October 29th 2008 8:45 am, Snow at York U on my way to work.

Snow from the car Oct 29/08

Snowed last night, earliest that I have seen it snow in years. Welcome to winter!

The US election is almost over, for what seems to be two years the country to the south of us has been in the process of choosing who will run them for the next four years. Enough already, elect the buggers and get it over with. I am so tired of hearing about who is right. Who is a socialist (what does the states know of socialism?) It took Canada 5 weeks to set up, run the election and elect a PM. We have also gotten what we deserve, less the 50% turn out and another four years of a conservative government. Lucky us.

I figure Harper called the election early so that he would not have to compete with a Democrat winning in the US.

On the USA and socialism:
Down here we have legions of poor people that loudly PROTEST the idea of "spreading the wealth" even though they have no "wealth" of their own to spread and stand to benefit from the dreaded "spreading"...makes no sense at all.

Lovely tunes, and sorry I'm so late to the party! Yes, we took a very long time but I hope you agree that it might have been worth it this time ;)

I've not heard Ella sing this, so thank you indeedy and you're too kind to put me on your roll although my feed appears to be farked up to hell, I'll try and sort that out, xoxox
