Yesterday David Koch, who funded climate-science deniers for decades died of prostate cancer. Mourners have been asked that in lieu of flowers to just leave their car engines running.

I'm not convinced we even need to worry about it. We give Prime Ministers two terms almost always. Andrew Scheer just isn't very appealing. Ontario puts a different government at QP than in Ottawa. From a historical perspective, the CPC has a huge uphill battle.

I add a bit of horseradish to potato and leek soup, because it gives it a bit of a kick, and keeps the salt content down. (If one is concerned about salt content.)

I like a red onion garnish. It gives a bit of a kick to recipes some might feel are bland.

Yum. That's my kind of soup.

Over the last little while, I've considered going to a church on Sunday. Anyway, I listened to a local radio station that broadcasts a United Church service last week. There's no way I could stay awake through those sermons. No way.

It appears they've stopped producing the canned version, but the mix it yourself powdered version is still on store shelves.

Seriously, I feel lucky, although I have slept through fire alarms.

At some points, and it's not about death itself. It's how I could go. I could drop dead at any time, but I'd rather go in my sleep.

I was thinking about that just today. I don't think I've given enough consideration or thought to the idea that this actually saddens people.

They're both related. There's occasional pain, but it's not really terrible or anything. The feeling in my throat is probably the ominous part. The cancer is clearly growing in there, and nothing can be done about it.

I have a hell of a time remembering what day it is, but it's kind of enjoyable, because I'm always surprised.

Passionate, informed, and dedicated public service personified is overrated.

There is being positive, but also being realistic. What's happening is just part of the process of dying. I've known for several months what was going to unfold. It's OK.

Nope. There's no reason to be scared. I'd rather know than be in the dark. No matter what, I know I"m dying, and I've accepted it.

They test both of mine. It's incredibly normal, for whatever reason.
