hahaha...Alan, you are such a fool...bragging about the main Mod deleting some stupid comment (in the bickering room to boot) and how long and how many times have you been placed in queue for the short time since you joined this forum ??

if I recall I think you said that being in queue felt like looking out the window while everybody else is outside playing...LOL

I liked your unedited award speech better Alan, it did a better job of covering those "too many" fans that you weren't able to reply to:

"I would like to thank my parents, my fans, my agent, Jeeebus, my health care provider for keeping me upright, my local pharmacy for keeping the shelves stocked with Ensure®, the city of Kelowna for their transportation services, and last but not least, my sponsor! Depend® they have been helping me manage my bladder leakage for more than 35 years!"

Congratulations. Sincerely,

Neither one of the above two posts has anything to do with the topic. Both show that these 2 posters have got nothing of value to add to the topic.

I’m on the short bus queue for the first time ever......like farting in the wind.....you never know if a post will be relevant.
Like posting with dementia. You forget what you said and whether it will show up.
Like sitting in the corner with the dunce hat on and having to put your hand up to talk.
Like talking, after being frozen for double fillings on each side of your mouth, the moment after leaving the dental office.

Like....you get the idea. :biggrin:

The report indicated 41 per cent of British Columbians are within $200 of insolvency, 58 per cent are concerned about their ability to repay debt and 27 per cent believe they don’t make enough money to cover bills and debt obligations.

You are looking at it all wrong vacancyrate.

41% of BC-ers may be $200 away from insolvency, but it also means that they have $200/mo of discretionary spending room left! That ought to be good for a couple of large pizzas, 4 bottles of affordable wine, and a trip to the edible marijuana store...

Even better, 59% have >= $200/mo of discretionary spending room, which would increase the quantity of those items above.

Remember, 'abundance' comes in all shapes and forms, and is completely subjective - just ask bpeep. So the only figure that really matters is the one that represents the number of insolvent people; credit counselling and bankruptcies.

Why would you say that?
Or have you heard someone else say that?
Or do you just assume that is what others are saying?

Now that the money laundering scandal has been silenced by the courts, maybe the Chinese/drug dealing/money washing in casinos can continue as per usual. And where is that money invested? Real Estate. So ya, could be prices will rise again.
Using cash is one of your few forms of privacy: use it or lose it. 1984 isn't the only Orwell novel that needs to to made fiction again.

Guessing that continued rampant criminality and overdose deaths will result in property value increases, while understanding many personally gained from it.
