I have Arthur. He's seven months old. I love him to death. And, on any given day I might actually kill him. I have to spend about 15 minutes everyday muttering "he's just a puppy, he's just a puppy..." under my breath. » 8/27/14 1:42pm Wednesday 1:42pm

As much as I don't like the city I'll nominate Calgary Alberta. It has regularly upgraded and expanded its airport. Their major arterial routes (Stony Trail, Shaganappi Trail... really all the roads with "Trail" in the name) have been upgraded or are in the process of being upgraded. The City is encouraging major… » 8/26/14 11:39am 8/26/14 11:39am

WestJet and Air Canada provide you with a large plastic bag to put over your car seat. You just open the bag, dump in the seat and knot the top. It gets a bag tag and then off it goes to the plane.

I want to love the C7. From a performance:value standpoint I think it's amazing. I admit to having a really hard time with that back end. To me it's a hot mess of angles, flat planes, and circles.

There is a guy in town here with a garage full of them. He drives a red and white one on a regular basis. He showed up at our garage sale a couple of years ago and we got to talking. I think he said he has seven Metropolitans. » 8/22/14 3:15pm 8/22/14 3:15pm

I'll disagree a little. The frame of the truck is still steel. What we're talking about is aluminium body panels. As for rigidity, aluminium is pretty great. The only practical experience I have with it is in bikes, however with thin wall/wide diameter tubs aluminium is more rigid than steel and significantly lighter.… » 8/22/14 11:34am 8/22/14 11:34am

My first ever car that I got to drive was a 245 DL. It was the colour of cheap red wine with a matching interior. Four-speed stick with electric overdrive - via a little switch on the top of the gear shift. That car was perfect for an exuberant 16 year old. The best part was that two of my friends also drove them.… » 8/21/14 2:10pm 8/21/14 2:10pm
