There is a great deal of divisiveness in the world today, particularly in the US, and itís going to take some time and a lot of effort to heal. Good leadership makes a difference, as in New Zealand for example. I hope wiser heads prevail.

"But the vast majority of people, all really just want peace, their health, for family and loved ones, no one really enjoys hate. But it's so easy, and it only compounds. I see no reason to even attempt engaging those who refuse to have a conversation, merely spewing hate, vile nonsense of any political stripe really. I'll just leave them to their noble work "

A wise point, gt. Paix, mon ami.

As part of their early Black Friday sale, I ordered a chicken and an egg on Amazon.ca

I shall let you all know which arrives first.

I suspect you are referring to Point Roberts, an anomaly of people making decisions on borders that had no business being involved

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Po...4d-123.0568693

Point Roberts was a favourite of BC residents who wanted to buy cheap fuel and avoid the cost of having parcels shipped to Canada and paying for courier clearance fees. When we lived on the Lower Mainland I was a frequent visitor to "Point Bob".

Good (snowy) Day All

Sitting here, nice and warm, watching the snow flakes fall, quite quiet and peaceful.
I think I should have been a Hermit. Really enjoying the clean white cover over all the old grass, leaves etc.

Taking the day off.
I'd like a cup of your finest coffee Marc, if you have any on hand. I'll add a little touch of Irish Mist to smooth things out.
Anyone else want a wee drop or two?

@ Grovetube - Hi, I'm Bill, nice to know there still are sane people around, hope you join in often.

Coffee coming right up, Bill. However, please keep the talk of snow at a minimum. Merci, mon ami. Paix.

Hi Bill. Well sanity is relative... to what Iím not sure. Iím happy to pop by once in a while or more since weíre all couped up. As long as itís peaceful. I have no appetite for nonsense anymore. I knew many members here personally in real life and unfortunately they all left for that reason. I miss the old days when things were lively and fun, more earlier 2000s. It was a few years later when things suddenly got really nasty. I got caught in the muck and needed some fresh air. Almost 7 years lol.

Rps I know a number of people in border towns that have a lot of problems with Americans coming in and heading out to restaurants and shopping without quarantining etc. itís worrisome especially for older people. Here in Toronto itís just a crush of millions of people. We live in a really amazing downtown residential area. Weíre very lucky here, we live in a nice big detached house, lots of room, my wife has her work from home office in the 3rd floor studio (used to be two bedrooms opened right up) and I built an extensive recording studio downstairs that I have retooled easily and teach students via zoom and work on many records and have done a number of video prerecord performances. Iíve been lucky to have been asked to do a few from a couple really incredible facilities here live, in a very well run socially distanced operation. Weíre very very lucky.

I can just count my blessings and hope everyone is ok.
