So another successful groundhog day comes to a close.  Well, I guess that depends where you live.  If it was cloudy in your neighborhood winter is almost done, and if it was sunny you’ve got six more weeks of prime snowshoeing to deal with.  Which makes no sense whatsoever cause it was sunny where I was working today and supposively cloudy in some of the other places within a one hour drive.  Hmm…  Do you suppose the pioneer who came up with this crazy form of weather prediction was a little too friendly with the whiskey puncheon?

Not to mention groundhogs hibernate and wouldn’t come out in the winter for love nor money. But that’s all about to change.  Come this time next year it shouldn’t be any trouble to find a groundhog out and about in the snow once hydro fracking starts.  I estimate when some well casings crack and the fracking fluid goes awry underground, there’ll be so many critters blasted out of their holes, the sky will be thick with ’em.  Just imagine taking a scenic Sunday drive and seeing Wiarton Willie flying through the air like a sparrow courtesy of a blast of frack fluid in the arse…

I know I go on and on about this subject but it irks me to no end.  This practice has been banned from a lot of places, (fracking, not sure about the flying rodents) and it’s not wanted in New Brunswick by at least some of the population.  It’s a big issue.  So why not have a vote on it?  A referendum?   The gashole David Alward didn’t mind ballots being cast when he got elected.   Why’s he so terrified of letting us cast ballots on this issue?  Doesn’t seem like a democracy to me.  I guess the only thing to do is keep pressure on the government to stop this before we have to register flight plans for our friendly neighborhood rodents.

Thanks so much to Darlene for interviewing me.  I’ve been receiving such nice comments about the article in Focus on Kent.  It almost makes me think I know what I’m doing.  Thanks to all of you who read my blog and to those of you who’ve bought my ebook ‘Recession Proof.”  If you haven’t downloaded your copy yet, get it here www.amazon.com/dp/B006R6BDHU, Only 5 bucks, cheap eh! Thanks again!

    Thank you for reminding us,that we do not want or need fracking,in our beautiful province…our drinking water is more valueable and needs to be protected.
    Isn’t it a crime,how this issue is dividing our community,for the promise of short term,low pay jobs.Jeff Fox, who made the Gasland movie,said,a community is changed forever,by the gas and oil industry,and in the most negatives, of ways….
