Comments for April Reign http://aprilreign.breadnroses.ca In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

They seem to go bonkers. My first beagle, back in my Ottawa days, would leap into the snow and vanish only to come bounding back up a bit later to repeat the process, each time moving forward a matter of inches.

I was looking at some snow photos from Tobermory and the Bruce peninsula. They’ve got 3-metre drifts across their roads and another drifting snow storm en route. Having lived out on the wet coast for 30+ years, getting snowed in is a distant memory although I did tend to enjoy it – for the first two days at least.

Stay warm.

They remind me of how beautiful trees are when they are dressed in snow.

That should help to kickstart their funding drive to buy that $15,000 3D printer they need.

I figured it was some kind of cyber-social experiment financed by security agencies. Given Snowden’s revelations, I think that assumption was not far off the mark.

Tumblr is especially good for keeping up with Doctor Who, Sherlock and such as well as social justice issues. :)

I have always resisted the enormous pressure to join FB, even though it would probably earn my humble blog a few more readers. The reason I haven’t joined is because I want to control my time online, I’m not looking for a social experience, and I consider it the greatest invasion of privacy the world has ever seen.
People on Facebook may be progressive but FB is definitely not. I also know a lot of younger people who have quit it for other sites. I think that seniors are FB’s growing demographic. Of course, you could also look at this way: Facebook is not progressive, but it’s a great way to keep in touch with your progressive friends. I wouldn’t feel guilty about anything one way or the other.
As for me I don’t feel I’m missing out on anything. And after Zuckerberg announced that he would be killing his own meat, there was absolutely no way that I could ever join… ;)

Avoided going back at Christmas to give via Kiva.
Considering buying something again on eBay though soon.
