Not a clear day

by: Timothy W. Shire
As Kevin points out in his story on periodic maintenance, a person needs to be careful about what they wish for. In this case what if you really could see into the future and predict what would happen?

Tim's Tip of the Day

Don't try this alone. We are at our best when we work together, share experiences and learn from each other. Being a hermit is a form of solitary madness yet many people fail to realise that even with other people they are essentially taking the hermit path when they do not open themselves up to others or share themselves with others. Social beings we are and shall always be.

Ensign Notes

The way this web site is organised visitors often do searches and enter the site thinking that the story they found is a web site in itself which leads to some interesting exchanges. A fellow tried to place an order for a large storage tank two days ago and today we have a guy looking for help in fixing up a car and another seeking his fortune.

Periodic maintenance required
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: Kevin McIntyre
So a person grows long hair, well its a little more complicated that it appears and as Kevin explains, it requires looking after and the problems it creates.

Neat Car - 1956 Plymouth
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: J. Stanley
The writer did not tell us where he is from but he included a picture and a plea for assistance so this one is for car enthusiasts to take a look at and perhaps someone will know and answer to Mr. Stanley's problem and give him a suggestion.

Today's Rule of Law and the Big Brains of Crony Capitalism
Wednesday, February 12, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Mario's story today is more of an introduction than a story in itself as he has set out a list of web references that both support and define the problem that threatens to overwhelm the quality of life for us and our neighbours.

Minister Manley, tear a page out of Canadian History!
Wednesday, February 12, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
This might surprise you, but Canada was founded upon a principle of having lower taxes than the country to the South of us. Each of the various Canadian taxes of today were copied from the American tax system as it evolved.

Ensign Watch - letters
Monday, February 10, 2003
It is hard to get time to include short email messages into the "letters" page. Today we had three messages, one from Paula Lake, another from Deborah Patterson and one from Oscar Choate.

On Thursday in the story "signs" it was mentioned how the snow is gradually accumulating. Here are some pictures of Tisdale and area as the winter develops.

The WebCam Saga
Friday, February 7, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
During the Christmas holiday number three son proposed a webcam project for this website and so began in motion a process that has been typical of my projects, one of epic proportions. Presently you will need to click on "refresh" to see the next picture but they are posted one every thirty seconds.

by: Timothy W. Shire
Though there are many topics of great importance to this part of the world the number one topic is and always will be, as long as we continue to depend so heavily upon agriculture, and that is the weather. The weather matters and there is hope.

Colin''s Case
Thursday, February 6, 2003
by: Chris Blackman
Chris Blackman was impressed with the United States Secretary of State's presentation to the United Nations Security Council yesterday as he felt the information about links to terrorism were the most chilling and reason enough for Canada to join with the United States in its war.

Gaining Clarity in the world that really exists
Wednesday, February 5, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Since the development of language it is pretty certain that the constant wonder to every living person is "just how much of what we think is happening really happening?" We do not answer this question but poke around at the problems it causes for us all.

A canal skate would be good for everyone’s health
Wednesday, February 5, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
The First minister's conference on health care got underway last night and by today five of the provinces are threatening to pull of the talks. Walter Robinson admonishes the first ministers urging them to quit playing games and sort out the issue that Canadians have declared their number one priority.
