Tim's Tip of the Day

For every endeavour that one undertakes there is a built in success and failure factor. Each and every thing we attempt is on a scale and the sooner you realise that every time at bat will not result in a home run the better off you will be. Those who settle for doing their best are happy people.

Ensign Notes

Today we hear and interesting story from the sea by Vancouver's Jeff Smith. This is his first contribution to this site.

Back into the tar pit
Friday, February 21, 2003
by: Jeff Smith
From his perspective on the coast Jeff Smith tells us about the take over by Paul Martin's Steamship company of an Australia bulk cargo company that then fired the ship's crew and hire Ukrainian crewmen. Makes our country look bad and seems down right mean.

Dragger 32
Thursday, February 20, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
With the restriction of being able to move only his head an Aylsham man is using technology to rebuild a new life and career for himself.

Oil is becoming the only US's reason to wage war against Iraq
Thursday, February 20, 2003
The evidence is mounting that United States had boxed themselves into an energy corner some time ago and their course of action may not be a matter of choice but rather a necessity. This article has some outstanding references and it is worth your while to look these over.

Hummer H2
Wednesday, February 19, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Reports from the auto scene claim that the SUV is a long way from being dead with the hottest vehicle being General Motors civilian version of the American military four wheel drive ultra SUV. This one was spotted in Tisdale on Tuesday.

Not suppose to happen

Water break at the end of one of the streets that has been newly rebuilt.

Money alone inadequate
Tuesday, February 18, 2003
by: Mike Reilly
The time has passed and though we all recognise the importance of a sustainable medicare system our present course of improvement continues to be simply more money.

Bush unites the world
Tuesday, February 18, 2003
by: Mark Weisbrot
Though Americans seem to be still supporting their president, the rest of the world, especially the people in those countries that are considered allies of the United States are totally united in their opposition to war with Iraq.

February visit to Greenwater
Monday, February 17, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
This is not to replace Gerald Crawford's regular report, we should get that later this week as he is on vacation in Alberta, but yesterday we were out to the park and can share some pictures of the place with you today.

Family Things
Monday, February 17, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
A positive and encouraging scene at Greenwater Provincial Park as families share the activiteis and time together.

The securing of American Freedom in accordance to President Bush: The American military administration of oil in Iraq
Monday, February 17, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
With the Saudi's about to have the United States Forces exit their country the United States began plans to take over Iraq long before the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Is the Bush administration telling the truth?
Sunday, February 16, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The Picasso mural of the Basque village of Guernica that was bombed by the German airforce in 1937 symbolises the autrocity of war and it must never ever be repeated. The varasity of the US president needs to be tested as he and his nation move so clearly toward invading Iraq.

Democracy is a wonderful feeling
Sunday, February 16, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
With the world wide peace demonstrations it is time to reflect on what sort of system is at work here and who is speaking and who has the right to speak.

Getty-yup . . . Gee
Saturday, February 15, 2003
A team of horses doing chore work North of Tisdale this morning reminds us all of a time long in the past when all farm work was accomplished in this manner.

Saturday, February 15, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
With millions of people involved in peace marches around the globe and Mr. deSantis' two sons in the march in Winnipeg today its time to take a look at what American leaders have been saying about the prospect of war and peace.
