COUGAR ATTACK

Around 7 pm tonight, I heard the ambulance go by, then a few minutes later I got a phone call to tell me that a friend had been attacked by a cougar.....he parked in his driveway, opened the car door, put one leg out and a cougar jumped out of the bushes and attacked him......he beat it over the head with his cane and got the door closed again and phoned the mounties........My first reaction was horror of course, but then I laughed till the tears rolled.......You would have to know the guy......just the picture in my head of him bopping a cougar over the head with his cane......He got away with a few scratches.....lucky guy.

I had been walking in the woods just a couple of hours earlier, a 1/4 mile from the attack.....Yeatch!!!!.....Wildlife Services will be on the island hunting it first thing tomorrow........There is something wrong with a cougar who attacks a Human......Last time a cougar came even close, was 30 years ago.A man heard his dog making strange crying sounds outside. He grabbed a flashlight and opened the door to see a cougar with his dog's head in it's mouth......the cougar immediately let go and took off.

The Wildlife guys were very familiar with it.....they had been tracking him for years. Some people had put out illegal bear traps in their orchards to catch raccoons. The young cougar got caught in one and damaged his leg so he couldn't hunt. Another, older cougar hunted with him for 6 months. Cougars are loners and never hunt together, so this was a very rare partnership. When the injured cougar's foot healed, he was on his own again, but his foot didn't heal properly.

The Wildlife guys could tell by his tracks....the foot was deformed. So, apparently he lost the ability to feed himself and so it was extreme hunger that forced him to hunt easy prey.......it was his undoing however and he was culled.

DEMENTIA VILLAGE

This is being built about 30 miles from here in a beautiful river valley......what a great idea.......

"The construction of a new care home and creation of campus of care will allow the local health-care system to provide care that is flexible and responsive for those living with dementia and complex health issues,”

The dementia village is being modelled after successful facilities in the Netherlands. It represents a shift in care that supports a “person-centric” model.

"Creating a community that is a hub of a activity that focuses putting the needs of the person at the forefront won’t only benefit the senior, but also their family,"

Plans include providing facilities that both seniors and their families can enjoy, including a grocery store, music room, and pub in the village.

The announcement supports a large-scale provincial plan, which aims to better support B.C’s ageing population, and reduce added stress on emergency services and hospitals.

“This is the right conversation to be having,” Stewart says. “When it comes to dementia, age is the biggest risk factor, so we really need to be prepared to provide good quality, inclusive care.”

HILLARY WARREN ELIZABETH CLINTON

I DON’T HATE WOMEN CANDIDATES — I JUST HATED HILLARY AND COINCIDENTALLY I’M STARTING TO HATE ELIZABETH WARREN
by DEVORAH BLACHOR

- - -
I have no problem with women. My wife is a woman and I have daughters who will likely be wives and mothers of daughters one day. I only had a problem with Hillary Clinton, and my problem with her is completely separated from her gender, and is solely based on the fact that she was so dishonest when compared to other prominent politicians who ran for president. How could anyone vote for such a liar?


A ten-book bundle of stocking-size books, with something for everyone on your list. This bundle includes: Sorry to Bother You by Boots Riley Small Blows Against Encroaching Totalitarianism,...
My hatred for Hillary wasn’t diabolical. I never bought into the whole pizzagate thing, or the whole Uranium One thing, or the whole spirit-cooking-she-drinks-blood-infused-Podesta-rice thing, and I never once believed she was the devil. I would see those posts and just be like, Huh, if people believe that stuff about her, she must be really terrible.

And I never chanted LOCK HER UP or created memes showing her in prison, but I did laugh a little at those memes, because the thought of this accomplished woman behind bars with all her agency stripped away from her was funny to me.

So I’m a perfectly reasonable, women-friendly fellow who is completely open to the idea of a woman president. And I never thought I’d hate anyone as much as I hate Hillary Clinton. But to my surprise, I’m actually starting to hate Elizabeth Warren.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve heard that Elizabeth Warren is a champion of consumers and the middle class who battled the big banks and advocates for economic reform. Nonetheless, she rubs me the wrong way.


Celebrations of Curious Characters cracks open the personal vaults of Ricky Jay—raconteur, historian, and one of the world's great sleight-of-hand artists—exposing a wonderful world of amusing and...
I hate the way she dealt with Donald Trump’s incessant attacks against her, for example. Why did Elizabeth Warren have to take that DNA test? Why couldn’t she have handled his abuse the exact right way? If I were being libeled by the President at his toxic mob rallies of hate, by golly, I would know just how to turn that into a moment of pure perfection.

And you know the DNA test is a huge deal, because Breitbart published five different stories about it over the course of 24 hours. Though I have never once in my life given a thought about the welfare of Native Americans, I am totally offended on their behalf. The fact they have criticized Elizabeth Warren just bolsters my claim that she’s the worst person ever, besides Hillary Clinton, and thus endeth my Native American advocacy until the day I die.

Another thing about Elizabeth Warren: She claims she advocates for the poor, yet she isn’t a poor herself. She lives in a fancy house with her fancy Harvard salary. I’m no fan of Trump, but that Elizabeth Warren is such a phony. That’s a thought, and thoughts are true, and I will never examine how that thought got into my head.

I mean, think about it for a moment. If Elizabeth Warren were so great, why would Robert Mercer be funding a super PAC whose sole purpose was to portray her as an out-of touch hypocrite? If she were a truly good leader, why would so many people like me dislike her?


At once the story of a terrific act of vengeance and of a lifelong love, Hannah versus the Tree presents a new literary genre, the mythopoetic thriller.
I always tell my daughters they can be anything they want, so long as they don’t make other people feel uncomfortable. They can be as ambitious as they want, so long as they do it in an acceptable manner. They can reach for the stars, which you can see right up there on the ceiling painted to resemble a sky.

So bring it on, ladies! I’d love to see a female President. Just not Hillary Clinton. Or Elizabeth Warren. I am totally open to all other women leaders, but I have to admit that Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar are beginning to make me angry and I’m not sure why yet, but I know the reason will become clear soon, and I’m also wondering what they might look like if someone photoshopped their heads onto the bodies of prisoners and put them behind bars.

Reach for the stars, girls!
