Happy Canada Day 47/229 July 01 2016, 0 Comments

While most of the province is busy either eating hot dogs and celebrating Canada Day or attending special events memorializing the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont Hamel, I am repricing almost everything in my shop.

Today, the Harmonized Sales Tax increased from 13% to 15%.  Because I prefer to have all of my products priced with the tax included (much easier to hand-write receipts that way), I have to reprice anything the HST applies to.

While doing that, I realized that one of my prints wasn't listed on my website.  How did I forget about my lovely Whip Sculpin? 

I have a great memory of some boys in Newtown catching a sculpin at someone's stagehead (c.late 1970s).  One of the guys picked up a big sharp rock and with one swift chop, severed the fish into two parts.  We were fascinated to see a live rock crab crawl out of the fish!
