Child molesting and rape put them at the bottom of the prison social order. They would be killed if housed with regular convicts.

This photo should also be titled Condo Construction #12. It belongs with my continuing photo project with it's start as hole in the ground to a 19 story building. Most of the work is finished on the outside but there is still a lot to do on the inside. Each completed floor gets lights on over night. I am looking forward to when the whole building is lit up from top to bottom. It should be an awesome sight.

Metropolitan United Church

Andy | Sunday, November 27, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
One of the largest churches in downtown Toronto, welcomes people of any faith or orientation to join in the Sunday services. On January 30, 1928 the church caught fire and was gutted. The tower with its 23 bells, the narthex, the rear portion of the balcony and the brick walls were all that could be saved. It was rebuilt in 1929, incorporating most of the original walls, tower, narthex, and much of the stained glass.

An amateur photographer was invited to dinner with friends and took along a few pictures to show the hostess. She looked at the photos and commented, "These are very good! You must have a good camera." He didn't make any comment, but, as he was leaving to go home he said, "That was a really delicious meal! You must have some very good pots."

Lest We Forget

Andy | Friday, November 11, 2016 | | Best Blogger Tips
Canadians recognize Remembrance Day, originally called Armistice Day, every 11 November at 11 a.m. It marks the end of hostilities during the First World War and an opportunity to recall all those who have served in the nation’s defence. Pictured above is Lancaster Bomber KB882. It has been sitting outside in Edmundston, New Brunswich since 1964, when the city bought it for $1,600. Over the years, the aircraft deteriorated, and birds had built nests inside and rust had set in. Built in Ontario in 1944, it's one of the last surviving Lancaster Bomber. After surviving its missions over war-torn Europe, (more than 3,300 of them were lost in battle) KB882 served another 12 years with RCAF 408 Squadron mapping Canada’s high Arctic and keeping an eye on Soviet ice stations. There is hope that a buyer can found that would put the effort into restoring the bomber.
