Terms and Conditions: The Sabbath

If you follow me on Facebook, that’s assuming that you’ve read the terms and conditions for Facebook and agreed to them, then you might have seen some of my posts from the Babylonian Bee, which is a Christian Satire site, recently this one struck me as fitting.   BOSTON, MA—Local man Justin Fuller immediately fell…

Pardon me?

It’s always interesting to discover new things.  Not always pleasant, but interesting. As everybody knows the recreational use of marijuana became legal two weeks ago.  Regardless of how you feel about that, and regardless of what politicians might say that genie’s not going back in the bottle. The new question is; what about those people…

Terms and Conditions: Evangelism

In 2013 Apple upgraded the operating systems on their phones to IOS 7 and everyone with an iPhone dutifully clicked “I accept” in order to install the new software on their devices. It wasn't long after that that someone posted a screenshot of Page 46.   Apparently, buried deep within the Terms and Conditions were these…

I Did It!

I did something the other day that I have never done in 58 years.  I had thought about it before but had always thought it would be too difficult to learn, and besides why bother? But then I did it, and it turned out that I did a pretty good job of it.   And perhaps…

I don’t think I’ve seen an episode of a Survivor in ten years and it’s probably been fifteen years since I’ve watched an entire season.  But other people are apparently watching it because it’s now…

Last week I read an article about how the Nova Scotia Government has brought forward new laws which defined pedestrians, cyclists and certain others as “vulnerable road users”.  Under the new laws, the fines have doubled for accidents that seriously injure or kill them. And my first thought was, that’s a good thing.  But then…

Storms of Life 4

Dad told me that once as a teen he was with his father on their fishing boat when the weather turned nasty.  Dad was whining and complaining about how rough it was and how he wished that they had of stayed home instead of going fishing.   And his father told him, “you wouldn’t want…

Who’s to Blame? FBL

The question that people are asking is:  Who’s to blame?  Last week in Quebec, a 52-year-old man was hit and killed by a vehicle outside of Montreal.  There seems to be a simple answer there.  Obviously, it must have been the man himself or perhaps the driver of the car that hit him. But nothing…
