Remember the Buller Burger ?

This was a while back, but I still get hungry looking at it :) Buchans, NL is the only place that serves them...see last photo below. Why is it that sin, even the sin of Gluttony is so attractive? One of the Seven Deadly Sins no less. Imagine my giddy delight when after ordering the one pound hamburger patty, the waitress looked at me with a twinkle in her eye and uttered that classic query; "Would you like fries with that"? Why yes I would. Do you have wedge fries ?
Thankfully, Buchans is a considerable detour from the TCH, so I have not been back. However, a friend "smuggled" a bun back from there, prompting the homemade version below. God always provides an avenue of escape however, and an "ordained" if not timely visit from the local clergy resulted a ceremonial "quartering" of said burger...we didn't quite fill twelve baskets with the leftovers, but I'm not hungry either :)

$47.99 GPS !!!

Hard to beat this deal; Curtis GPS receiver from Canadian Tire for $47.99 !!
Don't let the price fool you. Underneath, this is a Windows CE 5.0 Pocket PC with an SD card slot. Plays MP3s, videos, etc. Comes with USB cable, car and house power cords. Read all about it here. Pretty good maps, and you can get at the operating system easily. It's not on CT's Website, but call and ask them if they have any 099-1981-04 in stock.

Simply put, What is wrong with me ??

...saw this beast on Kijiji, and I want it so bad. The year is not mentioned but I'm guessing '75 or so. Luckily, there's no price given, so that will help me avoid the gnawing desire. Why would anyone buy a 30-odd year old RV? What's my problem ???
