Trashy's World: 2014 is the Chinese year of the horse. Does this mean I should blow a bundle at the track?

I don’t often “recycle” posts. Yes, I am lazy, but what’s the point of a blog if you just re-post old stuff? But I thought that I’d dig up last years “Resolutions” post to see how I made out and to add any new stuff. Turns out it was a bit (OK, a lot) of . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: 2014 is the Chinese year of the horse. Does this mean I should blow a bundle at the track?

Trashy's World: DJ’s Roofing – anyone know about them?

If so, someone should tell the owner that a bunch of yahoos in one of their trucks (didn’t get the phone number and can’t find them with Google) ran the stop sign at the three-way stop at the end of my street last night (August 17) at about 7 pm… just as my 6 year . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: DJ’s Roofing – anyone know about them?

Trashy's World: Resolutions for 2013…

… Before I have a second glass of Pinot Noir… – not be as critical of our Dear Leader and encourage all my friends to cut he and his Cabinet some slack.

First, I am sorrow-filled for yet another young person who has taken their own life because of bullying.

I don’t think there is a neighbourhood competition to see how many bags of poop can be deposited at the same stop sign. I don’t get it.
