Welcome to the âgood newsâ blog.
I feel that Iâve been drenched with pandemic news, biological and political. You canât turn the TV or browser on anymore without the deluge of bad news.
And itâs getting worse.
The news is just so repetitious, and there are so many important questions that are just not being answered. For example, something thatâs been keeping me up at night that no-oneâs addressing, âare 2 meters apart sufficient for fart transmission?â Maybe one of you medical workers know the answer to that and can comment below.
But I’m going to make it better…
While trying to get out of my circular routine, I decided to go through my photo archives. I stumbled into some smiling faces that made me forget about the state of the globe for awhile. These photos are in the Canadian Arctic, a very rough and unforgiving territory. Even though the inhabitants often have an extremely difficult time, Iâve never seen people so willing to smile and so quick to make friends. Photography was a cinch.
So turn off your bad news stations, sit back and relax, preferable with a glass of single malt (what Iâm drinking right now) and enjoy the smiles of the children. I donât think youâll be able to resist smiling.

Len, you did it again. Lovely photos!
With regards to social fart distancing, I propose the following formula. Please adjust the constants if you have better data.
D = 2.5*O + 15.5*G
D is separation distance in meters
O is in lbs of onions
G is in lbs of garlic

Sounds like a pretty good function, Len, but don’t forget… farts are particulate… so many particles will fall sooner, due to gravity.

Remember that farts are highly flammable and at two meters away you can still be in the danger zone, specially if the farter is a smoker. sparks and lighted cigarettes can be hazardous to your health a two meters and up. how far can a fart reach you :-)it s not fartfetched it can.

Len I know you love it there, and you were planning on going back, but it looks a bit bleak to me. At least they had a Tim Hortons!

Yes, it’s the most furthest north Timmies in the world.
