The power went out. From 3 pm to midnight yesterday. Sat around in one room for the evening and marveled at the power of the battery. I tweeted and listened to radio. Ice was to blame.

♦ I like beer as much as the next guy. Probably more. But I am not sure why one of Ontario's less interesting brewers deserved $1,000,000 in tax support annually.
♦ Really? I assume the PM does not know every implication of every Federal legal brief. And besides. If the brief was correct in relation to same sex marriage, it also means that the same is true for different sex marriage - if you don't meet a foreign level of consanguinity in your home country, a Canadian marriage would not be valid. No one believes that.

♦ Scots apparently are not free to make up their minds. Time to revive the Declaration of Arbroath. "It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself." Makes you weepy just thinking about it.
There. Done. Gotta work one more day before the gorging of rib fest begins. Thanks, blackout, for reminding me to make time for ribs.
