Recent Promotions

Wow, look at all the "old guys" : ) The pics at left are not in any "seniority" order. Actually there isn't any seniority for us retirees after we leave the job. That's a pretty good thing because I'm just as important as Tapak now!

Anyway, the guys at left were all promoted at 0800 hrs, on Sunday, January 6, 2008. Best of luck and congrats to the latest older generation :)

Captain Gary Meloche promoted to District Chief, Fire Rescue

Captain David Shuttleworth promoted to District Chief, Fire Rescue
Firefighter Greg Renaud promoted to Captain, Fire Rescue
Firefighter Dino Santarossa promoted to Captain, Fire Rescue
Firefighter William Craig promoted to Captain, Fire Rescue

What's The French Word For "Ooops!"?

Montreal city workers have finished cementing the pillars in front of this building to prevent vehicles from parking in front of it.

Ok, so the big problem now is how to drive their own vehicle back to City Hall. Obviously there must be a trap door in the sidewalk. : )

Thanks to Art Caza for this one : )

Poor Toronto

Hey, we're all aware that Torontonians are very "special" people according to themselves. The following video depicts just how very special these folks are. After all, I believe Toronto is where the original term "yuppies" was created : ) Maybe we should all travel to TO and invite them for a great big group hug; I think they'd like that a lot.

Bruno Hits The Big Time

He's finally done it! Bruno B has achieved his life long ambition; to become a super model. Now all he needs is a good agent and some plastic surgery. Waytogo, Bruno! Just remember, when inquiring about the plastic surgery always ask for an estimate first. You don't want any "hidden" costs such as extra body parts.
When asked about his desire for plastic surgery he was once overheard saying, "I wish I had a twin, so I could know what I'd look like without plastic surgery." On the subject of aging Bruno stated, "I don't plan to grow old gracefully. I plan to have face-lifts until my ears meet."

Achmed The Dead Terrorist

OK, this is a fairly long video but it is well worth the time to view. In the event that you haven't experienced Achmed's performance you're in for a treat. Thanks to our friend Jean in Israel for this one.

PS. If you're at work watching this make sure your boss isn't watching over your shoulder. In case he is you'll know right away because of the laughing. : )

Robot Wars

Robot Wars was a real "guys" TV show! Thanks to Bill McLeese for this one... pretty funny.
