Parka Patrol

For CBC Radio fanatics who've asked about Parka Patrol down through the years, there is now new evidence it existed.

The 54-episode series ran Saturday nights for two years in the '80s, beloved by forest rangers and once-a-week hippy bath water boilers in the Outback.

Do you hear wolves? Me too.

County Cider

Spent a week roaming around Prince Edward County, Picton and Sandbanks Provincial Park on Lake Ontario.
Third fall trip down there, the prettiest sideroads in autumn.
Most of the pics below and above come from there.

Blood orange cider from County Cider ... pumpkins too.

Hilltop heaven

Fences make nice neighbors

You could wait forever

                     Is there a restaurant in Canada that doesn't have this sign posted somewhere on the premises?

The Wiz

Who knew the CBC had advance clips from NBC's Christmas musical, The Wiz?   

We're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy....
Urine trouble now....

Among the many tweets and twitters concerning a PC candidate's exit from the election race after being caught peeing in a homeowner's coffee cup, was this one ....

Janis Millar

Laughter is always the best medicine and if that's what it's going to take to throw the cons off stride then start laughing everyone. Everyone should go out and buy one coffee mug and when the con candidate comes to your door just hand it to them with a big smile. If you can find one with a zany saying all the better. Start laughing people.

Call it the Tempest-in-a-Teacup strategy.

How wet can you get?

So here we are in 2015, the snow dripping off the roof

So here we are in 2015, the snow dripping off the roof.

What is the warmest word in any Canadian's vocabulary?


And in the spirit of rebirth ... the blog begins again.

Perhaps start with a joke?

How To Escape a Polar Bear

If you know the BBC's not-quite-a-game show Qi,  you may already have the answer.

When chased by a polar bear, simply toss off your clothes.

First your hat, then your coat, toss your gloves ...

Keep running.

Then your sweater, next the t-shirt, then your pants ....

Keep running.

Toss your shoes behind you, and your socks ...

Keep running.

The bear will stop to carefully paw each item.

Sniff it. Lick it.

This gives time to put distance between you and the bear.

You may escape ... 

Or wind up on the icy barrens, naked and afraid.

If you eventually meet the bear, he will say:

Oh good ... an unwrapped one.
