Pacquiao vs Mosley pay-per-view event at my in-law's was a blast

We couldn't wait for the fight all week and when the event finally
aired on pay-per-view this past weekend, it was awesome. The fight
itself wasn't that great and as I predicted, would last past round 12
for a unanimous decision.

There were tons of people there including family, friends, and
neighbors. Kids were running up and down stairs, and there were tons
of Filipino food prepared by killer combo of cooks Ava/Weng/Grace. The
Canucks playoff game was on another channel against Nashville which
provided a great filler while we waited for the main event. As you
know, we lost that but I'm not too worried. What is important is that
I won the pool that night by guessing a unanimous decision for our boy
PacMan. Cha-ching.

The night was followed by a friendly game of poker and tong-its. There
was a few late-comers carrying case of beer that night, and it was a
great party. Kudos go out to Ava and Philip for hosting it.

Frustrating experience we had with a Honeywell baseboard heater

Here is a review of a baseboard heater for use in your basement if you are in the market for one. I just thought I would write one up because of the hassle I had to go through with my initial choice for a heater. I bought the Honeywell HZ-515C baseboard heater at Canadian Tire for $59 back in August 2008. It was for the basement suite where our friends Gabriel and Natasha are. It worked well for medium to large rooms and was quiet which was a great selling feature. However, by April 2009, the unit had stopped working and I was forced to get it replaced. The replacement warranty was 3 years for these units and it was only 9 months of use. The replacement unit was fine until it stopped working again in March 2010. This was almost a full year of use but I wasn't impressed at this point. I went back to Canadian Tire and wasn't surprised to see that they no longer carry this model. Even if they did carry it, I would probably just pick a different model for the same amount which is w

How I Fixed My In-Sink Garburator

Our kitchen garburator had been out of order for the past few weeks and I thought I would give it some tender loving care this Christmas Holidays because we'll need it. It's a Mainline Model 1900 and has been very dependable for the past 6 years. This happened a few times before and all I did was run a wooden barbeque stick through the serrated edges of the garburator blade to dislodge whatever gunk was in there and that did the trick. It didn't this time and I was ready to spend some money.  I was tempted to call our plumber and have them fix this for me (here take my money) but I thought to myself, how hard can this be. I was also tempted to take the whole thing apart to clean whatever was causing the blade to not spin but I'm sure I would have lost a few fingers or two if I did that. What did work was using something everyone already has lying around the kitchen - a butter knife. Take the butter knife and find the gap in the blade to insert the tip of the kn

Product Review: My Vitapur Water Dispenser Has Started Leaking

We purchased the Vitapur VWD5446BLS water dispenser from Canadian Tire in 2008 and it's taken until 2012 for an issue to come up with it. I would say that is very good for any product. The problem is that it leaks and creates a puddle when plugged in overnight. When unplugged however, there is no leak. I checked the coils in the back and there were some condensate the first time it happened so I reduced the mperature setting so that it's not too cold. However, I think I set it in the reverse direction, setting it colder, and I'm not sure if that caused another puddle overnight. It seems extreme if the issue is with condensation. I emailed the makers GreenwayHp Support and received great customer service. They walked me through the obvious, like check for cracks in the water bottle, but in the end I wouldn't be able to get any service for it because it was already out of warranty. I asked for local repair shops and they suggested Langara Appliance in Burnaby. I
