  • What is the best thing to do with my home when I pass?

    I have a 4 plex in Canada and I am wondering what to do with it.

    I expect to pass this fall.

    I owe slightly less than it would sell for. Maybe 30K.

    It will sustain itself after I am gone and even if my unit remained empty.

    (My son may use it as a "Hotel" when in town. Regardless.)

    Would my estate not be forced to sell my place to pay off personal debt not associated with the building/mortgage? Credit cards, etc.

    What is the best way to leave this place?

    Or do I just sell it before I go?

  • Should I say goodbye to people or just go?

    I plan on "leaving" on a specific date in the not too distant future. I am struggling with saying Good-bye to people or if just to let them find out I am "gone" after I have "left". Part of me really wants to say Goodbye, but I do not know how they will react. What are your thoughts?

  • I am looking for a ground cover to plant over an area about 40 ft X 15 ft.?

    A neighbour has what I would call a "creeping cedar". Only grows an inch or two high and spreads out. Any idea how many of these I would need to cover an area that size? How big an area will each cover as it grows?

  • what is the "best" hairball cat food available in Canada?

    My cat has a hairball problem that I would like to help him with.

    I have always had him on one kind of hairball food or another, but the other day I came home to a heck of a mess that had a 8 inch long hair rope at the end of the rainbow.

    I am sure it was less fun for him than it was even for me to have to clean up and shampoo 2 rooms.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    BTW...tried hairball creams to put on paws or food, but he ain't havin' any of that. lol

  • anyone know about any effects on cats from wearing bells on their collars?

    I have 2 cats. Jax the long haired male, brings home 1-2 birds a day as a "gift" for me. I do appreciate the effort and everything, but I would rather not be responsible for the elimination of an entire species, even if in a small geographical area. I have recently started to put a collar with bell on him before releasing him to patrol his domain. I am worried about any effect having that damn ringing in his ears whenever he moves. He either doesn't seem to mind, or has given in to the concept that it has become his American Express card....He doesn't leave home without it.

    I know it would drive ME nuts.

  • who makes a gps map system that can use rural land locations?

    land locations of farms, etc in Canada are laid out using: direction,quarter,township, range and meridian numbers to show exact location. NW-6-14-9-W3 for example.

    Because my work requires me to do both city and rural calls, it would be nice to have a unit with this capability. Right now I have to purchase RM (Rural Municipality) maps from each area I enter.

  • What do you think will happen?

    I recently got ticketed by the police ($230) for not stopping at a flashing red light at 2:15 am on my way home from work. I DID actually stop. I drive a standard transmission and the vehicle actually rolled back slightly before I advanced through the intersection.(The way it will in a stick, if you hit the brakes sharply to stop at a low speed). The cop TOLD me that he was distracted and did not SEE me "drive" through the flashing red and was going to check his video camera. He came back, said I didn't stop and gave me a ticket. I AM fighting it. I assume that he based his decision on the "amount" of brake lights his camera viewed. It would have recorded minimal brake lights. But I still stopped. I further assume that I can request a copy of said dashboard camera for my defence, seeing by the officers own admission, it was the deciding factor in the charge being laid.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    LOL.This is the kicker. Tonight while being driven home in a "Customer Shuttle" provided by a local business, We (Driver/Myself/Other passengers) observed/commented on a police car that "ran" TWO flashing red lights and then parked his car in the middle of the street and exited it. Through ALL of this he had NO lights flashing. Not even 4 way flashers when parked in the street.

    By the time I got out of the shuttle and over to the were the cop was, he had moved his vehicle and another had joined him. The "offending" cop car was unoccupied when I got there, so I asked the other car who was driving it. At that moment an officer walked up and said it was his car. I told him the problem I had with his breaking the law and he said I shouldn't tell him how to do his job.

    I walked 1/2 block to the police station and asked the officer behind the desk if a citizen could press vehicular charges against another and he said yes (If you are willing to go to court). I said "Sure" and told him I wanted 3 charges brought against officer "Smith" for the offences myself and others witnessed (His dash cam with show it too). He asked "did he have his lights flashing?" I said NO.

    He said "OH, ok" and took my complaint.

  • Pardoned Canadians entry into United States.?

    What US Government department do I contact to attempt to straighten out my denial of access to the US? Background: I had made MANY driving trips to the US without incident. When I attempted to fly (PRE 911) I was asked about a marijuana possession charge 20 years earlier and was told that because of that, I could not enter the US. I said that I was awaiting my Pardon for this offense and they said "Makes no difference, we don't recognize Canadian Pardons". This happened over 10 years ago and I think it is so ridicules. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

  • Does anyone know why the Americans are so racist?

    Don't mean to generalize, but why?

    It's not like you even discriminate against ONE race or creed, you discriminate against them all.

    The funny thing is that most of the racists have strong christian beliefs.

    That being so, what the heck color do you think "Jesus" was.

    Absolutely NOT "white".

    Not a chance of that.

  • Why do people ask all the dumb questions that they do?

    I mean, I cannot tell you how many health related questions people post on here, rather than seeing a doctor, etc.

    Why on earth anyone thinks that some stranger on Yahoo knows what is wrong with them, as opposed to a trained doctor who would be able to actually see the area of concern, is a mystery to me.

    Guess that is probably one of the reasons that the U.S. health system and mentality is so messed up.

  • Is there a non-religious organization for people wanting to stop drinking?

    PLEASE don't say AA. They ARE a religious organization. Don't believe me? Check the 12 steps and see how many references to "god', "supreme being", etc.

  • why do you think americans are so wrong with what they think universal health care is all about?

    I live in Canada, and excuse me...but. Yes...for some procedures, there may be a reasonable wait. But, seriously, we really do have it very good. If we had to pay the kinds of bills you Americans have to pay we would be SO screwed. Virtually ALL my prescribed meds & things like Chiro or Physio are FREE or like $2 US.

    Don't get me started on the whole "violence/firearm" thing, as far as a whole different understanding.

    In Canada, for the most part, we have firearms to shoot animals, not humans, unlike the Americans.

    But that is a totally different discussion.

  • Bringing my girlfriend from Ghana to Canada?

    I would like to talk to someone about bringing my girlfriend to Canada from Ghana. If she likes it here and all goes well, the plan is for us to marry. What is the best way to get her over here to check it out? Should she come as a tourist and then we can take it from there, or is there a better way? I would like to here from someone who has or is navigating these waters. I am a Canadian citizen.
