Joe’s Comment – It ain’t no lie. This early hard winter weather for a whole month and a week before official Winter has me a bit strung out. The forecast is for double digit below zero Celsius for the foreseeable future.
The snow isn’t squeeky yet, but I know it wants to – it whispered so in my ear just the other day.
I filled the pick-up last week – a 2006 F350 diesel truck I affectionately call Nora.
Nora used to be a cheap date.
Her fuel tank registered about ½ full of summer fuel so I thought it time to fill up. Jesus H. Potatohead! $2.29 CDN per litre!!! A half tank fuel cost just under $150.00 CDN. WTF?
Butter has soared to an all time high of $8.00 CDN per pound.
Jesus H. Thunderhead! WTF?
I filed taxes late this year, about half way through November. First time in 10 years I received a refund due to the fact I’d been chipping in monthly for 2 years (COVID hysteria kept me away from the accountants – I refused to wear a mask and told them they were retarded to do so – we made up this fall).
Today I received an email from Revenue Canada, talking shit in two languages.
Cabin fever has never been so intense.
Winter madness has set in – a record breaking three weeks BEFORE Winter begins.
Why not add paranoia to the list?
After all, I’m on a roll.
Time to watch Ren and Stimpy’s ever so magnificent “Space Madness!”
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the year 400 billion:
The immortal words of Marland T. “Ren” Höek ring in my ears….”They think I’m crazy. But I know better. It is not I who am crazy. It is I who am mad!”
Stimpson J. “Stimpy” Cat, do NOT touch that button!
Less than 4 months ’til April….
The origin of COVID 19:
5 Minute Body
A clear and cogent argument from Dr. Elizabeth Bright on the hazards of women’s health, particularly the effect of cortisol.
Australian Rina Ahluwali (5MinuteBody) interviews Dr. Bright regarding women’s health issues, and to a lesser degree, men’s health too.
Eat a stick of butter (minimum) daily, and take an iodine supplement.
Iodine is essential for healthy lady parts.
Men need it too, for prostrate health and thyroid excellence.
Joe and I are feeling menopausal.
We’ve been sneaking butter as a treat since we were a children!:
Harry James / Helen Forrest
What can we say? Only the greatest trumpeter ever and an amazing songstress singing a fabulous song:
Hot Club du Nax
????? “Blue Skies”, with tap dancing.
The tap dancer is cross-eyed.
Another HCdN, just in case they were faking Blue Skies. Here they are with “Everybody Wants to Be a Cat”, with interpretive dance.
What we have here is an attempt to communicate:
Playing for Change
A consortium of musicians from around the world singing the same song – more or less at the same time.
Guantanamera is Spanish for “a girl/woman from Guantanamo.
Joe hopes she isn’t a terrorist:
Another by Playing for Change – a modern inspirational written by Bill Withers, “Stand By Me”.
Not many Crackers in this one, either:
Tool and Die Production
Most of this footage is of Asian origin.
It doesn’t mean ALL industrial / manufacturing has been moved off shore.
It does mean tool and die folks rock!
Joe says if he was to start again, he would aspire to a career in tool and die design. Would he be worthy? It is a cult worship thing:
Hang Son Doong Cave
An amazing natural phenomena.
A contender for the largest cave yet discovered in the world.
The publishers / producers are greeny politicos, but the majesty of the cave eclipses the political message….. and the drama too.
You could turn off the sound. The beauty shines through:
Dr. Patrick Moore
It is time Joe and I refreshed our Weltanshauung regarding carbon dioxide, global warming, and the guilt of humanity compounded.
The best way we know how is to listen to that great Canadian humanist / environmentalist, Dr. Patrick Moore:
Joe is flabbergasted!
What happened to yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum?
(Original expression was yo-heave-ho).
We be off to plunder the ships plying the Spanish Main!
Sailing our 2 mast galleon modeled after the Arc Royal…..
Enter the Sailrocket 2.
This boat can sail faster than 50 miles per hour.
In certain conditions of course, and only in one direction.
The paradigm shift this causes in our little pea brain brings visions of active sea foils that dance in our head:
