A Lady's Prerogative For Hallow's Eve: What Superstition Wields (Finished First Draft: Artwork to come)

This is my yearly Halloween story, though last year I kind of wove the Halloween and Santa Claus story into one if you remember and came up with a funny bit involving Barris and Sato early on in their friendship as they have guests for the seasonal holiday. This year I'm bringing Halloween and A Lady's Prerogative home to my country of Canada and my home province of Ontario. This story takes place in Ontario, though far north up into territory occupied by far fewer than in the Great Lakes region of Canada (and the United States). I hope that you enjoy it. As a side note, I recently did a rant post (the Rant-zilla post if you recall as it was the last one) really attacking the problem of harassment, as it has been plaguing me for years in both the online world (very covertly) and the offline world very overtly. Everything I stated in that post I meant with all of my heart and being, and I will not apologize for any of it. This has already gone way too far, and a post of that nat

Google Docs Voter's Research Helper

Here's a spreadsheet I concocted that will help those doing the last minute crunch research to select their vote can use to make the task much easier.

Just click the link and you'll receive your own copy of the spreadsheet.

2019 Canadian Voter's Helper Spreadsheet

There. No excuses not to vote.

I've been doing spreadsheets for a long time both for business and employment use and for personal use as well. A friend of mine had mentioned using Google docs, which I've been a member of for years but have never worked on any protects using them. This is in fact the first time I've used Google Docs. The spreadsheet is very much like any spreadsheet I've ever used (Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice Calc and OpenOffice Calc). My Dad is apparently an Excel wizard so this stuff would be pretty basic to him. Still its very utilitarian.

Its amazing how many people jumped at me to keep this quiet, like they don't want people to know that I vote and file taxes. Perhaps they're trying to hide someone else's identity on mine who really doesn't vote or file taxes?

I hope that helps.
