Just a few things that struck me as I was reading the morning papers.

First of all FORD (Fix Or Repair Daily) Corporation is in trouble. They just got knocked out of the number two spot in the U.S. by Toyota and out of #2 in Canada by Chrysler.

On top of that, General Motors is about to loose it's #1 spot in world wide vehicle sales to Toyota this year.

U.S. car makers continue their slide!!!

The troubled life of Britney Spears added a new chapter when the intoxicated pop star was whisked away in an ambulance after police were called to her house to help solve a nearly three-hour custodial dispute involving her young sons.

Late Thursday, police said officers were called to Spears' house around 8 p.m. in a custodial dispute with ex-husband Kevin Federline over their small boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Footage from Associated Press Television showed Spears being taken away in an ambulance from her home late Thursday while being followed by dozens of celebrity reporters. Several police cars, their sirens blaring in the middle of the night, escorted the ambulance carrying Spears.

Spears has appeared increasingly out of control the last year. She has been photographed without underwear and appeared to be drunk and out-of-control. She shaved her head, beat a car with an umbrella and spent a month in rehab and has had a handful of fender benders, including one in which she ran over a photographer's foot.

Now, let's all feel sorry for the poor people in Atlantic Canada. The four provinces, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland/Labrador are on the Eastern Seaboard and if you look at a map you see that they sort of stick out into the Atlantic on top of the New England States.

For this reason any winter storm that goes up the coast eventually hits these four provinces and that's where all the snow gets dumped. They actually have more snow than Montreal! (While we here in the sunbelt of Southern Ontario have almost none.)

Anyways, it has snowed out East so much this year that in the cities they have run out of space to put the snow. (And winter ain't nearly over yet bunky!)

They better hope for a January thaw!
