Vive La Biere Libre

Only in Canada! Outsiders will be excused for wondering just what the hell Canadians are drinking these days. Well we now may know what's behind the political shenanigans.

First the Liberals, who were soundly trounced in the recent general election are angling to defeat the governing Conservatives and form a coalition government with the rump New Democratric Party and the lock-step support of the separatist Bloc-Quebecois - a regional Quebec-only political party. So we may soon have a separatist influenced national government.

If that weren't enough, there's a company out to upset the national beer market in the country with the launch of L'Independante beer! It's a move the Globe and Mail refers to as "brewing up support for sovereignty".

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
