Another week, another Hydro power shut-off. What’s up with this company? Every time they have to do something in our area, which is way more often than they should have to, we get a robo-call: This is Hydro Quebec. We are turning off the power in your area from 1:00-6:00 pm on Tuesday. Seriously?
Between the power failures every time we have the slightest wind or a few snow flakes and scheduled power outages, we should be getting a very nice discount. Dream on baby. We are at the mercy of this Quebec owned and run company. That should say it all. Same people who bring you the ‘road-fixing’.
This could be the mother-of-all-throw-him-under-the-bus story. Barack Hussein Obama does not think Joe Biden has what it takes to take on Trump, let alone be president. Who knew? Seems Obama met with the 2020 candidates running for the nomination. Joe Biden was not among those candidates. It was at that meeting that he said Joe just ‘doesn’t have it.’
What Obama said is certainly not rocket science, but did he really have to say it? Is it not obvious that Biden is way over his head? We are guessing there is no love lost in that friendship.
Prince Andrew is, as they saying goes, in gehakte tsouris – big trouble. Aside from his friendship with Epstein, he is persona non-grata in his family aka the Firm.
To say his choice of ‘friends’ needs upgrading would be the understatement of the year. Especially after he remained friends with Jeffrey Epstein when he was charged with disgusting behaviour and found guilty. Even that did not deter Andrew from keeping in touch with him. We are wont to say that it is very strange, or maybe not, that the prince couldn’t figure out this friendship would remain undetected.
Could it be that Epstein was making Andrew very happy, if you can read between the lines.
Andrew’s latest attempt at clearing his name is that the woman accusing him said he was sweating profusely. He is saying that after he fought in the Falklands and got shot at, he lost the ability to sweat. He said. She said.
Here’s a headline for Andrew: This is not going away any time soon, so we suggest that you hunker down in one of your castles, preferably one with an extensive library, and stay there for a couple of years. At the very least you will be more educated after you leave.
Valerie Plante, Montreal’s mayor has gone from smiley to completely full of it. And we mean to the top. She claims to be ever so sensitive to the needs of the little peeps. The downtrodden. The poor. The hungry. So what does she do? Raises taxes on apartment buildings in the exact area where these people live by 8.1% which means the owners of low income housing apartments will have to pass on this tax increase to the people who can least afford it.
Her obnoxious smile always reminded us of the joker in Batman (a la Anthony Housefather). Now she’s beginning to look like the wicked witch of the west.
As long as nothing touches this woman personally and her sensitivities are not put upon, she will ‘feel so badly’ for the poor in our city. The instant she is affected, like now when she needs money, she has not one second of remorse to throw them under a dump truck loaded with manure. Special, eh Blanche?
This Thursday is Thanksgiving in the United States. It is the biggest holiday for them, bigger even than Christmas. So here are some stats:
42.5 million turkeys produced in Minnesota, the largest turkey producing state, out of a total of 240 million raised in the United States.
3.5 million spectators expected to line the streets of New York City to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
164 million consumers are planning to shop over Thanksgiving weekend, including an estimated 116 million shoppers on Black Friday.
30.6 million passengers will travel on US airlines during the Thanksgiving holiday.
50.9 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving.
The day before Thanksgiving is the worst travel day of the year.
