Paint The Town Red, An Angry Hue of Red

The ladies all went out for a night of R&R to a bar with a live band
this past weekend. I'm not naming names but one of them was
propositioned by someone I would probably refer to as a female pimp
(also known as 'madam'), to an elderly man she introduced as her

The way it was explained to me, the ladies were all approached by an
elderly Filipina woman that night, who asked if one of them would be
interested in hooking up with her friend. The ladies described her as
a stereotypical madam wearing provocative clothing and one even
mentioned that she lacked 'support' in the chest region especially
given the attire she had on.

Of course they politely said no but this woman still brought over her
'friend', an elderly East Indian man and introduced him as Harold or
Harry to one of the ladies. She singled out one of the ladies in the
group for her friend Harold (or Harry, whatever). I thought that this
was all very good and normal but then she whispered that he is very,
very rich. Come on! This has to be some form of pimping, right? Did
she really think that they would jump all over her friend after
mentioning that he was exorbitantly wealthy? For most people, it would
probably invoke a negative reaction. Is it just me or are you also
seeing red?

This story infuriates me to no end. The elderly Filipina woman saw a
table of possibly single Filipina women, all beautiful and dolled-up,
and probably thought to herself that they were out there to land
themselves a 'very, very' rich husband. Unfortunately, I hear this
sort of thing happen in other circumstances and I wonder if there is
any truth to this stereotype? I'd better watch what I write because
it's likely a touchy subject talking about real or imagined
stereotypes. I don't want to be crucified here, I'm just saying.

The ladies all naturally stopped talking to the both of these
characters. Thankfully, the two left the ladies alone and they said
they had a wonderful time out.

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

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.
