I told him that I was currently travelling in Germany and the call was being forwarded, but I was pretty sure that the park had picnic fascilities and fire pits. None the less, I just checked it up on the Web. Patricia Beach Provincial Park has fire pits!

The Weather for the Beaches along the eastern shore of Lake Winnipeg can be totally different – Even though the Beaches are only about 60 miles north of Winnipeg
Garbage in the more environmentally conscious European countries has become a resource that people are willing to pay for! Garbage is being recycled and incinerated. With the price of non-renewable resources such as copper and iron, sorting the trash and extracting recyclable material has become profitable.
The remains belong to a 22 year old Winnipeg man, last seen in the York Avenue area on February 6th. Apart from the fact the the Winnipeg RCMP major crimes unit is investigating the case as a possible homicide, police were not willing to reveal any more details.
The already badly decomposed body had been found floating in a barrel in the Lee River on Wednesday when two residents of Fisher’s Grove discovered the barrel and its contents while repairing a dock.
People may even have to think twice before planning a weekend trip to the cottage. For most families a trip to the Lake from Winnipeg and back with their family car will cost them between 40 and 50 Liters of gasoline. That’s between 60 and 70 bucks right there – and you haven’t picked up groceries, gotten gas for the boat or filled up the propane tank yet.
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.
Though it can be sunny at the Beaches the weather forcast for Southern Manitoba will predict rain. I wish Environment Canada would discover the area from Patricia Beach to Victoria Beach. Not even Grand Beach gets mentioned in 99% of the weather forecasts! A good place to check the current weather is our Eastern Beaches Website. We have a link there that displays the current weather for the Beaches Area of Manitoba.
