Folks if the site goes down for a day like it just did, then I don’t know what to do with myself!
It’s been a creative outlet and a good place to rant, whenever I get myself bent out of shape by some assault on our collective common sense!
Don’t know how much I miss venting on these pages until I can’t do it for a couple of days!
Now that we’re back in business, here goes:
Provincial police say a Toronto man has been charged under Ontario’s stunt driving law.
Police say a car was clocked going 135 kilometres an hour in an 80 zone Saturday and passed several vehicles on Highway 35 in the Township Minden Hills.
The driver had his licence suspended and his car impounded for seven days, as called for by the legislation.
Bruce Smith is due in provincial offences court in Minden on Oct. 2.
(Oh, did I mention that the guy is 84 years old?)

Russia’s military acted in an “unnecessarily provocative” manner when its aircraft circled a Canadian ship in the Black Sea on Sunday, says Canada’s minister of national defence.
“The acts perpetrated by Russia were unnecessarily provocative and are likely to increase tensions further,” said Rob Nicholson in a written statement, saying it did not matter if the aircraft circling HMCS Toronto had posed no threat.
The ship was circled by one surveillance plane and two fighter jets, according to the defence minister’s office.
Russian officials, meanwhile, said this whole thing was a complete misunderstanding!
According to Russian Department of Defence sources, the pilots were off duty, and just out for a day of sight-seeing!
Well, if the weather is going to be this bad, ya might as well be living in Newfoundland!
The ground is slushy white in Calgary and southern Alberta but it’s going to get whiter as the region shakes off one late-summer snowstorm and braces for another that could be even bigger.
Calgary alone has already been hit by several centimetres of snow since Monday that caught drivers off guard and led to power outages in many neighbourhoods because of downed trees.
Environment Canada has now issued a new snowfall warning because of another system rolling in from British Columbia that could bring 10 to 15 centimetres, and even more in higher elevations.
The warning entails several communities west and south of the city as well as Banff and Waterton Lakes national parks and Kananaskis Country.
Environment Canada says road conditions can change quickly and suggests there could be an impact on rush hour traffic in the Calgary area Wednesday morning.
The snow is expected to taper off by the afternoon, with a return to seasonal temperatures by the weekend. (CHQR)

Folks, when it comes to “Arts and Entertainment” we have received complaints that we are too much ‘entertainment,’ and not enough ‘art!’
So……….. here’s some ‘art’ for ya!
Female porn stars donate their boobs to AIDS charity as fans pay to cop a feel!
Most charity work involves a feel-good factor but 12 Japanese adult film stars took things a touch further when they donated their breasts to a TV fundraiser.
The flirty dozen allowed porn film fans to feel their boobs in return for a charity donation as part of the 12th annual 24-hour TV event Eroticism Saves the Earth.
The telethon – dubbed Boob Aid by fans – was a fund raiser for a Stop AIDS charity organised by adult channel Sky Perfect TV with the actresses taking part all stars of the station’s shows.
The motto of the live Tokyo event was “making a social contribution while enjoying the erotic”.
Actress Rina Serina told the Tokyo Sports newspaper before the event: “I’m really looking forward to lots of people fondling my boobs. I never thought my boobs could contribute to society.”
Fellow adult film star Iku Sakuragi added: “It’s for charity. Squeeze them, donate money – let’s be happy.”
More than 2,000 blue movie fans turned up at the event, raising around £15,000.
look folks, I don’t know about you, but this looks like a “win – win” situation to us!

Just remember, boys and girls, we always do our best to support the ARTS!

Skies Safer Than Ever After TSA Prevents Passenger From Boarding Flight With Cartoonish Novelty ‘F-Bomb’ from the I-don’t-want-to-say-they’re-morons-but…-they’re-morons department.

The skies are now that much safer [uses finger and thumb to approximate appropriately small amount] thanks to the super-serious safety efforts of the TSA. (via Amy Alkon)

Ever vigilant, intellectually adept, and multi-talented (seeing as how they can spot stuff to steal even as they have their hands down your pants), they discovered the above pictured Big Scary Terroristy Thing at Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee.
It is an “F Bomb Paperweight,” a piece of art handmade by Fred Conlon and selling for $45. Quoting from the F Bomb’s blurb:
It’s never easy dropping truth bombs in the office. But “f” bombs? Always explosive fun! Fred Conlon’s recycled steel sculpture lightens up desk-side chats and tough conversations with a delightfully abstract expletive appropriate for any situation. Handmade in Utah.
Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.
How do we know the TSA managed to confiscate such a dangerous item? Because the TSA itself posted the photo above at its blog.
A black novelty bomb was detected in a carry-on bag at Milwaukee (MKE).
Accompanying the photo of the clearly-not-a-real-bomb is the following statement:
We continue to find inert grenades and other weaponry on a weekly basis. Please keep in mind that if an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays because the explosives detection professionals must resolve the alarm to determine the level of threat. Even if they are novelty items, you cannot bring them on a plane.
“Looks like a real bomb.” Yeah, about that… This looks about as real as any bomb ordered by Wile E. Coyote from ACME Products. The “fuse” appears to be recycled power lines, something no one could actually light. The TSA’s internet mouthpiece, Blogger Bob, has previously complained that bombs are hard to detect because they don’t look like their animated counterparts.
“It’s not like they’re using a cartoonish bundle of dynamite with an alarm clock strapped to it,” Bob Burns of the TSA Blog Team posted on the agency’s Web site.
He must be so relieved that someone actually walked into the Milwaukee airport with something cartoonish enough to be recognized as a bomb immediately by TSA staff — which now looks more cartoonish than the “bomb” it confiscated. (Real bombs tend to go undetected…)
Presumably, the dangerous item will be forwarded to the TSA confiscation dumping grounds where it can be sold to the highest bidder and put back into circulation. Too dangerous to put on a plane but not too dangerous to put back in the public’s hands, where it might be carried onto a bus, subway car or aerial tram. The TSA doesn’t mind if you hijack/blow up another form of mass transportation… just don’t take down an airplane.
