Nice day yesterday, high overcast, lots of planes in. We are in a snow fall warning at moment, light snow has started. The good news for us is that the big accumulations are forecast for the Hopedale area.

Last evening had a nice [see pretty picture] schnitzel. I thinly sliced a couple of those pork loins from Northern, seasoned them before the egg wash and fresh breadcrumbs treatment.

Served with a salad and my latest version of German potatoes, I think this version is a keeper if I can remember the ingredients next time I fancy German potatoes.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the big win by Montreal over Pittsburgh last evening. I did not watch it myself but am very aware how much it means to little Francois and others in the family. Two playoff series wins is way beyond most people dreams if they are honest.

Later in de morn: Siutik wants to go for a walk but I am not overjoyed about that. Snow and NNE winds to 55 makes for very uncomfortable stroll.

I did dash down to the stores earlier. You see the store operators were speculating [or rather hoping] yesterday that the food by mail would be sent on on a pro active basis as has been the case for a couple of weeks.

No cigar this week, the produce shelves are all but empty. Wonder where the lack of pro action lays this time.


Later later around noon: Darryl Shiwak of Rigolet is the new first minister of the Nunatsiavut Assembly.

The ministers of different departments will be chosen this afternoon.

Later later later around 6:

Nunatsiavut Executive Council has been formed.

Darryl Shiwak is the New First Minister
Danny Pottle is the New Minister of Finance
William Barbour is the New Minister of Lands and Natural Resources
Johannes Lampe is the New Minister of Culture Recreation and Tourism
Susan Nochasak is... the New Minister of Education and Economic Development
Keith Russell is the New Minister of Health

Pat Ford has been named the New Speaker of the House of Assembly

There are a couple or several potentialy good appointments there.
