Thanks for being so down to earth B.W. I needed that from you. I am sorry you did not win your election but as you say, no politician can keep his promises.
. They are just marionettes.
My wife is a social worker as well, she works mainly with severe and not so severe disabled persons. A lot of them are abused by the system and by their own relatives. Sad.

I think nuts have been there for a long time...
Last weekend Koko and I rented a cottage beside a beautifull lake, about 65 miles from center town of Quebec city. Sunday afternoon at 1h00 we decided to go to the village near by to get some wine and groceries. The sky was beautifull, light blue with very few clouds. As usual I carried my reflex camera (I always do).
We were driving the 8 miles unpaved road surrounded by trees when we saw a jet in the sky leaving a trail behind. It was beautifull. Later on, few miles ahead, the trees where now behind and we realized that many planes where and had been in the sky. We stopped and got out of the car. We counted the plane trails and there was 13 of them all started and going in the same direction: Quebec city. I started to take pictures. It was 1h12. There was a plane every 5 to 10 minutes appearing in the sky always closer to us but always very high in the blue sky. The white trails stayed in the sky for 1hour to 1 hour and a half. Until 4h15 we couted and photographed 37 planes that covered the sky from one horizon to the other.
One quiet sunday afternoon, when most people do not work here in La Belle Province, and we have a sky full of planes leaving probably normal humidity produced from plane (plain) gas?
Just to share our experience.
