Memories Of The Barrons, Peevers and Wilsons

We visited my mother at the hospital today. My brother, Bob and sister, Linda were there as well. This seemed to cheer my mother up because she got out of bed, sat in a chair and talked to us.

When we went back to our mother's house, we looked at photos of ourselves and our family when they were younger. We found rare pictures of our great-grandparents(The Wilsons who lived into their nineties)and my mother's family(The Peevers). My mother was quite a looker in the early forties. Check this out:

My Mother Is In A Newmarket Hospital
Mood:  sad

I was quite distressed yesterday to discover that my mother's VON nurse called 911 to have her sent to South Lake hospital in Newmarket.

I went up yesterday to visit my mother(Doreen Barron)in emergency. She has serious health problems that haven't been fully diagnosed yet. I telephoned my brother, Bob and sister, Linda Wilkinson, yesterday. Today, I telephoned my aunt in Toronto(Olive Buckley) and my brother, Ted in Cobden, Ontario.

Certainly, mom could use some cheering up. If you know Irene Barron, please visit her in the Newmarket Hospital at the address and map below: (Map And Directions To South Lake Hospital)

A prayer for her would be appreciated as well.

In Income We Trust

But not any more. The Canadian Government has moved to close loopholes that allow "Income Trusts" to pay no taxes while corporations do. It seemed two of Canada's biggest telephone companies, "BCE" and "Telus" wanted to hop abroad "the gravy train" and become Income Trusts rather than private companies.

All you have to do to qualify is pay out your profits to "investors" who are on board the gravy train too.(It pays better than bonds, dividends or anything else.)

In the end, the Canadian taxpayer would have to pick up the tab which was a billion a year with 700 million going to foreign investors who pay minimal tax. (What's An Income Trust) (Globe And Mail Articles)

Why I Drive A Chevrolet Uplander?

Well it's cheap for a minivan with the features we wanted: The cruise control, the power windows, the two sliding doors, Onstar, the MP3 player, the DVD player, the anti-lock brakes, they came with a basic package worth $21000.

We had trouble with the airconditioner and MP3 player, but these were quickly fixed under warranty.

I found the ride atequate, but the fuel mileage leaves something to be desired. Sure, I could have paid an extra $10000 to $15000 for a Japanese minivan with better mileage, but I didn't want to drive it for 10 years and then replace the expense parts.

I'm looking forward to the day when all car companies will making "plug-in hybrids." Just imagine a smog free city and over 100 miles to the gallon. The faster this happens, the better off we will all be. (Plug-in Hybrids) (The Uplander Reviewed)

Prejudice Against The Undead

Human prejudice comes in many forms, prejudice because of race, prejudice because of religion, prejudice because of culture, etc. However, the ultimate human prejudice is against the undead and zombies in particular, pure and simple:

  • Zombies want to eat your flesh and brain
  • Zombies are only interested in killing human beings 
  • Zombies are demons from hell
  • Zombies are basically all the same with a destructive intent
  • Zombies are the evil scum of the universe

Movie after movie has portrayed them as soulless, mindless killing machines.

You never see anything from the zombie's point of view, because supposedly it's being controlled by the devil or some unseen power. This smacks of propaganda. If some zombies showed up on Earth, we would be at war with them. No diplomacy or communication would be used by human governments.

There's a story here that isn't being told. In the 21st century, zombies seem to be entertainers who act in movies and scare people. Of course, there's something scary about not staying down when you're dead. Our society just doesn't have any place for the undead except on Halloween.

The story about who the zombies really are and what they really want has never been told. Maybe I'll be the one to tell it, someday. (Land Of The Dead Reviews)

Movie Review 108: I Bury The Living
Mood:  a-ok

This is a genuinely spooky suspense/horror movie from 1958. Black pins go into a cementary grave-plot map and people die. White pins go into the same place on the map'll have to see the ending yourself.

The film has the suspense and mood of a Hitchcock tale with a Twilight Zone kind of feel. You never seem to know what's going to happen next.

This is a different kind of movie for Halloween. Three and a half stars. (Movie Review)

A Spooky Place To Visit On Halloween

This would be the hotel and resort located at .  This place actually exists, but it isn't the hotel mentioned in the song "Hotel California".

What kind of activities are they running? If you knew the group behind it, you would know.

Genuine haunted houses can be very entertaining, but don't go into this one with your eyes shut.

Any guesses as to where this hotel is and who's behind it? Give me your ideas at

Halloween Costumes
Mood:  mischievious

Looking for the ideal Halloween costume that matches your secret undead identity. Check out the Gehenna Funhouse at

However, if you're looking for something off-beat and politically incorrect, check out this "Al Jolson Costume" at You can be a singing fool in some crazy cult.

Halloween is a time when we enter a dark area in our subconscious mind. Finding some scary identity or spooky place can be fun. Sometimes, you find another world(e.g. )

Have a Happy Halloween.
