Have to Plan a Vacation.

I have to plan a vacation. It is, actually, sad to leave such a beautiful place in the summer months. The Bay of Chaleur, one of the most beautiful bays in the world...

Well, I will probably head to 1. Maine, Boston  or 2. Quebec, Levi, Jardin de Metis. For approximately a week or so.

Difficult decision to make. The Old Orchard beach, Portland, the outlet stores, and then the lovely panoramic New England seacoast. Or, the belle ambiance of the French Quebec atmosphere. The old city, and all of its cobble streets, its old buildings rich in history and such.

The only thing going for Maine right now, is that I never ventured further than Calais Maine. I went through St Stephen, just to get across the boarder one time. This was, indeed, the time when you just had to say hello to your boarder crossing guard. The good, ole, days.

Sadly enough, I think the episode of the armored car employee who shot his own employees, is a lesson for all of this high tech gadgetry. It was one from the inside, that robbed the armored car and did terrible damage to families who lost their loved ones.

Just think for a minute. This was, one from the inside that did the job. How can, anyone, prevent that. How? It is very hard to do.

Thus, the reason for the passports, scans at the airport, ect, is just a little maybe over done? I do agree with the Passports. They do show you are in a country for such and such a time, and reputable. Sure, I am in favor of x rays of the luggage and such. I am in favor of no fluids over a certain quantity, or none at all, in carry on luggage. But, have we gone overboard, in security checks. Body scans at the airport? I know this stopped me from taking the plane more often that what I could have. We all know it is a hassle.

I remember when I had to take off my shoes at the airport going to the USA. I was actually, not alright with that, but it did create a feeling of discomfort and humility. I lived in Canada all my life. But, I had to get on the plane to get where I was going. Why don't they just issue us shoes at the ticket counter ( like in a bowling alley), and put them on. You put your shoes in your luggage. You then only take off your bowling shoes once you get off the plane at your destination...

You are judged guilty, before even getting to the air planes doors. We all know this is the bare facts.

Is this the world we must live in? There must be better ways around this, as we cannot prevent no matter how hard we try, everything. What are we trying to prevent these days, everything?

I think the above example, goes to show that. They could have had security up the ying yang, but when one of their own jumps off the wagon, what can you do... It has more to do, with society as a whole. Finding out why people do these kind of terrible things. We need to make sure everyone feels, like a part of society.  Inclusion is the key. 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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
