Pro-Life

I’m tired of being vilified.  You see, I’m pro-life, and it’s not because I’m a misogynistic old white man who wants to take away women’s control over their own bodies. It’s because I believe that pre-born children are human beings who deserve protection.  And I know that there are hard cases. When the mother’s life…

A Way That Leads to Death

Do you remember some of the decisions you made as a teenager? Perhaps decisions you regret making now because of their long-term consequences. I read an article the other day concerning a special committee of MPs and Senators considering whether youth under 18 should have access to euthanasia and assisted suicide.Some of the experts called…

I Quit

I think I’m ready to quit. There’s more that I can do, but I think I’ve done all that I want to do.  Of course, I’m talking about my book, A Fisherman’s Tale. What did you think I was talking about? Every time I read through the manuscript, I find something to change.  Sometimes it’s…

Who you going to call?

I read an article the other day that asked the question; Can you trust social media for health advice? The answer the article gave, of course, was “that depends.”  If the advice you get from your social media enquiry is to see your health professional, you might be all right. On the other hand, who…

Just an Idea

Angela and I were out shopping the other day and noticed how many stores were advertising for staff or had reduced their hours because of staffing issues.  It was then that Angela came up with a bizarre idea.  She suggested that one solution to the problem might be if all the stores agreed to close…

Shaking the Family Tree

Wow, I disappeared down the genealogy rabbit hole the other day. It happens every once in a while, usually without warning. I was never really interested in the distant past until a few years ago when I discovered my family tree was rife with hermits, rogues, convicted traitors and convicted witches. And before you get…

Every Move You Make. . .

It was an interesting observation of human behaviour.  On Saturday, I was driving to a funeral in New Brunswick when it happened.  I was going the speed limit-ish, which seemed to annoy some of the drivers behind me because several cars pulled out to pass.  What was annoying to me was that as soon as…

Let it Go!

He was probably really cute! Recently a Massachusetts family discovered that the puppy they rescued on the side of the road was actually a baby coyote. The family said they found the pup wandering and distressed on the side of the road but soon realized that it wasn’t domesticated. The Cape Wildlife Centre confirmed that…

You can run. . .

The headline was intriguing, “Canadian astronauts no longer free to rob and kill with abandon in space or on the moon.” It has been reported that buried in the 2022 federal budget is legislation that would extend Canadian criminal jurisdiction to infinity and beyond. Presumably, within the present legal framework, Canadians in space can commit…
