Punished for obeying the law

I grew up watching movies. I can remember going to the movie theater when I was five or six and watching Kelly’s Heroes and I distinctively remember watching Where Eagles Dare sat next to my dad on the balcony of my local flea pit (and yes it was). I remember once going every single night of the week to watch Police Academy (no accounting for taste when young) and trying to watch any movie that I was able to get into to. To be honest, a lot of the movies weren’t that great and it was also very cheap to go to the theater. I still remember that half way through the movie, the old lady who would have taken your money at the door of the theater, would walk to the front of the cinema with a tray that had a little light and lots of tubs of ice cream. I still shudder when I remember using the wooden spoon. I remember these with fondness. Now that I am grown up, I don’t manage to get to the movie theater as much as I might once have liked to. There are reasons of course for this, I have a [...]

More signs?

I noticed on the way back into town today coming from Talbotville, that the majority of the signs on Highway 4 as you come down the hill are grotty. The sign to the airport for instance isn’t clear, it looks dirty. Surely if we want people to com...

Book review- Vanishing Acts- Jodi Picoult

Delia Hopkins lived in New Hampshire with her daughter Sophie, her best friend and fiancee, Eric, who is an attorney,  her widowed father Andrew, and her lifelong friend, Fritz. She and Eric are engaged, and are both madly in love with their daughter. Her father works in a retirement home, and Fritz is a reporter for the local newspaper. Delia works for Search and Rescue, with her bloodhound, Greta. She begins having random flashbacks of her early childhood that make no sense. She mentions planting a lemon tree with her father, so Fritz did some investigating,  and what turned up was terrifying. The police came and arrested Delia’s father, Andrew, for kidnapping Bethany Matthews 27 years earlier. When Delia asked who Bethany was, her father replied, “You were”. So the story moves to Phoenix, Arizona, where her former life took place. The book tells the story from everyone’s point of view. From Delia dealing with the fact her mother was alive and well, and why her father had to take her away from that house, Eric, defending Delia’s father, and battling alcoholism, to Andrew’s time in prison, and just trying to stay alive, and Fritz’s secret love for Delia, while [...]

What's your take?

(This is an image of a submarine race) Port Stanley wants it, and so does Port Burwell and now it seems St.Thomas is jumping aboard (pardon the pun) the idea of parking the HMCS Ojibwa nearby. I don’t know much about nautical history in the area so I am really …
