My husband has used NHL.com Game Centre Live for the past few years and loves it. It's $99 a year and you can choose the broadcast city- so he watches Oilers games with the Edmonton Oiler announcers, for example. During the playoffs it's great because you can choose to blackout the scores prior to watching pre-recorded games. So he can watch games live or recorded during the regular season and the play offs . It's a pretty good set up actually and he usually watches his beloved Oilers in the morning while he has a coffee. Oh, and if you choose to watch the game recorded (not live) you can watch a shorter version where they just show you the best parts. Kind of like watching an extended version of the highlights you'd see on TSN but better.

They way most posters here refer to their husbands just says it all. You clearly don't see them as your equals! "Of course most men can fend for themselves, i think they enjoy the freedom of takeaways" "I also stock the cupboards with extra staples so that when he goes shopping it's just a quick stop" "He does do some of his own washing" Why are you all so grateful to your husbands for working and bringing in the money? Do you not feel that being at home looking after the kids, you contribute equally to the family? Why do you feel the need to provide a service to your husband when you're not even at home? Is that not an opportunity for you to relax (since you're on holiday) and your husband to have some peace and quiet and look after himself? Perhaps its my feminist roots but I get a real itchy, annoying feeling reading through your posts. Why are women still so subservient to men, in this day and age? Why do you feel the need to mollycoddle them and treat them like adult babies? I have feminist values too but they don't preclude me from enjoying being looked after and looked out for by my husband. I enjoy looking after him too. It's not a bad thing looking after the people we love. It's not a bad thing being grateful to each other for the things we individually bring to each other. I am a feminist but I retain the right to: - Feel snuggly and warm when hubby goes and fills my car for me on a frosty winter morning while I do a nice fry-up (UK) - Love him even though he can't iron and bask in the glory that he loves me even though I don't know how to change the tyre on a car etc etc Enjoy the differences and don't think being a feminist means that a woman wanting to do anything for a man is only ever just out of obligation or subserviance. EXACTLY. It's Love. It's not obligation, subserviency, or anything of the sort. It's that I love him for all he does and he loves me for the same. When I'm gone it's about the small reminders that we're thinking about him and miss him. That's all.

I generally do most of the cooking, but only out of necessity. My husband enjoys cooking and is awesome at it so I don't worry about that when he's alone in the summer. That being said, he works long hours and it does suck to come home to an empty house and the knowledge that your wife and kid are on the other side of the world. So, I do leave him some frozen homemade soups and casseroles, plus some banana muffins etc that he can pull out a couple at a time. I also buy extra meat and fish, and I portion them into single servings before freezing so that when he does want to cook he doesn't need to thaw too much. I also stock the cupboards with extra staples so that when he goes shopping it's just a quick stop on the way home for a few perishables. I think he appreciates it just as I appreciate how hard he works for us. I couldn't care less if he cleans or not. And I never iron anyways, he does his own. But the one thing I do do that he loves every summer is leave small treats around the house. Granted after 10 years here the hiding spots have had to be more creative. I keep a list of what's hidden where and every so often while skyping, or when he checks his bbm in the morning I set him off to find a treat. Chocolate, bags of spiced or flavoured nuts, gourmet chips, a pez dispenser with candy, gum... It's just fun and there's always a little note to go along with it. <em>edited by moose on 18/04/2014</em>

It has the same signage as winners in canada but the merchandise is slightly different. Great place to go though for winter gear; awesome prices on great brand name coats and ski pants etc. I'm pretty sure they also have some flags and other Canadian gear too.

We have a large patch of mould, and what may be black mould, under our sink where the pipes had been slowly leaking over time. I'm researching companies that can come clean it as I've read that it can be dangerous to simply wipe away on your own. Does anyone have any recommendations? I found smashing clean.com… Any others?

Last time I was at Al Ain zoo a few years ago there wasn't much to choose from for lunch. I noticed that on their web site now they mention a new refurbished restaurant that has salads etc. Is it any good? We don't mind packing a lunch but if the food there is good we may save ourselves from having to carry food around. Has anyone been recently? Thanks.

I've never been asked here, even though I've heard many times about needing a letter. However I get asked in Canada (I am Canadian as is child and husband). I've always had a letter from my husband as I had researched and knew we needed one at customs in Canada, but last time I asked the customs officer what would happen if I didn't have it- just out of curiosity. She just said I'd have to go into a interview room and wait while they contact my husband/child's dad. She said it's just a hassle is all. My husband just types out a letter that says his name, passport number, is fully aware that his wife-name +passport, and child- name + passport, are travelling with the following itinerary- dates + flight numbers. And he signs it. edited to add, my child and I have different last names so I've always carried his birth certificate but have only ever shown it once at Heathrow. <em>edited by moose on 20/01/2014</em>

Yorky, they do have discount for members. We get the discount everytime. I'm sorry to all but I have to say we have been there numerous times, almost weekly since opening and have never had an issue with food or service. We've enjoyed every visit and are happy to have a new place other than the dark old golf club. Guess we've been lucky!

We're looking at a 2009 Land Cruiser and noticed it doesn't have iso fix/latch system for the car seat. That's fine with us, we don't mind using a seat belt, just have enjoyed the ease of the iso fix base. However we have a question about the next size up car seat, a forward facing one. Don't they usually use a seat belt and also tether to an anchor behind the seat or on the floor behind? And if so, does the 2009 Land Cruiser have these anchors? My husband has just returned from looking at the vehicle and, although he checked for the iso fix anchors to find there were none, he didn't know about the anchor for a tether for the next size car seat so he can't say for sure if he saw something. He thinks there wasn't anything… we're curious to know and his solution was for me to ask EW, "'Cause they know everything."- quote. :)

Ok, grandma looked all over our hometown as all she wanted to get our 1year old is Big Hug Elmo. She found one and sent it along in older granddaughters suitcase. Elmo had a long journey, 3 airports and 28 hours later he arrived. Safely but not soundly. Elmo won't work, but he makes a lovely rattlely sound when you shake him :( If anyone happens to have one that they would like to rehome we will happily buy him and grandma will be none the wiser. It's like replacing the dead goldfish before your kid wakes up. We are far more worried about grandmas broken heart than the one year olds! Anyways, worth a shot!

I've been researching online and found a way to install a stair runner to marble steps using a marble adhesive product. But I can't seem to find any testimonials that convince me that it will not stain or ruin the steps once we pull the runner up. We're in our rental for another 2 years and have a little one, so I love the idea of a temporary stair runner. And because we know we're in this same place for 2 years it seems worth it. Has anyone tried installing one? Marble's pretty but not exactly convenient. Thanks in advance!

I need to get my neck/spine checked out as I've begun to notice a pretty severe curvature in my spine, headaches related to neck pain, grinding... all that good stuff. Has anybody had any experience or thoughts on the Neuro Spinal Hospital on Beach Road? Or does anybody have a good doctor recommendation in this specialization? Our health coverage is only in-patient/emergency care so I want to make sure I'm not chasing around doctors and pick a good one to start off!

We've had a few visiting cats for a number of years in our yard. We don't mind them at all really, quite the opposite as we've enjoyed their visits and know most by name! However now that we have a little one year old running around we've noticed that the main visiting cat isn't really diggin' the baby! He must like adults but seems to hiss at the baby. I also noticed him using the garden as his toileting area... is there anything I can add to the sand/soil to prevent this from happening. We don't want to completely ban our feline friend from visiting but in the best interest of our little one it's probably best that we try our best to prevent our garden from being a toilet! Any advice appreciated!

I used to shop Lulu's a lot when we lived closer to one. Now we're so close to motor city spinney's that it's just more convenient especially since I usually do the shopping with a little one. Plus it's a nice shop without the crazy hectic atmosphere and lights of the larger chains. Anyways, recently I decided to try and save a few bucks and hit Lulu's again. I came home so excited at how much less I spent and phoned my husband to brag... "we save about 300 dirhams!!". Then I finished the conversation by asking him to stop at spinney's on the way home to pick up some p0rk items, some bread since I didn't care for the bakery at Lulu's, and a few other items I couldn't get there. To which Mr. Moose replies, "soooo, about 300 dirhams worth then??" So yea. We compared a spinney's bill to Lulu's and didn't see enough of a difference to make the trip worth it. Needless to say I now stick with Spinneys. Saving money in groceries comes down to buying less, only what you need, and using what you buy without it going to waste. I also order my fruit and veg from Greenheart, which has drastically lowered my food bill per week and we're eating better. I try not to set foot in Carrefour or Geant if I can. I get crazy headaches in those manic places. <em>edited by moose on 14/10/2013</em>

We have 8 wooden slatted chairs and a table (also with slats) that desperately needs to be stripped and re-stained or painted. I'm not 100% sure the set is worth it so I need to get some estimates to decide if they get the bin or a makeover. Does anybody have any recommendations on who can do this?

If you can't find any channels on osn, my husband pays 100 us$ a year on www.nhl.com/gamecenter He loves it, he can watch the games live or recorded and you can change the settings to not display the score prior to watching if you are watching recordings. He really gets his 100 bucks worth and enjoys watching the games live during breakfast in the morning or whenever he has some time. During the playoffs it was definitely a great package to have bought into!

I've read a lot that are on my top ten, the Khaled Hosseini books, all of the Ken Follet series, along with others, yet nothing beats A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. A bit tough to get into but once you do it's an incredible read. I believe it is one of those MUST READS in a lifetime. <em>edited by moose on 01/10/2013</em>

We're in the 2 bedroom style villa, the small ones in the middle of the rows :) Instead of blocking just the stairs at the bottom, we bought a large tri-fold black steel gate and attached it across the hall entrance. It has a swinging door so it's really easy to use and it looks like an extension of the stairwell railing. So basically the bottom of the stairs and the entire front hall (front door, garage door, bathroom, and storage rooms) are blocked. Because the wall and the railing don't begin until about 2 steps up we thought it would be too hard to block just the stairs, and by blocking the front hall we don't have to be so careful if the laundry door is left open or about leaving recycling, shoes, purses, and all that in the hall. Baby is free to roam in the living room/dining area and kitchen. For upstairs we haven't purchased one yet. Here's a link to something similar as what we own (we didn't add so many sections).

I'm a big book fan and have already started collecting all the best of the best and classics for my little one. We read to him every night, even if it's a more difficult story we just shorten it or read until he's not paying attention (although he rarely is most of the time, he's only seven months). So many awesome classics come in board books now too, which is handy considering our little guy prefers to just eat-a-book every night. :) Bookworm by Park N Shop in Jumeirah has a great collection of board books, some of our favourites so far have been Giraffes Can't Dance, the Gruffalo, No Matter What (got that one at Kinokynia at Dubai Mall). Usborn has some great touchy feely books that are fun for him too, I think it's Usborn anyways... We have one called Farm. Some we have that are not board books but he's paying attention is Where the Wild Things Are, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Guess How Much I Love You, Andrew Drew and Drew... I could list them all but I'd be boring you. I made a list using [url=http://childrensbooksguide.com/top-100'>link[/url'> as my guide. Some of these come in board books some don't. Doesn't matter if it's a book for toddlers or babies... just read. They'll listen as long as they want and eventually will learn to love all stories. ETA: We just bought Pat The Bunny, and although it's not a board book and would come apart if baby was left alone to happily chew on it, it's really fun and he's loving it. It's very interactive and so old! Written in the 40's! WE bought it at Kinokynia Dubai Mall. <em>edited by moose on 01/04/2013</em>

I used to be a teacher for children of this age and I have recommended, time and time again, the book 123 MAGIC. Each and every parent who borrowed my copy either returned it because they went and bought their own copy or wouldn't return it because they just loved it! It takes effort, time, and commitment, but it really is a great strategy and a really easy read. Not sure you can find it here but I can absolutely say that it would be worth ordering. Good Luck!

All I can tell you is that in North America we have been encouraged as adults (and our teenagers) to get the booster. There's been an upsurge in Whopping Cough because, apparently (from what I understand), the vaccine at one point was thought to be working so well that they lessened the strength of it, so now Whooping Cough is on the rise. So they're trying to get people to get the booster to help eradicate Whooping Cough again. I can't shed any light on a pregnant woman receiving the booster, but I do know that if you are from North America (Canada for sure) and read your information from here it might be encouraged yet the UAE offers different vacs so might not be in line.

Has anyone had any luck buying one in Dubai? Searching online I've found some through an online superstore for the Middle East but it's just a bit more expensive... just trying to decide if we should buy here and have to pack it back or can wait and buy there.

Julia donaldson books are great for 5 year olds. My little boys all time favourite book was Charlie Cook and his Favourite book - we read it together every night like it was a new book! He still likes it and he's almost 10! The Gruffalo is great Room on the Broom is good The Stick Man plus loads more! Sorry to butt in but Claire, can't believe he's almost 10!!!!!!!! I remember the little three year old like it was yesterday! (got my own now :) four months next week!! Hoping time slows down a little!)

We also did Halong bay- loved it! And the train to Sa Pa, which is very cultural and beautiful in the mountains, very educational for young ones as it's such a different way of life and you can tour right in the different tribes. Hey, moose. How long would you advise for the Sa Pa trip? We couldn't afford the time the last time. Thanks! Sorry, just saw this. We took the night train to Sa Pa, got to the hotel mid morning, toured around a little, stayed one night, did a big tour the next day and then took the nigh train back to Hanoi that night. I've heard that homestays (you stay in a locals home) is awesome and much more interesting. We don't recommend the 5 star french hotel that we stayed at (sorry, don't remember the name but it's the only one like it there).

HI, thanks for the input. I was wondering if you were around Moose as I saw your posts in earlier Vietnam threads. Cooking classes are definitely on our 'to do' list as we did some in Italy and they were great fun. Not sure I can pull this trip together fast enough, but definitely going to see if I can make it happen! Haha, I'll always post on Vietnam threads... we thoroughly enjoyed that trip and reminisce of it often!!

I agree re: Ho Chi Minh. I would say Hanoi, tons to see and do (there's military museum that could be interesting for teens, and the old quarter, where you would probably stay, is easy to walk around and tour), or Hoi An for a little more relaxing, smaller, and still lots to do (cooking classes, touring old markets, museums, shops, great restaurants, a beach is close by, and renting a motorcycle isn't as daunting). We loved Hoi An and wish we would've stayed there longer, it's very "old school" and it is a world heritage site by UNESCO. We had young teens in our cooking class and they loved it.

Our doc told us that it is common all over the world for babies to have a witching hour sometime between 4-11pm. And many studies have been done but nothing conclusive; some say just over tired from stimulation during the day, some say a build up of gas from the day, some say just practising using the ol' lungs!! Some say try lights off and quiet, some say try music on quite a bit louder, some say rock on his tummy, some say try feeding as babies can also cluster feed at this hour (just really super hungry and want to eat eat eat. A lot of what people used to think is colic in the evenings is actually cluster feeding and letting them eat until content is best, and no worries- they won't overeat). We went through the same thing every night at 7pm. Infacol seemed to help, swaddling seemed to help, being close to mom in the sling seemed to help, baths seemed to help...!!! Every day we thought we figured out THE trick but in the end it just takes patience, soothing, and more patience. Now he is sort of fussy around this time but no screaming like before. And the baths seem to still be the calmest hour of his evening. You could try watching your diet, as I did the same thing and stopped lactose, only to be told that that's actually quite a rare intolerance in babies... most likely it's just a good old fashioned witching hour. <em>edited by moose on 05/11/2012</em>

Thanks Moose for your replies. It is so frustrating. We have also heard that there is a 'transit' visa that might be good for 96 hours. If that is the case, we would bring him back and then fly him out of here 3 days later. We are just trying to figure out how to get one of those visas, I am not sure if it is through the airline or not. I guess I will just have to phone the embassy and try it sort it out through them. I. Transit Visas: Transit visas can be obtained in one of the following ways: 1) Transit visas are not issued at the Embassy. As of 7 April, 2011, Canadian passport holders travelling through the U.A.E. to a third destination can obtain a 96 hour transit visa upon arrival at the airport. The traveller must: a. Only be transiting in the U.A.E. and on their way to a third destination; i.e. not returning to the original country of departure b. Hold a valid passport with a validity period of at least 6 months at departure c. Present a confirmed ticket to their onward destination, proving that their stay in the U.A.E. does not exceed 96 hours following arrival These transit visas are issued at the Marhaba Services visa office in the airport. More information on the services provided by Marhaba are available on their website. 2) Transit visas are also issued by the U.A.E. airlines: Emirates Airlines and Etihad Airlines. Details are provided below in section I.2.

To save money, I would only get the single entry visa, plan your trip to Jordan for the end, and have him fly into Dubai to start his vacation and out of Jordan to go back to Canada (not returning to Dubai). It will save you in the cost of the visa but will probably cost you just as much for that type of air travel... just expedia.com a multiple stops trip: canada-dubai-jordan-canada. <em>edited by moose on 25/10/2012</em>

Here's what I found. Not sure he'd be able to get the multiple entry one as he can't be in the UAE for more than 14 days at a time... 1) U.A.E. Embassy in Ottawa a. The Embassy issues three types of visit visas: i. Short term visa (Single Entry), with a validity of 30 days (non-renewable) – CAD $165 ii. Long term visa (Single Entry), with a validity of 90 days (non-renewable) – CAD $330 iii. Multiple Entry Visa $660 (Valid for 6 months, maximum stay in UAE 14 days each visit) Diplomatic and special Canadian passport holders can obtain any of the above visas at no cost. It's from this site: http://www.uae-embassy.ae/Embassies/ca/Content/2117 <em>edited by moose on 25/10/2012</em>

From an earlier thread, I went to pick up my Emirates ID card that has been at the post office since June. Praying it would still be there since I've heard they send them back if not picked up after 2 weeks, then it was 2 months, then someone said 3 months. It was still there. I asked the lady when they send them back, she said that they were told to send them back after 2 weeks then it changed to 3 months, now they are told to just keep them until they get picked up. She said they had so many because people go on long holidays over the summer. Obviously someone at Emirates ID realised how much more work it was to have all these cards come back and how asking people to re-do their applications was just adding to the backlog. Anywho, FYI for anyone who's not able to pick their ID up right away!

Also from Pinterest, and something I finally did because I can't think of what to do with them otherwise, is put each one in an empty toilet paper roll, the rolls are them all stood up in the basket so that each one has a home and they don't get tangled. So at least my basket of cords of no use looks tidy!

I'm not sure about this club, but I've had a few sessions at talise spa, and if you pay for a treatment of a certain amount you also get access to the beach club (food and drink not included). We then booked for an earlier session for our treatments and then spent the rest of the day by the private pool at Talise (quieter than the resort pool) and also went down to the beach club and their pool later. It seemed like a good option, just paid separately for food and drinks.

Although it says on the form if it's not collected within 2 weeks it will be discarded i rang Empost and she told me they actually keep them for 3 months before they get sent back to Emirates ID... You need to take passport, receipt and the text they sent you saying it is ready.. edited by PennyLane on 16/10/2012 I never actually received a text. Anyways, I'll be heading straight there tomorrow and hopefully, HOPEFULLY, I don't have to re-do the whole thing! Thanks.
