    Covid involved deaths in Alberta at 288 (as of October 15, 2020) is about to equal the 290 traffic fatalities of 2017. Everybody contact your MLA and get them to restrict speed limits to 10 Km/h today and stop the madness.

    So you're upset that social distancing in Alberta is keeping COVID deaths low? You'd feel better if they were 200K+?

    And we would have been putting our undefeated record on the line.

    Come to think of it, I guess we're undefeated now.

    I got my first dose of the Bill Gates microchip today. Never have I been so relieved and excited to get a vaccine.

    I was honestly surprised that I got mine already. I work on health care, yes, but I thought I'd be lower priority and in the phase 2 group, but doing home visits, I guess that was enough to bump me. I have a suspicion that the government has under-promised so as not to get people's hopes too high, but may be delivering faster than what they announced. Going you all stay safe, there's a light at the end of the tunnel!

    Anyone planning home projects out there? Lumber and other material prices are through the roof. Ridiculous! I totally changed/cancelled my reno plans for this summer.

    Re: coronavirus disease (COVID-19) affecting us

    We were just talking about this the other day. Luckily we did our basement last summer thanks to a flood. Was looking at doing some stuff to the bathroom but decided to put it off until prices come down. Not just lumber it’s flooring and fixtures that have gone up since last year.

    Pickup truck prices going crazy also. Been sniffing around for a low mileage two to three yr old 4x4 crew cab. No way I'll pay what they want. Seems also they want you to make payments rather than just paying for it. Not much wiggle room.

    Noticed the Bombers Andrew Harris is working for a Winnipeg Ford dealership.

    A lot of guys will fall into car sales because they can get by with just the name recognition and referrals are their core business. In my day a ton of the guys were working with Pfizer and Novartis as pharm reps in the off season. Even further a few guys made more in the off season than they did playing.
