Geeez, I sure feel guilty living in Southern California.

This week, our average daily high temperature is between 69 - 71 degrees F (20 to 21 degrees C), and the average low at night is 41 to 45 degrees F (5 to 7 degrees C).

Aaaaaaah, yet another week in paradise.... :p

Jackd vs. moedip

Two fellow Canadians getting so publicly impassioned?

I'm marking the date on my calendar...

(as usual, of course, the outcome was polite and amicable).

P.S. The heatwave has just reached us...it went from -15C last night to a positively hot +2C today. I think I'll fire up the BBQ as well...

Isn't that funny?

And so true. I travel to B.C. and Ontario on business several times throughout the year, and I always notice how polite and controlled Canadians seem to be.

It's too true! I rarely witness Canadians publicly rallying or speaking out. When we do though, it's full tilt.

The last time I saw it was when Canada won the men's gold for hockey in the past Olympics - remember?

When Sakic scored the last goal and the game ended, I opened my backyard door and yelled at the top of my lungs in joy. There were a couple of furtive, silent seconds where I heard nothing but the hum of traffic...but then...an answering yell came from somewhere down my street, and then another and another. The whole street was yelling. I smiled, closed the door and went back about my business. It was a great feeling. It's funny how sometimes banal events (like a hockey game) can transcend into something much bigger...

Although if you want to see us foaming at the mouth, just ask about the state of healthcare...

Health Care? Did you say Health Care? - add to that the $1 BILLION Dollars OVER BUDGET unapproved tax money being spent for the stupid gun registry and most Canadians haven't registered their guns anyway. Now you are talking PASSION!! The Feds want the Ontario Police to find the people who didn't register and charge them. Turning legitimate honorable gun owning Canucks into criminals. The gangsters bring in heavy duty guns from the States, and believe me "They don't need no stinkin' registration". Tax and spend without logic - If gun owners shot off their guns like Chretien shoots off his mouth without thinking - we'd be in real trouble. And as Chretien says The proof is the proof - show me the proof and I will know it is the proof when I see the proof so it will be the proof - or words to that effect - Want any more "proof?" I will end with the "typically apathetic Canadian" response ---- " YEAH, BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT???" Ain't it the truth?
PS - How was that for passion????

lol...

Yeah, the whole gun registry thing is a waste of time. A billion dollars plus, all just to get the couple dozen or so Canadians who actually own guns (other than the BB or pellet variety) to register them...

Don't worry about the slingshot - anything with a velocity slower than his rantings is safe.

OK I'm man enough to admit I was wrong and you are right. But using your analogy - Howitzers should be safe too.
