Best Restaurant at Lake Winnipeg, at the Beach If you would like to spend a relaxing day on the beach, then you should include an enjoyable dinner. The Idle Thyme is just the place for that.

Thanksgiving Dinner at Lake Winnipeg

There are many ways to celebrate and express thanks at Thanksgiving. Even in difficult times, there are always things for which to be grateful. Many Resaurants are closed, because of the bad economy. But on Traverse Bay Corner, the Idle Thyme Restaurant didn't. It is still open. (Thanks Cheryl) So you can go there for your Thanksgiving Dinner.

Blackouts and power outages after high winds

For most of us in this area the outages only lasted for a few hours. Some parts of Vancouver on the other hand have been without power for 3 days already - and some won't be able to turn on their electric stove till late Wednesday according to the BC Hydro Company. 2000 customers were without power there. The traffic lights didn't work and absolute chaos resulted. I'm glad that didn't happen here! Could you imagine being without traffic lights for 3 whole days?

Rogers vs MTS for mobile phones at the Lake

Well, Rogers mobile phone services is a lot cheaper than MTS and I liked the phone they were offering with their plan. It wasn't the iPhone of course, but it was a top of the line Nokia. What I also liked alot was the fact that the technology used enables me to switch the SIM card in the phone and use a different mobile phone provider when I am in Europe. They also told me that the Rogers phone services would work in Europe, but admitted that the roaming costs would kill me. One thing I just cannot understand though, is why in Canada we have to pay extra for every little thing that Europeans consider to be part of a standard mobile phone package - such as 'caller-id display', 'call forwarding', 'voice mail', etc. In Europe nobody would accept a mobile plan where you have to pay for incoming calls either.
