The Waste Of Trees On The Trail

This was the scene yesterday as a city crew held up one lane of traffic on the Trail while they watered trees in the rain. A horrific waste of tax dollars. If they had left concrete, it would have lasted a quarter century without any maintenance and zero cost. Now it is an ongoing and costly 'make work project'. As if St. Albert doesn't have enough trees. The folly of Trail beautification is almost overwhelming.

Points To Ponder

When a person dies, hearing is the last sense to go. The first sense lost is sight.

In ancient times strangers shook hands to show that they were unarmed.

Strawberries are the only fruits whose seeds grow on the outside.

Smarter Ways To Wear Flip-Flops

Smarter Ways
Whether classic navy or hot pink and bejeweled, flip-flops are the most fun shoe, period. But wearing them all day, every day may lead to trips and falls — possibly landing you in the ER. Last year alone, of nearly 200,000 shoe-related injuries, more than 25,000 could be traced back to flip-flops, according the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s report on emergency room visits.

“You can twist, sprain or roll your ankle in flip-flops,” says Marlene Reid, DPM, a podiatrist in Chicago and a spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). And wearing them when you need a shoe with support could set you up for muscular strain and tendon and muscle fatigue.
