  1. In Calgary: 69.9 - Co-Op at 38 Street & Country Hills Blvd 70.9 - Shell at 52 Street and Country Hills Blvd.
  2. It's been exactly three months since I've had my last cigarette. That ties my record only to be beaten in the coming hours. I wonder how long I can keep this up, especially during this stressful time during the Covid-19 crisis regarding work and etc.
  3. Halifax Transit - 2019 NovaBus LFS #1318 on Spring Gardens Road as Route 182. This is part of a 35 NovaBus Delivery which were delivered in late 2019 numbered (1300-1334).
  4. KLM has announced that it will retiring it's last remaining seven Boeing 747-400s by the end of March 2020 due to the Covid-19 Crisis as a cost-saving measure. The last of these planes were supposed to last until January 2021. The final day for these planes will be March 26. These birds will be missed! Though, KLM continues to operate 3 747-400F (Cargo) operated by Martinair. It's unsure if those aircraft are due for retirement later in March as well. https://simpleflying.com/klm-early-boeing-747-retirement/ https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-havoc-forces-airlines-to-retire-iconic-planes-sooner-2020-3
  5. Its hit close to home in terms of the economics. Alberta is already in a recession so it isn't helping the situation. My family relies on oil & gas and the airline industry. So at work, we were expected to get our schedules for a five-week cycle between late March and April. Unfortunately, in the airline industry, travel has declined. As a result, we aren't being issued schedules until a few days before the new cycle. It's especially worrying as rumors has it layoffs are going to happen if things don't improve. If the layoffs do happen, we don't know who is going to first be impacted which has gotten everyone paranoid but I wonder how the new hires will be the impacted. If that happens, it includes me as I've only been with my new employer since January. I am stressing out about it as this is my only source of income as I left my previous job for something better. I'll eventually know in the coming days as we continue to get continuous updates regarding the situation. All I hope for is that I still have a job in a couple weeks.
  6. Get comfy while you wait for your mate to finish doing his/her business. Seen at a Museum in Halifax!
  7. I visited Halifax recently and observed the following: 1038 is the Oldest Bus I've seen. It still retains the Metro Transit Livery. 1334 is the newest bus I've seen. Rita Joe is active. (I'm not quite sure when it entered service so just observation. My favorite pic from my trip. Vincent Coleman departing Dartmouth Ferry Terminal on Alderney Street for Downtown Halifax in some of the most strangest weather I've ever come across.
  8. Adding WestJet Encore - Bombardier Dash 8 - Q400 to my list. (YEG-YYC)
  9. Digby Scallops and Local Blonde Ale. I'm in Halifax for the weekend. I figured seafood was appropriate for a first visit.
  10. The All-American Rejects - It Ends Tonight Probably played this song 100 times in the last couple days.
  11. Something I won't ever understand. One of my coworkers is addicted to decaffeinated coffee. He drinks like 8 Cups of it a day and always craves it. I thought it was caffeine that's an addiction. I guess I was wrong.
  12. Calgary - Westbrook Station and Sunalta Stations. Westbrook for being Calgary's only underground station and Sunalta for being elevated five stories above ground. They are simple in design yet are the most unique in the system Edmonton - Probably Bay-Enterprise Square Station as it's the Station I'm most familiar with. (I don't really have a favorite Edmonton Train Station) Vancouver - Waterfront Station. The architecture, location and that it still retains it's use as a train station since its opening.
  13. So I started my new job nearly a month ago and so far, this was one of the best decisions I made in a long time. It was a huge transition where people actually treat you like a human being and all. Well there's one thing that's different. At last my last job, schedules were emailed to you weekly 10 Days in advance. This place, you get your schedule six weeks in advance. All good, until you realize your schedule is on a app that uses Windows 2008 to Operate. So basically, if you are not accessing your schedule at work, you have to install software that makes it compatible with Windows 2017 or something. Funny, for a multi-billion dollar company, they are really behind. If it works, it works I guess.
  14. A High Fever. Still am recovering from that. Aside being bedridden on Christmas, I did actually get a couple things this year. - A Nice Dress Shirt - A couple gift cards - To celebrate that I got a new job. I picked up this WestJet 737 Max in 1/100 Scale. Photo is a scale comparison of the 1/100, 1/200 and 1/400 scales of the Max.
  15. Haven't gotten any scam calls until now. Ordered a couple things off Ebay and right after, the calls are going like crazy. I thought leaving my voicemail to me when I was 14 would deter the scammers. It did for awhile. Now they are calling like 10 times a day with the numbers mostly local. I thought Ebay protects my identification. Guess the hackers beat the system.
