Your Good Girl Is Going To Go Bad
I discovered "Plumby Nut" for the first time on 60 Minutes tonight. All I can say is WoW!!! The whole thing looked like peanut butter on steriods. It was tasty, cheap and didn't need refrigeration. Others had discovered what I knew for a long time. A person could practically survive on peanut butter alone. It was my favourite food since I was five.
Malnutrition is devastating millions of children both in the 3rd world and in North America. Kids can't learn or stay heathy until they've eaten properly (i.e. not from canned foods and junk food but nutritious supplements like Plumbly Nut)
Any crusade against poverty would include a crusade against malnutrition. That would include providing food banks in Canada, etc. with delicious power bars/paste like Plumby Nut.
Get capitalists and politicians on board in the anti-malnutrition crusade. It concerns more people than poor Africans.
It looks like Canada's TSX is going to beat America's Dow for the fourth straight year.
My favourite fund is TD's "Canadian Equity Fund". It's one of only five Canadian equities that beat "The Exchange Traded Funds" over a five year period.
As well as being a net exporter of energy and minerals, Canada also has a very sound banking system that was only minimally exposed to the subprime fiasco (Ninja mortgages: no job, no assets) in the U.S.
Canadian housing continues to maintain its value.
I'm an investor in the blue chip companies in Canada and the world.
The Eagles are my favourite group of all time. They do any music genre well.
With their latest single, "How Long", they return to their desert country roots.
Politicians can appreciate each other, especially, if they do things that make them an easy target.
Just call Dalton McGuinty "Mr. Nice".
Here are some definitions of productivity that could be used at Canada Post or anywhere:
Definition One: The degree of effectiveness of industrial management in utilizing the facilities for production ; especially : the effectiveness in utilizing labor and equipment.
Definition Two: Basically productivity is a measure of what one puts into something compared to what one gets out of it. You can usually get it down to a dollar value where if it costs more to employ a person, machine or process than you get out of it, there is no productivity.
It's always good to know how well or how badly your section is doing compared to others. We've never had a productivity meeting at the Toronto Exchange Office. Now is the time for one.
Most of the parties and the media ignored "green issues" in the Ontario election. It's hard to ignore when we set a new record temperature for October 8th in Toronto (32 degrees C).
The "hot botton" issues like health and education dominated this election.
It's up to us as individuals to separate the hype/spin on the issues from what really matters in Ontario, Canada and the World.
Please cast a vote for the enviromental concerns of the NDP or the Green Party.
I was born in Canada and the province of Ontario. I'm very thankful for that. I enjoy both the city and rural life of Ontario very much.
I'm also thankful for the multicultural aspects of our country that enrichs all parts of our life.
I'm also thankful that I have a good job and a good pension with Canada Post. This is something that many Canadians don't have.
I'm thankful for my late mother, Doreen Barron who helped me and my loving wife through troubled times. Bless you, mom. You're still missed.
I'm thankful to God for my good health and my ability to express my thoughts on paper.
I'm thankful that I live in a democratic country where I can exercise my fundamental human rights.
Finally, I'm thankful that I have a sense of humor and that humor sometimes finds it way to this blog.
Have a good Thanksgiving eh!!! Have a Lakeport (It's a buck a beer.) to celebrate and keep cheering for the Leafs. They'll win the Stanley Cup in your lifetime or your kid's lifetime or......have another beer.
I certainly wish Canada Post all the best in modernizing Canada Post's post offices.
There's so much posturing and spin doctoring in elections that I found it refreshing when I watched Howard Hampton's tirade against the lapdog media.
The faith base issue was a good one for Howard to focus on.
1. It's a stupid mistake from someone (John Tory) who should have known better. 2.It's a dumbed down concept so any moron can understand it. 3. It's controversial. 4. It's an easy no brain issue for instant public attention on the campaign trail. 5. It's a easy way to avoid other difficult issues in the election race. 6. It's played right into the hands of Liberal strategists for their attack ads.
