Sitting at home in quarantine, all days seem pretty much the same to me, though I know for many people today is the start of a work week. So I thought I’d offer a few reasons to smile. The biggest joke of course is Canada’s government, which the Prime Minister insists believes in science in […]

I fell asleep just before the climax. Admittedly, I was working on six hours sleep in the previous two days – but it was only 5 p.m. does that suggest the movie was less than compelling? Ever taken part in a murder mystery? A group of people gets together, usually for a meal, people have […]

Is it my imagination, or are we all a little more on the edge these days? More prone to take offence at slights, to feel anger, when in times past we would have ignored the incident? Is it the pandemic? Or was society drifting that way anyway, and now it is more noticeable? I was […]

Justin Trudeau is holding me prisoner. I am not alone, he has had thousands of other Canadians locked up without charges, without trial, without conviction. That this “quarantine hotel” is somewhat comfortable does not mitigate the fact this is essentially an internment camp. There is no public health reason for my being here. The government […]

Did the Canadian government lie to the people when quarantine hotels were introduced? They wouldn’t do that, would they? Back in January, when it was made mandatory for returning air travelers to stay in a quarantine hotel, the government said there would be exceptions. The rules were made public, and anyone who felt they qualified […]

Hard to believe that our time in Germany is over. Took a couple of pictures on our last walk through the vineyard. PCR test came back negative, which means there should be no problems getting home. The goodbyes have been tough, and there are so many mixed emotions. So very sad to be leaving, happy […]

So this is what it comes down to. So many places. So little time. And a pandemic. Every traveler has a list of “must-sees.” I’m not quite sure of the “must” part, but there are some places I would still like to visit. Living in Germany for four years I thought I would cross some […]

If not for the fog, I would never have seen the orphanage. The building reconciled me to missing a day in Cappadocia.  With our flight canceled due to weather conditions we spent the day instead on the Princes’ Islands. There was a big wodden structure at the top of Buyukada Island that we just had […]

Canada has something called the “COVID-19 Testing and Screening Expert Advisory Panel.” These are the experts from which the federal government gets its advice on how to handle the pandemic.  The Prime Minister has repeatedly stated that his government follows the science in these matters, in order to protect Canadians. Unless, of course, it doesn’t […]

I don’t think I need to add anything to today’s pictures. Thank you to the Canadian Constitution Foundation for compiling the list!
