Last night it was pointed out that I messed up 'astrology'; and 'astronomy'.
I certainly did.
As I 'mature' I find I do more of that. Thanks for the correction.

I caught the tail end of a news report on CTV last nights broadcast about the Metro store on Northern Ave. Missed the meat of the story. Anybody know any details?

So much hate...so much sadness in this world and yet, I have found something that helps me bounce through life with renewed optimism and giddiness, and this is what I have found.
Whenever I feel the weight of the world upon my weary shoulders I sing the "Juicy Fruit" song...
"Get your skiis shined up grab a stick of Juicy Fruit...the taste is gonna move ya!...
Actually, come to think of it, Canada should adopt it as its new National Anthem!

Yes, it's going to be converted to a vegan grocery store. Hence why you missed the meat.

Good to see that the store will not be closing as it services many people in the area.
Would like to hear more details of "down grading" when they become available.
Lots of construction going on at the old Zellers location. Still no word on what may be going in to the location.
Mr. Poster 9/30/2013 8:12:44 AM Report
The rumour mill says GIANT TIGER is going into the old ZELLERS store. Maybe the investigative reporters at SOOTODAY can follow up on this ?
right wing 9/30/2013 8:15:29 AM Report
There was a news release that stated they were doing work to the interior of the store in anticipation of future tenants but that at present there was no specific interest.

'Scuse me folks,but I can't get to the Metro story...What are they doing with it?? Thanks...

They are not closing any in the Sault is the bottom line.

So the country that refuses to open its nuclear facility in Dimona to UN inspectors is going to speak before the UN, decrying Iran's possible warming up to the West ?
Everyone knows (but won't say) that Israel has had between 100 and 170 nuclear weapons for years now, but they refuse to sign the NPT.

Brianne, I have Google Chrome and don't find it any better than Explorer. The problem started when I downloaded the latest Adobe player along with Chrome. It installed this filter that resets itself every time you start the computer up. I just haven't been watching many videos and had forgotten about it.Only takes a click to kick it off and it only bothers certain videos..:)

Good day all. I have hade 3 good friends pass away in one week so i havn"t felt like talking too much. I would however like to apologize to you all for useing the term "gobshite" to Jimssm. When he/she said that i thought of myself as a Bible Scholar [ which i don"t].. the sarcasm came through loud and clear... you may just be typing words but the sarcasm was there and a person would have to be a Eejit not to pick up on it... I just lost my temper a wee bit and for that i"m sorry. I have dealt with the public all my life and can take it and give it back as good as it gets but at this stage in my life i just choose not to get into this sort of banter ,, people do "' mature "' when it come to this sort of thing, and i for one will not get caught up in it again as i felt like i made a " Holy Show" of myself by loosing my temper.. easy thing for the Irish to do ,lol. On a different note.. can anyone really blame Israel for not declaring their weapons to the world? Like , look where they are,, surrounded by countries that don"t even want them on the map! I heard on the news today the the President of Iran wants the States and Iran to be able to fly to each others countries freely... Are they kidding???? Well , enough for me today... thank you Spell Checker for the site... Have a great day all, and Skipper Dave> God bless

Be nice folks, we, me,, never know who we are speaking to out there and how they are going to react to some of the comments made,, most that are made in jest we acknowledge as such,, but others ????

You took it as sarcasm. I meant it as compliment.
Such is the inherent danger in typed conversations versus face to face.
Had it been sarcasm, I would have ended it with "/sarcasm off"
irishfey 9/30/2013 4:18:54 PM Report
Jimssm... have my doubts on that one but will just accept what you said. I have never seen "" sarcasm off"" before on here.. in my day we would just end the sarcasm with a good old.. " feck o.." lol , which i see some of you have adopted in terms of the other word. Nice to see some of you picking up the Irish slang lol I bet Grump has heard it many times from his Lassie ,lol Anyway Jimssm, no hard feelings and i think it"s great of you to adopt these children to give them a better life..... Won"t be on for a couple of days.. back up to the Soo tomorrow to stay with me Mom and more therapy on the knee. Grump>>> I was told that it takes almost a year for the knee to get back to normal!!..... Keep it " nice ' kids,lol

Regarding your discussion of astronomy yesterday (or astrology if talking to Fly...lol), I bought my daughter a nice Meade 10" LX90 telescope.
It never caught on with her and is sitting all by it's lonesome in my basement.
I would learn to use it but my neighbours would wonder why it was pointed at their windows and not the sky.

Good evening everyone. Had an early (earlier)start today and don't need many more like this one. Hope it took a little load off you Skipper, if so it was worth it. The Protector I detect a little sense of humour coming through. You have now stumbled on to a sure fire way to P.O. the swampers. Keep up the good work. Irish Fey , I heard at lot of that talk long before I met my little Irish gal. You have to be Irish yourself to ever keep up with one of them. lol. Have a great day all.
right wing 9/30/2013 7:20:39 PM Report
That is a nice scope.
Meade was the make of the first telescope I ever purchased.
The LX90 has some attractive bells and whistles, GPS being one of them
I now have a Meade LX200 ACF.
It would not do you much good looking at your neighbours though, that is unless you want to see them upside down and no left/right correction.
The LX90 is a refractor not a reflecting scope.
Interested in selling?
flyhawk25 9/30/2013 7:44:25 PM Report
Sorry but I can't resist.
'Seeing them upside and no right/left correction' is the best thing I've read in a while.
Now I'm starting to understand.
Perhaps it is 'astrology' after all.

I do not wish to dwell on American politics, but I really think that the Republicans must have a death wish. They appear to have no political savvy (the tea-partiers, anyway). They have their counterparts on this side of the border. Wiesen was whimpering over an $8 Walmart barbecue chicken, while he can get it cheaper across the river. Chicken is cheaper and so is cheese wisen, but if you're a canny shopper like I am, you'll realize thare's not too much of a bargain over there. What's more, if you study history (and I mean this seriously) you'll understand that our societies have evolved best when we take care of each other. It's not a leftie platitude but demonstrable. Look at the happiest countries in the world. They're highly taxed, have great social programs, are generally wealthy and generally tend to view the wisen types as throwbacks to a bygone age. They support gay alliances and are not known for their baptismal fetishes.

For a "wise" investor giving free advice when nobody asked, Wisen seems genuinely concerned about a 4 dollar difference in rotisserie chicken from a discount store .
I am beginning to wonder whether he googled his investing knowledge and lives in a trailer, smelling of stale pancake mix and uric acid..after all, he does shop at Walmart.

Jimssm: this is not really a news but more a social question. I am totally impressed with your life. I'm interested: are your "sons" from last year still living with you and are your new boys going to school in town, yet? Given their total lack of acquaintance with the lifestyle here, it must be a hard transition. I think it would be neat if you could give sootoday a monthly column on the adjustments and maybe get the boys to chip in too, with their perceptions.
