    salvia

    I totally had the couch thing happen too, I was fighting not to be sucked into another dimension, the force was so powerful, and all of the Queen of Heart's card guards were suddenly in the livingroom (who were actually my friends) and they started to chant "Don't pee, don't pee", but the force of the couch vortex was too strong and it forced my to pee. It's very tricky stuff, I can say that I don't want to go there again, but maybe it was just my turn for a 'bad' trip. I still feel really bad for peeing that couch...
  6. As I intend to get on Friday, you in?? I thought you were changing your location to Schwaterloo!

  10. Such a good time!! My knees felt like someone hollowed them out with an icecream scoop this morning, but I say "F-you arthritis! I'm gonna keep dancin' like I'm a spry 18 year old till I can't walk anymore!!" Seriously though, freakin' wicked tunes, I had enough fun to last me for quite awhile! You guys should come to Schwaterloo more often!
  11. I keep hopin' for a snowday! Can I get some heady snowday vibes??
  12. Hey D! We'll be planning some road trips very soon, and your couch is one of our stops for sure! Maybe you should come to the K-Dub and finally meet your son, he is almost three now...
  13. In for Friday, Hal's tagging in for Saturday-looking forward to seeing all you silly folks!!
  14. Happy Birthday to the best big brother a kid-sister could ever ask for!! (My therapist wants you to give her a call...) No, but seriously though, you rock Cubby!! I can safely say that I wouldn't be the person I am today without your tremendous influence (some might not say that's a good thing). Keep on being a nutbar, Love Stink

    Forgiveness

    Are you talking about Jebus?? Cause I don't jive that way man. Seriously though, I find it harder to forgive people who knowingly hurt you or cause you troubles.

    Forgiveness

    That's very true. Some things are unforgivable. I will forgive most people for many things, but if I am burned too many times I just plain give up.

    Sunny Spain

    This was on Mr. Something Something's Myspace blog, thought I'd share it. It's pretty cool stuff, I've heard about it before as my mother/sister-in-law and nephew live in Madrid. It is apparently sunny there 350 days of the year or something, so this makes a lot of sense... [color:blue]Hello friends, Check out the article below for some uplifting news from Spain. If the Spanish government can make solar panels mandatory on new and renovated bulidings why couldn't (y)ours do the same? Let's put the public good back in public hands. Help us spread the word and put some pressure on the people in office. Hope you're well. Peace and blessings. /Johan PS. Thanks to Boiling Frog Media for this news item - www.boilingfrog.ca PS II. Thanks to everybody who came out to our shows in Quebec and on the East Coast; we hope to see you again soon. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Spain requires new buildings use solar power Homes must use it for hot water, commercial sites for electricity Reuters Updated: 5:32 a.m. HT, Nov 13, 2006 MADRID - Solar panels are now compulsory on all new and renovated buildings in Spain as part of the country's efforts to bring its building rules up to date and curb growing demand for energy, ministers said on Monday. Until now Spain's building standards have dated from the 1970s and have done little in seeking to improve energy efficiency. "We have to make up the time we have lost," Environment Minister Cristina Narbona said, inaugurating a seminar on the new technical building code. The code will come into force fully next March but the energy saving element was implemented on Sept. 29. This means new homes have to be equipped with solar panels to provide between 30 and 70 percent of their hot water, depending on where the building is located and on its expected water usage. New non-residential buildings, such as shopping centers and hospitals, now have to have photovoltaic panels to generate a proportion of their electricity. Solar power has not yet taken off in Spain, largely because subsidies have been directed at wind energy, and it provided a negligible amount of the country's electricity in 2005. Other measures in the new building code enforce the use of better insulation, improve the maintenance of heating and cooling systems and increase the use of natural light. "The new standards will bring energy savings of 30 to 40 percent for each building and a reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy consumption of 40 to 55 percent," the Environment and Housing Ministries said in a joint statement. The Housing Ministry is trying to rein in the amount of new building, although it is Spain's local and regional governments that are responsible for planning permission. "In the last decade we have built the equivalent of a quarter of all the urban area that existed until then," Housing Minister Maria Antonio Trujillo told the seminar. The building standards code should limit the damage of continued new construction and is the most significant legal change for the sector in the last 30 years, she said. The construction lobby Asprima estimates that the new requirements will increase building costs by between 8 and 12 percent. Trujillo said that was "absolutely untrue" and that the extra cost was 1 percent, which would be offset by the energy savings achieved.
  20. Right, I think we have talked about this before, sorry I spaced! We already have a 'Chester T. Molester' and a 'Stanley Bojangles' (he says hi djmelbatoast), so we need something fitting. I like the suggestions so far, keep 'em coming.
  21. This is also a good site for helping the little animals with clicks... http://www.care2.com/click2donate/ Clickety click, Barba-trick!!
  22. Yay new boy!!! We are anxiously awaiting our new arrival! Any good name ideas???
  23. I dunno, I kinda feel bad for them. I mean here they are, thinking they're all that and a sack of rocks, and then they are brought back down to earth by the shocking reality that they suck and that people want to tear apart their sack of rocks and throw them at them. It doesn't matter what language you speak, Nickelback=Suckass. That being said, I still kinda feel bad for them.
  24. I'm not entirely sure, but I think I just relived my birth...
