Public Nudity is Now Promoted?

Isn’t this public nudity? I thought there were laws about that in the US, North America? This is proof of the level of obsession with sexuality. Trump will have his 4 – 8 years. But, what does it say about us (the people) that this was created, displayed in public and has been saved for further public display elsewhere?

It’s not about Trump, for me. It’s about the fact that with all of this, people are only talking about Trump. That’s pretty screwed up.

A little more irony? This was posted to a site with (Not Safe For Work) in the headline. But, the fact is, there was no fig leaf on this when it was displayed in a public street. Not safe for work? At this point, does that really mean anything?

What are the standards for public nudity, sex and sexuality now? Are we just waiting for the government and legal system to catch up with an “anything goes”policy? Or, are we leaving it to them to set the guidelines and uphold some kind of standards?

If this doesn’t leave you a little confused about what our standards for public nudity are, why not?

Heart Stirring my Canadianisms

I have that cookie cutter, more than one of the same kind even. I’m not much of a tea drinker. But, this image just appeals to me so much, I had to cut and paste it over here. It’s on several sites so I’m not even including a link. (The first couple of sites only had a thumbnail and sent me looking for the original site which did not even have the image up any more).

Anyway, it’s red and white and has a maple leaf. To me this image is vibrant and yet soothing with that feeling of home. Plus, even though I rarely drink tea, I still like the fancy tea party idea.

Effective Advertising for Canadians


There’s a pretty effective ad. I came across this ad on the site for the York Region newspaper. Someone had sent me a link to follow to a story they had printed. Anyway, I was struck by that ad with the maple leaf falling down. I even went to the site for the Nature Conservancy.
