Monday's Vehicle - Antique 1910 Reo Truck

A good reason "not to buy" Made in China Products

Your Conservative government puts this.....

Above human rights when dealing with China

The above story may come out of the US but it has a profound affect on how Canada is viewed by the World for sleeping with abusers.

Genecide - Conservative Style

Yes Canada your Conservative government is so deep in the pocket of industry that they are selling out Canadians, the environment and our aboriginals......

Yet another communist destruction of Canadian territory and the Harper Eco-Nazi's are suppressing our aboriginal peoples so that the communists can destroy the environment as they have at home in China.

The oppression of Canada's aboriginals and the destruction of their treaty rights is bordering on criminal.

Our country flourished and was well respected around the World prior to this discusting government selling us out to the highest bidder and turning Canada into a destroyer of peace and stabiliity in the World.

Makes one wonder how many "temporary" Chinese workers will be brought in to Canada to be used and abused in these mines.
Both Harper and Kenney have turned a blind eye to the mines in BC
Ottawa - RSL Chief Les Harper with Theresa Spence . He delivered a sacred eagle feather to her that was used 22 years ago to kill meech lake accord by his older brother Elijah Harper.......pic taken Dec 28.12 — with Melvina Charlette.
Clean water is essential to all forms of life, animal, vegetable and human. For several decades Canadians have been trying to clean the waters that industry destroyed and now the Harper government wants to set us back in time to a day when we were ignorant of the destruction that man was causing to our World.
Save the rivers and lakes for your children and grandchildren

How to fix the economy

Dear Mr. Harper,

Please find below our suggestion for fixing Canada 's economy.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.

Pay them 1 million dollars each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed

2) They MUST buy a new car.
Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed

4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
Crime rate fixed

5) They MUST buy $50 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
And there's your money back in duty/tax etc

It can't get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.

How about putting the very elderly pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.
That way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks. They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.

Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.

Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior could have a PC, a TV, radio and daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay $300.00 per week and with little hope of ever getting out.

More points of contention: [Think about this...]

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Alberta years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the barn?

And, they even tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 125,000 illegal immigrants wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
Think about this .. If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone --
It is time grumpy old folk of Canada spoke up!
Thanks Randy..... works for me.... it would have been better than the 52 billion he paid to his supporters in industry that did nothing for the economy overall.

Buh-Bye 2012--

Heather McKeown-JFK inflight

I'd like to say, “It was nice knowing you!”
when I think of the year that ends in a two.
Yet the days were quite stressful for me and for you
so methinks I'll end off with a shot for the flu.
At least it's a free one and Rite Aid will do it
but maybe I'll just say, “It hurts so just screw it!”

The year started off with a kiss and a hug
so I guess I won't sweep it all under the rug.
When I stop to consider the joy that I've had
I can't say that all of 2-12 was too bad.

There were fewer delays
and I got a new hip
My bill's---mostly paid
so I shouldn't feel gypped.

The family's thriving
my neighbors are giving
Nobody's conniving
and I am still living!

The crashpad is filled
with the best of the best
My trips are MY will
and my crews full of zest.

The airports have food
except BTV
Most folks aren't too rude
at least, not to me.

I had one bad no show
(I took the wrong bus)
This filled me with woe
and caused quite a fuss.

The rest of the year
I enjoyed very much
And as '13 draws near
I feel more in touch
with feelings of happiness
joy and good health
That I'll stay optimistic
in spite of myself.

Here's hoping you all....
have a wonderful Eve....
and when the ball drops....
and 2-12 takes its leave
Your next year is filled...
with great love and good vibes...
for tomorrow's the first day
of the rest of our lives!


Thanks Heather

Sunday's Vehicle - 50ft. 1960 Chris Craft Constellation

A touch of Irish humour

Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place.

Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey".

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I found one."

> > ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and says to the first man he meets, "Do you want to go to heaven?"

The man said, "I do Father."

The priest said, "Then stand over there against the wall."

Then the priest asked the second man, "Do you want to got to heaven?"

"Certainly, Father," was the man's reply. "Then stand over there against the wall," said the priest.

Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and said, "Do you want to go to heaven?

O'Toole said, "No, I don't Father. "

The priest said, "I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?"

O'Toole said, "Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now."

> > ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

O'Toole worked in the lumber yard for twenty years and all that time he'd been stealing the wood and selling it. At last his conscience began to bother him and he went to confession to repent.

"Father, it's 15 years since my last confession, and I've been stealing wood from the lumber yard all those years," he told the priest.

"I understand my son," says the priest. "Can you make a Novena?"

O'Toole said, "Father, if you have the plans, I've got the lumber."

> > ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Paddy was in New York He was patiently waiting, and watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the flow of traffic and shouted, "Okay pedestrians". Then he'd allow the traffic to pass. He'd done this several times, and Paddy still stood on the sidewalk.

After the cop had shouted "Pedestrians" for the tenth time, Paddy went over to him and said, "Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?"

> > +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend Finney.

"Did you see the paper?" asked Gallagher. "They say I died!!"

"Yes, I saw it!" replied Finney. "Where are ye callin' from?"

> > +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"

"Just water," says the priest.

The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"

The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"

> > ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Walking into the bar, Mike said to Charlie the bartender, "Pour me a stiff one - just had another fight with the little woman."

Oh yeah?"said Charlie "And how did this one end?"

"When it was over," Mike replied, "she came to me on her hands and knees.

"Really," said Charles, "now that's a switch! What did she say?"

She said, "Come out from under the bed, you little chicken shit"

Thanks Joe J.

Are you a Federal Liberal, a Federal Conservative or an Alberta PC

Here is a little test that will help you decide.

The answer can be found by posing the following question:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Indian with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges at you.

You are carrying a Colt .45 Automatic, and you are an expert shot.

You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

What do you do?

> > ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Federal Liberal's Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor! Or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the Colt have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to
> > society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?

Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behaviour. This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.

> > ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Federal Conservative's Answer:


> > ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alberta Progressive Conservative's Answer:


Daughter: " Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Point Shells ? "

Son: " Way to gitt - r - dun Pop! Can I shoot the next one! "

Wife: " You ain't taking that to the taxidermist! "

Saturday's Vehicle - 1963 Fairlane Lightning Bolt

Floyd Garrett had one of these in his Museum when we visited Dollywood. While there they were rotating the vehicles and pushed the Lightening out to the parking lot by hand.

When they decided to bring the old lady back in they fired her up ..... she barked so loud she set the car alarms off in the parking lot.

If you visit Dollywood the Garrett Muscle Car Museum in Sevierville is a must see, not just for the muscle cars but for the memorabillia as well. Check out his site

Thursday snowstorm.

I guess you heard from the news that we got hit with a big snowstorm in Quebec. Here are a few pictures from my place in the country taken at about 3:30PM. Knee deep in most of the driveway. It stopped snowing around 7:30PM.
The storm dumped 43cm on Montreal which beat the old 1969 record of 39cm. Im glad we got back from my son Kevin's pace in Brossard on Wednsday and am also glad not to be anywhere near Montreal.
Thanks Ivan.... better you than us LOL .... and you couldn't go outside to take them???



These guys are good but Sam and I were better LOL.He would throw me over his back and under his legs

Thanks Ellen/Sam

Now this is dancing ;
Usually the female is featured, but here the young man
steals the show - his legs are like liquid magic. And, bless her heart, she lets him shine.
He's 17 and she's only 15. But together, they won the
2012 Junior Division National Carolina Shag
Dancing Championships.
They're dancing to Joe Turner's "Flip, Flop and Fly."

Recipe for the Perfect Cuppa....

Experts tell us that the best way to make a perfect cup of tea is to agitate the bag.

So, every morning I shout :

'Two sugars, fat arse!'

Friday's Vehicle - 1960 Pontiac Laurentian - 474 Pontiac !


Thanks Normand


I think you are correct Normand,I had forgotten about Grandmother Hollingdrake. Maybe if I copy George Holingdrake with this missive he can fill in the blank. I think the Grandmother lived in the apartment between Hilda's and the Grocery store at ground level and Hilda and Neville(Brereton) lived in the apt. above the Grandmother. George what say you? John
Thanks Normand and John
