Some stuff about Canada's dairy quotas from Canadians don't know the price of milk - The Globe and Mail:

"The system dates back more than 40 years and evolved largely to protect dairy farmers from food conglomerates. [emphasis mine] Today the Canadian Dairy Commission and provincial marketing boards regulate the price paid to farmers and control the amount each farmer produces."

"So, when you compare honestly, Canadians pay fair retail prices, Canadian dairy farmers get a fair share and the Canadian government does not subsidize milk a penny, [emphasis mine]" says Bill Mitchell, a spokesman for the organization. "That's why Canada is keeping its milk marketing system - because it works."

That doesn't explain why milk is cheaper in Quebec than it is in Ontario or why one can't bring more than $20 of dairy products across the border. I don't like milk in plastic bags. There is something about what dairy cows eat in the
US vs Ontario. I call BS on that. I've been nailed at the border for having more than $20 in dairy products.

Anyone out there that needs something to be broken? This is just the day for me. Everything I touch has gone awry on me. Oracle shows up on my screen. Wants to install something on my computer. Now I know they have the Java program and that is important. So I say yes to it. I forgot to uncheck the little box asking if I want to have some stupid thing as my home page. Get that straightened out. Then my health plan gives me a digital thermometer. My old one went dead after seven years. This one is in Celsius. I don't do Celsius. I live in the U.S. and do Fahrenheit. And even if I hold down the button, I can't change it over like my old one. While I was at Winthrop I asked if they had any regular size bandaids. The ones I have are big ones. They look like quit smoking patches. So they give me a little plastic case with ten bandaids in it. (They were a left over gift from a promotional presentation.) Trying to get it open I cut my finger. Then I go to use my cell phone. It wasn't working. So I plug it in to charge it. It already has a full charge. It took me 15 minutes before I realized that it was shut off. I need a cup of coffee. I am afraid to go into the kitchen. Heaven knows what damage I can do in there.

OH PF you need to just put your feet up and relax, three hours left of work is not a good thing. I still have mucho to do today and I don't want to do a thing. But do some of it I must. Take care and just rest.

The heart tests are hanging over me, sinuses are going nuts because of all the fire smoke, one of my new patients has been a friend for years and she's dying of pancreatic cancer. I'm just having a very bad day.

Just go have a cuppa and as you drink it close your eyes and think of all your friends here sitting around the table with you. Some of us would be hugging you too. Prayers going up for you.
