Happy anniversary darlin

We were married for 45 years and forty one days. The first time we met you were wearing a very short Nova Scotia plaid skirt and climbing up and down a rolling stockroom ladder, moving cases of Arid deodorant cans from a skid to a stockroom shelf. Having time to kill and being junior management I offered my assistance and stood at the bottom of the ladder and started handing you the cases and watching you climb up and down the ladder. After three or four cases you stood at the top of the ladder, turned and said "My name is Janis and I think you've helped yourself enough here. thank you very much.".

Panic in the stock markets and panic in the White House?

Quebec la bellicose province

With a niqab ban, anti-immigrant rallies and now a gun registry protest, the next thing you know Quebecers will start wearing cowboy hats and demanding that the rest of us will have to start kissing their asses.
A Quebec pro gun group was planning a rally to protest against the Quebec gun registry laws at the park commemorating the victims of the Polytechnique Montreal massacre, our worst mass shooting when fourteen female students were killed because they were women on December 6, 1989.
The group called Tous contre un registre Quebecois des armes a feu (All against a Quebec registry) was planning their rally in the park, two days before the 28th anniversary because it is a controversial location and it will get attention, according to a spokesperson Guy Morin.
Well it got a lot of attention, all negative and as of this evening they have changed their plans. 
Look Guy, i get that you want attention to your cause but you might consider changing the name of your group to something shor…

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Where my grandson baits me with a Norm joke

While agonizingly reading this eight page book about the Lego Batman movie and all of it's characters, for the umpteenth time, my seven year old grandson turns to me and says...
"Grandad you know Robin, Batman's sidekick, he's really a Dick."

I need to start communicating with more adults.

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …

Age might play into this

Don’t care if Trudeau does not change how we vote, I’ve only got one election left before I am no longer capable of a coherent thought and that might even be a stretch. Hell, with Trump or the impending fallout from the collapse of neoliberalism or the self cleansing that our mother earth appears to be taking upon herself for her own survival, maybe we all only have a couple of elections left as an independent nation.

Don’t care if Trudeau doesn't re-instate protection for our waterways, so that he can build his pipelines and they are now his pipelines. The market will keep the shit in the ground, it will remain unprofitable. 

Don’t care about the small stuff he does like removing the corporate tax loopholes for small business owners. Ran my own business for twenty-five years, chose not to do it, it was cheating. If an owner fires employees because she or he can no longer legally evade taxes, then her or his business model is eventually going to fail anyway, fucking employees, suppl…
