Iffen you bought it new why didn't you yell at the company about the warranty? Once Frigidaire was a good brand, but it would be my last choice these days.

We're talking about a new fridge to replace the Amanna we bought 20 years ago. Probably something in basic white with a bottom freezer. But who knows? We may replace the washer first, since the crick is friz over and that hard water is tough on the clothes.

SRS... I don't do internet transactions. But, I appreciate your help.

THE NEW FRIDGE IS HERE! THE NEW FRIDGE IS HERE! It doesn't snap, crackle and pop! The freezer freezes! -19C!!! It's one cubic foot bigger but the shelving arrangement sucks so it isn't as spatially convenient as the 18 cubic feet piece of fucking shit that was taken away BUT this one WORKS! It won't wake me up at night with the snap, crackle and bang and so by piss me off so much that I can't go back to sleep. It won't piss me off every time I open the freezer compartment because there won't be a half inch of frost on everything just a month after I defrost the "frost-free SOB". This is a Maytag. I had a "Frigidaire... leave it there".

The Frigitair was deleivered Nov 23, three years ago. Cost a penny, Cost a lot more pennies in grief.

Happy dance time!

Well, it's innerestin', I declare, ow the world ebbs and flows. I wanted a little extra dough to buy a studio work table for my audio setup, and just then I gets a long distance phone call that nets me a grand in a month. Unexpected, but perfectly fitted to the moment.

I am going crazy learning how my mixer works. It's a beaut--ALlen and Heath--great preamps--all the necessaries in a small package. Why it's got a recording bus, an aux bus, a main mix bus, and a special effects bus, and you can patch the playback bus into the aux bus and run it through the FX bus. I never seen such a mish mash of routings and tweakings. And that's before we even glance at the software. I swan, it is enough to make a man spin on his tiptoes.

But I am getting my wits around it slowly but surely, enough to use. Somewhere down the road there will be all kinds of recordings coming out.

There will be a schmaltz CD, and an AL Grierson Memorial CD, and a Western Trails CD and a bunch of historical epoch CDs, andf gawd knows what else, plus one or two of my own writings. Assuming my voice holds up and I don't get arthrotic paralygalosis of the zygotic regions.

Just stacked up there, waiting for you or someone to find it? I mean, I know Canadian money isn't REAL money, but it might blow away and litter the street.

Actually, while it may put you to sleep, very much of that amber liquid will mess up the stages of sleep and you won't get as good a rest. Something I think I tested on my own enough to be convinced of it. You're better off with a glass of apple juice than a dram of Scotch at bedtime if you're going for amber. But water is best.

Guests to the MOAB should use a guest name or sign in. With this many posts we sometimes need a scorecard to tell all of the thousands of guests apart.

gnu, if you invest a few dollars in amber lenses to block blue light in the house in the evening, you might sleep better. Solar Shield over-glasses blue blockers. It's the lights and the television and computer monitors that may make sleep more difficult. Alice told me about this and I bought a pair and am testing them out. Put them on in the evening, maybe around 8pm, and when you feel sleepy, go to bed. Your brain hasn't been exposed to stimulating blue light for a couple of hours and should sleep better. Maybe it would help with the dreams.

Mental health day. Pretty much every day for me these days but not quite the same kinda day... until sleepies as I am not so stressed out when asleep until the nightmares kick in.

I took some of that stress by the horns today. Bought a new fridge. Maytag that qualifies for the Government du Canada 2013 Energy Rigginfriggin Savings. The Province du Nouveau NB will give me $75 toward it. My Frigidaire Leave It There Refrigyouuperator will no longer snap and crackle and bang in the middle of the night and wake me up and cause me STRESS! On Friday at oneish PM, the Maytag will be here and the Friggedupidaire will be toast. $800 plus plus $10 delivery and removal of the old piece of shit plus 13% sales taxed on. Of course, I bought it on sale at $100 bucks off on accounta... u know.

All I gotta do is clean off the half inch of frost on everything in the freezer compartment before I load it into the new fridge. Did I mention Frigidaire is a piece of shit?

"Your search - Eurodinion - did not match any documents."

Well, took Mum to the new Target store. No need to go back unless there's a reeeeeal bargain in the weekly flier. Nice wide aisles is all I liked about it. Oh, sure, the sanitary napkins are cheaper when regular prices are compared but I doubt they'll beat Jean Coutu on a sale price.

I went to the Stupidstore but the checkouts were jammed. Whilst headed for the in door, I spied a wet, filthy PC Financial Card in the lot and took it to customer service so one down, two to go. Went to Sobeys and helped a lame woman find eggs and a couple of other items. Two down. I walked all the aisles twice, desperately searching for number three and my back said "ENOUGH! GO HOME!" Helped an old lady learn how to use the automated checkout. Three! just in the nic of time. I was happy. Then, gold! The cart wrangler musta been on lunch on accounta there were two elderly couples and an elderly lady waiting for little carts so I gave mine the the first in line. Then, the pain? I put n outta me mind, sir. I stode to a cart corral, roped 6 small carts and drove em back in. Smiles and thank yous. "Nuttin toit, nuttin toit." says I. Still gotta go back to the Stupistore for frozen Petite-Eclaires on accounta Mum's 87th is Saturday. You guessed it, $9.99, regular $12.99. I AM a smart shopper.

Punning is the sole of wit, Amos. "Puns -- never apologize, never explain", you know. Repent, perhaps, but no apologies or explanations. Never. And no regrets even when you're standing tip-toe in a lake of boiling, stinking, dung heated by the puns you uttered in life, with demons gaily cavorting as they retort with their sharp barbs and jabs insulting every aspect of your sorta sordid past. Just reflect in the mirror of your soul on the pleasure your puns gave to others and you'll realize why you are there.

I had another relative who lived in the Pacific Northwest back when logging was King, Queen, and Ace. His name was Archimedes, but everyone called him "Chi". A third cousin, twice removed, on my father's side. Anyway, the family story is that Chi logged off a helluva lot of trees and one day woke up and never cut another. The company fired him, of course, and he took his turkey on the road. Chi became an early environmentalist, sabotaging high-lines and causing log jams. He got so he loved trees, a true tree-hugger. Among other things. He ended up being treated for venereal dry rot and after he died he was coated with spar varnish and used as a keel on a ferry in the Straits of Juan da Fucka. Never met him, just the family stories.

Poor old Randy. Termites? How sad. Uncle "Peg Leg" Henry Pascal never had a problem with them. His problems were with the cops because he was a rum runner... a bootlegger. He stayed at Gramps house in winter and delivered groceries for Harmers and the Willet Fruit where Gramps was the "shipper" (2ic to the guy that owned the company). Uncle Henry would get 5 gallon cans of "Hand Brand Alcohol" delivered on the CNR from Uppity Canada or from runners off the coast of NB and NS. He would keep the cans in Gramps' back yard and deliver them on a toboggan. He delivered groceries by toboggan under Gramps' employ so that worked well for the bootlegging cover. Great story about the night he had a bunch under a blanket when he was going by the cop shop but never mind that. Better yet, he sent Uncle Chic for baccy one day as he was too drunk to navigate. Chic was about 5 years old. Pegleg tamped a pipe and lit it and got Uncle chic ta put his finger in the pipe whereupon, Chic screamed blue murder. Gamma raced in and that was that. Uncle Henry was out the door, never to return.

Thence came the tale, and song, of Henry Pegleg Pascal. Bereft of his winter abode, he sought refuge in the Queens County Jail. He was successful. He used his peg leg to kick in the plate glass window of the liquor store in Chipman, nb.ca. Drunk as a skunk but smart as a fox. And snug as a bug in a rug with three square a day until spring. And, then, back ta bootleggin.

And I thought I was a smart shopper.

Of course, if you live in Canada you can never tell when you'll be snowed in for several weeks or a beaver will gnaw off your leg and you will be stumping around until help arrives. Why, my Great-Great Uncle Randolph spent an entire winter snowed in in his cabin outside of Dawson back in 1901 -- he finally had to eat his furniture just to stay alive until breakup. If he'd been a smart shopper he would have had all sorts of stuff, including his partner, frozen when he could get to them easily. Instead he ate things like boiled leg of table. Uncle Randolph was powerful glad when people finally came to see how he was, long about August (he wasn't very well liked). By then the snow had melted down to the top of the chimney and Uncle R. was feasting on mosquito stew. He finally got out by climbing up the chimney (the fire below helped speed him along). Eventually he moved to Blind River, Ontario and opened a lumberyard/delicatessen. In 1912 he was devoured by termites.

I get it now, SRS. Dunno why I didn't clue in on placing the lasagna in a cold oven. DOH! Enjoy yer scoff.

Sobeys is not expensive if you are a smart shopper. I am a regular at three grocery stores, the others being The Real Atlantic Superstore and the Coop. I buy eggs and certain other goods at Costco but I only go there when required on accounta it's so friggin busy. I read the weekly fliers on Wednesday and the sales start Thursday. It is extremely seldom that I buy anything not "on sale". I buy certain things at certain times of year. This is especially so in fall because crops are being harvested, beef cattle are being barned, etc. I buy my Xmas turkey when the turkey war is on. Every now and then, something unexpected happens. Like that there Italian fellah that said he'd never have gay people in his adverts. Last week, his pasta was selling for 99p a pound. Sobeys had a deal on Air Miles Cash spending... use $20 Air Miles Cash get 25 Air Miles (= $2.62). Pasta keeps well and even better if you plastic it and put it in the old US fridge downstairs. 21 pounds of of lasagna, spaghetti, macaroni, etc, should last me a while.

As for the gift cards, I expect $3000 will last about 16 months at present prices. If Her Majesty becomes whimsical again and decides that she and her old pals, including Barack, might have a bit of fun bombing the shit out of Iran, or Syria, or... my estmate would, of course, be adjusted downward. With a term of 16 months, I will still average a 5% ROR on my investment and that includes an allowance for the pittance of interest I would earn if I left the money in my TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account) at the Bank of Nova Scotia. I AM a smart shopper.

The lasagna is wrapped in foil and is put back into the Pyrex© pan it was formed in. If I put it in the cold oven then turn on the oven the whole thing heats more gradually and the pan doesn't break. I wouldn't put a glass pan with a frozen lasagna into a hot oven.

What are you going to do with all of those gift cards? I Googled Sobeys - even an expensive food store, it will take you a long time to use all of those cards.

He could do two round-trips to Portland, ME. Or go 1,399 miles to St. Louis. Those distances are "as the crow flies."

Of course, a lot depends on the airline the miles are good on. There's a difference between, say, Air Canada and Air Saskatchewan. Not much, perhaps, but some.

There's Trono, an Otwa, an Mnreall, an Halfax, an even Sandrews. My question is: if you divide 1,425 into an outgoing and a return, do they kick you off the plane a half mile short each way? Or a mile short on the return? Is the plane still in the air when they do this or do they land and make you walk half a mile to the terminal and (I presume) your luggage?

SRS... metal pan, I hope. I have heard stories of glass pans used thusly exploding even if they were used thusly previously. In any case, I have found the best way is to thaw such in the fridge for a couple of days first or to heat them slowly at a temp below boiling for a few hours and crank up the oven for the 40 minutes or so. I gave up following "cook from frozen" directions long ago on accounta I wants er HOT! buddy.

So, I'm up yer Sobeys yesserday fer ta get gift cards counta Sobeys put on that deal where ya get 95 Air Miles fer every $200 in gift cards right? That's $10 so that's 5%. And, soon as ya spend a dollar, that's more n 5% per yer annum eh? Even if ya buy a GeezlyIC at the Bank a Nova Scotia and lock up yer dollar fer five years ya only get 2.3%. Now, I might be just a good ol Kent County boy but I knows a good investment when I sees one. Smart shopper eh? Eh? I mean, ya gotta eat, right?

So, I says to the lass that I wants some $200 gift cards, 15. She comes back with two. I ask, she says, "You said a $200 card and a $15 card. No? I wants 15 $200 cards. She says, "Gift cards come in $10, $15, $20, $50, $100 and $200. How many of each do you want?" I says I wants 15 $200 gift cards. Blank stare. Like a deer lookin at a lantern just before the loud noise, which is what came to mind at the time as I was getting kinda annoyed. I says I wants $3000 of $200 gift cards? that would be 15 $200 cards? $3000 in total. She had a look on her face like a deer after the loud noise. She said, "I'll have to call the supervisor?" and she proceeded to explain why.

Shelly, the super on duty, was about three cashes over, setting out cash stuff. Says I, "Shelly!" and gives her a c'mere nod. Like a hello nod but with a sideways inflection added. Niceties exchanged, I says I wants 15 $200 gift cards. Beboop, beboop with the super code and the super card and she says to the lass, "Go ahead." The lass talked about how nobody has ever asked for that many cards before and other similar yak whilst she processed my request. Me, I counted the cards as she put them though. 1425 Air Miles are mine.

There's an old song? Jesus put his money in the Bank of Nova Scotia, And he never ever ever got it back. I guess he wasn't a good ol Kent County boy. Probly shopped at yer Real Atlantic Stupidstore too eh?
