I am sorry, but that is nonsense, Rapparee. Chinga could not be identical to Chongo--she has made a success of ife and taken responsibility for her situation. I suspect that in Chongo's case, the real identity of the mother was never known...

Finding an identical chromosomal pattern in no way indicates the success or failure of a given individual. My Great-Uncle Howard, for example, was by the end of his life looked up to by the community, whereas his identical twin helped pull on the rope.

Chinga is a product of Amos's fevered imagination. Chongo is a product of mine. I can see no reason why they would be considered identical genetically or in any other way. Furthermore, Chongo came first! Chinga would never even have been concocted by Amos, had he not been inspired first by my stories about Chongo. She is a mere spinoff of an original idea, kind of like some of those other shows that resulted from the cast of Mary Tyler Moore as time went by.

Amos has referred to Chongo as an "ideational monstrosity", but has shown no remorse for creating an ideational monstrosity of his own in Chinga.

To Amos, I say: Fie, sir! Fie! For shame!

Speaking of maters, tomato prices in Juneau, Alaska in the middle of tomato growing season are $3.49 a pound. I protest.

Well, this apple didn't fall far from Mom's tree. Liked Tears in my Ears so much I actually shared it in Sin City. Wonder what Gram Parson's take would have sounded like.

Rogers cable tells me they now require $2 + HST (13%) to send me a paper invoice by post. The advertisements, often two of each at a time, sometimes two per week and at least three per month, are free. Not, this seems odd to me as I have TV, tel, net and cell with them at present. The only further services I might entertain are not offered in any of their packages so why the adverts? I hasten to add, such are in large envelopes and all of the paper is the fancy, expensive, environmentally incorrect, shiny stuff. I am of a mind to write a god damned letter!

But... I suppose they would just do the same thing I do with their crap.

Call them up, complain, say you are thinking of switching to another provider who will offer you a much better deal. They will offer you a much better deal. You accept it...after making them sweat a bit. ;-) (There are other providers who can give you that better deal...depending on your location to some extent. I have friends who've recently dumped either Rogers or Bell for lesser known companies who charge them way less.)(Be advised, however, that if you do drop either Rogers or Bell, they will call you up repeatedly and try to persuade you to rejoin them by offering you various cheaper deals.)

I'm thinking of doing this myself...have not done so thus far due to sheer inertia, and the fear of change. ;-)

Watch the eensy-weensy tiny type. When magnified it might read something like, "This price is good for 48 hours after signing and will thereafter revert to the regular rate. The regular rate is based upon usage: if you use it, you're screwed. This contract shall run for six hundred years and cannot be revoked, broken, or disavowed by the client without prior permission of the company. A minimum usage period equal to or greater than one-half, or fifty percent, of the length of this contract must have been used prior to consideration of revocation of this contract by the company."

They are livin' in a mansion somewhere and partyin' with the other billionaires at the golf club or gatherin' at Bohemian Grove or somethin'.

Useta be you could shoot yer way into Capone's clubhouse...if you had the firepower and the guts...but now no one even knows where the clubhouse is!

When I get elected, I will find the bosses. I will smoke 'em out from their corporate hideaways and their offshore party palaces. I will send in the FBI, the CIA, and the Marines and drag them hotshots outta their hidey-holes and put 'em up in fronta Congressional indictment. The fur is gonna fly. Heads are gonna roll.

I know. Pretty shocking, isn't it?

I couldn't get through life completely without a bit of Don Cherry now and then, so I hunt up his amusing rants on Youtube when I need a fix.

Anyway, this is why I am so unconventional in my views and so deeply subversive regarding the system, you see? I have not lived on a diet of network TV all my life the way most North Americans have, I have instead read books and used the computer (lately). Avoiding TV results in avoiding about 95% of the system's propaganda and commercial messages. In the novel 1984 it was illegal to avoid TV. It's a great social programming tool, and I know it, and am glad to not have it in my life. (although, yes, there are a few things worth watching there...amidst an ocean of stuff that isn't)

I watched Hockey Night in Canada for about 10 years (during my 20s), then lost interest in it after that. Too many damn teams now, as far as I'm concerned.

But I'll watch "the Cherry" anytime in order to get fashion tips. ;-D

There are 3 periods. Each period lasts 20 minutes (of actual playing time). If you have a tie at the end of the third period, then an overtime period (or sometimes even 2 or 3 overtime periods) must be played until someone scores a goal, thus ending the game. If no one ever succeeds in scoring another goal, overtime periods must continue being played until..................umm......well, for a pretty damn long time, eh?

;-)

That's as best I can remember it. I never played hockey myself, cos I grew up mostly in New York State, not Canada, and hockey wasn't big where I was living. The games that were big around there were football, basketball, and baseball.

I actually watched hockey this year AND enjoyed it. I wish they had a strike and lockout every year. Somehow, a hockey season that starts and finishes in warm weather is just not Canuck to me. Somehow, watching hockey and having the air condtioners on just ain't right.

Many years ago, I became a fan of a much less violent and far more slow paced game which begins it's preseason games in just about 31 hours. Dallas and Miami. I still have to wait until Friday to see my fav team, the New England Patriots, play Yankee Football.

Puck never played hockey. He was a fairy.

Yankee football is far from slow whilst the ball is in play. AND, the speed with which information is analysed during play and a plan of action is formulated after each and every down is blinding! The timing and use of the hurry-up in a nail biter! I could go on but I fear youse are already bored to tears.

I truly can think of fewer things more boring to watch than target shooting, be it with bow and arrows, handgun, or rifle. It's like watching the grass grow, but slower. Unless you're involved, of course. After that comes diving -- I keep hoping someone will rip their trunks or that their suit will come off during the dive, and the same goes for gymnastics.

I respect and admire the skill any of these takes, but....
