    Pascal's Hardware, that brings back memories.

    I was there when they opened their store in Ottawa, on Merivale Rd. The guy who did that film about raising canada geese and teaching them to fly, was also a welder/artist, and he did up the massive welded art piece that flanked the doors.

    That was Bill Lichman of Port Perry Ontario. Ironically, Mr Conservation's wife owned and operated Lichman Furs (specialized in very expensive woven beaver skin coats and hats) right on the main drag. Lol.

    I think you will find his name was Bill Lishman and his wife was Paula Lishman, a fashion designer and president of the Fur Council of Canada. Bill was known to eat "trouble makers" among the Canada geese on his farm. He passed away in 2017.

    I lived in Port Perry for a little over a year back around 1993. All this time and all I did was misspell his name by one letter ? Not too bad. Lol.

    I was at the electrical supply store today picking up some unistrut and conduit. The salesman tells me that the pvc conduit manufacturer told them that they won't be accepting any orders from them or anyone in Canada for at least a month. All of their stock will be going towards hurricane rebuilds in the US. If you are needing any conduit or other supplies I'd gather them now while there is still some stock to be had.

    As for pricing I actually don't know what I paid since I forgot to ask and I just get a shipping label at the time. They email me a bill later on.

    Consumer prices rise 5.3% annually in August

    The Labor Department said Tuesday that the consumer price index rose 5.3% year over year last month, matching economists’ expectations. Prices increased 0.3% month over month, slower than the 0.4% gain that was anticipated.

Last time I asked him is this going to happen each time I buy meat and he said yes as that is now their most stolen or shoplifted item from Walmart.

    When I got home I found those white Loss Prevention tags that you often find on expensive items in shops attached under the plastic on my meat trays. Things are getting bad when basic uncooked food is your most stolen/shoplifted item.
    In one of my previous lives I did security/loss prevention. Meat is absolutely the #1 stolen item in grocery stores, has been for decades. Yellow scope is also high on the list. Apparently those who are poor, disenfranchised and enjoy the imbibement of said scope for their daily buzz prefer the taste of that the most. That's why some places lock it up.
