None so blind as those that will not see.

Hard to believe that women have only been “people” in Canada for only 91 years.

On October 18, 1929, the Lord Chancellor of Great Britain, Lord Sankey, announced that the court’s decision was that the word ‘person’ would include women:[11]

“The exclusion of women from all public offices is a relic of days more barbarous than ours. And to those who would ask why the word “person” should include females, the obvious answer is, why should it not?”

The issue of world environment has a special kind of urgency…
The issue is one of rich peoples and poor peoples,
of the growing gap between the two,
and of the rich fouling their own nests.
~ Gilbert White (English – Naturalist /  July 18, 1720 – June 26, 1793)


World Listening Day

Nelson Mandela International Day


My favorite lunch time view, sitting in a kayak and watching turtles pop up for air around me, listening to frogs croak, maybe even catch young muskrat playing along the water’s edge.  Wondering what’s on the other side of the bridge, where I have never gone.

The Old Ausable Channel has some of the purest spring fed water in the world.
