The test that determines the worth of an art form, be it a painting, a song a book. The ultimate test is that of time. Good stuff lasts and is fresh years and decades later. Will anyone ever whistle a Britney Spears song fifty years from now?

"lead me not into temptation" the phrase presupposes that much of the time we have a choice between a proper and improper decision. What is surprising is that we go to such lengths to present arguments to ourselves and others as to why we made the improper decision.
November 5, 2001
Conformity is the curse of democracy, conformity is the curse of autocracy and conformity is a curse to an innovative society. Now you know all there is to know about Microsoft

If you want to feel better about all things you need to start within yourself and polish off some dreams and positive attitude. Your optimism will grow from your own good thoughts.
October 25, 2001
Of all the various fields of medical research I think the most benefit would come from improved understanding of nutrition. There is to much fad and not enough fact around and what we eat seems to be the core of our existence.
October 24, 2001
Things are not always what they seem, front page news in Tisdale's local paper is the opening of a student lounge in Arborfield. Is that really the top story of the day or is there a hidden message?
October 23, 2001
For those of you who haven't discovered this yet, taking a break will add more efficiency and let you get more done than plugging away at a project.

With these ridiculous post office scares it is about time we realised how antique and quaint the postal service is serving advertising almost exclusively. As of now send e-mail or fax, NO MORE PAPER.
October 16, 2001
Ignorance is actually a form of bliss and with the hysteria on television and radio lately, I recommend a large dose of ignorance. Cut yourself off from CNN for five days and see if you feel better.
October 15, 2001

October 11, 2001
In these times of rhetoric and news of war we must not lose sight of the principles on which our representational constitutional monarchy form of government was established.

Farmers solve your economic problems, take over all the other farms, all of them, borrow money to do it, mismanage your business and lay off as many workers as you can, then do a bad job of farming, claim your losses are caused by international problems and get the tax payers of Canada to hand out millions to reward your stupidity, it worked for Air Canada.
October 2, 2001

With a melt down in the computer/technology sector there is a serious danger of internal collapse to the extent that technical innovation may become something we knew of in the past.

Hay, North eastern Saskatchewan, North western Manitoba, lots of it, time for government to give a hand and assist with transportation to where it is needed.

Jumping to conclusions is the prerogative of journalists and pundits. A guy from Tisdale hears that 80 houses in Nipawin or on the market for sale and concludes everybody's leaving the town then he comes around a corner to discover a massive new condominium and realises their not leaving, just relocating.
August 1, 2001

July 27, 2001
There was once a time when all things seems to mean something, then came the Internet and all things seemed to have dissolved into "bitland". We are no longer sure of what is and what might be, only that we are all in this thing together forever lost searching and attempting to reach conclusions based on "to much information."

A week ago today the front page story of the Globe and Mail was how the CBC has embarrassed Canada in a Sunday morning interview with an actor pretending to be Jimmy Carter. This paper holds itself up as the nation's newspaper but its reporters and editors failed to get an April Fools joke.

Mario deSantis is not alone in his awareness that there is a growing body of evidence that government is acting against the will of the people.

The term "get it in writing" is simply no longer valid, without corroboration an agreement is not worth the paper it is written on. Large companies around the corner or National, construct their contracts to serve their interests and rarely reflect the intent or true nature of the agreement.
February 19, 2001
Have you ever notice how comforting it is for even rather negative things to happen but because they are predictable and expected it sort of tells you that things are okay. Example: President Clinton continues to be in the news for the same old reasons.

I hate to admit it but George Bush has placed the emphasis of his administration on Education, he is right to do so. The greatest achievements of any US president in the 20th century was that of Lyndon Johnson in his endeavours to better US education.
