  1. Even fooled with the spelling..... Scoff Restaurant 159 MAIN ROAD, JOE BATTS ARM, NL https://scoffrestaurant.com
  2. It does not seem to me that the owners have widely advertised the position or its responsibilities - nothing in any of the internet job sites that I can find. I believe the last two managers were hired from the U.S. (could be wrong about that admittedly) Despite the trail closures etc. the optics aren't good for any government help given the broader needs of society currently. Just blue skying here but here's a potential solution.....the Lesters hand over the OFSC publicity contract they have to Craig Nicholson and spouse and completely divest themselves from any OFSC involvement.
  3. For some reason, was reading your headline as... Now I got it....windshield mounted mirrors.
  4. Not sure why they have not come up with rear view cameras yet.
  5. That's accounting teacher retired - early - due to very successful investing and discipline over the years. Still have a few irons in the fire though. As for secondary level stock market and other investment strategy games many are available - such as this one: https://www.stockmarketgame.org I suppose given your abhorrence of living off the government you'll be donating the tax payer's contribution to the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan to charity?
  6. What's your spouse say about that? As I understand from a previous post on here, she is a high school principal? No? Maybe you could be a guest lecturer.. As per Muskoka 1 - other than a rudimentary outline of personal finance concepts, unless the kid has got a part-time job and is handling his/her own money, the information usually goes in one ear and out the other. Most figure they will count on their rap music careers for a good living, and leave the financial end to an accountant. Telling them the tragic tale of MC Hammer didn't work either. What I found most usefu
  7. If you have kids, buy them the book and get them on the right track early. Most parent don't talk to their kids about money, nor can the majority explain various investment options.
  8. Not sure about entitlement - I would say confused priorities. In the "Wealthy Barber" by David Chilton, his strategy is "pay yourself first". (first edition) He advocates your allocations should include pension and savings payments each month to (for) yourself in addition to paying your external bills. If day to day bills are paid and RRSP's and TFSA's, emergency funds etc. are taken care of to top up levels each year, indulge yourself with what is left over for other things in life.
  9. Dammit Gadgetman - this is snowmobiling! This thriftiness you are displaying is way out of character and extremely contrary to the stereotype! (glad your sled fits in your old trailer)
  10. I scrubbed the Made in Michigan decal off the sides as I thought that the poor spelling would reflect badly on the state's education system.... The axle on mine is from Lippert. U.S. made and parts available. I am talking about the inline hybrid 7'X 16' , so there is no confusion. https://actiontrailers.ca/shop/build-a-trailer/snowmobile-motorcycle/inline-hybrid/sled-shed-aluminum-pro-starr-bullet-series-rear-ramp-door-7-wide-inline-hybrid-snowmobile/ The Prostarr Bullit hybrid advertised on Action Trailer website does not have a front door.

  11. Another alternative for you to consider - comes with standard wheels, spare, front door, track matts all included. Looks like leaf springs though. https://www.georgianbaytrailers.com/default.asp?page=xInventoryDetail&id=7308574&p=1&s=(Sort By)&d=D&fr=xAllInventory Parry Sound area.
  12. On this topic - I usually keep a DESS key in the console of the truck for the convenience when unloading sled from trailer at destination and the other key is packed with my riding gear. Does anyone know if sitting in the cold for long periods reduces any type of battery life in the DESS key? How about the necessity of keeping the DESS keys away - at least 5 feet - from other "programmed" keys such as those for your truck?
  13. It may very well be that what passes for good quality and excellence is different in other countries than what is expected here. In the case of the Pinewood in Barry's Bay, the previous owners were always upgrading and making improvement to the facility including some not usually noticed by patrons - better ventilation, hard wood floors, better mattresses etc. and promoted a sense of concern for the environment. I hope they received a good return on their initial investment and hard work. Thanks Grover for the mention of the Mountain View by Wilno - had no reason to try it out befo
  14. The Pinewood was our place of choice in Barry's Bay - we enjoyed quite a good relationship with the previous owners who moved to Barry's Bay and motel ownership to get out of the city.....hopefully the new owners can keep the same level of service as previously provided....motel is right on the trail....

  15. Good eye PLC! - makes the batter doubly useful - pancakes and dipping for a fish fry. BTW - a good recipe if you've got a bit of cod around the house... Not sure how it would work with pancakes....
