It’s been a while!

I can’t believe that my creative juices (or my need to vent) have gone unfulfilled for almost a year!  There is something wrong with this picture.  So – here I am, back again.  This time I don’t have a specific topic to “chat” about – there are just so many of them.

Why oh why am I yet again seeing an article in the newspaper about the city’s snow budget going into the red???  Doesn’t this happen pretty much every year?  I would sure like to see a more normal budget for snow removal and take the huge risk of having some money left over for a change.

Trudeau…….Wynne…… – what are the similarities and what are the differences?  One is pretty, one is not.  They both make promises.  Neither keeps them.  They are both out of touch with reality.   They are both willing to mortgage our future and that of the next generations.  They are both too “green” for our collective good.  Climate change should not take priority over health, education, the economy, etc.  He can’t put a sentence together without a string of “uh’s”.  She is carefully rehearsed for every speech.

Why on earth would our City budget $10 Million for art in LRT stations???  Surely there could be a way to entice artists to display works for no cost at all for the exposure?  Why not run a program for donation of art-works?  Why not let art students paint murals on the walls?  Why is it a given that a certain percentage of all infrastructure projects be spent on art?  There must be something better to spend that money on.  Snow removal deficits?  Low rental housing?  Food banks?  Surely not  more bike lanes!!!

Why have airlines and airports taken the fun out of travel?  What’s the point of saving Airmiles or Aeroplan points if you can’t book seats when you want them?  Why are the taxes for a flight higher in cost than the flight itself?  Why have airports removed the “service” from customer service?  If it wasn’t for the travel itself, travel just might be enjoyable!!

I think I’m just getting warmed up again – I would welcome your comments and/or topic suggestions.

Thankfully, I do have things to rave about – mostly the people in my life!  You are appreciated and I don’t know how I would survive without you!
