A Royal Problem

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Royal Family.  With Harry and Meagan choosing to remove themselves from their positions in the Royal Family and Andrew being relieved of his duties with the Royal Family, everyone will have to step up to fill the gaps. I have no problem with the choice that…

A Few Bad Apples

I recently read a couple of disturbing stories in the news about teachers and school administrators who have been charged with possession of child porn or with molesting students who were supposed to be their responsibility.  What I haven’t read though, is a reaction by people who say that they will no longer send their…

Not a great bet

Red Green reminds us, “You are not good at something just because you enjoy it. Karaoke has proved that.”   Tarwinder Shokar evidently enjoyed gambling, but he has proved that he’s not very good at it, and now he’s suing Caesars in Windsor Ontario for encouraging his gambling habit.  I’m not sure, but if your business…

Y2K Flash Back

Y2K Flashback: Well, we made it through Y2K. At least if you are reading this, I presume that we made it through Y2K. If you’re not reading this either the power grid failed and we couldn’t have church, or the entire cyber space infrastructure collapsed, and you can’t read it on the Internet. Maybe you’re…

The Perfect Gift

So, did you get what you wanted for Christmas this year? I know, I know, you really didn’t expect anything and what you got was just perfect.  It really is the thought that counts, right? So, just between you and me, did you get what you wanted for Christmas this year? Angela and I got…

Thanks for Nothing

Their parents must have taught them right, at least partly right. Recently, a lady in Saint Paul Minnesota had a package she had been waiting for, stolen off her porch.  That seems to be more common these days, which is unfortunate.  The strange thing about the story is the thief left a thank you note. …

Art vs Art

I don’t know what I find more bizarre.... that a man would duct tape a banana to a wall and call it art or that someone would pay $120,000.00 US for a banana duct taped to a wall or that someone would come along, take the banana off the wall and eat it? The “art”…

Unintended Consequences

I read an interesting article the other day entitled: Should We Stop Keeping Pets? The article revolved around a book by Dr. Jessica Pierce entitled: Run, Spot Run, which looks at the moral and ethical problems surrounding pet ownership. Pierce writes,  “When we see our cats gazing wistfully out the window, or watch a goldfish…

It Takes a Thief

He has been touted as the Robin Hood of McNuggets and across the Internet people have lauded him as a hero of the people.  But the proper term for him is a thief. Recently, Cody Bondarchuk, of Edmonton tweeted, “I worked at McDonald’s for two-and-a-half years and I put 11 nuggets in almost every 10-piece…
