What a racket. This is why people need to pay attention to the news. I understand that the kiosk is going to take a cut, but $100 was trading at $100.60 the day I asked. Some poor consumer may have been ripped off at 13%.


In Sept. I took out $500 Canadian at ScotiaBank in Montreal and $470 was taken out of my B of A account. Bars / restaurants were only giving you $18 Canadian for $20 American though.

I'm sure Burlington Mall is swarming with finance-savvy globe trotters.

I did a gig in Lowell on Thursday. Stopped off at the food court for a bite on the way back to Brighton.

Had the spicy chicken sandwich. Not the best ever, but serviceable. Waffle fries were very good, and the sweet tea and peppermint shake were good for washing it all down.

Do you have a regular gig in Lowell? If so can you get Drooler into the bar if he's wearing sneakers?

I don't regularly work in Lowell. I did a private gig for Fred Church Insurance on Thursday (and overheard some of their company awards - so The Officeesque.)

I've filled in at Old Court a few times, and I'm certain they (or anywhere I work) would admit a patron in sneakers.

Wait, you got off the highway coming home from Lowell to go to the food court at a mall?

I really wanted to try Chick-fil-A. Last time I was in there, it was a Sunday. :lol:

Why would anybody go out of their way to try a Chic-fil-A?

The mall's right off 128. I wouldn't call that "out of my way."
