It's been a while since I posted here. I was catching up on your blog, reading all the posts that I had missed out. I find it funny that you get your inspiration from Homer. I am a big fan of the Simpsons too. I didn't watch it for years and suddenly in the last few months I have been watching it regularly. I find that in the earlier episodes it was all about Bart but Homer seems to be the focus of all the episodes that I have been watching recently (they are all in syndication, all mixed up and here in India we get them so late that what they show in the US & Canada. The last one I saw, last nite, was the one in which Homer forms his own Springfield security force and the mob trys to take him down). Have you seen that one? How far behind you am I? Will Maggie ever speak?

Oh & Go SENS GO!!!

Yes, I've seen that episode, no, Maggie will never speak, although she did utter "daddy" in the voice of Elizabeth Taylor once and no, the Sens will never again hoist Lord Stanley's mug.

After reading your 3rd anniversary post, I noticed the part about the 'self-inflicted gunshot wound'. I don't think we've ever heard your opinion on all the conspiracy theories floating around Kurt Cobain's death. What do you think? Was it in fact a suicide?

I just searched my page for all references to Courtney Love. Here they are:

You're right, I don't comment on the conspiracy theories floating around in any of these entries which just goes to show how unsure I am. But then, I found this discussion about Hole's "Celebrity Skin" on our very own Smells Like Sour site where I leave little doubt as to where I stand. I've read Charles Cross' "Heavier Than Heaven", which is awfully kind to Courtney and lets her gently off the hook, but I can't shake a sneaking suspicion that she played a role in Kurt Cobain's death.

The Catholic Church must realize this is the 21st century not the 19th. Philosophies & life as a whole changes. What would you do if one of your kids came out & said I'm Homosexual. Anything can happen! Unfortunately its the children that will suffer due to this resolution from Pope Benny (a joke from his inception). Get someone 50-60 years of age. Thank God I'm protestant.

Pope Benny is lapsing the hell out of this Lapsed Catholic.

Is that the new math? The last 100 people visiting your site add up to 85?

      Mike H.

The other 15 are country-less. They're either using something like this or they're aliens from another planet.

Well its that time of year again, my annual bitch about the Christmas Season starting too early. Why do we have Christmas Songs on the radio November 19, why do we have Christmas decorations in the malls, stores, etc. in November.

We are wrecking the Christmas Spirit... come December we are so full of Christmas shit that it is no fun anymore.

bah humbug

Dude, I'm with ya. It seems that the commercial Christmas season kicks into high gear as soon as Halloween is over and done with. That means two full months of Christmas ads and Christmas music. You're sick of it by December 1.

Just this past weekend I attended a Christmas party and a Santa Claus Parade. I understand certain radio stations are already 24/7 holiday music. For more, read "Holiday Music", something I jotted down on November 28, 2003.

42 years ago today our lives changed with the President of the U.S. being killed in front of our eyes. Being in grade 3 at the time I knew who he was but the conception of the events didn't comprehend at the time. T.V. changed the whole perception of world events. That day in 1963 was the 9/11 of the sixties.

For those who are interested, there's a tonne of information related to the Kennedy assassination available from this site. Then, there's always this trustworthy Wiki page about the event of Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas, USA. All documents related to the assassination that have not been destroyed are scheduled, according to the 1992 Assassinations Records Review Board laws, to be released to the public by 2017.

I opened a pack of hockey cards today and was lucky enough to get an autograph of Nikolai Zherdev (a young talented forward on the Columbus Blue jackets). Only 13 were made so it is quite rare. I've since listed it on e-Bay and the whole family is enjoying watching its progress.

The internet age is simply remarkable in what is allows us to do (e.g. sell a hockey card to the world). If it sells I think I'll put the money towards Christmas presents.

They have the Internet on computers now?

Today is my mother's ninetieth birthday. I am so grateful to have had her in my life all these years. She is not doing as well as one might wish upon her but when I visit her I still feel that great amount of love that she has always had for me. Sometimes in this cold, harsh city I just crave a dose of my mother's amazing love for me. If only we could bottle such a love. Thank you mom for always giving me this great affection and your protectiveness throughout the years when I needed it which was often. I am not ready to let you go yet. But them again I never will be. God love you.

Happy Birthday!

Your Daughter,
Mary Catherine

There are 3 R's in school - reading, riting & rithmatic. The 4th R (religion) belongs outside of our educational system. That's what churches are for. Where do you draw the line? This 4th R is a family choice not an educational matter. If a family decides to dedicate their childs beliefs in accordance with their education I believe they should enroll their kids in a special school totally dedicated to their religion - not gov't funded but funded by their religion. It's the parent's choice - not the state (or province).

      twins from Bolton

I hear ya... I happened to attend schools all my life that were religion-based and funded by the government. When I was really young, I just assumed there were school boards for other religions too. When I realized this was unique for Roman Catholics, I wondered how non-Catholics felt about this slight. The constitution demanded a publicly funded Catholic education but that was 138 years ago. Times have changed.

I personally don't have a problem with students learning about the world's many religions and spiritual beliefs and actually view that as a positive, but when the science curriculum includes details on Adam and Eve, I'm freakin'!
