Parrot at Auction

One day David went to an auction. While he was there,
 he bid for a parrot.
 David really wanted this bird, so he got caught up
 and thoroughly involved in the bidding.
 He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid,
 so he bid higher and higher and higher. 

Finally, after he had bid much more than he had intended,
 David won the bid; the parrot was his at last.

As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the auctioneer,
 "I hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have
 paid this much for it,
 only to find out that he can't talk!" 

"Don't worry." said the auctioneer, "He can talk.
 Who do you think kept bidding against you?"

Canadian Flags, Made In China…

You know this article about where our flags are being made is just a tip of the ice- burg.  I am glad however that it has been brought out into the open, only thing is will the Dalton Gang get to doing something about it. Not likely.  It will soon be forgotten’ as everything else.  Their little trick is, that when something like this comes along that is going against them,the powers that be, they just start other rumors and folks minds are swayed onto other things.  I can’t see why folks let it happ,en but they do.  Take A Look.  My Opinion Only

Chinese-Made Drywall

Kind of makes a feller think huh? Well……… just one more reason why we should be growing and building our own items right here in Canada. Take A Look. My Opinion Only

Officials are looking into claims that Chinese-made drywall installed in some Florida homes is emitting smelly, corrosive gases and ruining household systems such as air conditioners, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says.
Gas emitted from defective drywall corrodes copper wiring, turning it black, some Florida homeowners say.

Gas emitted from defective drywall corrodes copper wiring, turning it black, some Florida homeowners say.

The Florida Health Department, which is investigating whether the drywall poses any health risks, said it has received more than 140 homeowner complaints. And class-action lawsuits allege defective drywall has caused problems in at least three states — Florida, Louisiana and Alabama — while some attorneys involved claim such drywall may have been used in tens of thousands of U.S. homes.

Homeowners’ lawsuits contend the drywall has caused them to suffer health problems such as headaches and sore throats and face huge repair expenses.

The drywall is alleged to have high levels of sulfur and, according to homeowners’ complaints, the sulfur-based gases smell of rotten eggs and corrode piping and wiring, causing electronics and appliances to fail.

“It’s economically devastating, and it’s emotionally devastating,” said Florida attorney Ervin A. Gonzalez, who filed one of the lawsuits. It would cost a third of an affected home’s value to fix the dwelling, Gonzalez said.
