Selfie found on iPhone

So funny! I just had to reblog it! I also suggest visiting DC Montreal’s blog! -tk

DCMontreal: Blowing the Whistle on Society

I foolishly left my iPhone unlocked last night and this morning I found this selfie of Ferguson. He swears up and down that it’s for his Canadian Pussport, but I think he’s up to something! I’ve been searching for a FelineMingle dating site but to no avail.

Phew! War Averted!

“Danger!  Railway Crossing” is a familiar sign.  On October 20, 1888, a railway crossing nearly caused civil war in Manitoba. The provincial government had broken the C.P.R. monopoly and arranged to have a railway built from Winnipeg to the American border where it would connect with the Northern Pacific Railway.  It was hoped that the competition would lead to lower freight rates, and the C.P.R. was determined to fight the measure to the last ditch to prevent this.

One track of this new Red River Valley railway was to go to Portage la Prairie, and would have to cross C.P.R. tracks.  As the Red River Valley workers got close to Heardingly, where the crossing was to be made, they saw a derailed locomotive blocking the way.  It had been placed there by order of C.P.R. superintendent William Whyte.  There were also five railway cars nearby carrying about 250 workmen who had been sworn in as special constables.

There was consternation in Winnipeg.  Fifty-three men were sworn in as special constables.   A train carrying the constables and another 200 citizens left the city at 3:30 p.m. and stopped about 1 mile south of St. James’ Bridge, where the two railways were supposed to cross.  The situation was tense.  Chief Clark of the Provincial Police told the C.P.R. men that their appointments as special constables had been cancelled.  Alderman T. Nixon, a justice of the peace, promptly swore them in again.

Meanwhile the Red River Valley track-layers were getting closer to the crossing.  The Winnipeg citizens were determined that the C.P.R. men should not stop them, and a special train was sent to Winnipeg to bring back soldiers.

The expected “war” did not take place because the Red River Valley track-layers were still several hundred yards from the crossing when darkness fell.  Most people went back to Winnipeg for the night, and cooler heads had prevailed by morning.  The matter was referred to the Supreme Court of Canada which ruled that the Legislature of Manitoba had the power to charter railways within the bounds of “old Manitoba.”  The new railway was allowed to go through.

Fort Vieux Logis – Where Is It?

A very interesting piece! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. – tkmorin

Nova Scotia History

After Halifax was populated by Cornwallis in 1749, direction was given to secure Acadian sites in the country.

Several fort names are mentioned in a variety of sources, I have always been interested in where these protective sites  were located prior to and following the Grand Derangement. Of course, in my neck of the woods, the best known defensive site is the blockhouse located at Fort Edward. This site, built in 1750, seems to be the last surviving Blockhouse in Nova Scotia. I recall seeing another Blockhouse in St Andrews, just up the Bay of Fundy, but in New Brunswick (which used to be Nova Scotia…)

It seems that Vieux Logis (Old House in French) was located at an Acadian village alongside the Gaspereau River near Horton Landing. There is some question of whether or not the Fort was located on the other side of the river. The Deportation Cross…

Useless Plasticbox 1.2

This is funny! I am not sure if I would have noticed it myself if I was walking by. After laughing, why not drop by the site and look around. Despite the name “prettyawfulthings”, it’s not always “awful” .. enjoy everyone! – tkmorin

PJ-BEST-BUT-USELESS-BOX-4-768x1024ssss

Los Angeles-based street artist Plastic Jesus covertly installed a fake product on the shelves of five LA area Best Buy stores: a small plastic box, complete with an official-looking product tag that reads “Useless Plastic Box 1.2.”

“Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life too short to be of use.”

Reflections

Flirting Cop Angry Girlfriend

An attractive female flirting cop is well received by the guys she’s flirting with but not so much by their girlfriends who get a little angry. Guys are such suckers for any attractive female giving them the time of day and they can’t control themselves in front of their girlfriends. The girlfriends decide to show the cop who’s the boss as their boyfriends watch in horror. Another funny skit from the crew at Just For Laughs Gags filmed in Québec.
 

Good night.
