Sigh . . . It’s Sept. 1, and summer is on the wane — though, the temperature is still in the mid-20s (mid-70sF) here. But I am reminded today that I will soon have to wear pantyhose or tights again after a few months of bare-legging it.

Maybe it’s the Valley Girl in me, but I am really enjoying California wines these days. I’ve often talked about Barefoot wines, but I tried another California red this weekend and am both surprised and, yes, wanting to buy a second bottle.

Muslims should speak out against ISIS

Tags

I am encouraged by some of the imams in Canada who have been speaking out against the ISIS terrorist group, and are warning about the radicalization of young people. I think more Muslims need to speak out, to assure the world that they do not back ISIS and its archaic 14th-century view of Islam.

Tags

Jon Stewart on The Daily Show delivered a great monologue with words of advice to  ISIS last night (Aug. 27). Among the clever lines was one made in reference to an American who joined ISIS and has since been killed. Apparently, in social media, Douglas McAuthur McCain had listed the Chicago Bulls and Pizza Hut among his favourite things.

ISIS: Why the slow response from the international community?

Countless rapes and murders in the name of God? Such blasphemy from the psychopaths that make up ISIS. No one should think they are true representatives of Islam. Nobody should judge all Muslims by the actions of that terrorist organization.

Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven should never be covered!

Tags

Call me a purist, but when it comes to Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven, I do not want to hear any cover versions. So, when CHOM-FM played the homogenized Heart version of Zep’s Stairway this morning, I switched it off and put on a Beatles CD . . . Roll Over Beethoven!

A sad story on The Gazette website right now . . .

The mother of a U.S. journalist being held by the scumbag terrorist cult ISIS has made a plea to its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, for her son’s release.
