Well I learned something new today. Thank you. Canada celebrates Mother's Day the same day we do. I know your Thanksgiving day is different from ours.

I got a package from the Webstaraunt Store today!

I got 200 pan liners (1/2 sheet size)
a French tapered rolling pin (1/2 the price of Amazon)
2 9" Winco aluminum cake pans $3.69 each!
1 8" Winco Aluminum cake pan (to go with my other 2 8") $3.19 each!
30-6pk cupcake inserts (2 fit in a 1/4 sheet cake box)
a BIG Ateco icing smoother (also 1/2 the price of amazon)
1000 pack of cupcake liners $7.49!
Pack of 25 gold cake boards

They have some awesome deals! They take a lot of items like the pan liners and cake boards, and break down the cases, selling smaller quantities for the home cook. Their prices beat my local restaurant supply (the cake pans were 1/3 the price, same brand) and pretty much everything I bought was far cheaper than even Amazon.

Their shipping to residential is a bit high, but if you order a bunch of stuff it becomes worth it, the shipping only went up a dollar or two going from one item to a full box.

I just ordered 200 parchment pan liners for my half-sheet pans. I discovered that shipping charges were the same for a quantity of 100 or 200 so I went for the 200. It'll keep. I'm looking forward to not having to deal with curly, not the right size, pieces of parchment when i bake.

I kept adding stuff because the shipping barely moved as I added stuff, LOL. I had to quit though, I could have kept shopping!

The winco pans that I bought are heavier than the Wilton pans at a much lower price. I will definitely shop with them again!

Their FAQ says they ship to Canada, but you either use FedEx and FedEx brokers the import duties or you tell them who you want to broker for you. Sounds like a PITA. Oh well, maybe I can find a good Canadian source.

Last Fall on Sept. 13th our AC was shut off and the heat tuned on. After that date we had several more days of weather where the temp was above 90F. In the apartments, some had temps well above 100F. Some residents had to be removed by ambulance to the hospital. Most of the tenants were sitting outside at 1 a.m. in order to get relief. The law states that landlords must provide heat from Sept. 15th to June 15th. So I sat down and wrote a letter with charts from NOAA showing the temperatures for Boston from Septembr 13th to Oct. 30th. I sent a copy to every one of our representatives, law makers, the Mayor and anyone else who is responsible for "One size fits all." laws. I asked that a separate law for the elderly be written as we have different needs and are restricted by what we are allowed to have in our apartments. I atteneded a meeting at City Hall and spoke to the City Council addressing this matter.

Today, I am happy to announce, our AC was turned on 24 days early. If a tenant gets cold, they can put of a sweater. They don't have to turn on their AC unit. So you see folks, you can fight City Hall, the State House and any other fool who likes to write laws that are not right for everyone. And you can win!!!
