Friday's Vehicle - Bomber Bash T-Bucket Burnout #1

Why are Canadians not allowed an open and honest dialogue on Palestine?

It is a sad situation when opinion and freedom of expression is suppressed in Canada by a government that has been bought and paid for by a middle eastern country.

Yes fellow Canadians if you have an opposing view on the Palestinian conflict you will be accused by your government of either being a supporter of terrorism or of being anti-Semitic. First and foremost we are not permitted to hear both sides of the issue. News agencies in Canada are in fear of retribution from the Conservative government for being in conflict with them and fail to report on both sides of the issue.

Yes Canada we are oppressed. Why do we have to rely on bloggers to speak out against the inequalities of the Conservatives?

Is Canada's media bought and paid for by the Conservatives, are the Conservatives bought and paid for by Israel? My answer here is I believe so. If Palestinians and the Arab World spent the money to lobby Canada and America as Israel has what would the result be???

I am prepared to defend my beliefs with anyone, including the High Court of Canada, my question is.... are the Conservatives prepared to open their books?

Oh Dear, Oh Dear, Jim Flaherty has phuked up again

Yes Canada the budget officer Kevin Page who has failed to be wrong year in and year out tells us Jim "Bimbo" Flaherty is a screw up..... but then everyone in Ontario knew that.

A report by the parliamentary budget officer (PBO) on Thursday assessed Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's revised budget outlook on November 13, which projected federal budget deficits for this year and the following three years that were on average C$5.8 billion bigger than the government estimated in its March budget.

What is truly amazing about Kevin Page is that despite the refusal of the Conservatives to provide him with the information he continually comes up with more accurate figures than the "Idiot Minister of Finance"

The question is.... "Why do the Conservatives insist on deceiving Canadians"?

7% this is good for aging to live by

7% Written by a 90 year old

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio .

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short – enjoy it.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye But don't worry; God never blinks.

16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19.. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have not what you need

42. The best is yet to come...

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Its estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'.

I'm in the 7%. Friends are the family that we choose.

Thanks Marty

Psy's 'Gangnam Style,' explained

At the Video Music Awards in September 2012, millions of viewers were introduced to Psy, the South Korean rapper whose video, 'Gangnam Style,' took the world by storm.
The video climbed to 100 million views in 51 days — faster than Justin Bieber's "Baby" and Rebecca Black's "Friday,"
It's garnered over 117 million views since it was posted on July 15, and Psy, a.k.a. Park Jae Sung, became the first Korean artist to be invited to the VMAs since Rain performed in 2005, according to the Korea Times.

What do the lyrics of the song mean, and what's the story behind Psy's trademark dance move?

WHAT DOES 'GANGNAM STYLE' MEAN?Gangnam is a wealthy neighborhood in the South Korean city of Seoul where young people go to party. In the song, Psy describes the kind of guy he is and the kind of girl he wants, painting caricatures of the ostentatious culture of people who hang out in Gangnam.
As The Atlantic pointed out in an in-depth article last month, behind the flashy costumes and killer dance moves in Psy's video, there's a subtle commentary on class in South Korea.
WHAT DOES THE CHORUS, 'OPPAN GANGNAM STYLE,' MEAN?It roughly means something like 'Your man has Gangnam Style.' 'Oppa,' which literally means 'older brother,' is an affectionate term girls use to address older guy friends or a boyfriend. It can also be used as a first-person pronoun, as PSY does here — in this case, he's telling a woman that he has Gangnam style.
WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH HIS SIGNATURE DANCE?"It's a horse-riding dance," PSY explained in an interview. "So there is an invisible horse, and you're on it." (In the video, Psy first does the dance in the middle of a posh-looking stable.)
The singer manages to turn an activity typically associated with the wealthy into a hilarious, arm-flapping dance move.
HOW DO YOU SAY 'PSY?'It's pronounced like 'sigh,' short for 'psycho.'
WHAT'S NEXT FOR PSY?He signed with Schoolboy Records, the label of Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Brown, so we may soon be seeing more of him stateside.

Thursday's Vehicle

Rob "Chris Farley " Ford fails to acknowledge the true problem

Rob Ford gave a concession speech today but failed to acknowledge the true facts behind his being found guilty of "conflict of interest". It had nothing to do with his love of football and the support of underprivileged children, it had everything to do with his arrogance and refusal to admit his mistake.

He still fails to admit his mistakes. I lose more and more respect for him every time he opens his mouth, to add to the problem is his brother also shows his ignorance of the issue.

Rob Ford had the opportunity to make the issue go away. Rob Ford refused to make the issue go away..... Rob Ford did this to Rob Ford.

Although he was not found guilty of influence peddling Rob Ford did use his position to influence others to support his football team.... a technicality .... maybe ... but still a conflict.

Say Merry Christmas - Vocal Carrie Rinderer and the American Christian L...

G'Morning Everyone .................. I, like many of my friends are church absentees but that doesn't mean we don't believe what this and other country's like ours have believed and followed since their founding. There is something to be said for "Tradition" especially with all the other crap being thrust upon the "Free World" (free for now anyway!!) - I personally started about a week ago with the "Merry Christmas" and will continue where ever I am because, as far as I know, this is my country and apparently founded on Christianity!!
All the best ........... Win & Ann Swinwood

Thanks Win.... I too am not an avid church goer but remain a believer in Christian values and traditions.

Thanks to Bernie C who also sent me this video today.

Senior dress code

SENIOR DRESS CODE Many of us 'Old Folks' (over 50) are quite confused today about how we should present ourselves. Feeling 'young', we try to conform to current fashions and present a youthful image.

Contrary to what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:
1. A nose ring and bifocals
2.. Spiked hair and bald spots
3. A pierced tongue and dentures
4. Miniskirts and support hose
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
6. Speedo's and cellulite
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
10. Bikinis and liver spots
11. Mini skirts and varicose veins
And, Most importantly
At some point you have to give up the 'DAISY DUKE' shorts

Thanks Heather

RMR: Rick's Rant - Lest We Forget

This is quite a story about ‘’another generation’’ which will be missed for all time, and the term ‘’till death do us part’’ is not always applicable.
What a gentle soul; no animosity towards anyone, including the generations of politicians who simply failed to provide this lovely woman with a definitive answer about her husband.
Lest we forget!

Cool person test

This little test is based on how cool you were in High School based on what crowd you ran with, what car you drove, type of gal you dated...etc. It's surprisingly accurate. You may want to send it to your friends to see if they've changed. Have some fun with it.

Great advice from Win - Support your local craft person and entrepreneur

Chistmas gifts

Hi Everyone ................. That recent email that did the rounds keeps popping into my head and honestly makes a lot of sense to me!! Instead of buying "Off shore Gifts" for those on your Christmas list perhaps we should think about supporting the little guy who lives in our communities or at least in our respective countries!!
Gifts like: Your local barber, beauty shop, car wash/detailing, flower shop, confectionery shop, bakery, locally canned/bottled fruits and vegetables, tickets to sporting events/stage plays/movie theatres, vacation trip or cruise using a local independent travel agency - and the list goes on and on , just give it some thought!!
Just saying !! ..................... Merry Christmas everyone - Win and Ann Swinwood 

Thanks Win.... a great idea

Tuesday's Vehicle - 1962 Studebaker Lark TV Ad With Mr. Ed

Toronto - the laughing stock of the World

Over the decades... yes Toronto it has been decades that Canadians have looked at you with disdain and with comedic admiration since you have given them a source of unlimited jokes.

And now you gave them the ultimate joke.... "Rob (Chris Farley) Ford"

For me it is a moment of mixed emotions.... as an Alderman Rob Ford was constantly under attack for his failure to use public funds to run his office... I was a supporter of Rob Ford ... and then....  He turned into Chris Farley with extreme arrogance ... given the opportunity to return funds that were deemed to be outside of the legal realm he refused to repay them and then did not abstain from a council vote against him..... OK so under the terms of office he was in conflict ... then he tries to plead ignorance of the "conflict of interest act"

Excuse me, how long has he been in office, as an Alderman and as Mayor?

He never read the act? Wake up people but if you as a citizen of Canada try to tell a judge you were not aware of the law .... do you really think a judge will believe you? If you do then you should be Mayor of Toronto.

I have a love hate relationship with Christmas

My hate relationship began with the me generation. The loss of the true meaning of Christmas gave way to the I want gang, which meant keeping up with the Joneses. Then I had grandchildren and the fun began.

I play Santa on the phone.... it is priceless .... the believers are so easy to get a rise out of...

Last night (Monday) was just one night in the many times I have played Santa.

Connor, our daughter Megans son, is or can be somewhat unruly at age 5 so Megan called me from swim class to tell me how good Connor was being and that, prior to going to class, she had told him Santa was watching and she would call Santa if he listened to the instructor .... 

As I disguised my voice and told Connor how impressed I was with his behavior he said with glee "Santa was watching Mommy" .... we had a short conversation where I asked what he wanted for Christmas and then I told him that Santa had to go feed the reindeer and I rang little bells for him to hear and asked him if he could hear my reindeer.... he said "Mommy, Santa has to feed the reindeer carrots" ..... I really had to contain my laughter and said goodbye..... Pat and I giggled like little kids after...

Senior Motel Moment

Last week, she checked into a motel on her 70th birthday and she was a bit lonely. She thought, "I'll call one of those men you see advertised in phone books for escorts and sensual massages." She looked through the phone book, found a full page ad for a guy calling himself Tender Tony – a very handsome man with assorted physical skills flexing in the photo.

He had all the right muscles in all the right places, thick wavy hair, long powerful legs, dazzling smile, six pack abs and she felt quite certain she could bounce a silver dollar off his well oiled bum....

She figured, what the heck, nobody will ever know. I'll give him a call.

"Good evening, ma'am, how may I help you?" (Oh my, he sounded sooo sexy!)

Afraid she would lose her nerve if she hesitated, she rushed right in, "Hi, I hear you give a great massage. I'd like you to come to my motel room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hot, and I want it now. Bring implements, toys, rubber, leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night - tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything and everything, I'm ready!! Now how does that sound?"

He said, "That sounds absolutely fantastic, but you need to press 9 for an outside line."

Thanks Shirley.... are you over the embarrassment yet?

Norman & the prostitute

Norman & the prostitute

Norman, an old retired sailor, puts on his old uniform and heads for the docks once more, for old times sake.
He engages a prostitute and takes her up to a room.

He's soon going at it as well as he can for a guy his age, but needing some reassurance, he asks, 'How am I doing?'

The prostitute replies, 'Well Norman, old sailor, you're doing about three knots.'
'Three knots?' he asks. ' What's that supposed to mean?'
She says, 'You're knot hard, you're knot in, and you're knot getting your money back.'
Thanks Shirley

A good one. I think that birds must look down on us and feel sorry for us that we don’t have wings to fly and see the world as they see it. And no that does not mean I am going to paraglide or whatever you call it in this life. Maybe in the next. Then on second thought..not in ANY life!!! thats why I dont have

Wont Stop - Sid Bhullar - anti-bullying video by 15 year old

Get over it Alberta

Seriously Alberta, let he who has not had something derogatory to say about the East stand and be counted and I'll show you the "Horses Ass" award winner.

We are Canadians, its what we do, in the end we put our arm around our fellow Canuck and embrace our differences. If you look deep down inside this story you will see that it is nothing more than a Harper government attempt to discredit anyone in opposition.... plain and simple it is a "Bushism".

If there is one prime example that Canadians don't give a damn for Harpers attempt to drive a wedge between East and West, it would be this years Grey Cup and how it exemplifies Canadians National Pride and Unity.

Trudeau's remarks aside, it is the Conservatives that want to stir the pot of discontent, one can liken it to the school bully who tries to get their circle of friends to attack their opponent by telling them "do you know what he said about you"? "He's not your friend"! "We should gang up on him"

I don't know of any "Alberta" jokes but as a former Quebecer living in Ontario I sure know "French" jokes and "Newfie" Jokes and just maybe a BC joke or two but in the World of humour there is nothing funny or entertaining about the other Provinces. That in itself speaks volumes about their lack of personality wouldn't you say.

If you truly want sarcasm I'll give you the ultimate smart ass remark "How long does it take for a Conservative to get the insult"? ......answer "Two Years" .... the statement was made in 2010 and the Conservatives just got it.

If people are talking about you, whether good or bad, the bottom line is that you are being noticed and they are either envious of you or fear you..... it is always better to be envied.

Don't Let Harper Divide Our Canada

Lost Senior Citizen

Funny Tale of a Lost Senior Citizen

When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out. I stopped and asked him what was wrong.
He told me, 'I have a 22 year old wife at home. She rubs my back every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee.'
I continued, 'Well, then why are you crying?'
He added, 'She makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favourite biscuits, cleans the house and then watches sports TV with me for the rest of the afternoon.'
I said, 'Well, why are you crying?'
He said, 'For dinner she makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favourite dessert and then we cuddle until the small hours.'
I inquired, 'Well then, why in the world would you be crying?'
He replied, 'I can't remember where I live.'

The child and his Mother 
A curious child asked his mother: “Mommy, why are some of your hairs turning grey?”
The mother tried to use this occasion to teach her child: “It is because of you, dear. Every bad action of yours will turn one of my hairs grey!”
The child replied innocently: “Now I know why grandmother has only grey hairs on her head.”
Thanks Joe Y..... what I don't understand is that we have the technical knowledge to protect our most vulnerable citizens, seniors, but our government considers us disposable ... we are a financial burden to the Conservatives ultimate plan to destroy the Canada we know and love.

This may become the #1 Christmas song this year!!!

Wheelchair-Bound Prague Boy Fulfills Dream Of Scoring Touchdown

Your First Christmas card.

Cleverly done!!!
Twas the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.
Why the PC (politically correct) Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
not Happy Holiday!
Please, all Christians join together and
wish everyone you meet
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
Thanks Ellen/Sam
