When things go backwards in your life for a bit in time.

Things seem to be going backwards for allot of us in this day and age. We see pension plans, especially here in New Brunswick going from Defined Benefit to some sort of an investment benefit. These defined benefit pensions used to be guaranteed depending on your time worked and your age that you left the workforce. These pensions were for government workers, teachers, and energy workers, for instance. Now, they say there is not enough money in the till. So, the benefits will be reduced somewhat when people retire and take out their pensions. It may mean people working longer, for to try to keep up their pensions to levels they can comfortable retire with. And then if the stock market does not perform, then it is all "kakapooh". The politicians pensions probably will not be affected at all. Go figure.

And then the Union says we are looking at the plans, and the pensioners will just have to accept it. Well, seems like allot of other people other than the union are opposed to the plan.
Taxes are going up! We are going, backwards!

Will someone take control of the shift stick and put it in high gear again! Get it out of reverse! I am tired of going, backwards...

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…
