    2020-21 Canadian Women News & Updates

    While I agree with everything else, "Top Ten" Jen first cracked the top 10 in 2000 (not 2002) when she place 8th (6th in the long program). Also, I think some of our current women are actually reasonably close to international tech standards, if we take the Russia out of the equation. And I bet...

    Feral Cat Advice Needed

    I totally agree. Do check if there's a local feral rescue group in your area, as they usually have folks who will foster pregnant ferals and find homes for the kittens.

    Other Ladies Nagano 98

    Shooting in Nova Scotia

    Re the gap in time, reading between the lines of this article in the Globe today with an officer who was on the scene, I think the RCMP mistakenly believe the assailant had committed suicide and was "contained."

    I've never been able to find a video of this but the French team of Sauri & Stifunin's 2001 FD might qualify. In any case, the narrative that my significant other and I made up about the Free dance's backstory during 2001 world's was definitely voidy.;)
