Hrm. If I ever have money, I think I will buy Marc a wolverine, and Beej a doxie. Let them do with them as they will.

And hurry up and get to the dark side of 30 with me, Beej. I need an excuse to not trust you

Hope everyone's days are going well. Nice day here, much driving, not as much work as I would have liked, but I did spend an hour being interviewed for the local paper. We have settled childcare, at least for next week, and maybe for the whole of the next 10 weeks. Interestingly, Elections Canada is hiring people to prepare for the next election (do they know something we don't?) and one or two other things have come up in the last 2 days of a more permanent nature, so maybe my wife will have work when this 10 week Census gig is over. That would make a rather large difference to our lives, in many ways, most of which are good. So fingers crossed.

Marc, I'm not one to read other people's sermons normally, although exceptions could be made. If you happened to be anywhere nearby, though, I'd have you in to read it in a heartbeat.

I see you are a quick study. You can trust Beej, even if you viciously disagree with him. Join me and your journey towards the truth will be complete. Or maybe paraphrasing the Emperor isn't such a good idea.

I see a friendly yet disagreeable future for us. What do you see?

Beej, I am sure that you could not round up 600 wolverines, so it is a moot point.

At the moment, a dirty kitchen. But somewhere in the near future I see us settling the question of who's outlook on life is superior over beer. Many, many beers. Possibly stretching over many years. Longer if we take breaks.

"If I ever have money, I think I will buy Marc a wolverine, and Beej a doxie. Let them do with them as they will." I would donate my wolverine to the Sierra Club so that could place him/her in the locale that most needed these endangered species. Dachshunds are the #6 dog in terms of AKC and CKC registrations in North America, so they are not endangered.

Matt, I have only been to Ottawa once and that was for a July 1st Canada Day celebration the year after I became a Canadian Citizen on July 1st, 1997. Still, maybe I could do a podcast/webcast sermon. In California, they have drive-in churches.

Your outlook on life is superior. My outlook on how things function is superior. Somewhere in between lies a happy and pleasant centrist. We should ridicule them and continue our discussion after they break down in tears.

Well said, indeed! Do you think we can find a centrist in Ottawa? Isn't non-partisan behaviour banned around here?

Beej, this sounds like the discussions that raged when I was a boy growing up in New York City -- Who was the best center fielder -- Willie Mays of the NY Giants, Mickey Mantle of the NY Yankees or Duke Snider of the Brooklyn Dodgers? Stephen Jay Gould once said that if this could even be solved, then there were no secrets of the universe that could not be answered.

Good question. People do give me funny looks when I criticise and complement government on different issues. Maybe there's a bylaw I dont' know about.
