Holy cow ........ I placed a blog a few days ago in response to the Colorado shootings regarding putting into place some type of gun control and couldn't believe some of the responses I got.
Many agreed and were in favor of some type of legal control being established, however there appears to be lots of folks that feel this 'right to bear arms' stuff if really a good idea, come on now, do you people really need an assault rifle, what ever would this be used for ???? Shooting people in a theatre, or a school, or a McDonald's restaurant perhaps??!!
I gotta say it, get real Rednecks!

Well, sorry all you 'right to bear arms' folks down there in the USA, forget the constitution, it was written in a different time, we are no longer playing cowboys and indians, now is the time to put into place a program for some serious gun control down there!
Your government needs to get some balls, and forget the next vote by doing something about this before more of your citizens die!
I may sound harsh, but this is a big issue with me. Here in Canada, we have troubles too as does the rest of the world, however not anyone and everyone can go buy any old weapon they feel like. What does one need with an assult weapon for goodness sakes? We have a gun registry, and although many disagree with it, it is at least a step. We don't allow any ordinary citizen to purchase the types of weapons that are used and purchased there, or any other type of gun for that matter.
Sure, things happen here but the guns for the most part are pistols or some types of rifles (hunting is a huge thing in Canada and this is the only reason for rifle sales) that cannot spit out ammunition by the hundreds per second!
I am not denying that guns can be and are obtained illegally by people, if you know how and where to go of course. However for the majority of people the purchase of a gun is done through legal means, and they have to first be approved, they are not just sold over the counter to any random person, they are thoroughly checked out first, and only after approval is the purchase is made, and the gun released.
Please gets some guts and speak out about this if you agree! MAKE YOUR GOVERNMENT AWARE OF WHAT YOU BELIEVE TO BE GOOD AND RIGHT .... REMIND THEM THEY NEED TO GET SOME GUTS PLEASE AND PUT A PLAN OF GUN CONTROL INTO ACTION, or the next time one of your 'right to bear arms' citizens may cross the border to our country or any other accessable country and kill us too!

Another shooting tragedy. What is with this world I ask? The news was just on and this was the lead story ..... I guess nothing happens in Canada, huh?
Anyway, to all of you affected by this true tragedy, my prayers and thoughts are with you at this time, I am very saddened by this news story.

Well, I always was proud however today my pride became swollen twice it's usual size. My youngest daughter (I have two) just passed a HUGE exam to finalize her position in a new university program, well, new for her anyway. she was accepted pending one mark required into their Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program.
She has finally decided what she would like ti do with her professional life after already receiving to university degrees, one in Arts, which was a prerequisite required for her Education degree. While out there student teaching, she decided this was not for her, and got serious about what would better suit her now that she is mature enough to make a decision based on more that getting the summer off and a not too bad pay cheque.
I guess getting to the point she obtained a mark of 99% in the prerequisite exam today! She is finally on her way, as I know her well enough to know this is so much more suited to who she is.
She was so much more difficult than my first daughter who wanted from Grade 2 to become a Dr., and the only decision with her career from then forward was just what specialty she should go into. She decided on geriatric care of the elderly and absolutely loves it. She runs the Alzheimer's Clinic at our local hospital, has her own clinic on the side and does hospital work with the elderly patients there that are in the last days of their life.
Now, I will have two girls pursuing medicine, and I could not be more proud.
I do wish their dad would have been alive long enough to see it all. He passed away just as our eldest daughter finished med. school, and prior to our youngest finishing her Education degree. I do know he was looking down on us all today and was partially behind the results of the exam, he too is very proud today! .....

with pretty flowers, bushes, and trees, it grows just fine. I spent almost 3 hours out there today, I think I am running out of things to garden, but loving every minute of it!
I am totally exhausted from the sunshine, fresh air and the work/exercise.
