30% of Snowbirds are still flocking south... WTFlock?
I don't get it... on several levels. I thought we were not encouraged to travel to the USA which is struggling with a pandemic? I understood borders were still closed.
Why would anyyone right now, want to vacation in the USA - have there been more turbulent times? Will they be insured if they catch COVID?
Will we fly them home AGAIN if shit hits the fan at our expense... again?
What if they get sick and bring it back...
I cannot be the only Canadian thinking like this.
I also don't get it as most of these snowbirds are older, vunerable to catching covid.
I read one snowbird was missing "the beach, sun and cheap rum", that said enough.
Sunshine & Alcohol are worth it all? To alcoholics, I guess.
I understand wanting to travel - especially if you own a condo down south and it's just sitting there - go... BUT this time I don't think the goverment should be responsible in anyway for your safe return. It's NOT like the world is not aware of what's going on. IF YOU choose to go down south GO - but don't make other Canadians who choose to try to do what we are told to do, in order to slow a fucking pandemic killing thousands of Canadians & others around the world, pay for your selfishness.
For the sake of a tan & cheap rum is shallow & selfish.
Clearly some don't think the rules apply to them.. and our government can't seem to get it's shit together so no wonder these loons thinks its safe to fly.
Adios snowbirds, Go! May you safely return in your cars and not coffins.

143,311 do you know how mnay times I had to read that number because of disbelief.
Thats how many have died in the USA & rising.
Yet, places continue to open... like Disney world. WTF?
In Canada the number is close to 9,000 deaths.
We do no thave to population the USA does - still.
It is shocking to watch - I don't understand how so few can care, drinking, pool paties.. babies becoming infected in record number in Texas. Arizona is bringing in mobil morgues and its business as usual. The American Government is FUCKED UP - The rest of the world see just how much. Careless behavious when we still know very little about covid- we know it kills. Fighting over masks- political 'leaders' ONLY add to the confusion.
The saddest part is who is dying - those already suffering.
I learned a new word in 2 languages... it is directed at the Political LEADERS & those who refuse to wear masks. The nurses, Dr.s, all who are wearing masks and care about others- yo have my symptahy. A thousand people are dying a day in the USA currently - That can't be true.. can it? And Trump golfs.
Some of my inmate friends think: this is the ends of days (expressed in their letters)
I don't know how to resond sometimes. I know being cooped up is a big difference than being caged up during covid COVID, I can read their concerne.
I share - I don't think it's the end of days.. just an end of being blind - to many issues.
I lose sleep lately over all I think about.. all the people I have met and know NOW, in the USA. I'll do what I can - if only continue prayers- lots.
I had a awakening (amen- thakful)... tomorrow, I'm practicing what I preach.
Teach Only LOVE , that is what WE are.
& made a new sign for the end of our drive way.

I spent the greater part of yesterday staring at my now, open driveway. Wondering what makes some so fucking nasty. Clearly, after several messages and even a couple of calls - I was made aware my neighbour has a reputation for being a bully. Fine by me & thank you Lord.. it makes is all the more understandable for others to witness his actions yesterday as what they were - BULLSHIT. We have someone coming to survey the property, if he has infringed on his rights, he will be contacted & asked to plant new plants. If he is legally correct- so be it- lesson learned - don'tt trust this neighbour, know your rights and continue make others aware of any abuse or bulling in the future. It's that simple. What I won't do is stress about him- he is bringing enough karma on himself if this is his normal behaviour, & has noone to blame but himself.
I can't- yesterday was brutal again, TN wise , nausea & even my gums bled- holy if stress doesnt walk up and say 'PAY FUCKING ATTENTION!' So I did.
I made a psilocybin tea and went to sit in the ZEN HEN DEN with chickens and goats. There, I relaxed, sat.. prayed & was in the NOW, soon I found myself giggling at goats.
I gave them a old cushion from a lounge chair and they thought I gave them a learther sofa! They faught over it & Indica claimed it as his own. He rolled and lay on it for hours.. I didn't have my camera (in the now) but I took some photos once inside from the dining room. Grateful for my goats helping me forget about the ass.
I also had something very funny (imo) I was staring at the driveway and asked God for help, to fogive this guy quickly! I won't live in this Eden with hatred in my heart for anyone (why I don't read about TRUMP - try not to).. and I swear, as I thought that - I watched 5 turkeys walk up to the end of my driveway and read the sign! I laughed out loud and got them on my ipad ( althought very grainy) to show Norm. They turkeys on the other side of the gate stood the 3rd bar tall! They were letting me know they are happy to have me as a new neighbour - as I am them. I don't understand why some are so inconsiderate and nasty.. or perhaps I do. Aren't most bullies - bullied as kids? Hmmmmm.
I certianally did not have it easy as a child, its no excuse to be mean to others.
I did learn a valuable lesson& glad I was calm & wise enough to walk back & get my camera.
Anyhow I have forgiven - but not forgotten. His actions have made me & others aware of who he is. I know who I am too.. A child of God. I was sent several messages - overwhelmed with the positive impact we apparently have made with several. Thank you.
I do have friends in high places, lol... when I say this - I mean Jesus' (Makes me smile :)) I was reminded I really do have 'several friends' in high places, who offered assistance, made suggestions & shared guidance on how to proceed further... that's what makes me stronger. Thank you. It was also a moment where I was grateful for my mother & the strength I have to stand up to bullies.. I giggled- thinking- Intimidate me?
You don't know my mama. Everything makes us stronger & better - if we choose to let it.
Today is a new day! I started a new Monkey - we've got gardening to do and Eden to enjoy & Goats to paint!

What many moms 'now' imagine... instant internet sensations are born daily.
I wonder if chickens feel the same about each egg. Each egg will be a gift.
Each child is a gift. Every day is a gift, have you offered 'thanks' for today?
I am thankful we have created the Zen Hen Den- Norm & Storm had the difficult part.
This is the first week of summer & it's going to be hot!
Bring on the chickens & bring on the heat, I've already made a watermelon, pea, strawberry frozen treat.
The Zen Hen Den chickens - shall lay, daily. Have Faith.
We are here to Thrive.
It's been 9 months I've been here in the forest.. surrounded by only birds & trees (mostly). I THRIVE in solitude. My painting improves, my creativity is constantly inspired when not constantly distracted. Even the internet doesn't hold the same charm it once did.
I am impressed beyond with any & every company that has taken this pandemic seriously & more so EVERY company by closing has indeed shown their employees they care about their health first & foremost. At least until we can ALL figure this out.
The rest staying open is irresponsible- they do not understand they them staying open now- prevents this entire thing to last LONGER. I read. I paint or read or do chores.
My twitch allows for little sleep. I've educated myself on: Pandemic, economy, recession, global depression, flattening the curve.. the death rates doubling, medical system overloads. Italy, Spain & now New York... are taking things very seriously - I think .. I hope.
In approximately two weeks, we will start to see the numbers of deaths according to the experts... the same numbers if not worse that Italy is currently witnessing.. ONLY after everyone took it seriously & stopped going out for fucking drinks' or to the store for things that frankly - don't matter. If you are running out for 'a loaf of bread' & that's all, you are not practicing social distancing. If you are playing cards with neighbours... YOU ARE NOT social distancing and if you returned from a trip & pop into the grocorey store you are not social distancing - you are in fact - breaking the law.
I know several who have admitted this mindset and it is shocking to me...
I never thought they would be so... careless? ...Wreckless or ...Selfish.
Is if fear? Denial or Is it ignorance?
Unless you have a mental handicap- you would have to be pretty darn ignorant to not know this is a serious problem. IT's not just about death- the longer it takes for people to stay in and take it seriously the longer it lingers and effects not just people but the "economy".. it keeps people from visiting business ever again...
So... JUST FUCKING stay home.. Enough already.
I realized how many people I know.. all around the world when, I find my self thinking: I hope Mona & George are o.k.. I hope Ivan and his family are o.k... Candice in the UK, Chuck in the USA, Jerry, Stephen, Patti, Diane, Joshua, Mark, Kevin & everyones family! Friends in the medical field... Jodie, Mike, Madison, Sam.. little Sam.. oh my.. no wonder I want to cry. Mostly I think of Storm.. I tried to be tuff- but the moment I saw him on our most recent FaceTime chat I cried. I tried.
Old People (in particular) don't just die, EVERY AGE is getting very sick, they get very sick & they might have a family member who does die & will not be able to properly mourn...
the stuff you learn when you read.
It's a nasty DEADLY VIRUD that needs to STOP. NOW

Even a monkey can do it- WASH YOUR HANDS. SOAP KILLS.
What an awakening this is.
I don't get the mindset of some - whom, I 'thought' were intelligent...
I saw someone I know post out at a bar on social media- Hooplah! Cheers! It's all a big joke. In particular, I know this person has grandparents - I know the grandparents & I don't want to see them get sick due to some selfish, immature 20 year old who thinks they are immune' - so who give a fuck about others. WTF is wrong with some people. I felt bad for their mom. FEAR or Stupidity. Still... & If you think I am the only one thinking it - think again. I was disappointed to say the least & shut off IG.
This shitty behaviour will ruin careers when this is all over. Wait & see.
Places determined to stay open for March break reak of desperation for that last buck instead of the concern for our extended famalies. People will remember how others behave & the decision a business makes. Another business I purchase from - the owners are planning a big drunk - St. Pattys day party - they share on social media... wow.
I will never do business with that organization again... if this is how they really behave - I am glad to know it... in a crisis where people are getting sick & dying - who are you?
Think no one is watching? BUZZFEED last night had "13 photos of the worse example of humanity, currently" - ALL photos of mindless drunks lining up to celebrate St. Patty's in a crowded public bars.. wow. Try not to judge, it's difficult.
I have a friend I'm very worried about in the city.. her health not good, I can imagine her thoughts at this wrecklessness attitude. Is it becaue only the old are dying?
WAKE the fuck up - WE all get old and if not now - I guarentee your time is coming.. lol
one might want to anticipate the furture a wee bit... it has a tendacy to be repeated.
This won't be the last pandemic.
I looked further into people in prison - if you know any - now is the time to say "hello!!"
It is not good- a prison is not designed for this - the opposite actually. In NY they are considering releasing inmates over 60 - for fear- keeping them in prison is a death sentence with this Corona virus. & Some don't have soap. In NewYork the prisoners are actually making the hand sanatizer - they are not permitted to use - it's illegal. That's fucked up.
If they get sick the reality is - someone who gets sich NOT in jail will get preference over someone in jail. NOT everyone is in jail for murder or serious harmful crimes- some only stupid stuff... & the anxiety levels in jail will be at an all time high, with less communication & little to NO interaction from the outside.
Be thankful you have not chosen a life of crime. Talk of forced lowering the phone bills (extortion at it's finest - I know it cost me more to speak to my brother in jail for 10 minutes - than 2 hours in Norway) is one suggestion - but it's just talk.. things need to be addressed now. I don't think that's going to happen. Im thinking of so many my head hurts.
Stress, even here in our Eden is creeping in. Please wash your hands & say your prayers.
Clearly we can not rely on ALL other humans to lead by example - but you can... lead by example.
I'm going to try to make some lovely art to distract, educate.. posible make someone smile. That's the plan.
It’s just a phase.. BE here NOW.
Sure keep one eye open and one ear listening… but buying all Costco’s toilet paper will NOT
diminish your worries. It’s just a phase - this too shall pass.
What a lesson we all needed.
What are you teaching?
Are you teaching with your thoughtless posts on social media - “I don’t need to stock up on Lysol - I stocked up on Amo” - I thought, Yep. You are not the 1st person I’d want around in a crisis. Making fun of others deaths and name calling is not a good start. That’s where we are at the start, imo.
Are you still thinking profits over people and planning March break events?
Are you hoarding toilet paper? I understand, all of it. Fear of money not coming in for a few weeks.. is a very real problem - with a house full of kinds who will not be back in school for 3 weeks - I understand hoarding. What a wonderful time to re-introduce ‘basic chores’ to kids.
Keep them busy & teach good habits & help keep “this under control”, it should not be all on MOMs to keep the house clean- seems like everyone is forced to spend time at home- THROW a party- a house cleaning party.
See it as a lesson in perhaps rationing - and explain it’s in fact how MILLIONS of immigrants lived all the time all around the world & why they choose if possible to move to a better circumstance - one with HOPE.
For many March Break would be one of the busiest events of the year & guaranteed money makers.. it’s just not worth it. EVEN if “kids don’t die from it.. chances are they have grandparents. I wonder if business think of how negative it would be to be associated with being the first case in Halliburton from ‘such and such’ a place.. Halliburton is a retirement community in many cases, with many who are vulnerable to the Corona Virus. It’s nothing to sneeze at. It’s just not worth it. Think of other HUMANS first. NOW.
I get hoarding ‘bumwipe’ … (other countries BTW have easily mastered using & washing their hands since the beginning of time.) if it makes you feel safer - what’s the big deal. None.
Have fun. BUTT Those who hoard on medical supplies to profit from other misery - you will reap what you sow. I hope. It’s not being a savvy business person - it’s being a parasite - hoping to prosper off of others misery during a terrible time. What lessons are you learning - & teaching?
WE have enough to carry us through a few weeks IF we are not our usual glutton selves & 'eat it just because it’s there.' I’ll at least wait until I’m truly hungry & WASTE nothing. Who knows when I’ll see a fresh papaya again - it could be weeks or more.
We use too much toilet paper - have for decades- it’s a problem... perhaps someone will think of a better option during all this. Inventions will be created! Cures discovered! Toronto Dr.s are all ready on it making world news! Amen.
From what I understand, for some it comes on very fast & is deadly…
I read we’ve turned a “Terrible Milestone” due to the number of deaths.. that # of which, no one is just sure of the exact numbers.
3 was 2, too many.
Stay home - it’s just a phase.. teach or learn a new hobby - Youtube is germ free. ;)
Many of us have upsidedown thinking... including me.
In the past anyway.. currently, I believe I've finally flipped it around.
Commonly, loving others we often forget to love ourself.
Always striving to please... who? WHY?
Working hard for... what? Who? Why?
Please show yourself some love and answer these questions honestly.
If the number one person is not you - you have upsidedown thinking. I think.
When we do not put ourselves first with selfcare and selflove, we become tired, drained and occasionally even resentful and we really have no one to blame but ourselves.
Get rid of what you do not want & keep what you do.
I love me! How? With good food, fresh fruit, rest, play, painting, pups, cannabis, good books, educational movies, life changing documentaries, chilling with music, watching the birds... much makes 'me happy' and feel wonderful = wanting to spread joy to those I love... after me. Self Love creates more love for others.
Go show yourself some love. Right side up.
With THC & TLC.
Weeeee! Thank you Canada! Our first year of Legalization and we did not end up looking like a bunch of Loons! Heeheehee I knew we wouldn't.
We proved if anything, to the rest of the world - not only is legalization working but it was 'Highly successful' it's first year - and Not one overdose - let's all breath a sigh of relief & put reefer madness to rest. It was Norm that reminded me - "it's a year!" - because I have been legal for years, I kinda forgot. Thank God. Thank God we are NOT stressing anymore over such bullshit, now we can all focus on Politics' a little better - ready to vote? I am.
I'm going to show up braless with a 'I love Justin T!' hahahhahaa (just the thought has me giggling) I vote at a local restaurant & I've no doubts, I'll be surrounded by several Consertatives. hee hee I don't trust 'conservatives and cannabis'... I wonder why.
I don't trust consertatives & pipelines.
Still hearing stories (more now come out of the Cannabis closet now that it's Safe'r) of when they were younger and was busted for growing a plant. What took so long for this madness to end? Some are still being busted... & as always there's usually a little more to it. I hope all who have been charged in the past look into having prior charges cleared, take the time while it's available - who knows what the future holds.
Yes, it is a reason to celebrate! Canada has profited & shall continue to thrive - now with edibles once it's all sorted out. I do make my own edibles.. but when edibles are easier to purchase - say at a bakery (in a special *adult glass counter) I'll buy more edibles. I do not like to purchase stuff that I can't touch, see or smell. People have expressed & continue to do so by visiting dispensaries and NOT via the gov and mail to show - they want to SEE, smell the bud & the experience. I think the government will soon agree & the only way for them to make the money they anticipate is to let a wider distribution & tax it all. Just as convenience stores sell beer & cigarettes - let delicious bakerys or gourmet food shops sell delictable snacks.
...When Pigs fly!
I've heard that before.
I am currently mid canvas' so, I did not spend as much time as I might have otherwise on this anniversary - next year! Next my witchy crystal ball will tell you who will win the election!
