The Sunday Whatzit?
whatzit Mar 29:15
Local Whatzit? guy Bixman, as he does every Sunday,
tries to stump readers with unusual items. Do you know
what this object might be used for?


The iPhone connector in the background gives a sense of the size of the object. My guess is an incense burner.

St. Albert

It clearly is silver. A salt shaker to be sure. The pepper shaker should have slightly larger holes.

Southern Alberta

Could it be a container for infusing loose tea?


Don, could that be an incense burner container?

Crouse Double Dipping Audit

This clock shows just how much time has elapsed since council passed a motion October 27, 2014 to conduct an audit of the mayor’s double dipping, ‘shoe box’ expense record that in about a dozen or more cases appeared to bill both the city of St. Albert and the Capital Region Board for identical expenses.

An examination of their own records has now dragged on well past four months and folks are beginning to wonder just how long such an audit should take. An audit taken by the administration staff of the only employee council has control over. Will the audit be impartial? We think our readers are savvy enough to know the answer to that question.

Here is the current time lapsed:

Some Great Advice

Some Great Advice

I was working out at the gym when I spotted a sweet young thing walk in.

I asked the trainer standing next to me, "What machine would you recommend I use to impress that lady over there?"

The trainer looked me over and said; "I would recommend the ATM in the lobby."

Chicken Wings Are The New Lamb Shanks

Chicken Wings
First, it's brined. Then slowly confited in its own fat. Cooled, pressed and smoked. Finally, it's crisped in the frying pan.

Behold: chicken wing bacon.

Don't stop there. At a light and airy bar on Auckland's viaduct, deboned and confit wings come with oyster mushrooms, spring greens and 'Asian flavours' – $18 for four, available as an entrée before Christmas, but recently elevated to mains status.

Details here.
