St. Albert Protected Left Turns Fail After All
IMG_0285 copy
Yesterday morning the mayor was busy on his blog, bragging about how safe the protected left hand turn traffic signals were on the St. Albert Trail. Meanwhile over on the Trail at St. Anne street about the same time, city fire crews were busy cleaning up after a left hand turn collision. Oh the irony. Trail traffic jams are commonplace since the implementation of protected left hand turns. Residents can now get to Costco on 149th Street in Edmonton quicker than they can access the local Costco. City traffic is a nightmare, inconveniencing the vast majority of motorists to protect the stupid, but yesterday, the stupid prevailed.

Confessions Of A Seenager

Confessions Of A Seenager
I am now a Seen-ager. (That’s a Senior teenager for this of you who don’t know.)

I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later:

I don’t have to go to school, or work.
I get an allowance (old age pension).
I have my own pad.
I don’t have a curfew.
I have a driver’s license, and my own car.
I have ID that gets me into bars and the Beer Store.
The people I hang around with are not scared of getting drafted, or pregnant.
And I don’t have acne.

Life is great.

Old Farmer's Almanac Predicts Widespread Snow

Old Farmer's Almanac
It may be baking hot across much of the United States, but be warned, The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts winter will bring a slew of snow for much of the country.

The dire prediction in the annual book suggests, that even in places that don't usually see too much snow, like the Pacific Northwest, there could be a cold snap starting in December.

According to the almanac, people should look for above-normal snow and below-normal temperatures for much of New England; icy conditions in parts of the South; and frigid weather in the Midwest.
