Enough politics. Let’s examine some cute for a moment, shall we?
‘Zzini’s all like, ‘it’s ok, Matt. I will not let the scary, hairy woman interrupt your beauty sleep.’
The mister is so going to kill me for posting that. Well, maybe not ‘kill’ me. Perhaps just maim me a little.
So I finally bit the bullet and imported the food blog into this one. I thought it might entice me to update with more foody posts if I came at it with a less formal stance than what I have been. Weird how internal pressures cause us to not do things, eh? Plus it’s sort of more fitting with my here and there and everywhere content anyway. I’ll keep the original food blog up for a bit until I’ve decided to commit to the change, but I think I’m hip to this jive so it will likely go down soon enough.
Alright. Back to politics.
It was brought to my attention via Ann’s blog that local teacher, author, ornithologist and environmental activist, Drew Monkman has had a rather compelling letter to the editor published in today’s Examiner. With his message, I couldn not agree more…and I’m not just saying that because he was my grade 4 teacher, or because he was my son’s grades 4,5 & 6 teacher, not even because he’s been my daughter’s teacher for the last two years. His letter is passionate and expresses all of the embarassment I feel at our government’s lack of commitment to reducing emmissions & my hopes for the future of our stance on that globally and he does it as a real guy with real concerns for the generations of Canadians he has helped educate and engage with the natural world as he sees it. He’s paying attention. Are we?
