Milne Family Secret Wish

Posted By: Steve The Grunt · 4/25/2014 6:52:00 AM

Today we had a very special Gerry Forbes Secret Wish for a famiy you may have seen in the news lately.  Kelly Milne lost his partner Brenda Walsh and mother of two children - Cadence and Khloe Walsh on April 13th.  On top of that, they lost their house and almost all of their belongings.  They're living with Kelly's brother right now until they can find a new place to stay.  


They could really use any help they can get.  If you'd like to donate to this family, you can do so at TD Canada Trust.  The fund is under Katie Milne in trust for Kelly Milne.  Account # 8079-6093035.


Thank you for all your support.

    I wanted to write a review on this particular watch the Tissot Men s T17151632 T Sport PRC200 that provides a slightly different perspective than one usually finds reading watch reviews That is to say I write from the perspective of a general watch skeptic not an enthusiast My personality is such that I can rationally understand but never emotionally appreciate spending lots of money on or building a collection of something s whose primary functional purpose is largely approximated by a five dollar timepiece aaa fake replica glashutte original watches Basically I regard watches as solely jewelry an extravagance that still remains one of the few things the buy and sell replica glashutte original watches well dressed man can accessorize with So when I bought this in November 2012 I was looking for a one stop watch that would satisfy my personal criteria Ideally my choice replica glashutte original watches would last me a long time durability display the time accurately and be aesthetically clean minimal Since I bought this watch in November 2012 I m happy to report that it is completely satisfying all those expectations I m really glad I stepped it up from where my usual budget might be to purchase it I wanted to take the time to highlight the few facets of the watch I really appreciate in order of their importance to me 1 Its versatility When I bought this I wanted something that would pair with both casual and dressy outfits I was primarily concerned with the former because that s the style of outfit I wear most I find the rough chocolate brown strap of the watch really dresses things down it feels perfectly natural for me at least to wear this with blue jeans and sneakers It avoids the problem with other gold and silver watches I had previously owned that I never really felt I could pair with casual outfits However I ve found this watch also serves well when I want to dress things up a bit I missed it at first perusal but the watch glimmers well because of its large size and the highly polished wider stainless steel side I find it s a nice balance my watch isn t constantly glimmering in mine or others faces which can be fairly ostentatious but seems to catch the eye once and then let things be 2 Its easy to read I hadn t really appreciated this from the pictures but I find reading this watch much easier than my previous lower quality ones It s a combination of the relatively bigger face and the brilliant addition of the sapphire crystal glass which is amazingly clear My silver Citizen s face which I wear less often now seems very hazy in comparison and I realize now that combined with the closeness of the minutes hash marks on that watch meant that truthfully I never much was using it for telling actual time I find now that with my Tissot I replica rolex daytona watches am pulling my iPhone out less often and relying on the watch more to figure out when I need to get somewhere which is great particularly when I don t want to be distracted 3 The watch face is simple and minimalist I find the separation of the chronograph faces instead of the artful way other watches combine them makes that functionality slightly easier to use At least I find myself using the chronograph functions more with this watch but perhaps it s its other worthy qualities that are driving that Still I love the choice of the colors Tissot used for the watch hands a pale gray green which is strongly luminscent in the dark and the tiny dash of red found in two of the chronograph s numbers which mix well with the stark clean white of the background That aesthetic appreciation might be wholly sentimental and probably not generalizable but still I still find myself occasionally looking at the face from time to time just admiring it 4 Tissot is a mid market company providing value I did a little research Googling through watch forums before buying this watch to double check the reputation of Tissot It pleased to me to find that Tissot was in general endorsed with commenters saying it was a mid market Swiss company providing value by including a few of the embellishments of much higher priced watches In particular the sapphire crystal face which I love seems to be something that is rare at the price point this watch is being sold at What pleased me most was that Tissot was mid market which I find for most things is where I derive the most replica glashutte original watches replicas for sale value unlike cheaper Citizens and Fossils I have owned prior I don t expect this watch to just stop ticking on me anytime soon Another impression I got was that Tissot was relatively unknown replica glashutte original watches replica discount which I was also happy to hear because it meant I wasn t being fleeced by a fashion watch or some like which are often sold at much higher prices than the intrinsic value of their components Finally reassuring to me was the fact Tissot is a Swiss company Swiss and Japanese watch companies seem particularly recommended for the quality of their timepieces 5 The price I was pleased at the price and discount I bought this watch at because as mentioned earlier Tissot seems to include a few of the embellishments of much higher priced watches in their products The price was not too much and not little it was not too much because it was well within of my budget of around 750 the price of the single most useful item I own my iPad It was not too little because I ve had too many problems with batteries dying and watches stopping with lower priced legitimate manufacturers like Citizen and Fossil in addition it wasn t excessively discounted like the wares of certain manufacturer The question that comes up in my mind If they re lying about the RRP a price that their watches never sell at what are else are they lying about The one con that comes to mind Couldn t Tissot include some instructions on how to open the deployment strap in the casing Its opening seems to frustrate alot of people including myself at the beginning Some instructions or a video on their website would go a long way to alleviate those frustrations My verdict I love this watch and give it my most enthusiastic recommendation
