21:02 Squirrels Running Inside The Soffits (161 Words) »PEIinfo.ca | New Topics
First day of spring so I guess the squirrels woke up and decided to play. We could hear them running inside the soffits and chittering away. I sent for estimates to see what it would cost to get rid of them. Some suggestions were to put moth balls in plastic baggies and then poke holes in them and spread them around the attic. Another one was to spray fox urine on cotton balls and spread them around. One other suggestion was to buy a high frequency electronic device and install it in the attic.

Has anybody ever had these cute but dangerous critters inside their house? I would like any feedback on what works and how to keep them out. We don't know where they are getting inside the house. There were two of them running around our deck today which is on the second level of the house.

Thanks....

19:00 Kiss and Cry at Monday, March 20, 2017 at 7:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 5 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance (Language May Offend, Mature Theme)
Runs: 92 minutes
Director: Sean Cisterna
Country: Canada
Starring: Sarah Fisher, Luke Bilyk, Chantal Kreviazuk

“Kiss and Cry is a lovely Canadian companion to Josh Boone’s crowd-pleaser The Fault in Our Stars. Right away, there are undeniable thematic and romantic connections since both films feature an ambitious young woman facing cancer while wrapped up in a tender relationship. Underneath those obvious links, however, is affectionate characterization. A poignant delicacy that allows the audience to care for the characters and offer our attention as support... By watching Kiss and Cry, movie goers catch a more sentimental side to director Sean Cisterna... Kiss and Cry features the filmmaker in a sentimental zone that appears natural for him... giving the real-life story of figure skater Carley Allison a glow of warm comfort and heartfelt sympathy. The cuter moments involving Carley joking around with friends and sassing her boyfriend are infectiously happy. A collection of spirited performances also drive Kiss and Cry, including supporting roles from Brittany Bristow, Julia Tomasone, Sergio Di Zio, and Chantal Kreviazuk as Carley’s supportive family, along with a memorable turn by Naomi Snieckus. The film is undoubtedly stolen by Sarah Fisher though. The former Degrassi actress is an absolute revelation as Carley Allison, commanding the screen whenever music leads her soul. Kiss and Cry isn’t just a solid romantic recommendation for Valentine’s Day. It’s an all-around great film.” - Addison Wylie, Wylie Writes

Cinematographer Becky Parsons will be here for the 7:00 screening Sunday March 19th, there will be a q & a after the show.

Canadian Screen Award Winner for Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress.


“What’s not to love about Canuck hipster Bruce McDonald’s return to a genre he’s a master of - the indie road movie with a distinctly Canadian flavour and endearingly peculiar characters. Reuniting with screenwriter Daniel MacIvor, McDonald has crafted a slight but quirky and ironic comedy-drama. Shot in gorgeous black-and-white by Becky Parsons, it chronicles the journey of Kit and Alice, two Novia Scotia teenagers who hitchhike from Antigonish to Sydney during the summer of 1976 while the American Bicentennial is being celebrated stateside. Although this is a modest achievement, boomers in particular should get a real kick out of its authentic period costumes, furnishings, pop-culture references and flashbacks, including a score rife with nostalgia-inducing rock gems. The film’s Maritime beauty is offset by period hits from musicians such as Edward Bear, the Stampeders and Murray McLauchlan, whose Down by the Henry Moore is a song you won’t be able to get out of your head after the closing credits roll... What stands out most, however, are the naturalistic performances, particularly from Julia Sarah Stone, a fresh and compelling new talent with retro flair, and Molly Parker, who infuses her over-the-top portrayal of Kit’s dysfunctional mother with poignancy. “ - Michael D. Reid, The Victoria Times Colonist

15:02 Steve's snow removal (186 Words) »PEIinfo.ca | New Topics
Does anyone personally know the owner or operators of Steve's snow removal in Charlottetown?

Every winter it's the same issue. After the first snowfall, they clear my neighbors snow, blow it in my front yard. I call them, explain that my neighbors garbage is often piled in their driveway, and it has been blown in my yard in the past. As well as snow and ice pellets hitting my house. And on the odd occasion the snow plow operator will get some grass and mud from the edge of their driveway. My neighbors are usually UPEI students who may stay for just 1 or 2 winters, but the garbage in the driveway pattern stays the same. ":D"

So the first phone call usually works for a bit, but by the end of the winter they are back to blowing it in my yard. Every winter.

I hate "naming and shaming" on the internet.....but this issue has been going on for at least 9 years!...
