The Best Moments Of Our Newfoundland Trip
The best moments of our trip occurred when the Noseworthy clan and spouses visited their 83 year old mother(mother-in-law)in an Alzheimer's ward in a St. John's hospital. Irene and I were there with four brothers and their wives.

One brother(Joe)who is a deacon at an Anglican church in Ontario gave communion to everyone in attendance including his mother. It was very moving. For a brief second, the older Irene seemed to recognize who was in the room, but she couldn't communicate to anyone.

I believe that this was the first time in fifteen years that the brothers and Irene saw their mother together.

It was an error of omission not to write about this gathering earlier. I'm sure that many of you have had meaningful family reunions in the past.

Movie Review 68: The Haunted Mansion
Mood:  a-ok
It's been awhile since I enjoyed a good movie, but I enjoyed this one. Sure it could have been scarier or funnier, but it did have a good story and great special effects.

Instead of the usual Saturday Night Live shtick, Eddie Murphy actually played a character in a ghostly adventure that was believable. Three stars.

Why do I blog?
I love giving my two cents worth on any subject in the universe. I love expressing my cosmic view of life. I love communicating fun stuff to others and getting feedback. If I can dish it out, I should be able to take it. Through the flotsam and jetsam of my life, I try to select those things that mean the most to me. This includes jokes and cartoons. Every day is different and I try to find something that we can both enjoy for tomorrow.

Do you have a blog? Let me know and I'll check it out.

My "A List" Dentist
Mood:  don't ask
We all know that as a movie star gets more famous, he moves up in ranking to where he can get 20 million a picture. This is the so-called "A-List" system of stardom. It's a kind of caste system which rewards luck at the boxoffice and penaltizes non-luck in the same place.

Dentists too have a ranking system and my specialist is probably the best known tooth artist in Canada. He only does crowns and implants. This is the "A-List Work" in dentistry. His examination of my teeth today could cost me another mortgage on my house.

Obviously, I'll have find another qualified dentist that hasn't hit the big time yet. Who would you suggest in Brampton, Ontario?

Website Of The Week
Mood:  cool
Yesterday, I discovered another website that wasn't stuck in medievel visions of heaven, hell and purgatroy. The people who run it are pretending to be beings/aliens from another world who are connecting with earth. That's O.K. This is simply a way of communicating that they are divinely inspired in the 21st century. If you believe that all heavenly inspiration ended in the first century AD, then this site is not for you. It has cool new age polls as well.

Spiritual Stewardship
A wise man once wrote that if Christians were properly using their stewardship over the earth, World War One and Two wouldn't have happened. This is a subject that I feel strongly about: "The Spiritual Stewardship Over Planet Earth."

The diseases of cancer, aids and other illnesses still ravage many. While the rich get richer, much of the world lives in poverty including children who are often exploited and harmed.

The power of money and destructive force are worshipped by those of different creeds and nationalities.

Mankind is often at the mercy of violent weather, criminals and terrorists.

The belief in guardian angels and other kinds of angels is part of our inherited spiritual knowledge that we can function better as spiritual beings than as human beings(United together in a common purpose).

We don't have to die to become a guardian angel. We can leave our bodies while sleeping or through spiritual exercises and do the jobs that need to be done (e.g. The healing of disease, the protection of children, the control of weather conditions and the fight against evil). These issues can be directly handled on a team basis in the spiritual world. As the apostle Paul stated "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds (2 Cor. 10:4)".

Christians can't escape the responsibilities of stewardship towards humanity("To whom much is given will much be expected"). The time to start operating on a spiritual level is now("Thy Kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven").

More Thoughts And Pictures Of Newfoundland
I enjoy the rugged beauty of Newfoundland's coast line and the friendliness of its citizens. However, I'm somewhat less enthusiastic about marathon card games, sing-a-longs, funerals and blizzards.

All in all a visit to Newfoundland is a memorable and out of the ordinary experience.

Our Departure From Newfoundland
Can you imagine getting caught in a blizzard in late April when travelling to St. John's airport? Yes, that's what happened to Irene and I in the early hours of Apr/25/04. So much snow, we didn't know whether we were on the road or not. We should have taken along a dogsled and an eskimo guide.

A Short Newfoundland Vacation
Mood:  hug me
Tomorrow, Irene and I are leaving for Newfoundland from the Toronto(Pearson)airport. This is just for five days. It'll be the first time we've been there in five years. Irene is looking forward to visiting her mother who is in the hospital. Her family(five brothers and their wives)will get together on Saturday and sing Newfoundland folk songs until 4:00 A.M.. This is a tradition I don't relish. But all things considered, it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to stay there.

Below is the house in Spaniard's Bay where Irene lived in her childhood. Her older brother, Clarence, now lives there.
