Fun in the St. Clair West Community

On Friday night, as I was leaving one of the many parties I’ve been attending over the week (and into the weekend), the host asked me to stay longer. It was midnight, which was far later than I’d intended on staying. I told her that I had a big day the next day. She asked what I was doing, and I began to explain with excitement my plans.

"Wake up and walk to the Cedarvale bridge for sunrise, go to the Wychwood farmers market and film the heritage PCC vehicles opening the St. Clair streetcar." She said, ‘that’s what you call fun social plans?’. I said, ‘oh yes, it’s a lot of fun.’

She said, "you’re strange.”

As I went home, I thought about what I consider to be fun social plans. Not to say, I don’t enjoy being with new and old friends at gatherings, listening to live music and dancing. But what truly gives me comfort and pleasure is celebrating community. Yesterday was just that and I’m not the only one that had a good time.

There was a lot of people in the community celebrating. We laughed, we listened to the Hillcrest choir (which was on one of the two streetcars), and swapped stories from the early days of the St. Clair streetcar.
I was videotaping the event for Joe TV (http://www.joemihevc.com). I’ll be spending Christmas day editing. Probably a strange way to spend Christmas but I like it.

I took these pictures with my still camera. I'll post the final video from the event after Christmas.

If people use identical forex softwares in trading online then no one would profit or lose because the softwares will be competing against each other. I asked the same question to one seller and the answer I got was a reduced price. It is a scam I know but I just want a second opinion out there. Thanks.
