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

Taxes In Canada

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

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.
