USA vs Canada

I’m a Canadian, and watch mostly Canadian TV channels. This has changed since I was a kid, when the Buffalo New York channels were a major part of my day. Today, almost everything I want to watch is available on a TV channel with Canadian commercials. With the exception of A&E and TLC, I don’t really see American TV ads anymore.

I have mostly negative memories of watch US prime time and seeing mostly debt and sickness and personal injury lawyer ads. Mostly fear based advertising.

That too may have changed since I was younger.

Tonight, I watched MOCKINGBIRD LANE on an American TV channel, and saw American prime time advertising again.

The first thing that caught my attention was actually the Honda Commercials. In the USA, Honda is represented as a light blue colored logo. The Honda stores and advertising are blue, and it just looks so weird.

Honda isn’t blue. It’s red.

It disturbed me.  Then I realized this was the first difference that I noticed.  All the other commercials seemed familiar.

I guess Canada and the US are more alike…

I was almost at the steps to the house when I turned my back and the rooster. It's usually a safe spot especially since the food is a long way away. I think you may be mad because I didn't bring out a fifth portion for him which for a while I was doing,   It's so...

Afternoon Feeding conflicts

I placed the majority portion of food in the elevated area near the door. Because, it had rained earlier, I had to reach to grab the main dish, flip it over and let the water out as everyone came running, eager for their dinner portions.   I set my defence stick...

Mojo and Me

I learned the name of the rooster's mojo but I prefer calling it the rooster anyway because calling it by its name implies some form of relationship. I suppose in a way we do have an adversarial relationship he wants to attack me and I want to avoid being attacked. He...
