The Gov't decided to make that an impossibility and made the manufacturers add salt (sodium? whatever) to the wine so that it wasn't drinkable and could only be used for flavouring/seasoning. Bunch of winos died in the weeks following, but the rest figured it out.

So if you've got a recipe, cut back on the salt if it's got cooking wine in it too.

Check Wal-Mart... I don't remember if I saw it here or in the States. But places like Home Outfitters or Bed Bath and Beyond may have them as well.

I'm looking for a neck tie with the Canucks as a design, does anyone know where to get one?! Preferably local but even online is ok! I can't find it anywhere!

I've found some of other teams but no Canucks ...

(I think this one is ugly, but just a sample lol)

It was a 4 sided, stand alone display with about 4-6 shelves per side. It's in the back between the dairy and bulk section. There were about 30-40 packs?

Not totally local, but I bought a Harbour Freight trailer for like $140 in Bellingham. Use it to tote my race tires to the track.
