A Canadian Caribbean Province?

I’ve just read an exciting article by Donna Jacobs. In it she talks about a new Canadian Province in the Caribbean. Personally, I would be prepared to pronounce Caribb ean the North American way of Car ibb ean if such a thing came to pass; and it should have come to pass in the 1970’s when the Turks...

“So I’m not dying?”

“Curb your enthusiasm, why don’t you?” The Doc stated. “Your blood is dead on; your thyroid is perfect; your liver is great and the PSA test was in the mid range.” I’d been so busy bracing myself for bad news that I was at a loss for words – p.s. this is going to be cliché time if you don’t mind....

Boring Canada????

It wasn’t until last Friday, the day after President Obama’s visit to Ottawa that I realised how much America and its media disliked Canada. Friday’s US papers were full of snide and sneering comments about The President’s visit and how it had been the biggest thing in the history of histories as... Sign in to see full entry.

Sore Teats and Caked Bags will be a thing of the past

“Catch,” Ell called as she tossed a small tin to me. It was square, green, and with the picture of a cow on the lid. “What’s this?” The tin proclaimed itself to be Bag Balm, and was for veterinary use only. “It’s to stop your fingers cracking and bleeding. Trust me; Shania Twain uses it and it... Sign in to see full entry.

Following on from the eHow post

I am now a member, but after reading another member’s letter, I won’t be attending any seminars. The post was from a delighted member who had made their first 25 cents on the site. She had written 13 articles in the previous week and a half, which had 599 views – and she made 25 cents?? Personally I... Sign in to see full entry.

eHow? How Come?

After reading majroj’s post about registering with eHow, I logged in today for some information at the site. Why, I hear you ask? Because it is time I started making money at my hobby, in fact it will soon be imperative for me to make some money from my hobby. The information on the site was sparse...

A Wee Scottish Tale A man is cupping his hand to scoop water from a burn in the Scottish Highlands in order to have a drink. An approaching gamekeeper shouts at him, warning him in broad Scots, “Dinnae drink yon waater! It’s fu’ o’ sheep sh*t an’ coo’s pi*h.” The man turns and takes in the waving...

“Copy and Paste or Real Life?””

Ell showed me the article as I stood frozen to the spot just inside the front door. It is an article we see every week in every publication throughout the winter, and if it isn’t simply copied and pasted, I’m suffering from heatstroke. She only needed to show me the headline, knowing that it would... Sign in to see full entry.

It’s that time again.

The ‘nippy’ time of the year according to Canadians – for ‘nippy,’ read bloody freezing. The time of year when the Pine Siskins and American Goldfinches freeze and fall off their perches. The time when the hawks come in from the cold and frequent gardens looking for the odd Sparrow. A hawk just... Sign in to see full entry.

I just spoke to my sister on the phone

And I don’t know how I’m feeling apart from shitty and scared – I do know that I’m having trouble breathing and if anybody talks to me I’ll probably burst into tears I’m having to massage my left hand; the one that was gripping the telephone as she asked me when I was coming ‘down’ to visit – it was...
