A little More Odds and Sods!

Here is a picture of our Parliament building in Alberta.
I have always liked buildings with character!
As well as that politicians with character.
As far as my political views or political opinions,
 I prefer to keep them to myself,
just the same as I do any religious beliefs.
Occassionally I get into a debate,
I did with my father when I was eighteen!
It was the first time I voted,
and I voted different than my father,
I remember him being upset because he saw it that I had just cancelled his vote.
I told him then that actually he had cancelled my vote!
I had forgotten about this until I was looking at the picture.
I think that was the first time I ever disagreed with my father!
The next time we voted we never discussed it!
Back to the picture, they do have the most spectacular grounds in the summer.
I will have to get down and take some pictures,
At the lunch hours, it is full of wokers
soaking up the sun, listening to the water,
being in a park, just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown city.
I love visiting the grounds
and well I have to put it on my
to do list
Tomorrow I will be participating in The Simple Things
hosted by Christina from Soul Aperture
If you do not know her, please have a visit.
Not only does she have fabulous photography,
she is a great cook, wonderful, wonderful
words always, famous for her word swoon,
She is one of Gods angels on earth,
That is exactly how I feel about her.
Have a wonderful day everybody,
Remember our attitude either makes or breaks our day!
I think kindness and love
are more powerful

than any politics.

  6. I have been to these grounds very often and you are right they are beautiful even in the evening as they are lit up with wonderful little lights.
    Cinner, this is the first time in a few days I have been able to open your blog, I am having the same problem with a few others as well. I am hoping it is blogger and not my computer.

  11. Shadow, thanks for stopping by....have a wonderful week, I will be off for a few days I think, unless the gravitational pull beckons me here.

    Jackie, I took it the other day on the way to my doctors. I am very glad you do. love you, keep up the great job.

    Ribbon you are so kind, I see your taking a break, a much deserved one. I noticed in your photo earlier how much your little bloke has grown, enjoy your time with him. I will be here when you come back. Love you too!

    Hi Caroline, i will be by to visit your list, I am getting company tomorrow. My two nephews coming to help me clean and then spend the night with me. should be lots of fun.

    Christina, you are simply a darling....I love you more. lol.

    Bernie, I have one blog I visit that I can not comment on, and on the dashboard there will 2 or 3 postings of blogs, I go to open and they open one story and the other 2 posts are not there. seems like a google glitch. I did not think you forgot me that fast. lol. I am just glad you can get in now. Big hug, more snow on our way.

  12. Donna, I think you would love Canada, especially throughout Alberta and B.C. THERE is so much to see. I have never been out to the Maritimes. I would love to get out there. Soon your package will be there. Take care my friend. glad I have met you here in blogland.

    Cora, I will be by to visit you to see your list.take care my friend.

    Hi Terry, thanks for dropping in, I am glad you like to visit. Now you got me liking Zen poetry.
    Be well.

    Char, I will be by to read. just letting you know today about 4 posts were showing up on the dashboard, it would open your blog but only your flying away one was there....blogger may be having a few glitches, a couple of people have mentioned not be able to leave a comment, and I have not been able to too. just a heads up for you. Until tomorrow.

    Sue Ann, I knew you would. take care, are you doing the simple things, I think that is how we met, so probably will be by for a visit.
