Re: “Newspaper Bitch

I too dislike the recent changes. I have stopped visiting the site regularly as well. It used to be a once a day visit for me, but I haven't visited in weeks. I still buy the Sat and Sun paper editions but that is because I am usually off-web for the weekends, and newsprint works well for starting the furnace.

Re: “It's Called a School Bus

I see nothing wrong with a class trip taking a public bus. Environmentally, fiscally and socially I think the students and teachers made the right decision using Metro Transit. They were travelling from a site with a bus stop, to a site with a bus stop.

The only improvement I would suggest is perhaps call Metro Transit beforehand to give them an opportunity to put an accordian on the route.

If this group paid fare (exactly like you complainers) then you really need to stfu, and stay off public transit.

Re: “Ohh Baby!

Took my wife and I about 30 months to see a fertility specialist. Both my wife and I went through all the tests before we saw her, blood, semen, dye tests, ultra sounds.

By the end of it, you could basically parrot the docs/nurses since you had heard the questions so often.

We just kept at it and eventually conceived naturally. Have me a set of twin boys at home now. We started the adoption process, but that is a long long road as well.

I know it sounds shallow, but just try and chill, relax, enjoy all the sex, and stay positive!

best of luck

Re: “Save the Trees

It is all pioneer species trees they are mowing down, more like white birch and alders - stuff grows like weeds. The ways were originally cleared when they installed the highway/powerline. Last year they did the road shoulders, the work you are referencing this year is by NS Power to keep the power lines clear. You do like your power yea? If you want to complain, complain about new highway/road construction through virgin forest, not about existing right-of-way maintenance.

Re: “Get a Grip

My wifes home was struck in the early 80's a day before Xmas. She remembers clearly her father and uncles tossing anything they could grab out the windows, as her mom and sisters stood on the lawn and watched the house burn. Nothing but a chimney standing by morning. She woke me in a panic the night of the storm (and every night there is thunder)...must close all the windows, unplug everything. Over a decade living with her has taught me to just accept this, but at least my influence on her now allows us to sleep in our own bed instead of on the basement floor.

Re: “Nasty Manager

A couple things come to mind for me; 23 people for $320 is a steal, serving a 23 person table is a PITA, not tipping on a bill that size is inappropriate, and if they have a liquor license they can eject and ban without cause. So you complain to head office, go get another meal there, rub those employees face in it, and wonder......why is this dish so salty?
