Billie Jo’s been a “Kijiji fiend” the last few months. She’s selling EVERYTHING! You want an old lamp? She’s got one. Treadmill? Sold it. Circular Saw? (don’t ask) She’s got one of those too!
If you need chairs, however, you need to see this ad from right here in Winnipeg! This, by the way, is the picture that accompanies it. Sorry ladies, the shirtless guy doesn’t come with them. LOL

*I want to let you know ahead of time, this video contains a women wearing lingerie! Why is this a big deal, you ask? Well, the commercial has been deemed “too racy” by both ABC and FOX. This has outraged a LOT of people – especially when you see the Victoria’s Secret commercials (which, in my opinion, are WAY more provocative than this!)
Ashley Graham, who stars in the ad, called the networks’ decision prejudiced, explaining ‘The Victoria’s Secret girls can flaunt around their panties all day long. But when there’s a bigger woman with a little bit extra, they snipped it out immediately.’
She called the entire situation sad. I concur. Honestly, I wish my name was Dan LOL
What do you think?

This video’s been around for awhile, but it’s making the rounds on the ‘net again. Also, I’m wondering how they always spot a clean car from the air? LOL

Well, we’ve had the cat who loves the iPad, so it just stands to reason that members of the K9 family would get a kick out of it too! LOL

Bad news if you were hoping to get your hands on an iPad here in Canada later this month. Apple has decided to delay the launch because it’s selling so well in the U.S.
We will be able to get the iPad through Rogers Wireless at the end of May. Billie Jo says she wants one to replace her laptop. Me? I’m good with my iMac and my iPhone for now.
This kitty, however, LOVES the new toy from Apple! Cute! Although I hope there’s a screen protector on that thing!

This little girl is IN LOVE. Doesn’t it just break your heart?
This video will likely be shown to everyone at her wedding years from now. It would be a little weird if her husband’s name turned out to be Steven though, wouldn’t it?
