Philosophy, Waters style

I have a cold and it was the full moon and I’m mucho hormonal. Plus it’s been cold. All in all, Not a great weekend. On the plus side, The Habs beat the Maple Leafs 2-0 on Saturday,  and the Alouettes are Grey Cup bound. The Grey Cup, in case anyone is interested, is the […]

Post 100 looming

Wow it’s 11 degrees and raining. In November,  in Montreal. Obviously those Tea Party types are correct,  global warming is a liberal pinko invention, and conspiracy. You have to wonder,  who is voting for these people. Probably the same people,  who think Stephen Harper is a strong Prime Minister. As the kids say, whatever! I […]

Understanding, a never ending Quest?

A rant, on how the Canadiens are not just a hockey team

The weather? Not so great. The Habs won one and then lost one. On Thursday night I had dinner with a friend. The plasma screen,  above the bar,  was showing hockey highlights and scores. My friend saw me watching and said  “don’t you think it’s silly that they named a street after the Canadiens,  I mean […]

The Dude

Ladies, may I present The Dude. A big thank you to my good friend in Toronto for the picture. It was a dark day and The Dude was not in one of his better moods. But, you can see what a pretty beast he is,  right? I can’t find a single thing to read in my […]

Memories are made of these

It’s raining. I told you all yesterday,  that I was feeling wonky, yes, that is the technical term. So, in an effort to beat the doldrums, I thought I would write about,  some of my favourite things. Some of my likes and loves,  you are familiar with, Blundstones, Swatches, L.L. Bean shirts … Others are memories of […]
