Chapter One

Well that’s that one done. Only another 29 to go, or whatever it’s going to take. Just the draft, not the final, but it’s still 5,000 words.. Now what have I been missing?

Aren’t Women Strange?

I know a lot of people are already nodding at those three words. And lots of people, mostly all women, are shaking their heads at those three words. To help you decide whether you’re on the nodders or shakers brigades, let me give you an example. 1 A few years ago my wife and I decided to get rid of... Sign in to see full entry.

Darn It. There goes that Selfie Theory

I was certain that the only people who took selfies were first time digital camera owners or first time cell phone owners. Perhaps people getting their favorite stars’ autograph would also take a selfie. And, naturally every politician that ever breathed would take his or her own selfie - actually,...

The Average American owes $61,000 when they snuff it?

Wow! I’ve got a lot of debt to catch up with. When I first arrived on this side of the Atlantic, I was in the bank opening an account - I had some money then. I saw all these large cars driving past and I mentioned in an aside to the mangeress, “People here must have a heck of a lot of money, when... Sign in to see full entry.

Goats Like Smilers? What About Frowners?

Seemingly goats (Capra aegagrus hircus) if you want to be pedantic about it, are drawn towards people who smile. Not just any old smile, smirk or sneer. It must be a genuine, closed mouth smile. If you don’t know how to pretend to do one of those, take lessons from a politician, from any nation. By... Sign in to see full entry.

9 Year old Gay Kills Himself????

I’m confused - again. A Colorado mother has just stated that her 9 year old son has committed suicide because he was bullied at school - for being gay? I am aware that I was born in a different age and am an ancient old fart. There was no such thing as sex education in my age. When I was 9 I didn’t... Sign in to see full entry.

Let me get this straight.

In this century of school massacres, the days of telling the students to lock the classroom and hide behind their desks to protect themselves against the killers are long gone. The killers now have rifles that can fire bullets through walls, doors, desks and bodies. The next logical step would be... Sign in to see full entry.

I don’t usually like giving advice, because I can normally see the listeners eyes glazing over as they say ‘Oh Yeah, that sounds interesting.’ Just before they nod off. But I found this out accidentally and I thought you might be interested. If you don’t like taking advice, switch off - NOW. My... Sign in to see full entry.

A Funeral Poem

I had a really exciting birthday weekend - I was at two funerals. One of them had the following ode in the welcoming bulletin. I quite liked it. We thought of you today We thought of you with love today But that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday And days before that too We think of you... Sign in to see full entry.

Did you read about NASA’s flight to the sun being delayed because of technical difficulties? They forgot their suncream. And on the other end of the thermometer, our President is freezing out Canada in North America’s NAFTA talks. Why do I get the strange feeling that Canada won’t particularly...
