Hi Trex. How's your summer going so far? Did you see the super moon last night?

I know you were following the Jodi Arais case. Did you see the movie last night? I watched most of it and it made her look like a stalking lunatic. Maybe she was, I didn't follow the case that closely but I just don't see how people like her just get so obsessed over another person. It's crazy!!!!!!!!!!

In reality, it's Redford who's afraid because of all the impending lawsuits which will be filed once the dust settles. The provincial Conservatives were aware of the flood risk, but chose to do absolutely nothing......$300-million is but loose pocket change to this government. She's a lawyer and a previous Justice Minister, she should know a thing or two about established legal precident.

"Alberta didn’t take that lesson to heart as much as it should have after the last flood in 2005, said former Tory agriculture minister George Groeneveld, who chaired a task force that called for a $300-million investment in flood mitigation.

The report he completed in 2006 gathered dust for six years before PC Premier Alison Redford released it last year after taking office."

Alberta flood zone development was a mistake, former MLA says
2006 flood report called for the end of land sales in known flood risk areas

A former Alberta MLA who headed up a flood mitigation task force after the 2005 floods says new development should not have been allowed to spring up in the flood zones.

"The one thing they could have done … they should have stopped building some housing and buildings on the flood plains. And that was a strong part of that report," George Groeneveld, who chaired the flood mitigation committee and report, told CBC News.

"If you’re going to build in those areas, you take on the responsibility yourself. That to me was the strength of the report, stop building where we shouldn't be building."

Property owners have the right to expect land which is allowed to be developed is presumed to be safe. In the government's burning desire to grow this province as quickly as possible and entice opportunity to a booming economy from maximizing production of the Oil Sands, they have knowingly allow uncontrolled development to occur. It's a proverbial mindset - today is significant, forget about the future......

While the province and municipalities cannot balance their budgets and are incurring debt, big business - land developers, builders, realtors, mortgage brokers and oils companies (mostly foreign owned) are primarily capitalizing in this pursuit of PROSPERITY that we are all told we must strive to to achieve.

Alberta’s Redford takes pipeline pitch to Manhattan Add to ...

Alberta Premier Alison Redford delivered an ardent pitch for expanded development of her province’s oil sands, calling it critical to the long-term growth and security of the United States and Canada.

Ms. Redford made her appeal in America’s financial capital, part of a continuing campaign by federal and provincial officials to keep the pressure on American policy makers as they approach a final decision on whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

Such pipelines are crucial, Ms. Redford said, if “we’re serious about moving large enough volumes of oil to achieve true independence and responsible prosperity together.”

<snip>

At every opportunity, Ms. Redford underscored the economic benefits that would accrue to the United States from greater exports from Canada’s oil sands, including a growth in high-paying manufacturing jobs.

At one point, a questioner told Ms. Redford that a relative worked as a pipefitter in Alberta’s energy industry.“He probably makes more money than most U.S. politicians,” Ms. Redford remarked.

Today is 12 degree (appx 50 Fahrenheit) and drizzling rain.......the entire month of June has been much like this and I can count on one hand the days this month which have reached 20 (or 70) outside - only room temperature.

I am much nicer when the weather is. Everyone is.

We're waiting on Premier Redford to organize a ritual sacrifice to the ancient Sun God so the weather improves and the flooding goes away.

Sources confirm to WWN that Casey Anthony is pregnant.

Casey Anthony is pregnant with another child and is reportedly thrilled at the chance to prove she is a good mother even after she was acquitted of killing her first daughter Caylee.

The National Enquirer broke the story based on the claims of multiple unidentified sources saying that the infamous mother is pregnant.

“She just said that she fell in love with a very wealthy man while she’s been in hiding. Casey said he’s taking care of her financially and he’s so obsessed with her that he’ll do anything for her,” an unnamed insider told the tabloid.

That source also told WWN that “her sugar daddy is someone in the publie eye. He’s a high profile man, that everyone in America would know.”

Prior to Casey Anthony dating the wealthy man, she was dating this man:

Let me tell you I thought he was nuts and it was the most whacked invention ever. Who knew a couple years later every house in America would own one.
Shortly after that he bought us car phones that came in a bag. I was like WTH..........I don't want to answer the damn phone when I'm at home, and now people can follow me around calling me. That sucker stayed in the bag uncharged for a couple of years.
Don't even get me started on cell phones. Let's just say that if there was a usage plan for 5 minutes a month call time it would be perfect for me. <quoted text>
Haha. I remember when my husband came home with a VCR. It was terribly expensive & I was mad at him for making such a big purpose without consulting me.

Funny you write that about phones -- I'm not a phone talker either. Never have been, except when I was a teenager. The phone was glued to my ear then.

Or should I say I was glued to Alexander Graham Bell while he worked out the kinks? You know how ancient we are. In fact, Al & I used to date.

If so, there we disagree. The word "punishment" is derived from man made hierarchy involving power and control.

Do you understand the definition of "hospice"?

Hospice patients are awaiting the "final curtain call", so to speak.....the opposite to emergency response treatment.

You're both wrong. Hospice patients are typically not "hooked up to equipment", nor do they have a physician at their bedside 24/7, but they are also not "awaiting the final curtain call". They're living the end of their lives with their symptoms controlled and in many cases feeling better than they have in a long time. However, they do not typically call 911, although some families ignore the patient's wishes at the last second. What the EMT probably REALLY thought was that MJ was a terminally ill patient (not necessarily the same thing as a hospice patient) due to his emaciated appearance. And again..........who cares how a child molester died? I hope it was painful.
