Now I figured that my father's baldness was something that was happening with age, and keeping the shaved head was just his way of making the best of a bad situation. Not even a bad situation, really, a bad situation is going bald and wanting desperately to have your hair back and smearing all sorts of quack compounds on your head in the belief that your virility has been undermined. But I sort of took it without question is the point (how easily I get off track), and then I discover this in his house. What is it, you ask? Well, it's a dog chew. Fluffy dog toy the kind they place in buckets in pet stores for dogs to fetch while their owners look proudly on. But, more than that, notice the logo - it's an ANTI-SEMETIC Dog trainer. I'm amazed they haven't been busted for this. My father pleaded ignorance and reassures me that his balding is natural, not part of his joining some neo-nazi cult. I kinda have to believe him. But I wonder if they have these toys in other flavours, sort of like Jesus Squeakers, or the Latter Day Saints chews . . .

If you live in Calgary, chances are it's probably Shaw. In most of Western Canada they have a monopoly on High Speed (Cable) internet. How this came to pass is beyond me. There are, as of late, alternatives - for example 3web , or CyberSurf as they now call themselves, but, as luck has it, they are merely a vendor selling on Shaw's services. So, for example, if you have a problem with your internet service, you call CyberSurf, who then call Shaw. . .apparently this arrangement is so that consumers aren't led to believe they don't have a choice.
