O.K. we all know that Indians discovered British Columbia about 15 - 20,000 years ago, (even though it wasn't called B.C. at that time) but new evidence supports the fact that Europeans went there two hundred years before we thought they did!
Official records state the first Europeans to discover British Columbia were Spanish sailors in 1774, followed by British Captain James Cook in 1778. BUT, new found coins support a theory that Sir Francis Drake discovered Canada two centuries earlier, and it’s the third 16th century coin to be discovered on British Columbia’s coastline.
Donald Trump’s Shortest Attribute Isn’t His Fingers! (Now I just have to figure out if they were talking about his attention span ......, or something else!)
In 2013, he was awarded the Guinness World Record for the longest career as a weather broadcaster at 50 years, 8 months and 21 days.
Coade joined the federal government weather service on Oct. 1, 1962, where he was trained as meteorologist. Over the years he worked in Halifax, Truro, N.S., Happy Valley-Goose Bay, N.L., and Toronto.
In the early days, Coade worked extensively in radio. In Happy Valley-Goose Bay in the late 1960s, he presented the weather each evening on CBC Television to an an audience mostly made up of United States Air Force personnel and their families stationed in Labrador during the Cold War.
(Or as they say in the weather business: "When it rains, it pours!")
O.K. now we all know that Gary Johnson knows what the city of Aleppo is, but
Mr Johnson later admitted he had "blanked" out and thought it was an acronym for something. (An acronym is a word or name formed as an abbreviation from the initial components in a phrase or a word, usually individual letters as in NATO or laser.)
Gary said he would "get smarter" following the gaffe, but the press treated him like some sort of a retard!.
Oops, sorry, we're not allowed to say 'retard' anymore, eh!
(With all the shit that Drumpf and Clinton get away with folks, the press really should cut Mr. Johnson a bit of slack!)
Seems the big cable companies are in deep doo-doo with the CRTC over their cable billing practices!
They had to start offering $25- basic cable in the spring, and "pick and pay" channels in late fall ........, but they don't mention the basic cable fees in their advertising and try to sign as many people as possible to multi year "bundles" so they can't go for the cheaper "pick and pay" rates!
