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, were… Read more
“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 open… Read more
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 these… Read more
Greetings from Teslin! Some may have noticed that i have deleted facebook, twitter, and whatsap. Social media used to keep me company and i found a lot of the content interesting and stimulating but lately the views of the people i enjoy following have been restricted by the giant social media companies like facebook twitter… Read more
I read waaay too many articles, but the upside is i come across a few real gems now and then. I hope you enjoy the following as much as i have, particularly the ancient quotes from a certain Andrew D White, of 1912 fame and glory. More than a few writers have noted the similarities… Read more
The great reset disconnect… It has been pointed out that a spruce tree is a better survivor in an ice storm than is, to pick an example, a poplar, and why is that so? The boughs of the spruce sweep downwards and are designed to flex under load, and so, their load of ice and snow, when… Read more
It is time, at least at this latitude, to relax with a nice hot cup beside a good-sized stove, and think about what i’d like to do to those mischievous imps who are laughing their overlord heads off at the gullibility of a public so hopped up on MSM that they are mortified at the… Read more
Pandemic practise does have it’s side benefits it seems, as a couple of enjoyable days spent with my lovely daughter demonstrated recently. On the first day we visited my old fishing grounds and returned with a few nice pike fillets, which, after removing the fillets and the y-bones from the fillets, we put through the… Read more
Back in 1998 when we first moved into Teslin, Yukon, the sight of the bridge covered in recreational vehicles was not at all unusual. Often, three, four or five large rvs would occupy the bridge at a time, many with trailers, some the length of the pulling rv would jockey for passing space on the… Read more
I learned some excellent lessons back in 1980 which have made a big difference in my decision-making ability, and even though i have made a lot of terrible decisions in the intervening years, there are still a few lessons i have not forgotten, and doubt i ever will… The winter of 1980 was a bad… Read more
“when a bit of sunshine hits ye, after passing of a cloud; when a bit of laughter hits ye, and yer spine is feelin’ proud; don’t forget to up and fling it, at a soul that’s feelin’ blue; fer the minute that ya fling it, it’s a boomerang fer yew!” Demi and Clarke were pretty… Read more
