Dominican I thought I should re-publish the following, that and NFL football started this weekend and I did nothing but yell at my television all day Sunday. I probably shouldn’t get so involved…   February 2015   They drive on the right hand side of the road and […]

Living Without

Do you have a thing that you feel you could not live without? I’m not talking about vital organs, I know living without your lungs would be challenging! I’m talking about some kind of convenience or luxury, which you would not wish to wake-up every day without. If you were to think about it, you […]

Adios Rio

The Rio Olympics have ended. The games from a Canadian standpoint have been an outstanding success. We have managed to tie the Atlanta Games for the most hardware Canadians have won in any Summer Olympic Games at 22. The men even managed to contribute a fistful. Overall I am quite proud of my nation’s athlete’s […]

Olympic Pride

Okay Olympics it is… I love the Olympics.   If you don’t like the Olympics you should be ashamed. No matter where you are reading this you are from some country or other, and unlike the Winter Olympics, virtually every country on the planet is represented in the Summer Games.

A Good Book

Do you hear that? THAT’S RIGHT IT’S SILENCE!!!   We put them all on a plane and after two days of Honey’s intense cleaning we have managed to reclaim half of our house. Thankfully it’s the half we use. The basement sleeping quarters still lay in rubble. It is an area that can wait.   […]

Lazy Larry

Theresa May is to become Britain’s newest Prime Minister. I read in the New York Times that she is due to take up residence at 10 Downing Street immediately and that she will be greeted by Larry the cat. This made me laugh as I had written about Larry a few years ago, it was […]

Beach Day

Day four or is it five?  Honey is losing steam. Her grandma mode is fading and everyday she seems just that much more worn out. I think I can use this to my advantage.   “You know Honey,” I would say, “if we lived on an island thousands of miles away they are less likely […]

There is one real advantage to getting out of bed in what others would consider the middle of the night, the solitude. You are not really alone but at four in the morning you’re pretty damn close.   I personally like it, not the days when I’m getting up to go to work but the […]

Deadly Critters

It’s been raining here for the better part of two weeks which means two things, my over-fertilized wedding grass from last year has grown three inches and there are a billion mosquitoes lurking in it. They’re just waiting for me to mow the lawn. I can hear them buzzing out there, taunting me, “Yum, Yum, […]

I Pay Their Salaries!!!

Well it seems that the Americans are not the only country that can put fun into dysfunctional. We Canadians can serve it up too.   This week in Canadian parliament our Prime Minister, the right honourable Justin Trudeau, elbowed a female member of the opposition party in the chest. The New Democratic party yelled foul […]
