Launching of New Business Model + Portable Toilet Rental Company

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Hello again fellow “druggies”. Just stopping by promote another friend who started off a business web site in Calgary. Their company rents out portable toilets to construction companies and such in the Southern Alberta, and allot in the Calgary area proper.

Interesting business because they rent out the units to companies that don’t want to use those crappy, plastic, porta-poddy things. They’re really smelly and disgusting for sure. I dread even having to use those porta-poddy (crap buckets) – I mean, I “hold it in” when “I have to go” for a long, long time. I will practically have an accident before stepping into one of those filthy disease traps.

So this bathrooms are high end, with a mens and ladies private toilets, sinks, mirrors, hand dryers, etc. These units are really amazing, and I sat in one and looked around when they got delivery of their first one. All shiny and new – the stainless steel checker-plating makes you feel like you stepped into a Get-Smart episode from the sixties, or perhaps a Dr. Who episode from over in England.

Very clean, and comfortable, and they are rated for minus 40 degrees. They use heat tape for the waste storage tanks, and they have electric heat inside as well for the users.

There are 110 volt connections on the side of the unit and sewer connections.

All units are completely portable and have crane hooks on top for putting on the roof a high-rise. All for the health and safey of workers.

NOW, you probably think they cost more for the contractors and builders than the cheap plastic porta-poddy units. Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Wrong. After you take in all money considerations, these units end up saving the company money.

You can check out their new site to see all of this for yourself – their site is called portabletoiletrentalcalgary.com and is was just launched today. Blog is cool too, I have to admit.

So we will be adding more information on the go here to this site and watch how their online presence increases over the weeks, month, and years.

Good show guys!

Perry McGeough – Calgary Alberta – Feeding the Poor

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

I added this for a friend who works hard to feed the poor in Calgary, Alberta. His name is Perry McGeough. I will have a few more posts about Perry’s efforts to help the poor, the addicted, the homeless, and the desperate. The world could use MANY more like Perry McGeough in it.

Food Fight and the Mix 97.7 Patty Wagon are a great hit at The Calgary Dream Centre’s Radiothon Thursday September 23rd 2010. 

Food Fight is an organization owned and operated by Perry McGeough. For the past three years “Food Fight” has been feeding people from the hundreds, to sometimes thousands, who are living in homelessness, shelters and the less fortunate.

“Today I am doing this event at the Calgary Dream Centre to support their cause and help fight addictions while raising money to build transitional housing some of these men will soon move into another phase of their life.”

We’ve got burgers, assorted salads, refreshments…what can I say….I love to cook for these causes.  I do them year round…sun, rain, sleet, snow…I’ll be there!” It’s the “hand to hand combat” we do that makes a difference, one meal at a time.

List of Canadian MPs in Calgary To Vote Out if They Don’t Push To Get Our Troops Out of Afghanistan

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

OK. Enough.

You can help get our troops out of Afghanistan by sigining this petition, or use the info below to contact your MP and make your feeling known.

We need to get ALL of our Canadian troops out of Afghanistan ASAP. This has gone on way too long, as we go on supporting a defunct American political machine. Below is a list of the MPs for the Calgary area who need to be emailed around the clock (click here for the complete contact and email list of all Canadian MPs you can write, email, and/or phone). The best way to apply pressure on these MPs is to use snail mail.

I have begun a campaign to have these MPs removed from office if they are found to be promoting any further activity by Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan. We never should have been in Afghanistan in the first place, but thanks to weak-kneed politicians in Ottawa, we followed along with the Bush administration (and now the Obama administration) into war.

Canadian politicians (starting with the ones in my home city of Calgary) need to be voted out if they support any further wars just because the USA says it is required.

Canadian voters need to apply enough pressure on these MPs to reverse their stance on this issue.
