Blog - No Comments » - Posted on April, 27 at 8:28 am

I would like to say up front that I have not seen Avatar. Well, let me be a little more concise. I have not seen James Cameron’s Avatar. But, in looking at the story, I have seen Avatar. It was called Pocahontas and/or Dances With Wolves. I have never seen this type of furor over [...]

I have had my issues with PVPonline in the past (I ordered an artist edition on the How To Make Webcomics, and after 2 months, I finally got a refund, less my paypal fees – so it cost me money to get nothing) so I’m not impartial here. But, if you follow the strip, he [...]

Short but sweet today. Shatner for Governor General? Could be awesome!! Anything is better than the last few we’ve had. Adrienne Clarkson spent like it was going out of style, and Michaelle Jean, a seperatist (at least in her youth, and her husband is one) So, what do you think?

Extreme Homeschooling? Or How To Make Your Kids Unemployable?

Blog - No Comments » - Posted on April, 21 at 8:19 am

Silly Elizabeth May

Again, from Lorrie Goldstein, Toronto Sun: Green Party Leader Elizabeth May complained on her blog last week that the Canadian media have not been reporting that two inquiries in the U.K. into Climategate have exonerated the academic institution and scientists at the centre of the storm.
