28 August 2005 The Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost

Our services this week are scheduled for: 9am Holy Eucharist, St. Andrew's, Neil's Harbour 11amHoly Eucharst, St. John's, Ingonish This week we will be blessed by welcoming The Very Reverend Glen Burgomaster with us as a special guest preacher. Father Glen is the Dean of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and the Rector of the Cathedral Church of All Saints, Halifax . All are welcome at our services of worship.

I got ANOTHER mention...

The folks at CBC On The Line quoted me too...

I guess someone IS reading this blog after all...

Thanks to my old friend at yougeek.ca I have learned that my blog has been quoted by another. The author(s) of TNG/TNG has pointed others my way.

Please, make the choice to go back to the table and reopen negotiations so that you can chose to reopen your doors to your employees. Everyday you chose ot
