Kamloops, and it's perfectly legal.
Got my first haircut in almost three months today. Shocked the bejesus out of my wife. :200:

The shop had three of four barbers working, wearing masks or a face shield. Three chairs inside for those waiting plus a couple of customers waiting outside.

Hand sanitizer a fire risk in a hot car.
Betcha I could fill my car with bottles of hand sanitizer, even scatter a big box full of magnifying glasses, strike anywhere matches, and a bucket of gas around in the car, and it wouldn't ignite sitting in the sun for a month in the Sahara desert.

Recently I've been reading news stories with the slang term "Karen" in it. It definitely wasn't a complimentary term. And it really puzzled me. So I Googled it:

...used to typify a person perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary. One of the most common Karen stereotypes is that of a white middle-aged woman, typically American, who displays aggressive behavior when she is obstructed from getting her way; such women are often depicted as demanding to "speak to the manager.

Hey, that's hilarious. Does anyone here know a "Karen"?

I know a Karen (her real name) and she is quite nice.
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

Have a relative named Karen and she fits the definition to a tee. And she wondered why we never told her when we were going shopping, to the movies, restaurants, or just window shopping.

Probably 25% are a Karen. Just a guess.

Which coast? There are lots of coasts out there. Why November or December? Why not September......nothing planned for that month as far as I've seen.

Sept.is fine with me.
There is only one coast in Canada that can experience a subduction zone megathrust quake.

A quake that large would probably affect us too, wouldn't it? This area has a fault too, if I remember correctly . . .
I haven't failed until I quit.
