Attention Donald Trump: Canada for Sale

21 Aug
Dear Mr. Trump / Mr. US President, 
We heard about your failed attempt to buy Greenland.
(Some people are so unreasonable) 
However Fear Not!
Canada is wide open!
Most everything in Canada is already owned by outside Countries. 
(No other Country in the World would permit this, but we’re pretty easy) 
SO! Help yourself!
Below I’ve listed some deals you might be interested in. 
BUT you better hurry!!!! 
Because somebody else will probably snap them up
while you’re procrastinating.
Here you go!: 

I’ve done some digital stuff too …

Claudia Cardinale Westerns

Claudia Cardinale only made about 3 Westerns – which is rather startling since she is an Italian actress and was a major Star in Europe during the height of Spaghetti Westerns.

However, when she did her aim was extremely good – starring in 2 of the greatest Westerns ever made: The Professionals and Sergio Leone‘s Once Upon a Time in the West – which many rank as the Top Western of all time.
Not bad at all.

” … Without love, without a cause, we are… *nothing*!
We stay because we believe. We leave because we are disillusioned.
We come back because we are lost. We die because we are committed …”
