Speaking of the didn't even take a week.

Hi Sedona. Been quite a while! I'm still getting settled in London but I have to say I like it here. It seems to me most people here are friendlier than In TO. Been a pretty good summer I'd say. A pity when the cold weather inevitably gets here. I used to go to the CNE years ago but eventually it just seemed like throwing good money down the drain.

Comment by Sedona on August 27, 2013 at 12:38pm

Just a quick hello, thought this forum was over, not many on it, and I joined the kitties forum today, no puter but i post as I can  hope all are enjoying their summer it does go to quickly and NOpe

no CNE for me, lots of other things going on coming up  

Gary: how do u like London then?  Sedona :)

Nice to be in the Caribbean!

Linda be careful what you eat at the CNE. I saw a few days ago at the Ex grounds quite a number of people got food poisoning eating some kind of super donut hamburger. Some had to go to the hospital!

Comment by Linda on August 25, 2013 at 4:04pm

Hi to all. It seems that there's is lots going on. Retirement, Laptops. mice. funerals and deaths. Nice to be in the Caribbean.


Is anyone going to the CNE, I understand that there are some Zoomer interests.

Gary.. congratulation  on your retirement. I retired on the 1. May 2013 but still very busy. Such unbelievable stories .S. Jackson  turned up after 13 days alive.

We recently got in my neighborhood a sort of Coffee Shop - named  'Tablespoon'  in the Caribbean [Trinidad] were I am presently residing. Enjoying my acquaintances, friends and visitors meet me there. Relaxing atmosphere.  Hope to be back for the beautiful autumn in Ontario.

Gary update is free and will happen Oct 18

Comment by Gary on August 23, 2013 at 9:09pm

Hi Alex. Yeah I'm getting there. Wish I didn't have to wait the 2yrs until I get the OAS but I'll get by.


I bought a laptop a week or so ago & it has win8 on it. Spent about 10 hours straight getting it set up and installing the programs I use but it's just like home now. Win 8.1 eh? Think I'll wait a bit to upgrade.


Looking like a really nice weekend here in London. Have to get out to enjoy it. Won't be too long before I'll likely be knee deep in snow!

Comment by alexander Mollison on August 23, 2013 at 6:34pm

 thanks gary, hope you are settling in to your retirement it tales a little adjusting too but you get there, I am now running windows8.1 better than 8 and its fun when you learn how to use it had both for about two years think oct 18 is the release date for windows8.1
