ludwig_van_beethoven_in_morse_codeTUSCALOOSA | While most "snap polls" seem to suggest that Democratic president nominee Sen. Barack Obama "won" his debate with Republican counterpart Sen. John McCain last night, all the buzz is about why McCain refused to make eye contact with Obama.Was he being condescending? Was he afraid his legendary temper would get the better of him if he looked at Obama as he was telling him he was wrong, wrong, wrong about the war in Iraq? Was he just afraid of looking into Obama's cool, black eyes? I even saw a on a post on a website this morning from a guy who studies monkeys who said that in primate hierarchy, moneys of lower status never make eye contact with their superiors.

However, but my instructions were to paint those clapboards and as a dutiful husband (an oxymoron there, eh?) I was out there to help the family unit. Also to keep my present state of health.“I’m getting dizzy,” I said. “The world is spinning around. I must be having a sinus attack. You’re all blurry.”“Here,&#82​21; she said out the window, waving something at me. I couldn’t tell what it was but I could hear the sneer in her voice. I took off my glasses to see (does this make sense?) what it was she so vigorously wanted me to see.“These are your glasses. You’re wearing your reading glasses. No wonder the world i...

Morse%2520CodeNiagara Falls - W.  St. Catharines - St.  St.  St. Thomas - St.  A pair of campers practising Morse code caused some excitement on the north shore of Lake Huron on the weekend. The Espanola OPP said they got a call Sunday night from a cottager on the North Channel who reported seeing S. O.
