Someday Not Soon

Hello my little bloggo people! Well tonight in New Minas i ran into some of the Tower guys at Dairy Queen, kids that were in their first year when i was finishing up and i recieved some depressing news, i guess that Tower is being phased out and is not part of any real rebuilding plans, after all it is an old building ... i guess there is nobody on second floor (Which we used to call the stabilizer my first year...long story) and some floors do not even have RA's and they didn't have that much in the way of frosh, something like 45 frosh. None of my business and yes this is my third year not living there, but i still feel a fondness for the old place i guess...some habits die hard, somedays even I don’t know why anything is the way it is.
Recieved my first batch of material from the University of Maine at Farmington, not a bad looking place, however it is not exactly the kind of education program that i was after, what they offer is a four year education program that readies students to be teachers, it is a general BA degree..now we could probably look at doing some of the same ol tricks like sending marks and seeing what classes they will take, for example Mount Allison took 60 of my 120 credits, actually they messed up and took 66 of my 120 credits, meaning if i would have stayed for two years there i would have had to get 54 credits, actually i was on my way by gaining 24 of those credits, but there was too much Vader for me there...if he had switched places with one or two of the GOOD professors i had at Acadia and i had gotten myself a decent part time job there last year, then the answer is yes, i would have definitly stayed another year at Harper, however there is no use droning on spilled milk, what is done is done...past is past and now i must look forward to what is coming down the line....more appropriately, next year.
My nephew's first week at Middleton school is past and he really likes it here, as a matter of fact he has joined boxing and is taking lessons...now he will be remembering our scraps and be kicking me arse all over the house. I would so go to the New York Islanders exhibition blue Vs white game this weekend in Yarmouth at the Mariner Centre, but i have to work and i was lucky enough to get next Friday off so that i could take my nephew to see Mainstream Wrestling next weekend at the famous Berwick Arena! I told him that we have to go for supper at the Driftwood Restaurant before the matches, always a ritual ...or well it used to be...me and my ol buddy Jim used to love going there and eating, awesome fish and chips.. plus the Honkytonk Man is coming!!! Hope he brings his gutair and plays some of Honky's Greatest Hits. I brought home the remake of The Longest Yard on DVD today for me and Dad, it was pretty humorous, thought it was classy having Burt Reynolds back and for sticking somewhat close to the original classic.. There was a guy in the store the other night and i was going through posters to put up in the store and i saw one of Adolf Hitler for some new movie made about the war and i stated i wasn't going to hang that one up and he said, "Why not?" and i added that if i had hung that up at home, my old man would have murdered me! And he stated that it would make no difference if it was hung up at his house...wow... i know it has been some 60 plus years since the war, but man i still think some things are taboo! And for those who cannot remember here is a mini bio i found on the web:

HITLER, leader of the German Nazi party and, from 1933 until his death, dictator of Germany. He rose from the bottom of society to conquer first Germany and then most of Europe. Riding on a wave of European fascism after World War I and favored by traditional defects in German society, especially its lack of cohesion, he built a Fascist regime unparalleled for barbarism and terror. His rule resulted in the destruction of the German nation-state and its society, in the ruin of much of Europe's traditional structure, and in the extermination of about 6 million Jews. He was eventually defeated, but his temporary success demonstrated frighteningly, at the brink of the atomic age, the vulnerability of civilization. On June 6, 1944, the Allies invaded France; later, the Russians broke through in the east, forcing Hitler to move his headquarters to Berlin. He showed increasing signs of physical and mental disintegration, intensified by an illness that had not been properly treated by his physician, a quack doctor, upon whom Hitler had become dependent for injections. With the Allies crossing the Rhine River and the Russians closing in on Berlin, he at last acknowledged defeat and decided to commit suicide; but he wanted Germany to follow suit. Germany, he argued, had proved itself unworthy of his genius and had failed to prevail in the struggle for life. With the Russians rapidly approaching his bunker in Berlin, Hitler and Eva Braun, whom he now married, committed suicide on April 30, 1945.

Ok, i am sure you can find a better bio than that on the web...oh and my nephew asked me a question that i am asked alot.

What is Sociology?

Sociology is the scientific study of human social behavior. As the study of humans in their collective aspect, sociology is concerned with all group activities–economic, social, political, and religious. Sociologists study such areas as bureaucracy, community, deviant behavior, family, public opinion, social change, social mobility, social stratification, and such specific problems as crime, divorce, child abuse, and substance addiction. Sociology tries to determine the laws governing human behavior in social contexts; it is sometimes distinguished as a general social science from the special social sciences, such as economics and political science, which confine themselves to a selected group of social facts or relations.

I hope that makes some kind of sense

Anyways i must go play some more NHL 2005 for the Gamecube (We just got NHL 2006 in at work...looks good, must play this weekend!) And then it is bed and tomorrow is payday!!! Me and the girls from work were talking about going to the Top Hat in G-Wood or doing something sometime... but for now, i have to work all weekend, i may be in Kentville Sat night at a Windsor Royals game at the Kentville Arena, but folks for right now in the meantime and in between time...have a good one!
