Yep, same here. Only downside to winter for me is the short days, I hate them. I like the cold weather, and snow, but I hate the short days, and in a few weeks will be worse when we fall back on the clocks.

Sunset in my part of the world will be 4:33pm on Nov 1st, Nov 3th sunset will be 3:59pm, peaks at 3:56pm in mid December. 16 hours of darkness is not fun....

Meanwhile, on this side of the equator we're in full spring. The clocks went forward last weekend and things are warming up nicely. I reckon just a few more weeks and we'll be able use the pool again.

When all these virus worries have passed maybe you can follow the sun and do a bit of grey nomadding down under!

Damn supermarket across the other side of town to me might be stopping delivery to my area. It's the one place that consistently includes the many special offers in delivery, plus they have stuff that the other supermarkets don't. Their delivery charge for this area is double their 'local' rate and it's only 10 minutes extra.

I'm gutted.

Companies who treat Canadian's differently because eh it's just Canada.

I bought an air purifier today since finally one on sale and in stock, and winter is coming and with windows closed 95% of the time from now until April, air filter helps me.

Anyhow it just annoys me when a company will give US residents a 2 year warranty but no that is too good for Canada, in Canada we only get a 1 year warranty.

This is somewhat common, we pay more for it, but get less warranty from it.

Always the comedian you are...

Interest rate: 0.05% on every dollar

Bank sent an email today with this subject line: Get high interest

The bold bit above is their idea of high interest.


Oh and to withdraw money from the account it's $5 per transaction....lol

I passed on their offer.
