I like the 'Canada will gladly take Hawaii in' suggestions.
Would be a good idea. You lot need somewhere nice for winter.

When we lived in Vancouver we stopped in Hawaii for a week once on our way to visit the in-laws in Australia.  We had a couple of rainy days, and on one, we went to an indoor play centre to keep our 3 year old happy. 

There we found two other families from Vancouver, and ruefully noted that we were all in Hawaii to escape the Vancouver rain.  And might have well have gone to the very similar indoor play centre in Richmond.

Once Mrs Black and I were coincidentally  in the same IKEA as you and your son at the same time, despite that IKEA not being near where either of us live.

Feels like I'm there nearly every week. But the Coquitlam not the Richmond one, these days.

I love ikea. I even love going with my wife. It's like a theme park if you get severely stoned first. I don't even care what we buy that way. The only thing I have ever intentionally bought at ikea is meatballs.

An IKEA store is finally being built in Halifax. It's due to open in the autumn. Every time someone mentions this fact, their eyes light up with excitement and yearning.

Which should give you some idea of how very much the big chain furniture outlets in that city suck.

Ikea is pretty unique among home furnishing suppliers.

Drifting on, my best IKEA memory is from one afternoon when I had bought a chair in IKEA London, and was driving back to Bracknell where I was working at the time. Took a wrong turn on exiting, and got lost increasingly deep in London. No map, no useful signs, and this was way before any satnavs. Fortunately, the sky was reasonably clear, so I realized that I could navigate westwards towards the sun until I hit the M25. I knew that junction, so from there the rest of the drive was unproblematic.

One day, in the Richmond IKEA, I lost sight of my son, then about two.  I checked the next aisle, and the previous aisle - no sign of him.  I asked a couple of people if they'd seen him, but they hadn't.  I started to panic.  I went to an IKEA staff member, who took me immediately to the nearest help station.  The staff member there immediately put out a call on the intercom to close the front doors.  Then they took me to the play area.  Then they took a description. Within a minute, IKEA staff started turning up to get the description.  Within two minutes, one of them brought my son to the play area.  I hugged him then turned to thank them, but they'd just melted away.  It was the most slickest, most thoughtful, effective and kindest security operation I've ever seen, before or since.  P was found before he even realised he was lost.

Trump lies in Kentucky:

Quote
We've also cleared the way for the Keystone and the Dakota Access pipelines. (Applause.) And as I was signing it, I said, where are they getting the steel? Where? And I said, you know what, if people want to build pipelines in the United States, they should use American steel, and they should build it and create it right here. That pipe is going to be manufactured right here. That was like, last minute -- I'm saying, where are they buying this stuff?

From White House: Keystone XL exempt from 'Buy American' push:

Quote
The Keystone XL pipeline will not have to comply with President Trump's executive order prioritizing the use of American steel in pipeline projects, the White House said on Friday

They exempted Keystone XL since the pipeline company(s) had already purchased miles of pipe from around the world and stockpiled it.

Yes.  And they will purchase more from whomever.

Trump lied about it.

Shit weather almost all the time.
If we consider the weather only, I'd far rather live in Vancouver than (nearly*) anywhere else in Canada.

This does not contradict your statement, though.  :D


[* Victoria, and some other nearby places, are better:  Very warm by Canadian standards (like Vancouver), but much less wet. ]

I love ikea. I even love going with my wife. It's like a theme park if you get severely stoned first. I don't even care what we buy that way. The only thing I have ever intentionally bought at ikea is meatballs.

I could see enjoying that if getting stoned didn't make me so fucking paranoid.

eta:  I'm also curious about the taste of horse meat.

Eta: I didn't know that elkart had an edit time window so this is an ETA:

I should have said that while I have never intentionally bought something other than meatballs, my wife usually knows why we are there and gets whatever it was we went to get. I often discover that I am carrying something heavy when we leave.

Paranoid is no fun. I think if I smoked regular pot I'd probably not like it. Is it legal in Texas? Probably not I suppose. Anyway, if you can get the oil from a sativa strain with at least 10% cbd you won't get paranoid.

Eta: tastes like meatballs.

It's a shame Bart isn't around anymore. He would love Dave Hawkins' logic here. Like if Bart were to call Dave Hawkins a child molester, Dave Hawkins would be ok with it because Bart had called a few non-child molesters child molesters in the past.

Why would this Bart guy call Dave Hawkings that?
