Gst cut

I would much rather see income taxes cut or the money spent on a worthy program than a GST cut. I know that a GST cut will be barely noticeable to me as far as any savings.

Three year old survives plane crash

Although the loss of two lives is sad it is amazing that the little girl survived and that she was found in time.Search and rescue personnel are people I don't think about very much but they are very well trained and it good to know they are there to save lives when they are needed.

Teen gets out of jail

The fact this young man served 2 years in jail is disturbing and he could have served as much as ten which was the original sentence ,hopefully with the 5 year close in age exemption on the new age of protection this will never happen here.I can see that we may not want to encourage kids to have sex when they are so young and not that mature but I definitely believe that it is not a crime when no adults are involved and the ages are so close.

Bon Jovi plays at new arena

I have listened to Bon Jovi since I was a kid and still love there music,they are playing at a new arena in New Jersey this week.

Crazy rules for pet adoptions

Some of the requirements in this story are ridiculous,if we went by this no one or very,very few people would own pets. If they are going to turn down any one who works more than 6 hours a day how do they expect a person to feed and house themselves let alone pay all the expenses associated with owning a pet.

How often to wash

This is an interesting article on personal hygiene,I would like to read the book sometime.

Crime bil

Most of this stuff is just rehashed from last spring so the conservatives do seem to be playing games with this legislation and I don't see any reason not to support it.

Sobeys throws out food near best before date

This is an awful waste to throw out food that isn't gone bad.I can see if it's actually past the best before date but not if it's just close to it.

Not enought to pay the bills

This article is worrisome even though it is about the States not Canada .I often think about people in the developing world not having enough to eat but there are many people right in our own part of the world that go without or must get assistance and many of the families in this article are not what I would consider poor according to the amount they are making.

Live at 5-25 years

Live at 5,one of the shows I watch regularly has been on the air for 25 years.I can remember watch it with my father when I was very young and it was interesting to see many of the people that have been on it over the years appear on the special show tonight.Lennie Gallant one of my favourite singers also performed so I really enjoyed watching it this evening.

Gay seniors can face prejudice

This article interests me as I work in home care,I never though about gay seniors before and the discrimination they might face as they age and require more care.

I have been a fan of Martina Sorbara since her solo days,this article is alright but it really doesn't tell very much about the band.I don't really care who her father is and despite my interest in politics I was not aware until recently that her father was even a politician.Dragonette has a new album out recently and in my opinion it is great I have been listening to it every day since buying it from itunes.

Women talks about her life on the street

This article is sad and scary at the same time,the violence these women endure is terrible and the thought that girls as young as 13 are out on the street is almost worse.The system has definitely failed these young women some where,I don't know what the solution is or if making prostitution legal would solve any of them or not.

Blacky gets a home

One of my kittens that were dump off in the front yard in June finally got a good home today,it's taken us this long to get them tame enough for anyone to want them.I am hoping to get a home for one more of them(there are 2 left) and then I could keep Blondie(he is my favourite) as I am already keeping the mother and we have our old cat,who is 13 as well.

Blondie and Suspicious

I am glad Blacky got a home because I know I couldn't keep them all but I couldn't help feeling a little bit sad when I only put out three food dishes tonight.

Internet shut down in Myanmar

This is a disturbing development,they want to cut the country off completely from the outside world.

Getting methane from old garbage

Harvesting methane from old land fills is a good idea where it is viable,I wonder if there is anywhere this is done in New Brunswick or where it could be done.Hopefully in the future we will be producing less waste and this wont be necessary but until then at least something is being reused from the waste .

Confidence votes and the throne speech

I was think that the liberals should possibly support the throne speech depending on what was in it but if this is Stephen Harper attitude I don't think there is much point in doing so as there will be an election eventually if every vote is a confidence one except Afghanistan.

Changes for the Liberals

It will be interesting to see what changes there will be but I think it will take more than that to solve the problems in the Liberal party right now.We seem to have no vision at all and the people calling for Dion to resign must be crazy to think that would solve all the problems either,he might be a part of them but it's not all his fault or the fault of any one person and all the recent bickering is just making things worse.

Letting music fans set the price

I am not really a fan of Radiohead but this is a pretty cool idea,it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
