Rondriso Farm in Cloverdale is run by Very Nice People

People are naturally good, especially Farmer Ron and his crew at
Rondriso Farm, who found my lost camera in pumpkin

A week ago on October 13th, my little pumpkin had a school field trip
to a farm to learn about cows and ride a truck to the pumpkin patch.
We had a lot of fun, and probably a little too much because my wife
dropped our camera filled with hundreds of photos saved on a 4GB
memory card. We took turns looking for it but it was next to
impossible, like searching for a needle in a haystack (or pumpkin
patch for that matter). We eventually gave up and Farmer Ron said that
they sometimes do turn up when his crew goes and clears up the patch.
I thought it was a lost cause, until I got the call from Ron
yesterday. Sweet. A family friend found it buried in the soil, so I
was surprised it even turned up. I guess we must have trampled over it
while making a sweep of the patch field.

Farmer Ron and his crew are one of the good guys.

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
