  1. COVID-19: Most unvaccinated Canadians uncomfortable with AstraZeneca shot, poll shows (msn.com) The majority of unvaccinated Canadians say they are uncomfortable with the idea of receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, according to a online survey from Angus Reid. Canadian provinces, acting on a recommendation from Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), suspended the use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine in people under age 55 last month after new data from Europe suggested the risk of blood clots is now potentially as high as one in 100,000 compared
  2. It is really confusing the way they are doing the rollout of the vaccination program. I don't know if it is intentional or not. Being registered is not as the same as getting the vaccine. According to the website people who are 40+ can register but does does not mean they will get their vaccine anytime soon. They are a long ways from getting the vaccine because the current group eligible to make an appointment is 66+. The gap between those able to register and those able to get vaccinated is 25 years. It would be a long wait before the 40+ group get their vaccine. So, y
  3. Actually, registration, NOT appointment for vaccination is opened for those 60+. Once you register, then you will get an invitation to book an appointment when you age comes up. Right now you can only get a vaccination appointment if you are born in 1953, or 67+ old. For those younger it may take a few more weeks before you get vaccinated.

  4. What ever you think of the Monarchy and the Royals you have to applaud Prince Philip for his service to his country, before and after his marriage to Queen Elizabeth. During WWII Prince Philip served in the British Navy in active duty as a naval officer. After WWII and his marriage to QE his charity work and his interest in conservation defined his role in the Monarchy. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is the most enduring achievement of of his life. This award is the basis of inspiration for many young people. But the person I feel most sorry for is Queen Elizabeth.
  5. Interesting story about Kits house selling for over $500,000 over asking price. Sold (Bought): 1940s Kitsilano house receives 18 offers | Vancouver Sun You know, the $2.5 Million will get you a mansion in some parts of the US. It is ridiculous $2.5 Million for a 33 ft lot when you can get an acre for that price elsewhere.

  7. I fall in this age range but I have no intention of getting the AstraZeneca vaccine.
  8. Immunization committee to recommend provinces stop giving AstraZeneca vaccine to those under 55: sources (msn.com) Wit so many mixed messages who wants to take Astra Zenneca. First they say people over 65 should not take it. Then they say its OK for people over 65. Then they say people under 65 should get the Astra vaccine. Now they say under 55 they should not get it. So its ok for those between 55 and 65? They say some people may get blood clots. Then they say safe from blood clots yet Health Canada put warning labels on it.
  9. You are confusing ethnicity with citizenship. You can be ethnically Chinese and not a Chinese citizen. Your wife can call herself whatever she wants but she is ethnically and culturally a Chinese person. Cantonese is a language like Mandarin and not a ethnic group. So you can't call yourself a Cantonese Canadian anymore can someone call themselves Mandarin Canadian.
  10. Interesting situation in the Suez Canal as that Container Ship is still there stucked. https://www.aljazeera.com/economy/2021/3/26/egypt-races-to-dislodge-massive-ship-blocking-suez-canal-live

    Big trade today in the NFL as SF49s move up to No.3 draft position with trade with Miami who held the 3rd pick. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31141794/san-francisco-49ers-move-nfl-draft-acquire-no-3-pick-miami-dolphins-sources-say
  12. Jessica Waller was a staple on TV for 60 years. I remember her on old time classic TV shows like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Hawaii 5-0, Ironside, Mission Impossible, Streets of San Francisco, Columbo, etc. How many actors/actresses have such a prolific career on TV for so long? Very few if any.
  13. George Segal, Durable Veteran of Drama and TV Comedy, Is Dead at 87 - The New York Times (nytimes.com) George Segal, whose long career began in serious drama but who became one of America’s most reliable and familiar comic actors, first in the movies and later on television, died on Tuesday in Santa Rosa, Calif. He was 87. The cause was complications following bypass surgery, according to his wife, Sonia Segal, who announced his death. Sandy-haired, conventionally if imperfectly handsome, with a grin that could be charming or smug and a brow that could knit with si

    NE did a good job with free agency, both on offense and defence. The only thing missing is a QB. Sorry, Cam Newton would not cut it. However, with free agency QBs, the pickings are slim as Fritzpatrick signed with Washington, Brissett signed with Miami. Trubisky went to Buffalo, Dalton to Chicago. The guys left are has beens: Alex Smith, RG III, Joe Flacco, Brain Hoyer, Geno Smith, Blake Bortles, etc. Even if they draft a QB, he will unlikely be ready right away. A trade maybe? JiimmyG? Mariotta?
  15. That is little consolation considering Telus is one of the most expensive cell phone providers out there. There is now one less competitor out here. Shaw/Freedom Mobile kept Telus in check. Bad news for the consumer.
