            There is a legend that says that if you follow the North Star you will find the treasure you are looking for. However, you have very good humans taking real good care of you. So, I’ll ask you to leave it to me, and I’ll try to meet him myself and transcribe my conversations!! =^.^=

    HHmm. Only one female in the lot. “progessive-conservative” now that’s an oxymoron. 🙂

    That is quite the list of our PMs, isn’t it? What happened to MacKenzie King during 1926, do you know by any chance? It looks like Arthur Meighen came in while King had a break! 🙂 Cher xo

      Scandals, of course! Meighen accused King, called an election … King was innocent, though. I wrote an article about it a while back. I’m in the midst of redoing work, but for now you can read it at
