I grew up in Prince Edward Island and wouldn't mind moving back some day. My wife also loves it there, even though she's not from there. We've discussed it, but we'll have to see what happens. We plan so that we can afford to retire anywhere reasonably priced.

Just cleaned up the BBQ and replaced the burner this past weekend. We have a Thermos 6 or 700 series, I think. It's a middle-lower end of the line type model - I think it was about $300 when we got it about 6 years ago. We BBQ nearly every night we're home in the spring/summer/fall, so it's held up ...

This is the first year in the last 5 that we didn't buy a full playoff ticket package for the Ottawa Senators. They were always our splurge for the year, although they unfortunately?/fortunately? always ended up cheaper than planned since the Sens went out earlier than expected. It wasn't so much a ...

I find the boxing a bit off too. I think, like some of the other games, the key is to take shorter punches and not move too much. I land almost all of my left jabs but have a tough time landing a right hook. My wife says I move too much when I punch. I had the same issues with baseball, tennis, and ...

I know roughly what my net worth is but don't worry too much about it. I update my calculations probably once or twice per year, but mostly I just check what ballpark I'm in and that I'm still heading in the right direction.

Chalk me up as another advocate of the MoneySense global couch potato portfolio. I use it too.

We have a CIBC Aero Classic card which accumulates Aeroplan points, but at a lower rate than the Aerogold. However, it does have a lower fee (only $29 per yr. IIRC).

I snagged a Wii last weekend. I'm not at all a gamer, but the idea of physically playing the games looked like fun. When I won $200 in my office hockey pool, I decided to spring for the difference one. I'm loving it so far, even though I suck almost as much at some of the games as I do at other vide...
