I just noticed I haven't seen no-money down real- estate infomercials for quite awhile. Maybe I just don't see them here. Carlton Sheets. The two dwarfs. Some other characters whose names I don't remember.

All the house flippers.


The money is now in rentals. Flipping is very hard if you at all care about the quality of work and materials you do and use.

Good god, you're joking. Why the hell not? The beer
aisle in most large stores here is a full aisle, and both
sides. Every beer under the sun, they sell tons of it.


and BC's laws are a bit more liberal than Ontarios. Here, you can buy alcohol only
from the "Beer Store" -- yes, it's called the Beer Store, and the LCBO.

No alcohol in the grocery stores (yet you can buy cooking wine) except for some grocery stores
that have a section at the front of the store where they will sell wine and cider (no beer) usually
all from the same group of wineries.

Early Marilyn Monroe, just talking. Or about as close to unscripted as I found.

You could buy full size strike anywhere matches everywhere
when I was a kid. Try and find them now. When you do see
them, they're the tiny kind that snap in two before they'll
light.

Remember when everybody had a burn barrel in the backyard
where they burned their paper items. That was half the fun
of being a kid, burning the trash as we called it. Take a handfull
of kitchen matches with you, and it was great fun. Now I have
to call the fire dept if I want to burn anything outside and tell
them. Big fine if I don't. And I live in the country.

Never had a burn barrel, but the corner of our yard was where my dad would make a bonfire of leaves and sticks from yardwork. And sometimes we would throw other stuff in it as well. We had a really big backyard at that particular house.

You had to have one if you had a house and
lived in the city or burbs. There were no giant
plastic trash bins to roll out to the curb, we
all had small metal cans and the paper trash
wouldn't fit in them. In the country people
had a dump behind their houses, out in
the back 40. And there was a dump in every
township also. This is just 45 years ago, very
primitive times.

All foods, even milk, came in paper and
cardboard containers, or metal cans. Almost
nothing was in plastic. So paper trash
added up very fast and needed to be
dealt with almost every day. Nobody
recycled newspapers or mags, it all went
into the barrel.

I've actually, half-looking for a few boxes to put in my go-bag, car, and other emergency places. If they are hard to find it is probably the meth-heads to thank.

I wish I could keep a burn barrel, and if I lived in the next county I would. I bet I could cut my trash by 50% if I could burn the paper content.

I see "no burn before 4 PM" signs all over the country now. There must be a statistic about the probability of a fire spreading depending on what time of day you burn. Of course there are days they don't want you to burn at all, but 4 PM is every day.

Writing this prompted me to google it. Found this link below, maybe it is a Virginia thing. It states "Since forest fuels cure during the winter months, the danger of fire is higher in early spring than in summer when the forest and grasses are green with new growth. The 4:00 p.m. Burning Law is an effective tool in the prevention of forest fires. Localities may have more restrictive outdoor burning laws."

No mention of any statistical finding.

I was always taught that mondays were "no burn" days because people put their laundry out to dry and when people burned the clothes soaked up the smoke smell same as being in a smoky bar. Not saying this is a reason just saying it is what I was taught.

When I was a kid the school burned paper instead of throwing it out. I was never told but I think the practice ended about 1980.

Or you could just recycle it.
