    New Zealand 60, Canada 1, the final score

    I just heard about this tournament, and game,
    over-hearing a conversation about a sporting event I'm not sure about.
    That's all I've got to say right now, except,
    it doesn't sound very sporting.

    Considering the different events being discussed,
    one seat over at a Tim Hortons', late at night,
    I'd say a women's team from some Olympic event.

    My personal score, after five weeks of sleeping outside,
    is four ticks and twenty-nine mosquitoes.
    Overcast days keep me from feeling hot and sweaty,
    but I'm sitting out the rain a lot, raining a few times every day,
    almost every day.
    This means I'm reading a lot, a nice way to spend the time.
    There are tick infestations around the peninsula and up along Lake Erie,
    people saying no mosquitoes allow more ticks.
    My family doctor says he lives in a tick infested area, Chippewa,
    and one time, after being in the backyard swimming with his family,
    they pulled off seventeen ticks.

    ow, ow, okay, no ticks and time ticking away jokes.

    I'm in a big social services agency, eight people sitting around,
    and I asked about this score and no-one knows anything.
    No tick-talk today.

    It looks like scores are being settled up to the stratosphere.
    Canadas' Bombardier has been hit with a new 220% duty for product shipped to the disUnited States.
    Chances are Canadas' Prime Minister will score a zero, as cancelling the order for 12 American fighter planes.
    There's a record heat wave here with dense humidy, people with breathing disorders being hospitalized,
    and the waters of Lake Erie being described as warmer than body temperature.

    I'm seeing big numbers, constant numbers on screens, a new score, from Las Vegas.
    Sad to say it's the continuing number of people who are dying from injuries,
    and reporting them, after the mass murder.
    In the disUnited States, it takes four or more people being killed all at once,
    to qualify as a mass murder.
    One report said that as of this time, there have been 64 mass murders this year.

    I have to add my own, professional musician, if not entertainer, comments.
    It was a country music street festival, and when the shooting began,
    the onstage band stopped playing and ran off the stage.
    I'm thinking the country star, a Mr. Aldean, should have stopped the band,
    informed the crowd, and started pointing out ways to run away.
    For sure, he would have been a new American hero,
    and he could have played himself in the television special, movie and cable series.
    Let the songs and videos begin.

    as a rich businessman, while Melanie is his third, and elected first lady.

    It looks like new numbers are setting all-time records, for the disUnited States.
    The death toll for California wild-fires is over 50, missing is over 300,
    and the property damages are by far the worst in all of American history,
    and the fires are still raging, still spreading, with the same winds predicted for four more days.

    However, the overall average for the number of States and undeclared States is about the same.
    Obviously, Puerto Rico has lost status, declared a beyond reparation debtor, owing over 70 billion,
    to the United States of America, according to President Donald Trump.
    Ontario, here in Canada, is picking up the slack.
    The provincial government has decided to lower the electric bills for residential and business,
    by saying, hey, it's like a mortgage, borrowing money on hydro assets, including future billing.
    This means interest payments of 30 billion dollars to a New York based financial institution.
    The province has also sold a 51% interest in Ontario Hydro to "the public",
    even if no-one knows what Ontario public people, or Americans, have paid to own it.

    But what is causing the most conversation, missing the stores and products,
    is the loss of Sears, one of Canada's oldest and most admired retailers.
    A new American board executive sent over 600 million dollars into the states,
    last year, saying he had to pay American stock-holders, instead of investing in stores.
    Canadian executives are saying everything was being pulled out from underneath them,
    to cause the stores to go under.
    When I was 16, friends paying me to not cut their hair as much as barber shops did,
    my parents got me a barber clipper kit, Kenmore, from Sears, that I'm still using.
    I still have the original box, instructions and more than half of the tube of oil.
    I'm using the Weller soldering gun my father got as a wedding present, in 1949.

    Life is what you make it, but it's better when the items of your lives are built to last,
    and the jobs to manufacture, and repair them, are local for you.

    It looks like New Zealand is coming back on top of newsworthy scores,
    this newest one being their election of the youngest Prime Minister in 150 years.
    She is also a very good looking woman.

    The Premier of Ontario, said to have the lowest polling scores of all party leaders,
    is also being criticized for putting herself up front and center for new political advertising.
    The Auditor General of Ontario is also criticizing her for her governments' treatment of Ontario Hydro.
    The Premiers' election manager had all charges dropped, a judge deciding it wasn't worth the trial,
    when the R.C.M.P. and Crown Attorneys' office were proceeding to prosecute.
    A judge deciding a trial isn't necessary is also a first under the Elections Act of Ontario.

    California keeps taking the lead with new weather statistics.
    Montecito, the home of Oprah Winfrey and the biggest Hollywood celebrities,
    has been in the news the last couple of days, because so far, 17 people have died,
    with many more missing.
    Montecito managed to avoid the wildfires, burning all around the enclave,
    but when the rains came it created a mudslide that residents say was worse than being burned out.
    Over 200 homes were totally destroyed.

    The mud became even more dangerous, in the heat, crusting up on top.
    When rescuers walked over a swimming pool or change of landscaping,
    they would break through and sink beneath the surface.

    Another global weather statistic has been shattered, and that's as in frozen things shattering.
    A community in Russia, said to be the coldest place on earth,
    with temperatures getting down to minus 61, got down to minus 72 for the first time.
    Schools that are open when temperatures are around normal, minus 40,
    closed, and people in general were warned to stay inside and stay warm.

    Two Chinese students made news by stripping down naked,
    and jumping into hot springs, something the locals didn't want to do.

    Canadian prairie border crossing employees saying they've noticed a change.
    Americans who are driving refugees, whether private or governmental,
    aren't driving them right to the border any more, dropping them off below the border.
    Out of five men who walked in sub-zero winter temperatures, three lost all their fingers,
    some losing toes. One man and his wife are losing fingers and toes.
    A Canadian border crossing employee said if they were dropped off at the border,
    they had 600 feet to walk into their town to the nearest hotel,
    but expecting them to walk for over four hours is asking for death.

    And talking about two students getting naked, in Denmark,
    two students video recorded themselves having sex,
    and at fifteen, that's the legal age for having sex in Denmark.
    However, over 1,000 adults have been served legal notices,
    that may lead to arrest, for sending this video and down-loading it.
    Authorities say more people will be served.

    I just found out from Prog Head that Rush has announced their retirement.
    Replying to Prog Head in progressive rock was enough typing about that for me.
    It's strange when people you know get to be that famous and wealthy,
    Rush being the third biggest grossing act in rock history, after the Beatles and Stones.
    This isn't a score, that's for sure, but a big void in the rock music world.
    Hmmm! I wonder who the City of Toronto is going to get to design the statue,
    and Scarborough, St. Catharines, Hamilton...

    I'm just looking over this thread and I noticed something.
    The posting about the record number of whales that are beaching in Canada is no longer here.

    The new leader of the Ontario Conservative Party, has just resigned. One down.
    Two girls who had sex with him when they were all younger made accusations.
    The man who replaced him, after a few days, was the focus of more accusations,
    and he and his entire staff resigned, six more down.
    Now the party is leaderless a few months before the next election.
    Doug Ford, the brother of previous Toronto mayor Rob Ford, one pre-down,
    announced he's not running for mayor in the next election, wanting to be the Conservative leader.
    Rob Ford was known for using crack, being an alcoholic, and having hookers visit in his office.
    And yes, it really gets only worse.
    The mayor of Toronto is taunting Doug Ford by saying he's working out of his mothers' basement,
    and sure enough, the photo today of Doug Ford announcing his Conservative candidacy,
    was in his mother's home and looked like a rec room. That's one gonna-be down.

    Ontario Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, with one term under her manly girl belt,
    is often described by voters who say if she wins another term,
    her Wynne-Wynne government is a no-win for us.
    The contest between her and another female candidate to be the leader,
    was promoted by the Liberal party as being between a lesbian and a real estate salesperson,
    so I'm not inferring anything new here.
    Prime Minister Brian Mulroney went from having the biggest majority of elected representatives,
    to having only two seats in Parliament, after he inflicted the G.S.T. tax on Canada.
    That's either the Goods and Services Tax, a 7% tax on all goods sold and services provided,
    what every resident and business person paid when you spent money,
    or Get Stoned Tonight, the monthly cheque you got if you were a government dependent,
    what was called a rebate cheque. And that's being down in more ways than one.
    Now his daughter announced she'll be running for the Conservative leadership.

    All this sexual news actually inspired me to make a joke.

    If two people are getting together online,
    and decide to meet for a cup of coffee,
    and one of them makes unwanted sexual demands,
    what kind of harassment is this?
    An in-Timmy-date.

    And for those who don't know,
    Tim Horton Donuts is the largest coffee franchise in Ontario,
    where most people say I'll meet you at Timmys'.
    This joke could have been about Starbucks...
    but... uh... yeah... too American.
