“Tattoos are art for the body and also a way of expressing oneself. I’ve always loved wild flowers so I got a few on my arm. (Orchid, Hibiscus ,some tropical Hawaiian)  I also have Jasmine flowers on my ankle. If you’re wondering if it hurts the answer yes indeed!”

“My love of cigars started about 20 years ago.  I just started my new position at CAE and I was the youngest person in the department.  I knew my boss smoked cigars so when he asked me if I did, I said of course…love them, can’t get enough.  One day he took me out with another co-worker and he busted out the cigars.  Luckily I read up on how to light it and hold it or I was in big trouble.  I have to say, it was love at first puff lol.  Right now  I’m smoking Aurora Robusto from DR”

20 Adult Truths

1. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest or Google Maps really need to start their directions on # 5.
I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind-of tired.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

17. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

Trinet Transportation – Kidney Foundation Fundraiser


“Kidney health and improved lives for all people affected by kidney disease.”

For nearly 50 years, this vision has guided The Kidney Foundation of Canada to be a collaborative, inventive and focused leader in the development of programs, services, research opportunities and awareness campaigns that have had a positive impact on the millions of Canadians living with, or at risk of developing, kidney disease.

Some 2.6 million Canadians have, or are at risk of kidney disease. Each day, 16 people learn that their kidneys have failed. Over the last 20 years the number of Canadians treated for kidney disease has tripled.

Since its creation, The Kidney Foundation of Canada has helped to pave the way to better treatments and care. To date, the Foundation has contributed over 100 million dollars to research projects that extend, improve and save lives.

Until the 1960s, being diagnosed with renal failure was a virtual death sentence. Only a small number of patients had access to dialysis and transplants were in their infancy. Nowadays, dialysis has become available to all, and kidney transplants have an 85 to 95% success rate.

That is just some of the reasons why Trinet Transportation is getting involved in this cause and that we’re doing our part. We want to raise $1500.00 and we need your help to attain this objective.

Trinet will donate a portion of all express shipments to the Kidney Foundation.  For every small package and envelope shipped the Kidney foundation will help make someone’s day “a little easier”.

The Foundation depends entirely on the generosity of the public to finance its programs all aimed at improving the quality of life of those who live daily with the harsh reality of kidney disease.

We imagine a future without kidney failure. We invite you to join us in the challenge of realizing that future. I thank you in advance for your generosity in making kidney patients lives “a little easier”.




  1. Big rack of Beef (or Pork) Ribs
  2. Lotsa Sea Salt
  3. Lotsa Lemon sliced in four

Cooking Instructions:


After setting up your concrete brick barbecue in the middle of your yard, start your fire using anything that will burn then eventually put in some logs you “borrowed“ from your neighbour while he was away. Let it smoke up the neighborhood for about 2 hours.


Place the rack of ribs gently on the grill, this is a bit trickier than it sounds because you must do it with your eyes closed (because there is so much smoke coming from the wet logs you took…borrowed from your neighbour).  If you are a first time, I would suggest you keep a large jug of water close by, in case of burns, smoke in the eyes, your property catching fire etc…

Once the ribs are in place- squish your lemon slices until the ribs, your hands, your pants and your dog are completely covered in citrus juice. Grab the water jug and pour ½ jug into your eyes (that smoke thing).

Now put as much Sea salt as possible – DO NOT BE SHY- this is very important because scientists have proven that the more salt you consume the thirstier you get. The thirstier you get the more beer you drink.  The more beer you drink the hungrier you get and the hungrier you get the less important taste becomes. So I repeat-PUT A LOT OF SALT.

Throw in 2 medium size logs.

Repeat the Lotsa lemon and Lotsa salt thing until you can’t take the smoke anymore. This may vary depending on how hungry you are, how drunk you are and how many logs you stole (borrowed) from the neighbour.

No need to set the table, you can eat these ribs anywhere.

These ribs have brought me and my family hours (A lot of hours) of fun, laughs, screams, complaints, fines and feuds. I hope it brings you much of the same.
