Tim's Tip of the Day

The Canadian dollar was expected to reach parity with the US dollar mid 2011 but it will do that in a few days as the US is printing money it does not have to prop up its economy and currency around the world are fighting to hold down their value. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Find of the day

Who's on Forbes most powerful women?
Trend setter Michelle Obama tops the list with Lady Gaga at 7 and Ellen DeGeneres at 10. The list considers influence, wealth, power and leadership so it is no surprise to find Killary Clinton, Australia's prime minister and Germany's chancellor on the list for this year.

Happenings In Tisdale:

The mystery of fall
October 5, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: It happens every year, fall arrives and yet every year it seems remarkably different. Perhaps its the sequence, maybe its the intensity but there is a mystery in this seasonal change from summer to winter. Is it the regrets of a summer that just didn't work out or the anticipation of yet another winter. What ever it is we need to check it out both visually and in our minds.

September 28, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: It was a truly spectacular fall this year but fall is a fleeting thing that doesn't last long as today's wind cleared away most of the remaining coloured leaves with only the shrubs still showing lots of colour.

Upgrading borrow pit to trout pond
September 22, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: About a decade or more ago the borrow pit east of Tisdale on the north side of highway #3 was stocked with trout and during the summer dedicated fishing folk could be seen trying to catch one. But the fish were unsustainable and this spring the pond was pumped empty and this fall it is being modified.

Registry means proceeding with facts rather than from ignorance
September 16, 2010
by: Eugene Parks

Victoria, British Columbia: Its the talk on every news show on radio and television as the a private members bill and the Federal government are determined to get rid of the long gun registry. All but three of Canada's police chiefs want the registry to be maintained because it is information that police can use to determine if a threat is possible with an individual.
Things are wet
September 14, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Wet spring, wet summer and now wet once again as we go into fall. Crops not planted, those crops that were put in the ground grew poorly and many ploughed under now what crops that have been swathed and are awaiting harvest are soaking in the field. When looking for a bright side rice comes to mind but it has been to cold for that to have grown maybe farmers should consider wild rice for next year.
The age of intolerance
September 3, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Given the nature of the last century there is really nothing new about the present. What is so hard to take is that clearly we as a people should be over this sort of thing as we allow our selves to move forward toward a brighter and more enlightened future, but instead we seem doomed to relive the age of the reformation while simply renaming the Spainish inquisition.
Positive alternatives to spending billions on war planes
September 2, 2010
by: Joe Hueglin

Niagara Falls, Ontario: The most important thing about being a soveriegn country is to determine what is best for your people and the country's collective aspirations of itself as a nation. We have to question what we want to be and then set forth a plan to achieve that goal. Is Do we as a nation need to comment billions of dollars to owning 65 aircraft to fight in an environment where manned aircraft may be totally obsolete?
