We have finally landed on an asteroid, isn’t that great news? It is interesting that is for sure, they are having some glitches with the part that is supposed to make sure it stays attached, but pretty amazing stuff, given the Asteroid isn’t that big, and it is going quick quickly. Never has so much time been spent putting a dishwasher on a thing going real fast in space. Some concerns have arisen about whether it will be able to do a full rinse cycle.
I must thank my parents that they pushed me to get a University Education, after watching those two window washers at One World Trade dangling 69 stories up. I’d need to be paid a lot more than I currently make to do that job, but I guess there are folks who don’t mind that kind of risk in their day-to-day jobs (but I am not one of them).
Plenty of talk about the coming tax cuts in the next budget, whether they deliver, is another question, and whether the Public can be bought off or not (sorry that is a cynical view of politics (or is it?)). Maybe they will cut our EI premiums a little more? A few other carrots being tested via “leaks” from the government. Start paying down the National Debt would be a very good thing.
Sad to read of the deaths of two of my favorite supporting characters on TV. First Carol Ann Susi passed away this week, you may not recognize her name, but she was the voice of Howard Walowitz’s mother, “HOWARD!!!“. Wonder what they will do about this on the show? The second passing was Jovian the Lemur from ZooBooMaFoo, who would leap around on the show. Jovian died of kidney failure.
My Writings for Week Ending November 14th
Remembrance Day in Ottawa is always an awe-inspiring event, and this year it was that much more, truly astounding to see that many folks come out to say thanks to those who defend our rights and freedoms.
- We should all be partying like it is 2008 again, as Unemployment is at 2008 levels (according to Stats Canada), however one of my commenters questions the validity of the number, given he doesn’t count.
- I shy away from individual stock picking for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was How Class B Shares are defined for some companies.
- If you need something to read for Financial Literacy Month, I did a Book Review: Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting out of Debt , start with that.
