It's My Birthday And It's Good To Alive
Mood:  celebratory
My wife is still looking for a job. I'm still trying to sell a story. I'm still working at Canada Post, but, gee, it could be worse. I complained about having no socks until I met a man with no feet.

We should always count our blessings every day. I'm still in good health and I still like a good laugh. Also, there's some overtime in my workplace where I can pull in some gravy for my mashed potatoes.

The road to fulfilment is longer for some than others. If you're following a lowly pilgrim's journey through life, this might be good place to start. Sometimes one's progress is measured in inches rather than miles.

Visiting Haunted Houses In Ontario
We visited two during the day. One was in Churchville, Ontario where Indians massacred the citizens in a local saloon. The other was in Bolton Ontario where a young girl and a middle aged man died under mysterious circumstances. We didn't go in there either. Lots of paranormal activity reported. Noises, creepy hands on the body, lights and TVs turning off and on, etc., etc.

The owner left and rented the house out to a bunch of potheads. Nice spooky places to visit but you wouldn't want to live there.

Working Stiffs Need A Break Sometime
Over the last two weeks, I've worked 32 hours overtime. I'm looking forward to two weeks off where I can relax a little and sleep in.

Deep Throat Revealed. Who Is Next?
After three decades, the mystery man/whistleblower/rat behind "The Watergate Coverups" is revealed.

Thirty years is a long time to keep a secret. Nice job Woodward and Bernstein.

The second biggest mysterious being on the planet has to be "Deep Monk" from Hotel California. Where is he hiding and who is he anyway? The clues are there, but can you put them together?

Play Review: The Tempest
If you ever visit Canada, make sure you see a Shakespearean play in Stratford Ontario. Over the years, I've seen Richard the Third, Henry The Fourth-Part One, Macbeth, Hamlet and finally the Tempest starring the great stage actor, William Hutt, as Prospero.

The play is full of magic and spiritual highjinks.

Mr. Hutt gave a multi-dimensional performance, at times cruel and violent, but also forgiving, loving and very poetic.

The play, however, lacks a major adversary to Mr. Hutt's mighty magician and therefore suffers because of it. Three stars.

Living On The Edge
Mood:  hungry
When my wife was laid off three weeks ago, it was a setback for both of us. Our routines changed. Our comfort level decreased.

However, our belief in each other never changed. While sending out tons of resumes in all directions, we are also looking into a home-based business where my wife can use all of her skills.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Sometimes, you have to depend on your own street smarts and experience to get by.

Victories in life often go to the hungriest teams.

Ken Jennings Falls And Carrie Underwood Ascends
Mood:  cool
On Jeopardy, it was obvious that Ken Jennings just wasn't with it. He was slow on the draw for most of the questions. Having won over 2 million last year, he had a very large comfort zone. Brad, the guy who won, definitely wanted it more than him.

On American Idol, country pop triumphed over rockin' blues. Carrie was also the best singer of the class of 2005.

It's hard to beat good voice, terrific looks, and good ole' country music in the Heartland of America.

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.
