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 […]

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.   […]

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 […]

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 […]

You Decide... I'm Busy.

I know… I know… I didn’t even give you something old last week… my bad.   In my defense I have been busy and I have been writing but I’m not getting anything done. You know how that is, you put in the hours on a task and in the end when you look at […]

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 […]
