she might actually be the bad one initiated the fight by telling the kids to shut up on the bus and that might cause the kids to retaliate by calling her names!

I went on a 32km hike today on the Bruce Trail, I forgot my camera but saw a massive wind farm near Shelbourne, about 30 in total.

Google image of part of it.

I'm not at all comfortable with this bizarre fundraiser. Firstly, why a fundraiser at all? I would have to say that as a charity, this one really and truly is at the bottom of the barrel. Yes, it appeared that in a video she was being harassed. Does that call for a fundraiser?

Moody's downgrades 15 major banks

Quote:
The UK banks downgraded were Royal Bank of Scotland, Barclays and HSBC. Lloyds also had its rating cut by Moody's in a separate announcement.

In the US, Bank of America and Citigroup were among those marked down.

BBC business editor Robert Peston said banks were concerned the downgrades may make it harder for them to borrow money, but their shares rose on Friday.

John Raymond, senior banking analyst at research firm Credit Sights, said Moody's announcement would have little impact on the banks' abiity to borrow funds - and in turn on their customers - because it was so expected.

"The downgrades from Moody's have been expected for some time, and therefore had already been factored in," he told the BBC.

I know that this happened the other day, but for me, the gravity of this whole situation is really starting to sink in.

I do hope every investor here has a good portfolio that includes lots of gold/silver.
Buckle up folks.

I seen a 20ish year old lady ask and help out an elderly woman carry her luggage up the steps of the Ossington subway station.
I never see that in Mississauga.

Of all people, i'm surprised it seems like we're running out of real gentlemen in our society. Unless if there was no 20ish gentlemen around the site if you guys know what i mean. So that's really good for that young lady.

4 more years and i'll be there. It's really inspiring to see this though. I've always considered myself a gentleman(at least for my age group) but this helps me strive to be better, especially as i grow up.

Yep that's the way it is. No matter how old we are but we need to be gentlemen, from picking up things for them to giving up our seats for pregnant woman and oldies.

I'm with you on that one.. a person can never be too old to try and have good manners in public. Takes very little time or effort, and sets a good example for others.

Sometimes the simplest, most unsophisticated advertising is the most eye-catching:

Here's one last saturday's game that caught my eyes because i didn't realized i placed my micro camera in a wrong spot (that was me the first person appeared near the camera facing back wearing a shirt and vest with the gun ofcourse zigzagging and joining my team mate at the front line)!


And then this one that took so long to defend a bus when no one even dared to attack it! worst thing my battery failed too at start of the game...


Tsk i really need to buy a GoPro camera.....
