FORD CANADA INCORPORATED
August 17, 1904 - Windsor, Ontario. Canada
Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd. was incorporated near Windsor, Ontario. The American company was expanding into its first country outside of the U.S., little more than a year after organizing in America on 16 Jun 1903, and selling its first Model A Ford car on 23 Jul 1903. On 10 Aug 1904, Henry Ford had signed an agreement with Canadian entrepreneur Gordon McGregor who started, on 10 Oct 1904, making Fords at his wagon works, with 17 employees. In its first fiscal year, 117 Ford cars were built in Canada. McGregor's persistance paid off. Boosted by Ford's meteoric rise, he became Windor's preeminent industrialist. A century later, Ford's output in Canada had risen to about half a million vehicles a year, employing more than 15,000 people.

No Man is Above the Law
by Theodore Roosevelt
"..."No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor."..."
The wealth of the nation
by Earth Day, Gaylord Nelson
"...The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity that'as all there is. That'as the whole economy. That'as where all the economic activity and jobs come from. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world...."

about Eyesight Myth and Fact
Myth: Staring at a computer screen all day is harmful to the eyes.
Fact: Spending the day staring at a screen can tire or strain your eyes, but it will not hurt them. Make sure lighting doesn't create a glare on your screen. When spending long periods at your keyboard, take a break now and then to rest your eyes to reduce fatigue. Also, don't forget to blink. Your eyes need to stay lubricated to feel comfortable.
about Stolen On New Year's
More vehicles are stolen on New Year's Day than any other holiday throughout the year. (So does that mean thieves are having their last fling before changing their ways or are they trying for a big score to start the New Year?)
