The neon yellow colour of Havard's house on Dudley Avenue in Winnipeg is the result of paint job gone wrong. It's been attracting the attention of passerby since the colour was painted on Wednesday, with several people stopping to take pictures, Havard said.

Although, pictures don't really do it justice. The colour is so bright, at night, the house looks like it's glowing, the homeowner said.

Havard she wanted her home painted a subtle, light yellow after seeing a similar looking house near her daughter's school.

"I thought the colour was just really nice. It was a cute, calm yellow," she said.

She says she picked out a similar colour,  called "Butter Up," on a paint company's mobile app.

Havard asked house-painters to match it, and when they showed her a patch they'd mixed and painted on the back of the house last Wednesday, it looked about the same as what she'd seen on the app. So, she decided to get on with her day, taking her kids to the splash pad, and leave the painters to it.

A woman's video demonstrating the 'best method' for peeling garlic has gone viral

A woman's video demonstrating the 'best method' for peeling garlic has gone viral Every now and again you see something on the internet which makes perfect sense, but yet its logic has seemingly evaded everyone since the beginning of time. In a video recently uploaded to Twitter by user Valentina Pestilenez, she demonstrates how easy it is to peel a piece of garlic and not spend forever having to deal with all those annoying flakey bits.

Some of the lyrics are: “a young man went walking and happened upon a maiden alone. She seemed to look through him, her eyes full of sorrow, and her wail chilled his marrow much more than the snow. Come with me, oh come with me, as I am, so you shall be.”

Looking for a song that I would hear all the time at work before lockdown, can't find it anywhere online though Lyrics go something like "You say it's so hard to be so positive I say it's more hard to be so negative We were taking but now we're gonna give We were dying but now we're gonna.

When the family arrived home, Havard said she could see her house from blocks away. It was painted a bright, neon yellow, similar to colour you'd find on road signs.

"I was like, 'no no.' And it became apparent that this is, in fact, our house and we were floored — I mean to say the least," she said.

"And then we watched the moon shine off it, trying to calm down."

Havard says the painting company has offered to repaint the house for free, but unfortunately, they will have to use whatever colour can cover up the bright yellow colour.

She says she takes responsibility for the paint job gone bad, and wishes she had just gone into a paint store and got someone to mix the colours there.

"I was too relaxed, and what I should have done was gone to the store, and immediately picked up the colours with the colour experts and given them the actual swatches," she said.

"But you know, I was a first time homeowner. I didn't know that you have to be so careful about these things."

For now, Havard hopes her neighbours don't hate her too much.

"I think it's quite an eyesore for the neighbourhood."

What’s wrong with the Kadri-Barrie deal?.
This isn’t a both sides view, this is just the contrarian take. Everyone is pumped up about the trade that finally brought a famous and experienced top-four, right-shooting defender to the Maple Leafs. But is this a sunshine and roses deal? Or are there a lot of thorns in the bouquet? Alexander Kerfoot is not Nazem Kadri This is the obvious one. Kerfoot is a modestly gifted player who generates a lot more excitement with his defensive numbers than his offensive, once you dig past the boxcars.
