if you live in calgary and want to check if your favourite lunch place could have been responsible for that stomach bug you caught, you can check their environmental health inspection reports and see if they had any health violations on recent inspections. i am sure this information is public in most cities, but i had never thought to look it up before.
in my meandering around the www today i also found this recipe for the concoction that supposedly gets any red wine stain out. i haven't tried it on my cream coloured jacket yet, but once i buy some peroxide, i will indeed.
and this website kept me occupied for a few minutes earlier this week when i should have been working. you can make yourself into a picasso and you can see mine here. fun!
