Posted in: Dead money: Battle for Japanese inheritances heats up See in context

My mother in law has been giving her children and my daughter the maximum amount of gift money for years...upwards of 15 years now. She also started a tax sheltered education account of I believe 15 million yen for my daughter's education. She's doing her best to see that the government doesn't get a huge chunk of what she's worked so hard for during her lifetime. The money that we save in not having to pay for high education costs has been invested so we'll see how it all goes.

Hard to take him seriously as a politician but I do kinda like him. He's like when I first watched Spinal Tap....when mocumetaries were a new thing. You're not really sure if he's for real or just messing with us...

Porn....too much easily accessible porn. Dudes just aren't interested in the ladies any more. Partly I jest but I'll bet it's statistically significant.

@M3M3M3......Summer or winter..Good question. Being from Victoria where the seasons are less defined than other parts of Canada the answer is a little more tricky. Probably summer I guess as fall, winter and spring are all fairly wet and cold...haha..

Posted in: Canadian Expat Voting Rights See in context

I just read Donald Sutherland's article on the GlobeandMail.

I haven't been in Canada for 20 years although I will always identify myself as being a Canadian. I understand both sides I guess. I am not a resident so why should my vote influence local politics. I get that...... BUT...I also have zero burden to the country but spend a lot of money when I do come home for visits and have investments in Canada of which I pay a lot in tax. Most expats are medium to high earners and usually carry some influence in their opinions. Remembering that I am a "zero" on the books I will tell you that there are many ten's if not hundreds of people who have vacationed, studied or are living in Canada because of my suggestion to do so. Lots of dollars being spent I'll tell you. Us expats often have a somewhat fictional elevated image of our homeland. There's truth in the adage "Absence makes the heart grow fonder". I rave about Canada........ Now, compare my contributions to what a low income or socially assisted resident brings to the books. Well....better not go there I guess. My biggest disappointment is the calories (bucks) that are being burnt on THIS topic. Expat votes are statistically insignificant...I guess every vote "counts" but really...come on...Donald (or many of us) has done more for Canada than a great many residents have done for Canada..!!

I say let them kill each other to thin the herd of nutballs who are at some point going to unite and turn their gun sights on you and me... en mass. By proxy of Sharia Law there are no alternatives.

Well, there are at least 30 strays right around the area that I live in...They had a vet come in 5 or 6 years ago to do a fix and release and the number has leveled off but I do see a few new litters of kittens so I guess they missed a few or maybe they were too young at the time.

Not that I support this guy or his methods but I can certainly understand his sentiments. Now, all you yahoo posters screaming bloody blue murder.....check out the garbage bins behind any of the hundreds of animal shelters....

Droll Quarry wrote...."There it is, the racist card. Race has absolutely no part in this debate. The Muslims sit on the side lines while one extremist group after the other chops off heads in the name of religion . There is NO outcry from the world Muslims over these murders and the extremism. There are no Muslims on the WORLD STAGE decrying that this must stop. One can only surmise from the silence that they agree with the radicals and are unwilling to side against them."

Totally agree. And if they don't step up en mass denouncing these nut jobs...things are going to get very ugly.... and deservedly so.

If it was ever a safety issue they would have made you check the phone in your luggage. It was BS from the start.

Posted in: Survey shows longer periods of smartphone use can lead to lower school exam scores See in context

My 11 yr old spends quite a bit of time on her iphone.

Essentially, she has replaced what she was watching on tv with the clips and programs of her choice on the phone.

With no mention of relation of time spent on other forms of entertainment....like tv and games, the survey has no point of reference.

weird and ambiguous..
