    More and more funnies.. vol: something...

    Financially speaking you are better off to drink the beer.  Because after you saved it all up all that money the tax man would get half and the ex-wife would get the rest.

    "Rogue One: a Star Wars story" (official trailer released for Dec. 2016 movie)

    I had tickets to see it today but the weather was too bad to drive to the theater.  There goes 20 bucks down the drain.  Guess I will try again tomorrow.  Oh and in my humble opinion, Episode IV was the best of the three.

    Quick and easy method.  2% per year completed, so in your case 50% of your current gross pay.  If you go see your release clerk, they can print of a pension forecast for you, which will be very close to actual.

    200 Year Old Pub Uncovered in Manchester

    One of the perks of being a single dad is that the house is all one big "man cave".  If I want to park the Harley in the dining room for the winter I can.  LOL

    Brookfield question IPR 3b move.

    I just completed my IPR move after my 3b.  The whole process was the same as a normal posting.  All my expenses were covered, real estate fees, accommodations, food, millage, etc.  Exception being, I got a 650 incidental allowance instead of a posting allowance.  Also, there was no minimum...

    Military Service on your Resume

    I used the company at www.bestfootforward.co to build my resume for me.  It is a Canadian company that is familiar with the MPRR, PDR, and such.  They also offer a military discount.  They did a wonderful job with mine.

    Pension Transfer Value / Lump Sum Pymt [Merged]

    Just a follow up to my previous post.  I received my back dated pension monies for the period of 15 Feb to 31 Mar today, and will start getting regular cheques at the end of April.  8 to 10 weeks to get it all squared away.  A lot better than their initial estimate.

    Short Days

    Canadian Forces Leave Policy Manual is what you are looking for.  If I am not mistaken, been a while since I looked at file numbers, I think it is 5500-1  When in doubt, ask your clerk.  That is what they are there for.

    Got a laugh out of this.  Happen to stumble across a website sell cosplay outfits.  Was going through the list and saw the usual TV show costumes.  Then I saw this in the list.......... http://cosplaysky.ca/cosplay-costumes/tv-drama-costumes/canadian-air-force.html Didn't expect that.  :)

    Pension Transfer Value / Lump Sum Pymt [Merged]

    I sent an email yesterday to the pension folks asking how long it takes.  They got back to me today stating it would be a 3 to 4 month wait.  They need to hire more staff as this is totally unacceptable.

    Typically you are authorized commercial accommodations or you are not while on TD.  Distance does not really play a part.  Even in a scenario where you requested a PMV waiver to go on a TD you would not be entitled to commercial accommodations during the journey so distance from home would not...
