Hi, I'm back. I kinda lost what you call the fire in the belly to write about anything for awhile. Then I had a lot of major dental work done that kept me away from the keyboard running back and forth to the dentist for months on end and I am still not done. I have also been busy helping my daughter out with her two little ones 1 and 2 years old. I feel good now, things are starting to settle down now for me and I got some of that fire back. I thought since this is an election year federally and possibly provincially too in Alberta I would get back to blogging again at least whenever I have something to write about. Seems like it will be a rather full year with all that's going on with plummeting oil prices, terror attacks etc. There will be lots of material to work from.
Federally we conservatives will have a fight on our hands mainly with the media party and the Trudeau Liberals who seem to be pretty high in polls right now if you believe them, Posting will be light to begin with until later in the spring when things will start to heat up.
Provincially, since we don't have a real opposition anymore, the premier is talking sales taxes, etc. to ward off the economic storm that 's coming because of low oil prices and mismanagement of our money. There is a lot of speculation about going to the polls sometime in the spring.
Lot's going in the US too. The Republicans have control of both houses in Congress at the same time everyone is gearing up for the presidential primaries in both parties. Obama weak on foreign policy and doing a terrible job domestically.
The rest of the world seems to be on fire with all the turmoil and violent terrorist attacks, Putin trying to put the old soviet union back together. Buckle up, it looks like 2015 is going to be one heck of a ride. Stay tuned, should be fun.
P.S. I intend on posting only when I have something worthwhile to say.
It's good to be back!
