I have been overwhelmed to do much blogging.
- There have been all the hockey playoff results. Too bad Habs!!
- Canada has a federal election. What is happening? The NDP of all parties could be opposition! And maybe even the NDP leader Jack Layton could be Prime Minister as head of a coalition! Ed Broadbent's dream could be achieved?!? Or at least I have hear speculation. It was only last week, I was hearing talk of the Conservatives possibly attaining a majority.
- There will be a Royal Wedding in England. Some of the student here have heard about it. The women expressed interest in watching the ceremony. But I doubt the ceremony will be shown live here. I wish it was. Royal Pageantry beats October 1st parades in my books.
- I have a demo to prepare for.
- I have had prep to do at school. Here are two new discussion questions lists on my ESL site: Work hard or play hard? and Cupboards and Fridges.
- May Day will not be a holiday for me. I will be doing two days of cooking shows.
- Not that I am complaining. Busyness is goodness.
- I should say I wore short sleeves for the first time yesterday.
- Wuxi traffic is a good source of blogging material. Yesterday, I saw a three-wheeled motorcycle/wagon combo blindly scoot across the street. I flinched to watch the maneuver as a taxi came within feet of hitting the wagon.
- This morning, I was riding the bus to work as it came to a quick stop at a traffic light. I saw a girl about to get off, have to hang for dear life on a pole -- her legs flew in the air. I looked at the front of the bus, and saw the rear end of the van very too close to the bus's windshield.
I have run of K family studio photos to show you. I still have a week's worth of Tony Kaulins studio photos for you to copy, print, and place on the walls and fridges of your homes. Here are the latest:

Here is some video taken at Long Tou Zhou Park, and at the Niels and Zhang Ying Wedding:
- Check out the comments on this political entry I made last week -- a hard leftie and rightie go at it? Two people write around each other? Abbott and Costello? Groucho Marx or Karl Marx? Chesterton versus Bernard Shaw? Hannity and Colmes? Canadian Crossfire? You decide.
- Don't forget about the Wuxi China Expatdom where the WCE Contingent fights the Kraken.
- I'll post this H.L. Mencken quote on 1848:
