Ed’s Garage

 

 

A popular former farmer and part-time mechanic finds a new vocation giving advice to people with problems. Complications arise when Cassandra, an urban psychotherapist sets up a private practice next door.

In the days of the small square bale, everybody was basically happy. Sure, we had no money and we worked like rented mules, but we were happy. A farmer couldn’t overproduce and drive down prices and go broke fast the way we do today. That’s because a man who tried to get his family to move more than ten thousand of those square bales in one season faced a mutiny. If a kid was ambitious he could toss bales for the neighbours all summer: first cut in June, second cut in July, third cut and the straw in August. It kept him out of trouble, built up his muscles and made him so relieved to get back to school he forgot to complain how dumb the teachers were.

And Dad, by the time he was 65, he was so sick of getting piled into the feeder by the cows on an icy day in March, he couldn’t wait to hand over the farm to the kids.

But then some clown went and invented the big round bale. Suddenly, you don’t need the family out in the hayfields. One guy on a tractor can twist up all of the hay from here to Hall’s Hill without getting chaff down the back of his neck once. So the kids have nothing to do all summer and they have to find jobs in town. They learn about video arcades, beer and crystal meth. Suddenly you’ve got a problem with vandalism and youth crime.

Even worse, the old guy doesn’t know when to quit. He puts a heated cab on the tractor and feeds those big round bales to his cows all winter without getting snow on his boots. He gets his hips and knees replaced so he can haul himself into the tractor and sit there like he’s in an office chair. And the kids get sick of waiting around for him to quit the farm. They go to the city and work for the bank selling junk bonds and derivatives or worse… they run for office. Instead of doing something useful, they’re networking and manipulating and profit-taking and sitting in outdoor cafés sipping their machiatto cappuccinos and talking about relationships and real estate…

Cyclosportive Perth – Cycle Tour

 

Cyclosportive Perth – Cycle Tour will be taking place on September 14th, 2019, starting at the Perth Lions Club.

The Perth area is a beautiful and well kept secret for cycling. Maybe surprisingly, the area also has a tremendous network of dirt roads and trails on which to ride. These routes can be used to cut across some of the busier paved roads.  They also tend to go in areas not normally seen on two wheels.  Some of the best riding can be found on these routes, and this is your chance to check them out!

Parkinson Canada SuperWalk

 

 

This September, walk with us at Parkinson Canada SuperWalk – Canada’s only nationwide fundraiser to support Canadian’s with Parkinson’s.

Walk with us this September at Canada’s only nationwide fundraiser for Parkinson’s. No matter what tomorrow may bring, nothing will stop us from funding more research, support and advocacy.

Join our movement of more than 80 communities and 10,000 participants across Canada.

Parkinson Canada SuperWalk takes place each September. Across the country, walkers, donors and volunteers band together to show one another they are not alone in standing up to Parkinson’s.

Since 1990, walkers like you have raised more than $38 Million (including $2.35 Million in 2018) to support a better life today for Canadians living with Parkinson’s, a world without Parkinson’s tomorrow.

With the same strength of spirit people living with Parkinson’s demonstrate daily, we will not stop walking until there is a cure. No Matter What. To register yourself or a team, or to volunteer, visit online at www.superwalk.ca.

The Regimental Band of the Governor General’s Foot Guards in Concert at St. Paul’s Perth

 

The Regimental Band of the Governor General’s Foot Guards will be returning for their fifth concert at St. Paul’s United Church in Perth on Labour Day Sunday, September 1 at 2:00 p.m

The band shares a close connection to the Governor General and provides music for many ceremonies in the Ottawa area, including the annual nationally televised Remembrance Day ceremony held at the National War Memorial. The band is immediately recognizable in their iconic scarlet tunics and bearskin hats.

The band will showcase its different small ensembles from the flute, clarinet, saxophone, and brass sections.  They will also perform “programmatic” music for the entire band: a musical fantasy depicting Godzilla’s attempt to take over Las Vegas, and other exciting tunes from the cinema.  The program will be rounded out with several gorgeous works written by Canadian composers.

Admission to the concert is free, but donations will be welcomed at the door with proceeds to St. Paul’s to cover advertising and promotion.

Celebrate Labour Day Sunday afternoon with the Regimental Band of the Governor General’s Foot Guards, in air-conditioned, accessible and acoustically-pleasing St. Paul’s United Church, 25 Gore Street West in Perth.

 

Date :
Sunday, September 1, 2019 from 2-3:30pm
