The Rules of the Internet vs Any Society

“For instance, if you’re diabetic and the doctor is telling you to eat fruits and vegetables, if you are struggling financially, a fancy salad is not going to be feasible for you. Nor is a gym membership.”

Thousands of horsemen may have swept into Bronze
Age Europe, transforming the local population
“Call it an ancient thousand man march. Early Bronze Age men from the vast grasslands of the Eurasian steppe swept into Europe on horseback about 5000 years ago—and may have left most women behind. This mostly male migration may have persisted for several generations, sending men into the arms of European women who interbred with them, and leaving a lasting impact on the genomes of living Europeans.”

A Plus One Outing

Today I played chauffeur for my Aunt Olof — Mom and I took her for an errand, and then back to her Care Home, almost an hour.

Then brunch at the Prairie Cafe, 2 grocery store stops and home again, so out from 9:30 to 2:30 – that’s 5 hours. Traffic was good and I had a lot of eye contact and nod/smile greetings from a wide range of demographics.

At one Grocery Store, a woman with India ancestry was surprised when my Mom offered for her to skip ahead in line, since she only had 2 of the same 1 item.

She moved in front of me and she and I chatted. I joked that India was in the Commonwealth before Canada was a nation, and in fact, we are only 1 year younger than street lights.

I heard a few soft gasps and some chuckles and giggles from the 2 customer lines in hearing range.

I even made the Millennial Sikh male clerk smile when I was bagging and said to him, “It doesn’t matter how old you are, parents make you 12.”

not all jokes are mean or make any group the butt of them, and humor is one of those things that we all share but rarely do, eh.

Brief Outing Today

I drove my Mom to the Pain Clinic at the Pattison Pavilion Out Patient Wing related to the Surrey General Hospital.

I paced around the lobby for exercise and after a third lap, I sat down at one of the public computers and played Bejeweled and Majong.

 

After my Mom’s appointment, we stopped at the Chain Grocery store Save on foods, owned by Jimmy Pattison, who’s name is on the hospital.

Government vs Business… it’s about mandate and who is being served.
