I hope everyone is well. Or as well as to be expected, as these days it’s hard enough to get out of bed knowing what the day might bring. But on the other side of the coin, any day you can get out of bed and walk around is something to be thankful for. Weather wise, it’s a cloudy, gloomy day here in Port Loring. The temperature waking up wasn’t all that bad though, sitting at 2.3 C | 36.14 F. Well above freezing. It also rained for most of the night, which got rid of most of our snow. Which is fine with me. Truth be told, I would be happy if it stayed like this all winter. It sure would save on the heating oil bill. Speaking of the oil bills. I had our tank filled up the day before yesterday. It only needed 3/4 of a tank. I almost fell over when I found out what it cost us. For 3/4 of a tank, it cost us $1,250.00. That set us back a wee bit, let me tell ya. There is no way us here in the north can afford that. The thing is, there is no reason it should be costing us that much, living in a country … that has all kinds of natural resources just waiting to be tapped into. The thing that really makes me shake my head … is that some here in Canada think we are making a huge difference going green. Kind of a joke really, as in one had our powers that be doesn’t want us to use oil and gas here in Canada, but yet … we sell it for huge prices to other countries. All that we are accomplishing going green is nothing, truth be told, as all the large countries are carrying on doing as they always have. What I believe we should be doing, as I said many times, is to tap into what lies under the ground and make it safe to use. Not a big deal with what our scientists know today. Anyway, that is my rant today. That furnace bill kind of ruffled my whiskers a bit.
With that, I am off for a bowl of oatmeal. We picked up a few bags when we went to town yesterday. The trip there and back home was pleasant. We also noticed that around 30% of the people in the stores were wearing a mask. I guess they are realizing now, that it is better to wear a mask than laying in bed sick. My wife and I wear ours and feel good about it. We also put on some hand sanitizer before going into the stores, and when we come out. And when we eat our lunch in our car, we wash our hands with a couple of wash cloths that my lovely wife brings with us in a baggy. Anyway, you have a great day.
In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You Well.
