Superbeings, Sourcerers, Angels
No doubt, superbeings and sourcerers are big box office these days, but is there anything actually happening on earth which is comparable to the comic book reality of Harry Potter, Hell Boy, and Spiderman?

In actual fact, there is. The myths concerning superbeings aren't just pure fantasy. We have memory traces from past lives on magic, demons and other beings with incredible powers.

There are places on earth where humans are trained to use paranormal abilities. Who runs these places? You'll have to find out for yourself. Take a trip through the links on the left hand side on this page.

Remembering D Day
I had a father who was in the Second World War. He didn't land in Normandy, but he served in Italy and Holland. He didn't say much about his war service which was understandable because he lost two brothers and friends during the conflict. The highlight of his service was guarding German soldiers who were transported to POW camps in Canada.

We should never take our freedoms for granted. It took the sacrifice of many fine persons to perserve the way of life that we enjoy today. My father passed away in 1968 partially from a lung condition that he developed in the war, but his contribution to my life and the lives of others will never be forgotten.

Hug and thank a veteran today. You may not get the chance tomorrow.

The Fab Four Concert At Casino Rama
Mood:  a-ok
I never saw the Beatles in person, but the "Fab Four" is about as close as you can get to the real thing. The concert was dramatized as performances on "The Ed Sullivan Show" with a very hilarious Ed Sullivan impersonator.

The show covered the main periods of the Beatles legacy from "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to tracks from the "Sargent Pepper" and "Let It Be" albums. There was not only fidelity in music, but in dress and personality as well.

The event in one word was FANTASTIC and I don't give that validation lightly. See it if you get the chance. I kid you not. It really is a well done musical play. Four stars.

My Favourite Coffee Of All Time
Mood:  special
And that's going back millions even billions of years. Yes, it has to be Tim Hortons. Aliens come here for the coffee as well as the sex.

If there isn't a Tim Hortons franchise in Heaven, I'd open one up.

A day without a Timmy is a day without shineshine. There's even an outlet where I work. Also, within ten miles of where I live, there's at least eight Tim Horton donut and coffee shops.

Paul Martin's Biggest Mistake
Mood:  irritated
While Paul Martin had an excellent record as Finance Minister of Canada(Taking the Canadian Government out of a deficit position for many years), it was a mistake calling an election before the "sponsorship scandal" was handled completely. For those who don't know, various Liberal administrators and politicians ripped the Canadian taxpayer off for over 100 million dollars. Find out more on this issue from the link below.

The Liberals have slipped badly in the polls primarily on this issue which hasn't been atequately handled by Paul Martin, the present Prime Minister of Canada.

I don't know who I'm going to vote for at this point, but I'm leaning towards the Conservatives.

Is William Hung A One Hit Wonder?
Many have commented on William Hung's talent or his lack of it. On seeing his "She Bangs video" again, I was impressed by the energy that he put into the performance. In the history of rock and roll, it was often high energy that sold a tune rather than vocal ability(e.g. Little Richard). Also note, that novelty songs were a staple of the 50s and 60s with such great nonsense like "Ahab The Arab","Monster Mash" and "Alvin's Harmonica".

William Hung is a refreshing throw back to the days when "Rock and Roll" didn't take itself to seriously.

Don't you think that Hong Kong Willy looks like Bucky The Beaver?

Movie Review 73: The Princess Diaries
Lets admit it. Julie Andrews would be your favourite grandmother even if she wasn't the queen of Slobovia. This is a well acted comedy/chick flick that is funny in some places and compassionate/meaningful in others.

Every teenager should be a princess and have a nana like Mary Poppins---er--Julie Andrews. Three stars.

Getting A Newfoundland Vasectomy
Mood:  not sure
After having their 11th child, a Newfoundland couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger room.

So the husband went to his doctor/veterinarian and told him that he and his wife/cousin didn't want to have any more children.

The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. A less costly alternative, said the doctor, was to go home, get a firecracker, light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10.

The Newfie said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest man in the world, but I don't see how putting a firecracker in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me."

"Trust me," said the doctor.

So the man went home, lit a firecracker and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count: "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs, and resumed counting on his other hand.

This procedure also works in some parts of Brampton and Cambridge, Ontario.

Changes Needed For American Idol
Mood:  quizzical
It looks like "American Idol" has topped out as the biggest karaoke contest on the planet. The final episode was down substantially from last year.

Obviously, there should be more original material sung in this contest. This would also promote the works of songwriters who desperately need a break.

The song numbers could become production numbers like in a musical or a MTV video. This would raise the series up to a variety show. Maybe in 20 or 30 years, American Idol could be said in the same breath as "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "American Bandstand".
