Dave, Good luck with the upcoming Vegas convention & meetings. As much as I enjoyed the social aspect of those types of events by the time if was over I felt like a caged animal. Between meetings, presentations, prebooked meal get togethers it seemed that no downtime was left for the participants.

Thanks Bill, you've obviously done these events before haven't you. :laughing7:

Companies know they have their staff and dealers as a captive audience for a few days, so they try to pack as much information into the time we have there as possible. Every day from Monday to Thursday from 7am - 10pm is full of training sessions, trade shows and information presentations. I leave my house on Sunday morning at 5am and my flight doesn't get back into Toronto until 12:30am on Friday morning... talk about a long week. :tongue3:

Just needed to think out of the box.
Have a meeting while eating while attending the strip club.:laughing7::laughing7::laughing7:

You know what Jim, I've been to Vegas at least 12 times for work related trade shows over the past 22 years and I've never been to a Gentleman's Club... in Nevada anyway. :laughing7:

I find to get the best value for your money in Vegas, you have to get away from the strip and eat where the locals eat. :thumbsup:

Good morning pirates!

It’s snowing here. 1-3” expected. 20F feels like 12F.

We received another 8" of the white stuff here last night WD... thought you'd like to see these pics of someone enjoying herself in the snow. :laughing7:

Could be the school I found it in is mainly immigrants from Mexico so they bring a lot back from there that they past to their kids could be possible.

You're probably right there John, my first thought when I saw it was that it's 'coin silver'. :icon_scratch:

Jim, When we bought in 1985 we had a 5 year locked in mortgage at 12.25%.....mind you it had been up around 18%/20% range shortly before so we didn't take any chances. Paid an extra 15% on top of that to speed up the payments. When it came due we just went with 6 months at a time at about half that rate. 8 1/2 years and no more mortgage. It felt great!

Just to give you some perspective on today's rate here in Ontario Bill, my wife and I just renewed our mortgage for the final time last week at 2.89% for 5 years. (locked-in) We want our mortgage to be finally paid-off and done by 2027. :thumbsup:

No stuffing and I forgot the cranberry sauce :(

Looks delicious Roger, your gravy looks amazing! :thumbsup: I'm making chicken thighs with potatoes, brussel sprouts and homemade gravy for dinner tonight. I start by boiling the chicken for 20mins before I put it in the oven, I find this ensures their moist and cooked all the way through.

Oakley is so stinking adorable!

Thanks WD, she's in need of a haircut, but I like how she looks with longer hair. When she gets shaved, she looks like an albino rat. :laughing7:

Just read this post on our Canadian detecting site and thought it would be nice to share it considering where I’m going on Sunday. I wonder what his wife would have said when he came back in and says, "Honey, guess what I just found detecting in the back yard?". :laughing7:

In the September 1980, Kevin Hillier took his new metal detector out for a spin in his tiny hometown of Wedderburn, Australia. Instead of a bottle cap or a paper clip, he found a 61-pound golden nugget barely a foot underground. The "Hand of Faith" is now in Las Vegas at the Golden Nugget Casino.

Makes me think that I’m overdue for a visit to Fremont Street. :thumbsup:

Dave, That's quite the piece of gold I did see it on a trip to Vegas some serious money there at today's prices.
