Pause Ponder and Pissing Down Rain


You know whenever I see something about rain I think of that old joke...

Guy 1: "Hey it's raining cats and dogs out there."
Guy 2: "Be careful not to step in a poodle."

Well, maybe not always. And maybe that's just as well.

Ok, enough with the jokes, let's see what we've got.

Jimmy takes his OCD to a whole new level.

Wow, wet was he thinking?


Now Moooooog's been a winner too many times to count. He's one funny fella. So it's nice to see he's joined by newcomer Georgina with a pun after my own heart. Congratulations you guys. You both be hangin' with the dufus. Yippee!

Co-win or not, it's good to be the king.

Does Georgina need my phone number? I'm assuming we need to..you know..congratulate each other and stuff.

Ha! Co-winners, eh? I guess I have to say congrats to Mooooog35 for the umpteenth time (no, I'm not bitter, hee hee) and a huge congrat to Georgina!

I knew she had the winning caption! It made me snort! And yes, I'm still cleaning out DDP from my keyboard.

*smile*

Oh and many thanks for the lovely shout-out! You're too good to me Sir Nomesters!

Quirks: Good luck with that DDP on the keyboard. And the shout out? You're worth it.

Congrats to Moooooog and Georgina! Both great captions!

"...screwing-in-the-lightbulb" Ha, ha! I never really looked it at that way.

And congrats to the honourable mentions as well!

00dozo: Me either, but I'm gonna use it now.

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.
