This has been in the works for a while and we've run up against some obstacles along the way, so I'm really glad to see it happening.
Best bathroom tour I've watched all day!
Just phone 188876433771 (rogers1) and continue to hit 0 until it transfers you. 5 or 6 time. It asks you to make another selection like 2 or 3 time then bang.
I have heard about someone in our accounting department bought a MAC Black Friday. She was a PC user until then. She finds no problem using Parallels desktop 8 for MAC and QuickBooks and had no issues.
Lovely. I am definitely visiting when I go :)
I came across your posts and have been reading them with much enjoyment and just soaking in the underlying emotion of the whole experience. Watching your videos, I can almost put myself in the picture so to say, and imagine myself there, standing on the street in Serafyntsi.
Hopefully, that is what I will be doing this July, 2013. I was hoping you might be able to help me somewhat. My Baba's mother came from that village in about 1900. Their family name was Dika. I know Serafyntsi is not that large. Do you think you might be able to ask your relatives if there are any Dika families in the village now. My Baba's mother's name was Ustina.
Ugh, TransUnion. I don't understand how a company, who's sole purpose is to report on the worthiness of human beings, can be allowed to have wrongful information on people so commonly.
Obviously they can't be perfect (even thoguh Equifax gets it perfect every time), but when you call them and dispute just the personal information they have about you on file, even offering to them proof of your actual current personal information, then having them somehow manage to get it wrong again should be an indicator to other companies that TransUnion's own credibility is null.
They are absolutely useless, and should be shut down. Allow other companies to give the credit profiling a try.
Hah! You could even buy some made in Portland:
But aren't these just "flashcards"? I've seen cards on a ring in ostensibly non-Japanese contexts. e.g. http://edudemic.com/2012/04/the-60-second-guide-to-how-flashcards-actually-work/
I suppose all the ones I see on rings might be products of Japan, since of course we trade.
Oh Dear. We were friends before you moved. I am so old. Anyway, I am not to any degree an Islander, but I can say your merit badge looks very spiffy from over here. Congrats!
My browser is not showing me a sound file.
Conveyor built sushi seems is easy to come by on the west coast, speaking at least for the States. I bet you can buy it in Vancouver. That said, in Portland it's something that at least a couple of the cheapest and least appetizing sushi places that have it (including a place that I suspect sold me escolar as sushi) so for me it's a red flag. There are nifty variants, like conveyors of water and sushi on model boats. Speaking of 7-11, another surprising ATM fact down here is that they charge no fees for cards issued by a credit union as opposed to a bank.
The candy bar you remember is a Danish and it was made by Neilson. My taste buds remember the creamy cinnamon taste well .. along with so many other sweet treats everyone else has mentioned.
so cool :) and +1 for the "medium quality" reference!
Believe it or not, here's another common fact between us, I came across these when I had my first japanese lessons, it was love at first usage as they say and it is indeed a critical part of the japanese learning methods I guess in both directions (Japanese <> Foreign language) as it's practical. I think there's a lot of apps (like the Evernote peek) that were most certainly inspired in their addictiveness ;) I see them as a miniaturised version of the common memory cards that are a bit more common here and there.
Congratulations on this date as well, that's quite an achievement, I don't think I've lived 20yrs (in a row) in the same place hehehe
Oh Peter, I only came across this IMPORTANT date today! With a very lame and very late excuse, a big hug from Düsseldorf, hope you had a FANTASTIC day and as we say back home: PARABÉNS!
The definition of an Islander is simple... anyone who lives on an Island. Just because someone was born here, doesn't mean they are a "real" Islander. I've seen so-called Islanders break their beer bottles on beaches, such as Tracadie. Those people may have been born here, but they are certainly not real Islanders.
By the way, thank you for all the words you have written over the past two decades. You've touched on many issues that are important to Islanders.
Anyone is an Islander if they really want to be. (The people who say that isn't enough are, I hope, a dying breed.)
That is so good did you write it?????
I've known all along you were not born here, but following you blog and Twitter feed, it's obvious that you love this place. I've never really considered you to be anything other than a true Islander. Congrats on your 20 years here, and I'm looking forward to your 60th anniversary blog entry!
I remember spending an hour or two (or more) in the back room of the Crafts Council shop sharing with you my stacks of catalogues and sources back in early (March?) '93.
Thanks for all you've shared with me in the 20 years since, though I recall only one other occasion where that happened while we were both in the same room.
Looking forward to that April 2033 post. Belated Birthday Greetings!
I was in a quior and we sung a lot of bobby gimby's songs wish i had a copy for memories.
Happy Birthday Peter! I hope you had a great day and that the coming year will be joyful!
