Tim's Tip of the Day

Listen up, this is a matter of life and death, your life and your death. Either we all get leaner or our days are truly numbered. Obescity is a leading cause of a whole string of life shortening conditions. Get yourself an appointment with a nutritionist, work out a programme and walk or get some active exercise five days a week. There is no magic formula, you have to sort this out for your body, but you owe it to yourself and those who love you. Not only will being thinner make you live longer it will make you live better.

Wascana Geese
Tuesday, June 3, 2003
by: Ole Loberg
We all know that Canada geese are social beings and we have observed how they live in pairs and feed alternately so one feeds the other stands guard, now we discover that their ability to work together far exceeds what one would expect of an animal with the brain the size of a walnut.

Saturday, May 31, 2003

Friday, May 30, 2003

Missed boondoggles
Thursday, May 29, 2003
by: Joyce Neufeld
As members of the Saskatchewan Party have been effectively identifying miss-spend money by the provincial government. But there have been other spending that is very questionable.

What a bummer of a day . .
Thursday, May 29, 2003
by: Rebecca Gingrich
Compound silly news that seems to illustrate the aimlessness of the federal government as it flounders about from one issue to another without fixing anything.
