Let us know if you find anything regarding the widening of 9th Line at Steeles. I completely avoid this stretch during rush hour as the traffic is horrible, not that 14th Avenue is any better!

I'm also looking for script house numbers but can't stomach the price from myhousenumber.ca. It seems pricey for such a small, although nice, upgrade. Carlisle, which shop gave you that price?

The subcontracted painters that come to do repairs do such a lousy job that you'll have to repair the wall after they fix it. We had a painter repaint our exterior trim that had chipped...
