Global Warming On Our Trip, Or Not!
We had a wonderful Christmas, I hope everyone else did too! Funny what a week without the internet can do for you.
As we were driving, we heard that PM Harper had appointed 18 Senators, and that Mike Duffy was one of them, then the station cut out, and through the mountains you only get CBC Radio if you are lucky, so I had to watch TV to get confirmation that it really was true. I'm happy for "The Duff", but sad for Conservatives because the only balanced TV reporter (except Rex Murphy) has now lost his voice, and we have lost ours as a consequence. Craig Oliver must be livid, maybe he can console Phil Fontaine, but the Senate appointments are old news for everyone but me.
Global warming hit us on both the drive to and from Kelowna. You would not have believed how the frozen waterfalls were melting because of all the cars driving through the mountains. It was very disturbing! (If you look really hard, the salt on the road has melted some of the ice.)
The only conclusion I can reach is that we must close all routes into BC so we can save the planet! Sorry Mom and Dad, but the BC carbon tax seems to be working so well that you BC'ers must be isolated so that the rest of Canada doesn't pollute your world. This might also help to keep BC Bud in BC, but I'm sure that pack mules through the mountains will still somehow make it to Alberta. HA.
I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed, and after white knuckling it through the mountains one more time, I leave you with this video, which expresses my joy that my family is once again home, safe and sound.
Okay, I'm not Celtic, but music is a unifier.
