Welcoming The New Year

 

The kitchen is again belching smoke, and the fireplace starts to roar. The tree that I chopped provided the firewood. I am economizing on the heating starting today.

The driveway fought so hard to give up the ice stuck to it, but I persisted with my snowblower. For this New Year, my driveway will be colored red with the brick standing out.

I wish for that portion of Eastern Canada the best. I really would not know how to help them. The weather has decided to buffet them this year. Their winter could not be this worse come next year.

The best of my yuletide greetings to the readers of this blog who have persisted in deciphering what I really wanted to say between the lines. Frankly, I sometimes run out of lines.

But my wishes to you folks is not a line. I mean it—Happy New Year, and thanks for the time you gave this blog.

As for the lovely, lovely ladies of which photos are uploaded here, I hope I done you justice.

You will not see your photo up here if they do not look good. You do look good.

There are not many photos of guys in this blog—naturally, I am in to girls, not guys!!!!!!

Also, I have my standards to maintain.

And my nepenthe to (hic) quaff!

Olympic Terrorism

 

This is to be expected. Anything to disrupt something is a challenge for terrorists. They do not have anything better to do. Bringing down something seems to give them fame, and maybe fortune. No other reason is afforded nor offered as an excuse to blow up or kidnap or burn something. It must be hard for them to be terrorists. They spend a lot of time praying so as to leave very little time for gainful employment. They still have to sustain themselves, so they use their weapons to do it.

But what happens when they run out of targets, and funds to feed themselves?

If the terrorists have a religion, this particular religion depends upon the other separate religions for sustenance.

For this end, it is difficult not to treat this particular religion as a parasite religion.

Terrorism in Sochi is to be expected, because this place is in close proximity to where terrorists thrive.

Ukrainian Protests

 

I am beginning to understand what the protests are really about. The Ukrainians who were a big contingent in the Soviet Army of World War II, have risen against the excessive influence of Russia upon their own government. It is mostly on international trade and foreign relations that are in much concern regarding the protests. The Ukrainians wish to cultivate broader relations with Europe and will thus facilitate relations between Ukraine and Europe. After this, Ukraine will have a trade relations with Europe very much independent of Russia. Also, there would be much migrations to and from the countries concerned.

Now there is a large Ukrainian population in the Western Canada, mostly in the prairies, as their specialties lie in agriculture. The population is so large in Alberta that they form big Ukrainian communities, and oftentimes deserve to include in the school curriculum, Ukrainian as a second language. They have proven to be very good, loyal and law-abiding citizens. They also must be exclusively free to practice what their culture preaches.

Russia, however, is still on the verge of completing its own confederation of countries similar to the western  NATO. And the more populous, erstwhile benign, country of Ukraine form a big part of this plan.

Putin counteracts the protests by offering to buy out the billions of dollars in national debt incurred by the Ukrainian government. Naturally, and by necessity, the Ukrainian government has accepted this offer.

Out of 49 lotto numbers, there are only 18,424 three-number combinations that can be formed. There were drawn 109,235  3- number combinations from 3121  649 draws so far. This involves every 7-number lotto draw of which there are 35 three-number combinations for each draw.

Notice that in this list, these lotto numbers are missing : 6,9,36,37,38,40,42,44,45.

Forming lotto picks by combining any two in this list may not be advisable for obvious reasons, one of which may result in a lot of lotto picks. Also, it may take a longer time for these numbers to hit.
