Re: Visiting USA - covid testing

Oh that is interesting. Which exact test did you get there? I'm looking at their website and see:

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

The dolphin was great, the whale, even better :D From what I have been reading season six will wrap things up pretty well, and the author(s) of the books seem to think it's a good conclusion, so that...

Re: Paid Holidays in canada

On the flip side of the "not taking holidays" thing, my employer is actively telling us to book vacations and don't sit on the days. We can only roll over, I think, 5 days to the next year. In fact I...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I've only seen the odd bit of the odd episode, possibly the last one. Seemed ok. My girlfriend has watched all of season one, and I think she's started season two.
I don't overly like football so...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I started watching Blakes7. Only a couple of episodes in. I have known about it for a long time, but never watched it until now. It's ok, but a bit dry.
Keeping on the SciFi riff, I re-watched some...

Re: Celebrity Croakers 2021

Very sad to hear of Sean's passing. His humour may not have been to some people's taste, but he did make me laugh a great deal, and he'll be missed.

Re: Vaccine for travel purpose?

That's a very good point about wether you can choose what type of vaccines you can get, by this I mean, for example, can you get both Pfizer, or both Moderna, or is it a case of you get what is...

Re: Job Offer in Nova Scotia - Looking for Brutal Honesty

I'd say to give it a go. I was fortunate enough to be asked if I wanted to relocate from our UK office to our newly opened office based in the Toronto area. I thought about it for a few days, then...

Re: Citizenship Application Timeline

A good point about online vs paper.

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I could not remember if we had finished series two of Life On Mars, and we only watched that a few months ago :D I can remember the odd bit about Ashes to Ashes, so for the most part it is like...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

Ashes to Ashes, all three series, popped up on BritBox so it's time for a watch of that :)

Though it's a little way off, Foundation on AppleTV+ looks good. I read the book and remember a little...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

Binged "Clarkson's Farm" last night and today. Not a bad show. I'm not the world's biggest JC fan, and he did grate a fair bit, but that's par the course really. I do wonder how many of the...

Re: Cineplex open - r u going ?

Cineplex? No. Far, far too overpriced. I'd rather go to our locally owned cinema, film.ca. However, I'm not planning on going to any cinema for a little while.

There's also the fact that big...

Re: Dundas

The thing is, it's not just Dundas street that is going to be renamed:

The city will also remove the Dundas name from other public infrastructure, including the TTC's Dundas and Dundas West subway...

I hope I do not appear rude, but the TD account thing you mention - Zelle - seems to be US only from what I can tell.

Re: Anyone done the 3 days airport YYZ hotel quarantine stay yet?

There's the cost of the hotel stay for a start. Plus it might be 3 days, could be more, depends on what happens with the test results, if the test comes back as inconclusive then that would probably...

Re: Coronavirus

No I've not seen an official statement about stage 4. I'm basing it on, and I could be wrong, that there is no indication of how long stage 3 will last. We know we'll go to stage 3 on the 16th, but...

Re: Coronavirus

I thought there always was a Stage 4, as Stage 3 wasn't a full lifting of all restrcitions.

It's interesting to see Moore change his mind on moving Stage 3 up, as I believe he was adamant it would...
