    Loblaw buys Shoppers Drug Mart for $12.4 Billion

    a lot of hurdles to get this deal to close...shareholders and the competition bureau particularly, not sure about the owner-operators of the pharmacies embedded in SDM. LCL may have to divest a good chunk of their stores. Not surprising after the sobeys merger announcement last month, the...

    Nobody Cares...

    I'm a happily married man, but when a tall leggy blonde in a miniskirt and high heels falls into you on the subway and proceeds to flirt and you playfully banter... and i've had a couple of drinks.... and it's been a little while since i last got lucky, it takes every ounce of willpower to do...

    Who's the Best Interior Decorator on TRIBE?

    I have no reccos unfortunately, but I certainly empathize with KW's desire to have an interior decorator....the amount of time I've spent with my wife on window decorations, carpets, coffee tables, closets, paint colours, etc was substantial and my part was easy, basically saying yes dear or i...

    Toronto's Rising Waters

    I still don't have power at home, expected to be back early evening tonight so had to throw out all my dairy and meat.... but relative to some of the stories i heard today about 4 hour commutes home and bus/hitchiking nightmares, i think i got off pretty easily.

    Toronto's Rising Waters

    I made it through that underpass yesterday, but just barely.....I was expecting the little mermaid to end up in my backseat.

    Egypt protests

    on top of their legal requirement (assuming that is true) I think the U.S. should suspend their aid to Egypt until Egypt gets their ducks in a row as to how they are going to implement a fair and long term sustainable solution to the governance of their country.

    Egypt protests

    A confluence of three factors, I think the second one being the most crucial: 1. Morsi tried to amend the controversial new constitution to immunize both himself and the constitution from any judicial/legal challenges - which is a dictatorship Mubarak-like move, exactly the opposite type of...

    Egypt protests

    unless the institutions in egypt fundamentally change, this is just going to be a short term solution and they will continue to experience inertia.

    Cash or a Gift? The Ultimate Question

    cheque, cash or something on the registry. if you can, try and estimate and at least cover the costs per head if you give cash. but give what you can. jolly ranchers are never appropriate as a wedding gift, but the bride was tacky in her reaction.

    Growing Up, Moving On?

    Down's and Autism are a piece of cake next to some of the rare neurological and physiloigical diseases out there (Ian Brown from the globe did a feature on his son who has a rare genetic condition is not able to communicate at all, injures himself, can't do anything independently including going...

    Growing Up, Moving On?

    The friends who alienate you or those you alienate when you have a baby were not destined to be friends for life. I know there are some friends that I won't see as much/if at all after the baby is born, except for perhaps 1-2 nights per year as part of a bigger boys night out. There are also...

    Growing Up, Moving On?

    So true, it teaches you to relish the moments in your life that you are not barfing in your mouth.

    Growing Up, Moving On?

    One of those priceless life moments. it's definitely not for everyone and i don't agree with people who say couples that don't have or adopt kids are selfish....it's a choice, and some people prefer to be childless whether it's not wanting the stress of raising children, wanting to enjoy nice...

    Growing Up, Moving On?

    you don't have kids for happiness or economically rational reasons...they are expensive, time-consuming, sleep and energy-depriving and require you to put your own needs second. but all the people i trust in life have said that raising kids is the most meaningful thing they have ever done...
