Chortling Corpuscles and Positive Platelets

‘Feel good now and the Universe will stand to attention for you.’ That is a rough translation of the summary at the end of the book. The book was ‘Secrets.’ I saw it when I was killing time waiting for a prescription to be filled; I didn’t have enough time to go for a coffee so I wandered into the... Sign in to see full entry.

Death by Blizzard or Life with Dog Sh*t? (A Pre-Spring Diatribe)

Sometimes I wonder. Take a Pit Bull sized dog and colour it tawny. It doesn’t matter if you name it Samantha or Precocious, just as long as you remember that it is not a Pit Bull, but a Pit Bull type, otherwise you may have to have it put down. Factor in the fact that it will average about 2 poops... Sign in to see full entry.

NaNo Edit? Start Anywhere

Here is the oddest thing. When I finished the NaNoWriMo last November – successfully, I would like to remind you - I had trouble finding a plot. But I read Chris Baty’s book ‘No Plot? No Problem,’ and worked at it. Now that I’ve decided to work at editing the November results, I am writing as slowly... Sign in to see full entry.

The Smell of Spring?

It is + 4C. Just think, the 2nd day of March and it is above freezing point. The runners are back on the streets, and we have had packs of motorcycles swooping past for the first time this year. And 5 minutes ago we saw a motor boat on the river. It was a black one and was in a hurry, but then... Sign in to see full entry.

A Quaking Bed?

It wasn’t too late last night, and the Olympics had almost finished but there was an ice- hockey game starting at 10.30pm. The game was going to be between Finland and Slovakia for the bronze medal. Not having a Finnish or Slovakian heritage, I wasn’t too fussy about watching that game. But, it was... Sign in to see full entry.

Ice Floes Floating Up-River

It is a weird sight. The St. Lawrence River is open. From here to the opposite bank it is water, pure and simple – especially pure, I hope. Yesterday’s rain & snow plus the high winds of last night have opened the channels at this part of the river. The ice-fishing huts have been towed away; the... Sign in to see full entry.

Britain Apologizes? – Not to me they haven’t

Gordon Brown, the British Prime Minister has apologized for a part of Britain’s Slave Labour history. Between the 1860’s and 1939, the British Government sent more than 100,000 poor children overseas to the colonies to do hard graft. An ideal opportunity, I would think, to get rid of any child...

Religious Brew Ha-Ha

Ell and I, and another couple, were on tea duty at church on Sunday. We hadn’t done tea duty with this couple before and it was interesting as well as annoying. When we got there at 10.20, they already had everything ready with the result that we had nothing to do. Apart from that, it was the men’s’... Sign in to see full entry.

Smile Please

This was in a local paper. It might be an old joke but it is new to me and I couldn’t resist posting it. A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received in the mail a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car....

How can you win?

“I’m serious. Do NOT buy me any chocolates for Valentines Day.” “Uh huh.” “Never mind the disbelief. I’m putting on weight because of all the Ferrero Rocher I’m eating just now. The hot chocolate doesn’t help either.” “You like the chocolates and you love the hot chocolate. You swear it makes you... Sign in to see full entry.
