There was a recent online pole on one of our news outlets here in Canada that stated 80% of people wish to be anonymous if they win the lotto instead of the mass publicity they put you threw. 5% said they where fin with the publicity 10% had no clue And 5% said they don't play the lotto. This tells me 2 things - 1 people don't want to be splashed all over the media if they win money (lets face it, it's a risk to their family safety) and 2 95% of people who read the news on this outlet play the lotto. I have always said it's a big risk to have people splashed all over TV and the internet when they win. So someone grabs you kid or your mom or your sister and wants money. We all know most of the time this does not end well even if you do pay. So why the hell would any sane person want this? You put up with the risk though because it changes your life and your families life for the better forever. I'm with a lot of people on this and think you should not hav


I had an encounter with our little news paper near the end of it's life. They wanted to interview me after seeing something I posted on Twitter about there not being any heat in the building and us literally being painfully cold as it had turned brutally cold that night and the heat was left off. See the guy came over asked me about it and I gave all the details of it. There was more than just me talking about it on Twitter as well, so you can see it's not just me saying "I'm cold". Yet they decided to not run the story. The thing is they spent at least my lifetime not rocking the boat here in town. There where to say the least as far back as I remember not a relevant publication when it came to news. There was in the past also a forum for city folks to post on, on the internet. It was well used and well viewed in it's day. Many rather use it to find out what is happening that read the paper. There was a time a bunch of us where talking abo


This is the new stuffy "Fluffykins" on my lap. She is a big kitty who is a bit aloof. You can see her size compared to me. I'm 5'11.5" and 356 lbs. So yeah, she is a bit toy. I am just thinking how outright manly it is to collect stuffed toys and to well, play with them now and then. So manly and so adult - befitting my 51 years of age.


This is my brother and my Mom. Mom is dead and I literally don't know what has happened to my brother. He was in a care home and they moved him and I have no idea where and he has no phone of his own. Thus I have not talked to him in around 2 years now. I keep wondering "is he alive" or "is he doing OK"? I have no contact with his son as well and I'm rather sure he had not talked to his son in a while the last time we spoke on the phone. There is a lot of issues I won't go into. Lets just say, it's a complicated situation. The will never be letting him out, I know this much. He needs the help they give him and can't be relied upon to take care of himself. So it's for the best. I just keep wondering though. There was an issue where he got Mom to sign a loan for him and incurred a great deal of debt then took off leaving Mom holding the bag. She lost it all and I swore I would kick his ass if I ever saw him again. Well the y
