Spending Taxpayers Money

They are telling us that we here in Canadians have made more than 830,000 repayments of COVID-19 emergency aid benefits because they were not entitled. Which is a good thing, as if they took the money without checking things out and don’t need it, they should pay it back. But here again in the next breath our Powers That Be says. In June, the government proposed legislation that would have imposed fines or even jail time on people who deliberately lied on CERB applications. It backtracked after a public and political outcry. Again, here is what I think. If there is money available and you are in need, and I say in need, and you qualify for it, then by all means apply for it. But if you don’t need it, and are just taking it so you don’t have to work or using the money for things unnecessary, well then … I say the Powers that be, should go after those that did wrong. Just because we are in the midst of things that aren’t all that nice right now, there is still no reason for cheats to get away with it. The thing is, what a lot don’t understand is, that handing out all this money can’t be kept up. I wouldn’t hesitate to say that our country today, is so far in debt we might never get out of it. And the next thing is … it isn’t the Powers That Be’s money. It’s ours, the working people. But giving them the benefit of the doubt, I would hope that they are taking these things serious. But then again!! My Opinion Only.

Information Gone Crazy

Ontario reports 566 new COVID-19 cases for Oct 4/2020. Down from yesterday. Now that is a laugh, as in the next breath … they tell you that walk-in tests come to end across the province of Ontario. So bottom line is … yes the cases are down a wee bit, but they are not doing the testing that they were doing, which in turn lowers the count. This is just a way that they can now say …. Well … the cases are down, so we can keep things open for a while longer. LOL Makes me shake my head once again. I guess they figure that we the public are a bit slow with our thinking. LOL Hmm … they might be right in some respects for some. As there are a lot out there that sure isn’t taking things serious. My opinion only.

Morning Slice of life Oct 4/2020

Good Morning! It is a touch cooler this morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at 37 °F/3 °C. It will warm up a bit as the day moves forward. Which will make things nice for working outside. We also should see some much-needed sunshine today and into tomorrow. But then we are back to some rain for a couple of days. I am hoping the rain will pass us by, as I do have some things outside that I would like to do. Like painting the outside of the cottage. But, I have found that you can’t buck Mother Nature. She does what she wants, in spite of how powerful us humans think we are. LOL Highway 522 is real quiet this morning, but it is Sunday. A day of rest for some. For me … every day is the same, and when it comes to rest, I …. well, I rest when I need it. Which could be any day or hour for that matter. LOL On another note, the grass has slowed down a lot in the growing department, but I suspect I will have to cut it one more time in a few days. I like to put my bagger on the mower, as I can then gather the leaves and put them on my veggie garden, which in turn lets them rot through winter, and come spring … I have free fertilizer. I then till it in and get to planting. What could be better than that? Nothing. So with that bit of information under your hat, that is if you wear a hat, I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and maybe …. just maybe I will add a piece of toast with some fresh honey I picked up from a friend of ours last week. Honey you know … has a lot of great values in the health department. And with this virus going around we humans could use all the help we can get. Only the raw honey has what is needed to help us. Also, the great thing is, that for most parts it lasts a long time, without going bad. It is a bit expensive though, around ten dollars for a quart size tub, but there is a lot of work that goes into it. On the bees part that is. LOL Take care, and stay safe. It isn’t getting any better out there that’s for sure. We are closing in on the 1000 a day here in Ontario. And I suspect it will get worse than that. I also think we haven’t seen anything yet compared to what will take place in a month or two. The only help we got is ourselves folks!
