Doug, that's some very nice things a westerner ever said about Toronto. You must be getting soft!

Mike, you caught me in a mellow moment. Must have been the Italian brandy.

If you need some classic T.O. bashing, a comment or two about dear old Toronto the Good, self-appointed centre of the universe, I can probably oblige.

"Hi, I see you're from Toronto. Can I borrow a cup of smug?"

I always got a kick of of the Toronto news on the first snowfall of each winter. Always 500 accidents, like can't you remember how to drive when it snows?

I can pick on Toronto as I am not from there, I just lived there for 10 yrs. They definitely consider themselves the center of the universe and deserve the poking they get.

No, I will be traveling every week. I have enough air miles to fly to the moon and back once a week for the next 50 years. I want him to finish this school year here. He is a senior

500 accidents, heck that is a slow Sunday here. The little snow we get (once every two years) is always a blast to watch. All the Housewives remember their SUV is 4x4, and keep driving like it is July. Nobody told them 4WD does not improve stopping.....

Okay...

Everyone, hold up on the GREATLY APPRECIATED Toronto, Canada info. The company is playing me like a Yo-Yo. Now I am headed to El Paso, TX to be followed by Toronto after the first of the year. Saddly, I know quite a bit about that area....

Now where did I leave my bullet proof unitard.....

El Paso is my part of the world. Let me know if I can provide some updated local color. Or at least some great places to get Mexican food.

David,

I appreciate the offer, but being as the company like to play with Yo-Yo's, they are now talking about Canada again.

I told them to make a decision and call me Monday....

All Canadian's please feel free to start the information flow again.

And if you see a GM 1 ton truck with Texas tags and a driver that looks to be wearing every article of clothing he owns this winter, feel free to stop me and say hello. I fear I need to stop by the local meat processing plant to begin temperature acclimation training in their freezers. I am going to end up looking like the younger brother in the movie "Christmas Story". So over dressed my arms won't bend.
