Autumn , United Kingdom, Beer Money, and #theBestFin4TheWeek

It’s currently autumn here in Ottawa and I’m excited to see the leaves changing color and feel the chill in the air. The Members of Parliament have returned to work for their 20-day session before Christmas and I’m sure there’s a lot of activity going on down on Rideau Street, with repairs being carried out on the Houses of Parliament and other buildings. However, what happens in the House of Commons remains a mystery to me. Fortunately, we also have a municipal election coming up and my lookalike Jim Watson is expected to win re-election, but I must admit, I’m not too fazed by that. I know that I need to lose some weight if I want to be mistaken for him again, along with shaving off my beard, but that’s not going to stop me from trying!

The United Kingdom remained together, but what will this mean in terms of powers given to Scotland, Wales and the Channel Islands? Should be an exciting bit of Political Flim Flammery, as what keeps happening with Quebec Sovereignty. Stay tuned; I am sure that will also get back on the front burner.

The Ottawa Senators sold the naming rights to Canadian Tire for the arena in Kanata, and then the Sens made a tremendous announcement this week. At the Canadian Tire Center (during the exhibition season at least), you will be able to pay for your concessions (including beer) with Canadian Tire Money! Suddenly Sandy McTire can buy me a brew for all the stuff I have bought at his store. In celebration, the Sens beat the Leafs twice, causing Leaf Nation to explode in a flurry of finger-pointing.
