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 […]

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!! Finally, on Saturday the media en-masse declared Joe Biden the President-elect of the United States of America. I feel like I have been sitting in a dentist’s […]

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 […]

     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, […]

My 'X' Got Me What?

If you were to take four ordinary citizens and put them in one of those ‘Escape Rooms’ that have become all the rage, they would work together and get out of the room, then head to the bar to celebrate their success. If I were to put four politicians into the same predicament, they would […]

What do you think? Head held high or in hand-cuffs? How’s he going out?   I had a friend say to me (keep in mind this is two Canadians talking), “None of this would be happening if it wasn’t for the Russia Investigation.” Shhhhh!!! Don’t say anything Uncle Jeremiah, let me set it up.   […]

World politics is not an area that I usually venture in to. Not because I don’t have an opinion but because I don’t feel I am knowledgeable enough to voice it. I wouldn’t want to say something incorrect because I don’t have the facts or have not considered the situation from all angles. I just […]

It Wasn't A Joke???

Every time I hear any news broadcast I find myself saying the same thing over and over to myself, “Thank God I’m not an American!!”  I’ve been repeating this since last May when the U.S. primaries started and Donald J. Trump’s face hit the airwaves. What came out of his mouth was insanity and before […]

A Glance Back... 2016

I started the year absolutely reeling from the events of the previous year. 2015 had come up one personal death short of an alternate movie title, with three deaths and a wedding. It wasn’t really a good year to know me. I think I spent the first few months of 2016 looking over my shoulder […]

Simon Says... Take One Giant Step Backwards

Well it’s been a week since my southern neighbours elected Donald Trump as their next president and lo and behold… the world has not ended. It could be simply that they have not yet given him the nuclear codes or it could be that we were making much to do about nothing.   I think […]
