Momma Mia Closes In Toronto
Mood:  sad
After five years and 2.8 million attendees, Momma Mia finally closed last night. I saw the musical twice and it certainly was more than "Abba's Greatest Hits". The story and the characters were both moving and funny.

I've seen many musicals in Toronto including "Phantom Of The Opera" and "Joseph And His Technicolor Dreamcoat", but Mamma Mia was more fun.

As far as I know, it's still playing in New York with the original cast.

Movie Review 93: Clarence
This is an episode that never made it to "The Touched By An Angel Series."

Klutzy angel, Clarence Oddbody, from "It's A Wonderful Life" goofs everything up in trying to help a dysfunctional family. However, he stills succeeds anyway which makes for a real feel good movie.

Some good laughs along the way, but the material is predictable. Two and half stars.

A New Barron Crusade
Mood:  on fire
Over the last few days, I've been sending out lots of my wife's resumes to prospective employers.

Times are tough when you get laid off, but she can count on my support along with my noble friends, Mr. Computer and Mr. Internet.

Too often, we take steady positions for granted, but not anymore. This crusade starts at home and it'll end when my wife gets a job that she deserves.

New Age Religion Of The Week: Mega Mythology
Created in 2003 by the chinese messiah Daniel Poon, Mega-Mythology's principles were first outlined in the self-help paperback called "YIN AND YANG MADE VERY EASY.":The New Dream Of Modern Mental Imagination.

Mega-Mythology's central belief, that any imaginary construct can be incorporated into the church's ever-growing set of official doctrines, continues to gain popularity. Believers in Santa Claus, his elves, or the Tooth Fairy are permitted—even encouraged—to view them as deities. Even corporate mascots like Kool-Aid Man and Davey Cricket are valid objects of mega mythological consideration.

"My personal savior is Batman," said Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Greg Jurgenson. "My wife chooses to follow the teachings of the Gilmore Girls. Of course, we are still beginners. Some advanced-level Mega-Mythologists have total knowledge of every lifetime they have ever lived for the last 15 million years."

Joke Of The Week: Nuclear Power
Mood:  quizzical
Two strangers were seated next to each other on the
plane when the first guy turned to the second and
said, "Let's talk. I've heard that flights will go
quicker if you strike up a conversation with your
fellow passenger." The second guy, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, took off his glasses and said to the first guy, "What would you like to discuss?" "Oh, I don't know," said the first guy. "How about nuclear power?" "OK," said the second guy. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. "A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass. The same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?" "Jeez," said the first guy. "I have no idea." "Well, then," said the second guy,
"How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know
shit?"

The Secrets Behind Alien Abductions
Mood:  spacey
Most humans engage in very mundane and trivial activities which would not grab the attention of a high tech alien race.

And while there are many great writers, musicians, and artists to be experienced, their works can be easily downloaded or accessed through hard media or the internet.

It has been observed that UFO activity is common around electrical grids and nuclear plants.

There are also humans/spirits on this planet who generate massive amounts of psychic and paranormal energy. Some may call this power, witchcraft or wizardry, but the Harry Potters and Luke Skywalkers of Teegeeack(earth)do exist.

The truth of earthly superbeings are cleverly masked by fantasy storytelling. Many times, aliens have probed the minds of abducted humans in an attempt to find out the identities and whereabouts of these dangerous and powerful beings. They have failed miserably.

A story that I've started to write concerning this phenomena is called "Death Maze".

Helping My Wife Find A Job In Payroll
Mood:  caffeinated
Recently, my wife was laid off from her last job in the payroll department. She's now going to employment agencies in search of another position while I'm using the internet to send her resumes out.

If you know of anyone who needs a reliable, hard-working person in payroll or human resouces, please
drop us a line.

She's also a member of The Canadian Payroll Association.

If you can't help, please pray that she'll get a job that she can live with for many years. Thanks.

Movie Review 92: "Ray"
Mood:  a-ok
One of the best biographies that I've seen. The director doesn't pull any punches.

Jamie Foxx won an Oscar for this performance and he deserves it. Not only that, but the story gets into Charles' head and reveals things that few people know. "Ray" is a ray of sunshine.

Four stars.

My Father was a Veteran Of World War 11
My father served in the Second War World. He attained the rank of sargent. Unfortunately, he passed away before he could be part of the VE 60th anniversary celebrations.

I have his medals. He will always be remembered as a hero. Below is a 1940's portrait of my parents, Doreen and Edwin Barron:

As One Door Closes Another Opens
Over the last few days, I've been helping a friend through the traumatic loss of her job. This includes rewriting her resume and job searching through online companies like Workopolis.

Sometimes, one's self esteem takes a beating by employment setbacks. However, I do believe that as one door closes another opens. This applies to just about anything(e.g. birth, death, education and, of course, jobs)

Divine help is always available through prayer and hard work in finding the right position.

When one does his/her best with his/her resume and people contacts, the resulting planted seed will grow into gainful employment.
A Place To Start: Workopolis
