Adapting

We are all making changes to the way we do things and lifestyles are on hold for everyone but hermits. As societies, we are adapting to changes being forced on us on a daily basis. The messages from country to country may differ in specifics but generally, the world has been told to protect itself […]

One Giant Step Backwards

In Canada, as it is around the world, public health officials are leading the fight to keep us safe. They are not offering the cure, but giving us once again, the information we need to avoid getting sick and how to avoid making others sick. It’s nothing new. We were taught about it in school […]

More Delays

To start at the beginning go back one post 😉 Part 2- Crossing the Dish Whoever penned the phrase “Misery loves company”, has never sat on an airplane. Absolutely no one is enjoying each others company. Miserable? Yes. Happy to be with others who are miserable? Not a chance! I know I wouldn’t want to […]

Delays

The coronavirus, aka Covid-19, has turned what for me, is usually a miserable experience, into a potentially deadly miserable experience. The plane crashing is the least of my worries!

The leader is a bizarre mix of P.T. Barnum, the self-promoter who figured that you didn’t have to fool them all, […]

All of these injuries healed over time, with very little residual effects short of a couple of scars. I have been on crutches a couple of times but have never required […]

Rule Of Signs

My flight to The Playa is booked for February. Three weeks on the sand, just me and the insects. I can already feel the itch. Even though I am not physically there, my constant communication with Wendy, allows me to stay in the loop with The Playa, at least in a business sense. This is […]

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 […]

Time To Take The 'Twit' Out Of 'Twitter'

I am not one of those people that reads the paper everyday, trolls internet news websites and has CNN turned on at all times. I know people like this, but I am not one of them. I watch an hour of news during the week, the half hour Canadian National broadcast followed by the half […]
