Tim's Tip of the Day

The whole of your world is inside your head. Every experience, every understanding and all reality. It is this simple factor that makes self awareness and individuality so much a part of the world and is the reason organised behaviour between humans is not an easy thing.

Ensign Notes

Ensign did not post yesterday, it was a day of rest.

More than helicopter motor stalled
Monday, March 3, 2003
by: Jeff Harwood
It is difficult enough trying to make sense out of this world but Jeff Harwood has the difficult task as a teacher in Brandon, of helping children gain to tools to reason. Today, Jeff points out to us the cruel foolishness of the Federal government when it comes to equipping those who volunteer to defend and serve their country.

Bush's crony capitalism is putting money before our lives: It is not the time for the U.S. to attack Iraq
Monday, March 3, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The people of Turkey have spoken through their parliament to oppose the use of their country to launch an attack on Northern Iraq by the United States. But it should be clear to all this is not the time for a war.

The Greenwater Report
Monday, March 3, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Well the snow is building up and all the better as the park continues to host snow mobile derby one after another. Gerald straightens out a mistake on the Perigord rumage sale and celebrates the recognition of a local hockey hero.

Time to reshape priorities
Monday, March 3, 2003
by: Greg Butler
Greg Butler from Calgary makes his first contribution to this web site as he expresses his concern that the cancelling of the EH-101 order not only cost a penalty but continues to incur ever increasing costs to keep the 28 old Sea Kings in the air, even this crashed one will be rebuilt and returned to service.

March came in like a lion
Saturday, March 1, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
A howling wind heralded the arrival of March with snow, blowing snow and then we awakened this morning to -32ºC temperatures.

The epitome of the Rule of Law: Chris Axworthy and George W. Bush
Saturday, March 1, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Former Saskatchewan minister of moves into his new office and Bush wants the US military to move into Iraq. We have to wonder what is becomng of law and appropriate behaviour.

Not Meeting Safety Standards
Saturday, March 1, 2003
by: Derrall Bellaire
Excuses have a limited time life and after ten years few Canadians are able to accept the ones given by the Government about the helicopters that will not be availlable for perhaps two more years.

Bush's absurd war against Iraq
Friday, February 28, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Carolyn Parrish said words that she later apologised for but what the US president wants to do is not something that afterward you can say "oh sorry about that". Mario deSantis has brought us some compelling thoughts on this issue and as usual he accompanies his remarks with six references that need to be considered as we consider what Americans themselves are saying about the whole situation.

Kevin says "Clancy"
Friday, February 28, 2003
by Kevin McIntyre
So many books and nothing to read. In a world of "over choice" we often need a little help in selection and Kevin McIntyre comes to the rescue to recomment an author and his latest book.

Thursday, February 27, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire

Flying Dog
Wednesday, February 26, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Keeping in shape for man or beast is a constant struggle. But several times a day this fellow gets a work out and can reach an altitude of more than six feet.

Wednesday, February 26, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
This month's meeting saw an award to a distinguished member and we have this month's theme contest images about "unfinished."

Budget 2003: Chrétien is hopefully the last of the big time spenders
Tuesday, February 25, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Last week there was considerable shouting about the 2003 budget now its time to think it over and look carefully at what the government plans to do with the taxes for the next five years. Walter Robinson is fairly critical of a government which in the past has paid little attention to what it does with its money. This story has links to the complete budget.

Canada Loses Face on World Affairs
Tuesday, February 25, 2003
by: Derrall Bellaaire
We need to realise that we must as a country respect ourselves enough to uphold honour and that which is just. Mr. Bellaire puts clarity into the issue that is being tossed into the air like a tennis ball by Washington. You will need QuickTime to hear the short audio clip with this story.
