    Hi chief ,
    Good to see your face around here, once again.
    It has been a while my good man.

    U r funny as hell!!!

    Interestingly enough ,I didn’t know the difference.
    Thabks for pointing it out.
    Once again ,u put me in place:)))
    man , things i don’t know

    Dear Jeff

    U sure chose a wrong profession
    U could easily enter the stardom and rank tone of money in by simply becoming a stand up comedian. You are a natural ,chief

    U have ,whatamacall it! , the flair.

    Thabks for the video clip
    If I had ur American accent
    I envy you chief

    Hi chief
    Let me completely clear about something.

    On my last post
    I didn’t mean -in any way-that are bad at what u do. As a master of fact , you are at the top of your game.
    Having said that ,u could have been the best stand up comedian of all time.
    I m telling you man
    You know
    No stand up comedian ever made me laugh but Your brand of humour can’t make me laugh every time.
    U have a funny air about you

    The bits u subtly slide in the video lessons with the -I must say -unique ,funny facial exoressions and the way u punch the closing funny lines are very refreshing , ,cheerful.

    Ur facial expressions are priceless

    U sure chose the wrong profession my man , that I can tell you

    Hi folks

    Happy Independence Day USA

    Well ,presumably today the crowds will mass in various U.S. cities to mark their beloved country independence. A noble move, I must say.

    Well- We get that;we understand-as we -the Canucks- weary of a 4 day celebration ,just last night, wrapped up the celebration of canada sesquicentenary birthday.
    Yup folks !!!

    Canada turned 150 years old. It is something ,isn’t it?
    Unofficially Canada is way older
    But ,the formation of a central government and the drafting of Canada’s chart of freedom must have happened then. I might be totally off on that. I m just guessing.
    Sorry folks, too lazy to look it up. Besides ,I m late fir work as it is.
    It sucks
    Going to work after a four year statuary holiday.
    Kill me ,kill me now ๐Ÿ™‚

    The 4-day state -financed festivity all across Canada ended last night with a series of very loud fireworks last night throughout major cities in Canada.

    However ,the mesmerizing ,transfixed fireworks as extravagant as they were was not the highlight of the 4-day long party. What truly marked the Canada’s 150 th birthday was in deed the passionate ,compassionate speech of our charming prime minster in the podium in Canada ‘s parliament hill in Ottawa -the capital of Canada.
    I was there
    It was pouring down
    I was drenched by the end of it
    I thought my lesson

    Between you and me folks ,
    I risked the precarious weather condition at my own peril when I didn’t take an umbrella with me

    In all honesty , I figured it would be a good opening line in a festive rainy day.
    U know ,asking to join under the gal umbrella standing next to me.

    Needless to say
    My plan backed fire.
    Such a slap on the face !!!

    I digressed
    Where was I
    Oh, second to the prime minster address , the highlight of the 4 day-long events was a 4 story tall inflated yellowish baby duck being moored rather sitting -so to speak ๐Ÿ™‚ on the marines in Down town Toronto.

    U know ,a ginormous replication of the plastic baby duck we lure all kids to the bat tub with ๐Ÿ™‚ as kids hate bathing.
    I ,for one ,remember resenting it very much.

    Talk about sitting dock
    Just imagine if one mischievous kid would have taken a needle to it or would have poked it with sth sharp , a pointy rock even.

    Thanks jeff for clarifying the difference
    I m using the word ” rock ” with confidence these days

    Best wishes,

    I miss you all,


  6. Tania says:


    I saw on TV the festivity of the Canada’s 150th birthday.
    Thank you Peter for all details. You are very kind to tell us about you and your
    interesting country.

    We have a very, very hot summer with high temperatures.
    Maybe in the Rocky Mountains it could be better.
    A rock garden? Yes, I’d like it.
    I’d drink a drink with rocks, undiluted, with ice cubes.
    But I am on the rocks, short of money. Just a rock candy?
    What about the rock-‘n’-roll music?

  8. Tania says:


    Some proverbs about stone:

    He fells two dogs with one stone.

    Who remove stones, bruise their fingers.

  9. Tania says:


    I will leave no stone unturned , trying every possible means,
    as I have to be a stony woman, hard as stone,
    but not a stone-hearted woman, unfeeling as I am a warm woman.

  10. Tania says:


    Stone Age, the very early period of civilization when weapons and tools were
    made of stone not metal.

    Stone – broke, entirely without money.

  11. Tania says:


    I like the precious stones used in jewelry, stone – fruit , as peaches and plums.
    But what about a whisky on the rocks?

    All the best for you,
