It’s been over two weeks since I blogged. It’s been busy: lots of projects at work, my sister and her husband came in to town and stayed at our place, my mother-in-law had health issues so my wife and her sisters were visiting her. As I say busy, busy.
In the meantime, I’m participating in my Green candidate’s election campaign, putting up signs, canvassing and managing the fauxharper attack blog. I attended an all candidates debate at Beth Emeth synagogue, but the clueless moderator turned it into a very boring, single issue debate. It was all Israel, Israel, Israel. Of course, Israel is an important issue, deserving of our support, but let’s not lose sight of the fact we live in Canada, and we’re under attack here as well, from the right-wing policies of Stephen Harper and the Conservative party.
I received a phone message from Ken Dryden after blasting his campaign workers for ignoring my request for face-time until they needed my support during an election. He promised to call back, but never did. I spoke to him briefly at the debate, but he basically wouldn’t commit to a position on either net neutrality or copyright.
Onto more pleasant subjects: I bought an electric guitar off craigslist and took my first music lesson. Sadly, I’ve been too busy to practice much; but I’ve already started to turn that around. This is important to me, so I pledge to dedicate time to this. I’m shooting for at least 15 minutes of practice a day.
Well, that’s it for now. See you in the funny papers.
