Stingers to the Organization that broke my son’s heart  for booking a swim meet on his birthday after we booked it a month ago.

Stars to the Businesses that Charge Albertans 12 per cent tax.  If you don’t like the tax – stay in your own province!

Stingers to wasps. They know why.

Smokie hot dog Stars to those that supported the Sobeys Cops for Kids BBQ – the volunteers, quilters, Sobeys, chef Cam Dawes, and the Jungle Room for the balloon donation!

Stars to Blane for fixing my son’s iPod. He made a little boy very happy and thankful.

Stars to the Oszust family and Ken for helping my daughter BLISS when she crashed her bike on Golden Upper Donald Road.

A sky full of stingers to that noisy Sky Dive Plane … my God .. can’t even enjoy the peace and quite of our beautiful backcountry.

A flower shop full of Stars to Deb and Bob at Flowers From Home for making my day . The world needs more people like you.

Stingers to the trains that stop when they’re blocking the road…then start again, then stop before they’ve passed the road.
