Agendas

Seeing that picture of that tiny boy drowned upon the beach is upsetting. Hearing the Prime Minister use it as a reason to increase war efforts? Disgusting!

Is there no one in this world without an agenda? Must everything someone does have an ulterior motive?

We're all human beings. Maybe some are kinder, more considerate, and more empathic than others, but we're still human.

It's things like this that make me worry for the future of the planet. How can we have voted in a leader so devoid of humanity?

Canada has been long known as the country that helps out. We provide aid. We help the bullied fight back. Under his rule, our entire reputation is crumbling along with our oil-based economy.

If we're going to make a significant change to our constitution, it should be to allow impeachment.

Thankfully, I'm not a public service employee.

Thoroughly disgusted,

  1. Well said. At least we can vote! I'm disgusted too. I've been angry and disgusted for 4 years since this crisis started and everyone just stood around and watched. I can only hope we finally get rid of him and his poor excuses for ministers.

  2. I think we should have had an election when he was found "in contempt of parliament". No sitting minister, let alone the Prime Minister should be allowed to stay in his seat after that.

  3. I'm ashamed to admit that when he first ran, I voted for him. His economics sounded correct and his interest in defense kept my then husband in work as well as many of my friends and their spouses. I regret it now. I didn't vote for him in the last election though and I definitely won't in this one.

  4. They should be forced to respect the constitution, not try to change it unless there is an outcry from the public about something that makes sense like gay marriage rights. There should also be a level of reasonable lies and once they pass that, they lose the privilege of being our leader.

  5. Don't be ashamed. First of all, you voted. Second of all you were making what you thought was a responsible choice at the time. Now you know better and hopefully we can make a change. :)

  6. I hope so! The Cons sure are doing a lot of idiotic things lately... I mean more than usual. Peeing in a mug? Pictures with boy scouts? The oil-based economy? Duffy? All a bunch of stupidity and morally wrong things.

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again. 
R.I.P. #10.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
