So when I top off my phone with a card from a kiosk, does it also go towards data?
Aaah the flexed arm hang!!It is great reading all these blogs here.Brings back good memories.I remember being scared to death waiting for my turn to get to the flexed arm hang.I went from bronze to silver to gold and finally the award of excellence.The only thing was the badge changed from the one with the boarder at the top to the red boarder with gold.Damn it , i wanted the old style!!!!lol.Anyway it brings back good memories.I have never felt so alive as a child with fear/anticipation as when i did those tests.
Urban sprawl comes to IsLAND MEDICAL CARE. Perhaps if the architects had planned for future vertical expansion the place would not resemble the Blob that threatened to consume Hillsborough village.
I would like to use your poem. It is for a ladies guild that supports the education of children while they are in the hospital.
It looks like the original outline is just not very detailed. The separate building on the new map was always present. The notable additions were a new ER, the ambulatory care centre and the cancer treatment centre. A new staff parking lot was opened to make up for the loss of the one that used to be where the ACC went in.
There is a model of the original layout of the hospital at the base of the main stairs. It's great to look at to see the original naive aspirations of the architects, and how the original building turned out to be through the years.
No surprises. There are some very nice compositions in there.
The ornate staircase is my fav!
and it still continues today. both Here systems are rubbish. now you can only search for an address, the exact address is required or the software saves the partial address to favourites and its impossible to delete or rename. on lumia 625 occasionally you get the chance to rename a favourite but try finding it again and its gone. lumia is full of errors. thought to plug in my headphones for radio and within 2 minutes the phone crashed, thats nothing new as in 7 days of ownership of my windows phone has crashed every day. havent bothered switching it on today as im getting bored with it already. mind you Garmin GPS is no better. we seemed to have evolved into offering products that never work just like British Leyland car company in UK. back street mechanics had to re-engineer every car to make it safe while the manufacturer couldnt care less
Lovely poem arrived in the mail today. Thank you for keeping it (really) real.
thanks very much, that's really useful to know.
So happy to be given a privilege to post a comment here. You have a wonderful site. Thank you for the effort to publish this.
Yes there are hills, but it wasn't a problem. There are plenty of trams, funiculars and elevators to help you out, and we found the city very pedestrian-friendly, kids or no.
thanks for this fantastic list, we re planning to visit this summer with our 3 kids. we ve been told that walking around in lisbon is a bit challenging because of the steep climbs - is it something to worry about? [its the 8 year old and the 3 year old we re worried about]
Reading this string was hilarious! I too hated listening to Andy Barry, he interrupted a long love affair with CBC radio.. Searching Joe Cote, infondly remember his excellence.
Love this story, especially since 100 Prince is the same house where my 3 brothers and I grew up! Wonderful memories! Hope you folks are enjoying living there as much as we did.
Great story - and neat to see historic images taking on new lives.
Love the simplicity and balance of space on paper.
OK I post so I can play the game and prove I'm considered human by some.
YAY! This was soooo great! At first, my google search only brought up a bunch of German answers (which I'm sure were wonderful, but I'm still working on my German... and google translate is GREAT but only goes so far). So I was SO thankful to find your nice, concise way of adding minutes. It didn't take my American CC so I took the paypal route and that worked just fine. I also had it sent directly to the phone (which was an option now for .50 cents more).
Anyway, THANK YOU for taking the time to share this!
Having examined the mittens plate myself, I'm shocked at how well it printed. I had no idea.
(I bet Erin had an idea)
Glad to see/read that Oliver has started joining you for the levees. I have many fond memories of attending levees with Dad as a teenager, although for the life of me I cannot pinpoint when this tradition began. We used to do just UPEI (when it was at the Rodd) and the City of Charlottetown levees. As I grew older, despite being more likely to have a very late night beforehand, we added the Lieutenant Governor's and the Premier. Last year, a new twist on the tradition began with Dad joining the receiving line at the UPEI levee as part of his Chairman of the Board responsibilities. As I understand it, the experience is very different, but not altogether unpleasant from the other side.
Alas, this year, for only the second time ever, I left the Island before the New Year and wasn't able to partake in our lovely leveeing tradition.
All the best in 2014 Peter. Perhaps I'll see you at the levees next year!
Oliver's choice of levee picture is excellent. Hope you place your calendar prominently. Only can disagree with one award as I thought Her Honour's period dress was tops. I may be biased. Thank you for your list. Very helpful.
Great seeing you and Oliver at the Queen Street Commons' levee today. I think the grilled cheese sandwiches set us apart!
New Year's Day Levees are a great way to bring in the new year. So, if your able to get out and celebrate with lots of other people, come join the rest of us to bring in the sesquicentennial of the Charlottetown Conference. Happy 2014!
The aufladen.de option to deposit directly to my Vodafone prepaid number and to pay via PayPal worked flawlessly and instantly topped me up. Thanks!
