New Brunswick to reduce workforce by 4500.

New Brunswick is going to reduce its government work force by 4500. This will mainly be done through attrition, done through retirement. I imagine the first few years, the government will see no direct benefit, as severance packages and the such will negate any budgetary help. They will re hire 3000 of the total, leaving 1500 positions forever vacant.

The Federal Government, is on a whim to eliminate 21000 approx jobs. The military civilian support jobs will be hit, as well as in other departments. The CBC will be laying off approximately 450 employees in order to deal with their budget losses.

The IMF warned about doing this, as broadcast on the news, a day ago. They worry that if every country reduces budgetary spending too fast, that the world could go back into a recession again. Spain had announced budgetary spending cuts as well. As the world struggles to deal with deficits and debt loads, it means less spending out in the economy. Less money to go to keep it humming along. This would be against the FDR principles. Franklin D Roosevelt was one of my favorite presidents. He helped the United States struggle against a severe depression, and brought back the country to strength and stability. He created jobs, and helped to ignite the economy. What todays governments are doing, are reducing jobs.

With the price of gasoline headed to a 141 in Canada, this is another high peak. Maybe not a record, but it is getting there. They say the refining capacity is low. This is what is creating the problem. If this is what is creating the problem, the United States, or Canada, should create more "Refining Capacity" and end this problem once and for all.

This will definitely have an effect on truck sales, and overall spending. Less money to be spent on goods and services. Create some "Refining Capacity" somewhere, in the world.

The economy is in a teetering balance. It seemed to be going ahead for awhile, with the USA creating over 200 000 jobs in the last month or so. We hope it can continue, to foster economic stability followed by growth. What we need is companies to expand their product lines, their ingenuity, to create work. It is up to small business to step up to the plate, and create, expand, grow bigger, to create jobs. Grow bigger. That is the bottom line!

Have a good afternoon, till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
