Good Morning Port Loring

Once again we are waking up too sunny skies. Makes my day seeing the sun first thing. It is still quite cool though, with temperatures sitting at -5.1 C | 22.82 F Highway 522 is bare and dry throughout this morning, which will make travelling nice. My lovely wife and I did take a trip to North Bay yesterday to have lunch with our son and to pick up a few items, along with some groceries. The roads were a mess which dirtied up my nice shinny car. That will have to be addressed in the coming days. We met our son at Casey’s Grill & Bar and had a great meal. It’s located at 20 Maplewood Avenue, North Bay, Ontario. We all had a Club Trio
Half a classic club sandwich paired with roasted red pepper soup and a side Caesar salad. It was a delicious meal which cost $14.00 each. My son bought as it was my birthday which was a special treat. The meal was great but the visit with our son made our day. Living so far away it is hard to see our two boys, and when we get the chance to see them we take it. So with that I am off to put some more wood in the furnace and then will see what the day has in store. Have a great day!. GW

Lunch with our son Karl yesterday. Thanks, Guy!

Good Morning Port Loring

A great looking day here waking up. The sun is shinning once again and other than a touch cool it is shaping up for a nice day. Temperatures were sitting at -6.5 C | 20.3 F It will warm up as the day progresses and even warmer for tomorrow. We should get rid of a bunch of snow by the weekend. Highway 522 is bare and dry which will make traveling good today. My wife and I did go to North Bay yesterday to pick up some things, that our son Karl fixed up for us. It’s great having a family of techs. We then picked up a few items and had lunch at East Side Mario’s. We both had a Budda Burger. A 6 ounce char-grilled patty served with crisp romaine lettuce, tomato and red onion on an ACE® Bakery bun. Topped with your favorite cheese: Provolone, Gorgonzola, Pizza mozzarella, Goat cheese OR Top with two strips of bacon.. My wife added a Caesar salad to make things a bit healthy. LOL I added a bowl of Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup. I have to say it was a delicious meal. Also, the waitresses were very nice. Oh! And a piece of Strawberry Cheese Cake which we shared. It was actually free as it was my wife’s birthday. So great day for sure and the weather was an added plus. Have a great day. GW

Tarragon: A Herb of Kindness

Tarragon helps your body make red blood cells, which are, in turn, responsible for moving oxygen around in your body. Which I found helps in the prevention of cancer and many other diseases. The way it works is, lets take cancer; tarragon is a sweet tasting plant with a distinctive flavor of licorice. When cancer cells find the sweetness of tarragon it gobbles it up so to speak. In doing so the oxygen is taken into the cancer cells, and they are disintegrated,  Leaving the healthy cells to do what they are suppose to do, and gain strength. You don’t need a whole lot, a 1/4 teaspoon mixed in with a few pieces tomatoes is all that is needed. Once a day.  Or you can simply snip off a leaf or two from you garden, as it is easy to grow, and eat it.  Can’t get much better, or easier than that.

New Jobs

Hmm our Government here in Canada says it will  be contributing $110 million in partnership with the government of Ontario, which will match our investment in Toyota.” Trudeau said. Doing so will enable 450 new jobs.  My way of looking at it is that, that money is ours the people’s not the governments. . It’s my opinion that any jobs created by the government is not really an asset to us, if the government is paying for them out of our money.  As we the working folks other than government has to pay for these new-found jobs. I suppose they are thinking in the long run it might pay off.  But it will take a while if it does at all.   My opinion only.


George Carlin’s Views on Aging

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions.

‘How old are you?’ ‘ I’m four and a half!’ You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.

You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m gonna be 16!’ You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonnabe 16! And then the greatest day of your life! You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30.  Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50, and your dreams are gone….

But! wait!! !  You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50, and make it to 60.

You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that, it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80’s, and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; ‘I Was JUST   92.’

Then a strange thing happens.. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning.   Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s   family name is   Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love   , whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
And, if you don’t send this to at least 8 people – who cares? But do share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!
