Passing of a Legend

1958 - 2009

1958 - 2009

Michael Jackson has been a pure legend to me. The King of Pop.

I’ve always said, if there was one artist that I would LOVE to see perform live, that would be Michael Jackson. Unfotunately, that will never happen now, and we’ll only be able to live through his music. If every wedding I goto plays his song once during the receptions, I’ll be a happy man.

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” - Michael Jackson.

UPS Needs to Wake Up

I ordered some postcards from a company in the states. The order was shipped on Jan 26th 2009. The cost of these cards were $79.95USD, however I had a $40 coupon, making the order $39.95.

The company that shipped the postcards listed the cost as $79.95. TODAY I receive the invoice from UPS.

UPS bills me $11.97 in GST/PST (based on the $79.95USD which works out to $99.78CDN). I call them to inform them of the mistake. The rep I speak with says they have been trying to get this paid for. I said I got it TODAY. He says that the paperwork looks correct on their side, and that if I want to have it RE-rated then I need to get the company to fax them a new invoice. He also says that because it is past the ‘lock-out date’ that it would take 9 months to have it re-rated. 

9 MONTHS?! Are you kidding me? I told him, thats not my issue, and that I’ll get the company in the states to fax it to them. I’d rather hold on to the money, then give it over to UPS just like that.

Rancilio Commercial Naked/Bottomless Handle

As some of you know (who have been to our place) we love to make good coffee. We received a Rancilio Silvia as our wedding gift, which gets some amazing use (next to our touchless soap dispenser!).

As I’ve slowly perfected the perfect latte (thank you Adam for all your help!), I’ve started looking online to see what others have done, and come across this naked handle. I went to Espressotec and picked one up.

HANDS DOWN, best investment ever (for the Rancilio that is). The amount of crema that comes out is INSANE (your not loosing any inside the spout). Not to mention I can fit my bigger mug undernear without chipping it. If you don’t have one, GET one (ahem, ADAM!).
