If you run into the Mayor, make sure you com­pli­ment him on his re­lent­less cam­paign through two gov­ern­ments and four, (or was that three?), Al­berta pre­miers, for over 6 mil­lion dol­lars in money for a re­newed at­tack on flood preven­tion in the val­ley. Have to com­pli­ment him on keep­ing up the quest on be­half of cit­i­zens, and, though we have to put up some of the funds our­selves, this will go a long way to help­ing this nag­ging prob­lem of flood zones.

The Mor­rin Ag So­ci­ety is hold­ing a fundrais­ing dance with one of our fa­vorite bands the Chev­elles at the BCF on Satur­day, April 16th. They play some great mu­sic for all ages, and if you like to dance, they don't come any bet­ter. Plan to at­tend.

Ran into Daryll Romeo the other day and he was telling us the story of how Diane out­smarted him last sum­mer.

Seems she was al­ways nag­ging him to mow the lawn and she hit on a sneaky new way to an­noy him. Daryll got home one af­ter­noon and found her out cut­ting the grass her­self with the new power mower. She was, in short, sham­ing him be­fore the whole neigh­bour­hood.

Fu­ri­ous, he took over and fin­ished the job. When he put the mower away, he dis­con­nected the spark plug so as to make sure Diane wouldn't be able to pull such a stunt a se­cond time.

Sev­eral weeks went by and again he came home only to find her out mow­ing the lawn again.

"There was some­thing wrong with the mower," she told him, "but I called a re­pair man and he fixed it. And he only charged $100.00."

An­other date to note on your cal­en­dar is Satur­day, April 9th, again at the BCF, for the An­nual Golf Club

Din­ner and Auc­tion. Al­ways a great evening, this is one of the club's ma­jor fundrais­ers, and peo­ple who go will dine on an ex­cel­lent meal pre­pared by Chef Peter, and then get to bid on some great golf items, and lots of oth­ers not so golf re­lated.

Don't re­ally watch many Os­car nights, but was in­ter­ested in host Chris Rock's open­ing mono­logue, and how he would han­dle the con­tro­versy that came about when no black ac­tors were nom­i­nated in any cat­e­gory.

Rock is a mas­ter­ful co­me­dian in his own right, but al­though his shows are laced with pro­fan­ity, he pulled off the MC's job in ex­tra­or­di­nary fash­ion, and it al­most seemed like the con­tro­versy gave him a whole new bunch of ma­te­rial. Very funny, and he made it work.

Also en­joyed the tal­ent of Lady GaGa, in­tro­duced by U.S. Vice-Pres­i­dent Joe Bi­den, and their com­bined ef­fort to bring aware­ness about abused young peo­ple. Very mov­ing, and such a per­for­mance by her. Many spe­cial mo­ments, es­pe­cially the ap­pear­ance of

Buzz Lightyear and Woody, and three of the Min­ions.

Well done Hol­ly­wood.
