@EM Similarly, Prince George is Northern BC, but it's really only half way up there. Not a lot of people go to Fort St. John.
@EM Ottawa is Eastern Ontario usually (not close to the border at all). North Bay is sort of the start of Northern Ontario. If you look on a map, all the cities in "Northern Ontario" are only about half way up. But there's pretty much nothing in the top half of Ontario.
@amyfrances Ooh, what a wonderful idea! My lottery idea is to open a fluff 'n' fold that does hang drying!
I hate when the site forces you to use their own hint questions. Especially since mother's maiden name is a pretty common one, and my mother never changed her name. REAL SECURE, JERKS.
@honey cowl The only time I've had problems is sometimes I get work documents in pdfs, and try to read them on my Kobo, and adjusting the size of the font is basically impossible. Library books from Overdrive work just fine though!
@wrappedupinbooks Hm, I guess Amazon hasn't made much in the way of in-roads in non-book product in Canada. I don't know anyone who shops for things other than books there.
@wrappedupinbooks I'm curious about your question. How does one live in an Amazon-free household? I have lived in an Amazon-free household my whole life, and it's pretty straightforward: you just don't buy from them. I also have limited financial resources, so I usually get books from the library, or I buy from Kobo or a local used bookstore.
@pizza Hm, perhaps I should look into it again. When I was first looking several years ago a half share wasn't an option with any that I checked with, maybe things have changed since then. Although I really do like my local grocery store, which is independently owned, so maybe I won't.
@Vicky I made a super excellent fennel dip as an appetizer for Thanksgiving a few weeks ago! http://www.marthastewart.com/346112/warm-fennel-and-parmesan-dip
I have never seen a CSA that had an option that made sense for a single person. Fortunately my local grocery store carries a lot of local produce!
