A Lesson Learned

A Lesson Learned
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.

When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.

When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'

'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies.

'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'

PHOTO ENFORCEMENT CONTINUES
IN DORMANT CITY PLAYGROUNDS


Winter has arrived. Frigid temperatures are here, and the children are nowhere to be seen on the abandoned snow-covered soccer field along Forest Drive. In St. Albert this only means one thing. Since no one is around there is a lot more room to park the photo enforcement trucks to enforce this abandoned playground zone with inadequate signs.

The two Ford trucks are out in full force this winter enforcing this dormant playground:
Photo Radar GreyFord1500X1100

  • Dark grey Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5662
Photo Radar White Ford1500
  • White Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5661

Their black GMC SUV and white Jeep are keeping busy in other locations in St. Albert.

Municipal Enforcement shamelessly continues to enforce these abandoned playground zones even though there is no shortage of legitimate locations in which to conduct photo enforcement. Contrary to certain opinion, Photo Enforcement is still an effective tool to curb speeding if used appropriately and fairly. Enforcing playgrounds in the winter is a clear example of inappropriate and unfair.

Jardine Security has been contracted to respond to sightings of Photo Radar vehicles in vacant playground zones this winter. Call Jardine for immediate response to monitor photo enforcement activity. Call
while the photo enforcement vehicles are still there.

'Invisible' Train Set To Roll In 2018

'Invisible' Train Set To Roll In 2018
(CNN) - It’s a train out of a "Hunger Games" world.

Except it could actually happen.

A nearly invisible train designed by one of Japan's leading architects is scheduled to debut in Tokyo in 2018.

Designed by award winner Kazuyo Sejima, the commuter train uses semi-reflective and semi-transparent materials to blend into the scenery whether it's traveling through the city or the countryside, according to a Newsweek report.

More on CNN.

The Hospital Bill

The Hospital Bill
A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping in a store. The store clerks called an ambulance when they saw him collapse to the floor.

The paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital where he had emergency open heart bypass surgery.

He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital.

A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clipboard loaded with several forms, and a pen. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment. "Do you have health insurance?" she asked.

He replied in a raspy voice, "No health insurance."

The nun asked, "Do you have money in the bank?"

He replied, "No money in the bank."

Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?" asked the irritated nun.

He said, "I only have a spinster sister and she is a nun.”

The nun became agitated and announced loudly, "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God."

The man replied, "Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law."

Movies Get Immersive: Indoor Drive-In Coming To Nashville

Movies Get Immersive
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Movie-goers in Nashville are in for a unique experience as plans have been unveiled for an indoor drive-in with a 1960s feel.

The “August Moon Drive-In” is slated to open at the intersection of James Robertson Parkway and Interstate 24 in 2018. It's slated to be built in Main Event Parking, which is a lot with 1,000 spaces.

The drive-in won't reduce the number of parking spots, but rather re-arrange them.

But this is not your typical drive-in.

Complete story on Fox 17.

80 Salisbury Presentation
To St. Albert City Council


80 Salisbury
Mayor And Council:

It has been a while, but I feel compelled to present today in support of the previous speaker, Mr. Craig Skarupa, in addressing a wrong that has been inflicted upon not only him and his family, but also an uncertain number of St. Albert citizens living in proximity to 80 Salisbury Avenue.

The inherent ramifications are not only financial (ie. property values) but more importantly include physical harm, possibly being of life and death proportions. The pertinent details have been made known to all of you on council and in the administration, but to a very limited extent with the public, due in no small measure to actions and inactions, whether by design or default, on your part and those who came before you.

While no person can rightly lay blame individually or collectively on any of you for creating this fiasco, it is by virtue of your election to public office that you have inherited the problem, and are legally and morally bound to provide adequate redress in an effective and timely manner.

The neglectful sweeping under the rug and stonewalling of the past must come to an abrupt end. So too, does the increasingly frequent practice of secreting yourselves behind the curtains of in-camera sessions, despite what your in-house legal advisors might otherwise be telling you.

Being seasoned politicians, I need not remind you that 2017 is a municipal election year. Unless you do not plan to run for re-election or perhaps have even loftier political goals, in the coming months whatever you say, or do not say, do, or do not do, will be remembered and reflected at the ballot box.

Of late, there have been editorials and commentaries in the local press admonishing certain individuals on council for persistently wasting precious time on matters that are deemed to be petty. I will not at this time, argue such reasoning or lack of the same, other than to say that others among you seem to think nothing of devoting significant financial and human resources to matters such as a bee-keeping bylaw as evidenced by item 13.3 under council motions in today’s agenda.

I believe most reasonable beings would agree that the 80 Salisbury Avenue matter should at the very least, be regarded as being of equal importance.

As an individual citizen and elector, I am neither suggesting nor requesting, but rather demanding that you render the decisions necessary for ensuring that appropriate actions are immediately undertaken to finally bring an end to this travesty!

Murray Lambert
St. Albert


SINC SAYS:
The forgoing presentation was made to city council February 6, 2017 in support of the Skarupa family and their campaign to reach some conclusion to the issue of possible contamination from a commercial business that operated at 80 Salisbury Avenue. You can watch the presentation on the video of that meeting on the city website. I watched the presentation live and you will note that Mr. Lambert pauses to make mention that, ‘he did not have the attention of all members of council,’ during his presentation. That comment was directed at the mayor, Lambert told SAP later, who apparently was absorbed with other tasks and not seemingly interested in the matter at hand. Odd indeed, given it concerns a property nearby the mayor’s own property on the same avenue. Mr. Skarupa’s presentation, mentioned in Lambert’s presentation above, can also be viewed on the city website near the beginning of that city council meeting or you can read the entire text of it here.

Below are two pictures of the building the city allowed to be built at 80 Salisbury Avenue. Does this look even remotely like a residential garage folks? Who at the time, was responsible for this monstrosity and failed to ask why such a huge garage was being contemplated? Why won't city council do the right thing and take immediate steps to clear up this matter once and for all?

Nothing Says 'I Love You' Like Flowers Made Of Dried-Out Beef

Nothing Says
The lovely roses in the picture are made with beef jerky, the brainchild of a company called Say It With Beef.

But what is it you're hoping to say, and to whom? I think that depends on the situation. This "broquet" as its creators are calling it, can say many things. It can say to your Valentine, "Flowers die quickly but beef jerky lasts for a really, really long time." It can say, "You're a dude and I had no idea what to buy you. Have some beef." Or perhaps they're just a way to congratulate a guy on a new job, bachelor pad or car.

More on the mother nature network.

Chinese Factory Replaces 90% Of Human Workers With Robots

Chinese Factory Replaces
After a factory in Dongguan, China, replaced most of its workers with robots, it witnessed a spectacular rise in productivity.

While some of the world’s leaders are obsessed with keeping people out of their country, an unspoken entity is slowly but certainly taking our jobs: robots. It’s been long discussed that robots and computers will start taking our jobs “in the near future” — well that near future is upon us and we’re not really prepared to deal with it. Of course, some jobs are more at risk than others, are few are as threatened as factory jobs.

According to Monetary Watch, the Changying Precision Technology Company focuses on the production of mobile phones and uses automated production lines. The factory used to be run by 650 employees, but now just 60 people get the entire job done, while robots take care of the rest. Luo Weiqiang, the general manager, says the number of required employees will drop to 20 at one point. Despite this reduction in staff, not only is the factory producing more equipment (a 250% increase), but it’s also ensuring better quality.

Eric Martin
- is an Edmonton guitarist / bassist / singer who has been around the block a few times. He has played in local bands since the early 70’s, including Andromeda, Falconchase, Patch, Classified, to name just a few. Eric has also been doing a solo act for the past 30 years. Also, several stints as a Jam host, through which he has met and befriended many of the fine music makers in Edmonton.

Currently, Eric occasionally does the solo show, plays with “M*A*R*S” (the Middle Aged Rock Stars), performs with “The Mad Dogs Review”, “Keep It Greasy” and “Harder”, and spends much time writing and recording.  Eric is admittedly, and proudly – ‘guitarded’.  It’s nice to be back in LB’s!

The ‘Untranslatable’ Emotions You Never Knew You Had

The ‘Untranslatable’ Emotions
Have you ever felt a little mbuki-mvuki – the irresistible urge to “shuck off your clothes as you dance”? Perhaps a little kilig – the jittery fluttering feeling as you talk to someone you fancy? How about uitwaaien – which encapsulates the revitalising effects of taking a walk in the wind?

These words – taken from Bantu, Tagalog, and Dutch – have no direct English equivalent, but they represent very precise emotional experiences that are neglected in our language. And if Tim Lomas at the University of East London has his way, they might soon become much more familiar.

The Quest To Return Tomatoes To Their Full-Flavoured Glory

The Quest To Return
For most city dwellers, the luscious taste of a vine-ripened garden tomato bursting in the mouth is little more than a distant memory. Sadly for supermarket shoppers, the standard grocery varieties have grown bigger, blander and hardier for cross-country shipping and storage. Now scientists have charted the genetic path that made today’s tomatoes nearly unrecognizable from their more flavorful predecessors.

By uncovering the tomato's genetic journey, researchers have identified key flavor-enhancing genes that have dwindled or disappeared as the tomato changed over the years. Armed with this new knowledge, they believe they can return that taste to today’s supermarket tomatoes—with a little genetic fiddling.
