After lunch we drove along the picturesque riverside parkway, stopping to check out the new golf course at A’SmugglerA•s Glen.A“ It had been carved out of the Pines and rock.
We walked by and admired a casting of females in bronze, a tribute to the early leaders of the Canadian Suffragette movement. Behind the Main Parliament building sits an elegant Library, circular in shape and faced in brown brick.
From Parliament Hill, we walked along busy Rideau Street, passing another eye catcher in stone.
If you here the name A’RideauA“ mentioned several times, it is because it is on many named places in Ottawa.
Next to the VeteranA•s Monument is an architectural vision in steel, glass and gray granite.
The Cathedral of Notre Dame and a seminary, both on the PLace De Armes, had been their earliest constructions.
The business district has broad boulevards and many, many new glass-faced and towering office buildings. The huge complex of the Montreal hospital completes the crowded space on Rue Sherbrooke, just below the A’Mount,A“ for which Montreal is named. We walked along the busy River front street of Rue Commune, watching the horse drawn buggies and bicycles compete with congested people and auto traffic. We ventured into Simons and took the escalator down into the A’underground city.A“ It is a connected stretch, of all of the stores above ground, with many more food courts , coffee shops and shopping centers. La starbucks and then climbed up to the surface, like some latter day Eloi, from the movie Time Machine.
I asked the hotel concierge to book us reservations at the A’Auberge Vieux PortA“ on Rue Commune, for dinner.
After the fireworks, like a huge receding tidal flow, the many thousands of visitors began to recede and exit the old port area. Gboth had to figure out the French translation for the English idiom A’to each his own.A“ It was sunny and pleasant out. The first floor contained 18th century French furnishings and a panoply of silver ware and Canadian tea services from the 1800A•s.
We descended, by elevator, to the basement and walked across the street using the underground tunnel. We watched and enjoyed the street performers and the thousands of strollers as we finished lunch.
It was late afternoon as we walked back to the hotel, stopping by for wine and cheese in Suite #701. I make this explanation for the reason that without it many readers would suppose that all these characters were trying to talk alike and not succeeding. YOU don't know about me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain't no matter. Now the way that the book winds up is this: A Tom and me found the money that the robbers hid in the cave, and it made us rich. The widow she cried over me, and called me a poor lost lamb, and she called me a lot of other names, too, but she never meant no harm by it. Her sister, Miss Watson, a tolerable slim old maid, with goggles on, had just come to live with her, and took a set at me now with a spelling-book.
I set down again, a-shaking all over, and got out my pipe for a smoke; for the house was all as still as death now, and so the widow wouldn't know.
WE went tiptoeing along a path amongst the trees back towards the end of the widow's garden, stooping down so as the branches wouldn't scrape our heads. Tom he made a sign to mea€”kind of a little noise with his moutha€”and we went creeping away on our hands and knees. As soon as Tom was back we cut along the path, around the garden fence, and by and by fetched up on the steep top of the hill the other side of the house. We went to a clump of bushes, and Tom made everybody swear to keep the secret, and then showed them a hole in the hill, right in the thickest part of the bushes.
Everybody said it was a real beautiful oath, and asked Tom if he got it out of his own head.
They talked it over, and they was going to rule me out, because they said every boy must have a family or somebody to kill, or else it wouldn't be fair and square for the others. Then they all stuck a pin in their fingers to get blood to sign with, and I made my mark on the paper. Little Tommy Barnes was asleep now, and when they waked him up he was scared, and cried, and said he wanted to go home to his ma, and didn't want to be a robber any more. So they all made fun of him, and called him cry-baby, and that made him mad, and he said he would go straight and tell all the secrets. Ben Rogers said he couldn't get out much, only Sundays, and so he wanted to begin next Sunday; but all the boys said it would be wicked to do it on Sunday, and that settled the thing. WELL, I got a good going-over in the morning from old Miss Watson on account of my clothes; but the widow she didn't scold, but only cleaned off the grease and clay, and looked so sorry that I thought I would behave awhile if I could. Pap he hadn't been seen for more than a year, and that was comfortable for me; I didn't want to see him no more. I thought all this over for two or three days, and then I reckoned I would see if there was anything in it. I went down to the front garden and clumb over the stile where you go through the high board fence. Miss Watson's nigger, Jim, had a hair-ball as big as your fist, which had been took out of the fourth stomach of an ox, and he used to do magic with it.
I stood a-looking at him; he set there a-looking at me, with his chair tilted back a little.
He took it and bit it to see if it was good, and then he said he was going down town to get some whisky; said he hadn't had a drink all day.
Next day he was drunk, and he went to Judge Thatcher's and bullyragged him, and tried to make him give up the money; but he couldn't, and then he swore he'd make the law force him.
Although US buyers aren't getting the A5 Sportback, Audi has unveiled the sportier version, the S5 Sportback.
The S5 Sportback is powered by the same supercharged 3.0L V6 as the S4 that will also soon replace the V8 engine in the S5 coupe. Visually the S5 Sportback is differentiated from the lesser powered A5 Sportback by side mirrors in aluminum trim, a single frame grille, S-design aluminum wheels, and quad tailpipes. The S5 Sportback goes on sale in Europe in Spring 2010 with a starting price of 57,900 Euros. The abbreviation "S" stands for sports and also high efficiency - characteristic Audi features. The Audi S5 Sportback is powered by a three-liter V6 with a mechanically driven supercharger. The six-cylinder unit, which displaces 2,995 cc, embodies the Audi philosophy that performance and efficiency are not mutually exclusive but rather complement each other perfectly.
The leading position of the S5 Sportback is further underscored by its drivetrain technology.
The high-end rear-axle differential transfers the forces at the rear axle between the wheels as needed for even greater dynamism and stability. Inside, electrically adjustable S-design sport seats covered in Silk Nappa leather, a black or silver headliner and brushed aluminum inlays underscore the dynamic style of the high-end model.
The Audi S5 Sportback will be arriving at German dealerships in spring 2010 with a base price of 57,900 euros. The equipment and data specified in this document refer to the model range offered in Germany. The previous post in this blog was Lamborghini Reventon Roadster Officially Unveiled and Goes for 1.1 Million Euro.
23, 2012 7:08 AM ESTTweetEmailA few years ago, James Mollison began taking photos of children around the world and their rooms.
He lives in the province of Yunnan in southwest China with his parents, sister, and grandfather.
She lives with her parents, and her guinea pig and fish, in a detached house on Long Island, New York.
He belongs to the Rendille tribe, who live a semi-nomadic life in the harsh regions of the Kaisut Desert. The rascally Americans had burned the place, during the War of 1812, to shut the British military supply line down. He was the unlucky British Subaltern who had been routed from town by the rascally Americans, before they torched everything.
We enjoyed the meal and our surroundings, counting ourselves lucky to be here hale and healthy, sipping wine and enjoying a meal at a nice resort. We walked along the River for a bit then sat in front of our rooms, admiring the visage of the River and the comings and goings along it. Check-in was a bit hectic, as the beleaguered valet scurried to the hotel lot to retrieve exiting cars and park incoming. It sits strategically on the Ottawa River, astride the border of Ontario and Quebec Provinces.
In 1867, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Ontario and New Brunswick had been merged into the New Nation of Canada. Then we wandered a bit enjoying the spectacle of a NationA•s Capitol in Summer, tourist throngs enjoying their heritage. The Chateau Fairmont Laurier is a turreted fairy style castle in the grand manner of the Canadian Rail Road mega hotels. The British had originally constructed the canal as a system for military transport from 1826-1832. Canada is self sufficient in its oil needs, getting most of its supply from the oil fields in Alberta. A’ (Darcy had beena founder of the Candian Republic but was assiassinated near Parliament Hill in 1867.) It sits at the end of the Sparks St. They marched, wheeled and stood at arms in synchronized movement to the delight of the crowd. Finally, the pipers wailed out the stirring melody of A’Oh Canada,A“ the Canadian National Anthem.
For $6, we entered this stone and glass pyramid, marveling at the size and grandeur of the facility. It is an interesting portrait of native Canadian life on the far shores of the Arctic Ocean.
Throngs of tourists were already headed up to Parliament Hill to watch the nightly sound and light show projected onto parliament Building. We walked back along Elgin to our hotel, where we settled in with our books and waited for Morpheus to claim us. A party of 39 French Missionaries, Sulpician Fathers from Paris, under the direction of Monsignor Maisoneauve comprised the entourage. It is a single-story collection of pricey artistA•s shops, featuring hand-made pottery, jewelry, paintings and other items for the discerning shopper. It really is an A’underground cityA“ that frozen Montrealers can use during the harsh Winter. On etage quatre, we found an entire collection of Dutch and Italian painters from the 1600A•s and 1700A•s.
A monsoon rainstorm, the night before, had given us water in the basement, and that awful armpit smell of mold, as a return present.
The shadings have not been done in a haphazard fashion, or by guesswork; but painstakingly, and with the trustworthy guidance and support of personal familiarity with these several forms of speech.
She put me in them new clothes again, and I couldn't do nothing but sweat and sweat, and feel all cramped up. A She said all a body would have to do there was to go around all day long with a harp and sing, forever and ever. A By and by they fetched the niggers in and had prayers, and then everybody was off to bed. Well, after a long time I heard the clock away off in the town go booma€”booma€”booma€”twelve licks; and all still againa€”stiller than ever.
A Well, likely it was minutes and minutes that there warn't a sound, and we all there so close together.
A He leaned his back up against a tree, and stretched his legs out till one of them most touched one of mine.
A Tom said he slipped Jim's hat off of his head and hung it on a limb right over him, and Jim stirred a little, but he didn't wake.
A We went down the hill and found Jo Harper and Ben Rogers, and two or three more of the boys, hid in the old tanyard.
A He said, some of it, but the rest was out of pirate-books and robber-books, and every gang that was high-toned had it. A But Tom give him five cents to keep quiet, and said we would all go home and meet next week, and rob somebody and kill some people. A They agreed to get together and fix a day as soon as they could, and then we elected Tom Sawyer first captain and Jo Harper second captain of the Gang, and so started home.


A I says to myself, if a body can get anything they pray for, why don't Deacon Winn get back the money he lost on pork? A He used to always whale me when he was sober and could get his hands on me; though I used to take to the woods most of the time when he was around. A He said there was loads of them there, anyway; and he said there was A-rabs there, too, and elephants and things.
A I got an old tin lamp and an iron ring, and went out in the woods and rubbed and rubbed till I sweat like an Injun, calculating to build a palace and sell it; but it warn't no use, none of the genies come. I had been to school most all the time and could spell and read and write just a little, and could say the multiplication table up to six times seven is thirty-five, and I don't reckon I could ever get any further than that if I was to live forever. Whenever I got uncommon tired I played hookey, and the hiding I got next day done me good and cheered me up. A I reached for some of it as quick as I could to throw over my left shoulder and keep off the bad luck, but Miss Watson was in ahead of me, and crossed me off.
A His hair was long and tangled and greasy, and hung down, and you could see his eyes shining through like he was behind vines.
When I'd read about a half a minute, he fetched the book a whack with his hand and knocked it across the house. When he had got out on the shed he put his head in again, and cussed me for putting on frills and trying to be better than him; and when I reckoned he was gone he come back and put his head in again, and told me to mind about that school, because he was going to lay for me and lick me if I didn't drop that. So he took him to his own house, and dressed him up clean and nice, and had him to breakfast and dinner and supper with the family, and was just old pie to him, so to speak. A He said he reckoned a body could reform the old man with a shotgun, maybe, but he didn't know no other way.
The supercharger sits in the 90 degree V formed by the banks of the cylinders and produces up to 0.8 bar of pressure.
The engine delivers a constant 440 Nm (324.53 lb-ft) of torque between 2,900 and 5,300 rpm.
The top model comes standard with the seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel drive with a slight rear wheel bias. The front blade and the diffuser, the single-frame grille, the air intakes, the sill strip, the spoiler lip at the rear and the four-tailpipe exhaust system all sport an exclusive design. The pointers in the instrument cluster are illuminated white, and the color driver information system presents the S5 logo when the car is started.
We also have to do paperwork, get freight quotes, call the trucking company, and fax you shipping confirmation.
Call us with what you want and where it’s going and we’ll get you a cost for the pond along with the shipping cost, usually in a couple of hours. DO NOT LET THE POND CRASH TO THE GROUND GETTING IT OFF OF THE TRUCK!  THIS IS NOT COVERED BY OUR WARRANTY. Irkena is now 14 years old and must be circumcised before leaving the community manyatta (settlement). The family has taken security very seriously ever since one of her cousins was kidnapped by a gang.
This means he is banned from going out at night, and must not possess drugs, alcohol, knives, or even a screwdriver.
It sits across the road from where we were staying for the evening, at A’The Glen House resort.A“ It is a small complex, of two story buildings, that sits along a quiet inlet of the St. We checked into our room, #147 of the Hickory Woods section, ($170 night) and then walked down to the water to sit and enjoy the bright sunshine on the river.
We sipped a glass of Cabernet, as we read our books and then drifted off to sleep for a pleasant conversation with Ozzie nelson. It is a six-blocks long string of open air restaurants, tourist shops, street performers and office workers, lolling for lunch or a break. They are an eye catching combination of London and Paris in the 1600A•s, though constructed here in the 1860A•s.
It had originally been founded by ex patriate Americans, fleeing the American Revolution in the 1770A•s.
I wrote up my notes as we sipped a glass of cabernet and then drifted into a conversation with Ozzie Nelson. We settled into our room, read for a time and then drifted into the welcome abyss of sleep.
After coffee, we found the A’Canadian Hall.A“ It is an interesting collection of rural and Winter tableaus celebrating Beau Canada. It is a two story , comfortable place with brick walls, wrought iron railings and lots of charm.
It thrived as a fur trading center between Europe and all of the interior of North America. The Casino, Dome and stadium stand against the skyline as markers of the cityA•s prominence. The temp was warm and in the 80A•s out now, but in the Winter, this place is frigid, with temps falling well below zero. We sat in dimly lit elegance in the 5 star basement restaurant.Obviously our hotel concierge had mistaken us for people of means instead of the casual types that we are. Hebert, Suzor-Cote, Paul Peel, Helen McNichols and others were represented in a delightful gallery of oils that pleases the eye.
We cranked up the air conditioning and drove to a nearby Tim HortonA•s for soup and sandwiches, while the condo cooled off. Pretty soon I heard a twig snap down in the dark amongst the treesa€”something was a stirring. A But I said no; he might wake and make a disturbance, and then they'd find out I warn't in.
Afterwards Jim said the witches be witched him and put him in a trance, and rode him all over the State, and then set him under the trees again, and hung his hat on a limb to show who done it. A So we unhitched a skiff and pulled down the river two mile and a half, to the big scar on the hillside, and went ashore.
A It swore every boy to stick to the band, and never tell any of the secrets; and if anybody done anything to any boy in the band, whichever boy was ordered to kill that person and his family must do it, and he mustn't eat and he mustn't sleep till he had killed them and hacked a cross in their breasts, which was the sign of the band. A I was most ready to cry; but all at once I thought of a way, and so I offered them Miss Watsona€”they could kill her.
A Well, about this time he was found in the river drownded, about twelve mile above town, so people said. A They had come up from the quarry and stood around the stile a while, and then went on around the garden fence. A So I went to him that night and told him pap was here again, for I found his tracks in the snow. A And after supper he talked to him about temperance and such things till the old man cried, and said he'd been a fool, and fooled away his life; but now he was a-going to turn over a new leaf and be a man nobody wouldn't be ashamed of, and he hoped the judge would help him and not look down on him. The five-door coupe is powered by a highly efficient, supercharged V6 engine with an output of 245 kW (333 hp). Two downstream intercoolers lower the temperature of the compressed intake air for improved filling of the combustion chambers. The side mirror housings shine in aluminum look and the xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights and rear lights are standard.
A leather multifunction sport steering wheel with aluminum-look shift paddles and a sport selection switch for the S tronic underscore the sporty aspect of this model. Give us as much lead time as you can because if a pond is not made it can take a few days to get into production. Striking and unsentimental, Mollison's work shows that wherever a child lies down at night is not so much a retreat from as a reflection of the world outside.
She usually sleeps on the floor, but now that she is in the later stages of her pregnancy, her mother has swapped places and allowed her to sleep in the bed.
The average family has nine children, but Tzvika has just one sister and two brothers, with whom he shares his room. Irkena will then become a morani (young warrior), and live in the bush with other warriors. Lewis has Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder and has also been diagnosed with schizophrenia.
The fir trees, and the bucolic scenery of the area, much belie the horrendous snowfalls that blanket the area in Winter. Maybe that's why Indians and British soldiers, from the ButlerA•s Rangers, burned Buffalo to the ground a few months later.
We listened to a musical group, watched another street actor and then browsed a few shops, buying some postcards and stamps. The 1867 Act of Confederation, by the British Parliament, had established Canada as a separate nation.
Roof lines, flourished in black wrought iron, and the cathedral shaped windows reflected the beauty of the French influence on the two flanking buildings. We looked out, from our perch on Parliament hill, and could see the twin silver spires of the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the beginnings of A’Embassy RowA“ along Sussex Street. We drove by the enormous Beau Arts Center, the huge War Museum and the much used Museum of Civilization. Noting the the waterfall on the Ottawa River, he remarked that it looked like the curtains (Rideau) in his apartment in Paris. Americans had looked down the sights of their rifles at these men in two wars and fought alongside of them in a dozen others. It is carved from the Northwest Territories and is peopled by native Inuits along the Arctic shores of Canada.
We found and entered the A’Blue Cactus Grille.A“ It is open and airy like Sloppy JoeA•s Grille in Key West.
At Darcy Mc GeeA•s Irish Pub, we stood for a time and listened to the Sons of Scotland play some stirring music on their bag pipes. We got our tickets at the kiosk and boarded a delightful, open-air, double-decker bus for the ride.($35 each) it was 80 degrees, cloudy and comfortable out. From 1715 through 1815 the small settlement had been surrounded by a stone wall, like cities in medieval Europe. In 1759, at the climactic battle of Montreal (fought in Quebec City) France lost all of Canada to the English. To combat the harsh temperatures, the city had developed over 33 km of A’underground.A“ Two underground boulevards, paralleling busy Rue Ste.
We climbed down from our lofty perch and sought out our chatty van driver for a ride back to the Hotel Place De Armes.
The Main altar is a series of gilded carvings, on three levels, depicting various religious themes. On this end of the waterfront, sits a distinctive tower clock, It rests on a point overlooking the Cartier Bridge and the St. We stopped at a Burger King, for bottles of Eau Dasani, and let our body temperatures cool down. On Rue Francis Xavier, we found something promising called A’Cafe De Mateo.A“ It was hot and we were tiring. It seemed that half of Montreal was in the old port area having dinner and getting ready for the fire works. This massive Cathedral holds a smaller version of the enormous, four-collumned Throne of St. We sat for a time in the PLace de Armes, watching the interesting throngs wander to and fro. We chose the outside patio of A’Le Grande TerraceA“ and settled in for Caesar salads with Salmon.
We retreated to our room, where we had cheese, croissants and finished off the Mondavi Cabernet as we read our books and awaited sleep. A Well, Judge Thatcher he took it and put it out at interest, and it fetched us a dollar a day apiece all the year rounda€”more than a body could tell what to do with. A Then I set down in a chair by the window and tried to think of something cheerful, but it warn't no use. A Miss Watson's big nigger, named Jim, was setting in the kitchen door; we could see him pretty clear, because there was a light behind him.
Then Tom said he hadn't got candles enough, and he would slip in the kitchen and get some more. A And next time Jim told it he said they rode him down to New Orleans; and, after that, every time he told it he spread it more and more, till by and by he said they rode him all over the world, and tired him most to death, and his back was all over saddle-boils. Tom poked about amongst the passages, and pretty soon ducked under a wall where you wouldn't a noticed that there was a hole. And nobody that didn't belong to the band could use that mark, and if he did he must be sued; and if he done it again he must be killed. A We used to hop out of the woods and go charging down on hog-drivers and women in carts taking garden stuff to market, but we never hived any of them.
A He said if I warn't so ignorant, but had read a book called Don Quixote, I would know without asking. A I started out, after breakfast, feeling worried and shaky, and wondering where it was going to fall on me, and what it was going to be.
A But he said HE was satisfied; said he was boss of his son, and he'd make it warm for HIM.
Power is delivered to the wheels via the seven-speed S tronic and quattro drive; the innovative sport differential is available as an option.
The spontaneous response, the powerful thrust and sonorous sound make for a thrilling driving experience. The metallic structure comprising countless steel fibers feels slightly rough - an extraordinary haptic experience.
She first became interested at the age of three, when she saw a television ad featuring karate.


Her brother Mohammed killed himself and 23 civilians in a suicide-bomb attack against the Israelis in 1996. He is hoping to use his crossbow during the next hunting season as he has become tired of using a gun.
During the month before he is circumcised, Irkena kills as many birds as possible with his handmade catapult, and hangs the corpses round his head as a status symbol, signifying his maturity and skill at hunting. In his spare time, apart from playing the cello and kickball, Jaime likes to study his finances on the Citibank website. His aggressive behaviour has led to his being excluded from his special school seven times. It lies on the East end of Lake Ontario and gets the same A’lake effectA“ snow fall that Buffalo gets from Lake Erie. It is a marvelous Queen Anne style Inn, with rear porches, porticos and a steeply gabled roof line. The surrounding countryside is rural, with conical silos, the odd brace of horses and farm houses dotting the countryside.
The green copper roofs, waving Maple leaf flags and crowds of tourists gave it a holiday flavor. He has little actual official power, but is the ceremonial representative of Queen Elizabeth in Canada. Then, the departing troops lifted their colors and marched off down Rideau and Elgin to their barracks, pipers piping and drums drumming. We walked back to the hotel, had coffee in the outdoor star bucks and then retreated to out air conditioned room for a glass of Cabernet and a conversation with Ozzie Nelson.
Historians say that at first neither knew what the land comprised, or indeed wanted to own it, but fate gave it to the English. Catherine, have emerged as shopping centers, featuring bistros, cafes and all other forms of urban commerce. McGill University, founded in 1821, is the major presence here, with over 20,000 students. We sat there for a bit and then retired to our room, where I wrote up my notes, and enjoyed a glass of cabernet.
Porno shops, strip joints and sleezy bars announced that this is the place to come and slum in Montreal. We wandered back to Rue Francis Xavier and stopped in the small Cafe De Mateo, that we had noticed earlier in the day. Today would be A’une beau jour.A“ We prepped for the day, enjoying the luxurious amenities of this grand suite. When you got to the table you couldn't go right to eating, but you had to wait for the widow to tuck down her head and grumble a little over the victuals, though there warn't really anything the matter with them,a€”that is, nothing only everything was cooked by itself. A I asked her if she reckoned Tom Sawyer would go there, and she said not by a considerable sight.
A Jim was monstrous proud about it, and he got so he wouldn't hardly notice the other niggers. A We went along a narrow place and got into a kind of room, all damp and sweaty and cold, and there we stopped.
A And if anybody that belonged to the band told the secrets, he must have his throat cut, and then have his carcass burnt up and the ashes scattered all around, and his name blotted off of the list with blood and never mentioned again by the gang, but have a curse put on it and be forgot forever.
A Living in a house and sleeping in a bed pulled on me pretty tight mostly, but before the cold weather I used to slide out and sleep in the woods sometimes, and so that was a rest to me.
A There is ways to keep off some kinds of bad luck, but this wasn't one of them kind; so I never tried to do anything, but just poked along low-spirited and on the watch-out. A Jim got out his hair-ball and said something over it, and then he held it up and dropped it on the floor.
A The old man said that what a man wanted that was down was sympathy, and the judge said it was so; so they cried again. Then they tucked the old man into a beautiful room, which was the spare room, and in the night some time he got powerful thirsty and clumb out on to the porch-roof and slid down a stanchion and traded his new coat for a jug of forty-rod, and clumb back again and had a good old time; and towards daylight he crawled out again, drunk as a fiddler, and rolled off the porch and broke his left arm in two places, and was most froze to death when somebody found him after sun-up.
Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system and seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission are standard.
Servotronic speed-sensitive steering is also standard, with dynamic steering optionally available. When he is not out hunting, Joey attends school and enjoys watching television with his pet bearded dragon lizard, Lily.
Lewis has felt happier since taking his medication but resents his curfew because he misses playing outside in the street with his friends.
Alyssa's mother works at McDonald's and her father works at Walmart; everything they earn goes toward bringing up their daughter. Even today many of the settlements, along the 120 miles canal, are peopled by descendants of the original diggers in distinctive irish conclaves.In Winter, the canal is drained to a depth of two feet. Two of the A’toy soldiers,A“ with their red jackets and black bear helmets, stood guard at the gates of the home. The Rideau Canal, the Ottawa River and the government complexes and embassies all create a tapestry of forested urban beauty. It is spacious, airy and luxurious, befitting the arm and the leg that they charge you to stay here.
Much of the old Brownstone mansions, from those who had made it in Montreal, had been converted for college use. It looks like city officials allow A’Le BumsA“ to sleep and congregate on this far stretch of the waterfront.
Laurent and then walked up and into the small but distinctive area known as A’China Town.A“ The requisite signs, in neon red and yellow announcing the lord knows what in Chinese characters, caught our attention.
A perusal of the menu, in French, told us that this was going to be a $300 dinner, with few choices for Vegetarians. A I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. A In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and the things go better. A Here she was a-bothering about Moses, which was no kin to her, and no use to anybody, being gone, you see, yet finding a power of fault with me for doing a thing that had some good in it. A If you are with the quality, or at a funeral, or trying to go to sleep when you ain't sleepya€”if you are anywheres where it won't do for you to scratch, why you will itch all over in upwards of a thousand places.
A Niggers would come miles to hear Jim tell about it, and he was more looked up to than any nigger in that country. A He said there was hundreds of soldiers there, and elephants and treasure, and so on, but we had enemies which he called magicians; and they had turned the whole thing into an infant Sunday-school, just out of spite.
A He had one ankle resting on t'other knee; the boot on that foot was busted, and two of his toes stuck through, and he worked them now and then. A And when they come to look at that spare room they had to take soundings before they could navigate it. If her new baby survives, Erlen is unlikely to return to school as she will need to stay at home to look after it. Most evenings, he spends one hour completing his homework and one hour watching television. She spends four hours a day practicing karate at the studio and also has an hour and a half of school homework each night.
Far to the South, across the St.Lawrence, we could see the dim flashes of lightning illuminating the sky. Only the dull, matte finish of the lethal looking M-16 rifle, that they carried, alerted you to the actual reason for their presence. They were to stand in pairs, in one hour shifts as guards, at the gate of the Governor GeneralA•s house on Sussex street.
Just across from the Cathedral sits the large VeteranA•s Monument, a tribute to CanadaA•s fallen. Tourists were already strolling the small pedestrian walkway, browsing the ducks and other things you usually find in the windows of Chinese restaurants. Eatons, Simons and a score of other big name Canadian retailers were drawing them in by the hundreds.
A Aunt Pollya€”Tom's Aunt Polly, she isa€”and Mary, and the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book, which is mostly a true book, with some stretchers, as I said before. A But Tom Sawyer he hunted me up and said he was going to start a band of robbers, and I might join if I would go back to the widow and be respectable. Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving. A But Tom wanted to resk it; so we slid in there and got three candles, and Tom laid five cents on the table for pay. A Strange niggers would stand with their mouths open and look him all over, same as if he was a wonder. Nearby are the home of the Canadian Premier, Stephen Harper, at 24 Sussex, and several other magnificent mansions, housing various embassies and officials. A film, depicting the early founding of Montreal and its religious history was projected upon the sheets. Then we got out, and I was in a sweat to get away; but nothing would do Tom but he must crawl to where Jim was, on his hands and knees, and play something on him.
A Niggers is always talking about witches in the dark by the kitchen fire; but whenever one was talking and letting on to know all about such things, Jim would happen in and say, "Hm! A I went out in the woods and turned it over in my mind a long time, but I couldn't see no advantage about ita€”except for the other people; so at last I reckoned I wouldn't worry about it any more, but just let it go. It was a 30 minute version of A’La Belle Canada,A“ featuring, in light and sound, the considerable bounty of the Canadian Republic.
Actions in India, South Africa, and other venues of the British Raj, had been supported by Colonials from all members of her Common Wealth. An eccentric monk, Brother Anthony, had taken as his life's work, the task of raising money and building this huge complex in honor of St. Our French wasnA•t good enough to understand much of the rapid fire patter on the French stations.
A Well, I couldn't see no advantage in going where she was going, so I made up my mind I wouldn't try for it. A Pretty soon a spider went crawling up my shoulder, and I flipped it off and it lit in the candle; and before I could budge it was all shriveled up. This miserableness went on as much as six or seven minutes; but it seemed a sight longer than that. A What you know 'bout witches?" and that nigger was corked up and had to take a back seat. A Sometimes the widow would take me one side and talk about Providence in a way to make a body's mouth water; but maybe next day Miss Watson would take hold and knock it all down again. A He never could go after even a turnip-cart but he must have the swords and guns all scoured up for it, though they was only lath and broomsticks, and you might scour at them till you rotted, and then they warn't worth a mouthful of ashes more than what they was before. After the 30 minute film, the sheets dropped and we got to spend 15 minutes wandering around this beautiful edifice. A I didn't need anybody to tell me that that was an awful bad sign and would fetch me some bad luck, so I was scared and most shook the clothes off of me.
A Then I slipped down to the ground and crawled in among the trees, and, sure enough, there was Tom Sawyer waiting for me.
A Jim always kept that five-center piece round his neck with a string, and said it was a charm the devil give to him with his own hands, and told him he could cure anybody with it and fetch witches whenever he wanted to just by saying something to it; but he never told what it was he said to it. A I judged I could see that there was two Providences, and a poor chap would stand considerable show with the widow's Providence, but if Miss Watson's got him there warn't no help for him any more. A I didn't believe we could lick such a crowd of Spaniards and A-rabs, but I wanted to see the camels and elephants, so I was on hand next day, Saturday, in the ambuscade; and when we got the word we rushed out of the woods and down the hill.
I got up and turned around in my tracks three times and crossed my breast every time; and then I tied up a little lock of my hair with a thread to keep witches away. A I reckoned I couldn't stand it more'n a minute longer, but I set my teeth hard and got ready to try.
A Niggers would come from all around there and give Jim anything they had, just for a sight of that five-center piece; but they wouldn't touch it, because the devil had had his hands on it. A I thought it all out, and reckoned I would belong to the widow's if he wanted me, though I couldn't make out how he was a-going to be any better off then than what he was before, seeing I was so ignorant, and so kind of low-down and ornery.
A I told him I had an old slick counterfeit quarter that warn't no good because the brass showed through the silver a little, and it wouldn't pass nohow, even if the brass didn't show, because it was so slick it felt greasy, and so that would tell on it every time.
We sat for 90 minutes as they went through the whole extensive A’customs procedures.A“ We had grown up on the Canadian border and always resented the A’thorough look overA“ by overly officious knuckleheads. A Just then Jim begun to breathe heavy; next he begun to snorea€”and then I was pretty soon comfortable again.
A Jim was most ruined for a servant, because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches. A (I reckoned I wouldn't say nothing about the dollar I got from the judge.) I said it was pretty bad money, but maybe the hair-ball would take it, because maybe it wouldn't know the difference. A large and ornate complex, that now is a functioning gambling Casino, had been the French Pavilion at the WorldA•s Fair. A You do that when you've lost a horseshoe that you've found, instead of nailing it up over the door, but I hadn't ever heard anybody say it was any way to keep off bad luck when you'd killed a spider.
A Jim smelt it and bit it and rubbed it, and said he would manage so the hair-ball would think it was good. A He said he would split open a raw Irish potato and stick the quarter in between and keep it there all night, and next morning you couldn't see no brass, and it wouldn't feel greasy no more, and so anybody in town would take it in a minute, let alone a hair-ball.
