Hi
I came across this site last night, and decided to stop by and check it out. I'm not politically active, nor do I belong to any religious orders, but I have a respect for the beliefs of others. I have a good sense of humour..love to laugh. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

@jgweed,
thank you for the welcome John... we can all use some "warmth" with winter just around the corner

@Gwyniviere,
How true. One appreciates the coolness and colours of autumn, and sometimes forgets the bitter winds and deep snows of winter.

Wear a coat. Problem solved.

@VideCorSpoon,
You have never experienced Chicago winters and the wind sheering between buildings, against which no coat is sufficient to keep you warm for more than ten minutes.

@jgweed,
Hmmm... Africa,

I barely even turned the heater on for more than two nights this last winter.
A scarf and hat? Whats that?

Daytime in winter is shorts and a swim in the Indian ocean.
Its never too cold for a swim in Mandela Bay.
The only real problem, is that the locals haven't really
cottoned on to the idea of siesta yet....

Its Springtime today!

seeing as though you have everything already ....

just leave it where it is ...?

@Poseidon,
of course... leave things where they are until the ocassion arrives that it may be needed

I agree with you John... winters here can be cold and damp brrrr. wind cutting across Lake Ontario is not pleasant in the cold months

Having also lived in Africa one must appreciate the vastness of the continent. We were situated in the savanna. Can get quite cool during the "cold season" It was not uncommon to see people sporting woolen sweaters and hats at night.

@Billy phil,
Yes I am Billy. I spent several years in Toronto and Kingston, and have now returned to the "great white north". Does that make me cuckoo, like the MacKenzie brothers? lol

@Gwyniviere,
Not at all.

Lately, I hear MANY Americans saying if McCain gets elected, they are leaving the country.

AND NOW THAT the Canadien $ = the US $, what's to lose?

@Billy phil,
People say lots of things. People said that they would leave the country if Bush was elected to a second term. Funny how those people are still here saying the same thing about McCain.

@Billy phil,
Just curious:
What would you do here in Canada? I hope you're a doctor, because we sure could use some up here.

@Gwyniviere,
Some of us are serious about leaving should McCain be elected. I have a degree to finish, but after that's done... well, I will certainly be surveying my options. Might teach English in the east, or move to some remote Canadian village, teach and cultivate my garden.

@Didymos Thomas,
I don't know. I haven't been enthused by either candidate. Do I vote for Jeff Johnson or John Jeffson? Whoever is elected... still expect the same amount of bureaucracy and broken campaign promises.

As a fan of the short lived tv series Due South... become a Mountie if you move to Canada. You will learn about caribou and tracking and... snow. You can then move to New York and get a wicked awesome show partnered with a tough but lovable new york detective fighting crime using your Mountie know how. Of course, there will always be the occasional cameo appearances by such notable b-list personalities as Cathy griffin and James woods.

@VideCorSpoon,
Despite the similarities and obvious failings of both major US parties, the difference between a McCain administration and an Obama administration are drastic. One might even decriminalize a particular herb! The other will, without doubt, continue to incarcerate non-violent users of said herb; and do so at unprecedented rates.
