Enjoying life, off the hamster wheel

It’s Snowing!

It’s snowing in Vancouver! It’s so pretty! Big, fat, heavy, wet flakes. It will probably turn to rain before the night is through, sadly. But it’s pretty none-the-less. UBC has a webcam with all the action here.

By the way, did you know that of the 308 seats in Canada’s House of Commons (our Parliament), 64 are held by women? That’s almost 21% of the House! Rock on, baby! Canada: A GREAT role model, eh?

I’m adding Sweden’s parliament’s gender stats here as well. Just so’s ya know, the info comes from: Sveriges Riksdag Out of a total of 349 seats, 165 are held by women, for a total percent of 47.3%. Well, I guess it helps that they’ve got more than 4 parties in the house. Looks like they’ve got 7. Ahh…. choices, choices…
