Western world worries

Western world worries

I am a regular human being. I am not ‘normal’ as we have previously established, but average. I do what Canadians do. I get up. I shower, I dress, I look to see if I need to shave, or should just try the Don Johnson ‘Miami Vice’ studly look. This usually wins out, because I’m […]

I got lost on the cement highway

I got lost on the cement highway

Yes, we have a cement highway, and we don’t know what to do with it. It was a great idea (more on that later) but now it’s past its expiry date. It’s very bumpy. It’s not bumpy like the corrugated roads built by our pioneers out of logs, which even made the horses go ‘ouch’, […]

Being You

Being You

In the last blog I talked about lines between people. Now I’d like to turn that around. This may not be popular with all readers, but I am me, and that’s what I do. That, in fact, is what this column is about. You may not care for what I say. I don’t care. That’s […]

Too many Lines

Too many Lines

As you know, I study things. I watch people, and their behaviour. This probably came from my time at Queen’s, when I was a wanna-be engineer, and my roomie, also named Steve, was an ‘Artsie’. Traditionally, in the stupid ‘Frosh Week’ we, as brainless, terrified teenagers, were told to hate the artsies. We were also […]

Tired of 'What Ifs'

Tired of ‘What Ifs’

Long, long ago I lived in a world of ‘What Ifs’. I was young, and I wasn’t sure if what I was about to do would bankrupt me, imprison me, result in divorce, or generate a possible zombie apocalypse. I lost a lot of sleep back then, but I’m gaining it back now. The thing […]

Damn, that’s loud

Damn, that’s loud

Council is readdressing its noise bylaw. No big surprise, because their first attempt was a disaster. I was watching this, as I’m prone to do, and years ago Council struggled hard to build a noise bylaw that specifically targeted rural venues. This whole thing came up because neighbours complained about occasional concerts in two County […]

On Freedom

On Freedom

Canadians love to copy our American counterparts, who recently stormed the Capitol in the name of ‘freedom’. Sadly, in a desire not to be left out of the stupidity south of the border, we started challenging ‘freedom’ in our country. Think of it as a copycat crime. “Damn it! The Americans are jackasses, why can’t […]

Yay! Election time is coming!

Yay! Election time is coming!

It is time for reflection, on how our current Council has served us. We probably have different views on this. If your councillor did something good for you – like fix a parking ticket, or get your son out of jail – you’re probably pretty happy. If your councillor kidnapped your child and held him/her […]

Dealing with Dichotomy

Dealing with Dichotomy

As you know, I have several degrees provided through an established professional ‘Degree Provider’, Amazon.ca. I am now a certified psychologist, anthropologist, sociologist, numerologist, certified clairvoyant (though that certificate has not yet arrived. God only knows when that will come. Canada Post being what it is.) So I have spent a lot of time and […]

Is ‘Accommodation’ just a joke?

Is ‘Accommodation’ just a joke?

I’ve been busy, because Spring is our busiest time. Still, I try to keep tabs on what’s going on in the outside world, which is the County. I can’t even deal with a world outside of that. I’ve been watching the issue of ‘accommodation’, and I am puzzled. We have three issues to deal with: […]
