I was very excited when I averaged 100 people per day on the blog.

These days the average is between 400 to 500 people.

I’ll admit the amount should be much higher but that’s the way it is!

I should promote this blog more on the information Highway but I don’t bother.

I’m not on the Blogroll or ping my blog.

Someone told me that the numbers are not accurate. The stats should be much higher?

Who truly knows??

It’s not everyone who comes here on daily basis.

People will come every 3 to 4 days to see what’s going on?

People are busy these days so therefore they don’t have enough time to sit at a computer to read my whole blog.

Readers come here for different reasons.

Some are not interested in my views but they love the pictures

Others just wish to read the comment section.

Others are the real enemies and just leaves nasty comments.

Just as the time I caught Robert McKinnon < Irving employee > leaving a nasty comment.


He tried to remove it but it was too late.

Enemies I do have and it goes with the price of fame I guess?

Of all the stupid comments I heard about this blog? This one takes the cake.

An individual told me that a young person didn’t like me taking pictures.

The person said - When the cops arrest me on the streets? I don’t want my picture taken!!!


Well? There’s a fine solution to this problem?



There has been lots of attention to this blog since we first began.

This blog grabbed the attention of many bloggers around the world during my blogging trial.


Some are still here on a daily basis.

Bloggers are so popular that we have Irving’s bloggers these days.


Are the Irving's bloggers true bloggers???? < I had to add that one! >

So??? I finally hit 1,000,000 page read!!!

I did my job but I need to settle down on issues.

There’s some issues that I will not let go!

1- The drugging and the killings of our children must come to a stop!
< I doubt it because Mike Murphy is giving more power to the school system to kill our children >

2- My arrest in Saint John which includes changes in our Legal Aid System. < Take a look a the Ashley Smith case >


3- The ban from the New Brunswick Legislature. < This could get really ugly fast!!! > Someone mentioned the reason in the comment section and I'll let it go by. So therefore the Liberals are going to quickly change from the good old boys and gals to FLITY RATS!!! < Is that how you spell it???


4- Boarders and Roomers needs to be protected.


Yes, there have been lots of action since this blog began and God only knows what the future holds?

It's a darn shame that I'm not paid for what I enjoy doing???? If I was paid? I would be a Millionaire!!!!

But that's ok!!!! I'll keep on doing what I do best and THAT'S BLOGGING!!!!


I wonder what’s the next goal for this blog?

1,000,000 hits????

Yes, in about 5 years? < If I’m not shot??? >

Truly Stay tuned!!!

Fredericton Train Station - Excuse me Mary dear??? IT SNOWED AGAIN LAST NIGHT!!!!

Prayer and Devotions

I Will Make You Fishers of Men
by Father Paul Campbell, LC

Speak of your faith to someone today.

November 30, 2007
St. Andrew, apostle

Matthew 4: 18-22

As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him. He walked along from there and saw two other brothers, James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat, with their father Zebedee, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed him.

Introductory Prayer: Lord, I want to thank you for this moment of conversation. Help me to open my heart to your will. You are the goal of my life, and I want to direct all that I am toward you.

Petition: I want to hear and follow Christ’s call to be his disciple.

1. Andrew Brings Simon to Jesus Today we celebrate the feast of one of the first disciples. In the Gospel of John, it is recorded that Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist when he went to stay one afternoon with Jesus. It was an afternoon that changed his life. When he returned home, the first thing Andrew did was to approach his brother Simon and tell him that he had found the Messiah. Then he brought Simon to Jesus. Andrew didn’t keep his faith to himself, but was inspired by love to share the good news with others. Every true encounter with Christ leads us to share that experience with others.

2. They Leave Everything Then came the moment when Jesus called Andrew to take on a larger role in the mission of saving souls. He, along with his brother Simon Peter, would be part of the Twelve. Andrew responded immediately, dropping his nets and leaving everything behind. He shows us the only fit response to God’s call in our lives. He didn’t leave reluctantly, but joyfully went with Jesus and took part in his mission of saving souls.

3. He Persevered to the End Andrew was faithful to the end. He persevered in his vocation. He began well, and he finished well. It is not enough to start the race for the crown of everlasting life, because each turn in the road leads to occasions for us to turn around, to return home, and not to finish. Scripture tells of disciples who did turn around, never to follow Christ again. Like Andrew, we need to persevere to the end, faithful to all that Christ calls us to do.

Conversation with Christ: Jesus, Andrew brought his brother Simon to you. Who do you want me to bring to you? Who are the people with whom you want me to share my faith today? Sometimes I hesitate and hold back when I hear your voice nudging me forward. Give me the grace to respond immediately to your call in my life.

Resolution: I will speak of my faith to someone today.
