It’s August, and like all things, Summer, too, will come to an end. But before it does there are weeks ahead to enjoy what the warmth of the sun offers. More great shows at Musicfest, Havelock Jamboree, Peterborough Folk Festival, every outdoor or backyard party, wedding or reunion, all praying […]

So it snowed in Mexico. More like ice and hail, but whatever it was, it wasn’t right. I know some climate change denier will say, that stuff happens and it’s just the natural change of things. They’re most often the folks that point to snow in subtropical climates and quip […]

So summer made it, sort of. Lots of people dealing with flooding and soggy soil. Farmers are having problems getting the seed in the ground. No seed, no food, no people, no hope. Lucky for many climate change deniers, they get their food from a bag or a box, that […]

Crashing into May, the weather is horrible, the winds are up and the world is turmoil. The Venezuelan military, as of today, is running people over in the streets. I could go into a long conjecture on how plummeting oil prices, generous social spending and lack of successful business experience, […]

The April Fool. Once thought to have planted their crop according to the new Gregorian calendar. “In like a lamb out like a lion” and all the seedlings… lost to frost. This month has felt like that, with the passing of some old acquaintances. But, I won’t go there. Instead, […]

So, here comes March. Famous for the Ides, the drinking and the first glimpses of spring. A month when, just as you think you can’t take winter anymore, a tulip pops its bulb through the snow. It’s when motorcycle shows start selling you dreams, and you take that one last […]

Brrrr… Have you been hearing from Climate Change skeptics asking where the global warming went? Even America’s idiot President suggested he “Sure did miss it!” I remember back in the 70’s growing up as a teen and people were saying we were going to see some interesting times ahead. And […]

Ok, month number one of the new year; 2019. What can we expect? Well on the world stage, more unrest in the Middle East, as Trump continues to say, out loud, whatever comes into his head. That will breed further insecurities on the market, and pension funds will lose money, […]

Question. Where did 2018 go? Is it just me or is time speeding up? Eternal question, I suppose. I remember when a day seemed to last forever, especially if you didn’t like what you were doing. Remember sitting in high-school staring at the clock, convinced it was going backwards? Now […]

I just flew in from Shanghai and is my brain tired. For any of my friends, that I’ve subjected to my frantic rambling descriptions, I apologize. It’s just that, I’m in awe of what is going on there and feel like I need to tell everyone! ‘Cause, I really didn’t […]
