The handling fee under each category is simply the charge for me if I was purchasing and not to recycle, right?

EDIT: Nvm, mobile site doesn't say "Charged at the time of purchase"

Ethical Recycling............. so many reasons to do it and it costs you absolutely nothing. For those who always wanted to learn about computers and how they work, volunteer there. Totally hands on learning.

Ichiro Suzuki joins the 3000 club. He joined the majors at the age of 27!!!

If they had counted his hits when playing in Japan, he'd be past number one hitter, Pete Rose.

My order from Foreverspin came in this afternoon. NICE!!!

Even received a bonus key fob and a mystery gift card worth anywhere from 5 bucks to 100 bucks.

Everything comes in its own box and a cloth bag.

I ordered the titanium top and spin base. Definitely going to order a set of tops........... so many choices.

Owns/leases a BMW... how is the guy making mortgage/car payments? I mean the wife is a fitness trainer but i find it hard to believe she is making 6 figs doing her thing to be able to afford all that????

I heard it was a dispute between him, producers, and the other host Randy. She originally quit out of left field then the station sent him on his way because of it... Then the next day Randy returns to work and kid is gone forever, weird that he still isn't working tho and living how he does

As someone that hates trying to find parking, I would like to recommend Lonsdale Quay as a great place to bring your SO and/or family. Parking is plentiful and free. There are lots of places to eat and drink. Green Leaf brewing, and Tap and Barrel are a stones throw from one another.

any of you guys buy a basketball jersey recently?
I haven't bought one in a while and from what I rmbr they fit long and baggy

i've got a nephew's bday coming up and i've agreed to chip in and get him a jersey.
He's about ~5'3, 120 lbs, 36-38 chest if i had to guess

I haven't popped by the malls to check em out but how do Youth Large/XL fit vs a Men's small? Been browsing google and the answers look pretty dated.
Seems like Youth L might fit him and its a bit cheaper but I'm not sure how the fit is. Anyone here rock youth sizes?

doubt the inheritance part... he shared on the show he was raised by a single mom and was from east coast...

the paid out biiiig part makes sense....

i wonder how much morning radio show hosts of his caliber get paid? think like 250k/yr?

did 104.9 ever share what the beef was about?
i missed it when he left 94.5 too...

Dave Pratt who was like the anchor of 1040 for years was presumably making about 160 a year when his big contract dispute was going on

Dunno if kid Carson would be making over 200

Is it free to weigh your truck anywhere in the lower mainland? I want to find out the GVWR of my truck.

i tried googling to find out what happened or go through his social media stuff for answers and there's nothing. also nothing about why he left 94.5 as well. i didn't mind him talking i thought he was one of the better radio personalities.

I think you can go to the Vancouver transfer station on SE Marine Dr. They weigh your truck when you enter and leave. Maybe bring something to throw out while you're at it.

Edit: nvm there's a minimum fee, so it's not free
