Installing a new toilet

You heard me talk about my search for a new toilet after ours exploded on return from holiday.

After a gruelling graze across the latrine landscape I finally found the perfect throne.

So there I am this week, finally, with enough gumption to remove the old and install the new.

An intimidating task to say the least.

Although, it would be a great asset to DIY’s if when products say ‘everything is included’ it really meant ‘everything is included’.

Say like the hose that connects it to the plumbing or the rubber ring that prevents raw sewage from filling your slippers.

But the real hero of the night was my 8 year old son Kurt who, when asked in a fit of panic to put his smaller arm down the poop hole to retrieve a bolt that had fallen in, and did!

Right up to his shoulder!

Wow! I through it would have taken a lot more convincing!

That’s my boy!

I’m Scott Thompson.

Live murder...

What a horrific story coming out of Roanoke Virginia yesterday where a TV reporter and her cameraman were gunned down doing a routine live report.

What is the world coming to when someone shoots another in cold blood, takes a life and then posts the video of the execution on line?

Not only was this tragedy caught on live TV but the shooter himself was wearing a camera that also recorded the entire event.

Then while being pursued by police, he shares it with others via social media for the world to witness.

It seems the shooter (who was once a reporter himself at the same TV station) had a troubled life and issues getting along with people.

He was eventually fired.  His social media sites reveal trouble had been brewing for a while.

Clearly he intended to do what he did, that being, take some lives and then his own.

Some will say, it’s unfortunate he didn’t get help.

Others will say, it’s unfortunate he got the series of events out of order, and didn’t start with himself.

Either way it’s a tragedy…

The leader isn't the problem, it's the party

NDP leader Thomas Mulcair was on the show yesterday. (You can hear the interview in our audio vault. Aug. 25, 12 noon)

As leader of the opposition he does a great job of holding government accountable.

As a leader I believe he is more effective than Justin Trudeau.

At one time the question of “can the NDP win federally?” would have brought laughter.

After a convincing provincial win in Alberta and the current popularity in Quebec federally, it’s no longer a laughing matter.

Where voters have trouble, is the party. 

For me it was when they announced they would spend millions to re-instate door to door mail delivery but for only those who have recently lost it, not the other 2 thirds majority.

How do young voters view this who don’t even use the mail not to mention the cost to prop up an outdated business model, more importantly, it’s not fair for everyone?

The leader is strong, it’s the party most fear.

It’s not Thomas Mulcair the strategists have to work on, it’s the rest of the party and its policy.
