The power of advertising
It was a bizarre way to let a college student “cheat’ on an exam, I thought many years ago.
National: Oh, what a winter!
Muammar Gadaffi, look out! Two High Prairie ladies are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore. Now as it happens, both Judy and Lily tend to have strong opinions in the first place. Mix those opinions with a winter that just won’t go away, add a dash of nutbar dictatorship over in Libya and you have a first class case of good ol’ Canadian cabin fever. As a matter of fact, we’re thinking of signing up to kick some Gadaffi butt ourselves.

The sleepover began like any other – the boys were indoors & outdoors. In & out. In & out. Starving. Upstairs & downstairs. Up & down. Up & down. Starving. Five little boys in one house sure have a way of making their presence known; mostly by absences…the absence of any concept of quiet or personal space. (note to self: never ever forget to lock bathroom door again) The absence of any clean areas in the house (but most especially in the “off limit” areas.)
