Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

Tits up on the pavement!

To whom it may concern:

The small town of Wawa, Ont., says its giant Canada goose landmark is nearly cooked (i.e. rusted from the weather), so the community is seeking financial help to pay for a new version of the massive metal bird.

Wawa claims on its website that the 53-year-old steel Goose Monument is "one of the most photographed landmarks in North America," drawing "millions of visitors" to its perch at the junction between the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 101 in northern Ontario. But the monument is showing significant signs of deterioration, so the municipal government is now trying to raise money to buy a new goose for approximately $250,000.

A website dedicated to replacing the goose is calling for donations in increments of $50, with each donor's name to be written on a feather to be hung at the town's community centre. The town has set a fundraising goal of $500,000.

On a side note, once while hitch-hiking out to Vancouver in my teen years I got stuck in WAWA and spent four or five hours standing in the shadow of this thing trying to get a ride!

One of the members of the group "Crowbar" meanwhile, got stuck in the exact same spot for over a day, and they wrote a song about it called "Tits Up on the Pavement!"
