The % might be less compared to those from the south. Alot of people continue to be in denial and dont want to hear about these practical issues. Just like hard drugs is ravaging the nook and cranies of the country; most used by alot of politicians and kids of the wealthy in Nigeria..
I passed it called up to me, Balgeary that Balgury is dead.’ that, the cat, sitting before the fire, whipped round on me. Devil fire you! said he, didn you tell me before? I be late for the funeral. And with that and no more, he leapt over the half door, and was gone like the wind, and from that day we have seen no sign of him..
Their Birth of America series which consists of 3 games: 1812 Invasion (of Canada), 1775 Rebellion, 1754 Conquest (the French and Indian War) had really caught my attention. Apart from 1775, these are virtually unknown episodes outside of the US. 1812 was a sideshow in the much larger Napoleonic Wars but had a very real impact on how Canada views itself.
Mike and I were at a friends Birthday party on Saturday night when the roads froze over. While driving home you couldn go a mile without seeing a car either in a ditch or left on the side of the road. That was how bad it was! Luckily for us, we made it home in one piece.

In school, students learned that it was unscientific to ask what an animal thinks or feels.

Because Waterthrush Bench was engulfed in frozen snow, I was reduced to using the bulldozer seat as a wildlife watching perch. That day I spent watching a fox squirrel that clambered down the steep slope to dig near the stream. Then it climbed up to the road toward the bulldozer and back down to the stream, looking for any seeds that might have fallen on the snow.
For years, the ice cream shop and cafe has been a place for the young to congregate and do whatever teenagers have done since the days of American Graffiti. Whether enjoying a scoop of sherbet, complaining about your mortgage or relishing in your new promotion, you can’t help but long to be gossiping and deciding which party to attend that night as the kids do at the next table. The ’50s style UFO models hanging from the ceiling embody your alienation when you inevitably notice the pervasive style of pants in the establishment.
