  1. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    You do realize your avatar is of players last here 20 years ago, so it's rather strange that you have an issue with this. If you can, why can't we? Burr is a fan favourite here, a unique story in the NHL and there are 32,000 other threads if this one's not for you. This is at least recent past....
  2. [Report] Alexandre Burrows announces retirement

    Aw damn, this is great. Just as I started watching it, my daughter called to say she'd just rung his order through at her store...sent me a pic. Love that his first goal was against the Leafs. Also loved the emotion from Shorty (and Larschied). One thing that always stood out was his amazing hand eye. Just brilliant. And, if ever there was a guy I'd want to bet on for a short handed goal..... That Auger stuff still makes me cringe. He's likely a politician now somewhere. God, I miss Burr. But he's never really gone.
  3. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    My daughter called from work awhile go...."guess who I just rang through Mom...your favourite??". I feel better knowing that he's here at "home" today. It's a good day...
  4. What are you listening to?

    I love this thread. New music and old music that's new to me happy place. (I remember Natalie Imbruglia/Torn). And I heard Where Did You Sleep Last Night for the first time by Nirvana during their Unplugged performance. Bipolar Deb's playlist includes:

    Fell in love with her at the free show on Canada Day.
  6. Ray Emery has passed away.

    Harrison Lake has been known for this. Was my first thought too.

  8. Ray Emery has passed away.

    I still remember that..he was a favourite of mine. So fiesty.
  9. Ray Emery has passed away.

    Oh God, this is awful. I am so sorry to hear this tragic thoughts are with his family. Drowning is such a horrible thing to think about.
  10. ICBC Situation.

    Better idea. There's a good phrase....something to do with telling the truth is easier, as you don't have to remember all the lies you told.
  11. ICBC Situation.

    So commit fraud? We don't condone that here. And insurance is null and void if it's abused or obtained under false pretenses, so not a great plan anyhow. It's why you have to sign and initial everywhere. Good way to add to this hard luck story...if an accident is caused and the insurance contract is found to be breached.
  12. ICBC Situation.

    To be truthful, the questions you haven't answered are probably your answers. I'm going over it again, and there are things that need addressing. Here's a start: You've done things in reverse here...the time to have thought about not being able to afford losing your license was prior to receiving those points, in making sure you didn't. Even "during". But accumulating points was your deal and it seems even that didn't teach you a lesson, as you continued to break the rules. I don't know that this is an "ICBC situation". I'd say it's a driving (and accountability?) situation.
  13. ICBC Situation.

    I think you're blending in something in an oversight that was likely a MUCH bigger deal than you blow it off as. A situation occurred during the 4 months where I had to quickly jump into the car (Stupid decision on my part) and drive a few blocks away from my house. I got pulled over Your attempt to downplay this is concerning and a huge red flag. The fact that you're doing that (and have a bad track record with driving, etc.) doesn't demonstrate that you're being responsible or accountable in this. Fighting it with lawyers is one thing, but accepting your role and changing the behaviour is part of it. This was likely significant despite you skipping over it as a simple mistake. You made assumptions after this that you probably shouldn't have. Perhaps it wasn't business as usual from this point onward? There's a reason you're on their radar.....irresponsible driving costs people lives. Take it ALL more seriously. As questioned by others, what WERE all those points for? That too, is an important tidbit in this. and they impounded the car and gave me a court date, which I had to show up for in court. The original 4 month suspension had ended and I reinstated my license and began to drive again How did YOU reinstate your license? Perhaps counting time spent driving while prohibited wipes out the period served? I have no idea, but that would be a reasonable assumption when you're caught driving during a suspension? It is your responsibility to find out for sure. Not to take action based on what you believe or guess to be true. Me too..the stories I could tell involving what they did to my Dad. Now I play hardball with them, because there are very crooked adjustors. I was rear ended recently and was hung up on by one who was overstepping her boundaries and violating my privacy. This. I have been driving forever and still observe all the rules. We've seen how things go wrong when that isn't the case...don't want it to be me that's responsible for something horrible.
