“First Significant Snow Of The Season”

"First Significant Snow -""7:47 am"

"Canada Street Hiding""Snow Covered Hill"

—Last night’s snow was a sonofagun to clear away from the end of our driveway after the snowplow tried again to kill me by dumping hard to shovel heavy wet snow compacted not quite to the point where large climbs became ice boulders – And then clearing the icy wet heavy stuck snow from the roof of the van so Cathi could drive legally to work almost convinced my back that it was broken. Should I describe shooting, burning pains in back and shoulders? Nahhhh- This ‘first significant snow of the season’ was beautiful and inspiring, even if the damp cold did sting. Neighbours that often frown smiled and waved at me when they saw that I was taking photographs of the sunlight touching the trees up the top of the hill & giving us unexpected bits of morning colour in this newly whitened world.

“That – “There’s Something Missing Here -” Feeling: “

"Something's Missing -"

— Ever since Barak Obama’s speech the other day – in which he decried that People on the ‘No-Fly list’ should not be able to buy guns – something about that speech had bothered me. I think that maybe this morning I figured out what that was.

— Um, when they’re sworn in, Presidents of the United States of America are supposed to pledge themselves to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution of the United States.

— The Constitution of the United States includes a few provisions that sound suspiciously like ‘Thou shalt respect the rule of Law’. A big deal in the U.S. of A. is a section in the Law of the Land that says everyone is “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” – another provision is, “Everyone is entitled to a trial by a jury of their peers.” This is called “Due Process” – no one should be stripped of their human rights without due process of the law.

— Remember a couple years ago Yusuf Islam – neé Steven Demetre Georgiou, 21 July 1948 – & possibly better known as ‘Cat Stevens’ – Discovered that his name was on a ‘No Fly List’ in the USA. [ not that this particular Yusuf Islam would ever want to buy a gun, but – ] & While I don’t remember hearing that anybody ever apologized to the singer, songwriter, peace activist, purveyor of Love, Understanding, Wisdom, Intelligence and Tolerance – I do remember somebody explaining that ‘Yusuf Islam’ is a common name among followers of Islam and the reason that the entertainer formerly known as Cat Stevens had been denied permission to fly into the US of A most likely had something to do with someone else with that Islamic name having been declared a terrorist somewhere on this planet.

— Something that might be similar to the name confusion cited in the above paragraph and important enough to mention here is what happened in the first of two US Federal elections in which George W Bush was not elected President of the United States, but ended up sitting in the White House for four years after each ‘election’. As was painstakingly documented by BBC journalists —> Jeb Bush – G.W.’s brother – and then governor of Florida, the ‘hanging chad state’,  paid millions of dollars to a Texas-based Conservative Republican research group that supplied him with a list of felons in the state of Texas. Jeb Bush then passed this information on to ‘Law “Enforcement”-‘ “Officials” in the state of Florida, and had them make sure that no one with a Name and Date of Birth that was a close match to anyone on that list and whose race was “other than White” was allowed to vote in the Y2K US Federal Election in the state of Florida. In case you’ve forgotten – Al Gore was projected the winner of Florida’s electoral votes and thereby the Presidency of the USA in that election before a major [ Mercury Retrograde ] ‘Wait a minute’! SNAFU called a halt to the legal election processes and threw the state of Florida into a recount mode that ended in a catastrophe of near Biblical Proportions, in which enough of the 9 hand picked Judges sitting on the Supreme Court of the USA ignored their constitutional imperative and handed the white house to G.W. Bush, Making G.W.B. the first ‘Resident’ of the white house who may have had no business being there. The second Federal Election involving G.W. Bush was sabotaged by the CEO of Diebold Corporation who had bragged that he could, and did – hand the election to G.W. Bush [ -AKA ‘Shrub’, AKA George the second of the Bush Dynasty, AKA a lot of things that cannot be printed in a ‘G’ rated blog. ] George W. Bush is the only ‘Resident’ we can be reasonably sure NEVER won a Presidential Election.

— What does the above paragraph have to do with guns and ‘no fly’ lists? Well, (1) The US Justice system may have been subverted and perverted. It may have become so corrupt that calling it ‘corrupt’ would be way beyond redundant. (2) Since September 11, 2001, and the ensuing ‘Homeland Security Act’ – names get listed on the ‘No Fly List’ without due process of the law. (3) Denying anyone of their constitutional rights in the USA is a Federal crime.

— So, Barry – who is pulling your strings? Who pointed a gun to your head and told you that if you want your daughters to live to see 2016, you better stand up and advocate ignoring the US Constitution and instituting illegal denial of Constitutionally guaranteed Human Rights to satisfy some shadowy gang of perverted ‘Ice-Holes’ agenda? Whatever happened to Due Process? Whatever happened to ‘Innocent until proven guilty’? Do you really want to go down in History as the idiot who ignored the oath you took and burned the bill of rights?

— & to everyone else who read this far: Don’t worry. The evil ice-holes behind the latest activations of mass murdering – helplessly brainwashed puppets with fall under the rule of Karma that catches up with all evil ice-holes. They are so power hungry and so immoral and unethical that they will kill each other off to the point where the few that remain alive will be totally impotent in their rabid attempts to turn this planet into the kind of Hell they have been trying to create here all along.

“Return of ‘The Committee’ – 🙂 -“

"They're Back!""We've Been Worried -""Sunday-"

Monday. December 14, 2015 -( 0˚C / 32˚F — Grey and Damp and Threatening Rain, Snow, Ice Pellets and Freezing rain @ 9:00 am in Atlantic Canada )-

Committee Breakfast, December 14th, 2015.
They’re back! This morning at about 8:30 am, half a dozen deer showed up – quite skittish – but hungry enough to stick around within sight as I tossed several scoops of oats out on the top of the hill where they’ve come to expect yummy stuff, and let me know they appreciate our efforts.

— We’ve been worried about the deer who have been making it through our last couple very tough winters by taking the chance that a couple houses full of humans would be sharing good food and not shooting and eating them [ which is illegal within city limits here ] The declining number of deer in this province has been making the news lately.

Cropped Closeup of Christmas Cactus - December 12, 2015
Saturday morning/ early afternoon – brilliant sunlight played on the ‘Christmas Cactus’ plant on our entry porch in Cathi’s ‘Zen Corner’. I took a couple photos with the macro setting active and got better results than I thought I did.
One view of the woodshed.
Sunday – After our quick trip to the Northside Market we quickly finished up the framing and covered our Wood Shed- hopefully strengthened enough to survive this winter better than last year’s efforts held up under a whole lot of snow- which split the two by two uprights we used as part of the kit that came with plastic ‘hardware’ and instructions. Our neighbour gave us the strong white tarp that did survive last winter. We have more to do here, but I think we’re off to a decent start with last night’s efforts.

— Yesterday, Sunday – Cathi and I had a busy day, zooming off to the North Side Market, where we picked up a four pound chicken for dinner and discovered a ‘gourmet grilled cheese’ kiosk in the food court. Yum- When we got home we had to hurry to finish reinforcing the frame to our woodshed, which is growing around the steel shed we put up in the autumn of 2013. Today, Monday the 14th – we expect a messy mixture of Snow ( 5 cm) rain (possibly 39 mm) Freezing Rain and ‘ice pellets’/sleet (which might amount to a millimeter or so of dangerous slippery stuff -)

"Canadian Gothic"

— And so, even though the dog got out and wanted very badly to play with us while we were knocking ourselves out, and, after I caught him by the collar, made a very squirrel like move and pulled me down hard to the ground, which felt for an hour or so like I’d be in pain for a month or so, but did get better when I heated one of our bean bag hot and cold thingamajigs and sat against the heat while watching “The Librarians” on the Space Channel — I’m really happy the deer are still around, we hadn’t seen any more than two fairly young ones who’d come around on a couple early mornings almost a month ago. And now it looks like there is more of a “Committee” presence than we thought might have survived the summer and late autumn when we heard people out in the woods cutting what may have been trees that fell during storms and burning twigs in a bonfire- And Cathi had the awful feeling that she’d heard gunfire back there, which, as I ‘hinted’ above is extremely illegal within city limits here.

— Yay! –,
