Topic: Canada Adopts Maple Leaf Flag (1965)
Posted: Thursday, February 15, 2018 8:11:32 AM
As I recall, the Liberal government under Lester B. Pearson, as Prime Minister, had the majority. The Liberal Party's colours are red. The Progressive Conservative party at the time, had blue as their party colour. (The opposite of the US parties' colours.) So, naturally, they dropped the colour blue from the national flag. I like the flag but I don't like the politics that seemed to be behind the choice at the time. I heard one person call it, "Pearson's underwear." (Not me, just FYI)

In Ketosis, one burns fat for fuel and insulin is not required. Many people have beat type II DB by switching. I eat mostly fat and I have lost about 40 lbs since I switched over. I don't care if you believe me or not but I smile whenever I walk past a mirror now.

Commonly heard during WWII: "Loose lips sink ships!"

I've noticed that the Wiki link doesn't work sometimes because of the order use in the name of the person. Example: Surname, first name and then middle name is not how Wiki lists them. They use First name, middle name, Surname - in that order. Just a note to linkers, to be aware of that situation.
Topic: Quoi ma gueule?
Posted: Sunday, January 28, 2018 3:16:02 PM
When we were kids, we played a game called "Tappe dans las geule" (not sure of spelling - that's why I'm here.) My sister would grab my wrist and told me to leave it loose. She would then wave my hand (resting elbow on table) back and forth saying, "Molley, molley, molley, molley...tappe dans la geule." (Working on old memories here.) Having been fooled once, I didn't play that game much - except to pull the same prank on someone else.

The Dave Clark Five, as I recall, had a song called "Bits and Pieces".

Why does it just say women? Aren't there mannequins of males too, and aren't there male models? Seems a bit stereotypical to me.

It seems ironic to me that he died of perytonitis, aka, "germs."

As a person who has owned 2 volkswagen beetles in my time, I can honestly say that I believe them to be two of the most dependable vehicles that I have ever owned. Put snow tires on them and you never get stuck in snow. "old clunker?" Maybe so, but I like them, still.
