On the road back home!


My road trip this time was great, got to meet lots of people and well... despite the heat and humidity, I got a bit of shopping in also.
While riding on the lovely TTC subway, I noticed the following.... can you actually imagine that chewing gum is such a great problem in Toronto, that there is a TTC campaign to "teach" people to "properly dispose" of their used gum. I wouldn't believe it unless I saw it too, so here is the evidence! It even has the "steps" of how to spit it out, wrap in paper (provided on the sign too) & put it in the garbage.
My hotel was wonderful, had a great view of the Toronto downtown, all the way out to Toronto island. Photo was taken with my blackberry, so quality is just so so, but believe me, it was great being up above it all.



So... as I am posting this, I am sitting in the Toronto airport relaxing in the VIP lounge until my flight in a couple of hours. I enjoy slowing the pace of rushing to the airport and then sitting in the waiting area outside the gates, while everyone is packed with little room to move or breathe.

The cost of the lounge is about the same as a couple of coffees and a sandwich from the airport vendors... and the perks are much more. Hot meal at my leisure, beverages to make everyone happy (smiles), comfy chairs, free wifi and lots of expresso and lattes.

So here I sit, my ebay offerings for tonight are scheduled as I will be in flight at my normal posting times. So here is a sneak peek at tonight's items!
