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.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…
