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 […]

A Slow Road

Vaccine distribution is the hottest topic on the streets right now. Back in the old days, 2019, I would have said it was the hottest topic in the coffee shops or around the water-cooler at work, but since the coffee shops are all currently closed and hanging around the water-cooler is considered a ‘super-spreader’ event, […]

I support the actions taken at my border, both federally and provincially, in an effort to mitigate the spread of a deadly virus. Even though I miss the sand and the warm sun like many others, I can only shake my head at the impatience of some, and their misguided belief that “it won’t happen […]

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 […]

Hunker and Bunker

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 […]

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 […]

Currently Updating... Please Do Not Turn Off Your Life

I realize that every person on this planet has been affected by COVID-19, even the hermits. The disruption it has caused, to routines and life plans, is universal. But I can only tell you about me. What has this pandemic done to me? Time hasn’t stopped, and the calendar on the wall tells me that […]

I think I’m having a reaction to Phase 3. I might just be having a reaction to what appears to be happening in Phase 2 and therefore I am applying it to Phase 3 but I’m definitely having some kind of a reaction. Our area, relative to the rest of the world, has seen little […]

Warning... Relaxing Restrictions Could Lead To Hugging

Spring/Summer in my world has arrived. I have to include both seasons together because where I live, they are both so short in time that they basically comprise only one season, ‘Spummer’. This year cold temperatures have lingered, so doing anything in the yard has been limited. It’s no fun raking up debris from winter, […]
