Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

Luminous Cheers - And Jeers As Well



First and foremost, I must assure thee
that the present has nothing to do with
"Cheers" -
the famous American sitcom
based in a bar, in Boston
although, now that I mention it,
I can't help to think
nor refrain from mentioning
that the lovely bunch of losers
that made up that show's cast
would surely enjoy it immensely
right now,
if they actually were
in Boston!
Red Sox, World Series champions
Celtics, best record in the NBA
Patriots, near perfect
Bruins, up-and-coming team
Cannons, Revolution & more -
the town is abuzz with
top contenders!

But I am digressing...

Even though Boston deserves cheers too
I had other nominees in mind
coming on here...

CHEERS to José Mourinho -
Portuguese futebol coach
(soccer for the rest of you)
who got a VERY lucrative contract
to coach a prestigious club in Italy
(albeit one unable to relive
its glorious past so far -
and for the past 40+ years...!
Betcha that will *all* change
with the new coach!)

CHEERS to the mayor of SAGUENAY,
Jean Tremblay,
for sticking to his guns
and saying prayer before each assembly
even though so many don't want to hear it!
Even the damnable
"charte des droits et libertés
de la personne"
peeps
want to shut him up.
How is it defending
LIBERTY
and God-given
FREEDOM RIGHTS
to try and deprive
one of the few
still to be worthy
of the name
"Faithful"
of his sacrosanct
RIGHT
to invoke GOD
for additional
guidance
and illumination
during his working hours?
MORE MAYORS,
GOVERNORS,
PRESIDENTS
AND SOVEREIGN RULERS
SHOULD DO JUST THAT!
Then, maybe,
depending on their
sincerity,
our world
would be
a better world...

JEERS though to the very same region
of Saguenay -
in the St-Ambroise district,
for, the moment that
one or two bears peek their noses
out of the bushes,
"L'ALERTE EST LANCÉE!"
Gee, don't local cable providers
or satellite dish services
bring you repeats
of Grizzly Adams movies?
The bears may not be
teddy bears -
they are wild animals
and caution is the norm
when dealing with wildlife
but it is obvious
that they are only one thing:
HUNGRY!
FEED THEM!
FEED THE BEARS
instead of throwing so much away
as you usually do
THROW IT AT THEM
AND THERE WILL BE
NO PROBLEMS!
It is true that
there was ONE recent
bear mauling
in another part
of the province -
but if you do as I say
it shouldn't happen again.
Everybody's territorial
so can bears be.
Mostly though,
bears are hungry
THROW THEM FOOD!
NOW!
Don't make
*ME*
give you a bear hug
to drive the message across
and all the way home -
OKAY?

One or two bears sighted
and it's like
THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING
or maybe
MARS ATTACKS,
"version nounours"
Well, it inspired me THIS:



In the immortal words
of one Sammy Davis Jr
"Let's move on...!"

CHEERS *and* JEERS to
General Motors!

On this day, they announced the closing
of no less than four factories
and that they would not be making
the most polluting cars
they are actually renowned for!
Alas, they quit making these cars
truly due to low or downright
INEXISTENT sales
and not due to any "change"
in company policy and attitude.
They simply cease production
of those models
that they will likely see
NO DEMAND for
anymore!
It is NOT an "ECO-MOVE"
more like a sound business move
mostly based upon the rising cost
of GAS - nothing more.
Nothing more admirable
than that...!
Plus, they care not
if so bold and abrupt a move
affects over 2000 employees...
If they had done it RIGHT
(done it THE LUMINOUS WAY)
they would have prepared for a bold move
of a very different kind this year
by preparing for it LAST year!
Changing the company's vocation
in building a new breed of cars
that consumes less gas
and more alternate energy sources.
They would have taken most of 2007
to prepare for that
instead of blinding themselves
to what THEY COULD see coming:
recession and high gas prices
that will continue to climb...
The employees would stick around
not lose their job
merely need to ADAPT
and get training
in order to build a very
DIFFERENT CAR
from now on -
no longer any of those
horrible HUMMERs
IF MY LUMINOUS SCENARIO
had been applied to a "T"...
I bet many G.M. employees
wish I had been their boss
instead of the bozo they have!
Okay - maybe bozo is too harsh
not to mention offensive
for the famous Bozo The Clown!
How about "the dinosaur"
who refused to change
with the times -
à la Dubya!
Yeah
it fits better!

FINALLY
I'd like to give CHEERS also
to the very L.O.V.s here ~
my Luminous Online Visitors
who have been patient
with my very infrequent
updates of the first site
in the TLB PRIME NETWORK!
Said L.O.V.s include
new fans from Twitter most notably
as well as the faithful readers
from the very beginning!
I hope you were all
informed
entertained
and
enlightened
by the preceding!
:)

I'll try to update the MAIN BLOG
more often from now on!
GOD WILLING
time & health willing too!


Blessings!

As if on cue, news keep pouring out from the SAGUENAY region now...

The latest though keeps the decline going - and we had started so well with the tenacious Jean Tremblay...!

From there, we got some unbearable anti-ursine hatemongering...

And now, the latest news item I caught coming from Saguenay has it that a Saguenay SCHOOL BUS DRIVER "abused" some kids who ride the bus...


Forget about regulating security measures to keep kids safe from bullies on school buses, Michéle Courchesne (the Education Minister over there...) - install some measures to keep children safe from creeps ever getting the cushy job of driving them around...!


They can fend for themselves against bullies - up against the worst possible candidates for the job, that YOUR people hired, they can't quite fend off their attacks so well...



 

Next up, I suppose, they'll talk of a monster being sighted in the SAGUENAY LAC ST-JEAN...


Here's hoping they'll come up with a better name than "Ogopogo" this time...


Something more marketable - to give Vermont's Lake Champlain's own "Champ" a run for his toursit season money!
