We have one. That piece of wood looks like the one HID spent $50 on.

Snow already?

And an election there too?





This guy in the US, has a good idea to help cat box odor.

I am always amazed at the ideas people think of, I only found his website because I was bored and searched DIY cat littler box filter. Hopefully he can get some good marketing, its a good idea, but looks like he is pretty small operation still.

Yes the wood bought in stores for aquariums is crazy expensive in Canada, but there are a lot of rules and permits involved in importing the wood into Canada.

Almost any hardwood is suitable for aquarium use, many in BC go and collect their own, just don't use softwood, and never collect in an urban area, and best to find wood already in water submerged as it can take some wood months to sink.

Yep, first snow of the year for Regina, really, and they put the advance poll for the provincial election in the dining room of the Serbian Club right next to the bar, so I could have a beer and sign in for the honey pot right after voting.

I ordered something from Canadian Tire yesterday. My email acknowledgement was received at 10.05 am.
The parcel arrived just now - 12.40 pm.

That is fast. Must have come from your local store?

I ordered items on Sunday and Monday on Amazon, they haven't shipped yet, say's arriving Monday and Tuesday next week but until shipped the estimated days are meaningless.

The only time you should ever spit on someone is when you are tied to a chair with your hands behind your back and about to get tortured.

"should" There is a case for situational ethics here. I've never done it, but I won't promise I never will.

Close enough to where it could get from store to your house that quickly....

I assume based on speed it wasn't sent from ON or Alberta or some far off land.

So all three of them then.

Cost me $4.99 for delivery. Bus fare would have been $2.75 each way. Why go? (unless urgent of course)
