It is an election year in the USA, and for the most part I have been ignoring that in this space. I thought today would be a good day to start a series on the state of America in 2020, but have reconsidered. It is a holiday in the US, the anniversary of the day […]
I’m not sure about the 650 million year part. And if you didn’t have a brain, would you be smart enough to hope for one? Today’s planned post was about masks. The City of Ottawa is supposed to be announcing today whether non-medical masks will be required of anyone entering a store. That this is […]
I think this would be my worst nightmare!
We’re halfway through the week, and if you are reading this the world hasn’t ended. You probably didn’t realize global apocalypse was on the schedule this week. You may remember a decade ago there was much speculation about the Mayan calendar. Supposedly it predicted the end of the world for December 2012. I seem to […]
I avoid YouTube. It can suck up so much of your time. Some of my friends send me links to YouTube videos on a regular basis. There are political commentaries and music videos and some stuff that is just fun. Usually I don’t watch them. It isn’t that I don’t want to. But there are […]
After two days of serious posts about the situation in the USA, I think we all could use a break. So some humor today. I learned early on that my sense of humor isn’t like other people’s. You may have experienced that also – jokes seem to be subjective. Something I think is funny may […]
I gotta admit, I’m curious as to this one. My first thought was my friend Peter, he knows a lot of music – but I can’t decide on the song. As I get older I find the memory isn’t what it used to be (if it ever was) and remembering all the lyrics of everything […]
Some COVID-19 jokes for your Monday morning (or whatever time it is when you see this).
My first thought was that six-year-old boys would probably roll on the floor in laughter – but only if they speak English. German children wouldn’t see the humor. It’s another holiday in Germany, one that I never remember being mentioned in Canada. It is Ascension Day. For some reason, until this week I never heard […]
It’s Saturday. For most of us the workweek is over. It’s a time to relax, go somewhere, do something. Except…. Where I am, and probably where you are too, there isn’t much attraction in going places. Yes, I could now take the train to Freiburg and shop, something I haven’t been able to do […]
