slaughter and savings

Today is December 6th, the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre. The day Canada remembers fourteen college students who were killed because of their sex and brains - women whom were bright enough to get into an engineering program.

I wrote about it here

And on a cheerier note, a cheap way to make some heat this winter...

(Well, you know, there are other ways to make cheap heat. But this one won't alarm the children.)

A sad day indeed in Canada's history, thank you for remembering/reminding us.

Thanks for the history lesson. I really didn't know.

Interesting heat idea. Unfortunately, one would probably need SOME sun, right?

That keeps Michigan out of the running.

This comment is in remembrance of the lives lost in Montreal that day last year.

So very tragic and sad.

The heating idea is great!

Every December 6th I get sad. I remember when it happened (I live close to Montreal). I totally have to try that solar panel thing. My kids both have South west facing windows but their rooms get cold at night. This might help things...
