I don't want to get political, but we are about to have a election here in Canada. The conservatives are probably going to stay in power and Harper seems to be trying to make us into "Little America". The video above is a great response to his cuts in Cultural spending. Hopefully we can get the NDP and Liberals to form a coalition government to defeat Harper. (Do you think they are that smart?)
I support the funding of Canadian arts. Do you?

Aretha Franklin is canceled. Wife and I had tickets to go see her at Rama tonight. We get a call last night, letting us know that the "star" has canceled the show for personal reasons, but we will be reimbursed the purchase price of the tickets.
One of the women I worked with cracked a joke that there "Won't be any R-E-S-P-E-C-T for Aretha tonight"
Arrgh! and I was really looking forward to going.

Eldest turns 16 today, Wow! Hard to believe he is 16, I remember his birth like yesterday. He is a great kid, a bit touchy and can feel slighted very easily, but I think he is going to turn out to be a really great warm hearted guy. He is almost as tall as me now, long shaggy hair (we are forever getting notes telling us to have his hair cut for school), two earrings now (the third hole that he did himself tore apart!) and is just nice to be around. So happy 16th birthday Eldest, we may not always get along but I'm glad I'm your Dad.
I took him to see the Foo Fighters on Saturday, great concert .. read the reviews. I took a bunch of pictures with my cell phone. Not great but I will try to post some of them in the next few days.

Today sucks, Wife told me this morning that a friends son was shot and killed last night. This is hard to process, he was 35, I've known him since he was 15. We only see him once a year but we are are very close to his father and step-mother. This type of crap has to end.
I also just found out that Arthur C. Clarke passed away last night. There is to much death right now.
Hopefully with spring better things will begin.
