I lifted this from my friend Kareena's blog (and she lifted it from someone else's). I truly believe that Christmas has become synonymous with commercialism, and if we just gave a little bit to those in need, maybe things might be better for everyone. As we give thanks this year for all the blessings in our lives, lets take time to remember those less fortunate than we are.

Part of the housewares section of Salisbury. They have thousands upon thousands of knick knacks and decorations.

Muffin, on the other hand, lost her mind when Amica came to stay with us. I think Muffin feels that every dog that she can get to is obliged to play with her. Amica does not feel this obligation. Long story short, if Muffin doesn't smarten up, she's going to get her head bitten off. The only time the girls seem to get along is when Muffin can stop bothering Amica long enough to have a nap. More to come, I'm sure.

- Find out how much a 50 lb bag of rice and 75 lb of frozen peas would cost
- 2. Post a video of Homer Simpson falling off his roof to this blog.
APPARENTLY, grocery stores don't post their prices on line unless it is a flier item. Which is fine if bulk bags of peas and rice are on sale, but they aren't.
Also, I was going to write a truly funny blog about the possibility of falling of the roof while installing Christmas lights, highlighted by a funny Simpson's clip. That isn't going to happen because almost all video sites (with the exception of YouTube) ONLY STREAM TO THE USA!
I'm getting really tired of all the withholding of free media from the states - even from sites like ABC and NBC. What's the deal?
Anyway, suffice it to say that our Christmas lights are installed (not well), there is a giant inflatable penguin on our front lawn, and no video today for you to laugh at.

Last night we went with Mom and Dad to Bright nights. It cost $20 per vehicle with proceeds going to the Food Bank. While I cant argue with the cause it's going to, I was somewhat disappointed by the amount they charge and what you get. I wager that we were in and out in all of 7 minutes, and quite a few of the lights displays were either burned out or not working. I think that if you had children it would be good to go to, and maybe I'm just a Grinch or something, but I don't think I'd go again any time soon. On the up side, there was a really cool display of the RCMP musical ride and a Canada flag, and that was my favorite one.
