My ex was born and raised in south Texas. We were stationed in Duluth, MN. He and his friends built an ice shack and enjoyed ice fishing together for four winters.

when I used to scull in Vancouver I would go early in the morning before work when the water and world was quiet and a little harbour seal followed me every morning, never got on my craft and never showed up if I went out in the evening.
02/17/2017 at 20:25
He may well of been avoiding a whale. Ive seen another video where seal jumped in a canoe because whale was chasing it. That man is lucky that seal didnt bite his hand off. Dont touch Wildlife unless your rescuing it.

Funny thing is that guy was probably going "awww cute" meanwhile the giant predator that was hunting it is right under them lol

These dinks need to look at the devastation at Fort Mcmurry and see what can happen when it gets out of control, not saying that's what started it but it can escalate fast

I don't see that as a good trade off. Destroying trees and receiving a fine for it? Make em plant trees till their knuckles bleed. Can't put a price of fresh air.

Almost 20 years of listening to the Vinyl Cafe. Sundays at noon, we'd turn the radio up, and shhhh, those who were still talking. Whether it was at the cottage, or on the drive home. Our Sundays have felt empty since January when CBC started scheduling other programming. But there was always the hope and prayer that Stuart would get well, and be back in short order.
The absence is felt deeply, across this Country.
02/16/2017 at 16:28
So sad to hear this, I loved his stories and unique way of telling them. Sincere condolences to his Family and friends, he will be miss by so many.
02/16/2017 at 19:24
Even though I never met him in person I feel like a member of my family passed away. He had a wonderful way of making you feel like he was sitting there in your living room and having a visit. Condolences to his family.

Time to get off your asses and get in shape! Actually like to shovel. Fresh air. Exercise. Can still use snowblower or whatever but get out there
02/16/2017 at 14:42
I've just turned 64 and have been on the end of a shovel for years. I consider snow shovelling as a great outdoor activity and look forward to it daily in the winter. Common sense and pacing is used every time, no matter the snow load. Making a game of it also makes it fun. Try it and let your mind go wild.
02/17/2017 at 11:45
I was just joking about the snowblower comment guys lol,I thought I'd better appolagize now my brother inlaw wants to come over and try rough me up,lol,sorry Chuck,don't beat me up ok

About 20 years ago I went to PEI for a holiday with my grandson. We stayed in a B&B that was run by a couple of artists, it was a barn, the inside was split up to rooms they where all beautifully decorated. My room had two sides looking on to a beautiful view. Always wanted to go back, but never had the chance, great experience!
02/15/2017 at 21:43
Doesn't look as if there is any fun left in the hay loft .. sad .. many many great times in the hay loft .. looks a nice place

That's a mating ritual. If they were males it would not have been suitable to post . Playful foreplay. I to ,don't understand what she thought was so funny about them about to fight. They lose eyes and fight to the death. Glad that's not what I had to view.

Sharing this as I had 1 lynx in the yard about a month ago. It had chicken (mine) on its menu. It stayed treed until early evening after which I followed its tracks to, up and over my henhouse, all around the hen compound, and when nothing was available, gone once again down the ravine and away. It was interesting to see up in the tree, difficult to spot however, and neighbors were surprised to see one.

I just wish all the people ordering these "off menu" specialty crap, or ordering full meals, or enough food for a staff meeting/hockey team/family reunions, they would go into the damn restaurant to order and stay out of the drive-thru lines!
02/15/2017 at 03:43
I just wish their toasters would actually toast. Bagels come out looking toasted but not at all toasted. Double toasted just ends up with charred edges. This is not rocket science!

I am starting to wonder if some Timmies locations are using half of the coffee pouch when brewing ? Locations in my area serve coffee that tastes like water.
'Ordered dark roast in hopes of getting a decent cup of coffee tasted the same as the watery brew they sold me the day before 😠

At the cottage there is a full kitchen, 1.5 baths and comfy seats inside and out but... No internet, no touch tone phone, no cable and poor cellphone service. But, if you need to call 911 there is a landline phone that works no matter what the weather.
