    Richard can come to my Christmas Party anytime. I hope this new show excites cooking enthusiasts and science geeks alike. The world is moving is new directions and I wonder how we will prepare food in the future. We may not be able "to do this at home" but it's fun to see how it can be done.

    Mr. Ali – you were talking about a VAT in Canada ie:

    1) The GST was the transfer of a MANUFACTURING TAX from Business to the Consumer

    2) Up in BC the HST is Transferring 2 Billion in Taxes from Business to the Consumer

    3) Why are we raising taxes on Consumers & then cutting taxes for business ie: this is backwards

    4) Incomes taxes are progressive & VAT Taxes are regressive ie: do we want to go back to the 50's ( VAT ) or progress to the Future with income Taxes etc.

    Jeremy, 10 mos later we now have had 70+ banks fail, and it ain't over yet. A real estate group ietsmates that foreclosures are going to continue CLIMBING through 09 AND '10, and based on the assumption that the economy recovers sometime in '10, the foreclosures will gradually trail off (historically, unemployment continues to rise even after the end' of the recession.) This means we have yet to pass the 50% mark on the total foreclosures due to the bubble and the current recession!
