Canadian GoFundMe Raises $6B In Two Hours To Pay For Privacy Hedge Along Entire US Border

The Out And Abouter

hedgery An “artist’s” rendition of the “privacy hedge”.

In a stunning rebuke of the 46th best president in American history, the United States’ northern neighbour shattered numerous crowdsourcing records today, when it raised billions and billions and billions of dollars to plant and maintain a living barrier between themselves and the adjacent idiocracy. 

“We’d heard that a bunch of people down in the You-Ess-of-Eh had decided to empty their wallets out for a wall that won’t block anything other than half of all escape routes, when their dirty bomb of a president melts through his retaining barrier,” explains the man who started the campaign, Tom Candy, of Fewmarket, Ontario.

“So naturally our first thought was: how can we best deal with this shitshow as it unfolds directly beside us, and add a little ever-greenery to a world which, it has to be said, is looking a little bleak right now? The…

To Conquer Pride – Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

From Pemberley to Milton

To Conquer Pride immediately caught my attention because it starts with one of my favorite scenarios in Pride and Prejudice Variations: Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth stranded in a cottage.

Apart from all those scenarios that we can find in the book, and that make it very diverse and appealing, we have above all a lot of Darcy and Elizabeth moments. Propriety is always followed, or…almost always followed, but the point is that there are few pages in the…

When One Door Opens, Another One Hits You In The Tush

We’ve all heard the expression: when one door closes, another one opens. And while it’s easier to focus on the open door, the one that represents what’s new, unexpected, fresh, and possible, it’s not always wise to ignore the door we had to close to move forward.

hardcovermdl_2550x3300I’m a fan of fresh starts. I’ve had more than one and by the time I shuffle off this mortal coil, I expect I’ll have racked up a few more. There is something exciting about creating—or recreating—our futures, like clay animals from a fresh container of Play-Doh. But if we’re not careful and we ignore the reasons that led up to that fresh start, we might rush the process and not fully…
