Christmas lights and nativity scenes in July! It's bad enough that, after Hallowe'en but before all the candies could be unwrapped and eaten by little hands, we used to have Christmas music, ads, jingles, etc. etc. etc. (the onslaught has been put off at least now until after Remembrance Day). I'm all for the Holiday spirit and what it's supposed to mean, and do enjoy the tradition of decking one's property out in lights and candy canes. I also appreciate that my...
OK, one more ... The Official Canadian Temperature Conversion Chart 50° Fahrenheit (10° C) • New Yorkers try to turn on the heat. • Canadians plant gardens. 40° Fahrenheit (4.4° C) • Californians shiver uncontrollably. • Canadians Sunbathe. 35° Fahrenheit (1.6° C) • Italian Cars won't start • Canadians drive with the windows down 32° Fahrenheit (0 ° C) • Distilled water freezes • Canadian water get thicker. 0° Fahrenheit (-17.9° C) • New York City...
and so, some HOCKEY HUMOUR!! A Canadian hockey fan, a Russian hockey fan and a soccer fan were all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of alcohol. All of a sudden Saudi police rushed in and arrested them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offence in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime of actually being caught consuming the alcohol, they were sentenced to death! However, after many months and with the help of very good lawyers, they were able to...

I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada." With a blink of the Genie's eye, 'FOOM' the land in Canada was forever...

Wear them in good health, Edmorel *sigh* gotta admit, Viral: the shoe selection at Vaughan Holt's is by contrast rather slim pickings by comparison every time I've went anyway -- so Black Friday, while kinda neat to have now in Canada (first time this year, as noted) does of course have a way to go (Americans have it perfected,...
Quote: Originally Posted by Viral I'm from Toronto, born and raised, and have a good feel for how far the CDN $ goes. For me personally, the 13% tax itself is a deal-breaker. The example you gave might be one of the few items priced cheaper in Canada, but not realistic as B&H is rarely the cheapest on the things they sell. Keeping it apples-to-apples, let's stick to clothing (since we're on a clothing forum). Harry Rosen's lowest sale price (even on...
Arte, you might also want to check out the Bioware related sites, such as neverwinter nights, dragon age, etc. Based out of Edmonton, Canada, their main site also has a ton of general information including skills etc. necessary for different jobs they routinely hire for (and don't forget the whole administrative and management side of gaming, like for e.g. accounting, legals and business management, etc. which is a huge part of the entertainment industry, including...
Quote: Originally Posted by Viral Black Friday in Canada.....interesting. However, no CDN retailer will be able to compete on price with their US counterparts, so I'm not sure what the thought behind this would be. Sounds like a losing proposition for American consumers........ Not sure what you're talking about, unless it's the US dollar (back where it should be vis-a-vis the CDN dollar, as in, par, and where it's been historically). Canadian...

As to a VW, why not! Ye Nay-Sayers: I restored an old 914 years ago which I bought off the track (a VW in Europe, re-badged and sold as a Porsche over here, and which was completely gutted for the track, as you can imagine -- so, yes, I totally agree with...
My trees for the most part are Rochesters (the "freebies" from Pediwear, when applicable, are I believe Dascos, split-toe). That said, while no first-hand experience with Woodlores I did a search for you. If you are referring to the Ultra split-toe, you're good to go. In fact, they seem to be the most recommended ones on account of the split toe, both on SF and elsewhere, saying the trees are for an E width, assuming you're using a size Medium tree given your size,...
