School Zones are Back Ya'll!

school zone

Parents across the province are celebrating the fact that school starts this week, their kids on the other hand.... not so much.

The summer holidays are at an end, now it's back to reality. Homework, sports clubs, detentions, and the whole "you're in grade 12 now, what are you doing when you graduate". Which may seem like a straight forward question, but in reality, it's the worst question. And those of us who are done school realise what it means,  your last year of freedom before you're an adult. Wonderful.

Anyway, lets get back on track.

School Zones! Something all drivers have to take into consideration. Now, I know that driving 30km/h may seem like you're racing a snail, but it's a safe speed,and keeping kids safe is important! Did you know that;

Up to 70 km/h = $190 + $2 for every km/h over the limit.
Over 70 km/h = $328 + $4 for every km/h over.

Now that's a lot of money, so don't speed. Simple.

Also those cool yellow buses you Canadians have out here (It's like being in a movie) make sure you're keeping an eye out for those too.

Here's the Saskatchewan school zone safety laws.

Remember drivers, follow the law. Keep yourself and all the children safe!

Why You Want Summer to End ( You Just Don't Know it Yet)

YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IT YET; BUT THERE ARE MANY REASONS YOU CAN’T WAIT FOR SUMMER TO END:


• Tailgating – Grilling is great, but grilling + sports + getting way too competitive = even better.
• Hot Cocoa – Not the most ideal drink whe the humidex is 40+
• Halloween Candy – The only time it’s acceptable to have candy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
• Apple Picking – If you don’t pick your own apples, then you’re doing Fall all wrong.
• Holiday Leftovers – Mashed potatoes for days. Cranberry sauce on everything.
• Hot Soup – Not to mention cheddar broccoli bread bowls that’ll warm you up anytime.
• Pumpkin Pie – Might as well pop that top button on your pants now. It’s almost pie time.
• Pumpkin Spice Lattés – The first time each year that you catch a whiff of that pumpkin aroma, it’s magic.
• Mulled Wine – The perfect beverage for every Autumn party or family get-together.
• No More Hot Dogs – Bye-bye, Summer. We’ll be wanting you and your weenies again next year. Until then … so long tube steak!

The Best Bad Poems

10570474 10154478297035582 5464343759655976481 n

Today Is national "Bad poetry day", pretty cool. So, as I do I decided to ask our lovely face book followers to give me their best worst poem. Here are the poems!

I'm getting old and feral, my lights are going out. What used to be my attractiveness is now my water spout.

you made us laugh you made us cry we all loved you and will miss you terribly we will treasure your shows forever and keep you close to us
memory of robin Williams:(

Roses are Red....Wine is also Red,.... Poems are Hard...., Wine

Spring, summer, fall,
Winter sucks

Roses are red, the Bolt logo is blue. This station is great, Why don't you listen too?

Roses are red.. Violets are blue.. If you expected a poem that makes sense... then it sucks to be you

To my family ...Roses are Red , Violets are blue ...I didn't think I could love anyone as much as I LOVE YOU ♡♡♡

Roses are red violets are blue 12 beer cost less than dinner for two

We had a toaster once
That claimed it featured
"Toast Logic."
It never seemed to toast
The bread the same way
Two times in a row.

So maybe its logic
Was toast.

 

 

 

 

 

Gamblin' Man: Kenny Rogers

Congratulations to Kenny Rogers for being honored with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the 47th Annual CMA Awards!

Kenny Rogers has particularly strong memories for one item on display in his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. He says it's the holster he wore for ``The Gambler'' T-V shows.


There were five ``Gambler'' specials and Rogers says he was approached about doing a sixth one, but he feels he's just not up to it anymore. He jokes he would have to be shot in the left leg and the right shoulder in the first scene. The ``Kenny Rogers: Through the Years'' exhibit runs through next June.

The Gambler is a series of American revisionist western TV movies starring Kenny Rogers as Brady Hawkes, a fictional old-west gambler. The character was inspired by Rogers' hit song "The Gambler".
