OK today its rant time, how many of you use Google as a search engine, only to get sucked into websites, some who won’t even allow you the use of your back key to return to your search?

Then you have that horrid website called Pinintrest that’s a glorified cash cow for its owners, and the public gets sucked into its vortex every time you look for something online.

Facebook is loaded with clickbait, websites that appear to have something of interest, but all you find is a page loaded full of commercials to make its owners rich. They get … Read the rest

As we age some of us become complacent, and fall into a routine that could be called a rut, then something or someone comes along and you have no choice but to rebuild life all over again, so what better way to do that then fly halfway around the world, and leave the old life behind?

We flew halfway around the world to discover a whole new perspective on problems, issues and excitement, so over the next 2 to 3 years, yes we plan to stay that long, you will be reading more stories as seen through my eyes about … Read the rest

Recently I have been reading about a group of mayors who think the answer to municipal problems is collecting on the carbon tax. What a bunch of ignorant and self-centered fools. Are you forgetting or is it by design and intent that northern communities have the least chance of ever seeing transit as an alternative means of transportation, they already pay the highest food prices, with the worst selection for quality. toon

Adding insult to injury is the stupid majors in the north that support such idiocy, just because they can ride a bike to the majors office, does not mean … Read the rest

If it look s like I have been quite for a while its due to some major shifts in what’s going on ibn my life, and a case of writers block because of other priorities. I will be going on a possible 3 year hiatus or vacation, but will post the occasional article from abroad.

So bear with me if there is no new content for a while.

Hopefully I will get a chance down the road to write some articles from abroad, if not then I was having way to much fun to be online.

Thanks for having taken Read the rest

Lets say goodbye to Smuckers, and keep our local grown foods.

Lets say goodbye to Smuckers, and keep our local grown foods.

This is just a short rant about a memory of precious days gone by, I recall getting a gift pack of a very great set of homemade jams, wow were they ever delicious, then along came Mr. Corporate Takeover and riding a great reputation, ran it into the dirt of junk jams.

Can you imagine they used to make apple butter that came from trees that Johnny Appleseed. Like all good things the J. M. Smucker Company got too big for its boots, and became more focused on making … Read the rest

OIL and Gold do mix in Canada

I am not often in the position of making predictions, unless a birdie told me something in my ear, and when it comes to issues like this I wish I was wrong, but know I won’t be.

Once again we are being scammed out of billions of Loonies by high rolling thieves that never did an honest day’s work in their lives.

What Canadians are missing is that due to our low dollar, Canada Oil production is I a unique position and is able to continue competing in the market, it’s not bad … Read the rest

Note that this massive engine carries zero passengers and weighs in at 268,800 lbs

Have you ever wondered what life would be like in a logical world? One where government did what was needed for society rather than greed based legislation? Green initiatives are a joke on society, lots of charging us to make us shut up while they do nothing to fix real problems, and use the money to get re-elected.

If Canada continues to grow in population we cannot plan on more cars only, and more roads, you can only fit so many cars on a city street, … Read the rest

It’s so hidden from the news at a time when gas prices are falling faster than a sinking ship, the BC Utilities Commission approves a rate hike of 1.8% for PNG. They are claiming their costs are going up by 14.5% and want to pass on that loss to the consumers. screenshot_147
This when at the same time they are saying, to you and me,

“Natural gas is a commodity traded on the open market like other commodities such as oil, coffee or lumber. As with most commodities, the price is dictated by supply and demand. When demand is high, Read the rest

Why the BC Government? In a nutshell they destroyed more agricultural land in their tenure than all previous governments combined, and who did they sell it too, the same real estate developers who fund all their elections. If we would have protected our food industry rather than allowing China and the USA to produce our food, we would not be having a food price crisis in British Columbia.

Sticker shock, is that how you would describe your last trip to the grocery store? You read it in the press, you say it on store shelves, but are you being had?… Read the rest

Recall that not so long ago we were given this news “BC Hydro rates to increase 28 per cent over 5 years” that was only 2 years ago, was it a coincidence that it came on the heels of another story, namely this one “Vaughn Palmer: ‘Surprise’ BC Hydro cost overruns hard to believe, with execs part of premier’s inner circle

Then in 2015 when they opened the Northwest Transmission Line the real cost went to $736 million almost double what they declared when they budgeted for this project. Thus BC Hydro runs a deficit that we the … Read the rest
