Today while browsing our local free 24 hour paper, instantly a headline caught my eye. It read “Government Opens Up Wireless Market”. I was ecstatic, finally there would be some competition instead, of the archaic monopoly. For years Bell, Rogers and the evil empire Telus, has taken advantage of us Canadian consumers. I would love to see Verizon, or AT& T come in and kick Telus’s ass, even if it did mean selling our souls to the American devil. No wireless company or Internet service provider should be able to dominate any market. In California, the people have the right to move their cable company out of town if they refuse to do a good job. They get a 5 year contract, and if in that time they rip people off, they are told to pack their bags. Today it is the wireless networks and maybe tomorrow, it will be the Internet broadband service providers and then the cable companies. Only time will tell, if us the Canadian people will get a better deal, or if the CEO’s of these so-called competitors will just line their pockets with gold.

I know, I haven’t written in a while, not that anyone would notice, since no one reads this. I will continue to write when I am up to it, and when I can. I have been going through some kind of mid-life crisis. I have taken up the guitar again. I know what everyone thinks, I’m sitting in a corner playing Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell songs. To a certain extent that is very true. There’s nothing I like better than a good folk song, with a good story to tell. These are some of the best kind of songs. Songs that are king. What I have in my mind right now, are the blues. I want nothing more, than to learn my pentatonic scales, and whale on an electric guitar. I feel that would feed my broken down soul. I would like to do this all on a pink paisley fender telecaster and a screaming fender amp. Call it crazy, but on the other hand I call it just getting reacquainted with an old friend. Wish me luck.
