clever huh?

Give me the fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. You can keep your sterile truth for yourself.

Tip For Spring Living #5:

At this time of year a lot of people make the mistake of putting away their winter clothing too soon. Don't do that. Just in case of a sudden change in weather, fasten your skidoo suit to your waist whenever you go out. If you are worried about how this will look with your shorts just tell people you have a Siamese twin and "he isn't doing too well".



Important Information?


You should never put the new antlers of a deer to your nose and smell them. They have little insects that crawl into the nose and devour the brain. - Kenko

If you watch TV or read the paper or browse on the Internet then no doubt you are constantly subjected to warnings of dire consequences should you do, or fail to do, something. It is hard for the average person (or even someone with a staggeringly massive intellect) to know which of these warnings do actually require heeding and which can be more usefully discarded from one's brain pan.

For instance, should we be eating eggs or not? If we do eat eggs should we chuck the yummy yellowy bits and only devour the white jiggly outer case in which aforementioned sun-coloured tastiness is contained? At one time eggs (in whole form at least) were considered worse for you than a daily mainlining of motor oil but then they seemed to be okay again. It's hard to keep up.

And exercise. I read the other day that exercise causes your brain to shrink to the point where you actually believe you are capable of giving 110%. I've never been what you'd want to call a whiz at math but if that is what exercise does to your brain then I think I am going to lay down right now! But then I see another segment on that morning show with the seven hosts saying that vigourous exercise improves brain function! Wha?

My point is that a lot of these warnings simply cannot be taken seriously. They can not all be true. I propose that we go back to the old personal experience/trail and error way of figuring things out. Do something. If nothing bad happens it's okay.

Me? I putting fresh deer antlers in my nose right now!

As a special favour to Danny Sleebeegar we have agreed to run the following announcement from July 2006 again. Danny tells us that he has still not had any success convincing anyone.

It was too dark in there

I would like to take this opportunity to very publicly come out of the closet. This will make the fifth time and I hope this one sticks. Really, I'm not doing this again. I can't be spending all my time and energy on this anymore.

Since I first came out in the fall of 1995, pretty much no one has believed me. I keep trying but it's just not taking - the coming out I mean - the whole gay thing has been working out great!

I've pretty much given up on my brother and my mum (I feel my dad may be beginning to catch on - he gave me one of those firefighter calendars last Christmas - but then he always wanted me to be one so its hard to say). They don't seem to be listening.

I really hope though that this time my life partner Phil reads this and catches on so he can stop feeling guilty about all the sex we're having - and I mean right now! While I'm writing this!

I guess I'll stop there since I've dropped the pen again but that's all I really wanted to say anyway, thanks.

Danny informs us that he and Phil were married in June of last year. He hopes this finally convinces Phil.
