Something to do with the dye in red smarties I heard and instead of trying to deal with the problem, McDonalds is just going to abolish the smartie McFlurry's. Caramel + Golden Oreo was my favourite combo.
WTF is wrong with the red die? Have I been poisoning myself. lol

A guy that use to work for me joined the armed services and went into communications/IT. I guess it would help if I could remember his name. Luis something. Spanish guy from Toronto. Kind of a thin guy. At least he was the last time I saw him.

They use cochineal beetles to colour them red. It's perfectly safe as far as I know and used in an effort to use as many natural ingredients as possible but vegetarians have a problem with it.

I don't know, that's just what I heard, don't know if it's true or not haha. But the same thought passed my mind. Everyone saves the red ones for last too.

Very respectable. I have a family member that worked with Autistic young adults for 10 years. Very challenging work. Good for you.

That's really cool. I'll definitely take your opinions seriously when it comes to evaluating a player's on ice performance, considering your experience.

edit: holy crap, you played for the Canadian Men's Soccer Team?!?

It pays well, but the benefits aren't what you'd expect.

Used to work at McDonald's for 2 years but decided to quit last week. Didn't feel like working anymore and going away to school in September anyways.

I'm 24 with two college diplomas (one in human resources the other in marketing) working part time at a wine shop lol. Windsor's economy is pretty so so right now, getting fed up and thinking of maybe trying to work for the army. Looks like the basic training would kick my ass though so I gotta step up my workouts lol. Anyone who's done the training in St. Jean any advice/info would be appreciated.

Only 8 games. I am actually better at soccer than hockey. When I was in Germany playing hockey my agent came to me and said that Team Canada was decimated with injuries and asked if I would like to play. I was playing on a German team. So I said yes. He said I would probably not see any play time and I got $800 per game, then another injury happened and I ended up playing 5 of the 8 games and scored 3 assists in a 4-4 game, and a goal against England. It was truly an amazing time of my life.

In those picks you can see me coaching the AAA high school in Moncton at that time to the Can-Am cup AKA the challenge cup to a national championship. That was the best year I ever had coaching. I have coached many teams to league and regional championships, but nothing beats winning a national championship.

ps. Sports has cost me 3 wives. hehe. I wouldn't change a thing.

I did it decades ago though my boot camp was in Borden, Ontario. I was in St. Jean attending the College Militaire Royale but even after boot camp you basically did another boot camp there under the Van Doo (22nd Regiment) as well as the senior students. I'm told it has been fairly pansified in the sense that they aren't even allowed to swear at you (which is completely stupid IMO). The biggest thing you need to understand is to do as you are told. Boot camp is about breaking individuals down and building teams. You will be amazed how guys you spend a couple weeks with end up being as good of friends as people you have been best pals with for 20 years. You need to understand that what they say to you and put you through is not personal. Most people who can't cut it either take things personally, find themselves lonely or haven't really ever faced being pushed (not counting of course those who get injured). Anyone who grew up on a farm or was held to adult standards while young should not have much problem with this. In terms of fitness, they now have 4 tests you have to pass (after acceptance): sit ups, push ups, hand squeeze and shuttle run (or beep test). To get in you need to do visual and medical tests, an aptitude test and an interview. Right now they aren't hiring for much as so many people are trying to get in and you may have to wait 2 years or more but if you want to try, get an application in ASAP. A good site to visit for lots of info is http://forums.army.ca/.

anyone struggling for work or undecided, i'd check out Fort Mcmurray. If you have a trade in any field you'll more than likely find a company that can use your skills. If you have one of the following you're a lock for 150k+ a year

Power engineer, heavy equipment operator, heavy equipment mechanic, pipefitter, welder, electrician, millwright.. etc etc i can go on.. NTD ( Non destructive testing) or an inspector type, Safety specialist..

it's a booming city with great opportunity for those that don't mind working. Highly recommended if in limbo. I came here at age 25 without a trade.. just a couple years university where i completed some electives and i did a 1 year power engineering course to obtain my 4th class ticket and now i can work for any major oilsand company up here. I've had offers from SHell i've turned down etc. Edmonton is only 4 hours away too. i watched the leafs win 4-3 in overtime last year with connolly scoring in OT from Lupul.. I was right there maybe 20 feet from the play.

and watching a few oilers game on my days off is entertaining as well.. so much talent any hockey fan would appreciate watching the oilers vs many great NHL teams like the caps, pens..

6 days on 6 days off is the schedule.

My brother is there as an ironworker. 14 days, 10hrs per, 7 off. The sweet part is that they fly him anywhere in Canada for his days off for free. But he always misses home so far.
