SUBJECT: Arts Supporters ‘Whining Penniless Beggars’

This! Totally agree.

* How very sad.  
Perhaps if the community were more involved, there'd be more pride in where they live.  The spin-off might be less graffiti, fewer petty crimes and an open forum for budding artists.


* Great idea!  But then this city doesn't seem content in having citizen contributions at any level, in any form, unless council has complete control over it.  Nope.  It's no longer a city of the people.


* I have gone to council to address the extravagant issue of spending on art. I suggested that council go to the community.....ie. high schools ......to get some wonderful art produced locally. They looked at me with that "huh" look! And continued to wildly spend tax dollars.


* The cost of public art just isn't going away.  Jared Milne's commentary in the Gazette (Sept. 10, 2014) summarized the issues succinctly.  I found his conclusion interesting in that it is becoming more obvious that St. Albert consists of two separate classes.  And to think that this was once a family community where people mattered.

Hypnotist At A Seniors Home

Hypnotist At A Seniors Home
It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens' Centre. After the community sing-along led by Alice at the piano, it was time for the star of the show - Claude the Hypnotist!

Claude explained that he was going to put the whole audience into a trance. "Yes, each and every one of you and all at the same time," said Claude.

The excited chatter dropped to silence as Claude carefully withdrew, from his waistcoat pocket, a beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain.

"I want you to keep your eyes on this watch" said Claude, holding the watch high for all to see. "It's a very special and valuable watch that has been in my family for six generations," said Claude.

He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch --- watch the watch ---- watch the watch”. The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth. The lights were twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.

A hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently swaying watch. They were all hypnotized.

And then, suddenly, the chain broke! The beautiful watch fell to the stage and burst apart on impact.

"SHIT," shouted Claude.

It took them three days to completely clean up the Senior Citizens' Centre and Claude was never invited back again.

Should You Put Butter in Your Coffee?

Should You
I don’t know precisely when I first heard about putting butter in coffee. It’s a practice that’s fluttered around the edge of my consciousness for several months at least, its connotations vaguely Atkins-y, vaguely hippie-ish, vaguely hedonistic. It didn’t seem unappealing, necessarily—butter is delicious, and coffee is necessary, so why not?—but I was pretty happy with my normal routine of dosing my coffee with a splash of milk.

Then, a couple of weeks ago, a colleague sent an email to Slate’s staff with the subject line, “people are putting butter in coffee?”

Full story on Slate.
