Another Budget surprise

Town to close the Centennial Pool! – that was one of the headlines to emerge from the recent Budget discussion. A couple of comments were made on the Draper report and then a “Change.org” petition was started by Meghan Thomas, a concerned Citizen. Sign the petition here. BUT checking the Town’s website a contradiction appears...

When is a large tax increase not a small tax increase? When you add a Fee

Storm water management does anybody know what it is and how we pay for it? Well the Citizens of Cobourg will soon find out just how deceitful (not my words but another commenter) Council has been and the result is that a huge increase will be coming down the pipe (no pun intended). Cobourg, until...

What can we do?

The latest outrage from the Ontario Government (OG) is the move to pay Private Clinics to perform procedures that Doug Ford – Premier of Ontario (DoFo) says the local hospitals cannot do and therefore by paying private clinics to do common procedures will reduce waiting lists.

I love Hitler Parodies!

When I can combine a couple of things in one post, I love it. Firstly I have been a great fan of “Hitler Parodies”. These internet memes have been kicking around for a long time and can cover all types of satire and parody. To quote from a website – Hitler Parody Wiki  – This...

What I think about Covid now

Covid the modern scourge, the great leveller and it is completely avoidable. But who defeated it and is it defeated?

These political dupes who cater to those deniers because of craven political hopes are screwing it up for those...

Another pet peeve

Howcum people who blog and put up vlogs and podcasts on social media always want to put the camera on themselves talking about the action before them? Surely the idea of using a camera shot is to tell a story with images? Now it is common practice to get a couple of minutes of the...

New Restrictions -papers please!

Yesterday the nearby State of Nayerit issued new regulations that shut down bars and casinos as well as large events. Restrictions were imposed on restaurants as well. Today the neighbouring State of Jalisco, where Puerto Vallarta is located announced their restrictions. Naturally because Tourism is the main industry in Jalisco their regulations are more lenient....

Crowds at the Airport

“Do not go to the airport in the afternoon”, advice bandied about by locals. Unfortunately some of us do not heed the advice. The crowd in the pic is only half of what it was when we first started to wait. PVR schedules about twenty planes in hour between 2pm and 3pm. Don’t ask me...
