Electrician recommendation?

We need an electrician to fix one pendant lamp over our kitchen 'bar' area... We turned them on recently and heard this one sizzle/spark and it no longer works. So it won't be a BIG job, but still want someone people have used and trust i their homes... Any recommendations?

Re: Tell me about your SUV

There are so many SUV options out there, would help if you have a price range to help us suggest vehicles. Whether you are looking for new or used? Some just off-lease 'luxury' brands can be comparable in price to new 'run of the mill' brands. The above being said, for price and reliability and look...

Re: How much you pay to replace car windshield ? Recommendat

Go through your insurance unless it can be spot-treated at Speedy or Apple or Triline.

I was aghast at the windshield replacement cost of my previous vehicle ($1,200!) through my dealer's normal place. Thank goodness for insurance and $100 deductibles on windshields!

Re: Checkout 51?

I 'use' it but have yet to meet the minimum $20 in rebates (they only send out in $20 increments). Some people let it sway what they'd normally purchase (I don't) and therefore have received a few cheques already!

Re: Tell me about your SUV

Obviously the big SUVs go through a lot of gas (Durango, Pilot) but many of the newer SUVs (the smaller ones, think CRV, RAV, Venza, etc.) offer efficient v-6 engines, some turbo charged. My little SUV gets 600km per tank with mostly city driving (other than the odd Costco run).

Re: Checkout 51?

It's more a 'why not' when you are shopping anyways, just save your receipt and see if anything on it matches that week. Also, they have had a 'any shop over $60' for $1 rebate so even if all you did was *that*, you could get $20 back after... err.. 20 shops over $60. Lol

Re: BEST family dogs ?

Awww we had a Bouvier growing up (well, a mixed breed but the sellers advertised them as 7/8 Bouvier, 1/8 German Shepherd LOL ) and he was pretty great. Although he wasn't a water dog.

Re: broken tooth

My mom chipped her tooth in grade one (someone knocked her while she was getting water from the fountain... *shudder*) and even back then (over 50 years ago) put a 'cap' on it and she has the same one to this day, it just looks like another tooth, you'd never know. If the tooth has been completely c...

California Lilac, grows like crazy, happens to bloom and you can cut it to a hedge or let it grow naturally.

Re: Home Alone at 8 1/2 for 2 hours slaps Mom with Ministry

8 is too young in my mind, whether male or female, 'mature' or 'responsible' enough irregardless. But that's *me* and my kids. The swimming pool example is not valid since there are qualified lifeguards on duty, mind you there is no one watching the over-7-year olds in the change rooms or non-swimmi...
