For some strange reason my neck has been bugging me for the past couple of weeks. It has done this before, but usually it has something to do with straining it playing sports. Since that's not even a thing for me this summer, I don't know what's going on... but I do know I hate it. This morning I woke up and could barely move my head and arms, so I decided to take a bit of a sabbatical from the keyboard. I'm just going to be at my desk long enough to post a short blog piece then I think I am going to have to get a heating pad on it. If it keeps up, I could have a real problem. I guess we'll see how it goes.

On a more sombre note, I read a horrifying article in the Star online today about Marineland in Niagara Falls and the condition of many, if not all, of their animals. As I mentioned in my most recent blog piece about the Zoo, "I do not care for circuses or any environment where animals are on display for purely entertainment purposes." Marineland fits this description to a T and I have only ever visited there once in my life (and never shall return). I don't have the heart to write a longer piece about this tragedy just now, but once more information comes to light I guarantee you I will. Today I just wanted to raise a little awareness of what's happening there. Good people are starting to rally; perhaps by the time I write a full piece changes will already have been made. But the only change I would really be happy with is the closure of Marineland completely. I do not care for performing animals at the best of times and this is most certainly not the best of times.
