A FAVOURITE OF MINE BY CANADA’S ‘TROOPER’ – “WE’RE HERE FOR A GOOD TIME (NOT A LONG TIME)”

A very good friend of mine
Told me something the other day
I’d like to pass it on to you
‘Cause I believe what he said to be true
He said

We’re here for a good time
Not a long time (not a long time)
So have a good time
The sun can’t shine every day

And the sun is shinin’
In this rainy city
And the sun is shinin’
Oh, isn’t it a pity
And every year, has it’s share of tears
And every now and then it’s gotta rain

We’re here for a good time
Not a long time
So have a good time
The sun can’t shine every day
And the sun is shinin’
In . . .

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC HAS NAMED TORONTO ONE OF THE BEST CITIES TO VISIT IN 2019

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC’s “Best Trips Issue” has named TORONTO one of the magazine’s seven cities worth visiting in 2019. The editors feature annually destinations that can “inspire, change perspectives, and connect with cultures, places and ideas that matter in the world.” <The Cities below>

– DAKAR, Senegal
– SALVADOR, Brazil
– KANSAS CITY, USA
– TORONTO, Canada
– MATERA, Italy
– PERTH, Australia
– MEXICO CITY, Mexico NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC on our city – “Nearly half of TORONTO’s residents are immigrants and more than 200 languages are spoken in Canada’s largest city. A multicultural energy infuses everything from the old-school stylings of Drake to the new HXOUSE emerging artists’ incubator co-founded by singer The Weeknd and his creative director, La Mar Taylor.

“This creative mix also inspires new restaurants such as Kojin at Momofuku, with its Colombian-inspired, Ontario-sourced dishes sizzling on an Argentine-style grill, and the TORONTO Biennial of Art, debuting in 2019. Take a deep dive into the city’s diversity by exploring some of its 140 neighborhoods.”

SAYS GOOP – “Just an hour-long flight from JFK, Canada’s largest city is both refreshingly urban and small town, with its network of singular neighborhoods making up what is arguably one of the most underrated destinations around.”“There’s opportunity for everything, be it let-your-hair-down revelry, a world-class food crawl, or a quick change of scenery for vacation-drunk kiddos. Every street corner is occupied by a cozy café, microbrewery, sustainability-focused restaurant, or any one of the many gems that make up TORONTO’s culture scene.”While the long winters are glacial at best, the whole place hums with the kind of subzero-induced energy that makes spending the bulk of your time indoors a blast.”

THANKS, GOOP!

ON INT’L SNOW LEOPARD DAY AT TORONTO ZOO, QUAIL & PUMPKINS ARE ON THE MENU

The TORONTO ZOO’s snow leopards Ena, Mylo, and Kita are shown from 9:30am to 4:30pm daily.

One source estimates there are 4,500 to 7,500 snow leopards in the wild and other sources say that number is between 2,500 and 10,000. It is very difficult to get scientifically accurate numbers, as these cats are so elusive and currently, only 2% of their habitat has been thoroughly studied. Threats to snow leopards include poaching, habitat loss, farmer retaliation kills, and more recently groups of wild mastiff dogs.

ON “WEED WEDNESDAY” OCTOBER 17TH POT WAS LEGALIZED – AND THE ‘HORSE’ LEFT THE BARN

Prime Minister JUSTIN TRUDEAU promised to do this three years ago when he won a majority government. Today, his most notable campaign promise has been enacted. Newfoundland and Labrador started things off at 12:01 am (Newfoundland Time) and it spread from there through all seven time zones, east to west, north to south.

Finally, Donald Trump was kicked out of the headlines.
