Massena Curling Club,.... Part Two

A couple of years ago a curling program was offered by the Massena Joint Recreation Commitee. I was lucky enough to go to one of their sessions, get on the ice, and see what the game was all about.

Unfortunately, due to a sore back, I was unable to participate.

Fast forward a couple of years and we see that the Rec program was not continued.

I'm thinking that it is time to get curling started again in Massena! I am going to be contacting regional Curling organizations to see what this will take.

In the mean time, anyone who is interested give me a shout. There is power in numbers and the more we can get interested in the sport, the more likely we are to meet with success!

Good Curling!

Desperation and the IRS


No taxation without representation....

More and more we read in the news of individuals who are targetted and hounded by the IRS or state taxation agencies. It is not hard to understand why or how Joseph Andrew Stack was driven to such a desperate act.

Especially when you read the note he left behind (link). Oh,.... but interestingly enough, the FBI has already shut the site down. Not that it matters. The note has already been copied to multiple other sites (like here). I wonder how many more WEB site admins will be contacted by Big Brother and requested to remove this little diatribe. Almost a little Stalinist, isn't it?
