The Saturday Six: May 22, 2010

A rusted out old car near where Route 66 used to run through the Painted Desert in Arizona. PHOTO BY: VINCE VERSACE


Today’s photo from the Versace Vistas archive was snapped in early 2009 after a great day hiking and exploring the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest in Arizona. The weather went from violently windy and stormy to placid and comfortable from one end of the park to the other. A great surprise was coming across the telephone poles which used to run along Route 66 when it stretched through the Painted Desert. You can see those poles just beyond the rusted out husk of the old car.

Here we go, your Victoria Day Weekend Saturday Six:

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours: So, our members of parliament do not want Auditor-General Sheila Fraser to take a peek at their expenses. Considering it is our money they have spent we have a right to see what they are spending it on. If you have nothing to hide, then there should not be a problem.

Calling Rogers…wake up and smell the war: Dear Rogers- Please revise your customer service representative training and contract policy ASAP. There’s a Canadian soldier who has been shipped to Afghanistan whose family is fighting Rogers to get him out of his contract temporarily. There should not be an issue here but obviously there is one when the dad of this Canadian soldier takes his story to the media.

Monster Mash Time- “The Ugly One” has arrived: Big Trout Lake in northern Ontario seems to have a monster mystery on its hands. Local elders call the animal body which washed up on the lake’s shoreline “the ugly one”. Looks like a lake otter whose facial skin and fur has deteriorated off….

Unique gravemarkers- talk about going out in style: An interesting collection of gravemarkers. Some people do get the last laugh.

London’s 2012 Olympic mascots: There’s only one word for those mascots: RIDICULOUS.

Now that is an invention!: Have you found yourself trapped at your desk among a gaggle of wires, power cables, USB chords etc. ? Here is a picture of an invention so incredible in its simplicity to help organize that chaos.
