Alert Sets Off Panic In Hawaii

Official 'false' alarm
panics Hawaiian residents

For unknown reasons the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency  released an official warning of an impending missile strike on the Island.

A follow up alert advising the first warning was in error was not issued until about 40 minutes later.

During those forty minutes it is reported people scrambled about in a state of terror and confusion as highways were plugged with people trying to get to shelters. Some abandoned their cars on the highway and took shelter in tunnels under the roadway.

Whether there are any atheists in nuclear shelters is a question worth asking.

Winchester Ave Senior Fends Off Intruder

Second incident in three days

At approximately 8 pm on Monday January 8, 2018, a senior, in her late 70's, was confronted by a masked man in her home demanding her purse and wallet. The female home owner fought back and the intruder left empty handed.

The female told police she had momentarily stepped outside to close the front gate to her Winchester Ave home and when she returned, was confronted by the male wearing a balaclava covering most of his face. The suspect pushed her into the nearest bedroom and demanded her purse. She refused to hand it over and pushed back.  After more pushing and yelling she ran to her neighbours and called 911. 

Officers, along with Police Dog Services, were on scene within 4 minutes but were unable to locate the suspect.   "She had some bumps and bruises but given what she had been through,  she was no worse for wear, " said Constable Gary O'Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP. The Nanaimo RCMP Victim Services have reached out to the senior and are assisting her.

This is the second incident in the past week at this residence.  On Saturday January 6 the home owner called police to report her jewellery box had been moved from her bedside table and found in an other room. The box had been emptied of its contents, and missing are three rings, including her wedding rings, some cash and her debit card. No suspects have been identified in this incident.

The suspect in this latest incident was wearing a dark coloured balaclava and is approximately 5 ft. 5 with a slim build and wearing dark clothing. If anyone has information on either of these two crimes, call the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.

Christmas Music From Days Long Past


As a child growing up in the 50's - 60's I have fond memories of every radio station filling the atmosphere with Christmas songs which clearly honored the reason for the season.

Neither my family, or any of my friends as I remember were church goers but there never was any question about who the Christ was or that there was a reason for his incarnation.

Back in those days, we actually had Bible study as part of our regular public school learnin' as well as beginning each day with the LORD's prayer.

I recall a sense of melancholy in the days immediately after Christmas when all of the radio stations returned to regular song choices, having put an abrupt end to the Christmas music which was heard coming from each and every radio station.

Twelve Days of Christmas

Image credit: Sher Falls www.dragonflydreams88.com

Twelve Days Of Christmas Hidden Meanings

According to Catholic history the popular song contained two levels of meaning, with one meaning being known only to members of the Church during a period of time in England when Roman Catholics could not practice their faith openly.

Each element of the carol was code for a religious reality which children could remember.

The 'true love' referred to is not some love struck boy or girl but Jesus Christ because truly love was born on Christmas Day. The partridge in the pear tree represents Him as it is a bird that will sacrifice it's life in order to protect it's young.

Two Turtle Doves ... the Old and the New Testament
Three French Hens ... Faith, Hope and Love
Four Calling Birds ... the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
Five Gold Rings ..... the first five Books of the Old Testament
Six geese a laying ... the six days of creation
Seven swans a swimming ... the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit
Eight Maids a milking ... the eight Beatitudes
Nine Ladies dancing ... the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit
Ten Lords a leaping ... the Ten Commandments
Eleven Pipers piping ... the eleven faithful Apostles
Twelve Drummers drumming ... twleve points of the Apostle's Creed

Linus Explains the Reason for the Season



And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 


For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 

 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 

 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

NO MORE ......... MORNEAU

GOOD THING WE KICKED OUT THE CORRUPT CONSERVATIVES!!

How's that promised $10 billion deficit doing??


On Tuesday, the finance department annual report presented adjusted figures and our expenses ran in less than predicted and revenues were slightly higher, giving us a deficit of only $17.8 billion. I say “only” because it was projected this spring to be $23 billion.

Remember Trudeau promised a $10 Billion maximum deficit

Now it would have been one thing if Trudeau had itemized the spending priorities that warranted the $10 billion deficit. But he never did. It was just a number pulled out of nowhere on the campaign trail.

Then they discovered once in office that they wanted to spend more, so blew their promise out of the water. Their new numbers were what caused a finance department report from last Christmas to predict deficits until the 2050s.
