Although i have spent a ridiculous proportion of my 60 plus outdoors, winter and summer, and have so far survived some pretty near misses involving weather conditions which can at times be brutal in both southern and northern canada, the first time i heard someone mention “winter camping” i kind of went, huh? I wasContinue reading “winter camping”

i get epiphanies, eh?
There was a time when I owned a jetboat, a jetboat with a 455 Olds no less, a four barrel carb and it liked gas, and the oiligarchs liked it too! Anyway, it failed me once too often likely due to hydraulicing the valves and I swapped the motor out in one overnight effort, andContinue reading “i get epiphanies, eh?”
Sometimes people do the right thing It’s true. Sometimes, as hard as it is to believe, people actually do the right thing. In fact, sometimes several people do the right thing at the same time!. And now I am going to sound like a wild braying jackass of a liar when IContinue reading “so blast”
Well it’s 40 below and I don’t really care because the stove is cookin’ hot and the sky is clear. I don’t recall it being this cold on a christmas day… ever… but maybe… We’ve been running about 10 degrees below normal for the last couple of months but so what? Easy for aContinue reading “christmas warmth”
canada is losing its mind
This story encapsulates for us all the ludicrous absurdity of the assertion that the authorities are “keeping us all safe”. Obviously, no one is safe in the world they are creating and here is the proof. Some reading these words have never experienced 30 below Celcius so please allow me to “splain” what it’s like.Continue reading “canada is losing its mind”
if war is peace does no mean yes?
What if corruption, theft, murder, rot and deception were to become so commonplace that honest healthy, hard-working types came to be seen as diseased freaks crying out for their own destruction and elimination ? We already have Phase 1 of this program reaching completion in our corporate media/governance system so it isn’t that great a stretchContinue reading “if war is peace does no mean yes?”
This short story was sent me by a close personal friend. Apply as needed! “Mr. White once was freezing one cold winter night. He was so exhausted, and did not know how to keep warm to survive.So he went and knocked at Mr.Brown’s mansion door. Mr. Brown invited him in, made him a nice cupContinue reading “mr white”
the truth is a conspiracy theory
Someone has pointed out that the truth is like poetry: no one wants to bloody listen to it. But unlike poetry, fortunately the truth can normally be silenced with a simple pair of words, indicating the speaker is about a half a bubble off plumb, and a rampant consumer of tinfoil, oh hahaha. Yet, wereContinue reading “the truth is a conspiracy theory”
don’t laff it could happen to you!
“all who trust in their riches will fall.” In my days of guiding i have encountered a very few individuals whom i would count as “arrogant”. It’s not a label anyone would choose for herself but rather, it is normally applied to people against their personal wishes. Recognizing this, most adopt a stance of openContinue reading “don’t laff it could happen to you!”
money, the worst store of value
There have been times when the value of paper currency could be counted upon to buy the same today or next year, or it could be deposited at the bank to buy even more in a year or two. However, I would suggest that if your retirement plan is being measured in paper money theseContinue reading “money, the worst store of value”
