No favorites this week. They're all good. :)

Of course, I still need a translator for the Canadian ones ;).

I can always depend on your appreciation of editorial cartoons. Thanks U.P.!

These were all very good. I even understood them!

If that's supposed to be Rory McIlroy, it really doesn't looks anything like him. But I do remember his up and commence at the (British) Open as an amateur. I kinda felt he would do well, so he deserves his kudos.

I remember hearing of the Canadian polymer cash last year. And just when the world thought our money didn't look funny enough (or ligitimate for that matter), we have to go and make it feel and well, that it can actually 'bounce'? Heh, heh.

Canadian self-flaggelation.: I'm so proud (?!?!?) Okay - I'm, sorry for that one.

Hey, if I understand them, Linda, then anyone can.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, it doesn't look much like him but I had to include the likeness of Rory. Watching him last weekend was amazing.

And I guess very soon Canadians won't have money to burn. Although I'm not too sure about using silly putty as a national currency.

I like the Clarence Clemons cartoon best. RIP.

Ah yes, I'm with Boom Boom RIP Mr. Clemons.

And don't worry, the Canadians still look perfect! We have short memories. heh heh

He really was essential to defining the E Street Band's unique sound wasn't he?

Oh, that's good, Quirks. So you'll keep coming around?

Gosh my back's in an awful mess after all that self-flagellation business.

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.
