Since our latest election, Trudeau, elected on a series of major promises and a hatred of the Conservatives, has been nothing but a major disappointment.  He has proven himself to be nothing more than a typical lying politician.  Checking on the TrudeauMeter, it’s easy to see that most of the promises he has kept have […]

Below is a collection of photographs we took of some of […]

It’s February 6th and we’ve finally arrived in Mountain View.  The trip was largely uneventful, having driven through South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. We drove I-20 from end to end, 1,539 miles.  We were surprised at the vast expanses of nothingness, as well as a greenness of the […]

We went to Savannah earlier this week to walk around the historic area of town we enjoyed so much a couple of years ago.  The drive from Hilton Head to Savannah is very pleasant, along roads overhung with Spanish moss and along the many salt marshes.  We walked along the waterfront and down the streets […]

We had a lovely, sunny day today, with temperatures up to 9°C.  We drove to the outlet malls, just to see if there was anything interesting.  Travelling with the Miata, there is precious little space for purchases.  As we thought, we found nothing worth looking at, particularly with the USD at CAD1.50. We took a […]
