Seems some people don't like how PM Harper is doing things. The media are sitting around waiting for anything at all. Nothing... not so much a drip never mind a leak is comming out of the new government. Well... we found out why. All meetings with PM Harper are being held under the "cone of silence". Yes thats right, the conservatives have purchased the "cone of silence" from the makers of "Get Smart". If only the Libs had been so smart during the campaign.... never mind... they still would have lost...

It is with displeasure that I must bring to you this sad news. Hours after posting several blasphemous cartoons of Ezra, editor of the Western Standard Magazine, The Wingnuterer has been a victim of fire bombings and one of his sock puppets was beheaded. Fortunately Zorpheous was clever enough to back his blog up on a seperate server so the damage from the fire bombings was superficial at the most. Evil Lord Bump however will be sadly missed by all. Our crack news team was on hand to get some remarkable shots of the fire bombing. The poor insulted folks that performed this rightious act (fanatical right wingers no doubt although unsubstantiated)have posted pictures of Evils beheading on their web site and we have re printed them here purely for your convienence and surely not to offend anyone.
The Poor misunderstood....
The fiest da resistance....

Sorry about the lack of posts in the past week. Not that anyone really missed anything.
Just taking advantage of this wonderful weather we have been having and doing some renovations on my house. I no longer have a kitchen... so if anyone would care to invite me over for a meal or two I would be forever in your debt. A guy can dream can't he... oh well... hopefully by next weekend I will have a brand new shinny kitchen. That or I'll be sitting in the Alberta Hospital recovering from a nervous breakdown... I still have to refinish the hardwood in the living and dinning room... will it ever end? This old house will continue after these short messages....

List four vehicles you've owned...
1963 Chevy II... blood sweat and tears... every penny I made and all my spare time went into this car before I was old enough to drive... it went up in flames a month after I got my licence...
1970 Cutlass Supreme... powder blue... 350 Rocket... was clocked on hiway 28 at 150 mph.... sat in the back of an RCMP car for an hour being lectured to by the sargent... sold it two days later...
1980 Ford 3/4 ton 4X4 inline 6... all torque no speed... great in the mud...
1983 Jeep CJ7 Laraedo... How I wish I could get this one back...
List four jobs I've had....
Bus boy... did not last long...
Partsdriver at a Datsun/Nissan dealer... learned that it would cost $268,000.00 to build a 280ZX out of parts... and that was in the early 80's...
Truck Driver... hauled everything from mobile homes to bulk mail....
Furniture repairs... it pays the bills...
Four places I've Lived....
Edmonton Alberta... Born and raised...
Stony Plain Alberta... yawn....
Spring Lake Alberta... Loved the country life... just could not afford it...
Four vacations I've had......
I was spoiled as a kid and went on a camping vacation every summer... don't think there is a lake in BC, Alberta or Saskatewan that you can drive to that I have not been to...
4 week trip from Edmonton to Waterton National Park, down to Yellowstone, over to Oregon back up to Vancouver along the ocean hiway.
Barkerville BC... one of the most memorable places I have ever been to... a step back into the past.
Spoiled again... for the past 14 years I take my ass up to the cabin every year for my vacation.... fishing, watersports, quading and plain ol' relaxing...
As usual... I spare everyone from this meme... I tag nobody... your welcome...

Thank you Prime Minister Harper. My faith in you has dropped by a mere 20%. Some of us Canadians voted for change. We thought you were the one to bring that change. Were we wrong? I was not impressed when I heard the news that you had allowed David Emerson to walk across the floor... Oh wait... There has not even been a floor to cross yet... Not to mention give him a cabinet position. Does the name Belinda ring a bell PM Harper? Remember the fuss that was made in regards to her little walk? Well as far as I am concerned this smells just as bad.
Then just to help out things a little you appoint Michael Fortier as minister of public works and government services. Someone who is not an elected member of parliament. I know that there is a precedent for this but personally I thinks this is just wrong.
I was expecting much much more of you and these two don't cut it....

From National Geographic News:
Early detection of cancers greatly improves a patient's survival chances, and researchers hope that man's best friend, the dog, can become an important tool in early screening.

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.
If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have
known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.
If your dog is fat, you aren't getting enough exercise.
Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
-Robert A. Heinlein
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your
pocket and then give him only two of them.
My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.
