So this morning I visit my local daily newspaper online...

Sad to discover an old childhood friend had passed away at age 62...

But what else do I spy???????

Ikea has decided to build a store in my town...

My response?   zzzzz  zzz  zzzzzzzzzz   zz

But the news papers' Facebook comment section currently shows more than 36 hundred responses...

Three-thousand-six-hundred-plus likes and loves and thumbs up and whatever...  

Just goes to show you...

Kathleen Wynne can F you up the ass...

Trudeau can turn our border guards into bell hops...

And all the masses really care about is a brand new Ikea store....

I see the same thing in a a local Facebook community group.

A fretful soccer mom wants to get her hair dyed and she will get 78 responses on where to go.

Someone starts a discussion about an event that happened at a town council meeting....crickets....

The Conservative party is going to redefine how to ruin Ontario once elected.
People are just too busy highlighting all the mistakes the Liberals made to care to notice
where the Ontario Conservatives will steer us wrong.
407 NEVER should have been sold. (yeah yeah, I know, where's my proof of cost to taxpayers in 30 years to maintain the road...but still) 
TAP WATER IN ONTARIO IS TO BE SAFE TO DRINK AT ALL TIMES NO MATTER WHAT NO EXCUSES
I can go on...and on...should I write a book? The title will be DO NOT vote Conservative in Ontario.

NDP is the only way to go on a 4 year "protest vote" plan if anyone is intelligent enough to realize that.

Hopefully in 4 years time the Liberals will have learned their lesson, but never gaining anything more than a minority government for a good long time...

Do you have any history of shopping at Ikea?

I shop Ikea for smaller things, as in, not furniture. 
That's not to say I won't buy furniture there somewhere down the road, it just means that currently, I love Ikea for the smaller things. 
Anything from a simple bath mat to various other useful things that are easy to take home on public transit.

The best part though is their "low cost" cafeteria. (hint: I also prefer to shop in store, NOT online)

I wish they could open a new Ikea store in Scarborough or downtown Toronto...that would be nice.

Side note: Speaking of Bath Mats, ALL Bath Mats are 20% off at Ikea from October 12-15, 2017.

It's the same thing on the air.  Calls were slow one day so as a joke to ourselves mostly we asked if a grilled cheese needs ketchup or not.  The phones lit up for the entire hour.

I recall back in days of Yore when a GTA talk host shooting the breeze with is producer about movies; The producer mentioned something about movies with trains in them and his favourite movie with a train.

The host, as a total joke, decided to dedicate a segment to movies with trains and it was a jam packed hour.

A couple of weeks ago, Tom McConnell did a segment on CKTB about products whose names have become generic and are now referred to by that moniker by just about everyone. Among the examples: Kleenex, Xerox, Roller blades, and Band-Aids, all of which were once copyrighted but worked their way into the language.

The calls came fast, furious and endlessly throughout the rest of the show, with callers and texters coming up with other examples of this phenomenon. And it was pretty entertaining stuff!
