Monte Solberg, Member of Parliament for Medicine Hat Ian sez, "Canadian Conservative MP Monte Solberg could well be the first person to blog directly from the floor of the Canadian House of Commons. He did so, via Blackberry, last night." Many, who'd a thunk it -- a Tory breaking new blogging ground.

I hope this posts. Am blogging from my blackberry in the House where I have just voted for our non-confidence motion. The Libs are trying hard to play this down. They have two cabinet ministers out, Efford and Cotler. We'll win, but they'll claim it's non confidence.

Pretty unhappy campers over there! They can't believe that there iron grip on power and pocketnooks might be loosed. Kilgour just voted with the Libs. Hmmm. 153 to 150. We win!
Missoulian: World's tallest horse visits Missoula today: "Goliath is a 14-year-old Percheron draft horse who stands 19.1 hands tall. That's three to five hands taller than your typical horse and a hand or two higher than the average Percheron.

In all, Goliath stands 6-foot-5 from hoof to withers. He weighs 2,500 pounds, or 1 1/4 tons.

That's about double the average horse, and 500 pounds more than most Percherons."

There's a photo and more details on the link.
