What city in the world do you want to visit most?
Sung to the tune of “It’s Howdy Doody Time.” Here’s the original to refresh your memory:
Get yours before it’s late
So don’t you hesitate.
That cancer is a bitch
But polyps you can ditch
There’s no excuse for you
Come on, Let’s go!
Some of you may know that in the offline world, I run a home boarding business for dogs. Yes, it’s a regular Canine Commune, a “Happy Hound Vacation Destination”, so to speak. The dogs have the run of my house and, while I stipulate they must be house trained, as you can imagine, accidents do happen. Dogs are also not shy about throwing up, any time, anywhere, but mostly on carpet. (That must be an unwritten rule in the dog world!) It has been my quest, for years now, to find the perfect solution for pet odours and stains. There are dozens of products on the market and of those, the enzyme-based ones work fairly well, but from my experience, are not 100% effective. This is particularly troublesome when it comes to urine scent. If it’s not completely eliminated, another dog will pick up on it and may decide to leave its own mark there. Imagine this with multiple dogs in residence!
“The computer is a wonderful invention!”
If anybody said that to me seven years ago, they would have received a derisive sneer,
along with my standard diatribe:
“Who needs computers?
“I’ve gotten along fine without one until now.”
“Waste of time.”
Those of us residing in tourist areas generally take for granted all the sights to explore and rarely go, except when shepherding visitors around. I live in the suburbs of one of the greatest cities in the world, namely Toronto, Canada’s largest metropolis [fourth largest in North America, behind New York, Los Angeles and Chicago]. Toronto has been named “best place to live” in an index of city rankings compiled by The Economist. [More points of interest HERE.] We go there for concerts, museum exhibits and sometimes shopping and dining, but sightseeing? Not in years! For the recent occasion of my 60th birthday, we had tickets for a Bob Seger concert [photos and music HERE], and, since it was on a Saturday night, decided to stay the weekend. Although it was cold, there was no snow on the ground and the winds held off, for a change. Ideal for a stroll through the area on a lazy Sunday.
