For this mornings outing fortification, we went to A&W which has expanded their breakfast offerings to include the English muffin as a variation on their standard hamburger buns breakie sammiches.
A&W is also offering 24/7 breakfasts as McDonald’s is and Burger King is in 2017 starting to compete in the breakfast menu. Canadians are hobbits.
I went into the women’s washroom before heading into serious traffic; inside was a young mother and 2 daughters, 8 and 6. She was pretty and just brushing her hair in the mirror.
The girls looked at me and turned towards their mother; I laughed and said “Awe, they are so cute in that shy age range, don’t worry girls, one day, you’ll get to be scary teenagers!”
Their mother smiled and laughed, that pride affectionate laugh and the girls calmed down; the stranger danger assessment demonstrated by mom allowed them to ignore me while I disappeared into a stall.
I returned to the table and watched a young Dad take his 8 and 6 to the men’s room, which they couldn’t get into. They even had an attendant come and she knocked on the door and then checked the empty women’s washroom and sent the 2 boys in there. They had been roaming more freely within a radius of their Dad, staring at various people, but mostly the larger evading or dragging the younger, but strangely quiet for white kids I thought.
I wasn’t close enough to hear and really didn’t care to listen either.
At Royal Colombian, I ended up talking to the patient beside my Dad for an hour.
unusually for Canadians, we talked world politics from The Queen signing off on the Europe Divorce to Trump having his daughter as a first lady.
Seriously, between the USA Hillbillies and the Europe royal families, there’s a lot of banjo.
2017 and the USA Government of Day has failed to take away the health care that Americans currently have on the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s military draft and medical exam.
America is seeking to roll back to the 1950s, but the bad aspects that Elvis put a cultural shift end to.
depends on how measured, it’s mostly a feel good exercise that lets people fear aware and superior to others. I remember when recycling meant one was a hippie freak, not an earth hater.
If you doubt climate change is real, then evidence is right in the Rocky Mountains. Glaciers there have retracted for decades. Not a single years since the 1960”s have they grown.
They melt more and more each sommer, and don’t grow much during the winter. That’s climate change in Canada.
I don’t doubt it, I am a former Emergency Preparedness Federal Officer. I doubt the effectiveness of media stunts and participatory media.
- I understand why you made that assumption, the text of my post was garbled, and should have read “I remember when recycling meant one was a hippie freak, while now, not doing it makes one an earth hater.”
anyway, when I home, I pulled into the driveway and watched the toddler boy from one of the 2 Syrian refugee families living next door – there are 2 suites in that house.
the young boy watched in open mouthed shock as I drove the vehicle
his eyes following me as I backed into my driveway
welcome to Canada, eh kid
how polite does one have to be towards those who would genocide us exactly?
Do you think all 1.8 billion Muslims want to “genocide us?” I think I might notice a violent attack by 1.8 billion people. To date the number is closer to the tens of thousands range (a small minority), and most of those just want us out of their backyard (that’s why they call us “crusaders”). If we attack the whole religion (especially with violence and oppression) that will likely change.
- I think that the Abrahamic Trilogy Religion poses the biggest threat to a world where the majority of people are outside of in in Hindu/Buddhism and it’s men driving the breed war paranoia and treating women as chattel that all religions do is the problem. America, a christian theocracy is most likely to end all life on this planet.
- religion is mental illness and is not the basis for governance, which is stewardship – people who think smallest of others are the problem, so consider your own posts and messages.
- when I said “us” I meant atheists. when I said “us”, I meant LGBTQ. Christians and Muslims are the same religion and it’s a generational copy of Jewish.
I do not have to tolerate speech that calls for my extermination, nor am I required to respect or be polite to my would be executioners – religion pointing to the rudeness of their victims demonstrates lack of ability to cope with irony or understand non-literalness.you defend what you agree with. learn to think more critically.
