I like this idea a lot.
We believe in the citizens of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand benefiting from a freedom of movement initiative, advancing the ever growing cultural, historical, economical and political connections that we already share through our Commonwealth ties. Because of the unique relationship and socio-economic bonds that the U.K, Canada, Australia and New Zealand share, we believe that each country can benefit from a free movemen...

That's one helluva muzzle flash.  I can't see how an RCL would be much worse.

Excellent practice. My family has been using Dr. McKay for many years. Dr. McKay and the hygienists consistently explain what they are doing and why. They all have what is best described as a "light touch" which makes being in the chair, a generally unpleasant experience, bearable.

I won't blame the waitress for the failings of the kitchen. She was friendly and doing the best she could under the circumstances. No evidence of any understanding of southwestern cooking. One meal from our party was forgotten - they comped it but still not easy to forgive. Another meal was sent back as inedible. Two margaritas had clumps of salt in the bottom of the glass and the guacamole had a huge chunk of avocado in it that the masher had missed. Partway through the meal, the soundtrack switched to loud arabic music. Nothing to be offended about but odd. We found out why in leaving The Twisted Lizard doubles as shisha (hookah) bar. Management really needs to drop the tex mex theme which they clearly do not understand and move on to middle eastern cuisine. Not worth your time or money.

Excellent service and great product lines. I use them for trailer accessories and electrics. If you stay away from the specialist marine grade items, they can be a third of what you would pay at a large Canadian camping and Tire store.

Went there for a co-workers going away lunch. Not wanting to deal with the mess of the ribs since we had to go back to the office, I ordered the rib sandwich. I can't really rate the food as poor but neither was it good. The sandwich came on a fresh if very chewy ciabatta bun. The smallish portion of shredded rib meat filling was lukewarm and was simply sweet without any spice, smokiness, tomato or other flavour I would associate with ribs. The meat was topped with some uninspiring sprouts and there may have been a thin onion ring tucked in there somewhere. The sandwich came on a large plate with a very generous portion of fries. The fries were ultra thin commercial cut shoestrings and again were lukewarm. A smaller portion of wedge fries would have been more appropriate. A couple of sprinkles of some sort of spiced salt were scattered over the fries - frankly a good dose of this mix on the sandwich would have improved things. The service was good, not stellar as the drinks refill order had to be placed twice - then we got two refills. I wouldn't go back intentionally because Baton Rouge is simply mediocre. If it was the only restaurant at an airport hotel, I might give the ribs a shot.

Reasonably priced, good shipping and Canadian or Canadien if you prefer. The economy PLA runs well with little tweaking required.

Our favourite Thai restaurant. As noted in other reviews, it is small, can be noisy and a reservation is not a bad idea. The food is consistently excellent but a word of warning, when the menu says hot, it is indeed hot. Unlike many places, the spicing has not been downgraded for a western palate. Even if you like it spicy, you might want to dial it back a notch on your first visit. Highly recommended.

I visited Foundry Miniatures in September 2012. This is a working warehouse operation and not a retail store so concrete floors and steel racks are the order of the day. But what a war gaming feast it is! One of the ranges I had come for, Victoriana, was 50% off. The only thing stopping me from spending more was my baggage allowance. I was even given a couple of freebies. Some figures had moderate flash but I expect these were older moulds as the rest were very clean. Recommended
