I’d Buy That…London

I’d Buy That…London

When In London a few of the items I pick up are as follows: – Muffins, Scones, and Crumpets (I have a few friends who prefer actual English muffins, scone, and crumpets to Canadian ones.  In Canada the products tend to be crisper and a little stale tasting my friends feel.) – Desserts ( I have often brought Treacle(…)

NYC in September

I was supposed to be in NY just before the anniversary of September 11 this year but we ended up stuck in Toronto, Canada instead.  I can’t Say I’m not happy to have not been in NY that day. It is a hard day for anyone who works in the airlines, firefighters, police, EMS, New(…)

Los Angeles…. Again

Back in LA again. This time I met up with a friend who lives outside of LA in the Orange County area. He came by my hotel and picked me up and we decided to head to the Hermosa beach area. There were a few parking spots in 15 minute paid street parking but none(…)

Ottawa

Summer has hit Canada’s capital city the streets are filled with visitors and outdoor cafés are in full swing. The only problem with most of the outdoor restaurants on Sparks street is that most seem to have the shish pipes. These are hookah type pipes people smoke some sort of herb in (not tobacco or(…)
