Agree or Disagree: Restaurants banning “distracting children” from their establishments.
This is an article about a restaurant called the Old Fisherman’s Grotto in Monterey California.
They have decided to ban crying children. They have also let customers know that they don’t welcome strollers, high chairs and booster chairs.
You might have reacted negatively, but the restaurant says their business has grown. As well, according to the article,other restaurants are taking the same policy.
What do you think of this?
I have just returned from a week from Toronto.
I saw lots of different things. The Toronto Blue Jays, The Toronto FC, The Hockey Hall of Fame, Wayne Gretzky’s and more! I ate lots of different foods as well. Overall, a good trip.
i had two main ways of transportation. One was walking. The other was Transit. Quite frankly, I was surprised at how slow it was. There are buses and subways, but it takes a long time to get anywhere. It’s not only slow, it’s expensive. If you live in a suburb like Burlington or Hamilton and you want to transfer into Toronto, you would use the GO service. You have to pay to use the GO Service AND you have to pay to use the TTC.
In the current Mayoral election in Toronto, public transit is a major issue. Everyone has different ideas. One idea that even came up during the Ontario Provincial Election has been privatizing the transit system. It’s something that happens in some places in the States and around the world.
One of The Pro’s-It creates competition which will naturally provide better service.
One of the Con’s-It can cause confusion for riders. Companies would not necessarily provide their competitors transit information.
What are your thoughts? Would you support a privatized Public Transit System?
There is a new law in Calgary.
Calgary City Council has introduced a new law for those patrons that puke in a cab.
It will cost $100 if you happen to do this in a cab
Now, I am having issues posting on my IPad. So, I will be posting a link in the comments.
However, I have some concerns
1) We are assuming everyone out late night is drunk
2) We are assuming that the reason people get sick is because they are drunk. You could be sick because of food poisoning for example
3)We are assuming the only people that use a cab service late at night is drunk people.
4) Who implements the fine?
I understand the cab companies,not needing to be on the hook. But am I the only one who thinks this isn’t thought out?

It has been one week since the anti-spam CASL has been in effect.
Before the law was implemented,I went to a couple of information sessions on this. I can tell you from what I saw , there was a lot of confusion about CASL.
And there still is.
In the above column from Beacon News, Derrick James argues that this law is punishing charities.
I’ll let you read and then ask you what you think.
You may or may not be aware but this, but the Calgary Stampede begins this weekend.
The reality is that the Calgary Stampede is the identity of Calgary. It’s the biggest event of the year and the City invests in it. Physically, mentally, and emotionally.
People around the world will travel around the world to come to the Stampede. And it will attract well over one million people. It’s an economic boon for the City of Calgary.
However, I’m getting a sense there is some people tired of the Stampede. They are tired of the crowds and the behaviour of some. But, most of all, they are tired of the prices of…..everything.
The moment you decide to go to Stampede, the reality is you can spend over $100-$200. Easily. That’s a lot to ask for many.
Do you think the Calgary Stampede is good value for it’s money?

When it comes to partner’s exes, this can be a complex issue. Some relationships have a deeper and longer history than others. But, more and more, this is an issue that has to be contended with. As well as tough to handle. Which can lead to more complications.
I’m sure some of you will have some experiences to share about this. Is there a healthy way to deal with your partner’ sexes?
What are your thoughts?
