    At the time that ours broke into a million pieces, the large canvass umbrella was fully open and inserted in the centre hole, and secured in the heavy metal base underneath.
    The winds were crazy strong on Tuesday, but DH and I both forgot the umbrella was erected.

    Anyhow, from down in the basement we both heard something fall....a curious sound. We figured one of the cats knocked something down.
    It wasn't until DH ventured out back and saw the toppled umbrella laying on its side, still half way in the centre hole that he cringed.
    Meh?? I feel lucky we were not sitting at it when that happened! I have watched a few You Tube videos of these tempered glass tables shattering/exploding all on their own. So even though the wind and umbrella may have caused this, it may have been only a matter of time.
    There was a really windy day in June. I just happened to walk into the kitchen and I saw my umbrella go straight up and land on the roof. Our roof is slanted so it didn't stay there. I told DH so he went outside and chased the umbrella to bring it back home.

    It's BAAAAAAACK!
    This annoying loud hum, rattle coming from my computer tower. I thought if I banged it very hard with my fist on the top it would subside, but no luck.

    That happened to me, unfortunately the noise got louder and eventually my tower died. Could be your hard drive or fan is going. Back up your stuff now, I didn't. And keep your fingers crossed.

    yep! @barbis9 it's the fan ( says my " IT guy "....lol. aka DH ) he's going out Saturday to get a me a new one and he'll install it himself.
    So weird though....the sound is gone atm....Completely gone!
    Last night it was gone for a few hours and then earlier this a.m. when i turned it on it started up again.

    We have a beautiful patio cushion set ( 6 pieces, over a year old now ) that had removal covers on 4 and have been laundered least 3 times. yesterday I noticed an unusual terrible stain ( dirt?, liquid? ) on one of the back cushions which does not have a zippered removal option.
    The usual attempts at wiping it off were not working, we think a racoon climbed up onto the furniture and had its' way with it??
    So what the heck, I tossed it into a gentle wash cycle.....what could possibly go wrong?

    Insert me crying and screaming loudly.

    I'm baffled as to what chewed the corner in the cover in the washer? So I investigated a possible replacement purchase from Wayfair. nope! They have none. I was forced to fashion a repair with hand sewing.

    I am not 100% pleased BUT it'll have to do. I'll flip the ugliest side to the back when I place it back on the chair next summer. Sigh....we can never have nice things.

    OMG! I'm so stupid I thought you just turned it upside down and put it in a trash bag to toss. The repair is excellent. I admire anyone who can sew. Good job! You: 1, Raccoon: 0

    When for months in 2020, cremation packages could be had for $2495, just $5 less than the $2500 CPP death benefit.
    Saw in last weekend's paper that one cremation service provider has increased package cost to just over $2600. Sigh #HamOnt.

    Totally agree.

    I would be POíd myself. Someone(s) have been greedy.

    You need to complain to management. My local store use to have them in that space between the main entrance and the store entrance...where the trollyís are. People could walk in, grab an entire pad and then leave. No one that worked there knew a thing.
    I b!7ched about placement, and they moved it 5 ft, other side of the door and in front of the hot food section where there were employees around and it looked like people lost their 5 finger discount nerve.

    when people rake leaves to the sidewalk, so the wind can blow it to their neighbours, or the sewers so basements can get water in them
    we just finished mowing other people's leaves that blew onto our property

    I feel your pain @walkonby .....2 new rear shocks, 1 shock mount, 2 rear rotars and brake pads not to mention paint falling off the rear of my car which doesn't even have 100,000 km on it!!! ( shocks are the 3rd set and this is a known problem with Ford Fusions) I can see why Ford quit making this model!!!

    Same issue with my Ford Explorer - twice the rear suspension has had issues in 2 years.
