from the thank God it's almost over dept.

What a week. Start with the joy of Christmas. And then at least 125,000 people die.

So... do something nice. Send some money to one of the charitable organizations here:

See. Do.

Gone: In more ways than one

It's the week before Christmas and all through my life is change and upheaval but very little strife.

It's so busy that I must revert to the dastardly point form. It may not be the world's greatest communication tool, but it gets the point(s) across.

- I am pretty much moved out of the Commercial Drive home I've been sharing for 2 months. The majority of my belongings are at the new place, but I won't follow until the early new year because...

- Beginning tonight I am house-sitting for friends who live around Main & 2nd. The only drag is...

- My car is dead. So I had to rent a truck to move ($) and now I must rely on cab$ to get the last bits of stuff (computer, et al) over to Don & Linda's (aka Main & 2nd)... but that's fine because...

- It means I will actually get some peace and quiet and the opportunity to sleep in. Not that there is a lot of time to do that....

- I am doing turn around tonight, then early starts Thur and Fri. Off Sat. Nights Sun. Then 6am starts next week at CBC, plus one double shift. UGH! But that goes towards...

- Debt reduction and the Central American adventure in Feb... where you can buy...

- Flor de Cana rum - but !ALERT! I have spotted it in the Cambie Street Liquor Store. Meaning the nectar that is like drinking the tears of angels is now available locally -- no long flight to Belize required. And that is...

- About all the point form news. More to come once I am settled.

Tons to tell, but time is fleeting.

3 days on Galiano. Now back.

All good. More to come.

from the "There Goes the Retirement" dept.

It's official. Apple has opened the Canadian iTunes music store.

Now the question is: will the content be limited to Anne Murray, Crowbar and Rene Simard?

Time will tell!


from the "Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!" Dept.

I had a bad dream: George replaced Paul.

"My Fellow Canadians. We have put up with the threat of St. Pierre et Miquelon for long enough.

Effective immediately, we will take the islands over, and remove the threat of cheap French wine.

God Bless Me, and God Bless Amer... er, Canada."
