Which of course brings us to the fact that
my Mom & Dad live there; well, just my Mom since
Dad died last year. Though he did have his ashes scattered
in the ocean, so in a way he's still there. So after moving around
a number of times, they finally settled in Nanaimo, on the Island.

Checkers has about 500 billion billion potential positions. It could be a case of game over for checkers- scientists say the ancient board game has finally been solved.
A Canadian team has created a computer program that can win or draw any game, no matter who the opponent is. It took an average of 50 computers nearly two decades to sift through the 500 billion billion possible checkers positions to come up with the solution.
Writing in the journal Science, the team said it was the most challenging game solved to date.
Jonathan Schaeffer, lead author on the paper and chair of the department of computer science at the University of Alberta, told the BBC News website: "This was a huge computational problem to solve - more than a million times bigger than anything that had ever been solved before."
What an incredible leap forward for humanity...this is possibly the greatest
scientific problem ever solved!!
Or maybe we should have been trying to find a fix to reverse global warming...

Now I remember back around 1974 Tony Orlando & Dawn had a hit
song called Candida; the refrain started out with:
"Oh my Candida
We could make it together..."
So did whoever wrote this song actually write it
about giving his girlfriend a yeast infection??
So in the spirit of Candida, here's a few more diseases
someone can use for a song:
Myelitis........(inflammation of the spine)
Impetigo......(infectious skin disease)
Romantic,eh? Well I'll bet you could make them sound romantic...

But you know, he died on the 4th of July, hours before
he was going to perform! You gotta admire a guy who

Now Bill and the original Drifters can get back together
and harmonize as in the old days...
