I was just watching a clip of the Mayor of Toronto knocking down a woman council member. What is going on up there? This man is certifiable. And I thought our politicians were all nuts. I do hope he doesn't get reelected. He is certainly giving Toronto voters a bad name. He needs to be sent up to Churchill to go polar bear hunting. That will keep him busy and out of trouble.

I agree, the man's a nutter and an embarrassment. We've been joking that at least when the Montreal politicians get caught in something scandalous, they resign.

But, as a friend of mine who lives in the US now, but lived in Montreal for a few years said, jokingly, about that incident with the beheading on a Greyhound bus, "Canada doesn't go in for quantity, just quality." We don't have a lot of crime, but we do come up with some doozies.

I care very much for you! I'm sorry this is happening for you. Addie, you know I hold fast to you in my prayers, and I shall always.

I think I can come up with more bribes for you to sell me to the gypsies. As soon as I get Donald Trump's debit card number and his PIN, I'll let you know.

It's so difficult with these details. This security thing of debit and credit cards certainly interfere with friendships here.

With love (and so very much for Addie also),

I don't want to talk about wasps or hornets, they are really bad news for me. One hornet sting and it's a hospital trip for me. Hate the things.
My husband inadvertently stepped on a ground hornet nest recently. he was stung 16 times. I just put him in the car and drove fast to the emergency department at the hospital.I was hoping that for once the police would be enroute so I could request an escort but no, they are only around when you are going 5mph over the speed limit LOL!! He was not a happy bunny as you can imagine. The hospital staff were brilliant. Worked on him for 2 1/2 hours and he was fine. had to have medication for a week after.
We used Hornet/ wasp foam spray to kill them.................little blighters!!

After picking up a refill Rx, and picking up a few things, I've prepped to make some Twisted Green Bean Casserole
and some Brussels Sprouts in a sauce (more later).

Relaxing with a glass of wine while thawing stuff to cook later.

I just finished raking what I hope will be the last of my neighbor's leaves off his huge Poplar tree and hauling them out back. I really need to talk him into cutting that thing down this year.

What, no leaf blower, Pac? Raking makes my back hurt, just thinking about it!

I've got a leaf blower, Z. It just doesn't do the job as well as raking. Especially when you need to move them a couple hundred yards away. The direction I need to get them going in is against the wind, which doesn't work well at all.
I went and bought a tarp this year. 12' x 16'. I filled it four times to the point I could just manage to drag it. I still have scattered pockets of leaves inside my fenced in areas, but the majority are out back to blow where they may.

Wow, Pac, you must be in very good shape! I'm glad I'm in an apartment now, I wouldn't be able to handle it. Keep up the good work, Pac. If you don't use it, you'll lose it!
