Somewhere over…

Skip the train over a yellow brick line now the train skips on you medical emergency delays delays should we look away? wash the matter resting in pieces but there’s no peace here things are dire when we’re too broke to pay attention except to look down Did you see the look of resignation? or was it panic desperation we can’t live this way I can’t tell you not to jump to another conclusion ends by any means some ends are just mean how to find another way click your heels to find there’s no place like home but does it even exist anymore Where can any of us go when life gets like this? we cross a yellow brick road knowing it’s been within us all along a means to escape now shoes glistened red something clicks into place we won’t live this way

Agreed 100 percent

Someone wrote a very classy post on here, saying how there’s nothing worse than watching someone shares their thoughts through the filter of what other people are doing. Not sure what type of experience you had, but you basically described my coworker. No one likes him. He’s very persistent when it comes to personal questions and does nothing, but bombard people with gossip. A lot of my colleagues are fed up with him. He shouldn’t even be working for our company anymore. If I was one of the higher ups, that person would’ve been terminated a long time ago. Boy, it amazes me how some people in the workplace are, without a doubt, unprofessional. Thankfully, he hasn’t contacted me in a while. But if he does, so, I’ll just tell him to get a life and block his number.

Enough is enough

I got tired of dealing with a nosey coworker that kept trying to middle in my business. That person did nothing but bombard me with ridiculous personal questions. This guy was intrusive and persistent. So I told him flat out to stop messaging me and never contact me again. His number has been blocked. Unless you want colleagues to resent you and complain about you behind your back, don’t be a snoop. Otherwise, it makes you look ridiculous. Just focus on your job. You’re not getting paid to pry into other peoples personal lives. Shape up or ship out.

Children

I have two children and I don't think its any man I am dating's business until I am good and ready to tell them. I want them to get to know me first. The last 2 men have just disappeared as soon as I told them. My children are amazing. The men in Vancouver need to grow a pair.

Now And Then

While on the subject of AI, the Beatles released a new single using AI called Now And Then. A lot of people had this misconception that AI was used to fake John Lennon’s vocals. Not true. Instead, Paul McCartney used AI to clean up the sound quality of John Lennon’s voice in order to enhance the tape. Hard to believe that this final song by the fab four was made with AI because it sounds like a beautiful, psychedelic ballad. Of course, don’t expect Yellow Submarine, a hard days night, Hey Jude, or I want to hold your hand. It’s a different Beatles song. I still love and appreciate it. It’s better than a lot of the garbage you hear on the radio nowadays. Plus, it’s fun to play on guitar!

Be the change

If some people are fed up with the lack of leadership from their Union Local at work, then perhaps they should volunteer to join the Union themselves. Don’t like what you see? Instead of complaining about it, do something about it. Take action! Action speaks louder than words. Otherwise, complacency and apathy get you nowhere. I myself am contemplating on becoming a shop steward and working my way up so that I could make some positive changes in my Union Local. If I could have that mindset, then there’s no reason why you can’t.

Brian Wilson

When I heard that Brian Wilson’s wife, Melinda, passed away, it reminded me when I saw him perform at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. This was almost 8 years ago. During that time, Brian not only performed his Beach Boys songs that everyone recognizes. He played a lot of other stuff from the unreleased Smile album. He sat at the keyboard the whole time, and drank beers in between the songs. Didn’t even play the keyboard or any other instrument once. You could tell the effects of all the drugs he took and his deteriorating mental health had caught up with him, but he did the best he could. He’d been lucky to have his wife by his side during his times of trouble. Now that she’s gone, not sure if the same will apply. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Eavesdropping

Have you ever been an 3rd party to a conversation and just wished you could jump in and say something? I was dining alone recently when I overheard two people at the table right beside me talking. One of them was constantly telling the other one what to do and making judgmental remarks about almost everything the other person said. I could tell that the other person was getting annoyed but mostly they were just silently absorbing this from their friend. It made me angry hearing it and I wished I could just say something to the judgy one about being a know it all, but I didn’t of course. But it was so irritating that even when I tried to block it out I couldn’t. Newsflash people, just because you’re lucky enough to enjoy great health doesn’t make you a superior person, and berating your friend because they’re not as lucky as you makes you a jerk.

I think...

... that there has not been a confession about eating delicious chicken for some time. It's wonderful to live in a society where any hour of the day you can go out of your house and find chicken readily prepared for you in restaurants. It speaks to the greatness of this place that there is a continual supply of edible chicken. It is uninterrupted. May the chicken flow.

The tables have turned

There was a confession about a man mistreating a dog, and today I saw a dog mistreating a man. I called the SPCA on it.
