  1. There are times when the only valid response is "Tough Bananas"
  2. The fault is all on the heads of the poor executives at Sears. My wife worked over 20 years at Sears and many of the decisions were just plain stupid. She was forced to retire a few years ago just so that they could reduce head-counts. She was a commissioned sales person in the appliance department. She was part-time but scheduled to work 40 hours a week. She had no benefits and because she was one of the top sales people in gross sales she earned every dollar that was sent her way by way of commissions. If some months her sales did not cover her salary she went into 'draw' and had to sell her way out of it. They sent her home one day a few years ago and said we will send you a salary for 15 months based upon your average commission cheques. She no longer had to work for her money. Somehow this made sense.
  3. and the population of the Maritimes is one-half of Alberta's
  4. The biggest deal with the SR71 was that the leak was the funny fuel it used. If the fuel was on fire on the ground there was no smoke and no visible flame.
  5. It seems like NDHQ does not any mission where someone might get hurt.
  6. Why hasn't Ontario privatized the retail sale of alcohol?
  7. The 'News' today said that a big point of controversy with the governments is that they do not want to tax marijuana to the point that would make legal stuff more expensive than illegal stuff. Too bad the politicians would not see the same problem with tobacco and alcohol.
  8. I suspect another election where their candidate wins.
  9. The media in general has fallen victim to the desire to have the most sensational language in their reports. Unfortunately they are not smart enough to understand the best usage of the words and phrases.
  10. Back in ancient times I was in a window seat behind the wing on a CAIL 737 and noticed a steady significant stream of fluid from the #2 engine. It was there on take-off and continued for the next hour. I brought it to the attention of the cabin crew and along with my business card asked that the alert the front end crew. I was then asked up to the cockpit (see how long ago) and had a good conversation with the pilots. They said that the engine was on monitor for excessive oil consumption and we decided that perhaps we had determined why. The next day, I did notice that that aircraft was out of service for an unscheduled engine change.
  11. Nope Hilary Lost
  12. Not my ground-hog
  13. Hillary lost
  14. How many people can ride on the back of a 'bird'
