It may seem like a cliché but I love the seasonal oranges and reds that is fall in all its glory, especially when I catch those colours in a spectacular fall sunset. A perfect few moments before the dark comes.
It's getting close to Halloween now and it feels like it - the frost has finished off even the hardiest summer flowers, the leaves are gone from the trees and there is a chill in the air that carries the promise of snow. Another winter is almost upon us but not even nature feels a need to rush into it - All good things in their time.

We celebrated Duncan's 30th Birthday today at the traditional location. This is birthday number six at Hooters and peeps are starting to refer to it as an "annual pilgrimage." I personally enjoyed all of the interesting concoctions that people came up for Duncan to drink - including something called the Boiler Maker. Yum!

The National Do Not Call List is now operational. Once you have registered your number(s) on the National Do Not Call List most Telemarketers will stop calling you. There are some notable exceptions which you can read about here.
There is a 30 day grace period for Telemarketers to update their lists and during this time you might get some calls. When this happens you can ask to be placed on the company's own Do Not Call list - however I have noticed they don't always comply (I have asked Telus three times not to call me anymore) and then you might actually have to file a complaint against them.
Now if only we could have a National Do Not Email list!
