The Littlest


SO cute.

Monster Whitetails

Be nice, and get your better half a free issue to "Monster Whitetails".

Cajun Night & BBQ buffet

July 4th Ye Olde Argyler Lodge is having a BBQ buffet from 5 to 9pm. $15.95 per person. Also planning a Bonfire and marshmallow roast at 8:30, weather permitting of course, which doesn't give us much hope these days.

And there's a Cajun night at the Ye Olde Argyler Lodge. It's on Saturday July 11th, from 5 to 9pm. Local entertainer Simon LeBlanc will be playing, and the menu has lots of neat stuff like Gumbo, Jambalaya, Dirty Rice, Something Blackened, coffee, tea and dessert for $19.95 per person. Reservations can be made at 643-2500. Sounds like a nice evening.

If Loverboy isn't around, and the Cinnamon girl is single and available, I may have to call her . Oscar's mom said she was expected to make landfall someday soon.

Birdie

Get a free bird poster from the government. Help figure out what bird is crashing into your clean windows, or pooping on your chrome bumper. Actually its a bird identification poster for aircrafts. Just add to cart and check out.

Trojan

Trojan condoms would like to send you a free sample. The website is very strange indeed. Don't turn up the volume too much if you have children around, as they'll be wondering what you are up to. If your hubby is around, crank it up.

Rainy weather & rainy hearts

I actually am getting used to the rainy weather. What is it now? going on week # 3? I decided that I prefer the actual rain to the dark and cloudy sky. I figure the CEOs of Nova Scotia Power are behind this weather slump, and reaping the rewards as none of us can dry a thing on the clothesline.

Yes, our very own weird but talented M. Jackson has bought the farm, so they say. (or amusement park..lol) I had no TV over the weekend, as I was away camping, so I missed all that coverage. Darn. And Farrah lost her battle to cancer I also briefly heard. Hard to die on the same day as Micheal and expect proper news coverage. Hope her talent, and hair style don't go unmentioned in these next few days. I am not going to either funeral as I have a pedicure appointment.

Honesty


One of my favorite songs... Billy Joel's Honesty.
I sang this at a Karaoke in Cuba once. Bad song choice really. No worse though than when I sang Hey Jude in Bahamas. I thought it would never end. Right mom? Haha.

Kiss my Face

Kiss my Face has a free sample for you. (Unlike the hair extensions that were on my blog the other day. Heard from a reader that they wanted money for shipping from her)
Denkaku company will send you a sample of Kiss my Face Aroma therapeutic Anti-Stress Shower/Bath gel. Nice and short order form.

Pubic Preference

Yes, it's warm and muggy out. No better time to talk about pubic hair.
In a survey of 280 women, these results were found:

39% shave all pubic hair,
29% shave only the sides, give it a nice tidy look
19% leave it "au naturel", "the jungle"
1% don't remove it, but dye it instead
13% carefully style down there
I can tell you one thing,... I am not part of the 1% result. Dyeing the hair on my head is enough of a commitment.

Most popular styles are the triangle, the landing strip, and the Brazilian cut.

171 men were asked what they preferred , they replied:

37% No hair at all, nothing, nada.
4% A funny design (arrows, stars, flowers and hearts)
13% A jungle. “The Last Tango in Paris” looks
20% A landing strip or a metro ticket
21% Whatever she wants
5% I don’t care as long as I have a woman.

Pubic hair obviously has a purpose. I always believed that pubic hair holds a scent that we use to become attracted to one another. The more we sweat, the more of this "sexual scent" the body gives off, and the pubic hair area holds this scent.

So my advice to all the single ladies: put your razor away, and get sweaty.

We all love books, but darn, they are so expensive. Chapters / Coles has a sale on right now. From June 22 until July 1st, 2009 - buy 3 books and get one FREE! This applies to regular priced and bestseller books only.

Cursing the Checkout

Why does Sobeys (in Barrington especially) have 8 checkouts?

This isn't a riddle... It's a true question.

I have yet to go there when there is more than 2 checkouts open.
Are the other 6 spare ones incase of breakdown?
Poor guy with the 2 items, in line behind me with the 200 items.
Had to be nice and let him go first. Even the under 10 items checkout was closed. They don't charge 5 cents for bags, but maybe if they did, they could hire additional staff. So-bey-it

Real Feel

Today's weather info at Reykjavik is: (and it's almost 10am. )
Temperature :
7 ºC
Real Feel :
8 ºC
Weird... the real feel is a degree higher. Usually our "real feel" temp is lower due to wind chill.
Regardless, it's a little cool.

OK Redneck


I found something of great interest for you. There is actually Canadian Redneck Games. They start this coming weekend! Since you are still a limping Redneck, and almost ready for the Home, you can at least watch, if you can't participate. They have cool activities such as Hub cap hurl, armpit serenade, and redneck horseshoes as seen in this photo. It all takes place in Harriston. Ontario.http://www.canadianredneckgames.ca/

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day! One of my favorite father quotes is " it takes someone special to be a dad, anyone can be a father" ... or something like that.
I am a big "Cheers " fan. Here's a conversation between Coach and Norm:

Coach: Norm, how come you and Vera never had any kids?

Norm: I can't, Coach.

Coach: Gee, I'm sorry Norm.

Norm: I look at Vera. I just can't.

So accommodating

Customer is King they always say... and that is likely what was behind the newphie campground owner and his short quick witted reply.

" If your group speaks Acadian Spanish we may be able to help. "

5th annual Tern Festival

~~The Musée acadien in West Pubnico will host its 5th annual Tern Festival,the weekend of June 26-28. Weather permitting, a two hour boat tour willplace on Saturday afternoon June 27. The two hour boat sail in Lobster Bay will visit Brothers Island, colony of Roseate Terns,Ram and Argyle Islands, wind farm and aquaculture site. Birding enthusiasts want a chance to ~~see the two tiny islands about 1 km west of Lower West Pubnico, which represent the largest and the most stable population in Canada of the endangered species, the Roseate Tern and IBA designated them an Important Bird Area in 1999. .... Yes, right in our backyard.

Sleepless in Lower West

Mom was yawning today. She didn't sleep much last night. My dad has always gotten up to eat at night. Last night he got up, and mom thought she heard him opening the patio door, so she got up. Afraid he was being senile, or sleep walking, she figured she should check. No , he was getting the toaster out. He was hungry for toast. She went back to bed. He made and ate 2 toasts, but was still hungry. So, he made 2 more, while mom is back to sleep. Once more, her sleep is interrupted. This time by the smoke detector, as the toast is burning. I think he needs a granny flat.

Relay for Life

Volunteered a bit of time tonight at the Relay for Life, giving my sis-in-law a helping hand. It was very nice and somewhat overwhelming. Saw the luminaries I had bought, and watched my dad-in-law and some friends walk the survivor walk. I spoke to Oscar's grammie and she said she was a dedicated blog reader. That's good to hear. Hate to have my blog efforts go unnoticed. I look forward to seeing the cinnamon girl once again. The night was all so touching. I proudly wore a bandanna for the multiple myeloma cancer that took my sweet brother's life. I really miss him.

Letter I wrote to the Newfie Doctor


As some of you may know, the newphie doctor has a campground that he manages during the summer, close to his home town. What a nice little change from the everyday humdrum. I decided to make an inquiry to his campground. He has tricked us plenty, and told us tall tales, all while delivering excellent health care. If I know him, he will have a smart alec reply, which I will share.


Dear *****

We are looking for accomodations, for our tents. We have 24 tents and need a nice campground such as yours for the entire month of August.
We are working with a group of troubled Spanish speaking teens aged 14 to 17, and as part of our action plan, we decided that taking them camping for the first time would be a great way to introduce them to nature, and water, and to live respectfully with one another for a change.

I do hope you can accommodate us all.

Noah and the Lord

Since it's giving so much rain, I thought we could all benefit from Bill Cosby's version of Noah and the Lord in the inital planning of building that ark.

Protest

There have been some protest lately in Reykjavik. Even a couple this week. They are mad because the goverment has agreed to pay the Icesave fiasco ,in England and Holland.And that will hurt the goverments budget for many years.The interests involved are about 5 % and the total sum is around 650 billion krona. I read many tourists have been watching them , and it may become a tourist attraction.
I looked on the internet for photos. I was not so interested in the protest, but wondering what they wore for their summer clothing. Saw everything from Lopi sweater, some scarves, some bare legs, mostly light jackets. They aren't too fierce with the protest, maybe they will step itup a bit for our visit.

Bingo Flubber

I was tickling the boys and son #1 asked if I had Bingo flubber???
" Oh my God mom, you don't know what Bingo flubber is?"
Well I didn't know. Does everyone know? Bingo flubber is the loose skin under your upper arms that shakes when you lift your hand and wave it while hollering Bingo !
" Everyone calls it that Mom".
Consider the lesson taught. Children sure do teach us parents a lot.

Hoping to get groped ?

If so, hop on the train in Tokyo. According to the news around 2,000 people were arrested for groping in 2007, on crowded trains during the rush hour. While there have been many cases of groping, there are many false cases. Many women taking the crowded train go on women-only carriages during the rush hour to avoid gropers.
Now, the fear of being accused of groping, is causing men to asking for carriages reserved for men only as well. But the idea hasn't been well received. Weird. Look at the picture. I would rather have the young guys' left hand cupping my breast that having my face 4 inches from his sweaty armpit.

Bye Bye Birdie

" You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille" . ... that's kinda what the conversation should be between the "CRAFT" woman from Clare and the little birdie that has been infatuated with her lovely chrome bumpers. ( That almost sounds sexy).
I read that you can try a rubber snake on the bumper, or buy a mirror tile and place it somewhere nearby, like the outside wall of your garage.

No one likes to be shit on.

The Sailor

So the sailor is getting close now. Reporting cool New England temperatures. Ah, we feel for you. Obviously your improvised gas tank system is working well. You are a smart one. Send us some more photos and your latest log entries to entertain us.

Dear Dad


Here are a couple eco-friendly gift ideas for your dad on his day ( It's Sunday... hurry)


1. A Fruit tree.... now here's a gift that just keeps giving. Not only will the fruit tree provide oxygen, it will also yield some organic tasty treats. This gift is also cost friendly.


2.There are eco-friendly golf balls. Really, it's true. Eco-Friendly Golf Balls are made of 100% renewable materials.....meaning that every material can be recycled. So if your ball gets lost in the woods forever, it will biodegrade and you would be out about $27 bucks. (The price may influence him to straighten out his game.)

Today is Iceland’s Independence Day

~~Every year on 17th June Iceland celebrates its 1944 independence from Denmark.
This year is the country’s 65th year of full independence.
The day begins with speeches and parades and continues with family fun, live music, street performers and a long list of activities.
The younger generations consider last night, the 16th, as among the year’s biggest party nights – but it’s back to work tomorrow and Friday.
Wherever you are in the world, Happy Independence Day from Iceland~~

Leadership ?

Wake up new NDP government! Give money to Dept of Highways to send their managers for a leadership awareness seminar. I have the phone number. I'd like to see their LSI's ! A little more aggression and the hard working sign holder wouldn't be accompanied by a grown man, laying half in the ditch, donning a hard hat, and doing "She-loves-me, She-loves-me not," with the daisies.

Workshop Woes


Mrs. Brian and I spent 2 days at a workshop in Bunny Land. Overwelming stuff we learned, and now feeling a bit burnt out from it all. Had a few good laughs, after all, if you can't laugh at yourself, what good are you?

What good are you?.... there's a good topic of conversation.

Life was so simple when everyone could be divided into 2 groups. The "doers" or the"dreamers", (or "Jekyll" and "Hyde", if that's more suitable for some lingering in the red zone).

happy Birthday Mrs. Saulnier


Happy (big number) Mrs. Saulnier. Hope your dad gets well soon.

Men's TV

Men are so sophisticated. I watched a bit of Men's TV with Loverboy. He was laughing so much I figured it must be good. They were showing the most annoying women men have to deal with. In second place was the woman who is selling single roses at a bar, and stops at a couples table ( and it's their first date and he doesn't really like her, but the pressure is on). In first place was the mother. To quote them " you caused her tremendous pain in her vajayjay, and in return she's going to be a real pain in your a** for the rest of your life."

Nice, real nice. Gimmee the clicker and put HGTV on.

Secret Meeting


So BiBi and I had a secret meeting today behind the big fence. Well, maybe it's not so secret anymore. Spoke of travel, 22 lb suitcases, and buzzcuts. Had a nice cup of kaffi thanks to her butler.

Oh Lord it's hard

Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble, and even harder to be beautiful these days.
Check out this website, where they tested ingredients in more than 41,000 products against 50 definitive toxicity and regulatory databases, making it the largest integrated data resource of its kind. It then provides a hazard rating for each product. Skin Deep is managed by researchers at the Environmental Working Group and is a non-profit website.

So enter your brand shampoo, or makeup, and see how you measure up.

Icelandic lesson # 1

Learn the Icelandic Alphabet:
►►► A Á B D Ð E É F G H I Í J K L M N O Ó P R S T U Ú V X Y Ý Þ Æ Ö ◄◄◄
►►► The Icelandic alphabet has 32 letters ◄◄◄

To start learning Icelandic, some pronunciation tips for Icelandic phrases:
a = like a in father
e = like e in test
i, y = like i in little
u = like French u in tu
ö = like French eu in neuf
æ sounds like eye
ð = like th in weather
þ = like th in thorn

Code Purple


If Sid the kid doesn't get his hands on the stanley cup tonight, and the sky doesn't produce any sunshine soon, the hospitals will be overrun with a bunch of Vitamin D deficient & depressed people.

Nice website

I went through the entire website for Suzanne's photography .
It's very nice indeed and worth a visit. Even the music was good!

Sears

So Sears must be feeling the recession pinch. They have changed their ways, at least for now. No more $3 shipping and handling charge. And no more telephone call from the Sears robot to tell you that your order is ready for pick up at the store in Pub-ni-co.

Feminine Protection

While browsing the feminine protection aisle the other day, I realized how unrealistic all this has become. We have some with wings, no wings, long, extra long, super thin, super absorbent, fights odours, baby powder scent, no scent, individually packed, ultra thin, overnight, flexible, ultra thin light, ultra thin maxi, for thongs, leak protection, quilted, curved, and let's not forget the petite super long. Come on now, isn't a petite super long, a regular maxi no wings? What happened to plain old maxi and mini pads. My God, we women can complicate things. It's easier to buy a car, than pick up a package of pads.

Period


All this pad talk reminded me of something Howie Mandel once said. He and his wife were going out to a fancy event. She looked beautiful and he thought to himself while admiring her," there she is, beautiful , having fun, and I know she just started her period, yet she puts on a great face, and braves it all" He said if men had periods ( picture this) A friends comes over with his fishing rod on Saturday to pick up his best friend. The friend has his period. He would say" Are you crazy! I can't go fishing ! I can't go anywhere ! I'm bleeding from the crotch !"
