    Question: Did dusty get the orientation against making bribes and cooking smelly ethnic foods when he arrived in Canada? :evil:

    Oh and Hi Canada PIF :party:

    - best of luck with the new endeavor, it is definitely time that Canada had their own PIF section :)

    Oh the horror!! The bright lights, the dripping water faucet, the smelly feet, the crying and shouting .. Canada customs and immigration was a nightmare when I first got here. :D


    All my cooking is tailored to what my 4 year old can eat these days. I've tamed down a LOT of my recipes, so that she can enjoy ethnic foods too, and she's doing great with them so far. So, I'll take the 99 alarm curry recipe Wolfe, but can't promise I'll try it out any time soon. ;)

    I'm a tweaker, so you would be taking a risk. I like to take conventional recipes, and tweak them to my liking, or rather how I think they should be to begin with. ;)

    Trivia moment: Did you know that I started writing my first recipe book when I was 11?! It was fun reading it when I was in India last. :)

    P.S - No time to do that anymore but every now and again, I hit on something that I think is worth making notes of. The last two were my variations on a Kansas style BBQ Rub and a Turkey Supreme Stuffing. ;)

    I'm a tweaker too, only way to cook as far as I'm concerned.:drool: The only time I follow a recipe is if it's for baked goods, and I don't bake anymore.

    BTY....I'd try one of your recipes as long as it didn't use goat. I'm a Capricorn & that'd be like cannibalize :cry:

    I've heard Wolves like to cover extensive terrain in their wanderings, so you would be perfect to get the word around. Tag, you're it!!

    Sorry it took me so long to finally make my way over here and check this out. Great idea.

    This is really my only concern with the idea. It's my opinion that if someone wants something bad enough, and is getting it for free, they can certainly up the shipping costs. There's items I'll gladly pay forward, but if I'm already giving the item, I'm not going to ship it too. I see it this way. If the person who wants it, has to put up the shipping, they're a lot less likely to ask for something they don't need or really want. If they pay for shipping, they're probably going to use the item. Human nature what it is, this would eliminate respondants who might not use it but want it 'cos it's FREE. Sorry to see the dark side, but so it is.... But at the end of the day, I think the decision as to who pays shipping should be solely up to the giver. If the wanter offers to pay it and is serious, the giver can always say "they're obviously serious about wanting this item and will put it to good use, so I'm gonna be really benevolent and ship it gratis." Or, in the case of someone without much extra in their budget, they can do a good deed by giving their item and letting the wanter pick up the costs of getting it there.

    Also, I think the giver should be allowed to place some *reasonable* stipulations.... as in, "item must go to newbie starting out" or "this mod must go to vaper without any mods who wants to try them" or "this juice only for someone who hasn't yet tried it, not for folks who already know they love it".... Of course, it relies on the honor system, and I hope people would rise to that.

    Just my two cents. I'll be waiting to see what's decided though before I list anything.

    Oh yessssss..... not as a requirement perhaps, but definitely a strong suggestion. Always pictures. Always Always pictures lol

    When I've had time to get up to speed and have some questions answered, I'd be happy to make mention of this on the show I co-host at CVCN.ca. On my way to check out the actual pif threads now.....

    Thank you, Tyger! The PIF is a great idea and has a TON of potential specially within a smaller community such as ours. Any/all publicity that will help get this off the ground would be much appreciated. ;)
