Ontario Goes Green – Green Homes

June 8, 2009

The McGuinty govt. of Ontario has gone all the way in an attempt to save the planet by introducing the “Green Homes Plan”

In order to be truly Green, no manufactured building materials will be allowed in new homes.

Here are just a couple of the new models that will be available soon.

This home will be of interest  to the first time home buyer or those looking to downsize after retirement.

Below is a new complex and will be of special interest to those with a busy lifestyle. Besides all the other benefits of living in a MUD HUT you can see the community clothes drying facilities in the center courtyard.

Thank you Mr. McGuinty and Mr. Smitherman for your help in making Ontario a “Green Province” we can be all proud of.

Sorry if we questioned your vision.  Some thought you were an idiot.

Well, you proved us wrong!

In only a couple of weeks our new Green Homes will be powered  intermittently by Majestic wind turbines and we will have light and electricity………………sometimes.

Burger King Calls Global Warming "Baloney"

June 3, 2009

Editor:

I don’t eat much fast food but if this  sign was in front of a fast food near me I’d make an exception. Hats of to the independent operator of the Burger Kings mentioned in this story.

Global Warming is a huge fraud and if you don’t understand by now – You aren’t  too Bright!

If you live near one of these Burger Kings drop in, buy a burger and show your support.

Enjoy the story

Burger King Calls Global Warming “Baloney”

Posted by Chris Davis on Wed, May 27, 2009 at 8:19 PM

UPDATE: This story has been updated here. A Burger King Corporation spokesperson has told the Flyer that the signage in question was limited to “five stores.” Flyer readers have reported at least 10 stores that at one point had the signage. Whatever the number, the language was put up by a local franchiser, and does not reflect BK’s corporate outlook.acf4/1243473985-bk1.jpg I must admit that the nightmares I have about Burger King’s regally creepy mascot already leave a bad taste in my mouth. But if the fast food industry’s most famous underdogs are really taking a stand against global warming science, I’m breaking up with the oh-so-delicious Whopper for good. And I mean it this time.Businesses usually don’t court political controversy, but signs at (at least) two Memphis Burger King locations read: “Global Warming is Baloney.” According to one employee at the Burger King on Union Avenue and Pauline, that’s no mistake.

Care to eavesdrop on my incredibly strange conversation with a female BK employee who didn’t identify herself? Read on.

Me: Hi, I’m calling from the Flyer about your sign. Does Burger King really think global warming is baloney?
BK: [Hangup]
Me:(calling back): Your sign out front says global warming is baloney.
BK: I don’t see that sir.
Me: Well it does.
BK: I don’t see that sir… I change the signs and that sign’s been up for a week.
Me: Well, I have pictures that I took this afternoon [cross conversation ensuring I’m calling the correct BK. I am]
Me: So there’s no question that your sign said it and so did one in Midtown. I want to know if it was on purpose or if it was a prank someone pulled on you.
BK: Let me get the manager. [several minutes of dead air then the same or very similar voice picks up.]
BK: Who were you holding for?
Me: A manager, about the sign. I have pictures of the sign and people have called me upset. I just want to know if it’s a mistake or not so I can report it. [rehash of previous conversation]
BK: Let me go outside and look at the sign and I’ll call you right back. [exchange of contact info]
9050/1243473801-1243468242-img_0153.jpg
[phone rings, I answer]
BK: The sign was put up yesterday.
Me: And it’s not a mistake?
BK: No.
Me: It reflects the opinion of BK international?
BK: Yes. Would you like to talk to the home office? I can give you a number.
Me: I’ve got the number, I’ve already contacted them. Thanks.

Laugh-In comic Martin dies at 86

Laugh-In comic Martin dies at 86

Dan Rowan and Dick Martin

Actor and comedian Dick Martin, whose series Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In made stars of Goldie Hawn and Lily Tomlin, has died in California, aged 86.

Martin, who also directed a string of TV shows, was being treated for respiratory problems in a Santa Monica hospital, a family spokesman said.

“He had some severe problems for many years, and had pretty much stopped breathing a week ago,” he added.

The series took US TV by storm when it began in January 1968.

Rather than relying on scripted song-and-dance segments, it offered quickfire jokes, political satire and slapstick from a team of young actors and comedians, creating catchphrases such as “sock it to me!”.
