    While you are at it,please throw in the difference between vet and lieutenant.

    Guys ,
    Here in Toronto,We are blessed by the fact that the temperature is supposed to raise above freezing point. The phenomenon hitting here on Wed around mid day. The warm wave is called to be with us up to the year-changing day.the temperatur will go up to 6 degrees and hovering there for quite a bit.
    If have any intention of visiting Toronto. It is time folks
    We r experiencing monies 10 with windchill feels like – 20
    And ,need less to say Toronto is always windy mainly because it is not suronded by any mountain range.
    Bad news for mountaineers.
    Literally, either you turn around clock wise or counter-clockwise no see any montain ,not even a hill.
    It is all flat , that is the reason it is windy like all the time
    I believe next week, people will take to streets not for protest of any kind :)) just to enjoy the unseasonable warm weather.
    It is my perophecy , may never pan out:)

  5. Peter Says:

    Life is jumping to unknown,what if there is no unknown left to jump in.
    How is all the festivity these days fellas,
    Stuffing your face did you ?
    I m still on a steady diet of human suffering breaking off with minutes of horrible terror ,trauma
    Consequently, I m loosing weight drastically.
    I m loosing all the sublime beauty:)))
    I m shrinking to the point of demise:))) Shakespeare way of writing:)
    I used to have hallow legs eating like a pig!
    Allas ,those good old days are past and never return.
    It is ashamed that no one can recoup the time.

    I can’t believe that it is the best time of the year to have fun. Instead, I am going through a dry spell.
    What make things worse , I m a foodie ,yet I must stick to this stupid diet while everybodyelse stuffing their face.
    It couldn’t be worse.
