Don't flock with us.

Thank god for Charlies Angels and Brian Adams otherwise they would never have escaped.


I watched COMBAT SHEEP tonight on BBC Canada and nearly pissed myself laughing.

Something isn't quite right. The weather here in Vancouver (Beautiful BC) is fantastic. Sunny and nice. Yesterday I was walking on the seawall with SWMBO and what do we see? Blooming cherry trees.

I know this is lalala land and lotusland and all the rest of it but somehow it is just too early. Cherry trees should not be blossoming before Christmas. Should they?

Meanwhile Winnipeg is 30 degrees below zero, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa are getting battered by winter storms.

Strange world we live in.

Holiday greetings to all

Not even a piece of toast ressembling Lou Lou's bum.

No folks it was old tools. Planes, saws, brace and bits and the like. That's what we bougt at the auction.

Now I ask you. What can anyone do with a bunch of old supposedly "antique" tools?

SWMBO has decreed they will look nice on display in our new "country kitchen".

So there you have it. The whole sordid story.

Everytime I look at an old tool from now on though I will see an image of Lou Lou's bum.

I have been away for a few days. A kind of "pre-Christmas" Christmas Break so to speak.

Nothing super exciting - I have been to Victoria. The Queen City. Capital of British Columbia. It was mostly rainy and cold. Much like Vancouver. But it was a change.

Different places to go. Different place to eat. etc etc etc .....

Guess what I bought in an auction sale. Not by accident but costing more than I planned. So I think we can fairly say not by accident but more by stupidity.

Rainy Fucking Touristy Robson Street

Have you ever tried to walk down Robson Street on a rainy day? Even this time of year, no matter weekday or weekend, the place is over run by tourists. All the interesting stores are gone replaced by stores targeted at tourists. There seem to be two kinds of these. The first sells pure unadulterated trash of the highest order. Tacky Vancouver Tee shirts and the like. The second , since most of the tourists are from Japan sells high end women's shoes and clothes (nothing exceeding size 3).

The sidewalks are full of roving bands of marauding tourists and since it is raining they all carry lethal weapons. Umbrellas which they have no fucking idea how to use. There is an etiquette to passing someone when your umbrella is up and theirs is too. One of you lifts the umbrella high and the other one goes low. I generally go high because I am usually higher to begin with. If you don't follow umbrella etiquette you cause all kinds of problems. The other thing about umbrellas is that you must make some attempt to avoid poking peoples eyes out.

There should be mandatory classes for tourists in order to get a visa. Tourists shouldn't be able to get in to Canada without a passing grade in umbrella etiquette. Stores in Vancouver should not sell umbrellas to people without proof of their passing the umbrella etiquette class.

And that is all I have to say on this subject.

When Vancouver weather is great it is really great. What a wonderful place to be.

This morning I was coming over Lionsgate bridge, the sky was blue, the sun was shining and all was right with the world. Except for the fucking traffic and idiot drivers of course.

All of a sudden I realized again why I live here.

Of course I didn't feel that way 2 days ago when it was pissing down. Raining so hard you could barely see across the road. Of course it didn't help that all the idiots were driving just the same as if it was nice and sunny.

With the rain came snow at the higher elevations. The mountains look pretty with snow on them but thank god I moved lower down. I'm almost at sealevel now so even if it is snowing higher up the mountains it is only raining at my new place. And you don't have to shovel rain.
