Congratulations Jim Squires!

Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl!

Congratulations Jim Squires!

This new little Baby Girl so tiny small and neat
And especially magic makes your family complete
No words could ever relay or truly express
The wishes sent for you at this time of happiness
She′s shining an Angel with a tiny sweet nose
So completely made up ten fingers, ten toes
She′s laughter and teardrops so small and brand new
And amazingly angelic and she′s sent to bless you
She′s one special Baby the best of life′s treasure
And she′ll surely bless you loving family pleasure.

Here’s what Jim had to say on his blog:

Lot’s of new baby photos on my wife’s flickr if you’re into that sort of thing.

EDIT: We’ve actually decided against Virginia. She’s had the name for two days and it just didn’t seem to fit. Plus, people are already giving her annoying nicknames that we don’t approve of like “Ginny.” The official name (we’ve already written it on the Health Card app, so there’s no going back now) is Emily Jennifer Jane.

McDonald’s Mondays: The Ben Affleck Big Mac

Other / Canada


I seriously think I may have found my new favorite blog. Celebrities Eating is, as the name would suggest, a blog about celebrities eating. They collect ever picture they can of A-list stars and starlets shoving their faces full of food, and who can blame them? It’s nice to know Nicole Richie, despite her blatant anorexia, can wolf down a twelve inch hot dog with the best of them.

This pic, from a post back in September 06, shows Ben Affleck wolfing down a Big Mac behind the wheel. Naughty naughty Mr. Affleck, you’ll get mayo all over your blouse.

The one thing that really freaks me out is how wide he can open his mouth. It’s like watching a snake eating a gopher.

McDonald’s Mondays is a weekly series of posts written by our own Jim Squires that initially appears on his pop culture blog

DELL Canada 10 Days of Deals – Day 3

DELL Canada 10 Days of Deals - Day 3

Today’s the 3rd day of DELL Canada deals. The deals are:

  • SANYO Xacti VPC-CA6 Weatherproof Digital Movie Camera $499 $299
  • LEXMARK E450dn Monochrome Laser Printer w/ Networking and Duplex Capability $499 $299
  • CREATIVE LABS Live! Cam Optia Webcam $89 $49
  • Kingston 4GB High Capacity SD Memory Card SDHC $59 $39
  • LG GBW-H10N Internal Blu-Ray Reader / Recorder drive – BD-RE – IDE – Internal – 5.25″ $799 $599

These deals are pretty bad.

Don’t bother with the Sanyo Digital Movie Camera. Because of its ultra compact size the video quality isn’t super. Still image quality is not as good as some high end Digital Cameras. So basically you’re sacrificing quality for size… a sacrifice I wouldn’t do.

The Lexmark Laser Printer for $299 is a rip off.

The Creative Cam Optia Webcam is reasonably priced at $49 and it has a high resolution but it doesn’t come with a built in microphone!! which is definitely a major drawback. I also find that if you’re planning to use the webcam just for video conferencing with friends and family, then the higher resolution doesn’t provide much of an advantage because you’re limited by your Internet speed.

The SD 4GB High Capacity SD Memory Card SDHC for $39 is okay, but BEWARE this is an SDHC model that won’t work with all electronic devices. Make sure this card will work properly on your device before buying it.

In a nutshell, today’s deals are appalling.

Shipping is free as usual.

Payphones now 50 cents


Just a heads up for the next time you forget your cell phone at home. As of last week, the cost of a local call on a Bell Canada payphone is 50 cents. I think it’s safe to assume that other payphone companies will follow.

It’s a been a long time coming — not only has there not been an increase in payphone costs since 1981 (back then they were a dime) but competition from mobile phones has pretty much rendered the standard payphone obsolete. They’re really only there for the small percentage of the population that hasn’t gone cellular yet and for when the rest of us forget our mobile devices on the charger at home.

In a different age I could see a lot of people getting bent out of shape about this, but really – does anyone care that the cost of a phone call has doubled?

Safeway Canada Sweet Air Miles Deals June 3-9

Robert D. Gibb is posting a stunning series of articles on Air Miles on the forum. I found the series very useful and enlightening so I’m posting it on the blog as well.

Robert D. Gibb is a Contributing Editor (DRIPs) at the Canadian MoneySaver Magazine.

Note that AM = Air Miles

10% Tuesday!

There aren’t a lot of spectacular name brand specials this week except Safeway has started another 4 Week “Summer” Buy 5 name brands get 50 bonus AirMiles. This offer comes with bonus AMs if you buy multiples of most of the 40 or so products highlighted. Buy 5 specials and you get a 50 AM bonus on top.

As I’ve said in the past:

1. I find it hard to find 5 of 40 I like or will consume

2. They often have the price boosted from the week before

3. House brands are often a better deal

4. Larger sizes without bonus AMs are often a better deal


DELL Canada 10 Days of Deals – Day 2

DELL Canada 10 Days of Deals - Day 2

Good deals from DELL today 🙂 Looks like I might be getting my credit card out 🙁

Today’s DELL Canada deals are:

  • DELL UltraSharp 2007WFP 20.1-inch Widescreen Flat Panel LCD Monitor $399 $299
  • MICROSOFT Wireless Optical Desktop 700 Keyboard $39 $29
  • SANYO DECT 6.0 Digital Cordless Touch-Keypad Telephone w/ CID and Speakerphone $99 $59
  • Sony ICFCD814W CD Clock Radio with Line Input for MP3 Players $69 $39
  • Philips HTS6500/37 DivX Ultra DVD Home Theatre System $349 $249

The 20.1 inch Widescreen Flat Panel LCD Monitor is an ultrasharp model. DELL’s ultrasharp models are of extremely high quality and display very solid colours and a true black. Other models, like the 22” regular (not ultrasharp) costs $299 or even less but if you’re picky about colours I’d actually go for this deal. I have two DELL monitors at home, an ultrasharp one and a regular one, and the difference is noticeable, especially the black colour… but I’m a fussy person 😛

In a nutshell, if your main priority is quality and colour the DELL UltraSharp 20.1-inch for $299 an awesome deal. If you use your computer to check emails and browse the net and aren’t too picky about colours that’s not the right deal for you.

MICROSOFT Wireless Optical Desktop 700 Keyboard for $29 is very reasonably priced. But don’t expect the greatest mouse and keyboard designs.

The SANYO Digital Cordless Touch-Keypad Telephone with caller ID and Speakerphone for $59 is definitely a hot deal! I’m buying one of these phones as soon as I finish writing this review. This phone has a good sound quality, very low interference (will not interfere with your wireless modem) and it looks very stylish and elegant. Only complaints, is that the touch keypad is too sensitive, but that’s not a big deal

The other two deals are crap.

Shipping is free as usual.

iPhone Ad… Never been an iPod

I like this ad. It’s clear, to the point and not as cheesy as Apple’s usual ads. At least they’re sort of attacking their own product, and not a Microsoft product for a change.
