Good morning everyone, have hardly had time to read the goings on let alone post. Status I agree your rates are reasonable and I for one have never had better service or good advice on Detroit Iron. The latex stuff, you may be informed but its not really my thing. Now rw giving a lap dance, well who knows. These plumbers are great at strutting their rear clevage. Must run as that bloody hotel is waiting.

Stellar performance of the Canadian economy continues with 52,000 new jobs (mostly high-end) created in Sept. Kudos to Harper and Flaherty for their responsible stewardship. Feel free to vent one way or the other.

Ace of Bass: A few years back I also lost a small dog (Pom /mix) around that area and finally a co worker spotted him around the Trans Pro Terminal.And I live down in the Manitou Park area. This little guy was missing for 2 weeks in spring time weather and when I did find him he was nothing but skin and bones.His little collar was just hanging on him.
She's gotta get hungry and will start digging in garbage and what ever. They can cover a lot of ground with those little legs in a few minutes so keep looking. I know I do every time I head out to Pinos or Crappy Tire.
All Is Well 10/6/2012 10:33:30 AM Report
Weisen, some food for thought.
About 52,100 people found work last month. The unemployment rate edged up to 7.4%, from 7.3% a month earlier, as more people got back into the labour market.
Many of those new September positions were in the retail and wholesale sectors, while more people also found work in construction and agriculture. However, the manufacturing and natural resources sectors shed jobs.
Overall, full-time employment rose by 44,100 during the month, while part-time growth totaled 8,000. The private sector accounted for most of the new jobs in September.
Across the country, significant job gains were limited to Ontario and Manitoba. Employment among youths between the ages of 15 to 24 continued to decline in September, with the jobless rate climbing to 15% from 14.8% the previous month.
But those between 25 to 54 — mostly men — filled most of the positions created last month.
“While the markets have responded heavily to today’s twin employment releases, the U.S. result likely has more import for the Bank of Canada. The bank focuses on slack in the economy, so the back-up in the jobless rate in Canada will carry more weight than the flashy headline spike in employment.”
1) Unemployment rate rose to 7.4%
2) Many of the jobs were in retail and wholesale(gain in high paying jobs?)
3)Manufacturing and natural resources lost jobs(loss of high paying jobs)(4th month in a row manufacturing has shown losses.)
4)15% of job gains was for part-time.(high paying jobs?)
5) Most of job gains were in Ontario and Manitoba. Ontario 31,000+ and Manitoba 6,600. (52,000 - 38,000=14,000 jobs for rest of Canada)Thank goodness for non-PC governments. :)
6)Jobless rate among 15-24 year olds now more than double the overall unemployment rate.
7) You have a much better chance at a job if you are a male.
8) The unemployment rate has greater impact than the job gains.(You know, those flashy headlines.)
Sorry for the length of the post.

Only a lib/dipper could find fault with the Canadian jobs report. Perhaps if McGuinty in Ontario and Marois in Quebec would get their heads out of their asses, they could be adding to the manufacturing jobs that are sorely lacking in their jurisdictions.

Found Blackies red scarf behind 298 black road .
Blackie is without scarf and will be hard to track.
I believe now that the Moose Lodge sighting was not Blackie.
I believe that Blackie is moving slow and sleeping in a safe place during the day to avoid the heavy traffic.
Blackie's route will down Black road and up 2nd line to Korah road and then home.
Keep an eye out for a black and grey miniature poodle that is fast and hard to catch.
Blackie is avoiding people as she is running on fear.
Her last sighting was Thursday night with no scarf confirmed.
If you see Blackie call 705 257 6384

Harper inherited a sound fiscal situation and was kept in check, by a minority government, before he had a chance to screw it up. And the Cons are taking credit!!
Obama inherited a disastrous fiscal situation and has been kept in jeopardy by a bunch of wealthy people who can starve the rest of the country into submission. And the Cons are blaming Obama.
And it ain't gonna work because Romney is as shallow as piss on a plate and even his most loyal followers know it.

Skipper: I think the future of the US economy rests with neither of the candidates. Like in many countries, it is a sideshow. It'll be a matter of if the poorer get shafted or not.
On another matter, as a self-proclaimed fairly stong agnostic (even Dawkins says total Atheism doesn't make sense),
I have to wonder about the beauty that surrounds us this time of year and the joy of family and the agony of loss, the worry of all kinds of things, the laughter and the tears and basically reading my nine year old grandaughter's 50 page beautifully illustrated and beautifully poetic little book to her great grandfather about the joys of life as he is in his very last days. It's kind of a " My favourite things" from " The Sound of Music" but much longer. She astounds everyone with her perception, expression and her capture of life in pictures and words.
While I would not think to pay allegiance to dogma or any religion, I am led to think of another "Sound of Music" song with the lines "Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could"
and that is why I'm an agnostic and not an atheist.

Right Wing---It is very obvious to me that are a supporter of the P.U.C. and they can do no wrong.
They take money from their customers and give poor service and give the Customers money away and build a new building.
I hope you are ready to pay your share of that new building and their gifts to others.
As for being a Private business---I have my doubts about that because the people of the City are the major shareholders and get nothing but increases in charges and any profits, if they have any, are never returned to the owners.
If you think that they don't make any profits then how can they give away
A private business would return most of their profits to the Shareholders.

Blackie has not been seen in 3 days.His last official sighting was in the 300 block of Black road.
Blackie is normally outgoing and friendly and is looking for other dogs and other humans who are friendly and likely to feed and shelter her.
The nearest place would be Village Court and the P patch only one busy road to cross and that would have been done when the traffic is quiet.
Blackie is in an area from 2nd line to Pine st to Wellington st Bennett t o Boundary road Adeline to Cory
Manitou Park has been searched.Trunk Road from Pine to Boundary to wellington Bennett to Boundary have all been searched
Tomorrow the search will be in the P patch area.Those living in the P patch area look out for Blackie

"On another matter, as a self-proclaimed fairly stong agnostic (even Dawkins says total Atheism doesn't make sense)".
The human condition has been dissected, analyzed, "freudianized" and even a stellar psychoanalyst like Carl Jung came to the conclusion that there must be a God.
I read the Bible and passages of the Quran and I came to the firm conclusion that there is no God. And I am fine with it.
Firstly, there is no evidence of a god. Secondly , there is no need for a god and thirdly it doesn't matter.
There is a "life force" and it's neither benevolent or malevolent.
If one cannot distinguish right from wrong from the very core of it's own being then we are dealing with a garden variety form of dementia. A decent human being does not need the guidance of the Bible or the Quran.
Both books are worth reading in a mythological sense and as poetry, but not as prose or fact.
Scripture is a guide to make sense of the "hero journey" of humanity as Joseph Campbell explained but is not and cannot be interpreted as evidence of a superior creator.
I am and will remain an atheist until further notice.
