Tom was burned badly in an industrial accident yesterday. He’s in VGH and I will learn more about his condition soon. Unca Dave knows ALL ABOUT electrical burns, and his description led me to believe they are painful and nasty. (Watching himself get the dressings changed from high above the bath, blown right out on [...]

… and I imagine I will again. I luvs this man. This time he aims his arrows at censorship.
Please note the name of the functionary in this article.… Y’all can’t make this **** up.
The poor bear. And now for something completely adorable: Darwin at four months.
I dunno about my sense of humour, sometimes. Merry Ho Ho Horrible, to you too.
He seemed to be his normal jolly self. It was good to see Paul and Keith for supper as well. How Peggy got an apple crisp (made with Gravensteins, yummazy!) over here, I have no idea, but Paul asked me to get the container back to her. I will. Anyway, that was dessert… also home [...]
Well, I found my Air Canada tix, and I found out how to get from Roissy (which is what the locals call Charles Degaulle airport, who knew) to the hotel on rue St Lazare. It’s only an hour, including walking, but it’s 5 fare zones, so we’ll have to get money in the airport to [...]
Unca Dave is expected here this afternoon. Scarlett Johannson got married – in Canada no less – & Paul Newman died. I light a candle for Cindy, who said, “You amuse me,” on the phone last night in a tone of voice completely free of sarcasm, when I explained something to her about the way [...]

This pretty much sums it up. For my current take on theology. Please note there are a couple of items in there I don’t like, but I haven’t figured out how to rewrite them so they suit me better.
Without its corruption, nothing can rot and be remade. It is the wisdom of stars and the patience of aeons. It is the power to return and master us at any time.

I light a candle for Carrie, who has left her fiancé of three years and is heading back to Ontario. I light another candle for Unca Dave, who is coming to see me and Jeff on the weekend. I light a candle for Mike, who hauled me off to Hastings Steam and Sauna last night [...]
The dreadful family news keeps piling up. He’s been diagnosed with cancer. Paul will be giving him a call later. I feel blank and stupid, like all the air’s been sucked out of the room.
Go Peggy Go. Chipper sent me this….
Uh oh. I first read about this possibility in an SF novel.
