Sunday Funnies

In Canada last week, editorial cartoonists had a field day with the problems facing Opposition Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff. He and his Quebec lieutenant had a falling out over who would run in one of the provincial ridings in the next election. The lieutenant resigned and allegations were made the leader was surrounding himself with 20-something political tykes from Toronto. Party members were questioning Ignatieff's leadership abilities.

Meanwhile, in the United States a couple of infamous politicians were releasing books last week and relations between America and Iran were definitely heating up in the wake of Iranian President Iamanutjob's appearance at the United Nations and rumours Iran was building nuclear weapons.

Imagine. Blago with a book deal. The little pip must be out of money. Look at the bright side Blago. It wasn't your money to begin with. As far as Obama and his "toughness" are concerned, I have a nine year old granddaughter that could stare him down. Ooooooh. Tough!

Wow, it appears that the publishers are a bit more lenient than they are here in the US. Although I don't know a thing about Canadian politics, I find it these cartoons very interesting. I particularly like #3.

Don: Haha, I guess you and the last cartoonist have the same view, hence the pillow. (Hey, nice review at Stumble. Thanks, man.)

Me-Me: Some of them cut close to the bone don't they.

Twittercide is Painless

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
