We should create a positive thread... I did just that a couple of years ago in response to somebody creating a negative thread... The negative thread still got way more comments.... Bah humbug.... (just practising!!)

I'm happy. I already have about 120lbs of red spring salmon neatly and securely vacuumed packaged in my big freezer. And this run is not over yet.

Wow, missed a bullet there. Us white salmon need to keep out of your way then. Just joking.. we taste just as nice... we simply moan a lot more even when there's nothing to moan about.

On my third cup of tea now.

I like white spring as well and those big hogs should arrive in just over two weeks from now. My problem is there is so much fish but I don't have the time to go out in work hours and the evening bite has been non existent. That hopefully will change with the new run although it's getting darker in the evenings. Still on brighter note, I get to moon the last few cruise ships sailing under the Lions Gate bridge.

In the mail today I received a calendar and a request for a donation from PETA. The Calendar is animal pictures.

I have no idea why they might target me - at least in the UK similar appeals from Oxfam, Greenpeace etc were likely liked to Amnesty membership - although it could just be a random thing.

Anyway I thought I might write back and thank them for the calendar but note the recipes were missing.

Looks to be between 1.34 and 1.41 in Vancouver using gas buddy depending on what part of the city your in, on my side which is lower income it's 1.34 at Husky on the west side which is higher income, the stations appear to be mostly around 1.41 for regular.

I use Chevron as the scooter manual says to use 91 or 94 ethanol free gasoline, and chevron I know has 94 ethanol free where other brands seem to have ethanol in all of their gas and don't go above 91.

But even at 1.60 liter, only cost me 7.86 to fill up, loving this 7-9/week gas fill up....
