August, 2012:

Blue moon – tonight. Live!

blue moon



a. The third full moon in a three-month calendrical season that has four full moons.
b. The second of two full moons occurring in the same month.
2. Informal A relatively long period of time: I haven’t seen you in a blue moon.
Other examples:
  • It will be a blue moon before the Republicans ask Clint to speak at any of their events outside those held in furniture and office supply stores.
  • Prior to the election, Jean said “I’ll see a blue moon before Pauline gets elected Premier!”.
  • Someone stole $30 million worth of maple syrup? Well, THAT’S a once-in-a-blue-moon thing!
  • Once in a blue moon, a CPC Cabinet Minister will say or do something that makes sense. Oops! I guess we have to wait until 2015!

Get out there and look at it folks… and – sigh – please don’t expect it to be blue. K?


Attention: dog peeps in my hood…

I don’t think there is a neighbourhood competition to see how many bags of poop can be deposited at the same stop sign.

I don’t get it. You go to the bother of walking your mutt, picking up its feces and then you just leave the bag behind.

Here was Monday:


And this was this morning:



Although I am pretty much as anti-gun as you can be…

… I think that concerns about a store that sells weapons a couple of doors down from a daycare is a little over the top.

Parents of children who attend a daycare east of Ottawa are up in arms as a hunting store that features guns is set to move in two doors down.

Pro Nature is in the midst of opening in a Clarence-Rockland mall that also includes the Tiny Hoppers daycare. The mall is about 35 kilometres east of Ottawa.

Worried mother Katie Riopel said she has safety concerns due to the proximity of guns and young children.

“My personal fear would be that someone would come in after purchasing a firearm and open fire on the kids,” she said. “[It could be] someone that’s not completely there.”


It may be a bit of an incompatible use zoning issue… but only at a stretch.




Progressives do NOT advocate violence against those with whom they disagree.

The right does.

This is just plain sick.

Sure, we laugh at Harper and his minions. We made fun of Dubya and laugh at the religious right.

But I dare anyone to show me a recent case where a non-neocon has openly advocated violence – and the death of someone on the “other side”.

And don’t rhyme off Mao or Castro.

I disagree with the policies of the Harperites and the GOP, but I would never, NEVER wish any of them harm.

This is from the USA blog,

I know, I know! We liberals are just soooooo sensitive and we’re little crybabies! I mean, it’s not like we didn’t make fun of good ol’ Dubya while he was in office destroying the country or anything, right? Why are we always complaining every time there’s a picture of the President of the United States being killed or compared to a monkey? Can’t we take a joke?

Well, no, we can’t. Why? Because it’s not really a joke, is it? The savages on the right have advocated violence against liberals for years because nothing says “Ha-ha!” like insinuating that we deserve to die. That’s hilarious! First, it’s jokes about how killing liberals would be fun, then “jokes” about secession, then threats of “Second Amendment remedies,” then actual threats about secession and claims that liberals are going to start a war ANY second now. After that, we end up with another Oklahoma City bombing that leaves 19 kids dead. Yeah, it’s all fun and games until the shrapnel starts to fly.

What’s worse is that this is strictly a right-wing phenomenon. No matter how badly Fox News wants to convince its viewers that liberals are terrorists, it’s just not there. There are no liberals calling for conservatives to leave the country. That’s Republicans. There are no liberals calling for concentration camps. That’s the religious right. There are no liberals calling for a new Civil War. That’s the right-wing.

This is sick. And not the good “sick”.

How low can ya go?


Here’s a pet peeve.

People on motorized scooters, on busy streets, when there is a sidewalk available are a hazard to themselves and others.

This was taken on St. Laurent at Walkley in Ottawa.

And no, I didn’t take the pic while driving. I handed my phone to my 8-year-old to do it.








The “what I would like seen thrown into the Ottawa River”…

… page has been updated.

Check it out.


This is hilarious!

If there is a reader out there who lives in the Tampa area, running off a few hundred copies of this and plastering it hither and yon wouldn’t be a bad idea!

America, the rest of the world is laughing at you.


I’m thinking about setting up…


… a separate photo blog. I’ve become much more interested in iPhone photography lately using Instagram and would like to have a platform to post them to. I have tried Flikr but haven’t been impressed so maybe a blog is the way to go.

Upside is that I’d have a more focussed site and would feel freer to post all the pics I wanted. The downside would be that I wouldn’t post anything that could identify anyone. No faces. Especially those of my family. I can and do control access to family photos on Instagram and Facebook, but it is more difficult to do so on a blog unless I want to make it password protected.

Gotta give this some more thought.


I really hope that Hurricane…

… Issac doesn’t completely wreck the Republican Convention in Tampa! I really do.

Because if it does, then we will be left without such fine examples of how freaking crazy some of these wing nuts can be!

And that, my friends, would be a crying shame.



Ottawa’s Live 88.5’s Sunday night show…
Really rox.
