Re: CC Random thread

It's so true it hurts. I can remember the celebration that happened in 2001 the night the NDP went down. BC entered a period of huge growth despite all the people on a free ride all over the province. At some point people are going to realize that it sucks to pay taxes when you don't earn any money ...

Re: OK, So What I have heard this May 2012

So I spent part of the weekend talking to a guy within the Canucks organization. Name withheld for obvious reasons but his position is in the 'financial' end of things. So he tells the group (a few guys having drinks) how aggressive the Canucks were on Parise and with Suter and then Weber. No number...

Re: Home Construction Discussion

It is a teething pain of many a good small business and one that kills some. They build a good reputation and clientele based upon their solid work. Business improves and they take on more than they can chew. Hire new folks and can not adequately supervise them. Quality suffers, reputation falls of...

Re: Muzac For Munsters

I have this show: http://www.rockshowvideos.com/jamaicaclash.html if anyone is interested and it is from way better masters than what circulates today in pseudo commercial form. It's crystal clear and had proper mastering by some one who knows what they are doing.

Re: Home Construction Discussion

Meds that some serious work. Since you seem to be planning to move are you going all out on renos or simply, fixing to sell? We made the decision we want the basement to look like it's a new home and we'll go forward with that approach. In the end we decided that renovating and fixing the 'devil you...

Re: The Fitness/Health Thread

Yes, Mexico. I've got two week in PV booked over Christmas and NY so there is the motivation. Diet is key, holding off all the cravings and making smarter choices. I still want to be able to enjoy liquor! That stuff is evil on diets though. :evil:

The Fitness/Health Thread

So I went back to the gyms tonight after a long absence. Last 18 months have been a work/professional whirlwind of activity with a lot of traveling and 'rubber chicken' circuit. Too much drinking and good times. I looked in the mirror the other week and just said 'fuck, it's time to change'. I had m...

Yeah, it's the neighborhood equivalent of Dunbar/Pount Grey or Kerrisdale. No views or hills though. Lots of character houses and close to the big monster mansions.

I grew up in Dunbar so it feels a lot like home.

Re: Home Construction Discussion

It's moving long pretty quick. Sure it doesn't seem like it too you though. You know it's not too bad. Only been a month and it's summer. We're out at lake of the woods this weekend and then the acids is moving up to our cottage for 3 weeks with kids. I'll commute only 35 mins to one of my offices....

Re: Home Construction Discussion

Nice. So what's the R-value of spray foam for 2x4 walls? R24 IIRC. I am having more blow in added to my attic as I'm going to electric boiler heat and due to panel size (even with 200 amp) I need to be sure I won't get cold. You dont have room for a heat pump/air handler on your panel? 60A/20A brea...

Re: Home Construction Discussion

As you can see all spray foamed and so silent and dry in what is normally a musty basement. It was 3k for the job and I wouldn't change a thing. So here are a few updates: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8017/7552085458_42e7216365.jpg Looking into the utility room. Furnace guys came today to do some m...
