Bad drugs, fast cars, and mean people in Madoc

Seem to be having strange xmas memories this year. Might be the drugs. This over the counter stuff seems to have all sorts of side affects.

One such affected xmas memory involved selling greeting cards for the Rust Craft greeting card company. They gave me Eastern Ontario as a territory and a six month old,1972 Gran Torino, 2-door, hard top, as my company car. 
The Torino had no ass end and probably the worst car you could choose for winter driving, along the eastern end of the 401, which was posted at 75 miles an hour in some stretches back then.

Harper's P. P. envy

Apparently Steve of all things Harper, has a Harper's Photo of the Day site, that was started January 2010.
President Obama's team started the White House Photo of the Day site on January 9, 2009 while he was still President elect.
Sadly, one of the worst cases of Presidential Photo envy, that I have witnessed.
