As I sit by the wood stove, with the wind howling all around our old house, I am toasty warm. However our water pipes to the upstairs shower, toilet and laundry room have frozen for the fifth time this year. This has rarely happened in previous years. The temperature is -27 C with the wind chill. So naturally I want to talk about the weather like the good Canadian that I am because it is a proven fact that discussing the weather is a national pastime. This sort of Canadian discussion is typically a combination of complaining and bragging all rolled into one rant!

The English lost the battle of Cornwall. Obviously if you construct your battlements out of corn wall what else would one expect? The old saying "build it and they will crumb". And they did.

Crummy attackers. As soon as Richard the Lyin' heart opened his mouth and chomped down on the corn cob foundation he knew how if he placed his merry men (seconded from Robin Hood who made Marion type out a 'lend' contract) at strategic 'eat' points the previously peaceful Castle of Cornwall could be taken without losing their appetites.

1. I hate scary movies. As soon as the music rises ominously, I start pacing. Once in a movie theatre, at The Lord of the Rings, I jumped and managed to throw quarts of popcorn in a 4? radius all around us. It landed in people’s hair, on their coats… everywhere. My husband has never let me hold the popcorn again.

2. I am the definitive bookworm. I read at least 5 books a week till I was 15, stopping only if I had too much homework to keep it up. My mother used to beg me on nice summer days to , “At least read outside!” Sometimes, to limit my late night reading, I have read perched on... Read More

All of Southern Ontario and Quebec was threatened with massive power outages on December 22 after 60 hours of freezing rain with most ot the 350,000 homes still without power on Christmas Day.The hardest hit area was suppose to be 40 minutes from us with a possibility of 4 cm-5 cm of ice build up which could be enough bring down power towers.

Ah, yes…the joys of country living in Canada, True North Strong and Free and freezing cold. The reason we are free is because no sane person wants to fight us for the privilege of living here during... Read More

Subject: Scottish Blood

A wealthy Arab Sheik was admitted to hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his type of blood in case the need arose.

As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out.

Finally a Scotsman was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman in appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, 5 carats of diamonds, and $50,000 dollars.

A couple of days later, once again,... Read More
