I am very tempted though and will shoot you an e-mail to let you know either way as soon as we talk it over.
    The money is insane there right now and I gotta say after 36 years packing gauges, a Fluke clip on and a drill either up a #@%^ing ladder or into a @!^$ing crawlspace......I'm leaning towards Calgary too. I can take a desk job, visit two of my daughters in the city and @$^& the communist govt coming into BC in a month. I'll be GD if I am going to turned into a slave again as an owner whilst they 'dish' out the money to the lazy, stupid, useless and complaining......In my Dad's day they used to let the lazy stupid ones die.....it was called natural selection and they didn't have Walmart then........hey, I think I connected something....

    Art the NDP here would make Obamanomics look right wing/tea party buddy......their manifesto is to take EVERYONE's wealth at death that would/could/should be willed to their heirs and direct it all to the state......I'd love to see that happen......might cure these BC flakey fruits and nuts once and for all.....

    Geeze MR.... you moved 1/2 way around the world once.....what's another 2400 miles...? When you start selling some of those guns for food......you'll be ready....
    BTW...do you know what union rate is in Alberta........................................... .................................................. ..............................................it's called minimum wage.....

    Older boy had merit badge classes this morning, so dad slept in till 6, let him sleep in till 6:45 and out the door by 7:30.

    Architecture merit badge earned and home by 2:00 with a couple of stops along the way and some dad and son time in the car. Sometimes, it's easier to have THOSE talks with a captive audience....


    Now, oil changed in ATV#2 (son's machine) and he did it himself and didn't spill ALL of it on the garage floor.

    Got a couple of rounds of archery practice in.

    Birthday dinner this evening for Boy#2 and he's picked a gas station sandwich shop for his birthday dinner..... Whatever. It's his decision.


    First mushroom walk of the year tomorrow plus time to hang trail cameras.

    So that I can see pictures of critters all year around.

    Got 2 sets of SD cards and I'll swap them and batteries about once a month.

    Keep tabs on movement patterns and suchlike, so that I can find the best stand sites.

    I've only got 2 cameras right now, but I'd like to ultimately get 4-6 cameras going.


    Plus, we've got Turkey season coming at the end of April and Bear season in November if I can get a line on where there are a few.

    Reminds me of when I was younger, the exhaust fan in the girls locker room when turned on you could stand under the hood and have a view into the shower area. They remodeled right after I figured it out, at 12 I guess it wasn't a big deal anyways lol

    'Morning Bret and everyone. Doug, I completely understand you as I wouldn't want the NDP to be running the show over here either. Doug, I have been considering the move to alpha-bravo, but it involved going during the 3rd year of my apprenticeship, so I can cut the process down by a year and go for the big bucks as a journeyman early on. The Mrs. isn't too keen on the idea of going now but didn't give a definite no either. Gonna take more yapping.

    REALLY? Damn here we were thinking of hitting up the mainland in a few years. So now the decision is communism vs. Torontonians. Well.....when I put it that way, Id almost rather live in Great best of all Korea, North Korea!

    Oh Canada, Our home and native land.
    Give me free health care, though I wasnt even born here!
    With angered hearts we see the rise of the prices at Timmies
    God keep our land, and our subsidized Audi.
    Oh Canada please stand on guard for me.

    Sorry for all the broken sarcasm detectors. The gruppyness is strong with this one.

    In other news passed my basic/block 2/first time you get laid off to go to school. Now I hear about it when I F up. One step forward...two steps back. And im expected to start passing my knowledge down to first years now. Joys of apprenticeship.

    Doug, do you see the great new institution that Ontario has brought in? A yearly rate to keep your license under the guise of actually doing stuff for you as an apprentice and journeyman.

    Thank god Ontario now has a system to review training ratios all the time when there is more workers than work.
    Get money, get paid.
