I sometimes look back at old Coffeetalks just to get a chuckle on how some things have changed since I started these commentaries in the late 1990’s. On this day in 2004, December 13th 13 years ago, I talked about cell phone usage and how Canadian respondents in a survey said they spend 49 minutes per day talking on a cell phone. However, the question was what was the perception of how long we talked daily.
I want to begin today by saying that I was away last week visiting my parents in Victoria. I also want to say that I don’t recall ever attending an annual event in Saskatoon called Boys’ Lunch Out put on by the Progress Club.
My husband calls me a socialist Liberal with right wing tendencies. I’m just sharing that to give you context. There is a petition doing the rounds on Facebook and I rarely sign petitions plus I always verify what seem to be outrageous claims being spread regardless of whether it is an individual, organization or government. It indicates the Government of Canada is removing any reference to female genitalia mutilation not being allowed in Canada from the Citizenship Guide.
At the rate we’re going Vegas is going to start taking over/under odds on when next Justin Trudeau cries on national television. You are the Prime Minister. Get a hold of yourself, man up, whatever you want to call it, stop blubbering on national TV!
You know what makes me feel all Christmassy? Hearing the musical sounds of the season helps of course but its more the Christmas lights adorning people’s homes when you drive around after dark. I’m glad to see a number of our neighbours houses lit up this year and I wish more people would do it. The lights give you a nice, warm feeling when you see them.
