    You're welcome to come over to my place for beef chili with regular weevil rice. Still got 2 serves of that left.
    I'm storing all my flour, sugar, lentils, rice in the fridge now and might move my pasta there too. The problem is that I don't have room in the freezer to freeze-kill any bugs that were in packets at time of purchase.

    It's even funnier to me that of the TV shows that I've been watching recently, 2 of them have had episodes with bio-warfare involving bugs crawling out of people's mouths. Lucky I don't get put off food very easily

    Great time for a vegemite Aussie bug repellant/trap test science project

    So here's my test setup suggestions based on if they can swim or not... feel free to use your MacGyver engineering skills if you want to alter it.

    Fill a bowl or container right to the edge (so it's easy for them to get out) of whatever "critter of the moment" flavored food you have (weevils seem like an Aussie favorite )

    If they can't swim:
    Put food container in larger bowl filled with water
    If they can swim
    Some sticky tape or anything that will prevent them for heading elsewhere

    Put one blob of vegemite on top in centre of the food

    If they hate it they will run for cover and wind up in the water or get stuck in the sticky tape etc. Conclusion: Great bug repellant

    if thet love it they will all head for it and get stuck in it. Take blob before they eat their way out, put in sealed bag and toss in trash. Conclusion great bug trap & food sanitizer

    Maybe I can sacrifice a small spoonful for science. Hopefully it will be a long time before I find more bugs to experiment on.

    Bonus 1: Got a laugh from an email exchange.
    Person A: "... Are you [body corporate committee members] happy to approve [a minor building work thing]?"
    Me: "Yes I'd be happy to approve it."
    Person B: "I am more than happy to approve it."

    What I want to reply: "Well it's not a competition."


    Bonus 2: If I can't sleep tonight I can blame the loud dragging-a-giant-metal-thing-over-the-road noise the road works guys at making, rather than my circling thoughts.

    Edit: Now it sounds like a massive vacuum cleaner. They should've got a roomba. (tea in cup)

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    ** Too long to edit feel free to read, skim or simply ignore

    1 - Called BellMTS and whined a bit. I actually buttered it on pretty thick but all in honesty. I made a living installing for MTS before going on disability and up until Bell bought them out things were somewhat OK. I'd put a call in and get an extra loyalty bonus quite regularly. They increased my low/high speed rural service last year and again this year for an extra 15%. I'm tired of subsidizing the BellMTS vs Shaw city price wars. Before stumblng on Roger's promo yersterday I was actually searching thinking about cutting the internet off and switching to Telus for 6GB for 55$ a month unlimited canada calling etc. The real difficulty if I do that is no more streaming and having to look at going to a lean linux OS since Win10 sucks data just running idle. It also means no more watching my Montreal Canadiens online and not on satellite TV either as doing the math 55$ a month to watch about 20 saturday night games and playoffs (if they make it there) via Satellite TV is getting rediculous and although I put shaw direct on seasonal break I'm considering cancelling it completely. The rest of the games are only available out of market through Rogers NHL French package online and as of last year that's another 63$ to watch about 60 games plus the internet cost. Of course you can pay 200$ plus tax for their full package but the Saturday TV games are blacked out anyway.

    2 - 2nd lady I was transferred to I explained to her I was at the wall and was seriously looking at taking roger's offer and terminating my cell and internet services. My loyalty to MTS started dying since the name Bell was added to it. Before they bought MTS Manitoba had the greatest prices in Canada from all carriers because MTS was pushing the charge and they had no choice but to follow to compete. She finally offered me an extra 30$ loyalty discount for 6 months. for what I have now. So instead of 132 and change it'll be about 98 and change. So I accepted the offer for now.

    3 - My Problem is Bell is matching the promo Rogers is offfering till the end of the month. Rogers promo runs till end of July. Telus is offering 10+5 till end of month. So I took the promo but that doesn't help much when the discount ends. And if the promos are out I missed out on that... So I have a month or so to decide what to do. Do I cut the internet and just use the cell data and forget about hockey completely to save some money or just blow it to watch the one thing I Loved. But the cost to watch is starting to klll the thrill of watching the games. I have an unlocked Iphone and am not on a term plan since Aug 2015 so I can switch carriers whenever I wish.

    Weird, got carried away (AGAIN) sounds more like 3 confused rants... But if I stick with what I got I'm saving over 200$ over the next 6 months so technically a good positive.

    Bonus: Caught a f***en spider again this time on the wall right beside my bed and terminated it promptly.
