Sadly these were not vacations where they actually learnt anything of the world as most seemed to have been taken in Club Med resorts.

I was so appaulled by their behaviour, I considered walking out of dinner. But then I had paid for it, and I am from Yorkshire orginally.
Eeee bah gum good old yorkshire lassie eh.. Thats where we are from, East Yorkshire. What part were you from?? ....

We visited Vancouver in 2003 so we know what its like there, and yes its excellent!

If anyone fancies catching up for a coffee and a chat let me know and we can share some thoughts. Would also be really interested to hear from Electricians as this is my main occupation.

Best Wishes!!

Do they give free greenshield stamps or lottery tickets when you move to ''Oakville''.........Seems almost the whole population of G.B. is moving there.
I hear there are lots of Brits and Brit Pubs with Brit food............but was thinking wouldnt it cost less money and stress to just Stay here????
Lets all move to oakville
I hear its really great
Lets all have a fry up
Filling up our plate
British pubs and British food
British beer there to
Come on now admit it
It was made for me and you
They tell me its in Canada
Now that just cant be true
Everyone who lives here sounds like me and you
Say hooray for Oakville
We are on way
A little bit of Gb....Thousands of miles away.................
Now please dont get offended
By my little verse.........wherever you go in Canada I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST/

We're already making plans to go over there next year for a family trip so I'm really looking forward to that.
I've spent many hours since yesterday browsing the Community guides, Realty leaflets and now trawling through about 2 hrs of video. It's all great!
He brought home some local papers too. When I've finished with it all I'll pass it on to you.

Having recently broken the Tank (Cistern) for my en suite, I don't really think you would want to employ me as a bathroom fitter. Thanks for the offer though
