This is a blog about Calgary, my meanderings on business, technology and life.

It strikes me that many people look to others for opinions on a decision such as this. So what if the alpha's are wrong?

I might be the only one who feels this way!

First the economy then the soccer dome and now the Golf dome!

Maybe I haven't posted too much lately but it is because I am keeping a close eye on the economy and on what is going on with Real Estate

What is on your "want" list?

I just read about the new public toilet in Calgary. Apparently it has a ten minute time limit and once that is hit then the doors open and sirens go off. I don't know about you but sometimes ten minutes can be awfully short!

So if the automated toilet led to you being "exposed" would you be ticketed for indecent exposure?

The idea is floating around that perhaps with the loonie versus the greenback we should look at a common currency. Personally I really like the idea. Why? Mostly because I hated the way our standard of living suffered when the dollar was low ( ie 60 cents).

Is there a danger here? Probably, since a unified North American currency would be impacted by the ever so large US national debt. Not being an economist I can really only look at it in everyday terms. Flip over the book and there would be one price not two. There would be some comfort in knowing that the price of lettuce in Texas could be compared to the price of lettuce in Calgary without having to convert the currency. ( sidebar , now if we could just get rid of that silly metric system life would really be grand)

Of course the biggest problem is what would we call the darn thing. We can't use Euro, it's taken. Let's see ( as I begin to muse), North American currency. Could we call it the Nora. Maybe but it doesn't seem to have the same cachet...

Alberta government studies the idea of changing the date of Christmas.
By wolf Leonhardt on 10/26/2007 6:01 AM

The "our fair share" idea leaves me with a certain amount of uneasiness.  You could easily surmise that somehow we have been getting screwed by some evil business types, in this case BIG OIL.  Is that really the case here? I don't mean to give you a course in capitolism here but really the job of any business is to make profits. How do we make profits? It is extremely simple. You buy low and sell higher. Big Oil, medium Oil and even small Oil have been doing exactly what they are supposed to do. Negotiate their best possible deal on the supply side.

If we haven't been getting "our fair share" then to me - and I readily admit I am no expert in the O & G industry- the real blame must fall on the original supplier. Gee wonder who that was? Hint, think previous governments.

Clearly to me, this whole thing is a diversionary tactic with a nasty twist. Think election, think put the blame on someone else.

RIP Alberta Advantage

Here is a novel idea - any side effects?

In a global economy is there any way to justify the huge difference between Canadian pricing and US pricing on many goods.

It seems Calgary has become a raceway and yet reports lead us to believe everything is under control

Great Falls - Cross border Shopping - Quadruplets - Charleston Daily Mail : What do all these things have in common?

Is Calgary caught up in a crime wave? Is the city gripped with fear. Let us know by taking our poll.
