Cute !

My Nova Scotia Neighborhood

What do you like most about your job?

"Gee, I like it a lot about it.
I love the atmosphere, especially when there's music, and it's busy."


We had no dinner reservations and were seated immediately.
Everything was rated excellent to good, in respect to the restaurant. the decor,the lighting, and the cleanliness. Our candle was lit with out asking, which we liked.
The server was good to excellent. Comments we made were that she was very friendly, and attentive. The water with lemon arrived without asking, came in a second. She came back a few times, she offered water refills many times ....  she was amazing. Very energetic, and friendly. A real asset. She did not offer coffee refills however. We enjoyed her a great deal.
We ordered martinis at 5:05 and were served in minutes. We ordered at 5:10, the appetizer came at 5:20, and dinner came at 5:33pm.
There is plenty on the menu, and the food came quickly ( almost too quick one commented), and was hot.
The restaurant was busy, music started at 6, and it was all a bit loud, and hard to hear conversation.
So what did we have ?
We shared 15 chicken wings for $5.99. We all agreed they were the best. Cooked well, tender, and crispy.

  1. beer battered fish and fries
  2. pan fried haddock and scallops, spinach salad
  3. Fish cakes
  4. steak and greek salad
  5. baked fish and greek salad

We had salted caramel cake and chocolate pate for dessert. It was all okay. The cake, while pretty, was so-so, and some felt the pate was too strong coco tasting.
All the dinners were good, but the fish was reported as likely not fresh fish, maybe a frozen product.
The fish cakes, although moist on the inside, were almost burned.

" I am perfectly fine with having grown up with only sisters.
If I had grown up with a brother(s), I would likely be less ....  hmm ...  let me think of a word.
Less sensitive probably"

Idling ?

Idling for more than 10 seconds wastes more fuel than it would take to restart your car.

My Nova Scotia Neighborhood

Wow, you are 95 ! Can I take your picture?
"Sure. What are you going to do with it? Put it on Facebook?"
Actually, I have a blog, like a diary, on the internet. I am writing about Nova Scotia residents, and I'd like to include you in it.
"Ok, that sounds pretty important".
So most of the residents seem to be napping this afternoon. Do you nap?
" Oh gosh no ! I never nap ! I mean I did once, I think, when the kids were small and they had been sick. I laid down one afternoon.
Maybe when you are old, you'll nap.
"Ha ha ! I am old now !"

The middle aged penis

So vaginas get drier, thinner, and the labia may have slacker skin as we women age.
Let's see about the male over 40 package....

  • Starting around the age of 40, the testicles definitely start to shrink
  • The head of the penis loses it's purplish colour, due to less blood flow
  • The pubic hair becomes more and more scarce as the testosterone level falls.
  • The penis becomes less sensitive as you get older. Making arousal time longer, and orgasms slower to attain.
  • There is a reduction, in length and thickness, that is natural and irreversible. It is not dramatic, but could be noticeable.
Have a great day to all the male readers out there !

My Nova Scotia Neighborhood.
Featuring random people from our beautiful province.
We are, after all, just one big friendly neighborhood.
My dream is that all who are born here, or choose to live here, feel the love, and camaraderie of Nova Scotia.
That Nova Scotians prosper, remember our ancestors, and live in peace.

" Why am I always here, on the golf course?
I love it.
I just simply love it.
And I  like it even more when I hit great shots".

"Ya, it's been too,too cold.
Those tags on their ears?
Well the yellow are for identification, and the green ones are to keep flies and stuff away.
Oh they are friendly !
They'd come right to your truck window and try to lick your face!"

My Girl Bill .... Jim Stafford

Bill walked me to my door last night
And he said, 'Before I go
There's something about our love affair
That I have a right to know
I said, "Let's not stand out here like this
What would the neighbors think
Why don't we just...step inside
And I'll fix us both a drink"
My girl, Bill......

Listen to it here !

Bicycle helmets do expire.

There is a manufacture date inside the bicycle helmet. If it's more than 5 years ago, you should replace your helmet.
The five-year replacement recommendation is based on a consensus by both helmet manufacturers and the Snell Foundation. Glues, resins and other materials used in helmet production can affect liner materials. Hair oils, body fluids and cosmetics, as well as normal "wear and tear" all contribute to helmet degradation. Additionally,  there will be a noticeable improvement in the protective characteristic of helmets over a five-year period due to advances in materials, designs, production methods and the standards.

Airbags for cyclists

Airbags, worn around the neck, versus the helmet.

You'll be thinking twice when you get settled into your next hotel room.
