Well this board certainly confirms one thing, there are alot people out there who are super friendly and looking for an excuse to have a party or go to Belize..
Yes, I do love living in Toronto. Been here 13 years! Originally from North Western Ontario near the Manitoba border. I have done all those winter things.. curling, ice fishing, skiing and while I enjoy them, guess what, I'd rather spend more time on a beach, in the water or just enjoying the quite times of places like San Pedro. I saw the Phanton of the Opera twice.. loved it. Another show I saw twice and absolutely loved was Mamma Mia!! Haven't been to the EX yet this year but will definitely get there.. Yes, it's so much more expensive for us to fly anywhere.. heck it costs as much to fly to Wpg as it does to London England (at times). Then we canucks get hit with the US exchange on our loonies and toonies.. double wammie. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress of the TO chapter.. There's a brew pub near me for those beer drinkers out there.. maybe that'll entice a few people.. I know that for some people in Colorado, their brew pubs rank supreme.. visited my share of them around Denver and Breckenridge..
PS Pirate.. loved your trip reports.. and salute Kathy for her fund raising walk for cancer.. I know Carol & Sherrie well so understand when you say how great they are..
Cheers everyone.. Gail
