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.

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.
