Urinating Standing Up May Soon Be Illegal in Europe

leave a comment

Think of the opportunity for employment!  Once the flagger season is over we could place Liberal urinal police in every public washroom.

Standing up while urinating may soon be illegal for men in Europe. Male representatives on the Sormland County Council and the Left Party are pushing for “sitting only” public restrooms.

The Bell store

leave a comment

I have had four occasions to stop in the Bell retail store in the Smittys mall. Each time I have been served by bright young enthusiastic employees. They know their product and know how to make the selection less confusing. On one occasion I had a whispered bit of advice of how to get an upgrade before I was eligible.

As I watched and listed to their customers am of the opinion they need to make one change. They need a technically competent person over the age of 60 who can relate to the seniors who are embracing (and sometimes struggling with) technology. I almost suggested that to their manager. I could do that job!

Skinned in Paradise – The Gentle Island

leave a comment

Among the findings of the eight-week probe:

1. The P.E.I. government interpreted Ottawa’s immigration rules in such a way that immigrants could be considered actively involved in businesses they knew little or nothing about.

2. The program brought thousands of immigrants to Canada, mostly from China and the Middle East. But with no tangible connection to P.E.I., many immigrants either never came or moved on quickly rather than settle on the Island as Ottawa intended.

3. Organizations that would otherwise have been ineligible were able to access immigrant money by creating new corporations structured to meet the program’s rules.

4. If the program had operated as advertised, it would have pumped more than $660 million into strategic sectors of the P.E.I. economy, twice the annual value of the Island’s agricultural sector. The real amounts were far less, and more than half of the money was made by middlemen.

5. Ottawa spent several years trying to get P.E.I. to change its program to conform with federal regulations, but P.E.I. pressed ahead, leading to a fierce war of words, and Ottawa’s decision to force the shutdown of the program down in 2008

What can I say

…Worryingly, the book advises men that they should scold their wives. According to the book, they may also ‘beat by hand or stick, withhold money from her or pull (her) by the ears.’

It the adds that men should ‘refrain from beating her excessively.’

The book came to light after going on sale in a Canadian book store. It is understood to have sold out there.

For the record, I draw the line at pulling her by the ears.

France is a country you have to drive through to get to Italy. That’s all it’s there for.
