Exxon CEO: The Canadian Government has our backs

Rex Tillerson, chairman and chief executive of Exxon Mobil Corp., the world's largest oil-and-gas company updated his room full of shareholders on the $8 billion Kearl Tar Sands Project at their General Meeting in Dallas last week.

Kearls is the planned open-pit mining operation, the size of 20,000 football fields with expected production is 200,000 barrels of bitumen a day. 

The Sierra Club and other environmentalist groups challenged Alberta's hasty approval of the project and a Canadian federal court in March, ordered an environmental review panel to justify its decision to allow the oilsands project in northern Alberta to go ahead.

However Rex told his shareholders that he expects little delay in the $8-billion Kearl oilsands project in Alberta, despite the court challenge by the environmental organizations.
"My understanding is that the project … has been given a very high priority by the government of Canada and is moving along at a fairly rapid pace."
Yes sir Rex, my bet is that you receive weekly updates from our federal government. 

Don't worry, I'm sure Steve has your back.

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 …
