Hi Frank, it’s great to see you back up and running again (at least technologically if not physically).
PPC – So, the financial summary from the PPC. Yup, I saw that $100k and thought what happened to his pension? That was the second insult after the first in which most of our donations to the PPC HQ ended up in his riding? I doubt my constituents were happy to hear about that one.
$100k isn’t much, it’s about $300 a riding, but that’s a lot of campaign signs for $300 – certainly better than the $ZERO dollars we got (we didn’t even get token amounts for the memberships in our own ridings that were collected overall, which I argued for back in late summer).
I think my campaign received around $650 in contributions from the public, $1,400 through my donations. Every penny that went in went to running the EDA and my campaign. I think the ending balance was about $40 and we are, of course, ALL volunteers. I put a lot more in that can’t be put in monetary amounts either (as you most certainly did, and understand I’m sure).
I can’t see myself ever running for the PPC again knowing the truth about how money was earned and spent not to ignore the months of silence where we were basically left out in the cold wondering what the HQ was up to. “Disappointing” is the nicest word I can say.
Netflix – I gave up on them in early 2019. They were producing such garbage and most of the shows were “Netflix Originals” and you know how great those are. I switched to Amazon Prime, costs me about $90/year, gets me free Prime delivery through Amazon (which helped immensely during this covid nonsense) and I’ll probably renew it. Between that and YouTube I have all the video entertainment I would ever need.
Garden – You definitely helped inspire me to plant our garden. Just in the last week we’ve filled half a sink with cucumbers, and a small bag of yellow beans (which is more than I expected after the pests attacked them). I have 2 big pumpkins forming, tomatoes, carrots, beets and hopefully in time peppers. I’ve already enjoyed 3 of the cucumbers cut up as a side snack. Most of the seeds were from William Dam (I think the tomatoes, beets and onions-which didn’t grow weren’t). I’ll definitely order from them next year and we’re planning a 50-100sqft expansion to the gardens. My wildflowers are slow but some have started blooming, hopefully in time to feed some butterflies and bees before October. Loved the farm videos from the both of you (and junior LOL).
I can’t wait to see the direction you’re taking your channel Frank, you’ve still got at least a few of us and your numbers will grow again before the end of the year.
