  1. They've probably already popped it in the mail. Not a big deal. When it arrives give it to a friend to read.
  2. So ??? What happened ???
  3. Forcing their presidents to call a summit meeting to discuss..
  4. I totally get what you are saying. It does seem like they just arrived and are already getting mid-life refurbs and what not. A lot of youngsters on here, the trolleys have been here for nearly half of their lives, so it seems like a long time to them, when actually just a drop in the bucket to some of us oldsters. Trolleys have a service life of 20+ years, if cared for properly. The downside with many buses, trolleys included, is that as technology progresses parts availability decreases.
  5. Which then became an internet meme causing major riots between..
  6. Saw a 98.9 today among all the other 101.4. (Jan 13, 2017) Today (Jan. 14) I saw all 98.9, except ESSO was 101.4
  7. 101.4 at most places in Edmonton today (Jan 12, 2017)
  8. which were endorsed by celebrity chef...
  9. Salad for Supper. Super Girl Organic Greens (spinach, Swiss chard, kale) with blue cheese dressing, jalapenos and topped with freshly grated Parmesan and salt free seasoning mix (oregano, turmeric, paprika, chili pepper flakes, coarse ground lemon pepper).
  10. Spicy Butternut Squash Soup with freshly grated Parmesan and buttered toast.
  11. And so it begins in 2017. Alluring 1960's-1970's character actress Francine York dies Jan. 06, 2017 at age 80.
  12. I'm really starting to dislike my bank. They've upped the minimum balance required in my chequing acct AGAIN. They already did this a couple of years ago. Now that I am somewhat semi-retired, I would like to keep as much of my 'loose' money as I can in my power savings, not in my chequing. I suppose to some extent all banks are pretty much the same and operate pretty much the same way, and they are all business first. I really wish I didn't have to keep a minimum balance.
  13. Wow. Unbelievable. Just no end to the carnage.
  14. Spicy Salmon Salad on whole grain toast. Canned salmon, added a mix of mayonnaise and tartar sauce, some hot sauce, fresh grated Parmesan cheese, and some sliced jalapenos and dill pickles. Very tasty, lots of tang and crunch.
  15. Got $100.00 carbon tax rebate today, and $71.66 GST refund. Pretty much spent it all in one fell swoop too. The Body Shop had a 50% off sale, so I bought a large body butter and large shower gel came to $27.88, lunch at the Spaghetti Factory came to $17.00, and I put $100.00 on my Rogers Pay as You Go phone with tax $105.00. So I spent $149.88. A bit of a pleasant surprise at the Rogers kiosk, they were giving away hat/scarf/gloves. I don't need them, but I took them anyways. Makes a nice gift for one of the grandchildren.
