You won’t have to worry about what to watch on Thursday night. Here the three candidates running for Prime Minister – Trudeau, Mulcair and Harper will facing off in a debate. In the US, Donald Trump along with Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and John Kasich will be doing the same.
Blanche, how long is the US debate anyway? Each of those ten dudes gets exactly how long to talk? And who’s going to stop Trump from shooting his mouth off out of turn? What, you don’t think he’ll do that? Let’s bet. Ya think they’ll toss him off stage if they can’t control him? It will definitely be more interesting than ours. Trudeau cut off his locks to make him look older. While that may have worked, it certainly didn’t make him any smarter. In fact, now that the hair is gone from over his ears, more air can get in. Ouch.
Elizabeth May from the Green Party is upset they cut her out of the debates. Last time we looked she had exactly one seat in parliament. Perhaps she should go hug a tree on Thursday night. Ooooh Blanche, dat’s nasty.
Seems there is a post going viral that this winter is going to be very bad. It’s a hoax folks, so don’t pass it around. No one can predict what the weather will be this winter. They also can’t predict what the weather will be today as it was supposed to rain all afternoon and it never did. Next.
Traveling anytime soon? Blanche is here to help. Here’s a list of the states with the worst roads in different categories in the US:
Accidents: Idaho Hazards: Wyoming has the most hazards: construction, animals, potholes, etc Construction: Vermont wins for the most construction although we beg to differ. Even though Quebec is in Canada, there is no doubt we hold the world record. Potholes: Washington DC but again, Quebec would win if entered We saved the best for last: Roadkill: South Dakota wins hands down. Ich.
Guess who won the bid for the winter olympics in 2022? China. To be exact Almaty, Kazakhstan. To tell you the truth, we didn’t even know Kazakhstan belonged to China. But we digress. What the heck does China know about winter sports? Not much Blanche but the good thing is they have seven years to learn. Like we have been saying, follow the money.
Anyone watching Apple stocks in the past couple of days? Millions of people no doubt. They have taken a tumble on the stock market. We found two good reasons, both of which make sense.
The first is China. A slowing economy and slumping stock market have raised concerns about Apple’s prospects in China. Reports this week the iPhone’s market share slipped to number three in the second quarter (behind Xiaomi and Huawei) vs. the top slot in the first quarter added to those concerns.
The second reason is the Apple watch. The lack of detail is leading to speculation that sales are disappointing, further fueled by reports that Facebook hasn’t developed an app for the Apple Watch and that Apple will sell it in Best Buy, starting this month.
The best advice (no, Blanche is not a stock broker, just practical) is to sit tight and do nothing.
