This item is ALWAYS out of stock everywhere, it’s the Nintendo Wii Fit balance board and serves as the foundation for a variety of interactive exercise (and fun games) including yoga, dancing, skiing, surfing, snowboarding.

I just spotted it AVAILABLE in stock at Amazon Canada for $89.99 with free shipping… won’t last long…

For all those looking for a great natural Christmas tree at a great price, I can heartily recommend Ikea… yes, Ikea and NO, no allen key is required to install this lovely natural pine tree. Ikea owns their own Christmas tree farms and they are managed – that is, all trees sold are replaced.

Zachary, Tristan and I were at the Boucherville Ikea around 840 EST this morning and there were MANY trees there (and few cars in the parking lot) … they had received a fresh batch that morning (or night before)… you have to go in to pay for the tree and get your $20 off $75 coupon.

That’s right – all their trees are $20 – and you get a $20 off $75 Ikea coupon valid as of January 2nd until March 2009. Well worth it.

We hauled the tree back (after having $1.00 and $1.99 breakfast plates with eggs, croissant, potatoes, sausage, bacon and/or mini-pancakes stuffed with apples) to the house. Later on, Zachary assisted in sawing off the 1/2 “ bit of the trunk and we all aligned and screwed it in the house upstairs. Their help was essential given that I’m still severely limping around following the surgery.

Now it smells lovely in here, and tomorrow we decorate it!

Pics forthcoming…

Hmm, like someone told me a few minutes ago, I may be known as the Master Parker when it comes to finding choice places to park a car, but…..

Lesley was just at an IT event (mainly marketing stuff, not really technical) *but*…. went up when her name was called during drawings and….

John Lennon on the box… and on the rear…. 16GB iPod Touch. Yes, a 16GB 2nd generation iPod touch mp3 (and video, of course) player ….. OK, not sure it it’s black or white but regardless… pretty seriously nice prize booty/swag, considering it’s $280 US + taxes at BestBuy and about $329 in Canada….

Apple iPod touch 16GB* MP3 Player - Black

The irony is that we were both at the Apple Store on St. Catherine street near Crescent (impressive typical glass and minimalist store) admiring the iPhones, Mac AIR, and in particular she was checking out the iPod Nanos (pouah! nano schmano)….

Amazing prize, but sigh…. I’m happy with my HTC Touch device (ok, I don’t even have a 4GB storage card for it yet, and nothing beats the touch interface of Apple iPods or iPhones… so now sour grapes from me. :) 🙂

Well, eHarmony is having another FCW “free communications weekend” starting on Friday, August 29th and running through the weekend until September 1st. Basically what this means is that you can send personalized messages to other eHarmony members. I strongly suggest you register at eHarmony and complete the eHarmony profile questionnaire on either eHarmony USA or eHarmony Canada *in advance of the free weekend* because it does take some time to do, and there are parts of the profile that may require approval by eHarmony moderators or staff.

If you’ve read my previous reviews of eHarmony, you’ll know that they have one of the most complete (300+ questions!) profiling systems in the dating world… also, the FCW doesn’t allow you to see photos of other members… so get in touch with the prospective member and ask them to send you a pic or two by email.

A quick note for anyone considering signing up for one of the larger online dating sites; eHarmony had a discount promo code that offers 20% off their 6 month subscription which works on both eHarmony USA and eHarmony Canada. Don’t become a registered eHarmony subscriber without using the CJSUMMERPROMOAABB discount code when you register.

It’s good for all eHarmony registration in August and September… maintenant, si eHarmony était disponible en français…
