RE: Down Under

Do you mind if I add to the question? Did you also notice or find strange that the Sun goes across the sky in the opposite direction? From N. America, the Sun moves across the sky from the left to the right. South of the Equator, it moves from the right to the left. You wouldn't really notice this however if you were quite close to the Equator as there the Sun appears to pass overhead.

RE: Want to know about the airplanes in your area ?

I was using that last week when we were in Ontario. I saw a couple of planes flying almost due north. I couldn't figure out where theses large planes would be flying, so I looked up this site. One was going to Hong Kong and the other to Bejing! Doesn't make much sense if you look at a map, but look at a globe and it does!

RE: Interesting weather fact.

It's amazing that my little fact about the comparative temperatures in Ontario and Mexico on ONE DAY led to a discussion on climate change! Please learn the difference between 'Weather' and 'Climate' ! :)

RE: Record warm Christmas in the East this week !

Amazingly, yesterday here, just outside Toronto, early morning, it was warmer than Mazatlan in tropical Mexico!

RE: Interesting weather fact.

But because of the time difference it was very early in Mazatlan and that makes a big difference either 4:30 or 5:30 in the morning. I did think of that, but realised that it was just before dawn here, which is normally the coldest part of the day, and COLDER than at 4or 5:30 which is what it was in Maz! Of course it's a LOT warmer in Maz than it is here now!

Interesting weather fact.

We're visiting family in Ontario, and like the rest of the continental NE, the weather is unseasonably warm. This morning at 730am, the temp was 15C. I just happened to click on Mazatlan's figure, and it was 13C! Yes that was at the airport, which is often a little cooler, but even Playa Escondido was 15C. For those of you that are metrically challenged, those figures are 55F and 58F.:)

RE: Star Wars 7

I enjoyed the first one(ep 4?) and saw the next two, but not as enjoyable. Saw some of the next series, but thought them a bit infantile so never saw a full episode. Maybe it's because I have always been a big Science Fiction fan and have never considered any of them to be REAL SF. although many would.

RE: Sound Bar for TV

I'm not sure if you can use a soundbar to play your own music. I'm guessing not but you could always check if it has extra inputs and a way to switch from one sound source to another. What I would check though is that if it has a centre channel and whether you can turn the volume on that up and the L/R speakers down. This is what we have done with our home system and it works, as the speech is normally carried on the centre speaker and music, and background sound on the side and rear channels.

RE: Vehicle shopping

Our daily driver is a 2006 Mazda 6. We have no plans to change it as it is running fine, but when we do, we want something that we can get in & out of easily. It seems that the older we get, it is easier to climb up into a vehicle rather than climbing down. The trouble is, other than trying to get in and out of the vehicles, there is rally no way to tell what vehicles will fit the bill. The closest that we can get to is to look at the overall height of a vehicle, but this often doesn't indicate the height of the seat as headroom can really vary. There should be a 'seat height' figure included in all vehicle specifications. This will really help us and our aging population! This is probably the best idea I've had all week! :)

RE: broad brimmed Hats for men- suggestions

I am very clever and have a very big head! I can never find a hat big enough to fit, XL, 7 5/8 are too small and I can just about squash a baseball cap on if it's on the last ONE peg. A few years ago, my kids bought me a supersize Tilley Hat. Fits great, and I think I look very dashing in it! Oh, and it's Canadian! Tilley Hats

RE: Bodies of Australian surfers found in Sinaloa

So just to confirm then, this van was ambushed on the main toll highway, 15D? Is there any more information on how this gang was actually found, or was it a case of rounding up the 'Usual Suspects'?

RE: Question about moen kitchen faucet

I would just pop them off, and go to an auto parts store for some replacements. That's what I did, and measured them with the plastic micrometer that I picked up at the dollar store! measure both ID & OD !

RE: Are you getting enough Vitamin D ?

"Sorry. In the future I'll write *This Is A Joke* when I make one. I thought that the smiley face would do the trick, but I guess not. " I knew you were joking Jim! So was I! I thought that the comment about flatulence would do the trick, guess not! :) I'm at 37.38 degrees latitude, which I suppose makes me above 37 degrees. But I'm vitamin D deficient, too, even though I spend a fair amount of time in the warm months outdoors, and quite naked, in the sunshine. Doc has me on 2,000 IU supplements daily. You need to be outside in the winter too, that's the problem. Above 37 degrees the Sun doesn't get high enough in the winter to provide the necessary radiation, even if you are outside in the Sun. At 37.38, you are almost south enough, but if you don't go outside, because it's too cold, you may get to be deficient. After all, ignoring the climate,and nearby high mountains, every where on Earth gets the same amount of sunshine. It's just that us poor sods close to the pole, just don't get enough Sun for the winter months.

RE: Out of Country Travel Insurance - Travel to US

RBC one reduces to 7 days coverage after 65, IIRC.

RE: Are you getting enough Vitamin D ?

A bowl of ice cream contains 2% of your calcium RDA. That's 50 bowls of ice cream, Jim ! EVERY day. That's equivalent to FIFTEEN times your RDA of saturated fats! That's a lot of flatulence!

RE: Are you getting enough Vitamin D ?

If you live north of 37°, eg LA , then you will not get enough sun to make enough of your own Vitamin D in the winter months. The Sun has to be at least 50° high in the sky.
