BEST NEW YEAR - COMPLIMENTS OF THE BARD (AND ALL OF US)

BEST NEW YEAR

To all in NL spellbound stand:
Lang may yer big lum reek.*
Long life and warmth to hand,
Good health, and joy at peak.

We’re better blest than all the rest:
We’ve freedom and fresh air -
We’ve space, and room to quest.
Of those, make greatest care.

Not oppressed, perhaps ass-prest,
Bullets, we seldom fear -
We’re Royalty, it’s manifest,
So have the best New Year.

  3. All the very Best to the entire Uncle Gnarley crowd in 2018, (contributors and readers).

    Our collective thoughts and actions have contributed significantly to saving our province from (truly) evil forces of corruption, greed and deceit. It's far from over but we ARE well on the path to obtaining some justice and to correcting the path of economic ruin.

    Let's fight "dam" hard in the coming days & weeks for a REAL Inquiry and a deep and probing Audit. If we can achieve this we can reclaim some of the power over major decisions and rid our governance of much corruption, "apparent" thievery, and some (horribly) misguided policies.

    ... "miles to go before we sleep".

    Cheers to all and here's to a productive (and effective) 2018.
