Canada Day today!

Happy Canada Day to everyone today! A country that is bilingual, but that is also multicultural, has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a French then English colony.

As compared to American history, we did not have the huge revolutionary war, or the civil war as our cousins to the south of us can compare. We evolved probably from them, but within a British style government framework.

I would like to see Canada have an elected senate. We have an appointed one. Our Prime Minister and his government works with a majority in the House of Commons. They form policy and vote on bills versus the opposition which most of the time tears them down, but can never truly defeat a bill unless a minority government stands.

I always found our country was always a little more leaning to the left. We seem to leave people do their own thing, and not let the majority view or minority view force others into going a certain way. I think that is the way it should be, also. Leave people live the way they want to live, and keep the government in only providing services to its people- equally in part- health care, police forces, ect.

This is todays view of Canada. Or at least my view. You be who you want to be, in this land of ours. Just do not force your opinions on anyone else...  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…
