RE: Full Moon on Friday the 13th an UFOs woo woo woo

I have been interested in Astronomy for many years. In all that time I have had TWO sightings of objects that I just can't explain. This despite also being interested in aircraft which has explained many sightings over the years. The first sighting in 1960 just COULD have been birds, but I have never seen anything like it since. The second sighting, in 1974, though, defies all explanations. Even with 2019 technology, I can't come up with how this could have happened.

RE: A couple of hot cars on main street late today !

I think the Ford GT shown here is the second new version built in Canada. I think it has a V6, unlike the first series and the original British GT40 both of which had V8s , but is more powerful than either of them.

RE: Change the date of Halloween...?

I don't think it was for an extra hour of Trick or Treat, but so it's more daylight while the Trick-or-Treaters are out and about. Makes them a little more visible. That was the reason given around here as well!

Enough of this fun. Now for those who know Canada? I want to cross the border on 4th of July weekend, that comes on Thursday. Would Saturday be a low traffic day? Do we expect any extra traffic on the 4th in Canada at all? In Canada, July 4th is just the day between the 3rd and the 5th! I suppose it could be a little busier with a few Americans crossing the border to eat poutine and drink real beer. However wouldn't most be wanting to stay at home and spend the day saluting the flag and eating hot dogs?

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

Latest news is that has gone from three dead and two missing to three dead and two suspects on the run. The two missing teens from Port Alberni , where we used to live, are now suspects in maybe all three deaths!

RE: Hottest and most humid morning of the Summer !

And ours, here on the coast in the Great White North are 79F and 53F. and a light breeze off the Pacific!

RE: Hottest and most humid morning of the Summer !

Yesterday near Toronto, where our daughter lives, the combined heat and humidity was 47C or 117F . On Friday at a nearby hotel, there was a car at the front door with a Thule ski rack on the roof. Inside at the front desk, a couple was asking directions to the nearest ski hill. The vehicle had plates from a nearby state! I thought this was just an urban myth!

RE: Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

That could be an option, to import it from Mexico, but from what I can remember, which isn't that much as I wasn't really involved, was that the Mhome did not need to be imported into the US as it had already originated from the US and had been registered there for 14-15 years. Same as if it had to be brought back into Canada, it wouldn't have to be imported again. We'll see what happens as our friend has been in contact with the various authorities. Thanks for all your input on this , and I will let you know what happens.

RE: Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

Pardon me if Im missing something but What is the difference between Registration and Title? Isnt it the same thing? As far as I can tell, the 'Title' on a vehicle in the US, is similar to the 'Title' that we used to have on Real Estate here in BC, many years ago. It was an actual document that confirmed who owned the property. It was cumbersome, got lost, got forged, etc and was replaced by a simple registration at the Land Registry. It's similar with our vehicle registration, with the ownership recorded at a central registry. As an update, our friend has contacted the seller where they originally bought the unit in Texas, and they will be sending her the 'required documentation' whatever that means. !

RE: The moon last night

Aside from the 'catch', it was a great shot . especially with what I thought was the first rays of sunlight catching Sinus Iridium up in the top left. That streak must be a satellite as I think it's too small to be an aircraft. Trying to gauge the scale.

RE: Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

The motorhome was bought used in Texas a few years ago, and brought back to Canada, and registered it here. They did all the documentation, at the border, when they imported into Canada. Our friend is not aware of receiving the title when they bought it, as this could have been looked after by her husband, who is no longer alive. It's so frustrating to wait so long for it to be sold, and now that it looks as though it will be, the dealership doesn't know what to do! It's also frustrating that she found out about this last Friday evening when all the 'usual contacts' are closing for the weekend. !

RE: Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

Thanks for all your help with this. I have been passing all this on to her and she will forward it on to the dealership. I thought after I posted this last night that someone must have the original title!

RE: Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

Thanks for the info noteven! I should have added that the Mhome was purchased used in the US a few years , from Texas. This should even simplify matters, I would think. ?

Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

A recently widowed friend of ours has consigned her Foretravel DP to a dealer in Phoenix for sale. We helped her move it down there at the end of last year. Vehicles in Canada, in our province anyway, do not have an actual title, but a registration with the province. The Mhome has now been sold, but the lack of a title now seems to be a real problem to the dealership and is suggesting that she go down there IN PERSON to complete the transaction. As this could entail one of us going down there with her, this would appear to be an expensive and unnecessary trip. Does any one out there have any experience with this? Posted here as more Canadians might see it. I did see somewhere that not all US states issue titles either?

RE: Apollo 11: The Complete Descent !

Can't believe it was 50 years ago. I was on a trip from the UK to see the launch from the Cape. I should dig out the schedule and see where we were on each day. We left Cardiff on July 10th for NYC, and had some time in Houston & New Orleans before the launch. We were supposed to spend the night before the launch at the Cape Kennedy Hilton, but right at the last minute POTUS Nixon and his crew commandeered the entire hotel and we had just a few hours sleep in Orlando before driving across overnight. We could see the lights on the Saturn V and 39a lit up almost as soon as we left Orlando. I was with a few guys that had to take the bus with all the luggage, and the driver offered to stop at a corner store at 3am to buy beer. Couldn't do that in Wales!

A very Happy 4th July to all our Southern neighbours! Can't wait to see those Sherman Tanks on parade! :)

RE: Baseball Weekend in London

They had to get more runs there as the Brits are used to cricket where hundreds of runs can be scored, even in the newer shortened games done over a few hours.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

Having lived in Western Canada for many years before taking my first trip to Quebec, I was really interested to see how my lack of French would work. I do speak a little French, the Parisian French I learnt at school, but I do speak it very badly, and with a Welsh accent! I experimented with my French and also pretended not to speak it at all. In every case, everyone was very accommodating and either switched to really good English or just muddled through with good humour. I had a great time there.

RE: Jeopardy records broken !

glad you learnt it good ;) ;) 'learnt' normal past tense of 'to learn' in UK, where I'm from, and from where the language we lent to you originated. :) Very interesting these variations of the English Language and how they are spoke!
