2012 A New Beginning!

I made no new year's resolutions, because I always break them new year's day.

What a year it has been for Conservatives, in all my many years I have never seen such a triumph, such a sweet sweet victory.

We had a neighbourhood drop in today, it was great. I love cooking for a party. I get to put out things like smoked oysters and pickled asparagus, yumm. When "occupy" was mentioned by someone, everyone laughed, end of story, the laughter said it all.

What do we have to be thankful about? Simple. A strong PM with a majority government.

What do I want to see from the federal government this year?

One thing. Abolish the federal HRC.

Happy New Year.

Friday Night Funnies: Happy New Year!

Got back just in time for the Friday night funnies. Since New Year's is typically all about parties, beer, and sports, here are some favorites.

OH!  C-c-c-cold Wipes! Cold Wipes!
--------------------------------------------------------

On the last day of school before Christmas, the children brought gifts for their teacher.
The supermarket manager's daughter brought the teacher a basket of assorted fruit.
The florist's son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers .
The candy-store owner's daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy .
Then the liquor-store owner's son brought up a big, heavy box.
The teacher lifted it up and noticed that it was leaking a little bit.
She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it.
"Is it wine ?" she guessed.
"No," the boy replied. She tasted another drop and asked, " Champagne ?
"No," said the little boy............." It's a puppy
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------
 Census Trouble...Guess the dreaded long form is still around:
 
Can you believe it …. they sent my Census form back!

In response to the question: "Do you have any dependents?" I replied:
"2.1 million illegal immigrants; 1.1 million crack heads; 4.4 million unemployable people, 901 thousand people in over 85 prisons; and 565 idiots in Parliament."

Apparently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

Who did I miss ?
 --------------------------------------------------------
You have to pay attention here, it moves really quickly!
 


--------------------------------------------------------
New Year's can be a time for love too...

 Murphy's' old lady had been pregnant for some
time and now the time had come.

He brought her to the doctor and the doctor began
to deliver the baby .

She had a little boy, and the doctor looked over
at Murphy and said. 'Hey,  Murph! You just had you a son!

'Ain't dat grand!!' Murphy got excited by this,
but just then the doctor spoke up and said, 'Hold on! We ain't
finished yet!'

The doctor then delivered a little girl.

He said, 'Hey, Murph! You got you a daughter!!!!
She is a pretty lil ting, too....'

Murphy got kind of puzzled by this and then the
doctor said, 'Hold on, we ain  t got done yet!'

The doctor then delivered another boy and said,
Murph, you just had yourself another boy!'

Murphy said to the doctor, 'Doc, what caused all
of dem babies,?'

The doctor said, 'You never know Murph, it was
probably something that happened during conception..'

Murphy said, 'Ah yeah, during conception.'

When Murph and his wife went home with their
three children, he sat down with his wife and said,

'Mama, you remember dat night that we ran out of
Vaseline and we had to use dat dere 3-in-1 Oil.'

She said, 'Yeah, I remember dat night...'

Murph said, 'I'll tell you, ......it's a  good
ting we didn't use WD-40.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
I love the Budweiser Clydesdale ad's:
---------------------------------------------------------------- 
Here is one you might not have seen, it's a statement for those who died on 9/11.
 ---------------------------------------------------

For those of you who are going to party tomorrow, here is something to prevent that hangover:

Almonds

Prevent a hangover by eating 6 to 12 almonds before drinking. The North American Natives claim this will protect the body against intoxication.
Have a fun and safe New Year! 2011 has been an excellent adventure for Conservatives.

Politics Is Boring, So I Bring You Dogs!

Seriously, so close to Christmas, I could care less about politics. The Conservatives will still have a majority after Christmas, and the opposition will still belly ache about every single piece of legislation.

So, I bring you dogs. They are loyal and protect their masters. First up is my black lab puppy. He loves the snow, but not the snow shovel. Keep this one on the quiet because if the Dogs With Wings people saw this, he might be in trouble. (Just kidding, the Dogs With Wings people understand that this is a 15 week old puppy.)



In keeping with the season, I bring you dogs singing Christmas songs. I really like this one (out of the seems like hundreds I watched) because you can see the dogs chewing on the treats, but it is edited well, so it doesn't matter.



It's not as fake as the "air bud puppies", even though they are adorable!

 

I wish all of you the best Christmas ever. My blogging will be very light for awhile. May your hearts be filled with the special feeling that Christmas brings.

A Call To Arms To All Alberta Conservative Bloggers.

Our new unelected Premier is moving faster than Superman in pushing through legislation that she tells us the majority of Albertans want. I don't know what majority she is talking to, but it isn't your everyday Albertan.

Alberta Aardvark clearly shows, how in her own words, she is a few brain cells shy of being a NDP leader.

My point is that we can whine about how bad she is, or we can start posting positive statements about Wildrose. Being in opposition makes it harder for Wildrose to get any media attention, we need to get the power of blogs reved up to start the engine that will see the Alberta PC's replaced by the Wildrose.

One comment on an article I read today asked where Danielle stood on the issue of Chiquita bananas. She had already condemned them on twitter and has issued a statement, but the media didn't cover it.

Statement by Danielle Smith on Chiquita oil sands boycott

CALGARY, AB (December 17, 2011): Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith today issued the following statement on the boycott of Chiquita, which agreed to stop using fuel from Alberta’s oil sands to ship its product:
“It’s disappointing to see another company make this decision based on misinformation and rhetoric instead of fact.
“Alberta’s oil sands are the most safe, secure and reliable source of energy in the world, and tremendous progress has been made in reducing emissions and environmental impacts.
“Personally, I will boycott Chiquita products until they reverse their ill-informed decision to avoid fuel from Alberta’s oil sands. I am proud of Alberta’s record of responsible resource development.
“I’m also calling on Premier Alison Redford to join me in denouncing Chiquita’s decision and commit to an aggressive strategy to counter special interests that seek to cripple and shut down Alberta’s oil sands.”

Meanwhile, Red Ali is nowhere to be found on this issue. She is too busy sucking up to the teachers union to hear anything Albertans are concerned about. She is a tax and spend Liberal down to her shiny red shoes. I can not...I will not EVER support her.

 So, my one commitment as a life long Albertan is to work as hard as I can to make sure Albertans hear about Wildrose as an alternative to the PC's. The PC's are in fact progressive/ Liberal, but there is nothing Conservative about them anymore, especially with Red Ali as their leader.


If you know nothing about Wildrose, here is a good place to start;

40 Reasons to Vote Wildrose. Get involved, get informed. The PC's have been in power for 40 years, it really is time for a change Alberta. You can smell it in the air, a brisk, fresh breeze to clear out all the old and smelly cobwebs. It's time Alberta, our motto is "strong and free" let's make sure we live up to that motto. We will not be "strong and free" with a Mommy Dalton ruling Alberta.

Are Our Kids Spoiled?

You decide. What if you told your children that they wouldn't get anything for Christmas because the family was going to give that money to a charity? Think they would be okay with that?

How about you give them presents that they don't like? Here is the response you could expect from them, and it isn't pretty.



You can read all the comments here.

This is a perfect example of kids sense of entitlement, started at a very young age, by us, the parents, if we are not careful. Maybe we should step up and teach our children the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ and the love of all.

Then you have this example of how wonderfully innocent and delightful children can be:



Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones! May you feel the love of God in your heart and soul this Christmas. 

We had rain earlier tonight, but it has turned into big, fluffy, snowflakes. It's absolutely beautiful out here tonight.

Friday Night Funnies: Icebreaker

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots.
Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with
someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to
be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my
friends, family and work. I live close so it's a short drive.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not
too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to
visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand
firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting
older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the
adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the
stimuli I can get!

And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not.

People keep telling me I'm in Denial but I'm positive I've never been
there before!

I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the easier it is
to get there. I actually kind of enjoy it there.

So far, I haven't been in Continent; but my travel agent says I'll be going soon.
---------------------------------------------------------
 For some reason, I can't understand, some of you out there actually like cats. So this is for you cat lovers:

Norwegian Icebreaker heads up the North Saskatchewan River

As you may have seen on the news it's been very cold in Alberta ...
So cold, in fact, that the Government of Alberta has borrowed a Norwegian Icebreaker to clear the North Saskatchewan River for freighter traffic.
The Icebreaker is starting near Devon and working its way northward.  Here is a picture as the hard work of ice breaking begins. Impressive!

'OLD' IS WHEN...
Your sweetie says, 'Let's go upstairs and make love,' and you answer, 'Pick one; I can't do both!'

'OLD' IS WHEN...

Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

'OLD' IS WHEN...

Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

'OLD' IS WHEN....

You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

'OLD' IS WHEN...

You are cautioned to slow down by thedoctor instead of by the police.

'OLD' IS WHEN
..
'Getting a little action' means you don't need to take a laxative today.

'OLD' IS WHEN.....

'Getting lucky' means you find your car in the parking lot..

'OLD' IS WHEN...
An 'all nighter' means not getting up to use the bathroom.

'OLD' IS WHEN....

You're not sure if these are facts or jokes.

-----------------------------------------------------
 
If you didn't see this on the Tonight show, I hope you're sitting down when you read it. This is probably the funniest date story ever, first date or not!!! We have all had bad dates but this takes the cake.

Jay Leno went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date that a woman ever had. The winner described her worst first date experience.

There was absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!

 
She said it was midwinter...Snowing and quite cold... and the guy had taken her skiing in the mountains outside Salt Lake City , Utah .

It was a  day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and had never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon.

They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte. ! ! They were about an hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for a while. Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point here she told him that he had better stop and let her go beside the road, or it would be the front seat of his car.

They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started. In the deep snow she didn't have good footing, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself. Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.

Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to poles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal.. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem, due to the extreme cold.


Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor of the moment, she answered her date's concerns about' what is taking so long' with a reply that indeed, she was 'freezing her butt off' and in need of some assistance!  He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem.

Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free. So, as she looked the other way, her first time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender.


As the audience screamed in laughter, she took the Tonight Show prize hands down. Or perhaps that should be 'pants  down'. And you thought your first date was embarrassing. Jay Leno's comment.... 'This  gives a whole new meaning to being pissed  off.'

Oh and how did the first date turn out? He became her husband and was sitting next to her on the Leno show.

Compare and Contrast, Charities!

I think that the Suzuki Foundation should be unlisted as a charity. There is nothing charitable about that organization.

In the spirit of Christmas, we all give more, so I ask you to compare and contrast these two, tell me who you would give your hard earned money to:


Rolling Dog Farm

Help me help the Rolling Dog Farm win a $25,000 donation from Mozilla. The charity that raises the most for the Mozilla campaign will win.

This was a project that my dad cared deeply about and he passed that passion on to me. Please help these animals. Throw them a bone.
The Rolling Dog Farm in northern New Hampshire rescues and shelters disabled animals. Every animal who arrives at the Rolling Dog Farm gets another chance to have a safe and loving home. Their residents include blind dogs, blind horses, deaf dogs, blind cats, and animals with other neurological and orthopedic disabilities.

 

 These are real people, helping real animals without squawking daily about how much their cause helps animals. True heroes. 

Next up, PETA:

Silk Production Causes Painful Death for Insects
The so-called “silkworm” is actually a domesticated insect who, in nature, goes through the same stages of metamorphosis—egg, larva, pupa, and adult—that all moths do.(5) Silk is derived from the cocoons of larvae, so most of the insects raised by the industry don’t live past the pupa stage, as they are steamed or gassed alive in their cocoons.(6) Approximately 3,000 silkworms are killed to make every pound of silk.(7)

Funny how PETA thinks it's painful for insects to die in the pupa stage. I wonder if they think that aborting a human baby in the "pupa" stage is painful too?  Just asking!

Oh, by the way, your WOOL coat, made from renewable growth by sheep, is also BAD. What do these guys recommend? 

This season, cross coats made with wool and down off your shopping list, and opt for items created with synthetic materials, recycled fibers, and soft cotton instead. Whether you're looking for polished or practical, you can find a cruelty-free look you love right here:
This jacket is perfect for daytime errands and lazy weekends. Add a pair of bright mittens, a scarf, and a hat for extra warmth.

WARNING. Do not click on any of the images on PETA's site because they lead you to companies trying to sell you something. PETA is all about marketing "ideas" and nothing about actually saving any animal. Notice that they are selling "synthetic materials"? Hey PETA, that means nasty oilsands products! Are they so dumb they don't know what "synthetic" means?

Synthetic Fibers are made from synthesized polymers or small molecules. The compounds that are used to make these fibers come from raw materials such as petroleum based chemicals or petrochemicals.

So, I ask you, where would your money go? Rolling Dog Farm or PETA?

Burka/Niqab Day For Parliament

I have said it before, and I will say it again, I want all MP's to wear a burka/niqab for just ONE day. Then honestly answer these questions:

Did you find it oppressive or freeing?
Did your personality change?
Do you think that anyone would actually "choose" to wear it, not just for a day but for a lifetime?
Did you feel isolated in public while wearing it?
Is this a good idea for Canadian society?

For those of you who are confused about the differences, the National Post had a great graphic:


We are all familiar with the hijab, it's unoffensive but it does identify a woman as a Muslim. I have often wondered why Muslim males do not have to wear anything that will identify them as Muslim's but their women do, sometimes isolating those women. Is isolation the goal of Muslim men for their women? Sikh males wear a turban, Jews wear a yamulke, Catholics wear crosses, just to name a few, why don't Muslim men wear something to identify themselves as Muslim?  Or do they?  

I love the wonderful sari's that East Indian women wear! Colourful, beautiful, and modest. Why can't Muslim women wear clothing like this:


Notice, that the faces are uncovered. I have noticed that most East Indian ladies wear their sari's for special occasions, not as everyday wear, what they have done is assimilated into Canadian society without losing their "cultural" identities. I posted about making perogies the other day, even though I have never been to the Ukraine or Poland, my family has retained some of that "culture". Same for most people who immigrate to Canada, they retain parts of their "culture" and it makes Canada a much richer country. 

I hate to break it to the lefties, but all cultures are NOT equal and we need to tell the people who are immigrating here, what is proper and what we, as Canadians, will not abide. We need to celebrate our differences, but we need to be aware that some women are raised to believe that they can be beaten for not obeying their "betters", usually the men in their lives and their mother-in-laws.

Remember how the Japanese bound the feet of their women? Here is a bit of history on how that "cultural" tradition started and the video to go with the explanation:

Legend has it that lotus or lily foot slippers first appeared in China in the 11th century when Empress Taki was born with deformed feet. To save her future embarrassment, her father announced that only women with very small feet could be truly feminine and desirable. As a result women began to bind their feet. The tiny, virtually unusable feet were a mark of status, beauty, gentility and sexual attractiveness.
The binding process began at age 5 to 7 years old. Bandages were wrapped around the foot to bend the four smaller toes inward under the foot towards the heel until it resembled a half moon.The majority of young girls had their feet bound by their mothers. Binding a daughters feet would ensure she would be married and hopefully to a wealthy man. The intial process of binding the feet took just one night but the feet took years of pain to conform into the beautiful crescent shape. During a painful 2-3 year period, the size of the shoe was gradually reduced. The most highly desired goal being a size only three inches in length.
These silk shoes only measure 140mm (5½ inches) in length and 24mm (1 inch) in width...
Footbinding was horribly painful. In asking why women would do this we need to understand the history behind the practice. Then we can begin to answer our questions as to why a painful tradition would continue to exist for so long.
Thank goodness that "cultural" practice has been stopped. "Cultural" practices will only be stopped if we stand up against them. The refusal of Canadians to confront "cultural" practices we disagree with, because of multiculturalism and political correctness, is wrong. We need to be clear about what the Canadian culture will accept and what we won't. Remember, it's our country, our values and our laws, we do not have to adapt, immigrants need to adapt so they can fully enjoy all of our freedoms to the fullest.  

And for a great example of a frothing at the mouth biased feminist lefty, you have to watch this video, a professor of law? Yikes, is she for real? 

I loved Tarek Fatah's response to this lady.You have to watch it!

This is Canada, WE make the LAWS not immigrants!

Climate Idiots, Who Cares....I Have Holiday Perogies

This last round of climate scare propaganda from the UN was a seriously big YAWN. So, while the greenies were partying it up in S. Africa....I wish I could afford to go there....I was home inventing holiday perogies! Much more productive I might add!

I made the regular cheese and potato perogies about 3 weeks ago, and then my son had a bunch of his buddies over and they disappeared in minutes, and it took me hours to make them. I made more and threatened my boys with hanging by the thumbs if they touched them. So far, no thumbs have been hung! HA!

Then yesterday, I got restless and decided that I needed more perogies to take to my parents for Christmas, but I didn't want the usual cheese and potato, or sauerkraut ones. I give you Holiday Perogies:

The dough is the most important factor in creating awesome perogies. I have tried multiple recipes and I have finally found one that is easy to make and work with.

Perogy Dough

3 cups flour
1 cup potato water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg

Mix together and let rest, covered, for an hour. I usually double or triple the recipe.

Holiday Perogies:

Mashed potato, make sure you save the potato water for the dough.
Fry onions and garlic in butter
Fry mushrooms, drain
Strain sauerkraut, and chop
Melt Philly cream cheese in microwave
Fry bacon and chop into tiny pieces

Combine all ingredients, and use as the filling for the perogy. Stuff the dough with filling and put on cookie sheet, layer with wax paper, and freeze. I usually make the filling the day before, then you don't have to deal with filling that is too hot.

Even my Dogs With Wings puppy got into the action:


Remember our ancestors had limited resources, so even though potato and cottage cheese perogies are delicious, we have the ability to create an even better perogy. Use your imagination. 

Welcome Home Troops!

Our Canadian troops held the most dangerous region of Afghanistan for years, at a great cost. I am so proud of our troops for their abilities and their integrity. No matter how badly the opposition parties slammed our troops with slimy innuendo about torture, proven wrong, our troops kept doing their jobs.

I congratulate our troops for the very hard job they had and for accomplishing their goals, with class. Good job troops!

They make Canadians proud. Don't mess with Canadians, our troops are the best in the world.  

Two videos that define our troops, and Canada. Oldies, but goodies.
