Hate, bigotry and discrimination is.

I will probably be taken to task again for this subject but I stand by my position. Why? Because based on science, every human on the planet is 99.9% genetically related. The 0.1% difference relates to skin color, eye color and other minor differences. The point is, we are ALL…


Women and men are as different as chalk and cheese. Thankfully!

Ever since the first multi-celled organisms on primitive earth figured out sex was the best way to reproduce, there has been an ongoing battle between the sexes. Some creatures take it to the extreme such as the Praying Mantis. The male, generally smaller than the female has to figure out…


The opinion of a 77-year-old white male

An image of Jacinda Ardern, the New Zealand Prime Minister.

If any people have the right to gloat over the way they handled COVID 19 it is New Zealanders led by a youthful, female prime minister.

But the country’s PM didn’t gloat over the successful suppression of COVID 19 unless you call doing…

Number one of the most useless occupations on the planet in my mind are “influencers.”

WEIRD: In New Zealand and Australia means acting in a clownish way or being silly in a goofy way.

A MOB: Down-under vernacular for a group of people, possibly a bunch of your mates or it could be a drunken bunch of yobos out for a good time or it…


Or, do you not vote and don’t care?

In Canada, we have just gone through our second federal election in two years. Our government, for the past six years, has been Liberal or by its official name; the Liberal Party of Canada. This party, well known for its spendthrift way ways is led by Justin Trudeau; the boy…
