Here's how it works. Holden throws some burgers on the barbie and VV members pour through to pick the key chunk out of the lock. And eat burgers.

OK Holden, listen up. I had to go to my lock guy this afternoon and I discussed your dilemma. Hubers on Burnside. They have tools and skills to help you.

It's a mom and pop store. I have dealt with them for over 30 years. They are cost effective.

Please tell me the Geo thing was just humour. I rented one of those pieces of $hit in Hawaii once. When the air conditioning kicked in......the car slowed down. I'm not kidding.

^That's my favourite technique. Although it's actually the trunk lock, so I guess that means I'll have to suddenly accelerate to extremely high g-forces for the key to fall out. Which might be hard in a '94 three cylinder Geo Metro.


Why didn't you say so at the start. Get your wife of friend to help you pick the car up and simply shake it out.

Put the tip of the key on Used Vic for cheap and say that it's their responsibility to remove the tip without damaging the car.

We need a little acrylic stucco repair done on the exterior of our house if anyone has any advice/recommendations.

Can anyone recommend someone who refurbishes/repairs heritage windows? I'd just as soon call someone like Victoria Sash & Door or Victoria Heritage Windows, but I don't want to pay thru the nose.

Any suggestions for a good drywaller/painter for a small interior patch project?

Yes, but I'm not sure if I want to recommend him.  Decent work, but issues with keeping a schedule.  Makes it a little frustrating when the job requires repeated short visits to mud, sand, mud, sand, etc..

Shoe repair / cobbler recommendations? Need inner heels fixed, primarily runners, one set of dress shoes.

I recommend The Oak Bay Cobbler at 2045 Oak Bay Avenue. Oh and by the way he's in Oak Bay.

The shoemaker on Blanshard just closed. There's still Stevenson's on Fort near Douglas and another boot guy on Johnson near Broad.

Should I start a thread titled "Business names that actually make sense"?

There is one in the Westshore Mall by Starbucks that is pretty reasonable.
