News and events from around the Cubits Universe.

Winter is closing in on us here in the North. We finally had a hard frost and the gardens are officially finished for the season. Yesterday it fluffed a few flakes...just a small reminder of what's ahead.

Joke of The Week 

 Wooden Leg  Insurance

A man and his wife moved back  home to  Newfoundland , from Toronto . 
The wife had a wooden leg and to insure it in Ontario was $2000.00 a year! 
When they  arrived in  Newfoundland , they went to an Insurance agency  to see how much it would cost to insure the wooden leg. 
The agent looked it up on the  computer and said to the couple, '$39.00.'

The husband was shocked and  asked why it was so cheap here in  Newfoundland
to insure, because it cost him $2000.00 in Ontario !

The agent turned his computer screen to the  couple and said, 'Well, here it
is on the screen, it  says:

*Any wooden structure, with a sprinkler system over it, is  $39.00.*
I always did find the  Newfoundland Logic far superior to  most others.

New Feature

To quote our very own Dave, because he can say it better than anybody:)

"If you have a Facebook account, we have a new tool that will let you conveniently share links to your favorite articles with anybody who visits your facebook profile.

Next time you are looking at an article, scroll to the bottom of the article and you'll see a little Facebook icon that says, "Like" with a thumbs-up. Click on that and it'll automatically post to your Facebook wall a link to the article. It's a great way to bring more visitors into your own articles and those other articles that you like."

Deer season is in full swing up here. The dogs can't stand the lound bangs reverberating through the woods. They cringe and just want to run right back inside. Smart dogs!

I just want to take a moment and remind all of you, especially those of you who like to take walks, to be sure you can be seen! Blaze orange is my colour of choice...hat and coat. We don't want to lose anyody to a careless hunter...never assume that they all identify their target properly before pulling the trigger.

See you around the Universe!
