Birthday Party at Fun4Kidz

It was my niece Halle's birthday party this past weekend and we were
were invited to take part in the festivities - thanks. The kids really
enjoyed themselves and so did I as I climbed after K and C through the
numerous tunnels in the playcenter. The indoor playcentre is located
inside the Park Royal mall and it was booked for the private party,
closing it off to the public. There were two on-duty staff to help
with childcare, but one at the end after the mall closed at 6pm. Fresh
socks were purchased by Halle's mom, my cousin, for kids (and adults)
who didn't wear any so that was thoughtful of her.

There was cheese and pepperoni pizza in the separate party room and
juice boxes provided for all the kids. There must have been over 20
kids and they all fit in the long dinner table. Chocolate ice-cream
cake was served and we all sang "Happy Birthday Halle". Staff took
care of the event schedules, food/drink service, cake-cutting, and
cleanup. They even let Halle's dad use the microphone when pizza was

Mother's Day in Whiterock

Here is a picture my brother Jade took of me and my wife at the Whiterock wharf. We took my mother out to lunch during Mother's day by a Greek restaurant across the street from the beach and then headed out here after lunch in an attempt to walk off what we ate. The tide was low that day and we were able to walk under the walkway for some awesome picture taking. To the right is a picture of my beautiful wife Grace.

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
