$30.00 for 5 days of work lunches, 2 kinds of deli meat, cheese, and burrito shells.
I box of granola bars. No fruits, no veggies.
Just enough for 5 days. Ouch !

Then I get stung again on taxation to support all those not working.

Yup, sounds about right ! Maybe I should just quit and join the rest of
the clowns in the circus.

I'm puzzled as to why an article regarding a disabled person getting shot in the leg with a paintball gun is associated with a picture of the Abbotsford police tribute to Heidi Stevenson.

You have CDO, that's OCD in alphabetical order.
I used to envy people who could do cartwheels.
Now I envy anyone who can get up off the floor without grunting and leaning on the furniture!

Actually, it's BANG on the centre (with Osoyoos being the extreme south and Salmon Arm being the extreme north)...

It could be that those who laid out this site are originally from Toronto, the centre of the universe.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

Ah, I get what you're saying now. I agree, flog the whole lot of 'em.

Announcing where the wildlife has returned to and when is also exactly the same as giving it a death sentence. This is why photographers keep their mouths shut when asked, "where did ja get that photo"?
As WW3 develops, no one is going to be dissing the "preppers." What have you done?

The better half purchased one of these several weeks ago : https://www.amazon.ca/Dynatrap-DT1260-M ... 7593&psc=1

Bought another recently.
The basket has a few moths and plenty of mozzies. Usually don't have many bugs here but as it has been wet recently, more mozzies that usual, until she put the traps up.
