Staring at my toaster. I know i know, you're thinking "gosh golly you people in Australia have narrow perspective, a toaster is a toaster." Yes but mine is rather like my attitude to life,simple. I purchased a SIMPLE toaster. It...wait for it!...reflects heat onto bread and turns it into either toast or charred simile because i had it set for high- heat 'crumpet' which as everybody knows takes three days to cook on 'normal' toast range so you turn it up via umpteen knob settings (on expensive browners ) that you need reading glasses to see....

“If we are only as strong as our weakest link, our species is utterly doomed…) Here is a collection of some of our country’s “smartest” criminals!

It seems a man, wanting to rob a downtown Bank of America, walked into the branch and wrote, “This iz a stikkup. Put all your muny in this bag.” While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, he began to worry that someone had seen him write the note and might call the police before he reached the teller window. So he left the Bank of America and crossed the street to Wells Fargo. After waiting a few minutes in line,... Read More


Scene: The year 2014. Many thousands gather to pay their respects and admiration to Tony the plumber who is touted by the bookies as an 'odds on' plumber to take out the 'Nobel plumbers' award by sheer dent of the fact that he actually turned 2O14...the year of the leaking tap dancing, plunger wielding, slightly interested plumber.

Speaker:"And the winner of the not highly sought after"I'll ring you back be right round in a couple of weeks,missus just had a baby,not feeling that great myself as i had to fix my wife's plumbing in prep for... Read More

I am a happy anomaly; a quirky mother, book lover, gardener and now a new writer. I was born an old soul, according to my mother and spent most of my childhood buried in a book.If there is nothing to read. I have been known to desperately scan the backs of cereal boxes or phone books.

I once casually mentioned, to no one in particular, that I was simply an ordinary mum, when the diningroom fell silent. “No, I am sorry, Mum, but you are definitely not ordinary; you are the furthest thing from a normal mother”, remarked one quick-witted daughter. Everyone broke out laughing including... Read More

Usually the deep freeze hits in mid January but this year it hit in November and stayed. Our pipes to one bathroom and our washer froze twice in the last three years and at least 8-10 times already this year alone.

I am choosing to laugh instead of cry but for some, with propane prices doubling this fall, they can hardly afford to heat their homes. The United Way is running campaigns just for those heating with propane on fixed incomes who simply cannot eat, pay for medicine and pay for propane. Supposedly Ontario sold too much propane to the States to dry their record-breaking corn... Read More

Perhaps people in power should listen as Dr. Seuss and I talk to my children.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

.Share and others will share with you.

More toys won’t make you happier.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Always say please and thank-you.

When you are grateful and thankful for even the smallest things, you will be happy.

.Don’t take offense quickly or every insult and slight personally; sometimes other... Read More

Ray Bradbury sums up how my kids often solved their own problems. As part of a busy household, they often came up with their own solutions to problems before I could help them.

This is best illustrated by one of my son’s when he was six years old. His grade one teacher recounted this story to me. It seems that she asked her class this question,

“How would you open the garage door if there were no grown-ups around?”

All the kids in her grade one class just sat and stared blankly at her, except my son Joseph. He was frantically waving his hand in the air and then excitedly... Read More
