Tougher labeling requirements for nosodes in Canada.
An outright ban would have been better, but at least this is a step in the right direction.

Just require them to be labeled "if you're very lucky it's only a placebo."

Having trouble with +Blogger on +Google Chrome on OSX Yosemite.

I use a custom theme called BMAG (

As of yesterday, my blog worked fine. Today, when I posted a new item, something went hinky:
1. If I try to visit the blog (, it never finishes loading.
2. If I have the blog editor open in one tab, and the blog itself open in another, the blog never finishes loading and when I close the blog tab, the editor tab craps out (the "Oh Snap!" page).

I tried restarting Chrome; no help.

Even weirder, everything works fine in Safari.

Anyone got any ideas?
(I'm already looking into whether there's been an update or something to the BMAG theme.)

"Smart" windows could save energy while also helping create more livable, pleasant spaces.
I am worried, though, about the life cycle impact of the manufacture (and possibly disposal) of this stuff.

Teeny weeny restaurant; maybe a dozen tables. Often full up; make sure you make a reservation. The food is very good, but the menu was, I thought, limited and invariant. The service is a bit too posh for my liking, but all the staff (including the owner) is discreet, attentive, and professional.

Very modestly priced Pho. We started with a serving of chicken spring rolls, which were quite good; just the right amount of flavour. I had the chicken Pad Thai, which was a bit bland and greasy. Good portion size. My wife had a beef Pho. Too much gristle & tendon for our Italian sensibilities, but lots of fresh veggies and a nice broth. The service was fast and attentive without being sycophantic. The place itself was clean and well-lit. We were lucky to get a booth because they had these rather odd chairs that I'm not sure would be that comfortable.

Great food. But the service is so atrocious you'll barely be able to keep the food down. Example: We had a reservation for 13 at 4pm. It was my father-in-law's birthday. We were on time. We brought our own cake. They didn't take our order till 4:30 - not even the drinks! We then waited 40 minutes for the food, even though the place was only 1/2 full. It took them 10 minutes to just bring the food to the table. We were ravenous by then and were all finished in 10 minutes. We had to wait another 30 minutes for them to bring the cake and coffee. They didn't bring plates or cutlery for the cake, and we had to tell them that they had to cut and serve the cake. Another 15 minutes pass. And they look at you like it's your fault! The people who work at Desserts Plus are useless bags of skin. They are navel lint. They are pustules on the buttocks of the universe. I can imagine a masochist might enjoy Desserts Plus, but no one else will.

Barely noticeable from the street, this great spot for thai food is one of the most reliable restaurants I know. Consistency of cooking and service are excellent. The food is not especially overpowering in flavour, and ranges from truly mild to not-insanely-spicy. I have had about half the items on their menu and never once been disappointed. The decor is a pastiche of a dozen different styles, but who cares? The food rocks. The staff is always helpful and kind, though sometimes a lack of experience and training is evident. Nonetheless, their hearts invariably are in the right place. Highly recommended.

Simple, inexpensive setting rather like a family restaurant but with a touch of creative chic. Like Queen St W used to be in the 80s. Great food; again simple at heart but everything has a special subtle twist. Very reasonable prices. Genuine, helpful, attentive staff. Perhaps a bit too attentive, but better too much than too little. Will definitely go back there.

Shoppers is a convenience store for the nouveau riche. They have all the same crap, but with higher prices. And they always change a dispensing fee for medicines at the pharmacy. Smaller pharmacies don't charge those fees. Shoppers basically takes advantage of you when you're sick, and I find that despicable.
