Grump 11/30/2012 6:54:06 AM Report

Good morning everyone. rw not being the expert on everything that you are I can only pass on the information that I was given. It was from what I believe is a reliable source and I said apparently because I personally can't verify them. Now I'll try again, I was told that these Utilities caused seven weeks delay on the project. That was not bedrock, the Contactor, the Engineer,the City or all the Sidewalk Supers combined it was the Utilities. Also from our combined personal experience it isn't very hard to imagine. Trevone I don't know about the rest of you but petting something furry sure makes
me feel a whole lot better.lol

Give it a rest on the "expert" crap, regurgitation from others does not suit you well on this one.
This was a simple issue, a time frame was allowed May 7th to early November.
That was before the shovel was in the ground.
Queen will be open to traffic today.
How many weeks behind does that put the road being open to traffic, approx. three or seven?
I was also told from a source that they had to jack hammer through many layers of red sandstone bedroom.
Bottom line is there were delays, as we both know happens, and no matter what they were caused by the delay was not that far outside the given time frame for this type of construction.

Anyone read the article titled:
Why doesn't this girl want to go to school?
Very interesting topic. Much more interesting and pertinent than a duck or US politics.

Why doesn't this girl want to go to school?


Seek good legal council ... believe me....they will all listen ...!!

Be careful not to judge too quickly.
TFinn 11/30/2012 10:17:17 AM Report

fly

These are 9 yr olds ....absolutely not judging anyone .. however, it is better to err on the side of caution though ..!! The parents have concerns and no one seems to be doing too much about it ....so seek help outside the school system, they are obviously trying to not cause waves ..!!

When it comes to sexual assault, bullying etc. at this age, I for one would not take lame excuses for answers .. and would trust what my child is saying. If you are not getting answers and you are concerned seek legal help and I’m sure the proper people will give this matter their full attention …and expeditiously I may add.

Re: Why Doesn't this child want to go to school.

Yeah, I'm back because this is so OUTRAGEOUS that I can't believe this board isn't full of comment.

That boy is out of control. He should be suspended indefinitely until he's had a thourough mental examination and councilling.
Sure, at 9 it's stupid to place the 'blame' on this kid, BUT, ALL the adults surrounding him (except the victim's parents) at this point are contributing to his problem. If left unchecked, he'll be raping and murdering.
There is no excuse for this little girl and the others (? why are the girls afraid to speak up, 'principal'?) to suffer a minute more.
Every school's website should be emailed about this, telling them that this community will not put up with harrassment or bullying in our schools. It's time to grow up, people.

I am currently waiting for an operation to repair an aneurism on my aorta but have been bumped 3 times and once while I was in Sudbury. Reason numerous emergency patients with heart blockages that reneder their condition a life a death situation. He stated there have been an increased rate of these emergency operations due to lifestyle choices. My condition was not caused by lifestyle choices. I have been called to Sudbury once again, hoefully not to be turned bacjk again.

Here's a pic of a yellow-headed blackbird, like the one that dropped by a few months back. Looks like, according to the map, it was slightly out of it's range.

Woohoo bounder! Spellchecker, I don't know that I've got it down pat. Only time will tell.
Pink Peony 11/30/2012 11:58:59 AM Report

The response by ADSB regarding that little girl doesn't surprise me. I could tell you a couple of stories of how they protected bullies and consequently allowed the other children to suffer. Being given the excuse "if you knew what they went home to..." was lame. My response was if it's that bad, then why aren't you calling the CAS or teaching that child what he is doing is not acceptable. This hands off approach by the "powers that be" is disgusting and contributes to some of the problems with society.
Grace Under Pressure 11/30/2012 12:12:52 PM Report

Sorry.

mallet 11/30/2012 12:14:22 PM Report

Everson...

I hope you are successful this time, and the operation goes well. However do not blame everyone whos lifestyle you disagree with for the delays. There are only so many operating rooms at the Sudbury Regional Hospital and due to overcrowding they had to delay a lot of surgeries. Some of us overweight people, and I am one, do not have the control we would like, not because we wish to be that way, but because other conditions apply, such as drug inter-actions and food allegies etc... As for being active most older folk do what they can, but not all have the means nor the ability to go to the Y or other gyms. And as for food stuffs not everyone has the means to go to the grocery store every day to get fresh foods, or buy sufficient for a week without spoilage/cost. You may want to remember the old adage regarding walking a mile in the other person shoes before critizing other peoples lifestyles... But I wish you well anyways....
Resident 11/30/2012 1:43:36 PM Report

Pink: Thanks for the link to the picture. I agree with you about the little girl. There were lots of responses below the article. Did you read them?

Good luck Everson.

bounder 11/30/2012 2:33:30 PM Report

I've been told that if you change your
mind,you change the world-or at least the way you experience it.Let's take a moment to examine that.The presumption is,if you thought that the world was a hostile,ugly place filled with awful things,that is what you would see.
Your mind would naturally seek out confirmation for its preconcieved ideas(e.g.,if you intent on buying a red car,as you go about your day you'll see lots of red cars.)If however, you were able to sincerely change your mind and see we are all God in drag,that we are the conscious aspects of a perfect universe which had to create us so we could bear witness and stand in awe before its loving magnificence, then that is the soul-shaking reality that you would be greeted with each and every moment of each and everyday.
In other words,it's entirely our choice
as to what kind of world we live in.
With a simple decision,we can suffer in the darkness or play in the light.We can be angry,frightened and enslaved,or loving, joyous and free.

Tough call.I know.
Just Curious 11/30/2012 3:08:51 PM Report

everson, I went there a few years ago fully expecting a two week delay for heart surgery. The second day I was there I was just putting my cup to my mouth when the nurse yelled not to drink it. I thought that the coffee was bad(it was) but somebody died waiting for surgery and I got bumped up..LOL. Shit happens,some days it lands on you,some days it lands on the other guy. Be glad you are on the windshield never mind the wiper...

Rush did battle an addiction to pain killers as have thousands of others.
He was never addicted to cocaine.
Obesity? You obviously have not seen any pictures of him, he brought his weight down some time ago.
Depression? Yep I'd be real depressed with his success in life.

...and the point to your post was?
Wisenheimer 11/30/2012 5:57:01 PM Report

Hey Jer .. Rush was addicted to pain killers due to back pain and a botched operation. He beat the addiction after 30 days and embarrassed the chortling pundits who opined he was done.

The lighter side.
Don't fall for a woman who has had sex with one of your rock n'roll heroes.
No matter how emotionally envoled you think you are,you will never enjoy listen to Eric Clapton again.
Don't lurk around web/sites where people comment about your work unless your drunk.
Don't use emoticons.You're to old to communicate like a twelve year old boy.
Don't forget, your the product of a culture that went stark raving mad about ten thousand years ago.
Adjust your thiking accordingly.
Don't eat anything bigger than your head,true in the sixties and true today.
Don't believe that you're as young as you feel.
Your feelings lie.
Don't hug men while shaking their hands.
Enough of that already.
The shake/hug (shug)is probaly something the Romans did when their empire was in decline.
Good night.
JerryLundegard 11/30/2012 6:18:00 PM Report

Did he tell you he wasn't addicted to cocaine? What did he use to counter-act the sleepiness, and his being lathargic? Cocaine I'll guess. I also picked Obabma, and the Argos, so I take comfort knowing you're wrong about this! All your info on the US election came from same sources you heard about Limbaugh, so ill leave it at that!

30 days? Haha...was that in his auto-biography?
I just googled his recent pics...Once a fat gluttonous slob, always a fat gluttonous slob!
I still see the same pig.

R W..

I have always found the "trickcyclists" Freud and Nietzsche to be so far over my head and heading to the outer reaches to be not worth reading too much. Psychology turns very quickly into psychobable so as to fool as many people as possible in as short a time possible. Psycologists have this very annoying way of telling you to change your ways without telling you how... Status will understand this ... when someone comes along with a auto problem ... he tells them "well you should change the way you drive" ...sorry stats.. but does not tell them how...
