Sunday Funnies

In Canada last week there were 4 by-elections held. The governing Conservatives won two seats, the Bloc Quebecois one and the New Democratic Party one. Michael Ignatieff's Liberals, who a month ago were itching to bring down the government and force a general election, came up empty. Meanwhile, the debacle of long line ups and short supplies of H1N1 vaccines continued apace both north and south of the border. And finally, there would seem to be a difference of opinion out there respecting the economic recovery in America.

Ha! Great funnies. That last one was a good one.

Our economy is looking for a good reanimation.

Quirks: Re-animation? Cartoons? ha,ha,ha
Send a search party... and be sure they've got some H1N1 vaccines with 'em!

Cat Lady: That pretty much sums it up!

That old lady standing in line isn't far from the truth from what I hear. I once had a boss about like the doc in the last cartoon. He didn't care if you had pneumonia and a 103 degree fever. You'd better be at work or else...he died at 42.

Oh, I love that last one.

John: That's actually a Canadian cartoonist from the Ottawa Citizen. He's got a great handle on political and wold events and is usually very, very funny.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

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.
