Dewey's Comments

Ooh, I like it! Wish I had known sooner, would have done something for today. (Who has school on Saturday?) Thanks for the list, I see there's a participating Indigo across town.

I used to work at a movie theatre (best job for a teenager ever!). I still love popcorn. When I go to the movies I sneak in my own pop, but blow the budget on popcorn.

I'm not an American, so this is just an outsider's opinion. I don't understand how anyone thinks it does not affect them. Maybe not today, but it will in the long run. Is your government representative getting paid during this "furlough"? Is it possible to find candidates for office that are there to do their job, not there to keep their job?
Not like politics are all rosy here either:(

Some of those people spent 8 hours a day, more with overtime, 50 weeks a year, for over 40 years, at a job that sucked the life out of them. Only to retire with their gold watch at 65, and die a few years later without a complaint. Oh boy.

Sometimes I see how little some students focus on getting their work done in class. Is all this homework assigned to be done at home? Or is it because she didn't do it at school?

I guess I worded that poorly, what I mean is that if not every moment if filled with wonder and amazement, the kids are bored. I work in a school in an upper middle class town, and too many students think that they can just live off their parents forever. Not a lot a work ethic.

People have the attitude that school is for entertainment, not education. Sure it should be interesting, but everyone has responsibilities, and a student's responsibility is to go to school and do their best to learn. Lack of personal accountability permeates all social classes, in all aspects of life. And not just in the US.

Great story!
George actually listens to his guests, and is interested in what they are saying. He does get a little too enthusiastic and leans in...
Just remember, he's Canada's boyfriend.

Hogwarts! I would have picked the library planet, but as much as I love The Doctor, who wants to be watching out for flesh eating shadows when you're trying to read?

I saw a program on TV like that. Their interpretation was that the babies stared at the puppets they thought were doing something unacceptable, but preferred the kind puppets.

That's awesome! They must have done a lot of shoveling to get down to grass for the base, as it is knee deep everywhere else here!

Isn't it the responsibility of the home/business owners to remove the snow? Here we get a fine if it isn't cleared off 48 hours after the snow stops. Because walking on the road IS dangerous!

Do you wonder where they take the snow? I don't know about Montreal, but across the country in Edmonton, they take it to one of several ever-growing mountains of removed snow. Then there are bets as to how long it will take those mountain to melt. One year after an exceptionally snowy winter, one of the mountains was still several stories high when we went by on the May long weekend. I believe it was early August before it melted entirely.
