One day a wife tells her husband:
"Joe, you could do something useful, like vacuum the house once a week.”
Joe gives it a moment's thought and says: "Sure! Why not? Where's the vacuum?" Half an hour later, Joe comes into the kitchen to get some coffee.
His wife says, "I didn't hear the vacuum running. I thought you were going to do the vacuuming?"
Exasperated, Joe answers, "The stupid thing is broken; it won't start. We need to buy a new one."
she says, "Show me -- it worked fine the last time."
So he shows her. (Grandpa tries to start vacuum cleaner Δημιούργησα αυτό το βίντεο με το Πρόγραμμα επεξεργασίας βίντεο του YouTube...

Comments16/06/2017 #7 David B. GrinbergNice buzz, Jim. Canada is looking better each day from my humble perch as an American idealist for effective government, civil discourse and non-violence. Please save that "crawl space" in your new home for my wife and I -- just in case things really go south, so we can go north!15/06/2017 #5 Peter AltschulerIt will always be Canadia to me, @Jim Murray. Otherwise, you'd all be Canadans. (Of course, we in the south, should be United Statesians, not Americans: America encompasses both North and South America and all the nations in them. So folks in Belize and Bolivia are, technically, American, too.)
Enjoy your sesquicentennial celebration, Jim, assuming you'll have one. You can have a parade with Canadia's national car, the Chevrol, eh?, pulling floats that expand from Swan to say Saskatchewan and have, as the Grand Marshall, the Lone Ranger's sidekick, Toronto. Then you can top it all off with the national cheer: "C" eh? "N" eh? "D" eh? And take solace in that fact that, despite using loonies as money, you have true dough.15/06/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThere are times when I am in my home and the media we play and the things we access online leave me feeling like I have not moved from London, England. If I go across the street I enter Beijing, if I veer to the right, I enter Warsaw, Poland, and to the left of that house I enter Cairo, Egypt. That is the nature of the city I live in, but it is not representative of the wider nature of Canada.
I wish the folks that live in the urban areas I do would have a wider appreciation of Canada, but that is the nature of Toronto - a city that is microcosm of the world where people speak have a myriad of languages https://elalliance.com/toronto-languages/ While there is diversity within diversity in Toronto, the character of the country has its own diverse spectrum. I would rather had my family settle in Calgary than where it was agreed by majority we would settle. British Columbia would have been a great fit also being that in some parts it is no different to the British weather I grew up with.
This buzz speaks to all the other things that I could mention and it is representative of the way that I generally view Canada. England is no longer the country I spent the first 30 years of my life and I can sympathize with the young who tried to vote in Corbyn, as well as the older folk who wanted "to take their country back" - but that is what has poisoned the atmosphere there and in the United States.
The young are not blind in viewing leaders like Corbyn and Bernie Sanders as highly intelligent thinkers but the older generation and the less educated have become cynical and want to return to a time that has now gone. At least Canada has so far been spared this crazy schism. At the end of the day, even if I personally wanted to live in the West Coast, my family made the best decision possible to choosing this country for our kids to grow up in and to develop some semblance of a meaningful future.15/06/2017 #1 Sara JacoboviciSpoken like a true ("North Strong & Free") Canuck, @Jim Murray. Nice read. I can't help but think of the time between the Centennial (listening to this as I write https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj4LZB5oarA) and the 50 years to now. Wishing Canada many generations ahead of peace and prosperity!

Comments04/04/2017 #18 Randall BurnsThank You @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher , always great to hear from you. if you were hoping that it wasn't going to fall then you already knew that it was going to, (your intuition was already there). It is a matter of perspective but I don't think it would be as good of a story, or a message, if it didn't fall. Makes me think about how many great stories I've missed out on because everything went well and "as planned".04/04/2017 #13 Dean OwenI am in awe of your talent! I do hope you get a chance to see (or even participate) in the annual Harbin Ice Festival:
http://edition.cnn.com/2017/01/09/travel/harbin-winter-festival-china/04/04/2017 #12 AnonymousIce sculpting!!!! Awesome! My snowmen were sculptures to my young Canadian eyes. Oh home sweet home I miss you. Though I suppose home is wherever I am and really, San Diego's sunshine is its own slice of paradise for now for certain. Loved this!!! Your pen sculpts things too! :)04/04/2017 #11 Don 🐝 Kerr@Randall Burns Ah Jeez my son, what a beauty Husqy. You must have ripped it up some good! Great story again. Reminded me of my dad, he ran a sawmill, and the first chainsaw he introduced me to back in the early '60s. Seven freakin' hp!!! Sounded like a Zero diving on to the Indianapolis!04/04/2017 #10 Aaron 🐝 Skogen#9 I remember watching! Yeah, from memory, I thought they opened Strange Brew with The Great White North in the background too . . .
Regardless, those guys were hilarious. I still LMAO when I watch that show. It never gets old.
Being from MN and knowing many Canadians, I always felt a sort of kinship with our friends to the north.
I may have to watch a few episodes of SCTV via the Internet tonight. A laugh would do me good 😉.04/04/2017 #9 Randall Burns#7 Thanks for the great feedback @Sara Jacobovici, @Kevin Pashuk, @Aaron 🐝 Skogen
- Great version of "Oh Canada", I had to stand up in my office while watching. :-)
- Sthil's are excellent saws! The title photo is actually from the 'SCTV" show, Canada's answer to SNL, a regular sketch that they did, (Bob and Doug McKenzie), called "The Great White North", was the predecessor to "Strange Brew". Note, this was "back in the day" when they could still smoke and drink beer on TV, LMAO!! A lot of Canadian actors got their start on "SCTV", Martin Short, John Candy, Dan Aykryod, just to name a few, hilarious show.03/04/2017 #6 Sara JacoboviciYes, i agree with all, @Randall Burns; you are a great storyteller, mood music and all! Love your attitude towards your sculpture falling. Love your story of the beer encounter with a fellow Canadian, eh. Love the diversity of images and sounds and how you pulled it all together. Please keep sharing your stories. Hope you enjoy this Vancouver version of O'Canada. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc3OO0IUPjE03/04/2017 #5 Aaron 🐝 Skogen@Randall Burns, I'm a Sthil guy myself, but that Husky is a no doubt a good saw. The closest I've come to ice sculpting was cutting my dock free after leaving town for week at thanksgiving. I came home to find it locked into six inches of ice. . .
"My brother, he's a genuis eh!"
Being a Minnesota farm kid and one who's dad had a sawmill, I can relate to "haven't we all. . ." In both contexts 😉.
Loved the Strange Brew intro photo! Great story Randall!
