Peter Coade retires

Peter Coade,CTV Atlantic's weather man for the last 17 years is retiring ,he did his last show tonight.I wish him all the best in his new endeavours but will really miss him giving the weather on Live at 5 and Steve Murphy's news. He was very accurate and always had good predictions.I will find it interesting to see who replaces him hopefully it will be someone just as good.

Giant spider web

This is pretty cool,even though I am not a big fan of spiders,I know how pretty a spider web can be shining in the sun.I can understand why some people won't go near it but even though I don't like spiders up close if I lived near by I would have to see it.

Liberals talk about economy

I am glad to see something from the liberals about the economy,hopefully they will soon come out with some more ideas,so people can see what they stand for.

Vivian Cash book

This looks like an interesting book.

Parliament buildings to be renovated

I am glad to see some renovations will be done on 24 Sussex drive and the parliament buildings,I know people sometimes complain about politicians spending money on themselvess but the these buildings really belong to all Canadians not just the current occupants.

The fact that 24 Sussex is so inefficient when it comes to energy is also a concern for me and I hope it's rating can be improved.

Cape Jourmain centre

I am glad to see the province stepped into keep the centre open until October.

Man kills girl friends snake

This story made me sad,I don't really like snakes my self but that a person would kill some ones pet when they knew the other person loved it, just to get revenge or because they were angry is beyond me.I don't see how anyone could stand to bite a snake anyway he must have had quite a few drinks to do something so stupid.

Conservative ad claims

This doesn't look very good even if it wasn't against the law which remains to be seen.

Blueberry season slow

The blueberry season is being slowed down by the weather this year. The place in this article must be a huge farm with all the people that come there to u-pick.I think the type of berries they have are the large cultivated ones I see sometimes in the stores,I don't really care for them much preferring the wild ones.

Wild blueberries also seem to be off to a slow start,I was trying to get a couple of boxes like I usually do and a few for a friend that wanted some and they weren't available until today.Now that I have got them and since it is a very rainy day I think I'll go and make a pie.

Holiday shopping

I agree Sunday shopping should be allowed but I don't think there should be any on holidays,
everyone deserves a day off now and then.As far as I know is no shopping on holidays in New Brunswick and according to my count there are only 7 or 8 a year anyway so I don't see why people can't do without shopping for a few days a year and get what ever they need on the other 357 days available to them.

Top diplomat critizes coverage

Sometime it seems as if some people have learned nothing from the past.The a big part of the problem with sex abuse in the church was all the secrecy and trying hide things and move abusers from one place to another.

Yellow berries

These berries can be found in New Brunswick to if you know where to look but I mostly pick blueberries and blackberries,which will be ripe soon.My mother uncle picked them when he was young and they always referred to them as yellow berries.I have seen them also at Kouchibouguac and down at Escuminac out on the peat bogs where they like to grow but have never picked very many.

No humans on earth

This article is quite interesting but a little scary to.I found it on foot to the fire 's blog

Sandmonkey loses his grandmother

Rantings of a Sandmonkey was my favourite blog until he decided to stop blogging in May.He has recently posted again with the sad news of his grandmothers death.I am sure she was a great person and did many great things for people in her life.

Another article in the Daily news

Some of the comments on this article are really miserable.I can understand some people are against same sex marriage and they are welcome to have their opinion even though I don't agree with it but some of these comments are really low and I don't know why some people can't state their thoughts and still show some respect for themselves and others.

The wedding

An article in the chronicle Herald.

Antibacterial soaps

I have alway had concerns about the use of antibacterial soaps and this study seems to confirm some of my suspicions.I think now a days people are to concerned about germs when a little bit of dirt isn't going to hurt them.I know every one likes to practise good hygiene but some people just seem to take it to the extreme.

Local boy Brison to wed

Another article about Scott Brison,there seem to be a lot these days.

Sheep in the vineyard

A few months ago the sheep were cutting the grass now they are pruning the grapes.A very useful animal.

Scientist finds reptile print

The oldest know reptile print has been found on the bay of Fundy. It's amazing to think that these rocks have been there for 300 million years.

Charging for plastic grocery bags

I think this is a great idea,maybe it will encourage people to think more about the effect there habits have on the environment besides encouraging them to bring their own bags.I notice that more and more stores are starting to introduce cloth bags the latest being Wal-Mart

Scott Brison wedding

This is an interesting article about the coming wedding.

Changing your name

I think this is crazy ,changing your name at marriage should be personal decision and it should be allowed every where.We shouldn't just look at this issue from a women perspective though,a man should be able to take his wife's name as well if he wishes to do so.

Girl to go fishing

I am glad see that some people realize that fishing and other outdoor activities aren't just for men and boys.It's great to see that more women are choosing careers in things such as fishery's biology as well.

Scott Brison getting married

Scott Brison has always been someone I admired,he is getting married next Saturday so I wish him all the best.

Girls not allowed at day camp

The fact that they are holding day camp for only girls that features a spa and ones for only boys with outdoor activities isn't good in this day and age.These types of action reinforce gender stereotypes and elected officials should know better but this is the worst sentence in the entire article "They decided they would try just girls things for the girls and just boys things for the boys and see how it worked." this was said by the municipality's warden.I wish these people could see that going to the spa isn't just a girl activity and that there is no reason a man can't go to a spa and take good care of himself physically and that outdoor activities aren't just for boys especially now with many children over weight getting the fresh air and exercise is a good idea for everyone.

Kitten clubbed to dealth

I can't imagine how I would feel of something like this happened to my cats one of whom is sitting beside me as I write this post.What was going through those young peoples minds when they killed a defenseless kitten right in front of it's house while children watched.The poor girl that owned it must be devastated,it's hard enough to lose a pet any time but especially in such a cruel and unnecessary manner.The kitten must have suffered terrible pain in it's last minutes.

Zimbabwe situation

The situation seems almost hopeless in Zimbabwe these days but maybe things will soon start to improve as it doesn't seem they can get much worse.

Abandoned parrots

This is why people shouldn't buy a pet with out knowing it's needs and what they are getting into.

Cape Jourimain funding

Hopefully a way will be found to keep the visitors center open,when you go over to PEI they have such a nice spot right at the end of the bridge,we don't want people coming into New Brunswick to see nothing.If the center is able to stay open maybe some of the people that stop there will be convinced to spend some time visiting our other tourist attractions rather than just drive through.
