Whilst doing other things - (not closely watching Danika; both of us were in the same room btw), Danika decided to wash her hair with the liquid hand soap! 4he is lucky no soap got in her eyes! I then let her have a bath n' finish what she started by the sink. Lol. Who needs a tv when you have children?
"a curfew for fire pits. Residents will not be allowed to use fire pits between the hours of 1 am and noon"
So, on a weekend, when entertaining, or just lounging around, we HAVE TO WAIT TILL 12 FU+;)!G NOON to enjoy a back yard fire? Are they (city officials) on crack? I can see banning it from midnight to 8:00 am on weekends, and 10:00am on week days, but to ban it all the way to noon? That is among the most retarded law I have heard of! It rates up there with the federal firearm laws!
"Fire pits must be placed at least three meters from any combustible materials such as fences and houses."
That distance is too much! I can see 2 meters, but a full 3 meters? I can see if the fire was close to very combustible things like a pile of leaves, but most houses won't catch fire directly due to a back yard fire pit! Most houses over 40 years old or newer, have a siding that cannot catch fire like metal, stucco, stone or brick! Wood won't catch due to a few tiny sparks that WILL go out the moment they contact ANY surface that is colder than the sparks.
Now, I am talking about a reasonable sized fire, not one with a 1 meter + flame! A 35 cm flame is good enough for most out door entertaining!
I am just waiting for the courts to be back logged even more because of the city counselors stupidity! Until now, they were doing an ok job, but now, there brains have shut down completely!
After the Robert Munsch show, we waited in line (for about an hour) for the Great Bard himself to autograph the three books we bought @ the show: "Smelly Socks", "The Sand Castle Contest" and "Get Out Of Bed". Robert Munsch also allowed us to take pictures of himself and the girls. It was long after the girls bed time when we got home (after 9:00pm). The girls didn't get to bed till 10:00pm. True to form, that was perfect for Aislyn, but a way to late for Danika. However, Danika got out of bed @ 5:00am this morning, and Aislyn slept till 8:00am (typical wake up time lol). Me thinks an early bed time this evening eh?
Some people will form an opinion, then have an experience that changes it... That, my friends is apart of life! Open your opinions to change and be wise, or closely guard your opinion, never wavering, and become/stay a one dimensional dunce!
