It’s on.

I have been in some state of a diet for years. Don’t eat, watch that. Careful. You sure you want to eat that. Remember Apollo 13? Remember when they stuff Gary Sinise into the simulator to work out the re-entry procedure in such a way that it doesn’t go over its voltage?

Stay Home: The Real Simple Answer To Traffic Problems

Lots of hand-wringing going on about rapid transit and how to move people around the CRD. The $4-million report suggested LRT. It's likely going to be a painful prospect and we will opt for the much cheaper "rapid transit" along the Douglas corridor. We should all just work from home.

It's been one of those days. A number of people have come to be with the same sort of a problem: money. With lots of money, they would be able to make their short term problems go away. I don't have money but I have some web links. These could be opportunities. They could be a place to pick up some cash. Or, they could be mirages. I don't suggest that you check out these sites. I suggest that they are there.


I wish to forever live on Franday. And I would like all my days to be Franday.
