  1. Mumu's are less form fitting.
  2. What I am seeing is a nessecetated move back to multi-generational housing. Housing prices alone in any major centre in Canada are driving this. Yes, we are living longer but that doesn't render a person, less valuable as a person. I feel for your Mom. Eventually, you should move out of the poor lady's basement.
  3. People that call our healthcare "free" have been intellectually marginalized. We pay taxes on taxes in Canada and on everything you do and purchase, even re-purchase. This is why a $15 bottle of vodka in the US becomes $45 in Canada whose dollar trades at a 30% discount. Same for auto pricing. Same for clothing. We pay very dearly for "free" healthcare. So, take your pay, reduce it by 48% for income tax, then reduce it by 15-30% again for dollar differential, then 15% for sales taxes on goods that are increased by 20-200% in manufacturing taxes or import duties and you will have the p
  4. A mumu. Consider it an investment in your future.
  5. The closer I get to being a senior, the more relevant it becomes of course but when I look at the poor medical my Dad received in his last months and the poor care my mother is receiving, the more it becomes obvious as to the shortfalls of societies treatment of aging. They are no less a people and no less deserving of care. I find it disheartening. Maybe this will become my new cause.
  6. ..in Ontario and they are doing the same in Quebec. It started as relief for the workers but they are remaining for now until there is resolve to inhumane conditions the elderly are being exposed to. Then it dawned on me, wait! This is medical care, it is just long term. Why are these not government facilities like hospitals? Is this yet another tier of healthcare predicated on socio-economic conditions? I think we should commit to taking them out of private hands where there has been abuse and neglect and make them part of a cradle to grave healthcare system the government so prou

    I am sweaty

    Yep. You are blessed out there in LaLa land!
  8. Big Sky never disappoints!
  9. He has had 7 kids with 3 or 4 partners. Now I am thinking Space-X is really Spa-Sex.
  10. Maybe they just go hand in hand. Firstly.. Elon, are you insane? Is this you Danson/Goldberg moment?
  11. Because Texans would do them every two months.
  12. Have you ever thought about taking motorcycles up as a hobby?
  13. We will stay south to Buffalo.
  14. We are going to make a run for the border to escape the zombie colonies. When we pick it up in July/August, we may have a few days to do some touring and visiting.
  15. When the maintenance was planned, I was going to take the girls and spend a couple of weeks driving through the New England states. Thanks C-19.
  16. When they were owned by the family, Ski Doo's and Sea Doo's were often given to aviation managers as a thank you. I am sure it wasn't to influence a sale.
  17. That is the closest Bombardier service centre.
  18. I am intrigued! It will also make AWWC very jealous when I tell him.
  19. 96 month inspection. It takes 2 months.
  20. I am flight crew in so exempt! I do have to do the quarantine on the way home.
  21. It does smell for a few days. I don't mind the smell of onions though.
  22. Then we are renting a car and driving home to Toronto. Will I die? Are Canadians Covid exempt? Is there anything I need to see on the way? Worlds biggest ball of yarn or something?
