How many people took today off to make it a 4-day weekend? If you’re allowed to do it, why not? Just don’t be dishonest and call in sick if you’re not. We’re heading into the weekend that has been the traditional time to plant the garden and the flower pots and for those who have lake cabins to drive up and get them ready. The golf courses should be busy and I’ll be hauling our clubs out of the garden shed to clean them up and perhaps even sneak in a round by Monday night.
The Sports Poll on Sasknow.ca on Tuesday brought up a Rider name from the recent past, John Chick. The question was, “Considering he just signed a contract extension with Hamilton, are you still sore Chick is no longer a Rider”? As of this writing, 9% of respondents weren’t sure because Chick is 34 years old and his “best before” date is quickly coming up but he would still be an asset to the Riders. 24% said no, Rider Nation needs to look ahead, not back.
FYI (for your information), today I’m going to talk millennial. TBH (to be honest) it’s all about abbreviations and acronyms. This may be TMI (too much information) and a CWOT (complete waste of time) but BTAIM (be that as it may) feel free to CC (carbon copy) your BFF (best friend for life). IDK (I don’t know) why I chose this subject but from my POV (Point of view) and IMO (in my opinion) we need to know modern acronyms and abbreviations so we can communicate with PPL (people) better IRL (in real life) on whatever SMP (social media platform) we choose.
I don’t have a generic Air Miles card that I think can be used for any airline as well as merchandise. Correct me if I’m wrong but I haven’t studied up on it. I have had Aeroplan for years that is good for Air Canada and its partners flights as well as having a catalogue of merchandise rewards but I heard last week that Air Canada is going to be dropping Aeroplan in June, 2020 and launching its own loyalty rewards program.
As we begin another week of work and school in Saskatoon it’s a good time to remind ourselves that construction season is now in full swing and when driving we need to watch for signs. Speeding ticket fines triple in construction zones and start at $300. One day last week the police went looking for speeders in the construction zone at the intersection of Boychuk Drive and highway 16. In only two hours, 3pm-5pm, they handed out 50 tickets totalling $18,000 in fines.
