Well……….. this is the time of year, that young ones, along with older folks get to honkin’ and sniffin’. Some call it allergies. Myself, I call it nature. Thing is, one has to remember that all these things in the air that are causing our nose to run and things, are a part of living, a piece of the big picture, one might say. As soon as some folks sneeze once, in the house they go, or head off to the drug store for a cure, or, if that don’t work they go to their doctor for some other kind of drugs. I feel that 90% of all these drugs could and should be eliminated. I feel we are being used as Ginny pigs, to be experiment on, and so on, not to forget all the money that is being made by some folks. So……… you say, OK, you had your opinion, what should I do about it, I am in dire need of some help here. Well, I say this. First off, find out what is really bothering you. What is bothering you is natures way of letting you know you are not doing something right. What you should be doing through my eyes is forcing yourself to become more accustom to these things. Let it happen in other words.
You can do one thing though, that will help immensely if needed. That is to make up a small potion of warm salt water with a touch of baking soda and rinse your nose a couple times a day. Doing this will still allow you to keep the good bacteria up in there that is needed for good health, and at the same time help you to stop sneezing and things. Also, eventually you will become accustom to the new world out there and build up immunities, so eventually you will be able to get out there in the country and enjoy life like you should be doing. Simple as that. So…….. again, don’t be fooled what the Powers That Be are trying to force down your throat, literary. Think for yourself. You can do it, I believe in you. My Opinion Only.
People living in areas with more parks, trees and grass live longer and happier lives, with less violence and improved mental and physical health, according to research presented at the conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Chicago.
I have been saying this for years. Thing is nature is where we come from, were we are suppose to be, and, where we all end up. Thing is most can’t see it. For me though, it’s like looking at a huge wall, it’s right there in front of me, can’t miss it. So…………….don’t get wrapped up in the world of today, don’t be fooled by what the Powers That Be keep on tellin’ ya, as they don’t want you to believe that you can achieve what you want in life. They want control over you, they don’t want you to think on your own. Now get out there and enjoy your life to the fullest. Live for today, make plans, and enjoy nature, it’s all around you, as it is what you are. My Opinion Only.

You know for years now I just can’t figure why this country celebrates this months holiday a week ahead of the US A. I guess they feel we should be different or ahead of the US for some reason. Maybe the powers that be hate being seen as the same as the US. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel we have to do everything the same as the US does but for this holiday I do feel it should be one week later. Especially for us folks living here in the north. Why? Well, up here this time of year we are right in the middle of black fly season and for those that haven’t had to deal with these things, well let me just say they love humans. One kind of love I can do without. Another reason, it is always still cold and wet up here this time of year. So with them two items alone it sure doesn’t make for a nice holiday weekend for folks coming to the north. So there you go, my thoughts on this holiday weekend. Guess I will go and put a log in the old wood furnace as we got ice on the pond and light snow falling this morning. For my wife and I though, we never celebrate the holiday as given, we wait till the following weekend been that way in our family for over fifty years now. Have a great day.
A man from Charlotte, North Carolina, having purchased a case of very expensive cigars, insured them against, among other things, fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile, the man filed a claim against the insurance company, stating that the cigars were lost ‘in a series of small fires’.
The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. The man sued – and won.
In delivering the ruling the judge, agreeing that the claim was frivolous, stated nevertheless that the man held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure against fire, without defining what it considered to be ‘unacceptable fire’, and was obliged to pay the claim. Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars he had lost ‘in the fires’.
After he cashed the cheque, however, the company had him arrested on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.
You know for years I have been saying that we here in Canada have to become more self efficient. Well I still say that today. In my opinion we can’t be relying on all these foreign countries to keep us afloat. This thing with the US now for example, where the companies are buying US only, and back here in Canada folks are all upset. Here again I say, why get upset, get busy and buy Canadian. We should have been doing it years ago. The thing is, we have to look after ourselves first, simple as that. We can’t blame the US for looking after themselves first, they have to if they want to succeed. We here in Canada have to do the same. The Powers That Be have been taxing us to death here in Canada and around the world for years now. To much tax along with too high of wages. we pay tax on everything, what for? Years ago there was no tax and we were the greatest country in the world. Now we are going broke, no work and no companies even want to move into our country. Can’t say I blame them either. What we need to do is cut the taxes in Canada about 75 % and lower wages to about half and get on with it. What will that do? Well again, simple. It will put us back in track, jobs will flourish, and folks here in Canada will get to living like they should be. So…..I don’t get upset when I hear buy US only. No sir, I give them folks over there credit, as at least they are standing up for what they believe in. Will Canadians do the same? I don’t think so, but hey, you never know.
I would also like to say here. The good old US of A has been our friends for as long as Canada has be in existence, we are one. They have always been there for us and always will be providing we treat them with the respect that they deserve. This dealing with other countries abroad and dealing out the US was the wrong way to go. My Opinion Only.
