ive lived here in oakville for 4 years and although housing is more expensive than most other areas it is a great place to live.

That'll be the second time in three years that the Judges has tried to go upmarket. I wonder where all my old cronies have gone now. I couldn't stand the Queens.

a good friend of mine (from dartford) has recently taken his electricians courses, he found them easy, so he can work legally on his own, although his british trade allows him to work in the industry at a large factory in toronto

If you like that, Toronto also has strip joints in which the dancers keep their clothes on and ethnic restaurants where only Yorkshire pudding is served.

Agreed that the Kings is much nicer. I was really stuffed when we moved up to the College Park earlier. The only two places within walking distance were Monaghans and Time Out Mickeys, both of which are Sports Bars (yuk).

Time Out Mickeys, also known as Pitchers, is on Sixth Line just South of Upper Middle. I've never been in anywhere on Kerr, although I've heard that Roxy's gets a little interesting at times.

Only very, very occasionally. Have you tried the (relatively) new Niblick? Boy that place gets packed.

I've just noticed who your work for. We sold our house through RLP.
