Not a great deal of news this week but I will make a few com­ments about some of the dumb things go­ing on in this prov­ince... would you be will­ing to have a stranger come in to your home to change your light bulbs? Much cheaper to buy your own and do the work your­self or have your neigh­bour do it. Ac­cord­ing to the Calgary Sun and Rick Bell’s col­umn, as of this past Satur­day, there were some 60,000 folk who had signed up for the “free” good­ies. Not only are they get­ting screwed in the ear, they think all this is a great idea. In my mind, the mil­lions spent for On­tario to come here and do this is not pro­vid­ing jobs for Al­ber­tans: which they said it was go­ing to.

On the sports scene, there was some great curl­ing at the Brier but the fi­nal on Sun­day was a big dis­ap­point­ment for Al­berta and Canada. Koe and com­pany couldn’t seem to get it to­gether and Mr. Koe didn’t seem to have much fire in his eye and it ap­peared to me that he thought he could win ev­ery game with his last rock. Sur­prise, sur­prise!

I hope ev­ery­one re­mem­bered to change their clocks on Satur­day night. It wouldn’t be good to be late for church. That hap­pened many years ago in Hanna and two fam­i­lies were late but we teased that they had timed it to ar­rive after the col­lec­tion had been taken.

Don’t put the snow shov­els and win­ter gear away just yet even though the forecast for this week is great. It’s just a few days and March is only half over. Not un­com­mon to have bliz­zard con­di­tions at the end of the month.

Re­mem­ber to wear some­thing green this Fri­day. St. Pat likely en­joyed a nip some­times too. Have a good week.

A pro­fes­sional will know what changes have been made for the 2016 tax­a­tion year, what works best for you and will make sure you are fil­ing the best pos­si­ble re­turn for you and your fam­ily.
