Obituary of Constance Sincennes 1957

WW II : RARE COLOR FILM : SAIPAN AND MARIANAS

Does anyone know what this is????


I have been trying to find out what this document is for. It was issue to my grandmother in 1918 and has her as a former resident in Montmagny Quebec where she and a sister had been sent to live with relatives after the death of her father.


The other addresses are in Verdun with the latter, 251 River St., where my mother once lived sometime after 1922.


The back of the document references my great grandfather as a contact. This is quite interesting because at this point in his life he had already left my great grandmother and married a young British girl of 21 years in 1910, he was fifty at the time. What he failed to do was divorce my great grandmother.


I am trying to find out what the purpose of the document was and why she had to carry it with her at all times.


Please comment or send an email to the address on the header.

Mexican Day

Bacon Tree

Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert after crossing into the United States , wandering aimlessly and starving. They are about to just lie down and wait for death, when all of a sudden Luis says:

"Hey Pepe, do you smell what I smell.   Ees bacon, I theenk."

"Is, Luis, eet sure smell like bacon. "

With renewed hope they struggle up the next sand dune, & there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon.

There's raw bacon, there's fried bacon, back bacon, double smoked bacon, every imaginable kind of cured pork.

"Pepe, Pepe, we ees saved!  Ees a bacon tree!"

"Luis, maybe ees a meerage?  We ees in the desert don't  forget."

"Pepe, since when deed you ever hear of  a meerage that smell like bacon? Ees no meerage, ees a bacon tree!"

With that, Luis staggers towards the tree.  He gets to within 5 metres, Pepe crawling close behind, when suddenly a machine gun opens up, and Luis drops like a wet sock.  Mortally wounded, he warns Pepe with his dying breath:

"Pepe, go back man, you was right, ees not a bacon tree!"

"Luis, Luis miamigo, what ees it? "

"Pepe ees not a bacon tree.  Ees...


Ees....
 
Ees...


Ees...


Ees...

Ees...


Ees.... a ham bush."

Pension Changes

I have suddenly found myself in the awkward position of having to agree with Harper for the first and last time. One must remember though that this is the first and likely the last time he will have a somewhat intelligent plan...... raise the age limit on pensions.


If and when they do introduce the the bill in the house I hope they have addressed all possible scenarios. 


- First is want. I did not apply for my pension until just prior to my 67th birthday. Why? because I was not forced to retire nor did I want to.


- Then need. Is the applicant in poor health and can no longer be effective in the workplace.


- Abolish the early retirement clause except for those who are in need. The early retirement payout eats up the principal in the CPP fund, especially when the economy tanks and interest rates are low.


When my grandfather retired and applied for his Canada Pension the age requirement was 70. In those days the government had a clause for early retirement at age 65 for those who were unable to work until age 70. In the case of my grandmother, she fell into the latter category. she was required to fill a "means test" form to show why she required an early pension.


Of course times were different back then, it was common for parents to either move in with their children or for one of the children to take over the family home and care for mom and dad. Today kids are too quick to put their parents in a home. Yes life today is moving faster and parents have more on their plate but that my friends is their own doing. They covet their neighbors and try to keep up with them. They put the kids in organized sports, music, dance or other group activities then run all over hell's creation to drop off the the little critters.


My kids were lucky, nanny and grandpa lived with us, they still went to cubs or brownies and played sports but they also had their grandparents at the house to care for them after school and in the summer. To teach them cribbage or to pretend dance and other silly nanny and gramps games.


The state of the OAS fund is not as bad as this government makes it out to be, the problem is today's interest rates are the lowest in history and the principal in the fund is being eaten up.


To compound this problem the Conservatives set up a department to administer the OAS fund however the department has nothing to do at this time and is costing taxpayers millions of dollars each year while they sit around twiddling their thumbs. And no they are not on the chopping block in the upcoming cutbacks.

Jack Daniels Fishing Story

With the extra time on my hands, I tend to spend more of it fishing than anything else. I went fishing this morning but after a short time I ran out of worms.

Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. Frogs are good bass bait. 

Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.

Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit. So, I grabbed my bottle of
Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. His eyes rolled back, he went limp. I released him into the lake without incident and carried on fishing using the frog.

A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot. It was that snake, with two more frogs. 

Thanks Margaret

Why the US was downgraded......

Another way to look at the US Budget!

 This is really well put, in terms the average person can understand…..


This rather brilliantly cuts thru all the political doublespeak we get...........

Food for thought..... This puts it into a much better perspective and is
the same for many countries in Europe ...

Why the U.S. was downgraded:

* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:

* Annual family income: $21,700
* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
* Total budget cuts: $385

Got It ?????

OK now Lesson # 2:
Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer
backup in your neighbourhood....and your home has sewage all the way up
to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do ......

Raise the ceilings, or pump out the shit?

I did NOT know this!!
Remember this the next time you have major surgery and need a blood transfusion!! This is good to know!!
MEDICAL RESEARCH
Australian Medical Association researchers have found
that patients needing blood transfusions may benefit
from receiving chicken blood
rather than human blood.
It tends to make the men cocky and the women lay better....
Just thought you'd like to know.

Feeling Melancholy

For the past few weeks I have been feeling very melancholy. I don't know if it is because we are in the winter season or because I am in the winter of my life.

For the first time in my life I have to take a daily medication for blood pressure. But that isn't why I'm feeling down after all age doesn't cause high blood pressure however 45 years of marriage can. But that's not it either.

Could it be the double eye surgery? Naw, I see better now. How about the biopsy I had on Wednesday? Naw, just a precaution. Maybe it is spending the morning putting eye drops in my eyes and changing the dressing on my chest. Nope that only gets a chuckle out of Pat and I.... All part of aging.

I still don't know why I was in a funk but then we watched American Idol tonight and I thought about when I was in grade one at Herbert Symonds in NDG. My teacher, Miss Pump (actually Miss Aire but I was only 6), sent me home with a note.... it read " Could you please ask Bobby not to sing in class.... he is putting everyone off tune....

Watching Idol put me in a good mood.... I thought " S#!T even I can sing better than that" ..... Ahhhh life is good.

Good ole Newfoundland boy wins a fishing boat in a raffle. He brings it home and his wife looks at him and says, "What the heck you gonna do with that? There ain't no water deep enough to float a boat within 75 miles of here."

He says, "I won it and I'm a gonna keep it."
      
Several days later, his brother comes over to visit. He sees the wife and asks where his brother is.
Pointing to the field behind the house, she tells him, "He's out there in his fishing boat."

The brother heads out behind the house and sees his brother sitting in the fishing boat in the middle of a big field holding a fishing rod over the side.  He yells out to him, "What the heck are you doing?"



His brother replies, "I'm fishin'. What the heck does it look like I'm a doing?"

His brother yells back, "It's people like you that give people from Newfoundland a bad name, making everybody think we're stupid.  If I could swim, I'd come out there and kick your ass!"

White Sport Coat and A Pink Carnation ...a must watch

I like the way this video is made.  At the bottom of the screen there are
2 buttons; reverse, pause, and play.  If you didn't read a page fast enough
you can go back, and pause it and take your time reading it.
If you grew up in the 50's you will enjoy this video.  If you didn't, you
should enjoy the history lesson.
This is one of the best 50's video's I've seen. You will enjoy this. But
only if you were in our generation or very close. . . .  And if you were not in this generation -- listen and eat your hearts out. It was the best of
times...

New way of STEALING...



ESPECIALLY LOOK AT SCENE THREE...

Be sure to read Scene 3. Quite interesting.

This is a new one. People sure stay busy
Trying to cheat us, don't they?

SCENE 1.
A friend went to the local gym and placed his belongings in the locker. After the workout and a shower, he came out, saw the locker open, and thought to himself, 'Funny, I thought I locked the locker...

Hmm, 'He dressed and just flipped the wallet to make sure all was in order.

Everything looked okay - all cards were in place...

A few weeks later his credit card bill came - a whooping bill of $14,000!

He called the credit card company and started yelling at them, saying that he did not make
the transactions.

Customer care personnel verified that there was no mistake in the system and asked
if his card had been stolen...

'No,' he said, but then took out his wallet, pulled out the credit card, and yep -
you guessed it - a switch had been made.

An expired similar credit card from the same bank was in the wallet.

The thief broke into his locker at the gym and switched cards.

Verdict: The credit card issuer said since he did not report the card missing earlier,
he would have to pay the amount owed to them.

How much did he have to pay for items he did not buy?

$9,000! Why were there no calls made to verify the amount swiped?
Small amounts rarely trigger a 'warning bell' with some credit card companies.
It just so happens that all the small amounts added up to big one!
============================

SCENE 2.
A man at a local restaurant paid for his meal with his credit card.

The bill for the meal came, he signed it and the waitress folded the receipt and passed the credit card along.

Usually, he would just take it and place it in his wallet or pocket. Funny enough, though, he actually took a look at the card and, lo and behold, it was the expired card of another person.

He called the waitress and she looked perplexed.

She took it back, apologized, and hurried back to the counter under the watchful eye of the man.

All the waitress did while walking to the counter was wave the wrong expired card to the counter cashier, and the counter cashier immediately looked down and took out the real card.

No exchange of words --- nothing! She took it and came back to the man with an apology..

Verdict: Make sure the credit cards in your wallet are yours.

Check the name on the card every time you sign for something and/or the card is taken

away for even a short period of time.

Many people just take back the credit card without even looking at it, 'assuming'

that it has to be theirs.

FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, DEVELOP THE HABIT OF CHECKING YOUR CREDIT CARD EACH TIME IT IS RETURNED TO YOU AFTER A TRANSACTION!

==========================

SCENE 3:

Yesterday I went into a pizza restaurant to pick up an order that I had called in.

I paid by using my Visa Check Card which, of course, is linked directly to my checking

Account.

The young man behind the counter took my card, swiped it, then laid it on the counter as

he waited for the approval, which is pretty standard procedure.

While he waited, he picked up his cell phone and started dialling.

I noticed the phone because it is the same model I have, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

Then I heard a click that sounded like my phone sounds when I take a picture.

He then gave me back my card but kept the phone in his hand as if he was still

pressing buttons.

Meanwhile, I'm thinking: I wonder what he is taking a picture of, oblivious to what was

really going on.

It then dawned on me: the only thing there was my credit card, so now I'm paying close attention to what he is doing..

He set his phone on the counter, leaving it open.

About five seconds later, I heard the chime that tells you that the picture has been saved.

Now I'm standing there struggling with the fact that this boy just took a picture of my credit card.

Yes, he played it off well, because had we not had the same kind of phone, I probably would never have known what happened.

Needless to say, I immediately cancelled that card as I was walking out of the pizza parlour.

All I am saying is, be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Whenever you are using your credit card take caution and don't be careless.

Notice who is standing near you and what they are doing when you use your card.

Be aware of phones, because many have a camera phone these days.

FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE

AS YOU CAN THINK OF. LET'S GET THE WORD OUT! JUST BE AWARE

Never let your card out of your sight.....check and check again!

Scary isn't it.....


Thanks Randy.... I wonder if any of these work with the new chip card???/
