    Broken Area - Episode 2, Think Happy Thoughts and Play The Ukulele

    After today's events it is hard to have any words, (though I do at the end of this episode).  So we tried to change the subject to some happy stuff.  Isabelle started us out with a ukulele number.  She bought it last week, at, of all places, Future Shop.  I wonder if she can got the extended warranty....

    Isabelle also talked about her progress learning Arabic, which is pretty cool.  I have enough trouble with English...

    And, as promised, at the end I rant about guns, gun culture and why you can't carry mustard gas around with you.  

    Let us know how you like Episode 2.

    # Glad the house is getting back to normal.

    # On guns; couldn't agree more. There will be a national conversation about this, but you might want to cover your ears. People without logic on their side tend to scream the loudest.

    # Give the kids an extra hug...

    Hey Jim

    The whole thing has me dumbfounded. We are so much alike, Canadians and Americans, perhaps more alike than any two peoples in the Western World. But, there are a couple of big differences, and this is the biggest. I honestly cannot get my head around it.

    The kids got an extra hug yesterday. Hey we even get a dryer today!

    The ukulele is a fun instrument, and I love the summery vibe it gives off. :)

    The "ktb" root means "write" in Hebrew, too! A "ketubah" is a written marriage contract; "Ketuvim" (b and v are the same letter in Hebrew, differentiated by a diacritical mark) is the final section of the Jewish sacred books and literally means "writings".

    Personally, I think it's time to put the idea of repealing the Second Amendment on the table. At the very least, there wouldn't be that cudgel to aim at any reasonable regulation.
