Thunder Bay – Monday

Looks like the City of Thunder Bay is going to install traffic signal control loops at the intersection of Court and Bay Street.  The loop will be cut into the asphalt, the wire laid into the groove and then covered with asphalt. The wires will be connected to the traffic light control system. All this […]

The World – How Stupid Does NATO And Its Mainstream Media Lapdogs Think We Are?

How Stupid Do They Think We Are? “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Consumers of the print or electronic output of the League of Copy Typists […]

Thunder Bay – Sunday

I wonder why these buttons are not operational?  They were installed over a month ago.  Now they are being vandalized before they were ever used.  What is wrong with this city?  It seems like there is no rhyme nor reason why anything is done by our high salaried residents of City Hall.  They start construction […]

Thunder Bay – Canada Goose Is Edible. We Have Lots Of Them In Our Parks

Denver is capturing geese from city parks to be killed and given to hungry families Goose “management” has long been part of the parks department’s strategy to quell the population, but rounding them up and processing them for food is new for the city. Twice in the last week and a half, a group of […]

Thunder Bay – Saturday

Red sun this morning. OK, orange sun but red sun sounds more dramatic. Smoke from the forest fires north of the city gave the day an orange-brown tint today. I could have corrected that in post production but I left it. Trash in context More trash in context Yard sale Trash in context Trash. Notice […]

Thunder Bay – Friday

Always sad to see vehicles that some people might consider classics today are vehicles that I can remember just being cars and trucks. Cars and trucks that were parked in driveways in my neighbourhood. A new record. Vandalized before it was even operational. Always breaks me up when I see slivers of tiles were required […]

Thunder Bay – Thursday

Thinking that this apple was stolen from Renco Foods.  The thief  did not like the taste so the apple was tossed.  Nobody would pay money for a piece of fruit and then not eat it. Still no takers for the commercial space on the ground floor of the new DSSAB apartment building constructed near the […]

The World – How Much Does Health Care Cost In Japan? Hint: It Ain’t Free

Is Japan’s health care system something that we mind see here in the future? I cannot see how our free health care system we have in Ontario is sustainable.  Costs continually to rise while tax dollars that fund the system are becoming harder to come by.  Hence the annual provincial and federal budget deficits. The […]

Canada - Is The Chateau Laurier About To Be Ruined?

Canada – Is The Chateau Laurier About To Be Ruined?

This is something you would expect our high salaried residents of City Hall to do. Take a historic iconic structure such as Marina Park’s  CN Train Station and surround it with a dogs’s breakfast of architecture that have no thematic or design continuity. Architecture battle grips Canada’s capital amid fears the Chateau Laurier is about […]

The World – Dandelions Are The Best Indicators Of….

A change of pace today: The Mighty Dandelion. I like to let dandelions bloom (don’t cut them down) in an area of my yard until other plants start to flower.  Why?  Because the early season insects such as bees need them. Once there are other flowers for those insects to use, I can then cut […]
