What Could Happen In Canada

This kind of shows you, what could … and will happen with the opening of stores and things to early here in Canada. All the red is new cases. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that this virus, is still with us stronger than ever. Oh I know, some will say … that is in the USA. Yep it is … but it is here too, and so far we have been lucky with most doing what is right. But the way some people are going now, especially with all these crazy protests and things, we could be in for some real trouble. You can protest all you want, not that it is going to do any good, but this isn’t the time. We just need to do what is right and hang in there for a bit longer, as our scientists are getting closer to some pretty amazing treatments. But if we don’t do what is right we could mess things up big time. My Opinion Only.

Header Picture

Doesn’t that picture in the header make you want to head on out fishing? Sure does for me LOL. That picture is one I took coming in after an afternoons fishing with my buddy Barry, here in Port Loring.

Carbon tax

Canada is warming on average at a rate twice as fast as the rest of the world, a new scientific report indicates.

The thing is it has only increased this amount in Canada. And another thing is, it has only increased 1.7C (3F) since 1948. It has taken 70 years to reach this amount. I will say that again … 70 years. To me it is no reason to get upset about. It also is no reason to force this carbon tax on folks. They say they are going to give it back. If this is the case why take it in the first place. Also, what they are giving you back, is just a piece of what we should be getting back, as this tax will raise prices from gas to food to all kinds of things. But the main concern is this. If you tax people to an extent that it hurts, people will start hoarding. When that happens no one wins. There is a lot better ways to save the environment than forcing tax upon companies and the working people. My opinion only.

Canadian Dollar

Low Canadian dollar means costs of fruits and veggies to rise.

So they say.  Well that is par for the course  taking into consideration that our Powers That Be has all but eliminated all our small farmers here in Canada.  On the bright side though it will be a plus to those that are still in the farming business here in Canada.  As the grocery stores will be forced to seek cheaper produce.  Which in turn can only be found here in Canada. Will this occurrence make for more farmers here at home?   I will have to think on that.  But in saying all this it is just one more reason to seek out a nice sunny spot on your own property and do some planting come spring.  If you do this you eliminate all of the above.  Have a good day.

Taking Care Of Our Elderly

Another item that might interest folks.
How about putting the very elderly pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home..
That way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks. They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ’s and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.
Each senior could have a PC, a TV, radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay $300.00 per week and with little hope of ever getting out. My Opinion Only.



Food For Thought

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Alberta years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the barn?
And, they even tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate thousands of illegal immigrants wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.  My Opinion Only.

In The News Today

In the news today they are saying that generations of schoolboys have long suspected: that eating your greens might be good for you, but it does not make you happy.  Well of course a cookie is looking much tastier but one should be taking their health into consideration too.  I don’t know where they come up with these things, well I do as most are just striving for attention.  They say happiness is the way to good health and yes it is right in part, but without good nutrition you can be as happy as all get out, and your body will still, eventually shut down and become sick.  So don’t listen to what is being said by others, listen to what your body is telling you and you will enjoy life to the fullest. If you choose the other way listening to others, well….you can laugh your way into an early grave.   My Opinion Only

In The News Today

Another item that gets me going, one of many these days it seems, is what is reported in the news here in Canada, or the USA for that matter.  When one opens a paper today or searches on the Net relating to news what do they see?  What they see is what is happening in other countries other than ours.  Oh a few things pop up now and then like our weather, or some things on politics, but hardly ever do we see what is happening right here in our own country.  For myself I couldn’t care less what is happening in other countries and if truth be known I believe we should stay out of others affairs and let them fend for themselves.    All this help to other countries in my eyes doesn’t really help, it makes things worse as the more we do the more they become dependant on others instead of themselves.  Like us here in this country, soon as one gets the sniffles today they run out and get the flu shot or see a doctor not realizing for one minute that they could treat themselves quite easily.  Folks don’t seem to realize that no doctor in the world knows your body better than you do. Not only do we let others sway our minds with our health we also do it with thousand of other things. What a shame.  I know…I guess it is easier to let others do things for you but……it isn’t what is good for you let me tell ya.  Have a good day, and as usual, my opinion only.   GW

Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

Christmas & Religion

I was asked what my feelings were relating to Religion and Christmas from one of my readers.  Giving it some thought I came up with this explanation and I hope it puts your interest to rest.

For myself that is non religious, I would have to say that I have always worked things out for myself, right into today.  For this reason,  I am called a “freethinker” because that’s what I do – I think freely, rather than believing.  People of religion usually inherit their beliefs from their families and for most parts folks have a misconception relating to people who are not religious.  It’s not that I am going against religion, nor am I one that take things for granted.  In reality it’s just the opposite, as my heart is running over, with the love I have for Nature, being together with my loved ones,  love for all my animal friends and most of all, the health, well being and happiness for my family, others and myself.

So, Merry Christmas everyone,  especially since the world didn’t end on Friday.




Do You Believe In ????

There was a question sent to me that asked, whether I spend much time dwelling on things that might exist or might not exist, like the here after.  Well in sincerity I don’t spend much time thinking about whether there is or there isn’t.  I don’t consider that a relevant question. It’s unanswerable and irrelevant to my life, so I put it in the category of things I can’t worry about.”  To each their own I always say.  You asked, I just answered your question with a bit of information taken from years ago.  My Opinion Only.

According to the Canadian Cancer Society

Today in the news they said that half of all the Cancers could be eliminated by putting into practice life style changes.  Well hey!!!! Hello……I been saying that for the past ten years or so now.  But thing one has to remember is that we also have to change the way we are manufacturing our food.  Eliminate all the preservatives, pesticides, hormone injections, flu shots, most antibiotics and over three quarters off all prescription drugs.  Not to forget all the fast foods we have on the market today.  Then one has to eliminate the way we treat cancer and other  diseases, like chemo and radiation and things like that. These ways are not the answer.  The statistics are there for all to see, just that most don’t take the time to look..  Most listen to what we are told, instead of doing what should be done and what is right. Folks I keep saying this. The answers are right in front of you.  Don’t be fooled, take the blinders off your eyes and start taking your life back. No one knows your body better than you do, no one.  My Opinion Only. Canadians willing to pay higher taxes for equality

Who in the world did they ask when taking this poll. Sure wasn’t me let me tell ya.  Most craziest thing I have ever heard of, pay more for taxes for equality.  Who are they trying to kid.  Thing is they expect us to believe it.  I do know though that Canadians love tax, as we are the only country in the world that is taxed to death and folks just walk around and say….oh, yea, well. guess it’s OK, we must be getting something for our money.  LOL LOL Wake up Canada.  My Opinion Only

Ex Rays & What They Do To A Person

Just one more thing to the list that shows that these radiation treatments aren’t  good folks.  I keep on stressing to folks to not have any ex-rays unless there is no other way.  In saying that, there is tons of ways of looking at things without having ex-rays. Now think on this, ex-raying ones teeth.  It’s radiation, radiation is deadly. Now think how close it is to your brain.  Doesn’t that tell you something????? if not, your not thinking clearly. Do the research and start taking control.  Take a look at this article.  My Opinion Only

A new U.S. study is suggesting patients have a conversation with their dentists about how often routine dental X-rays should be carried out. Researchers at Yale University found people who frequently got certain dental X-rays in the past — when radiation doses were higher — were linked to an increased risk of a common, but usually non-cancerous, brain tumour.

The study isn’t meant to scare people into abandoning dental X-rays altogether, but researchers want people to re-think how often they get the procedure done.

They say their findings are important because dental X-rays are the most common artificial source of exposure to ionizing radiation for people living in the United States, and that form of radiation is a known risk factor for certain brain tumours.

The Canadian Dental Association says the frequency of a dental X-ray depends on a patient’s oral health and notes that the procedures deliver very little radiation.

The study, which appears in the American journal “Cancer,” studied 1433 patients between 2006 and 2011 who had been diagnosed with intracranial meningioma — a common kind of brain tumour which often turns out to be benign.

All patients were between 20 and 79 years when diagnosed and lived in the U.S. A control group of 1350 people was used for the study.

Researchers found that those with the tumours were more than twice as likely to have had a bitewing dental X-ray — where an X-ray film is held in place by a tab between a patient’s teeth.

The study also found an increased risk of the brain tumours was associated with those who had panorex X-rays at a young age, a yearly basis or with greater frequency. The procedure is when an X-ray is taken outside the mouth and shows all teeth on one film.

Researchers note that a limitation of the study was that patients had to recall from memory procedures they had when radiation exposure was higher — something which may have led to under or over reporting of dental X-rays carried out.

Now in reading this, does it make you more aware of how dangerous radiation is????? Or are you going to keep on having them????? For most, well I know the answer, most will keep their heads buried in the sand and say, oh… well, the specialists know what is best for us.   Wrong you know what is best for you not no doctor or specialist.  Listen up, do the research, find out for yourselves and then make your own practical decisions not others.

Wake Up Canada

Good article wished I wrote it.  Lot of truth in the message I will say that.


‘Entitlement’  my ass, I paid cash for my Old Age Security!!!! Just because they borrowed the  money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of  charity or handout !! Gold plated MP pensions and Civil Service Government  benefits,  aka free healthcare, outrageous retirement  packages, 67 paid holidays, 20 weeks paid  vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that’s  welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a ‘greedy senior’ and my  retirement, an ‘entitlement’ !!!!!!…..scroll  down…………….

What  the HELL’s wrong with us???


Someone please tell  me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people  that run this country!!!!!!

We’re “broke”  & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans,  Orphans, Homeless  etc.,???????????
but spent 1.2 billions of dollars for G-20 events
In the  last months we have provided aid to Haiti ,  Chile , and Turkey . And now Khanistan ,  Pakistan ……home of bin Laden.   Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our  retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’  receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while  our government and religious organizations pour  Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$’s and Tons of  Food to Foreign  Countries!

They  call Old Age Security and Healthcare an  entitlement even though most of us have been  paying for it all our working lives and now when  it’s time for us to collect, the government is  running out of money. Why did the government  borrow from it in the first  place?

We have  hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved  aside to make room for the adoption of foreign  orphans.

CANADA:  a country where we have homeless without  shelter,  children going to bed hungry,  elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, lack of housing and clean water on Reserves, and mentally  ill without treatment -etc., etc.

They  have a ‘Benefit’  for the people of Haiti  ships and planes lining up with food, water,  tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical  supplies.

Imagine if  the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they  give to other countries.

Sad  isn’t it?

Health Issues

Had someone  ask me today what I thought of an add that came out in the paper today; that said folks that might be struck with cancer have the option of cutting parts of their body off  before it supposedly arrives or they even know they got it.  Think on this. First off we all have cancer cells in our body millions of them. Most never get large enough to be noticed.  Most never materialize to the point we need to even do anything about.  And then again cutting, burning and things isn’t the answer.  Nutrition is the answer.  Strengthen you body, do the research, listen to you body, don’t be swayed into things that for most parts aren’t true.  Take the blinders off, be your own person.  What we have to come to realize is, that we all have to learn to live with cancer.  It doesn’t have to be a death sentence, it’s an awakening, a reminder that our bodies are lacking some things.  All the money we pour into killing cancer is not the way to go.  Put that money into  fixing our food system. Take the poisons out of food take the additives out of food.  Its not our food what is the problem, what is in the food is what the problem is. All these man made chemicals is what is the cause of 99% of humans sickness, simple as that.  What makes me such an expert?  I am not, it’s just common sense. Its all there for every one to see, amazes me most can’t see it.  My Opinion Only

Cholesterol, Vitamin D & Sunshine

For a lot of years here on the Blog I have told folks that I don’t honestly believe that there is bad cholesterol.  And some have asked why.  Well it’s simple really, as if one does the research he or she would soon find that cholesterol is a major player in keeping us healthy.  Thing is this.  Cholesterol is like anything else in life, to much of a good thing can cause a bit of trouble, sometimes.    So here is my answer.  Where do you think what some call Vitamin D comes from?  Most don’t know, or even care. Some say the sun, which in one way is correct.  Thing what most don’t know and most physicians won’t or don’t tell you, is that to get vitamin D into your system, you need sunshine, as sunshine turns cholesterol into the vitamin D that you need.  So let me say that one more time. Cholesterol is very necessary stuff. It’s converted into Vitamin D by sunlight,  so…. Lack of sunlight prevents the formation of Vitamin D.

Now here is the thing.  Folks now head out to the store to buy up Vitamin D3, is this a good thing?  Well for most parts no as most over the counter items like vitamins are man made and not good for ya.  What I would do, would be to buy organic Coconut Oil and take a table spoon a day, broken down to three times a day, or a bit at every meal.  That’s all you need and not only will the coconut oil help turn the cholesterol into the D you need, it will also fix a whole and I mean a whole mess of other problems, that you might have.  Also a lot of things you don’t know you have, I will guarantee that.   Thing is though, if you don’t get outside and get sunshine, you will gather up to much Cholesterol, simple as that and that is the problem we are having today, to much. to much isn’t good no matter what it is. So to fix this problem you need what?  Sunshine my friends, lots and lots of sunshine.  Don’t be fooled, the sun is good for you, wont hurt you, even if you are fair skin. In fact, there is enough evidence out there today to say that the sun stops skin cancer an most other cancers as well.  Think on this, we are part of the earth, the earth needs sun to survive, or should say everything on the earth.  So why would the sun cause us harmIt won’t, unless you lay in it for to long or look directly at it, so come this spring, or even now, head on outside, soak up some sunshine and get healthy.  As I say, don’t rely on others to fix your problems.  You are your own healer, you were given that, so use it.  Have a good day and as always.  My Opinion Only



Salt & Sugar Are Not Bad For You

A recent article in the journal Nature, the much-maligned mineral salt has now been overtaken by sugar as nutritional public enemy number one.

 You asked my views on the subject. Well first off neither one in in its true form is unhealthy for you. What has happened is, the treatment that sugar and salt goes through is what makes them bad for you.   Simple as that.  The best salt you can buy will be organic direct from the ocean. When you get it home it will be damp in texture, large in size which needs grinding some for our salt shakers of today and a pinkish in color. Buy it this way and you can eat all the salt you want.  Sugar is the same with all the chemicals they are using today to make it nice and white an sweet it’s no wonder folks are getting sick. Better alternative is pure cane sugar and even better is not to eat it at all as I have done and eat only pure maple syrup.  There is no recipe in the world that calls for sugar that can’t be replaced using Maple Syrup.  I also believe that the Powers That Be should not be allowed to dictate to folks of what they should eat or can not eat. I am a big feller and if I make a mistake well it’s my mistake.   I guess their upbringing protected them to much, or something to that effect. So much for free will in this country.   My Opinion Only

Drugs Of Today

I really believe for most parts that drug makers want you to remain sick, tired, and looking for pharmaceutical solutions. The only way to correct this problem is for one to take a serious look at alternative medicine which in reality isn’t medicine at all.  Healthy Nourishment is what is needed and folks need to take the blinders off ones eyes and open ones mind to what is really happening out there today.  If this is allowed to happen  drug sales will plummet and these profit-mongering corporations will begin to go bankrupt after spending millions on the latest cancer drug that turns out to actually be deadlier than the disease itself.

Things are changing, times are changing, I can see it happening as each new days comes upon us.   It’s just a matter of time for these so called pill pushers and users of medicine that hurts folks to no end. Mark my words folks, change is on the horizon. My Opinion Only

Raw Walnuts Cancer & Other Things

Nutritional science now confirms walnuts contain nutrients that are necessary for healthy brain function, such as omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E; but even more compelling clinical research has emerged in only the past four years showing that walnut consumption reduces biomarkers of prostate cancer in humans, and suppresses prostate cancer tumor growth in the animal model. Other cancers walnuts have been studied to suppress include breast and colorectal. Remember this, only raw nuts an seeds are what you should be eating.  Cooked, baked in oil with salt added, has no beneficial matters to it at all and in time will contribute to what ails you.  Also think about this.  If one just looks at a walnut what do you see? A vision of a prostate or the brain should come to into view.  Doesn’t that tell you something?  Does me as it tells an shows me that Mother Nature is just busting at the seams to show you were to find help. And what do most folks do?  Well they refuse to believe that she can help. They refuse to believe that it can be that simple, they only believe what the doctors of today tell them.  They get sicker.   Take the blinders off my friends do the research and your questions will be answered.  Now don’t get me wrong here, as I am not totally against the medical profession.  I respect them to the point that they are doing just what they were taught to do.  They don’t know any better.  Problem is that most won’t even consider, or look at the alternative medicine, which is totally wrong through my eyes.  There are a few doctors though that are changing their views on things, which is a good thing, lets hope they keep it up and more comes on board quickly.   One last thing, store bought vitamins and over the counter items do not do what they say they do for most parts. Most are man made substitutes which our body rejects. The only thing they do is take money out of your pocket and puts it in the huge corporations pockets, simple as that.  Nutrition is the only way to go.  Fresh Organic Veggies and Fruits, along with items from Mother Natures Treasure Chest along with common sense.  Use these my friends and your world will open up  in a whole new direction toward health. My Opinion Only.

Cancer, Pharmaceutical Companies, Go Hand In Hand

When it comes to the folks that make drugs I firmly believe that they want you to remain sick, tired and looking for Pharmaceutical Solutions.  What needs to be done is we have to open our eyes towards Natural Solutions instead of the medicines of today, or most of them.  if we humans start to do this taking back control of our own bodies, these profit seeking folks will soon begin to go out of business,  The only way they can keep going is if you as a person keeps the blinders on.  I am thinking though that things are changing.  Especially when it comes to cancer and many other diseases. Folks are wising up, they are realizing that the treatments out there today isn’t helping, not one bit, if anything…. they are making things worse.  There are so many natural cures out there, just that folks minds have been corrupted into thinking that there is no other way..   Not true my friends.   When you find the problem, do the research and fix the problem.  I believe that all the diseases we get can be cured by good healthy nutrition.   We have to start putting into our body nothing but good food, not poisons.  Along with that we have to watch what we put on our skin toom as the chemicals that are in things today, like most shampoos,. soaps and things like that are  deadly.  So there you go my daily rant, do these things my friends, put a smile on your face and be happy, that is what is most important in life.  My Opinion Only.


Noah’s Ark

Now don’t get me wrong here I am not a religious person by no means and always will be that way but this article my Sister Barb sent me was pretty well right on the money and …well, worth the read.   Take a look.  Thanks Sis, good one

Noah in Modern Times

Here’s a funny modern day take on Noah’s Ark. It’s just for a laugh, so please don’t take it too seriously 🙂
And the Lord spoke to Noah & said: “In six months I’m going to make it rain until the whole earth is covered with water & all the evil people are destroyed. But I want to save a few good people, and two of every kind of living thing on the planet. I am ordering you to build Me an Ark.”
And in a flash of lightning he delivered the specifications for the Ark.
“OK,” said Noah, trembling in fear and fumbling with the blueprints.
“Six months, and it starts to rain, “thundered the Lord. “You’d better have my Ark completed, or learn how to swim for a very long time.”
And six months passed. The skies began to cloud up and rain began to fall. The Lord saw that Noah was sitting in his front yard, weeping. And there was no Ark.
“Noah,” shouted the Lord, “where is my Ark?” A lighting bolt crashed to the ground next to Noah.
“Lord, please forgive me!” begged Noah. “I did my best. But there were big problems.
First I had to get a building permit for the Ark construction project, and your plans didn’t meet code. So I had to hire an engineer to redraw the plans.
Then I got into a big fight over whether or not the Ark needed a fire sprinkler system.
My neighbors objected, claiming I was violating zoning by building the Ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission.
Then I had a big problem getting enough wood for the Ark because there was a ban on cutting trees to save the Spotted Owl. I had to convince U.S.Fish and Wildlife that I needed wood to save the owls. But they wouldn’t let me catch any owls. So no owls.
Then the carpenters formed a union and went out on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would pick up a saw or hammer. Now we have 16 carpenters going on the boat and still no owls.
Then I started gathering up animals, and got sued by animal rights group. They objected to me taking only two of each kind.
Just when I got the suit dismissed, EPA notified me that I couldn’t complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on your proposed flood. They didn’t take kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of a Supreme Being.
Then the Army Corps of Engineers wanted a map of the proposed new flood plain. I sent them a globe.
Right now I’m still trying to resolve a complaint from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over how many Croatians I’m supposed to hire, the IRS has seized all my assets claiming I’m trying to avoid paying taxes by leaving the country, and I just got a notice from the state about owing some kind of use tax.
I really don’t think I can finish your Ark for at least another five years,” Noah wailed.
The sky began to clear. The sun began to shine. A rainbow arched across the sky.
Noah looked up and smiled. “You mean you’re not going to destroy the earth?” Noah asked, hopefully.
“No,” said the Lord sadly, “The government already has.”

New Years Resolutions

You know. There is a lot of folks out there this time of year making them New Years Resolutions.  I gave them some though myself, but came across this fellow in the paper this morning that pretty well said my exact feelings on the subject. So…..since I agree I will just let things alone for another year.   Take a look. Click Picture Below To Enlarge.
