Truck vs Blogger... VIII, My body parts are all over the place...

I am sure my readers have been waiting impatiently for an update on the recent developments in this saga, which is in its penultimate, i.e. physio-therapeutic, phase. (And any new readers, should there be such, are referred to previous posts in this blog, entitled Truck vs Blogger etc.,... Sign in to see full entry.

The Storm Has Erupted...

Since many of you seemed to like the first set of storm photos, I called my friend and asked him if he had any more. As it turns out he did, and sent me the rest of them, of which I am posting these two. In the first, what previously was an 'anvil' has turned into a giant paw, reaching out over the...

Stormy Weather...

Here in Ontario we may not be living close to Hurricane Alley, but we do get our share of interesting weather. Sometimes that also results in interesting pictures, as demonstrated by the two examples shown below. I cannot take credit for these shots, they were sent to me last year by a friend of...

Truck vs Blogger...Part VII, Fun with Ontario's Automobile Insurance

What with important matters like the collapse of the US-Mexican border, the spread of Islamo-fascism and the convulsions of the approaching US elections up for discussion, my recent incursions into the wonderful world and workings of the Ontario Insurance industry appear insignificant, to say the...

Splinters...

Freedom entails responsibilities. No sooner had I been liberated from the claustrophobia-inducing bonds of my cast, matters that had been justifiably put off could no longer be avoided. One can lead the life of the invalid only for so long before the world loses patience. Hence, among other things,... Sign in to see full entry.

Truck vs Blogger...VI Claustrophobia Anyone?

I have had a very interesting experience lately, but I must begin by telling you that I have a tendency to claustrophobia. I cannot say that I ‘suffer’ from it, since such occasions arise rarely. But I do feel a bit uncomfortable in very confined spaces. Rummaging around in the back of a closet may... Sign in to see full entry.

Today, on 9/11/ 2006, Just a Simple Message...

to all Americans, and especially those who, together with those from other countries, died on this day five years ago, and to their families and loved ones; and to the brave American soldiers and those of other nations, including my own, who are fighting Islamist terror in Iraq, Afghanistan and...

GET OFF THAT PHONE!

I do not, as a rule, engage in hectoring people on how they should lead their lives. Nonetheless, I am not above making recommendations when I am convinced that it serves the common good. Here is an interesting bit of research ( Discover, Jan 2006) which demonstrates quite convincingly the degree to... Sign in to see full entry.

Truck vs Blogger, Truck Wins, Sort of...V

I am on the mend. I have tossed my leg-brace into the darkest corner of my closet and, though still limping, have also decided to hang up my crutches. And yesterday I made arrangements for starting physio-therapy. However, the cast on my right thumb, which covers most of my lower arm, continues to... Sign in to see full entry.

Truck vs Blogger, Truck Wins, Sort of...IV

Yesterday I had surgery on my thumb. Today I look like the character in a cartoon, on crutches, one leg in a brace, one arm in a cast, who’s being asked, ‘Were you hit by a truck?’ ‘No, I just suggested to my wife she might lose a little weight!” ‘Oh? What happened?’ ‘She sat on me!’ But, of course,... Sign in to see full entry.
