Dona Nobis Pacem - Blog Blast For Peace


Today is Blog Blast for Peace Day. Bloggers all over the world are addressing this issue in various ways. It's a serious subject. The lack of peace in various parts of the world has led to strife, hunger,  suppression, persecution and even death. 

As we think about this today, I hope you won't mind if I inject a little humour into the proceedings. After all, this is a humour blog for the most part. Nevertheless the observance of today and it's key issue is very, very important. For now, though, I hope I at least make you smile...

I suspect we're like two peas in a pod, Indigo. Peace, my friend.

You know, some might feel you treated the topic a little lightly however they would be among those who have no idea how hard it is for you to have peas plastered all over your blog. I wish you peace with no peas, mon ami. :-)

It was a real challenge Nicky but I decided to give peas a chance.

There's always room for peas humor, although in general I say peas are GACK. But I make allowance on Blog Blast Day because somehow, somewhere, someone actually likes peas.

Peace to you and yours on this and every day.

You and me both, Travis. Any other day I'd hate peas. But I decided to make an exception.

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik

The Polka Dot Door

A long time ago, when I was 22, my first child was born.  That kid grew up on a little Canadian kid's show called Polka Dot Door, produced by the TV Ontario network.  And Dad, more often than not, sat through those shows with his little one. Nine or so years later when a brother, and a year after that when a sister came along number one son was moving on to Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazzard.  But there was a nice overlap where his siblings picked up where he had left off with Polka Dot Door.  And Dad was right there to welcome them. So you're looking at a Polka Dot Door veteran.  The show began in 1971 and ran to 1993.  I didn't watch the full run but I did get in my fair share.  The formula was pretty simple.  A young male and female host, which seemed to change every week, sang songs, told stories, made crafts and generally did their best stimulate little brains.  The show opened as follows...
