My wife and I are the proud grandparents to two delightful girls; aged seven and four.
I'm employed by an agency that operates homeless shelters and provides supportive housing in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.
I have a serious fascination for vintage sci-fi and Victorian gothic horror.
Recently, I've become interested in researching the philosophies of Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida and Umberto Eco.
I've been composing Electronic music since 1975. You can download some of it for free here:
|survey||Assuming they come in cases of 12 and 6 cases would be about a year's worth... 72 cans.|
A more important consideration might be: Is this the only thing that they buy like this and how much storage space do they have in their pantry?
Personally, I would think 12 was plenty, but we do stock up on canned soup, tomato paste and a few other items.

We had rotary phones in the house when I was growing up. Everyone did. When I moved out, rotary phones were still the rule rather than the exception. The phone company owned the phones back then and they were hard-wired into your house. You couldn't unplug them. You rented them from the phone company. Those things were big heavy pieces of machinery. You could bash someone over the head with it and kill them. You could fling them against the wall and it would make a hole in the wall before it would break the phone.
I remember the first time I went to the drug store and bought my very own push button phone. It was probably the late eighties or early nineties. It was about $20. Someone tripped over the cord and it fell off the coffee table and smashed into a million pieces. Same thing happened to the next one.
