50 Millionaire…

Tonight’s Lotto Max jackpot is estimated to be approximately fifty million dollars, plus 30 additional prizes of one million dollars. I don’t buy lottery tickets on a regular basis but I couldn’t resist purchasing a ticket for this one.I know, I know, my odds are greatly reduced because the jackpot is so high and so many more people are buying tickets but I couldn’t resist.I could do so much good with fifty million dollars – not just for me, but for others as well. Let’s start with myself, friends and family: I would obviously be retiring early – is Monday soon enough for you? I would purchase my oceanfront house in Bonaire and a sweet boat – rigged for both diving and fishing. I would purchase J’s parents a nice condo, new vehicle and give them enough money to live comfortably. I would give J’s sister and brother enough money to pay off their mortgages. I would build my dad a cabin in the woods, buy him a new truck and give him enough money to live comfortably. I would set up a trust fund …

Spring Forward...

By March, signs of Spring have usually begun to make their appearance – warming temperatures, melting snow, longer days and more sunshine.  Such is not the case this year – winter is not letting go.  Unless you can count the Canada geese that are honking outside my office window and the smell of skunk in the air – those are the only signs that Spring may be in our future. We have now officially had almost 5 months of below freezing temperatures. No joke!  I plan on burning all of my winter sweaters when Spring finally arrives.  Yes, I know I’ll need them next year, but I’ll worry about that then.  They are gone!  No joke there either.  I hate them sooo much. I’ve packed on enough pounds this winter to easily get me through the next 3 winters.  I don’t even care. The last thing I’m thinking about is exercising or salads.  Comfort foods are the only things on my mind.  I’ll worry about weight loss in the Spring.  I’m only concerned about self-preservation at the moment.

Welcome to Toronto - You've Got to be Joking...

As the world has discovered, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is a joke and an embarrassment to every citizen of Toronto that he is meant to represent.Heck, he’s an embarrassment to me and I don’t even live there.  Now I understand, he's set to appear on Jimmy Kimmel and attend the Oscars - I guess all crack smoking, drunken baffoons can make it in Hollywood. As a Canadian, I am ashamed of his ongoing bad behavior.If Rob Ford was mayor of anywhere else in the world, the man would have been run out of town by now.  As a side note, I'm also ashamed of Justin Bieber, but that rant is for another day. Toronto was once thought to be a world-class city by some.However with Rob Ford at the helm, he makes all Canadians look ridiculous.In my opinion, he needs to step aside and crawl back beneath the rock from whence he came. Municipal elections will be coming up in October of this year and Rob Ford plans to run for the mayoral seat once again.If Torontonians are stupid enough to re-elect him, the…
