Sometimes, you just don’t want to be happy. I mean, you say you want to. You think you want to. But you don’t really want to, because you mope or you whine or you just grunt. Here are three sneaky tricks you can use against yourself…and the best part is that you will never be the wiser.
How many gift cards do you have hanging around? Canada passed laws (or was it Ontario?) to stop the practice of “expiring” gift cards, but evidently Canadians on average have 7 gift cards with a value of about $475.00 sitting around not being used.

You might be answering the title question with a big “Who cares?” But if you generate solar power to feed in to the grid, it is worth understanding how you will be paid. And you will be paid for kilowatt hours. I can give you the specs in Ontario; in other jurisdictions the numbers will vary, but the basics – especially the physics – will remain the same.
Whether it’s standing in line waiting to get into the bar for some fun and games, or whether you’ve had a few drinks and have drawn some unwanted attention to yourself (never your fault, of course!) there will come a time when you have to converse with a bouncer.

A week ago, blood was spilled on the floor of the Internet. Last week’s surprise purge of some of the most active users at BlogEngage has brought to the forefront the long-simmering controversy of how social websites decide to delete people’s accounts. Here is the current policy on how Zoomit Canada deals with such issues…
By now you have probably heard of Siri, the virtual assistant that you can get for your iPhone. Well, it seems Siri can now do things, not just say things. “Do” as in remotely lock and unlock your car. Or start it. Or pop the trunk. Pretty impressive? Well, not quite.

“May all your months be November.” So goes the ancient Chinese curse. Well, actually, the curse really goes: “May you live in interesting times.” You see, “interesting” times – those that you read about in the history books – are times of war and famine and terror. If you operate a solar generating system, November is an “interesting” time.
Your first move, as a parent, is to explain how credit cards work. Teens need to understand that credit cards don’t represent “their” money. Credit cards are loans. Show your child a statement, and explain that when you carry a balance, money is added to the total, since you are charged interest.
This is my favourite Christmas song, by New Brunswick country artists Remi Boudreau. Given that we are full-steam into shopping season, this might help us all to keep it real. Watch and listen to the video…
