Ug... k, so I woke up, stumbled downstairs and ... no coffee... I had forgotten to set up the automatic morning brew thing. So I grabbed the basket, opened the cupboard under the sink, stepped on the peddle to lift the lid on the garbage can and proceeded to bang the old, wet, soggy coffee filter and associated grinds... on the floor all over my feet. I stood there, amongst the yucky grinds... and made the new pot of coffee. Only after I could smell the new java brewing did I make a move to clean up the mess. Priorities...

The shower zone includes morning stretching... mostly because I only remember that I'm a human after a few moments of the shower and as a human I need to stretch... Whatever... the point is, I was (am) very stiff on the right side of my neck... very!! It hurt in the shower... now? it's 11:00 am... it doesn't hurt at all... The left side... is freaking killing me! I swear it (the ouch) moved. Actually, I suppose I have been favouring the right side all morning and it's hurt the left?? again... whatever!!! it's just a pain in the neck yo!

My folks are home the east coast all safe and sound... :) I want to go over and see pictures.

So there's this guy in Ottawa... with FIVE pit bulls. ALL OF THEM... have been involved in incidents like attacking neighbors, attacking kids, breaking down their own front door from the inside to get outside and attack somebody... And so the city takes the dogs. Well they've been given back... apparently there is some shit going on that means he gets to appeal and have the muts with him while he does it. This all makes so little sense to me. Forget the complicated laws... I am all about this notion: Your dog attacks and bites somebody on the street.... Your dog dies and you get a hefty fine. Period. I'm a dog lover... and personally I think it's pathetic that so many people have untrained dogs. Dogs... in my opinion, live more fulfilling lives in a city setting, if they have proper training.
~ on a related note, I heard on the radio that they have invented SPRAY ON BACON. Aerosol can of BACON!!! Like... "spray on a piece of buttered bread, add lettuce and tomato..." So, that dude with the five pit bulls. Wouldn't it be a stitch if he bought himself a faulty can of spray on bacon... and it exploded all over him when he tried to use it.
Pit Bull #1: "hey Spike... do you smell bacon?"

A careful review of the historical record will show that ... British and other European aggressors divided up the middle east when the wrested it from the Ottoman empire in the late 1800's. They created circumstances that dramatically altered the "faith landscape" across that part of the world. One of the "divided up" places was Palestine. A vast and empty stretch of unforgiving sand, in Palestine, was seeded to a group of jewish settlers... "here... take this and leave us alone". They built irrigation systems, and laboured and built a home. They turned the sand into an oasis. So the Palestinians living in the barren wastes saw the green and wanted to live there too. Such was the beginning.
Now the Jews were very protectionist and shunned the interests of their neighbors. They made totally shitty neighbors unless being a neighbor meant "you got yours and I got mine". They made labour laws that favoured other jews at the expense of Palestinian arabs. There were wars... there were agreements... and there has been so much death, destruction, anger and hate that... basically ... the lot of them can all fall into the sea and I wouldn't give a rats ass.
However... All of that history - and it gets very complicated - leads to the here and now where we watch as some 6000 jews that settled in a palestinian area called Gaza... (1.7 million - 1,700,000 - palestinians and 6000 Jews) are moved out by their own government... because ... they make lousy neighbors.
