    Driving to New York/new Jersey from Toronto

    i just did the journey this past weekend. went over the lewiston-queenston bridge, across to syracuse and down to NYC. Fairly painless. a bunch of construction on the interstate highways but no major delays. Just be careful on the way home, the wait at the bridge crossing at...

    Any furnace/HVAC techies here?

    make sure that one blows while the other sucks. they should do so with about the same amount of force. are the vent pipes close to the furnace and without many bends? it's possible the pipe drag is too much for the burner to suck or the blower to blow.

    what cell phones service providers use gsm system? and other questions

    it's a good chance this is locked to Bell and you have to pay them roaming fees. I'd suggest what OTIS mentioned, as long as you're happy with Telus - buy an unlocked quad-band GSM phone and pick up a pay-as-you-go SIM while you're in SA The only GSM provider is Rogers. Fido falls under them...

    getting rid of a wasp's nest

    Raid Foaming Wasp killer always works for me Wait until dusk (after 8/9pm) so the wasps are slow or sleeping. and foam the shit out of the nest. if it's one of these exposed 'honeycomb' type ones: it's easy to get rid of as there aren't as many wasps and one coating will keep them away long...

    Corn on the cob

    The stuff you see today is from the u.s. and picked too early, so it's small and tasteless. Ontario corn usually comes out in the middle of summer and is best bought on the side of the road, or from a farmers-type market.
