Covid

   Being back at home means that I must deal with reality and get myself back on the program. This means back into the clinics for blood-work and rolling up my sleeve for more vaccinations. There are also things to be handled around the house, and although I may not be the man I once […]

Going For A Drive

   I don’t have a bucket-list, but I do want to spend some of the time I have remaining with my wife, doing things that retired people do. Deciding what retired people do, is not as easy as you might think. The list of retiree’s activities includes things like needlepoint, volunteering, joining a bocce league, […]

Was It Ever Close?

When the coronavirus first arrived, I thought that this was it. This was the thing that the world needed to bring it together. A common foe that would galvanize the species. At the outset it looked like I might be right. The ‘smart’ people stepped up and took charge, and we listened to what they […]

The Covid Connection (Snow Job Pt 2)

I guess it was inevitable after two years that I would finally have contact with the dreaded virus, COVID-19. It wasn’t, the I had contact with a guy that may have had contact with a guy that had definitely been in contact with some one that had the coronavirus, sort of contact.  No, this was […]

Well… Isn’t that something… Three of the biggest bozos in the United States, are supporting unrest in a foreign country. The chubby Cheeto himself, and two would-be Trumpers, Cruz and De Santis, are sending love out to the protesting truckers in Canada.

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
