    I like your sense of humor, but then my winter fun is to build “Donner Party” snowmen on my front yard . Slows down traffic on my street!

    Well, this story has an interesting twist. As usual, I managed to incorporate enough typos to attract the editing cops and I apologize for that it plagues my work. For those of you kind enough to struggle through the thread thank you for your time. Also, it is not in any way shape or form an exercise in political correctness, but why should it be? It did receive one critique that basically boiled down to someone who did not appreciate me criticizing his friends at Parks Canada but no specific complaint or error in fact aside from that. It also received to date a little over six hundred views by people who liked it or found it amusing. Then it was censured. It was blocked from the Ontario Archaeological Societies facebook page the reason given was that it contains "nude" pictures. If you have checked out the thread you see there is no basis, in fact to this, there are no nude pictures in the story but OAS receives government funding so I am sure you can figure out what is going on. If you wonder why change and progress is so slow I think I have an answer. The problem will not go away by removing it from a web page. I continue to advocate for discussion and public accountability and thank the 600+ who did read it and liked it prior to centure.

    On further reflection, typos and all I still find parts of this paper amusing and I hope you do too, While what you write is important were you write also has to consider. If I had perfected and published it in a newspaper or magazine it's literary form would immediately be recognized as satire, on the internet, it has been confused with "the author having a mind melt." Regardless of your point of view, there are serious issues here. Parks Canada's underwater archaeology is highly questionable and this is bad for diving as well as archaeology.

    Next snowstorm in MA, or maybe an ice lake scene, complete with Blue-glowing eyed ice dragon being raised by Game of Thrones Zombies. Then my hubby and kids will help with the build!
