Die? Who said anything about dying? Cept Rap but we know he's just a big ol teddy bear. Armed to the teeth, mind, but still, as long as he takes his meds, we're perfectly safe. Nothing can go wrong.

NAMING OF PARTS
    Henry Reed

To-day we have naming of parts. Yesterday,
We had daily cleaning. And to-morrow morning,
We shall have what to do after firing. But to-day,
To-day we have naming of parts. Japonica
Glistens like coral in all of the neighboring gardens,
          And to-day we have naming of parts.

This is the lower sling swivel. And this
Is the upper sling swivel, whose use you will see,
When you are given your slings. And this is the piling swivel,
Which in your case you have not got. The branches
Hold in the gardens their silent, eloquent gestures,
          Which in our case we have not got.

This is the safety-catch, which is always released
With an easy flick of the thumb. And please do not let me
See anyone using his finger. You can do it quite easy
If you have any strength in your thumb. The blossoms
Are fragile and motionless, never letting anyone see
          Any of them using their finger.

And this you can see is the bolt. The purpose of this
Is to open the breech, as you see. We can slide it
Rapidly backwards and forwards: we call this
Easing the spring. And rapidly backwards and forwards
The early bees are assaulting and fumbling the flowers:
          They call it easing the Spring.

They call it easing the Spring: it is perfectly easy
If you have any strength in your thumb: like the bolt,
And the breech, and the cocking-piece, and the point of balance,
Which in our case we have not got; and the almond-blossom
Silent in all of the gardens and the bees going backwards and forwards,
          For to-day we have naming of parts.

Your relatives in Dangle WERE wasted. They were hanged, beheaded, drawn, quartered, castrated, burnt at the stake, shot by their neighbours, boiled in oil, buried alive, drowned, and what remained was sprayed with disinfectant. The ground they had occupied was scraped down to bare rock and the soil itself exorcised before being made into bricks for a pigsty. The rocks were sowed with salt and all traces of the McBrides of Dangle erased from all records of Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, the Isle of Man, and the rest of Europe. Did you know that the ship carrying the McBrides who escaped put them ashore on an island between Prince Charles Island and the Melville Peninsula? That they were rescued by Yu'piks who took pity on them, believing that no human beings could be as miserable and wretched a lot as these were? That after doing their rescuers dirty -- VERY dirty -- they were taken up by a British prison ship and eventually wandered into Blind River? That they were only accepted in Blind River because there was a need for people to stir the sludge in the waste water treatment plant by hand and/or wading in it for twenty-five cents a month and all they could eat, and at that they were overpaid? Are you aware of the "Let's Finish the McBrides" Act passed in Ireland last month and currently in the offices of the Irish Secret Service, the infamous, deadly and ubiquitous Táin Bó Cúailnge?

Just remember their motto: "If you run, you'll only die tired."

I'll clear the counter and get out the cutting boards. Any of you want to come over to cut up veggies to freeze this evening? I spent a couple of hours in the garden this morning picking lots of buckets of stuff. It's supposed to freeze overnight. Hot peppers, green peppers, sweet peppers - lots of peppers.

I'll throw in a sawbuck.

Today, traffic on the two main arterials which vee to either side of me about 400m from me will be heavy. I am in the midst of the largest shopping district in NB. It's catchment area includes most of NB, all of PEI and a large portion of NS. Yesterday, in the wind, rain and wet flurries, I was silly enough to attempt to go to Costco (Price Club) just before noon for eggs and to scout the Kissmeass crap as I figured it might not be terribly crowded. Silly me. I only got close enough to see the lineups of vehicles trying to get into the parking lot and turned frightened and sped away. I went back just before 5 and only had to stand at the check out for 15 minutes but I got my free half dozen Omega 3 eggs and a 1 kg Vito's lasagna. The lasagna alone is worth the wait. Mum's fav. It is now sunny and I expect this opening day of the new Target store located about 300m from me will create vehicular chaos. I think I'll head out for groceries sooner than later. So, if you want anything, you had better let me know sooner than later.

There's already a MOAB in Utah. We could rename it "Mother" or "Khandu" or even "Bullville" though. Are you thinking of running it as a cult-like place, Amos? It would make a nice retirement community for old folkers, and people we don't like we could just fix the brakes on their cars and, well, let them drive.

SRS... metal pan, I hope. I have heard stories of glass pans used thusly exploding even if they were used thusly previously. In any case, I have found the best way is to thaw such in the fridge for a couple of days first or to heat them slowly at a temp below boiling for a few hours and crank up the oven for the 40 minutes or so. I gave up following "cook from frozen" directions long ago on accounta I wants er HOT! buddy.

So, I'm up yer Sobeys yesserday fer ta get gift cards counta Sobeys put on that deal where ya get 95 Air Miles fer every $200 in gift cards right? That's $10 so that's 5%. And, soon as ya spend a dollar, that's more n 5% per yer annum eh? Even if ya buy a GeezlyIC at the Bank a Nova Scotia and lock up yer dollar fer five years ya only get 2.3%. Now, I might be just a good ol Kent County boy but I knows a good investment when I sees one. Smart shopper eh? Eh? I mean, ya gotta eat, right?

So, I says to the lass that I wants some $200 gift cards, 15. She comes back with two. I ask, she says, "You said a $200 card and a $15 card. No? I wants 15 $200 cards. She says, "Gift cards come in $10, $15, $20, $50, $100 and $200. How many of each do you want?" I says I wants 15 $200 gift cards. Blank stare. Like a deer lookin at a lantern just before the loud noise, which is what came to mind at the time as I was getting kinda annoyed. I says I wants $3000 of $200 gift cards? that would be 15 $200 cards? $3000 in total. She had a look on her face like a deer after the loud noise. She said, "I'll have to call the supervisor?" and she proceeded to explain why.

Shelly, the super on duty, was about three cashes over, setting out cash stuff. Says I, "Shelly!" and gives her a c'mere nod. Like a hello nod but with a sideways inflection added. Niceties exchanged, I says I wants 15 $200 gift cards. Beboop, beboop with the super code and the super card and she says to the lass, "Go ahead." The lass talked about how nobody has ever asked for that many cards before and other similar yak whilst she processed my request. Me, I counted the cards as she put them though. 1425 Air Miles are mine.

There's an old song? Jesus put his money in the Bank of Nova Scotia, And he never ever ever got it back. I guess he wasn't a good ol Kent County boy. Probly shopped at yer Real Atlantic Stupidstore too eh?

There's Trono, an Otwa, an Mnreall, an Halfax, an even Sandrews. My question is: if you divide 1,425 into an outgoing and a return, do they kick you off the plane a half mile short each way? Or a mile short on the return? Is the plane still in the air when they do this or do they land and make you walk half a mile to the terminal and (I presume) your luggage? If he wanted a one-way he might to Moose Jaw or Regina or someplace on Baffin Island.

The lasagna is wrapped in foil and is put back into the Pyrex© pan it was formed in. If I put it in the cold oven then turn on the oven the whole thing heats more gradually and the pan doesn't break. I wouldn't put a glass pan with a frozen lasagna into a hot oven.

I get it now, SRS. Dunno why I didn't clue in on placing the lasagna in a cold oven. DOH! Enjoy yer scoff.

Sobeys is not expensive if you are a smart shopper. I am a regular at three grocery stores, the others being The Real Atlantic Superstore and the Coop. I buy eggs and certain other goods at Costco but I only go there when required on accounta it's so friggin busy. I read the weekly fliers on Wednesday and the sales start Thursday. It is extremely seldom that I buy anything not "on sale". I buy certain things at certain times of year. This is especially so in fall because crops are being harvested, beef cattle are being barned, etc. I buy my Xmas turkey when the turkey war is on. Every now and then, something unexpected happens. Like that there Italian fellah that said he'd never have gay people in his adverts. Last week, his pasta was selling for 99p a pound. Sobeys had a deal on Air Miles Cash spending... use $20 Air Miles Cash get 25 Air Miles (= $2.62). Pasta keeps well and even better if you plastic it and put it in the old US fridge downstairs. 21 pounds of of lasagna, spaghetti, macaroni, etc, should last me a while.

As for the gift cards, I expect $3000 will last about 16 months at present prices. If Her Majesty becomes whimsical again and decides that she and her old pals, including Barack, might have a bit of fun bombing the shit out of Iran, or Syria, or... my estmate would, of course, be adjusted downward. With a term of 16 months, I will still average a 5% ROR on my investment and that includes an allowance for the pittance of interest I would earn if I left the money in my TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account) at the Bank of Nova Scotia. I AM a smart shopper.

And I thought I was a smart shopper.

Of course, if you live in Canada you can never tell when you'll be snowed in for several weeks or a beaver will gnaw off your leg and you will be stumping around until help arrives. Why, my Great-Great Uncle Randolph spent an entire winter snowed in in his cabin outside of Dawson back in 1901 -- he finally had to eat his furniture just to stay alive until breakup. If he'd been a smart shopper he would have had all sorts of stuff, including his partner, frozen when he could get to them easily. Instead he ate things like boiled leg of table. Uncle Randolph was powerful glad when people finally came to see how he was, long about August (he wasn't very well liked). By then the snow had melted down to the top of the chimney and Uncle R. was feasting on mosquito stew. He finally got out by climbing up the chimney (the fire below helped speed him along). Eventually he moved to Blind River, Ontario and opened a lumberyard/delicatessen. In 1912 he was devoured by termites.

Poor old Randy. Termites? How sad. Uncle "Peg Leg" Henry Pascal never had a problem with them. His problems were with the cops because he was a rum runner... a bootlegger. He stayed at Gramps house in winter and delivered groceries for Harmers and the Willet Fruit where Gramps was the "shipper" (2ic to the guy that owned the company). Uncle Henry would get 5 gallon cans of "Hand Brand Alcohol" delivered on the CNR from Uppity Canada or from runners off the coast of NB and NS. He would keep the cans in Gramps' back yard and deliver them on a toboggan. He delivered groceries by toboggan under Gramps' employ so that worked well for the bootlegging cover. Great story about the night he had a bunch under a blanket when he was going by the cop shop but never mind that. Better yet, he sent Uncle Chic for baccy one day as he was too drunk to navigate. Chic was about 5 years old. Pegleg tamped a pipe and lit it and got Uncle chic ta put his finger in the pipe whereupon, Chic screamed blue murder. Gamma raced in and that was that. Uncle Henry was out the door, never to return.

Thence came the tale, and song, of Henry Pegleg Pascal. Bereft of his winter abode, he sought refuge in the Queens County Jail. He was successful. He used his peg leg to kick in the plate glass window of the liquor store in Chipman, nb.ca. Drunk as a skunk but smart as a fox. And snug as a bug in a rug with three square a day until spring. And, then, back ta bootleggin.

The company fired him, of course, and he took his turkey on the road. Chi became an early environmentalist, sabotaging high-lines and causing log jams. He got so he loved trees, a true tree-hugger.
