• lightest grey is tex 80 so best to use it for topstitching only (and something else for construction seams)
• white is also tex 80

Should the US be designated as a hardship post for Canadian diplomats?
I prefer to think that this dying mobster's theft of Judy Garland's ruby slippers was really a frustrated quest for the platonic ideal of a red shoe.
Sometimes when I'm feeling low, I'll do a search on red shoes.

Today, though, it was clearly too damn cold for them to roll out of bed that early.
Finally, proper Canadian winter.
Education is increasingly looked at as an inconvenience, and it won’t stop with eliminating college. When that gets renormalized, look for high school to last two years so kids can start their apprenticeships.

E-Crime Rapper ‘Punchmade Dev’ Debuts Card Shop
The rapper and social media personality Punchmade Dev is perhaps best known for his flashy videos singing the praises of a cybercrime lifestyle. With memorable hits such as “Internet Swiping” and “Million Dollar Criminal” earning millions of views, Punchmade has leveraged his considerable following to peddle tutorials on how to commit financial crimes online.

p.s., yes, that is a functioning diamond-crusted card skimming device hanging from his neck.

One of three wild turkey hens who likes to hang around on my backyard gate.
At night, I see them all roosting in the tree tops, unperturbed by the cold and howling wind.
Not everybody's cup of tea, I know, but I have a soft spot for these enormous but gentle birds.
