Back in 1935 on this date the board game Monopoly was invented ( Yup back 80 years ago ). Hey I just passed GO, where is my $ 200 dollars ?
A red light camera caught you speeding through. The fine is $275. You owe $75.
Thanks for the post AlCzervik. Yes they are very sneaky in trying to catch us these days.
We don't have a Flag Day here in Canada but we do celebrate July 1st as Canada Day. However it has now been 50 years since we got our new flag, yes our happy little Maple Leaf. I remember our then Prime Minister Lester Pearson ( back in 1965 ) had some work to do to get the new flag accepted but nowadays it is a beloved symbol of Canada.
In this thead we cover odd items from time to time which brings us to the town of Taber, Alberta. They have just brought in some new by-laws there that are rather goofy:
1) No swearing in public,
2) No spitting on the public sidewalks,
3) No gatherings of more than 3 people on public property,
No I'm not making this stuff up lol. Of course this will end up in court and then most likely go on to our Supreme Court. However when I first heard about this goofy stuff the other day I wondered if I had been transported back to the old USSR ( Soviet Union ). The provincial government here in Alberta does have the power to remove a local council if needed but I didn't hear anything about that yet.
No I'm not making this stuff up lol.
Oh c'mon, Cabby; be REAL!
(Did you mean, public sidewalk?)
Thanks for the post Joseph-S. I forgot to mention the other day that a curfew is now in effect in Taber for minors. On the getting together in groups we do have the Right Of Assembly up here as well so I'm sure that this BS will end up in court soon. I just hope that the mass-media does not get ahold of this goofy stuff.
It seems that in small towns there is always someone who wants to be a big pot and tell everyone what to do.
--- Thanks for the post Ivandh. Yes that is quite true. In this case I still think that the provincial government here needs to remove the mayor and council down there and then run the town directly for a while.
Tomorrow is a day that is perfect for guys like me, it is International Goof-Off Day. Yup I'm very good at goofing-off, however not too many other talents here tho lol.
Shit...that's every other day for me.
A yes I know the feeling. Mind you I was a lttle upset on Sunday because we had received a small amount of snow Saturday night and so I had to do some sweeping around here( I was supposed to just goof-off all day lol ).
