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.
