Is there any 2005 Canadians out there ?

Hello fellow Canadians,

There are some old threads out there for Canadians that I didn't get to participate in, so I'm starting another one for 2005.

Any other Canadians out there that want to share their story ?

I live in Victoria BC and I have two cats and have been involved in a DYI house building project with DH for over a year.

I saw in the old threads that a few people from Victoria wanted to meet, did that ever happen ?

The kitchen forum is my favourite thread.

Sugar and Spice,
I am a Victorian for nigh on 10 years now. As you know the kitchen forum is my favorite as well. Let me know if you find any others out there. ;o) Rose

Yep - London.

Halfway Windsor/Detroit - Toronto.

Farm kid, southern ON - kept out of school in 1940, after War started, to drive tractor for seeding.

Dad had breathing problems, moved to farm in SK, had 40 years of fine health out there, bro. recently retired from the farm.

Overseas missionary for a few years, helping a few refugees in Korea put their lives back together after that horrible war. Son born there.

Clergyperson (liberal Prot.) for a number of years, married a U.S. girl, we parted a number of years ago when clergy didn't do that - didn't help career.

Personal financial advisor for a number of years, now enjoying good health in (more or less) retirement.

Learning how money works is an excellent hobby - that pays well.

So spend time on Saving and Household Finance forum - but mainly on KT.

Have a great autumn weekend, all.

Here's another Canadian girl! I'm Laurel and I live in Southern Ontario (a couple of hours from Ole Joyful)in a little village near Guelph Ontario. I've lived in the same house from almost 28 years with DH. We have one daughter, SIL, 2 grandchildren and 1 Shih Tzu named Sadie. I love to garden, mosaic, garden art, reading, and of course, the KT. I visit my Mom in London often.
