  1. Happy birthday, hope you have as much fun as I just did on my b'day. Brian
  2. Thanks guys & gals for your well wishes, even the ones I meet at Carverfest 😁 as my birthday fell on a Monday a regular work day it was nothing special, did not even have time to meet up with my work partners. Now the Saturday night prior (20th) was a different story my wife took 4 or us out to dinner at Atelier Restaurant http://www.atelierrestaurant.ca/ where food is art, and art is food. A none descript grey brick building with iron bars on the windows. The interior décor is very mediumistic a 2 story building with the ground floor all Black and the 2rd floor half Black and half White and not one picture or distraction on the wall. The food is the art. They only serve one menu, and the place is always fully booked 2 months ahead. The menu is a 12 course tasting menu, and every dish is so different in taste and presentation. (please look at the link) we all enjoyed the evening, we where there for just over 4hrs eating and drinking some very fine wines. It was very, very expensive The food was worth the money the wines over priced. The cost for 4 off us with 13% tax and 20% tip was just under $1500.00 Would I do it again. Yes for the food, but only have a glass or 2 of house wine.
  3. Sk1Bum So sad for you loss, but you looked after Rosa's pain. I went thought the same think with my beloved Tank, (bone cancer) we put him out of pain on 28 Oct 2018 Like you will, I think of Tank daily, even though we have a new pup to keep me busy, I will not forget Tank AND YOU WILL NOT FORGET ROSA, she looked beautiful Brian
  4. That would have been a great deal, $380.00 cnd = $285.00 usd I live in Ottawa Canada, only 2hrs away from Montreal. In the last 2 years I have purchased 3 different items for members, and then shipped the item to them. Next time you see an add like that, think of me. Brian
  5. My first rig was B&O 6000 Turntable, 6000 Receiver and S-75 Speakers. I saw the setup in a shop window and I knew I had to purchase the set. I walked in and financed for 24 months. The Turntable was great, the Receiver and Speakers looked good, sounded good but not great. Stock Pictures. Brian
  6. Someone is going to be very lucky, having a set of ribbons fixed. As I do not own any i'm not in. Good luck to all who enter. Brian

  14. We lost our Chocolate Lab Tank on 27 Aug 2018, bone cancer. he was a rescue we had 5 years with him. About 6 weeks later while walking in the dog park with my 15 year old Yorkshire Terrier, a lady who I had seen many times in the dog park when i was there with Tank, came over to me and asked me why she had not seen him around. Once I had told her, she asked me if I would be interested in an other dog. Due to the real cold Canadian winter minus 30C I had decided to wait till spring before i started looking. She showed me a picture of Stella a 10 month plus American Bull dog, that was a Thursday eve. I picked up Stella on Saturday 27 Oct 2018. We changed her name to Ella. She is a handful. The following weekend we had some guest over for supper, Ella decided to help with the cleaning up 😀 Brian
