    Might be worth poking a small hole in the soffit to have a peek. Ours was just empty space. I thought there would at least be something for the range hood vent, but no. It vented to nowhere :rolleyes: No idea why anyone would purposely use up wall space like that but I feel like the 70s were not...

    News & Experiences continued

    I’m gutted for some family that lives in a fairly remote valley in a string of aboriginal villages in northern B.C. . They have three confirmed cases which doesn’t sound like much but the villages are tiny. They had a funeral for one of their elders and say they followed all the recommendations...

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election

    Real estate in Southwestern BC ain’t cheap. I didn’t say Vancouver because I think Victoria is expensive too. Real estate where I live, though going up in price, is still quite reasonable. But if you live where I do you have to deal with Vancouverites speaking for the entire province :shuffle...

    I think you just pegged my issue with corian. It’s never appealed to me but now that you’ve said that I think it kind of looks plastic-y to me too. We put in quartz countertops last year and I’m very happy with them. So easy to clean, though to be fair we had tile countertops before which are...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    This is the playbook for literally every man that has sexually harassed me and been called on it :rolleyes: :shuffle:

    Masks, Shields and other protection

    My husband is 6’2” and a pretty strong dude. He can come across as physically intimidating just because of his size. He’s convinced that when he isn’t with the kids and is wearing a plain black mask that people are less friendly and generally more cautious around him than he’s used to. I’m...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    I have a couple of fb friends that have drunk the QAnon sex trafficker kool aid. In one case, I know it's coming from a good place of just being ultra concerned with sexual abuse of children. Her stepdad abused her and her siblings for years and passed them onto friends of his for the purposes...

    My area has our first confirmed case in nine weeks. It was a good streak while it lasted.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    If you find that person let me know. My kids wouldn’t drink frozen breast milk either. I had high lipase and couldn’t ever get scalding it right for my picky kids. So I have a bunch of frozen breast milk I can’t bear to part with even though I weaned baby mic a month ago :shuffle:

    When and how should we open schools?

    Yep. Starts at three. Just two hours twice a week for little mic. At four they go three times a week. The length of time, and how many days a week varies between preschools.

    When and how should we open schools?

    I wouldn’t be sending my three year old to preschool if it was virtual. I actually haven’t heard yet what precautions the preschool little mic is registered with is taking. I’m trying to be patient as I assume they’re working out kinks and don’t need more worried parents to deal with. I would...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    "Partial birth" is a political term, not a medical term. It's very, very, rare. No one seeks out a dilation and excavation. They happen when they are medically necessary, usually to save a life. You want less abortions? Support women and families. Give women reasonable maternity leave. 6...

    Things I Actually Like About These Times

    I’ve ended up with an extended mat leave. I would never have chosen to still be home but I am enjoying it more than I thought. We go on lots of long, meandering walks letting the kids dictate our path and pace. I’m also getting lots of quality time with my senior dog. It’s nice to have time...
