Re: Where are you and why are you there?

Came to Ottawa 50 years ago and never left. Great place for bringing up a family. I worked in the high tech industry, retired from General Dynamics 21 years ago.

Re: What shocked you when you landed?

I came in July 1963 and it was 40C too warm for our English summer clothing. Back then A/C was not the norm and the Drawing Office I worked in was like a steam bath.

Never get into any such online buying. Only buy from known companies online and even that rarely.

Re: SCAM BAITING

I check my Yahoo scam folder and scan the senders and if I don't recognise them I delete them. Not interested in geting into a dialog with them, waste of MY time.
