Thursday's Ride - 1952 MG TD Roadster

Has the bigotry and misogynistic views of the CPC caught up to them???

South Surrey-White Rock has been held by Progressive Conservatives, Reform, the Canadian Alliance, and the ‘Harper’ Conservatives since 1972, although electoral boundaries and the riding name have changed several times.  The riding was cited in ‘unite-the-right’ politics to justify the PC-CA merger schemed by Stephen Harper and Peter MacKay which had little affect other than to remove the Progressive Conservative party from the ballot, Tory loyalists in the Progressive Canadian Party insist.

The South Surrey-White Rock by-election was called when former Conservative Party star candidate Dianne Watts left the BC seat after near defeat in 2015 as ‘new’ Conservative support began to collapse and only two years as an MP to pursue a career in provincial politics.

“South Surrey-White Rock was one of the safest of safe seats in Canada.” Hueglin said, “That’s gone.”

By-Elections show 'new' Conservative Party unelectable, PC Party Leader says.

Moving to the right

More CBC strangeness...Richard Zussman, who was the Legislative Reporter for CBC in BC, was just fired for writing a book about the fall of the Christy Clark government and the rise of the NDP. Guess Zussman was not enough of a sycophant to suit the CBC powers that be...unlike the previous CBC Leg reporter, who was married to a Christy Clark aide or some of the other network reporters who seem to be more publicists for the BC(not)Liberals rather than journalists.

Your Duck is Dead

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary 
Surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet 
Pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's 
 After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and 
Sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has 
Passed away." 
 The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?" 
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the 
"How can you be so sure?" she protested.. "I mean 
You haven't done any testing on him or anything. 
He might just be in a coma or something." 
 The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the 
Room. He returned a few minutes later with a black 
Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on 
In amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his 
Front paws on the examination table and sniffed the 
Duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the 
Vet with sad eyes and shook his head. 
 The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out 
Of the room. A few minutes later he returned with 
A cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately 
Sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back 
On its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and 
Strolled out of the room. 
The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, 
But as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, 
A dead duck." 
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys 
And produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.. 
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" 
She cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"  
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my 
Word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the 
Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150." 
You know the drill  ... If you're smiling, you must pass it 
On, give someone else a smile too! Share the laughter.... 

Thanks Randy


I thought this would motivate everyone to start on their Christmas baking sooner than later! Enjoy! Once again this year, I've had requests for my Christmas Rum Cake recipe so here goes:
(Please keep in your files for use in years to come!)
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Powder 
1 cup Water
1 tsp. Salt
1 cup Brown Sugar and Lemon Juice
4 Large Eggs
Nuts (the kind you like)
1 Bottle Rum (Sample the Rum to check quality.)
2 cups Dried Fruit
Take a large bowl; check the Rum again to be sure it is of the highest quality. Repeat.
Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.
At this point, it is best to make sure the Rum is still OK. Try another cup just in case.
Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck iin the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the Rum to test for tonsisticity.
Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the Rum.
Now shift the lemon ice strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 s and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner.
Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the Rum and wipe the counter with the cat.
Cherry Mristmas

Friday's Ride - 1952 Pontiac Chieftain Deluxe

The Voice 2017 Chloe Kohanski - Top 10: "Call Me"


An old lady went into a bar in Tucson AZ, and saw a cowboy with his feet propped upon a table.
He had the biggest boots she'd ever seen. The old woman asked the man if it's true what they say about men with big feet being well endowed.
The man grinned and said, 'Sure is, little lady. Why don't you come to my apartment and let me prove it to you?'
The old woman considered she might never get an offer like this again and was curious to find out for herself, so she spent the night with him.
The next morning she handed him a $100 bill.Blushing, he said, 'Well, thank you, I'm really flattered. Nobody has ever paid me for my 'services' before!''Don't be flattered' she replied...
'Take the money and buy yourself some boots that fit...'

Thursday's Ride - 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible

From News and Guts

A new poll out today from CNN finds only 29% of American approve of the GOP tax bill. Almost two-thirds said it would benefit the wealthy most. While Congress haggles over the bill in conference, we were reminded of a different time. A friend of this page sent us a photo from the FDR Memorial in Washington, D.C. Roosevelt made the remarks at his second inaugural in January, 1937.
