On This Day In Canadian History....

1870 - Canada's agent in London. Sir John Rose, delivers a bank draft for £300,000 (the equivalent of $11 million) to the Hudson's Bay Company in full payment for the title to Rupert's Land. The land includes all territories drained by rivers flowing into Hudson Bay (most of today's Prairie provinces, northern Ontario, northwestern Quebec and portions of the Northwest Territories.) The HBC keeps blocks of land around its trading posts and 1/20 of the fertile belt (2.8 million hectares).

Good morning Phil, M. Rouge, Angel & all :)

Have you been getting extra points for promptly entering the AAP on CHEZ since Cosmo's been hosting the morning show?!

@ Mr. E

Are they doing that again?!?!

Frack! Like I posted last week, I normally do all of my Rogers Radio codes in the evening. While relaxing and watching TV, during the commercials I read all the comments, jokes, rants, b-day greetings and codes in one window and type in the codes into the appropriate radio station website in the other window.

I guess I'll have to get into the habit of typing in the All Access Password right away, from now on.

@Mr. E. :-)

Like Mr. Red I don't enter all the bonus codes as soon as I hear them. How many extra points did you get for nippy & early?

@ Mr. Red & Angel

I'm pulling your legs! :)

I was just wondering if any of the regulars here had changed their code entry habits after getting shorted last week. There were definitely no extra bonus points for entering today's word and if there were yesterday, the joke is on me too as I entered it late, not "early" (pun intended; apparently Cosmo chose that word because he has to wake up early now).
