He was happy to do Coronation Street though.
--- Well he is an actor and they do a lot of acting on Coronation Street. I used to watch that nice soap opera a lot ( it was carried here on the CBC ).
Trust me bad, Corrie is not acting.
Well it seems that you might not be a fan of " The Street " Kaynight. I started watching the show quite some years ago when many of the early characters were still there, a fun program.
I just noticed from looking at the 1st page that badenwurtca, despite having a nearly impossible name to type, has been creating interesting threads for at least 5 years now.
He deserves a PARTY!
It might be interesting to note that inspite of the common percetion that they are found in mountainous areas, 4 coastal (flatland) counties of North Carolina (USA) have the largest black bears in the world.
No doubt they are being hunted by human ferals who seem determined to diminish the wildlife population everywhere including Africa.Rich hunters go there to places with corrupt dictators to shoot endangered species such as Rhinoceri and Elephants.There are many dedicated game wardens but some are corrupt and take bribes from poachers to look the other way.On another continent Tigers are also becoming rapidly endangered.What a sh*t world.
You sound a bundle of laughs.
Thanks for the new posts.
--- Thanks a lot for the nice thoughts Batgirl. Btw there is no need to type out my entire name. Some people call me bad or baden or cab or cabby or even badcabby lol.
when and where is the party?!?
Well now that you mention it I'm just a couple of hours away from Edmonton which is the home of the NHL Oilers. The Oilers have a brand new Hockey rink that is to open soon. This new building includes a bar and a restaurant so that seems like a good spot ( sorry but you have to pay your own airfare lol ).
So what did you find in with your breakfast cereal this morning ? Well it seems that recently a shipment of cereal was going thru customs at the Paris airport and 51kilograms of illegal drugs were found hidden in among the boxes ( about 5 million dollars worth of drugs ). So be careful when you open your cereal box, you never know what you might find.
no wonder i felt so good this morning!
Thanks for the post AlCzervik. Yes there may have been some " Extra Spices " in the cereal lol.
One quirk that hockey fans may have noticed about the old Edmonton arena will be taken down with it. The old arena had the broadcast cameras facing the penalty box, unlike the other 29 NHL arenas where cameras face the bench. The new one will comply with the standard, to the annoyance of a few who say that the old way was more charming, and to the confusion of those who will see 14 players in what they may remember as being the penalty box.
Thanks for the post and the info Ivandh. I've never been in the Oiler Hockey Arena however I do hear most of their games as they are carried on a local Radio station here. Years ago when I still lived down in Calgary I did go into the Olympic Saddledome once, I'm not sure however how the Flames Arena compares to the old one in Edmonton.
So have you hugged your Kakapo today ? Today I found out that a Kakapo is a large flightless Parrot that lives on some of the South Pacific Islands. These birds can grow to weigh as much as 12 kilos and live as long as 100 years ( could be a pet for life lol ).
