time for a new pack

Yes MEC does carry Deuter.

I don't have a catalog here at home but I am pretty sure there are some updates to the Deuter bike backs coming for Spring. Nothing revolutionary but some changes.

Look at this forum

Will an "angry" Cam respond to syncro?

Will failed candidates return to odorize the board?

Can The Shore forum rise above NBR?

Tune in tomorrow for another episode of "How the Wheel Turns"!

When I moved here in 2006 the soap opera that the Shore can be was referred to by "As the Shore Turns."

The Decline of Vancouver.

I don't agree with people complaining about their property taxes… Like their property goes up in value by $400k in one year and they complain that they have to pay another few thousand dollars in property taxes. Step back and think about that for a second - someone's net worth just went up $400k in 12 months and they gotta pay (say an extra $4k of property taxes) - they are still up $396k!! I just made those numbers up, but you get what I'm saying.

I do understand that its more of a cashflow issue than anything though - so people should have the option to defer but they should still be charged interest on the amount deferred.

You guys need to look up how property taxes are calculated.

Just because a house goes up 400k doesn't mean you pay taxes directly proportional to that increase.

If the whole neighborhood goes up roughly the same percentage than you're taxes will stay the same (unless the municipality changes the rate then every ones taxes will go up).

Donald Trump... Narcissist in Chief!

I like the sounds of this Walter White guy that Trump has picked to run the DEA.

New Ridgeline.

Toss the stroller and extra baby gear in the rear bed trunk to keep it dry.

Should drive much more sporty than the old Taco.

You won't get the Toyota bro points in the shuttle lot.

Close one yesterday

I assume it was near the Bridal/BP/R[HTML_REMOVED]R/Salamander junction where things got messed up?

Care to disclose the rate? I've got 3 1/2 years left in my 5 year variable at 2.1% that I can convert to fixed at any time.

We went with Spin moving from Vancity.

I'll message you.

Feels good to have recently renewed a 5 yr fixed at a really good rate.

From memory I am pretty sure you'll get denied doing a bunch of shuttle laps after the cones are up, but as stated they'll let you retrieve once.

Does the gate at the Mushroom lot get closed every night? if so, what time?

Gate to the lot doesn't usually close, they control access to the road at the bottom. Not sure exactly what time it closes but expect it at dark/dusk.

n=1

100 percent correct.

My comment is just wondering how things went for him. Who knows after selling his place he might have invested it and made great returns on the market. Or put it all on black on the roulette table and won. Or found a tear down in WV and built something and flipped it at the peak.

But thinking 2011 was an all time peak and the crash was coming wasn't an accurate call.

He died waiting.

I always think about another client our realtor had back in 2011. He has said the client sold off in West Van and got out of the market thinking it was going to tank then buy back in when it was low.

Wonder how that worked out for him.
