12:53PM - Moving Filming

Curious if anyone randomly knows what was being filmed in Queensland in the SE? They were set up for almost 2 weeks in front of a school and then gone one day. Anyone have any knowledge on how to figure that out?

6:00AM - Ring for Sale

I've got a ring I'm trying to sell. I inherited it from my great grandmother, but I'm not one to wear such a ring, and I've no one to pass it onto, myself. Plus, I don't deny I could use whatever money I could get for the ring. It was apparently made in India sometime between 1920 and 1950. It's 14K gold, with seventeen sapphires and eight opals. It was appraised at $2,200 Canadian as of March 6th, 2014. Ideally I'd like to get $1,500 for it, but I've no idea if that's reasonable, or even how to go about selling said ring.

Assuming this works, I've included pictures below the cut, for anyone interested in seeing the ring itself.

Does anyone have any idea how I might go about selling this ring for a reasonable amount, or does anyone perhaps want the ring?

Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

3:36PM - Bird rescue loses home and birds to fire

Hi peeps, one of the few local bird rescues in town, Birdline, had a fire that affected the home of the group's executive director as well as killing about two dozen birds :-(

Here's a video about the rescue from January:

2:37PM - Best Steak?

Hey there fellow Calgarians!

I am coming to visit your city for the first time next week and would like to know where I can get a really nice steak. Maybe this is a moot question because there are many, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

Anything else worth mentioning, I'll read. Unfortunately, I won't be there for long so sights or restaurants outside of the downtown core won't do. :(

Thanks in advance for your help!

8:36AM - Happenings in Sunalta last night?

Wondering if anyone knows what the heck was going on in Sunalta around 11:30pm last night? There were several parked police cruisers with their lights going all over the neighborhood; there were at least three at Sacred Heart school, one up by the new C-Train station, and one parked at Heritage Music. I also spotted a K9 unit on foot on 16th Street & 13th Ave.

I can't find any mention of anything going on from any of the local news outlets, so I figured I'd ask here and see if anyone knew what was going on.

11:32AM - Used DVDs?

Hello Calgary!

Wow, is there an echo in here? LJ sure is empty these days.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a shop in the downtown/Mission/Beltline/Sunnyside area that has a decent selection of used DVDs.

Archaic, I know, but all the same--any help?

I'm planning on going camping this weekend, leaving Sunday. Any recommendations for a place about 2 hours or less from Calgary? What are the chances of me actually getting a spot anywhere?

10:22AM - Best milkshake in the city?

My daughter has her dance recital tomorrow and she was promised a milkshake after. What is the best place to go? Preferably somewhere in the south? I don't want a fast food milkshake, I want to find those fancy ones, kinda like this:
