Watching Modern Family "Clean for a Day". Jay has signed up for flying lessons. He says: "You know that maneuver where you fly straight up until you stall - and then pull out of the dive?" [Nose up and stall one wing.]
Instructor: "Uh-huh."
Jay: "Can we do that today?"
Instructor: "Nope."

I took a few flying lessons back in the 90's, and we totally did that on Lesson #2. :-) I would harass him into letting me do it over and over. There's nothing like the feeling that you're in a cartoon plane heading straight down, slowly rotating, with that whining engine sound getting louder. (He did tell me that he'd get fired if we did it one more time.) :D

This is almost criminal, in a 0.5% vacancy rate market for renters. (And it's in my general neighbourhood, it's 635 Battery St., Victoria, BC.) The law says no more than a 4% rent increase each year starting 2018. Yet landlord Rick Kallstrom is jacking the rents 38% and forcing the tenants to sign a non-disclosure agreement, or face eviction. And he found a legal loophole.

This landlord, Rick Kallstrom, says the evictions are "to house a family member", which is allowed in BC. So Kallstrom is just trying to accommodate his huge family? He also said on camera, "I'm a business man, not a social worker. I want to make more money. I think rent control is wrong." Incidentally, he's with DFH Real Estate in Victoria, BC.

When I was little, my father produced a monthly boating magazine. My twin sister and I were often the models for his article photo illustrations. This is one ad from that magazine in 1965. That's me (on the right, silly). Yep, ads were absolutely that sexist in the 1960s. :D

The older I get, the more I realize that integrity is everything. And without it, you are rudderless.
