Election in Canada

Monday, June 28th, 2004

🙂 Today my wife and I go to the polls to cast our ballot for our riding representative. In years past the selection was so lean I would simply go to reject the ballot. That my friends is a very serious statement to send to the parties and Elections Canada. However, this time around: the Reform, Alliance, or whatever they called themselves over the years and the Progressive (read Regressive) Conservative Party; have finally come together and healed the rift in the Conservative community. Today I cast a vote. My, what a wonderful day to be a voter again.

note* Perhaps the BQ in Quebec will see they are true conservatives, not seperatists, and the healing of all the conservative people in Canada will be complete.

An Ecclesiastes Day

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2004

:laugh: There are two shortcut philosophies about life. The first says: live your life as if this were the last day of your life; so better get my affairs in order. The second says: today is the first day of the rest of your life; so better make some plans. I began to ponder these two thoughts on life. I melded them into one thought. Since this is the first day of the rest of my life and I should live as though it were also the last day… I came to a same similar conclusion to that of Solomon the great… leave a goodbye note then eat, drink and be merry for tommorow we die.

hmmm… Maybe I need to think this one through a little more 😉

Comments Section Enabled?

Wednesday, June 16th, 2004

:plain: I wrote when I started this weblog that I would enable comments when I thought it safe to do so. Looking at my logs recently I have noticed that one or more persons have been trying to hack into the weblog through restricted access pages. Why is the net not as great as it could be? Because there are people who would wreck the work of others for a sense of perverse enjoyment. So as a precaution I will not be opening this weblog to comments from others. Until I find a way to protect the site better, things will remain as they are. If you are willing to give your email address and get a password, you can then use the forum to start (I hope) a discussion string.

Web Additions

Wednesday, June 16th, 2004

:doze: I thought I would give a bit of an update to my repeat visitors. You may be wondering about a lack of additions to the site over the past month. Yes, my father dying did have an impact. Yesterday I tried to get something started and when I went to print my printer died on me again. I print all my material so I can work at it away from my computer. Hopefully a new printer… a new computer… is not far away. I should be able to get things up and running again shortly after the purchase. God bless…

My Father

Wednesday, June 9th, 2004

🙁 Last month I came to you and asked that you would pray for my father who was in the hospital due to pneumonia. He recovered yet the disease was not fully cleared from his body. On Friday, June 4th, he was admitted to the hospital once again for pneumonia and additional problems. On Saturday my sister and I had a chance to visit him. He was suffering and wanted to die. I prayed for him to recover and added that when the time for his departing was at hand that he would be taken quickly. The time for his passing was that day in the evening. Now my father rests from his struggles in the bossom of his Lord and Saviour. We will meet again in the ressurection. I mourn his passing but will joy in the morning when all things are made new. Thanks again for those who prayed for my father. Your prayers will be remembered. God bless…
