Oh, Ho, Oh

OH look at the calendar… Christmas is getting closer, the mall parking lots are becoming much harder to park in and more lights are on houses. wooot.

I saw a commercial for an upcoming T.V. special, the question was asked… How many Christmas lights are enough… the answer was something like… don’t quote me…. six hundred thousand four hundred and thirty two.

now I am sure this isn’t the house in question

…Insert clever title here…

It’s beginning to look a lot like… hmmm Wednesday?  and why is the n before the e in Wednesday? English is a bit bizarre sometimes. See it is easy in French… Mercredi much easier.

Woo hoo we may have snow tonight, that will make the Christmas lights look so pretty, of course it will be warm this weekend again and it is all going to melt… so the dilemma… do we shovel the driveway or wait?

oh oh oh, speaking of Christmas… points up.. see I was…. There are so many Christmas movies on now, they seem to have made a lot more of them, we watched one the other night that was a remake of a remake of Miracle on 34th street, of course they didn’t call it that, but it was the same, sort of. Santa was on trial and a couple became engaged at the end of the movie due to the request of a daughter. It wasn’t a fantastic movie but it was cute in places and sort of not in others.

My question, this time of year, is why The Most Important Christmas Movie Ever… hasn’t been remade?

Passion can be a terrific thing.

It can give a direction, create a drive in someone.

It can restore the will to live.

A tormented mind is a confusing thing, the drive it creates is in the wrong direction. We know this, but we can’t find the brakes, so we go along for the ride. It is hard to change lanes, it is hard to exit the ride.

Amy did though. :)

She has passion, a direction, a goal.

This is truly a wonderful thing as she has been through a lot these past years, so she knows and understands about that ride that you seem to have so little control over.

She co-founded a project to help others find the exit from that ride. To save lives.

She is raising money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

 If you poke around her links, you can see what she is doing, how she is trying to helping others, she is helping herself too though, with this passion.

Visit her blog, click on  like, it goes a long way knowing people care, spread the word of her campaign if you can, to help her in her goal. Perhaps even, click on buy, for one of her shirts or hoodies. :)

Just when you think… you have… heard it all…

Naked man crashes through ceiling at Boston airport restroom, attacks elderly man



Before leaving for family visits this morning, I peeked at an online newspaper… that was one of the headlines.


I know it can rain cats and dogs… but naked men?


I am bringing my umbrella. 



Mother Nature needs some time off

Mother Nature is at it again it seems. We plunged into winter, snow fell, then a bit more fell, some melted and she noticed… so she sent some more.


She seems confused today as she is picking her snow up and swirling it all over the place, like she doesn’t know where to put it, I do wish she would make up her mind, we shovelled our driveway twice this week, the snowblower is going on our tractor this weekend… but with her tossing snow all over the place… the snow we shovelled is going to end up in the driveway again. sheish. where is my exclamation mark… oh here it is !!!!!

Catching up… yet again … so rambling time

Phew.. I am behind on blogging, time keeps zipping by for some reason. I know the days are getting shorter, well less light, but it seems they are getting shorter too. Being busy must be the culprit. I should retire. lol

So I will ramble and rant now, you know… to catch up.

The news has been interesting, we landed on a comet! (we being humans), considering how far away this happened, and how fast the comet travels, this is quite an accomplishment. So the next item that boggles my mind…. is why “kids eating laundry pods” is in the news so much. 

LaundryPackets (Small) cute huh?  not when you eat them though.

Trick or hmmmm hey those are my treats

It is getting closer again, that night when we train our youth to go door to door to become candy thieves…

It is horrible, we buy all these wonderful sized titbits of chocolate, candy and tiny bags of chips…. and they ring the bell and ask for them or threaten to do dastardly tricks….

We are not sure how many will come to our door this year, each neighbour we ask has a different estimate, I think we need to have enough for four hundred of them.


Well we could have one to two hundred, maybe more who knows?
