Canada Day

Shame on Canada’: Thousands attend Cancel Canada Day rally on Parliament Hill.

Here again I just can’t pass this by without giving my opinion. The thing is. Yes, it was a great wrong that was done years ago, relating to a lot of things. Not with just the children. But in saying that, it is no reason in my eyes to stop a day of celebration like Canada Day. Heck, there are a lot of things we have to celebrate, which has nothing to do with the past. I believe, that the past should be left in the past. Learn from it and move on. My wife and I enjoyed our day, our home, and family, along with all we have accomplished over the years here in Canada. And, with all that we have been through for the past two years with this virus, Canada Day celebrations looks mighty damn good to me. But hey! That’s me, you do what you want. All these demonstrations isn’t going to make one I OTA of a difference. Not for me, anyway. GW

Morning Chat July 2/2021

Good Morning! Well … it’s a nice sunny July morning here in Port Loring, Ontario for change. Sure looks nice out there, especially after my lovely wife and I mowed our lawn yesterday. The blackflies are gone now, and the mosquitoes haven’t been all that bad so far this year. The horse and deer flies are also easing off too, which makes me smile. Yesterday I got to work in the afternoon building the tripod affair that will hold our new swing that I made last winter. I have to admit, there is a lot of work involved in getting everything all done up the way we want it. I will take a few pictures and share it with you when all said and done. If lucky, I should have it finished sometime today, other than putting some wood preserver on the tripod. And picking up some bolts and chain at Home Hardware here in town, so I can hang it. So it will be another busy day. But we are doing the things we like. And along with that we live in the nicest part of all Ontario, Fresh air, beautiful scenery, animals and birds of all kinds that visit our bird feeder. Heck! Just to sit on our front porch is sure something. With that, I am off for some bacon and eggs that my lovely wife is making me, and I am thinking a coffee out on our front porch is in order this morning. Just because we can. Take care and stay safe.

Morning Chat, July 1/2021

Good Morning! And happy July 1st to you all. Boy, time is sure flying by these days. It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. And we did have a touch of rain through the night. The good news weather wise is, we should be seeing some sunshine later on in the day and into tomorrow. We needed the rain, but now we need the sunshine, so folks can get outside and soak up some vitamin D 3, that pretty well everyone is low on these days. And being low on vitamin D can cause all kinds of problems health wise. Highway 522 is really busy these days with folks from all over coming into our small community. Extra care will have to be taken. Truth be told, we have more cases of this virus now in our midst here in the North than ever before. Reason being, a lot aren’t doing what they should be doing. It seems that now that they have had the vaccine, they think they are invincible. But they aren’t. There are 62 active cases, 57 in Nipissing. On another note, my lovely wife and I went to town yesterday to pick up our groceries that we order online, so we don’t have to go into any stores. The stores though were packed with people. Time will tell how we make out with all this going on. I just hope the virus doesn’t evolve into one that the vaccines can’t fix. As they are saying …. we really haven’t changed things that much yet because of the delta variant, and the fact is, the vaccines, with only one dose, are only about a 30 per cent efficacy. So a lot of people can still get really sick. Again, time will tell. While in town, we visited our son in his apartment’s parking lot and chatted for a bit from a distance. We then ate our lunch in our car and headed on home. We had a great day, actually. Other than my car needing a new battery, which my good friend Kerry here in town has ordered for us. I will get that put in today some time, after we finish up our mowing. With that, I am off for my morning bowl of cereal and will then get to work. Take care and stay safe. GW

Morning Chat June 28/2021

Good Morning! It’s another cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. We did have some more rain through the night. Things are sure green now. Just what we needed. The temperature getting out of bed was sitting at 20.1 C | 68.18 F. Not to bad, but it will warm up as the day moves forward. For those with allergies our air is pretty good today, even with the high humidity. We should see some sunshine a bit later. Which will make things nicer for those that want to do some outside work. Highway 522 is still busy these days, and I suspect it will get a lot busier nearing the middle of the week with the long weekend closing in on us. On another note, if the rain holds off I am going to build a tripod affair that will hold the new swing I made last winter. Then when my wife and I get tired or want to rest a bit we have it to sit on. The swing itself turned out great. The tripod is going to be a challenge. We will have to see how that goes. The reason I want to build it, is that if we ever want to move it, all’s we have to do is unhook the swing and away we go. With that, I am off for my morning bowl of oatmeal, or Porridge as we used to call it years ago. There is nothing better to lower your blood pressure than Porridge. It also helps with a lot of other health issues too. Take care and stay safe. GW

Buy only Canadian

Canadian food is out their, folks. Keep an eye open for it, and keep our jobs here in Canada. Especially now with our very own fruit entering into the picture. Food for thought, so to speak.

Interest rates

Hmm! And people today say they are having it hard with interest rates. This video if nothing else shows these young folks what us older folks have had to deal with over the years. But we made out. Today they would be protesting in the streets, LOL. Take care and stay safe.

Oldie but a goodie

This is one of my most favourite Commercials, which was made many years ago. How many of you remember it??? I sing it to my lovely wife occasionally. LOL

In the News Today

Teachers need ongoing anti-Black racism training, experts say.

You know, it makes me shake my head wondering who these experts are. LOL I believe that they are taking things too far these days. It seems you give someone an inch, and they then want a mile. And even then they won’t be happy. My opinion only.

Morning Chat for June 27/2021

Good Morning! It’s another warm, muggy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. The temperature waking up was sitting at 20.5 C | 68.9 F. It will warm up more as the day progresses, and we could see some more rain. But in saying all that, we might if lucky see some sunshine later on. Speaking about rain, we did have a really nice rain through the night, which was needed as things were very dry. You can almost see a smile on the trees and plants. My vegetable garden is growing leaps and bounds these days. We also have been eating fresh lettuce salads from our garden, which is sure tasty. It’s amazing how fast it grows after a rain. We also have blossoms on our zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash and pumpkins. So it won’t be long before we start seeing some other vegetables. Which will be nice. I can’t wait for a tomato sandwich. This year I planted a bunch of low acid tomatoes, thinking they might be a bit easier on the old stomach. We will see how that goes. I had some very old seeds from years ago, and they all grew. Yesterday I worked on my old Stihl Weed Eater which has been giving me some problems. I have had it for over twenty some years and hardly ever had a problem with it. I got a few prices to fix it, and they all wanted almost as much as a new one. LOL So I decided to order a brand-new carb for it complete with a new plug, gas line filter, gas line plug for the tank and a few other things. Total price 30.00 with free delivery. I installed them all, and it runs nice but still not the greatest, but maybe I can touch it up a bit as I use it. I will have to see how that goes. There is always something when it comes to older machinery. The problem is, most of the new things they are making today isn’t worth a damn, being made so cheap. Oh well, what can you do? With that, I am off for some pancakes my lovely wife is making, and will then do some work in our new shower house. Take care and stay safe. GW Click on Picture Below to Enlarge.

It’s pretty hot all over these days.
