A Crash Course
Some years ago, I worked at the Iron Ore Company of Canada bush camp and construction site in Western Labrador. The area was called the Carol Project and, later, Labrador City. The only access to the site was by air, or on a branch rail line from The Quebec and North Shore & Labrador railway from Seven Islands.

Therefore, it was with no little interest that my best friend and roommate brought in his

Kid Wisdom
My 5 year old daughter announced at supper one evening that she had found a new channel on TV that she liked. She said "Mom, I loves that new channel 26"!.
I replied "Oh? I'm not sure what that channel is about".
She said "you knows the one where they're fighting all the time and everyone hates each other"!!
She then proceeded to put channel 26 on to show me. And lo and behold...it was the House of Commons channel!!!!
Well she didn't get the description of the show wrong did she? LOL

I had conducted a funeral service for one of my parishioners at the church and then the
