Exchange Of The Day

SUBJECT: What Was Draper’s Hurry?

* Draper’s mysterious "in camera" meeting which presumably had something to do with Councillor Hughes ... has a tendency to challenge credulity. I suspect that this has much less to do with Hughes "supposed misconduct" and much more to do with Draper protecting his turf and building his little empire in St. Albert. Historically, intimidation seems to be the favourite tool of Crouse and Draper when it comes to dealing with women in politics. It will be interesting to see how this plays out when the little secrets eventually escape into the broad sunlight of public scrutiny.

* What did Draper do or not do before he came to St Albert?

* He was a City Manager in Ontario.

How To Terminate Hornets And Wasps

Eradication of black hornet nest using a standard spray nozzle on a garden hose. This technique works great because you can stand within 5 to 10 feet away from the hornet nest and they don't associate you with the destruction of their nest.

UFO Visitors: Alien Astronaut In Ancient Stone Carving

UFO Visitors
The mystery surrounding a stone carving that looks very similar to man in a modern astronaut suit dons the northern entrance to a 300-year-old cathedral in Salamanca, Spain. This construction of this cathedral was started in 1513 and completed a little more than 200 years later in 1733, long before space travel was possible on Earth, according to the Epoch Times on Nov. 14.

The astronaut-like figure is nestled among leaves and is noted to have a look of distress on his face. The astronaut suit depicts what looks like a breathing apparatus, with air tubes leading into the helmet coming out of a box on the chest of the ancient space traveler.
