An Evil Pumpkin

Posted on September 30, 2007 - Filed Under Amused, Fun | Leave a Comment

I’m not quite sure when I carved this pumpkin, but the date on the file is 1996 which I think is when I first had access to a scanner. I think the original picture had been taken a few years before that, so probably about 15 years ago. Since then I’ve only carved […]

Stuff for the Patio

Posted on September 29, 2007 - Filed Under Entertainment, shopping | Leave a Comment

Yep, we’re still a little lacking when it comes to patio furniture, just using a few lawn chairs and a card table for now while we wait for something good to come on sale. I’d like to find some nice teak outdoor furniture, it matches the style and color of our deck and is […]

Almost that time again

Posted on September 29, 2007 - Filed Under shopping | Leave a Comment

Halloween isn’t even here yet but we’re already trying to come up with christmas gift ideas. We have several people who are hard to buy for because they already have everything they need and simply aren’t into gadgets and things.  Chloe will be even harder to buy for this year since she has boxes […]

There might be a lot of crap on the internet, but one thing that isn’t crap is Ask a Ninja. Tackling tough topics such as global warming, commas and movies all in a very funny manner. If you’ve got a question that you can’t find the answer to, send it to the […]

Mac Games

Posted on September 29, 2007 - Filed Under computers, gaming | Leave a Comment

I hear Mac computers are good and have relatively few problems especially when it comes to virus & spyware infections. Personally though, I don’t like them, the 1 button mouse and the fact that good mac games are hard to find pretty much killed my interest in them years ago.  Things have changed […]

Leave yer Guns Home

Posted on September 29, 2007 - Filed Under Entertainment | Leave a Comment

When you come visiting Canada, leave yer guns home will ya?  You won’t be needing them here and if they’re found, the fines are steep.  I don’t know if it’s a common thing with religious leaders down there, but recently a Presbyterian Church leader coming across the ferry into Yarmouth was asked by customs if […]

Gossip Girl

Posted on September 27, 2007 - Filed Under Entertainment, TV | 1 Comment

Gossip Girl is a new show this season on the CW network, the same network that brings you Smallville, Supernatural and many other good shows. I’m not much of a gossiper myself, but the wife is. Then again, aren’t all women? I know we had several former employees who just couldn’t shut […]

Forest Street on Facebook

Posted on September 27, 2007 - Filed Under Forest Street, This Town | 1 Comment

It seems that some people have taken notice and created a Facebook group in order to spread the word of what is happening behind the scenes at Forest Street. Some people have questioned the source of the information and whether it’s real since they can’t find anything else about it online.
I’d like to state […]

Pumpkins for Sale

Posted on September 27, 2007 - Filed Under Food, sale | Leave a Comment

Halloween is coming and since my father grows pumpkins, and has lots more than he can sell to his usual stores, he asked if I’d try selling some for him.  Since summer is over and it’s time to put away the fans, I had some extra space in the front display window.  They range in […]

Game Goods

Getting the best armor, the biggest sword or the fastest flying mounts in World of Warcraft can take a long time to save up for. An epic flyer costs around 6000 gold, so even if you grind away and earn 100g a day it will still take 2 months. An alternative is to […]

New DVDs this week

Posted on September 26, 2007 - Filed Under DVD, Entertainment | Leave a Comment

There’s finally some decent movies coming out again instead of just 1 or 2 little things that no one has heard of.  This week we have Death Proof, the first half of the Grindhouse double feature by Quentin Tarantino starring Kurt Russel.  Filmed to look like an old style action horror flick and yes, it’s […]

Forest Street Past, Present and Future

Posted on September 25, 2007 - Filed Under Forest Street, Ranting, This Town | 7 Comments

I’m borrowing these pictures from Rod Hemeon’s Yarmouth Streetscape website to show that Forest Street stands today almost identical to how it looked over 100 years ago. It may not look like this for much longer though, as the plans of certain people begin coming to light.

The way things are going, I don’t think […]

Design your own workbench

Posted on September 25, 2007 - Filed Under Business | Leave a Comment

The repair area I had set up in the basement is pretty plain. The workbench is just a counter top with a power bar screwed to it. It gets the job done, but a custom made bench from FormaSpace would be awesome. Wide enough for a computer and with a raised back […]
