Tires, tires and more tires.....
John posted a topic in General DiscussionI have a fair number of last season tires that I am moving out at cost or less to make room for 2018 inventory. There is everything from Truck tires to Performance Tires. Before I put them on Kijiji I figured I would give OFC members a look and see if anything floats your boat. I will install and balance any set for $50.00 including full manufacturers warranty and additional 5 year tire protection plan that gives free flat tire repair at over 70 stores in Ontario and pro-rated road hazard warranty. The Tire Protection Plan is $40.00 alone. If you want a sneak preview send me size by PM.. I will post a list in classifieds tomorrow.......thanks Art for OK'ing this...
Free Website Design For OFC Members
James77 posted a topic in Member Business Directory.Hey folks, Now hockey season is over, I have more free time on my hands to get back into web design. I want to help you, which will in turn help me. I need to do up some new websites for my portfolio. All I ask is that you cover my expenses, give me an honest opinion of the service and final product, and all of my work will be free of charge. I will build, or re-design your current website. I will also happily hook you up with a business Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. I know a lot of OFCers have businesses fishing related, or not. I believe I can help! It is preferred if you are able to meet up in the GTA, if not I can still accommodate you. I'm going to be limiting it to 5 free websites. First come first served basis. Mods, if this is deemed inappropriate please delete it, I apologize if this was breaking a rule.
Too cold for convertibles
lew posted a topic in General DiscussionI've been retired from the Fire Dept in Toronto for 15 years now but I still enjoy wandering through the internet reading about things pertaining to fighting fires. I was looking at some trucks this morning and came across this picture and this truck is identical to one I drove for many years, a 1960 King Seagrave. Great truck and nice to drive in the good weather, but as you can see it was a convertible which made it a beast in the winter. There'd be as much snow & ice inside the cab as there was outside and even though there were windshield wipers on the outside, there were no defrosters so you still couldn't see out. Tough driving a big truck with one hand while using an ice scraper with the other LOL After being at a winter fire all night your soaking wet and froze solid and 1/2 the time I was driving back to the hall I couldn't feel the steering wheel or gear shift and & my poor old frozen feet didn't know when they were on the pedals. I loved every minute of my 32 years on the job, but sure don't miss the frozen nights cruising around town in a convertible when it's -20
Ralph Field posted a topic in General Discussionndma's Invitation (Priceless) Grandma's Invitation (Priceless) Dear Family, I'm not dead yet. Thanksgiving is still important to me. If being in my Last Will and Testament is important to you, then you might consider being with me for my favorite holiday. Dinner is at 2:00. Not 2:15. Not 2:05. Two. 2:00 Arrive late and you get what's left over. Last year, that moron Marshall fried a turkey in one of those contraptions and practically burned the deck off the house. This year, the only peanut oil used to make the meal will be from the secret scoop of peanut butter I add to the carrot soup. Jonathan, your last new wife was an idiot. You don't arrive at someone's house on Thanksgiving needing to use the oven and the stove. Honest to God, I thought you might have learned after two wives - date them longer and save us all the agony of another divorce. Now, the house rules are slightly different This year because I have decided that 47% of you don't know how to take care of nice things. Paper plates and red Solo cups might be bad for the environment, but I'll be gone soon and that will be your problem to deal with. House Rules: 1. The University of Texas no longer plays Texas A&M. The television stays off during the meal. 2. The "no cans for kids" rule still exists. We are using 2 liter bottles because your children still open a third can before finishing the first two. Parents can fill a child's cup when it is empty. All of the cups have names on them and I'll be paying close attention to refills. 3. Chloe, last year we were at Trudy's house and I looked the other way when your Jell-O salad showed up. This year, if Jell-O salad comes in the front door it will go right back out the back door with the garbage. Save yourself some time, honey. You've never been a good cook and you shouldn't bring something that wiggles more than you. Buy something from the bakery. 4. Grandmothers give grandchildren cookies and candy. That is a fact of life. Your children can eat healthy at your home. At my home, they can eat whatever they like as long as they finish it. 5. I cook with bacon and bacon grease. That's nothing new. Your being a vegetarian doesn't change the fact that stuffing without bacon is like egg salad without eggs. Even the green bean casserole has a little bacon grease in it. That's why it tastes so good. Not eating bacon is just not natural. And as far as being healthy... look at me. I've outlived almost everyone I know. 6. Salad at Thanksgiving is a waste of space. 7. I do not like cell phones. Leave them in the car. 8. I do not like video cameras. There will be 32 people here. I am sure you can capture lots of memories without the camera pointed at me. 9. Being a mother means you have to actually pay attention to the kids. I have nice things and I don't put them away just because company is coming over. Mary, watch your kids and I'll watch my things. 10. Rhonda, a cat that requires a shot twice a day is a cat that has lived too many lives. I think staying home to care for the cat is your way of letting me know that I have lived too many lives too. I can live with that. Can you? 11. Words mean things. I say what I mean. Let me repeat: You don't need to bring anything means you don't need to bring anything. And if I did tell you to bring something, bring it in the quantity I said. Really, this doesn't have to be difficult. 12. Domino's and cards are better than anything that requires a battery or an on/off switch. That was true when you were kids and it's true now that you have kids. 13. Showing up for Thanksgiving guarantees presents at Christmas. Not showing up guarantees a card that may or may not be signed. In memory of your Grandfather, the back fridge will be filled with beer. Drink until it is gone. I prefer wine anyway. But one from each family needs to be the designated driver. I really mean all of the above. Love You, Grandma.

How not to win friends
SirCranksalot posted a topic in General DiscussionDuring lunch at work last week, I ate 3 plates of beans (which I know I shouldn’t do due to past experiences). When I got home, my wife seemed excited to see me and exclaimed delightedly: “sweetie I have a surprise for dinner tonight.” She then blindfolded me and led me to my chair at the dinner table. I took a seat and just as she was about to remove my blindfold, the telephone rang. She made me promise not to touch the blindfold until she returned and went to answer the call. The beans I had consumed were still affecting me and the pressure was becoming unbearable, so while my wife was out of the room, I seized the opportunity, shifted my weight to one leg and let one go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in from of a garbage dump. I took my napkin from my lap and fanned the air around me vigorously. Then, shifted to the other leg, I ripped off three more. I thought for a minute that I had crapped myself! The stink was worse than cooked cabbage. Keeping my ears carefully tuned to the conversation in the other room, I went on releasing atomic ass bombs like this for another few minutes. The pleasure was indescribable! Eventually the telephone farewells signaled the end of my freedom, so I quickly fanned the air a few more times with my napkin, placed it back on my lap and folded my hands back on the table feeling very relieved and pleased with myself for my “tactical discharge”. My face must have been the picture of innocence, when my wife returned, apologizing for taking so long. She asked me if I had peaked through the blindfold, and I assured her that I had not. At this point, she removed the blindfold, and thirteen dinner guests seated around the table with their hands to the noses, chorused: “Happy Birthday”…
