BIRTHDAY 2016: MUSIC, SINGING, WINE, FISH AND… DONALD TRUMP

June 28, 2016


By Bernard Bujold – 
The date of 28 June means another year that is added to my life story. 
This year I decided to upset tradition and, instead of “blowing” the candles, I have “lit” them… 
My philosophy of life is simple! I think there are three important moments in life: birth, death and the now. The now moment is an in between two and consists of anecdotes that are sometimes pleasant, sometimes unpleasant, but in any case, these events will pass and become memories. Life events are like doors or windows that open to other doors and windows; other anecdotes of our life story. 
For my birthday in 2016, I had a chance, early on Tuesday morning June 28, 2016, to be wished Happy Birthday with songs and beautiful music, in addition of course of candles and the famous miracle of fish and wine… 
I even had an “magic” appearance by Donald! 
Thank you to everyone for your good wishes and birthday thoughts!

BRITAIN VOTED TO LEAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION AND DONALD TRUMP CELEBRATED BY VISITING HIS NEW GOLF RESSORT

June 25, 2016


By Bernard Bujold – 
Britain has voted to leave the European Union, a historic decision that will reshape the nation’s place in the world. 
Not long after the vote tally was completed, on Friday June 24, 2016, Prime Minister David Cameron resigned. 
This result will have direct consequences in the United States as Barack Obama campaigned with Cameron against the separation. 
The success of the anti open immigration vote in Britain is a big success for Donald Trump in the US who wants also act against open borders. 
From another angle, the decision by the United States Supreme Court against Obama immigration legacy will also put the issue on November’s ballot. 
Donald Trump celebrated the British victory happily but calmly by visiting with his family his new golf resort in Scotland…

PIERRE LALONDE (1941-2016)

June 24, 2016

By Bernard Bujold – 
PIERRE LALONDE was a symbol for an entire generation of Quebecers, including myself. A page of the history of Quebec was turned with his death on Tuesday, June 21- 2016. 
With its weekly program JEUNESSE D’AUJOURD’HUI on channel 10 of Télémétropole, Pierre Lalonde was as important and popular throughout Quebec as a “David Letterman” was among Americans. A unique talent! 
I took this series of photos on June 30, 2003 in the Old Port of Montreal during the celebrations of Canada Day. At the time, while the Prime Minister was Jean Chrétien, ceremonies for July 1 lasted 3 days and the budget was high… 
Pierre Lalonde had marked my teens and I wanted to enjoy his show as well as to get to photograph him. This series of pictures has never been published before now… 
Too bad that I have not made the effort to send him copies but I thought that a star like him was not interested in another series of photos of him during a show. 
Accepts my friendships, dear Pierre Lalonde!

THE ETERNAL LIFE

June 22, 2016


By Bernard Bujold-
The debate over medical assisted suicide is actually a very important issue for Canadian society but what about eternal life and cryopreservation (the name of the technique for freezing human bodies). 
The new novel from the bestselling author Don DeLillo, ZERO K, presents precisely what could be an eternal life for a human who wants to resurrect frozen one day… 
An exceptional novel and a perfect reading for the cottage and summer 2016! 
Have a nice Summer!

THE SUMMER SEASON 2016

June 20, 2016

By Bernard Bujold – 
The summer season 2016 officially begins Monday 20 June at 5 pm. 
Summer is the season of sea and sun and weather forecasters predict a hot 2016 season. 
As regards to the sea, the phrase by William Shakespeare (Julius Caesar) is interesting to apply: 
“… There is a wave on the ocean of life, which if taken at the right time at the shore lead the ship to new lands full of hope and promise; but if it is missed, it will be the failure and misery…” 
GREAT SUMMER at all!

DONALD TRUMP AND THE ROLE OF HERO…

June 18, 2016


By Bernard Bujold – 
I am a fan of Donald Trump because he is representing to me, in my mind and in my values of life, the perfect example of the hero from the positive thinking philosophy. 
His book THE ART OF THE DEAL is a classic of the positive thinking way of life. 
Now, the question is: will he win the election because of that symbol and of this spirit? 
Well, maybe yes, maybe not! We will know it at the end of the challenge. 
Presently, Donald Trump is running behind Hillary Clinton in the survey but not by that much. In politics, a candidate who is slowly losing ground must run against the clock toward the final vote before his advance completely disapear. This is the case of Hillary. She is not gaining ground and have no momentum but Donald is gaining ground, inches by inches. Could he win enough point before the next November election? That is his challenge! He was facing the same situation during the race for the Republican nomination and he succeeded to defeat all the 16 other candidates running against him. 
Usually, any hero, in the positive thinking philosophy or any other philosophies, always get to a wall which he must over come before being able to win and achieve his goal. Donald is presently facing such a wall and, if he is the real hero that he said to be, and that I think he is, he will recoup himself in the coming months and then, over pass Hillary Clinton and win the Presidential election of 2016. 
The end result will be first to elect the new President of the United States but, for me, it will also show if the positive thinking philosophy is working or not! I am convinced that it will work but who knows for sure. In life, and particularly in politics, the future is never predictable at 100%, even by me…
