Oh My, seems that yet another person is upset that they can’t become a citizen of Canada because they have a difference of opinion as to what it takes to come here and be a Canadian. Naomi Lakritz of the Calgary Herald always has a way with words that I envy, and she has a column that I found very interesting. Check it out: Citizen of Canada


Another column appeared by Susan Martinuk, another writer that I admire. She wrote about another issue that has been smouldering for a long time now, and I happen to agree with our Federal Government as to the handling. Susan from the Herald says it way better than I do. Read on: Native women deaths



Once more I offer a very good magician. I often do not care for what they do, but I have to agree this guy is good. Check it out: Darcy Oakes

At Carnegie Hall, gospel singer Wintley Phipps delivers perhaps the most powerful rendition of Amazing Grace ever recorded.  He says, "A lot of people don’t realize that just about all Negro spirituals are written on the black notes of the piano.  Slaves were not permitted to use the white keys.
Probably the most famous on this slave scale was written by John Newton, who used to be the captain of a slave ship, and many believe he heard this melody that sounds very much like a West African sorrow chant.  And it has a haunting, haunting plaintive quality to it that reaches past your arrogance, past your pride, and it speaks to that part of you that’s in bondage.
And we feel it.  We feel it.  It’s just one of the most amazing melodies in all of human history." After sharing the noteworthy history of the song, Mr.
Phipps delivers a stirring performance that brings the audience to its feet!

Some of us will remember the Archie Bunker show a long time ago. Archie was a racist of the first order. This piece is a true classic, and you should get tears in your eyes from watching this hoot. Archie Bunker
