Monkey-HappyFaceWe go into this weekend of lottery chances with two – count’em – two rolled over pots of gold. Both the Max and 6/49 failed to produce winning tickets last time around, so the OLG has kindly topped up the grand prize so we’ve got an even bigger carrot being waved in our face. [clapping my hands like a five year old] Oh goodie, goodie. Get out there and slap down your seven bucks. Seven? I hear you ask? I never play Encore, I just stick with the essential so this translates into $5 for the Max and $2 for the 6/49. That’s enough. If you’re going to gamble, know you limits and my limit is $9 per week.


In case you haven’t heard, in case you’re not in the know, Sunday is Mother’s Day. Yes, this is the day we all give thanks for the most wonderful of creatures, our mothers. Gawd who puts with more cra… ah, stuff from us and still loves us? My mother is dead and gone so to those of you who still have your mother around, for heaven’s sake get out there and take advantage of this time to celebrate the person who probably had the biggest influence on your life. A “thank you” would be in order along with a big “I love you”.

May 4th

Ha! I realised that I missed Star Wars Day. “May the Fourth Be With You”. [groans] Oh my gawd, what a terrible pun.


Hey! I just looked at the listings. Anybody consider heading out to the cinema this weekend? Thor opens today. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 82%. Fast Five comes in with 78%. [chuckles] Not that Mom would want to see either one of those films!

See you all around on the pages of Oye! Times.
