Quote of the Day

Strunk and White’s caution in The Elements of Style, “Do not affect a breezy manner. The breezy style is often the work of an egocentric, the person who imagines that everything that pops into his head is of general interest and that uninhibited prose creates high spirits and carries the day.”Stand up for Margaret Wente, who has run afoul of the political correctness crowd in Canada for speaking plainly about things that the PCers want to pretend don’t exist and many of them are clamouring for her to lose her job over it.

Stentor Christmas Lunch 2008

The e-vite has gone out – but I’m posting here for those folks who’s e-mails I’ve not been able to find.Location
Donegal Irish Pub
1637 - 37th Street SW, Calgary, ABWhen
Friday, November 28, 11:45amA little different lunch this year.  Rather than the usual Chinese Buffet - we're having an Irish style wake and reunion at Donegal Irish Pub.  More details on Donegal can be found at
November 28 is a special day - it's ten years to the day of the announcement of the Stentor wind down - so this makes this the 10th Annual Post Stentor Christmas Lunch.

Hope to see you there - especially if Clint comes dressed as a leprechaun.

Adding ICE to your Cellphone

Cole's Note: I usually don't forward the chain e-mails that folks send me - but this is such a good simple idea - it deserves to be posted.

We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.

If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.

As cell(mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name 'ICE' ( In Case Of Emergency).
