Apparently not noticing one’s furnace isn’t working can lead to health issues. So, two days ago I realized that the furnace in the house where I live was not working. This was because the temperature had been slowly dropping for some time, and I realized that turning up the temperature (assuming drafts and such) did… Continue reading Exposed! And a Target?
The municipalities of North Simcoe have a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan Survey currently active (as of 2021-02-23). I highly recommend that if you live in or near Midland, Penetanguishine, Tiny or Tay that you participate in the survey. This is the easiest way to get your input to the municipalities, and seems to be… Continue reading PSA: Northern Aspirations
Almost thirty years ago my parents were looking at buying a home, and that got me interested in the question, “How long before one reaches the break even point on the purchase of a residence compared to a lease?” The calculations are only for the numerical/financial side of that question, not questions like increased freedom… Continue reading Archive: Rent or Own?
I’m not perfect, neither are you: “Suck it up buttercup!” Okay, I have hard time saying things like that, even though there are times I am a bit of an ass. As the little quote says, “I’m not perfect”. The thing of which I have to remind myself is that neither is anyone else. We… Continue reading Person Imperfect
Headlines which are catchy (and possibly ‘cheesy’) belong on a personal blog like this one that is personal revelations from the author(s), political opinion, creativity, and (trying to be) artistic prose and poetry, not on a news website, portal, or other source of what should be trusted journalism. Yes, it’s fun to come up with… Continue reading ‘Catchy / Cheesy’ and Opinionated Headlines Here — Not a News Site
I may sometimes seem like I “keep on ticking” no matter what happens, or am constantly ‘making noise’ about things. In truth though this is as much acting that way in order to try to make it reality as it a reflection of myself. Unfortunately I am not really so indefatigable, and in fact lately… Continue reading Not So Indefatigable
It not “mirror, mirror on the wall” but the “sound of silence”. Have I asked too many difficult questions, are people simply busy, or what?
I’ve fixed some issues with the site that resulted from the change of primary domain, especially redirection of ‘pretty names’ to page permalink.
The Government of Ontario has quite a number of surveys (and in some cases other participation opportunities) occurring that are currently open and that’s even without the constant comments periods on proposed changes or additions to regulations. You only have a chance of being heard by these official processes if you participate in them, so… Continue reading If You Don’t Talk, They Won’t Listen
I discovered that a rather delicious meal I ate contained milk. It was unpleasant because I am lactose intolerant. When I experience the symptoms thereof, for some reason my mind has created this little poem (it might be a haiku): My bowels, like water They move me To tears. It’s usually not quite that bad,… Continue reading My Bowels, Like Water
I’ve decided to rename my blog (although I will be maintaining redirects from the old addresses of thecshore.com and www.thecshore.com). I did this because the ‘cshore/c-shore’ domain space is quite crowded and I am hoping by making my blog domain name and title more unique that it will be more easily found in search engines.… Continue reading Renaming Blog
Many, even in my own country of Canada, might think that homemade pancakes every morning would be a dream come true, but after two and half weeks, I’m glad I have more variety again! It’s not just because I was making the pancakes for myself, alone during a pandemic, or that for the last few… Continue reading Poor Man’s Pancakes
Since I’m working on planning my future and I happened to find out that the local college is having a virtual open house, I decided to take their ‘Career Assessment’, which turns out to be a fairly standard personality test (which wasn’t really all that surprising). It came back with, as usual for the tool… Continue reading Personal(ity) Minority
Today is Donald Trump’s last day as the president of the United States, and the first day of their incoming president who at least speaks of unifying the country. The US, for better or worse, is a major influence on the world, and most especially on my own country, Canada (sharing a rather long border,… Continue reading Today the World Will Be a Little Better — We Need That!
No it’s not the ‘big red button’! T -2 means out reality is going to get a bit of reset toward sanity, normalcy, and cooperation. My goal is to also use this opportunity for a ‘personal reset’. I mentioned that I had wrapped up all my projects. Well, I’ve also started the process of rebuilding… Continue reading T -2 And Personal Reset
I must have fallen asleep between starting and finishing my Covid Cut Day 21 post since I posted on Jan 12 that it was T -9 to Biden’s inauguration and then end of Trump’s presidency. I’ve now corrected that to T -8. Today is five days after that error, which means there are three days… Continue reading Fixing a Post and It’s T -3
