Dear Faithful Reader, A Personal Aside

I like using my blog for writing my erotic stories, but I felt I needed a place to discuss other things so I am designating this post for that. Probably I will be writing about the latest places I have hiked (Linley Valley today for a couple hours) or the latest song I have learned on guitar. (Dreamer by Ozzy, ON NEW STRINGS!! YaY!! they sound so much nicer, just about ready for my annual migration to wreck beach!)
I would also like to use this post for playing the THREE QUESTIONS game, so if you have some just ask! This is also where I can take requests for new photo ideas, stories or intro videos (if I can figure out how to put them on AdultFriendFinder from a digital camera).
Have a safe fun weekend, "To all my friends" Henry 4:12 (Barfly)

I was out hiking with the dogs on Vipond road today. Nice walk on the west side, lots of fireweed. The dogs were amazed to see some horses (giant dogs!?). I Saw Without a Paddle and learned the "hold on loosely" chords, good for stretching.

If you have reached this post then, 'welcome to my secret place, my underwear drawer if you will.' This is the spot where I pad my comment-total with tales of minutiae from my life.
I updated my profile pictures with some hiking shots from the Radar tower on Sugarloaf. I hope to try and change them more often now that summer is here. I also changed my match criteria a bit, I am no longer in search of couples of any kind. I Had a negative experience recently, but more to the point, I am getting more focused on finding my dream girl (over the hills and far away).
I am excited this morning, there is a 1.1 tide at 11:00 am, so you know Belle and I will be down at Icarus-Sealand beach. Had a nice long hike on Saturday to the right shoulder of Mt. Benson of Vipond road again. Calves are a little sore, but in a good way. I need to go for a good run!!

ooops, managed to get a little sunburnt on the shoulders the other day at the beach. The dogs had fun though. Lately I have been thinking of writing the Canadian version of the communist manifesto. Not sure this is the place to post it, but I need a scratchpad sooo...
In the broadest sense, the battle is between the rich and the poor. I have never understood why the socialists/democrats do not win every election in every country, considering that they outnumber the 'Rich'. Voter apathy I suppose, though I suppose some people vote Republican because Texas was a republic and other's vote Conservative in Canada because their parent's mistakenly believe the rich also want to take care of the middle class. We collectively need to smarten up and, as Lemmy put it, "eat the rich." (Motorhead) Globally our biggest environmental issue is by far is deforestation. We will run out of oil eventually (thereby heating up the atmosphere for a few hundred years), but I believe we can survive this. Without forests (lungs) we are in trouble.
At the federal level in Canada, step one is to abolish the senate, a quiet place for sober second pensions, er thoughts. While we are at it we can shut down DFO, as we don't have any fish left on either coast for them to protect. Canadian Heritage as well, I believe Neil Young and Sam Roberts will flesh out our identity better than more bizzare CRTC shorts about rural Manitoba lacrosse paintings. Might as well shut down Environment and Natural Resources too, as the division of powers has effectivly given the important decisions to the provinces. While this may sound economically conservative, it has more to do with the notion that Ottawa could disappear overnight and B.C. would not be demonstrably different. The feds can also stop playing the health care game of giving the provinces the tax money back, minus a few dollars. If they don't hire the doctors, their hands shouldn't be within 20 feet of the money. Indian and Northern Affairs can stay, but the white people in this ministry must give up their jobs to Aboriginals. That should save us some money.
On a provincial level, we all know the direction it is heading. Reducing optional ICBC coverage versus the basic coverage has a net regressive taxation effect. ie. It is good for the rich, bad for the poor. The Ferry Corp. exists to keep Vancouver Island in confederation and as far as the Islanders are concerned it is Highway not a private cruise line. At one point the Ministry of Forests brought in and spent about 75% of provincial revenue. Now about 60% of the civil service is involved in Health care. This is our biggest issue and it is a complex one. I believe it is a O.B. problem, the heirarchical nature of the Doctor-Nurse-Patient relationship needs to be fixed. Probably you should only be speaking to a triage nurse/doctor unless it is very serious. We can't afford to pay G.P.'s a hundred bucks a shot to say "I don't know, you have my permission to go to this specialist." more later...
