Wow! And I thought your ball sack tattoo was a bad idea!

Anyway, onto another SUBJECT, I've installed hardwood flooring in my house. It's so nice, that I'm thumbing nose at everyone who doesn't have hardwood. Everyone who doesn't have this type of flooring is now blocked and deleted on my facebook page. Okay, not really, but I really, really like the stuff. I only charge $42 per hour. Get yours today.

Try some slate in other rooms now, and you’ll be really living it up.

It's sad to hear about cougars being shot, on the other hand farm animals are very easy targets for predators like cougars.
On dairy farm our property was next to mountain range, we would see cougars, bears & rare sightings of wolf's. Cattle were always in the fields furthest away from mountainside.

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.

We saw one a couple of weeks ago. I hope it survived the Snow and freezing weather we had.

So I check out a product on Amazon.ca, and it's close to $1000. Then I check out the SAME product on Amazon.com, and it's $299 US. Even with the exchange rate and shipping, it's less than half the cost.

It sometimes just doesn't seem to make any sense.

I don't get out and about often but today saw the new hotel at the corner of Hwy 33 and 97 and remembered the stink Council made about the design or parking or setback or something.

IMO the hotel looks fine..... it's the addition of ANOTHER strip mall along 97 in front of the hotel that ticked me off.

"The Hill" on highway 20. The natives had been using the easier way out of the Bella Coola valley for thousands of years up the precipice trail. But nope, the Q'umsciwas (white men) didn't want to do that. Clayton Mack, a legendary First Nations grizzly bear hunter and guide, worked on this road in 1953. He told the white guys that “....you don’t have to go this way you know!” But, they wouldn’t listen. Those “....crazy white guys!”

It's arsehole season again, the Harleys are brapping about announcing their inferiority complexes and demanding attention like 15 yr old girls from all within earshot (and then some)
