RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

pet peeve? gas stations that don't convert currency. $100 ($110 can), buy $50 in gas and get $50 in change, they make $10 extra. GGGRRRRR Are you kidding us! What do you think would happen if I tried to buy gas in KC with a Canadian hundred dollar bill?

RE: Moving

A couple of years ago, we were thinking of moving across the country to be closer to our kids. I checked with a local moving company to get an idea of the total costs and it worked out to something like a dollar per pound. This gave me an idea on what to take and what to give away or sell. Your move isn't as far, but you could get a similar figure from a local mover.

RE: Whistlers at Jasper--no tow vehicles allowed?

Is this what you are looking at? Maximum Vehicles per Site: 1 vehicle Exceptions for RVs towing a vehicle If you have two camping units (2 tents or 1 RV/camper and 1 tent), no towed vehicles are allowed. It is confusing, but I think that they are only referring to anything that is powered a vehicle. So a truck & trailer is only one vehicle, hence the exception for an RV (motorhome) towing a vehicle.

RE: This is why some people don't fly!

Something I have seen mentioned a few times is 'First World Problems'. We all know what Third World Problems are, lack of food, clean water, proper shelter, poor or no healthcare, constant war, or fear of war, total government corruption, etc. Most of us though, don't have any idea on how bad these problems can be. Then you have 'First World Problems'! These include, not being able to open all your cupboards when your slide is in, water bottles that are difficult to open, computers that take more than 15 seconds to boot up, sitting in a cramped aircraft seat for four hours, being forced to take off your shoes when going through security. Yes, life is tough sometimes, even for us top 5%!

RE: Ammo OK?

Thank you. I thought closing the thread was a bit precipitous. Don't understand what the word 'precipitous' means in this context. :h (of an action) done suddenly and without careful consideration.

RE: Pets in a Resturant

I grew up in the UK, where it was quite acceptable to take your pet into a pub. My friend even took his pet goat into our local, until the goat 'let fly' one day! This, however, was when the pubs sold no food other than packets of 'crisps'. They still allowed the animals when I was last back there a few years ago, but this could have been in the 'non food' rooms. It was always handy for some to say, "Just taking the dog out for a walk, won't be long!"

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

Be careful. The contracts are often full of legalese to the point where you may need to be both a Doctor and a Lawyer to answer the questions correctly to prevent them from denying coverage after the fact. I have to agree with this. As I said earlier, how can these plans work? Without any subsidy from the government or a pension plan, the premiums that you pay, on AVERAGE, will have to be MORE than the benefit that you receive! The insurance company is there to make a profit.

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

"Thus, look to your pocket book. I think what we all have to expect to come down the pike is drug coverage complete. Quite a few countries do that for all now". We sort of have that in BC now. It's called Fair Pharmacare, and even though many have not signed up for it, it provides a graduated drug plan based on your income.

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

I know what you mean, and have seen it advertised, but have no actual experience of it. If you think about it though, how could it really work? In Canada, we don't really have primary medical insurance, we have provincial healthcare, paid for out of our taxes. Most of us also have subsidiary medical insurance to pay for those items, dental etc, that are not covered by the province. Most of these however are subsidized by our employers as a employment or pension benefit. Remove this subsidy and the premiums would double or even higher, and you would end up with a situation like US healthcare insurance where you have an extra 'layer' between the patient and healthcare provider, who has to make a profit. Insurance is to allow us to financially survive a disaster that may not happen. That's why it can work for some things but not for others.

RE: Astronomy Star Parties/Events 2015

Is that $2.58 charge for the mobile version? I paid nothing to put it on our laptop. A bit of additional information on Orion for you, nice picture by the way. The bright star at the top of the constellation, Orion's 'right shoulder' is the red supergiant 'Betelgeuse', visually, it looks quite red. Below that are three stars in a row, this is the famous Orion's 'Belt'. Below the star at the left end of the belt, and pointing downwards and slightly to the left, are three fainter stars, the middle one of which is slightly fuzzy. This fuzzy one is actually the 'Great Orion Nebula' the brighter parts of which can be seen with ordinary binoculars.data:image/jpeg;base64,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

The link is to a Mexican news site that is in English. It would appear to show all kinds of news, good, bad and everything in between. This is in contrast to some of the sites run by local business people that show only good news and other sites with their own agendas that only show the bad news!

Amazing that it is considered a supervoid even though it has only 20% LESS matter than elsewhere. It's tempting to think that this was maybe where the Big Bang originated, but of course that point is everywhere!
