What's In the Toronto Star Water?

What’s In the Toronto Star Water?

John D. Cruickshank, Publisher, give TorStar water boy a raise
Some NEW Truth Telling is in the #TorontoStar Water!

Usually, i do not read newspapers
Most  "breaking news" is "retreaded old news"

However, one of my favourite silver dealers
Jimmy from HongKong gave me 
a free Saturday Toronto Star
because his "Star Dealer" had given him two

So I took it and being a man of God
read first, you guessed it, the Sports Section

Consider my unexpected pleasure
Reading DamienCox of @DamoSpin lead story
on the Habs win brought out all the old clich├ęs

Wherein he, the self-confessed "Damo Spinner"
Spins the tale that 1 Habswin in 4 playoff games
Does not mean it brought out their character



He and all other Hab fans may be interested
in God’s opinion on character, #GodSays

Exult in your sufferings
because you know that suffering works endurance
Endurance brings out character and character brings hope
Which hope so earned does not disappoint you

So given the beloved Montreal Canadian Habs
Beat Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday night on Hockey Night In Canada
It appears HabsHope is alive - Only 2 wins to go!



The Habs must have had the same
tell-the-truth secret ingredient in their water as the Toronto Star

Consider my further pleasant surprise with the Star’s "story-spinner" reporters
when I next turned to, you guessed it? 
The Opinion Page Cartoon

Usually the truest thing in the Star!
This time by Patrick Corrigan 
on Canada freeing Omar Khadr
and the Conservative Panic Room 
Close the#@!*@!! Door" Caption


Consider my continued surprise when reading

Susan Delacourt of  @SusanDelacourt story on
Ground Shifts, from Edmonton to Edinburgh
Ground shifts can also be called earthquakes!

Anyway, Susan agrees with the Star's Tim Harper
that selling hope and uniting the progressive left
may be a new undertow in world politics

So watch out Just-in Trudeau or PM Harper
Here comes Elizabeth May of the GreenParty!



I like Elizabeths - Including the British Queen 
my 96 year old Mom Elizabeth
and Elizabeth May - Anyone who can be happy
being ignored by the "BIG Boys" in Parliament
and endure - must be building character + hope!

Now to end my little story on
What’s In the Toronto Star Water?

The Jim Coyle Advice Story to
Vivacious New Alberta Premiere Rachel Notley



Jim has 12 fairly good points for Rachel's NDPs 

How to #SurviveWithPower - God’s Way


 1 Check out your caucus 
2 Watch your friends
3 Review your campaign platform 
See what you can deliver
4 Enthusiasm is no substitute for expertise
5 Don’t assume previous advocacy 
equips one for cabinet
6 Promise a new attitude and approach
7 Hire staff for ability not partisan fervour
8 Get rid of your Siege Mentality
As far as possible - Be decent with the media
God suggests you love your family, friends and enemies
9 Get to know your faithful civil servants
10 Don’t quote Edwin Burke 
But suggest your caucus reads him
God suggests strongly that you daily
Read his Handbook on Survival - the Bible!
11 Know that somewhere in your party 
Someone is taking notes and 
negotiating with a publisher!
Perhaps even John D. Cruickshank of #TorStar
12 Believe that you will never be 
as inept as JimPrentice

There you have it my family, friends
social media tweeters and enemies
Something NEW is in the Toronto Star Water!


Perhaps it is the tell-the-truth secret ingredient water from Niagara Falls!

Maybe Prime Minister Harper 
and "want-to-be-PM" Justin Trudeau
should also start to drink from the tell-the-truth 
free flowing Niagara Falls water

Helping the Devastated Ones

Dear Readers + Followers of God
Helping the Devastated Ones below you’ll read a short public letter i sent to Doug Saunders, a young reporter for Canada’s Globe and Mail. His Article in the April 28, 2015 Globe and its social media Proposed 5 Rules of Disaster Charity Based on his personal experiences during the 2004 Sri Lanka Tsunami Disaster
My Public Letter to Doug Saunders follows
Doug, your possible 5 Disaster Help Rules may work. They’re based on your 10 year-old experiences in the 2004 Sri Lanka Tsunami Disaster! Wherein you first-hand observed life but did NOT LIVE the DEVASTATED LIFE which the millions of devastated ones did!
Lived not only during the moment of disaster but for years afterwards!
You came! You saw! You wrote! And you went home to your O Canada Comfort Zone!
Basically Your 5 Disaster Rules Are
1 Do not proselytize
2 Give to the BIG charities e.g. UNICEF High Commission for Refugees – Red Cross/Red Crescent They can handle the BIG DISASTERS better Beware of Celebrity and Business People Vanity Charities
3 Don’t go there
4 Don’t send stuff
5 Give but don’t be specific

A Life-Changing thought for you Doug Saunders to bless the Nepal DEVASTATED ONES!
Ask your Globe and Mail boss to send you to Nepal right NOW! To let you stay there for the next 6 months to live in one of the worst devastated areas, perhaps Bhaktapur. Ask the devastated ones – What they NEED right NOW and later?
File a Devastated Nepal epiCentre BLOG
Let the devastated ones tell their story and WHAT they NEED right NOW and later
Act as a Communication Clearing Centre
for interested hands-on helpers for the next six months via your Devastated Nepal epiCentre Blog. Then, when you come back to safe and mostly serene O Canada after six months in Nepal, write a Life-Changing Book based on your experiences living with the devastated ones. Ask your Globe and Mail boss to let you serialize your Life-Changing Book in the Globe. The title of your book, A Globe Reporter’s Experience + Strength + Hope To help the Devastated Ones in Nepal
We at #Ourplace are praying for you and the devastated ones! If you and your boss at the Globe agree and you GO to Nepal for the next six months.We’ll gladly make a monetary contribution for your expenses and your book hendrickusOfOurplace
