Island Musings

Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it

Don’t worry sheep

with one comment

Pesticides have been detected the water of schools and seniors residence. However Minister Sherry has assured the sheep that there is nothing to be concerned about. I for one, am relieved that the honourable minister says it is ok for me to consume toxic chemicals in my water.

One of four devices has now been updated.unfortunately I do not have a lot of room on my iPad so I had to let the Mac do the heavy lifting . I am still not sure what all the fuss is about.

(Update. Number two completed. No drama with this one.)

The heads of CBC/Radio-Canada say Canadians are ready to pay to get the broadcaster’s content even if many consider it an acquired right.  Odd, I always thought we were paying for it. If not the tax payers of Canada then who?


I suspect there are many who would not be troubled if the CBC disappeared.

If you are a Bell customer and you are looking to upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and you are on an old plan, the carrier will now force you to upgrade to one of the company’s newest plans which start at $80 per month

If they want to do further testing. 

Just two or three experiences with “magic mushrooms” helped a dozen long-term smokers quit, succeeding in a study where numerous other approaches failed.

First time for the season. Just turned the heat pump on (for heat). 5 minutes and the upstairs was nice and warm. Seems a little early, but if can’t remember yesterday so not sure.

Bethel Maine

Ruk has comments about Bethel.  I am an infrequent traveler to Bethel. It is a great little village. Ruthie’s Bethel Village Motel is recommended. Funky little motel, clean, cheap and and modest. Ruth is at the desk and she is a friendly helpful hostess. Strong coffee is ready from 5 am. 841 km from my home and easy one day drive via the scenic route 2.

The Old Farmers Almanac is predicting a nasty winter. Doubt they are correct as I have a brandy new show blower thingy that will make snow removal easy. I am betting on an easy Winter.
