    Marci's Music Box

    Oh wait! This summer theme is going downhill fast :oops: More mutton chops and bad hair :mad: The music isn't even that good either. Sorry Marci! I'm letting you down big time ............

    Continuing along with the summer theme, let's take a look back at Mungo Jerry o_O This one is tough though. Who wears a black mesh shirt and what the hell is going on with those bushy mutton-chops anyway :eek: Geez! (And the guy playing the base should never have grown out his hair) So much...

    What's for dinner ( or lunch )

    Muskox will be on the menu this weekend. Just cutting up the giant roast I got for doing some work on one of the neighbour's houses(y) Everything's barter here ;)

    Marci's Music Box

    In recognition of the arrival of summer temps here in Tuk, I'm offering up my favorite rendition of that good old summertime song by the Drifters 'Under The Boardwalk'. This rendition has a few additional instruments that I think give it a little more character.

    I try to see the good :) But, am disappointed when I see the bad. I prefer to follow the good when I do see it.

    What's for dinner ( or lunch )

    Last weekend a neighbor called me up and asked if I'd BBQ a duck he'd shot last fall and had kept in the freezer all winter. Of course I obliged! Nothing like a BBQ with a few pops along the way :D He had cleaned and dressed the bird before he came over. I made a dry rub, a glaze and a Raspberry...

    How do you like to be woken up?

    A new day...

    I feel the same way! Felt this place was a nice, comfortable, supportive place initially after I joined. That's changed considerably since then. Political discussions are not allowed here - Good! Why not take that up a notch and include 'any controversial topics'? One member who joined around...

    For the comfort level you need to consider the humidex as well. There is virtually no humidity here so the temp. is the temp. On the other hand, Fla. for example is a local where in the summer humidity would have a HUGE impact on 'comfort level'. You temp was 30C but what was your humidex...

    It's all in C; which is the official measure of temp. in Canada (and most of the rest of the world, for that matter). There are only 3 countries in the world that still use the antiquated Imperial measure system: Liberia, Myanmar & USA.

    What (if anything) should be done about housing prices?

    The changes I've seen over the past 20-30 years in the landscape of Canada's population base due to immigration has been incredible. Looking at the 3 main cities; Vancouver, Toronto & Montreal, they are almost not recognizable anymore. On the other hand, I have not seen a lot of immigrants...

    suspecting elder abuse

    I'm not expert in these matters either but the list of issues you stated does not sound like their situation is a loving relationship. Who's pushing the 'want to move' issue? Her or your Dad? What does YOUR husband think of all this? Is he supportive of your suspicions or does he not want any...
