Our Newfoundland Vacation
A couple of years ago, the wife and I stayed at her brother's place in Newfoundland. The people there are very down-to-earth and friendly. If you need some work done around the house, a Newfy can do the job. The terrain is beautiful in a rugged way with lots of bays and fjords along the coast. It also has a history that dates back to the 15th century. Check it out.

Joke Of The Week
A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on the phone line, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the yard scoots back into the house. They don't want the cat shut in the house because "she" always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. The wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon. "He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother." A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab... "Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the backyard. The cabdriver hit a parked car...

Movie Review 61: Broken Arrow
This film is strictly for fans of the action adventure genre. Story line, characters, etc. are subordinate to the nonstop action and things that blow up real good(like four helicopters).

Director, John Woo knows how to keep things interesting with cliffhanger sequences and John Travolta is excellent as the psychotic major. Two and a half stars.

Movie Review 60: Groundhog Day
A terrific performance from Bill Murray in this quirky story about a TV reporter who is forced to relive Groundhog Day over and over. This is a movie that you can see again and again and still enjoy it. Three and a half stars.

South Park Goes After Canada Again
"Blame Canada" I'm sure you heard of the song that received an academy award nomination a couple of years ago. Now, the producers of South Park have a season's finale on the comedy network(Feb/13) called "Christmastime In Canada".

Here's Matt Stone's explanation for this satire:
"The episode is a homage to The Wizard of Oz, the idea being that Canada is a foreign, bizarre place...and just asserting that Canada is this totally strange fantasy place. The kids travel down Canada's "only road", through Quebec and Newfoundland, before eventually finding Parliament Hill and the Prime Minister."

Maybe Matt was visiting our webpages and got inspired to go on his own "Katimavik/Hotel California" journey.

The Top Ten Financial Definitions
Mood:  accident prone
1. Stock Split: Think of pizza slices as a 2 for 1 stock split--you get twice as many pieces of the same pie and so you feel richer.
2. Market Correction: What the markets do the day after you buy stocks.
3. P/E Ratio: Better known as the panic/exit ratio. Fund managers use this number to calculate the time for all the unit holders to bail out of the fund.
4. Momentum Investing: The art of buying high and selling lower.
5. Value Investing: The art of buying lower and selling lower.
6. Cash Flow: The movement of money from a mutual fund to the fund manager. Sometimes called management fees, or management expense ratios(MERs).
7. Day Trader: The opportunity to lose large amounts of money over short time periods.
8. Stock: A magical piece of paper that is worth more when the economy is good and then worth less when the economy is really good.
9. Trailer Fees: The money you pay to your financial planner to buy and never sell.
10. Financial Advice: For every adviser, there exists an equal and opposite adviser.

When It Comes To Family The Weather Doesn't Count
Today, despite the snow storm in central Ontario my wife(Irene)and I visited her daughter(Roxane)in a Barrie hospital. Her daughter had just finished serious surgery. On the way back, we encountered blizzard conditions which we successfully navigated through. Here's what it looked like on the road.

Santa Mail/2003/In Canada
Here were some interesting facts behind Santa mail that was delivered to Canada Post.
1. 95,500 letters were received and answered in the Greater Toronto Area(GTA).
2. 450 volunteers(some of them posties)in the GTA answered those letters.
3. 3,971 letters were received from foreign counties.
4. 42 countries sent letters to Canada for responses.

As one of Santa's helpers at Canada Post, I would like to thank everyone who mailed a letter to dear old St. Nick. Thanks for the presents too. It helped us get lots of overtime.
