There are a couple of TV ads for local business's that I find annoying. 1 for a Realtor and the other for RV sales.
Thank God for the mute button on the remote because last night they were showed back to back while watching the News.

We won't even talk about the new Weather guy Pee Wee Herman! :200:

Thank you for the information one wheel..regarding canadian tire...I would not have known until next year about it. How annoying, Kelowna has a shortage of dumping stations and we NEED a decent one!

I have only ever used CT's dump station 1 time as it is too difficult to get in and out with a larger rig. We are usually staying at places with full service and dump before leaving. Many RV parks will let you use their dumping station for a small fee if you aren't staying there.

It would be nice to have one on the Hwy somewhere though.

:cuss: When I see a trailer for a good movie and find out it isn't based on a book. I'd rather read, thank you very much.

one wheel wrote:The Canadian Tire Store at Leckie & Hwy.97 have closed their Dumping Station permanently due to vandalism. What a shame because it was the only one that I know of that could accommodate the longer trailers & then have easy access back onto Hwy.97. I don't blame the management for closing it if required a daily clean up ?

So where are other Dumping Stations located in Kelowna that have access for larger units ?

With the election coming up maybe those running for Mayor would consider putting in a proper Dumping Station like most other towns provide ?


I bet its more like they closed it coz it represents a cost with zero return.

Every movie based on a novel/book, should be known as very loosely based. i.e someone was reading the book while walking through the movie set. lol
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Haha! Good point! There's also a dang tv show that I've seen advertised and I thought there must be a book. HA! Something about a plane taking off and disappearing for 9 years or something like that and then finally landing and the people on board don't realize they've been missing that long. That would be such a good book. If someone wrote it! :-X

Can you imagine coming back after 9 years to discover Trump is the POTUS? Think I'd hop back on the plane. [icon_lol2.gif]

The Shell at Hwy 33 has one, I believe

People who answer an online ad asking if the item is still available and you tell them yes it is, then you never hear from them again! :-X :cuss:

Why the :cuss: did you ask in the first place!

I have been guilty of that. Gaaak, when ‘stuff comes up’ I end up with this feeling that I had forgotten to do something. Was it me? Regarding a Nikon lens perhaps?

Neighbours who don't think cleaning the leaves out of the gutter is any of their business, even if it's off their freaking tree.
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

You're safe, not a lens but do you need a car or a dishwasher? lol

Another peeve is I was watching an NCIS re-run and they were supposed to be on the USS Enterprise CVN65. They then proceeded to show pictures of the USS John C. Stennis CVN74. Pretty dumb!
