When consciousness prevails

“As the son of a Liberal premier, I could be in the mix, I could be running a Liberal MP’s campaign. But I can’t. I’m sorry, I don’t want to be rich, nor powerful, at the expense of others. That’s not my business. I don’t claim to be a good person. But I’m trying to be, and that’s more than I can say for many modern Liberal Party MPs.

Their lack of substantive leadership has caused the Liberal Party to lose its way. The commitment to small-l liberal values has collapsed under the weight of party greed and infighting.”

One cannot but admire a young man’s consciousness when he chooses to go the hard way, instead of the easy one. There is more to life than money. Much more.

Woodheater glass cleaning

The glass of woodheater was very very dirty. I cleaned it using wet pieces of paper dipped in the wood ash I had taken out of the woodheater. How does this work so well? Wood ash is alkaline so it acts like soap on the glass with just enough abrasion to get into the thicker layers on the glass. After about 15 minutes that glass looked like new. Zero dollars spent.
