    Ninety-one counts for the Count of Sedition.
    Once again he’s blown past all our norms and traditions.
    We know for a fact there could be a lot more.
    The emoluments clause still hangs out there — a lure.
    Alone, Trump’s a liar, a cheat, and a con.
    With lawyers and minions, he’s Dangerous Don!
    He began with big greed, then craved power. Now fear
    Drives him on; he’s not likely to veer.So stop him we must or the future looks grim.
    The “experiment” fails if we again elect him!
    There’s only one path now, the path of the vote.


    So it’s just about time that we stop and take note!
    Stop gnashing our teeth — and worrying our beads!
    Nothing is perfect; let’s get out of the weeds!
    Once again, there’s one path — and it’s Biden and Harris.
    Stop wringing your hands; it’s yourselves you embarrass.
    Trump and Biden, both old; yes, and Trump has more hair.
    Other than that, how do these guys compare?
    Get on the wagon! The wagon must roll ...
    This wagon’s our country, its heart and its soul!

    No real surprise today as Kevin McCarthy is ousted as Majority Speaker of The House.

    ( or in his case his SHELL! ha ha, oops sorry )

    My daddy used to have episodes like this (he was in his 80's too when this started). We all never knew what caused it, but I always suspected it might have been his blood sugars because they would drop suddenly on him.

    Videotron was the entity that bought Freedom Mobile from Rogers and I had no idea that Videotron employees were on strike in late October https://mobilesyrup.com/2023/10/31/u...ut%20of%20work.

    so just now BOTH George Santos and Kitara Rivache have been expelled from Congress!! Quite the high ethical standards the GOP have for their members of Congress. Personally I had NO issues with him as a drag performer but the stealing of his constituents credit card info and racking up payments to himself for
    Botox was a line.

    For those who are Bell customers using their discounts with The Source stores, be aware that the store names are changing and some locations will close!

    I think most of us expected that Alexei would perish in a Russian prison. I was so confused as to why he had returned to Russia when there was an opportunity to stay where he was,
    ( a little safer in Germany ). R.I.P. Mr. Navalny

    Absolutely agree, @walkonby , he could have done so much more work outside of russia than being silenced and imprisoned inside. As soon as he went back in, I thought, ‘dead man walking’.

    Have you noticed that a couple of more people in Russia have had encounters with someone wanting them gone? Aide to Navalny was attacked and a Lukoil executive supposedly died by suicide at work, though reports differ if he died in a restroom or really hung himself in another area. Suspicious.

    In case I was not the only one raising eyebrows yesterday as the morning show ran a headline about Dollar Tree going to close 1000 stores-the impact is going to be mostly in the US under DT's Family Dollar store chain: 600 stores to close now and 370 later when leases are ending. Dollar Tree will only close 30 of its own stores-I have no idea if any of them might be in Canada.

    Windows 10 and 11 users-we got a Mail update to Outlook coming our way soon:
    Windows 11 is forcing users to upgrade Mail app to new Outlook client which comes with a nasty addition – adverts (msn.com)

    I technically have both a Hotmail and Outlook address each and did not close them because it seems laptops want users to anchor them to a service with e-mail accounts etc. Have to see if any mail is in either account. Been months since I looked into Outlook. Had I been able to purchase Microsoft Office for a year when I bought the laptop in 2021, I'd have need of the Hotmail/Outlook address.

    Funny how I was able to get Gmail to work suddenly in December after 3 yrs of no entry. Huh. The account almost jumped the Google shark.

    For those persons intending to fly out of Toronto Pearson International airport and expecting an inflight meal-you might not get one.
    Gate Gourmet staff is intending to strike next week for higher wages and over safety at work issues.

    With the warming weather, Canadians may be thinking of more US cross-border shopping. But wait! The Canadian Border Service Agency workers are voting on a mandate to strike this spring.The workers have been without a contract for a couple of years.

    Fans of the Red Lobster restaurants in Canada-the morning shows today are saying the US parent company is considering filing for Chapter 11 due to $11M loss last year during the Endless Shrimp promotion.

    Red Lobster is considering filing for bankruptcy and people are losing it | Dished (dailyhive.com)

    I'd check for any gift cards in your home/purse/totes & backpacks/e-wallets/vehicles that you still have a chance to use.

    If you recall how the Cdn Bed Bath and Beyond shutdown in 2023 occurred prior to the US parent company's shuttering under previous ownership, you will recall the short one week window given to Canadians to use any remaining gift cards before the chain would no longer accept them.
