Introductions anyone ? January 02, 2006 10:41 AM

It takes me a while but sometimes things do get through my concrete skull and I just realized that I haven't provided a place for members to introduce themselves. DUUUHHH !
So if your a newbie, oldbie or inbetweenbie please feel free to say HI and provide a little something about yourself if you feel like it.

anonymous OK, I'll start January 02, 2006 10:58 AM

I'm fairly new here, just joined a couple of months ago. I'm just hanging out for now, seeing who's who and what's what. I live in Langley B.C. just east of Vancouver, love outdoor stuff, went kayaking yesterday, and I'm giving myself the award of being the first kayak on the lake this year, only because no one else was there to argue with me. Causes...... spotted owl, rainforest, vancouver island marmott (they need some help).  Likes...... patient people,  dislikes... people who call you idiot when your opinion differs..... I've un-joined groups already......  People like me need everyone to introduce themselves, 'cause I dont really know anyone yet.......... chat soon  Norm  [report anonymous abuse]

Well, I can call myself oldbie after almost 2 years of Care2. Most of you know me from the Vancouver Island group (where I co-hosted until I realised I was talking alone on the forum). I am not Canadian but I love Canada and I like to think that some day I will visit this wonderful country. Why am I on Care2? Because I like wildlife. I am one of the few that came to this site not because of the e-cards, but because I searched for it on Google. I also own a spirituality group that keeps me online everyday. Another nice thing about Care2 are the photo albums. I have a big passion for landscapes, clouds and nature. I saw that Norm un-joined some groups already. I did this too and now I keep a low profile. It is entertaining for me to see people arguing, especially on the Feedback group. Reading them helps me to develop my knowledge of English and I have a good laugh at the same time. I never start an argument with them because I don’t have time to waste and because I got used to different points of view. To be my friend there is no need to introduce yourself. I know all my friends so well and those who refuse to talk are deleted in a couple of months. I think I said enough about myself. If you want to know more, just ask (I’m still on vacation and have plenty of time to lose). Now, I will go to my corner...  [ send green star]
 
I'm your host... January 02, 2006 4:55 PM

...and theres nothing you can do about it
Thanks guys for starting the intros...I didn't want to be first because I'm really really shy. 
I live in northern Ontario, Canada. One of the few cities built around a natural lake. Toronto is a four or five hour drive away, depending on the size of your foot. We used to be the nickel mining capital of the world but now we are the retail capital of northern Ontario. Better or worse ? Who knows.
I'm six foot 4 inches. One hundred and nintey pounds of pure muscle. Black wavy hair, blue eyes and the president of Mensa. When I wake up its different. 
I tend to ramble on too much in my posts so I don't post too much on other sites. But this on is mine and I'm allowed. 
I have joined and left a lot of other sites because of all the hoopala.  Life's too short to get all stressed out. 
I'm sure I won't be the most interesting to post in this thread but I'm going for the silly award.  
Hi and welcome to everyone.

Hello to the gentleman from Northern Ontario, I am from Northern ontario also, 3 1/2 hours outside of Toronto. But, not in a city in a small town.  I love the North.  We are a tourist town so, we make hay when the sun shines.

From a future Canadian province January 03, 2006 1:45 PM

Hi, everybody,

My name is ken and I'm from the future Canadian province of Ohio.  I've visited Canada a few times and have really liked it every time.  The people I've met have all been great (well, except for one guy) and the Canadian government makes the US's look like a Hobbsean state of nature.  I'm trying to figure out why this is, why our two cultures are so similar in so many ways, but so different in the important matters.  I'm also here simply for good conversation.


 [ send green star]
 
anonymous Ken January 04, 2006 9:39 PM

So if I'm a Canadian living in the province of Ohio, would I still say  "eh" .  Thanks for the kind words about Canada.  I was in Washington visiting a friend for a couple of days, and I was treated very well, had no complaints at all.  So maybe we just have a positive outlook.  ??   So, when you come to visit, dont forget to make a west coast stop..... We're absolutely the best.

visit west January 05, 2006 6:41 AM

I'd like that. I've never been out to the Northwest Coast. I'd very much like to... studied the indigenous tribes of the area a little some years ago and would like to do a bit more that way. People have told me good things about Vancouver, BC in general, and the marine wildlife in the pond there.


I heard also some years ago that the Trans- Railway is back. That's appealing. The airlines these days make you feel like a caged chicken, one of a hundred, flying down the highway, strapped to the back of a pickup truck on the way to a drumstick factory. (There's that positive attitude you were talking about.) The NW coast is a long way no matter how, so I might as well enjoy it, right? The train might be a chance, too, to practice my "eh?", eh? Then, back in Ohio, I could start spreading the "eh" around here. Don't think Whomland Skittishy would like that. It's not in the dictionary, so it's legality would be highly questionable.


I appreciate the words about a positive outlook. I used to do that, but then I guess I started giving too much credence to reality. Bad plan. Illegitimi carborundum. Dust to dust. The only Phoenix I see has wings composed of funny bones.

proper introduction January 17, 2006 8:03 AM

a late good morning to everyone. I have been sticking my occasional comments in since last April, finding this group on a random search, being one who appreciates Canada and for some reason enjoys John's sense of humor. I mostly stay on the fringes, do not like to rage about my or anyone elses political beliefs, but do enjoy the company of those with a like mind (which can be hard to find locally....that might be a good thing).

I own a quilting/fabric store, which stays pretty quiet. giving me time to catch up on mail and groups

i live in Kentucky now, have also lived in Wisconsin and Florida. Have visited Winnipeg, love snowshoing in the Whiteshell, spending weekends in Toronto and southern Ontario & looking forward to visiting western Canada within the next couple of years.

looking forward to getting to know everyone better

Post deleted January 30, 2006 9:31 AM

Hi everyone. I have deleted a post from this thread by Norm S. Being the gentleman that he is, he requested I do so. In his post, where he was saying hi to Earth M (also Stacy, Christina and Sunshine) he inadvertently mentioned the name of a school where Eath M might have children attending.
It is unfortunate but due to the size of Care2 there have been times when idiots have harrassed people concerning their families. Because this is an open group we must be careful. If you want to post personal info about yourselves thats fine but be careful what you say about others you might or might not know.

anonymous sure ! February 13, 2006 6:06 AM

hi John, hi every one,

am new to the group. I saw " Oh Canada " and  I joined. Very simple. I don´t wanna start to write about Canada or the reasons why I joined.  It would sound too sweet. Say, I´ve travelled a lot, whatever one understands by this. I haven´t seen as much as many a folk has; certainly not, but I never have a camera with me when travelling, in a nutshell,  I   LINGER   AND   MINGLE... I never have time to photograph. Coz I wanna linger, touch and mingle... I don´t wanna find out whether there´s  a spot on the globe more beautiful, more interesting. Got hooked on Canada, where my heart  ( stuff ! heart, no ! I should say my brain...) has  been a detainee since the day I discovered this country. And above all, friendly folks out there, can´t recall " vice versa ", and if at all, well the very few negative things, they don´t linger long in the mind or in the memory, COZ  FEW . That´s right !.. This,  with the risk to sound however in whoever´s eyes... Everybody makes their own experience in life , right ?

Now John,  thanks for saying it loud ! Namely, " I´m your host and there´s nothing you can do about it " . Good stuff; I leave it there though...

To me , it´s about time. I´ve lived in Germany for quite a long time. I´s born in Tunisia, this is the Gateway to the African continent. Tunisia has been colonized 9 times like no other country in the world ( they say ), I only can imagine, coz of its geografic situation. Amongst others, the Arabs and the French who today share the life style there. One hour to the next Italian Island " Trappani " , by hovercraft. And in nice weather we can see Italy and Malta. Many Italians live there....And, the Romans destroyed Carthage ( 10 min. from the Capital Tunis ) to call it " Africa Vetus ", and that was in 146 BC, today the name of the whole continent )). I trust, I was not supposed to just name the country where I come from. Thought a few words... Thanks. 

Until another time hope in a post, good bye for now every one !

hi Norm,

just the other day, true, I read this in a magazine: " those who call someone  idiot, coz their opinion is different from theirs, don´t know what a miror looks like ".

Been to Langley, been to Van. I wrote a song about Vancouver. Can´t call myself  Musician, but great stuff. Great stuff, coz was given the lift to write, unlike when things are twisted out .

Bye.

certainly " mirror " not miror. In case the word miror exists too. I don´t doubt the least though that one cannot misunderstand it, but this is me, simply and time and again I need to correct typing errors. ( a quirk, one could say. Anyway...)

My name is Colleen and I am in Winnipeg, Manitoba, so actually Norm, you aren't alone.  Technically, I think I can say that we are east or west, but most Manitobans consider themselves to be in Western Canada.

What else?  I love the outdoors, bird watching and photography.  Even though we have wicked winters in Manitoba, I am somehow drawn to the prairie.  We have the best summers and wonderful beaches.  

I am a substitute teacher and hope to have my own classroom one day before I get old enough to retire.   

I look forward to meeting you all.

I've reading tons of information about your country, but there is somethings that I can't find. For example: what's your typical food? your national sport? your lifestyle?

Yes, Whiterock is a nice place to see, I live close, and go there on a nice day to put my kayak in the ocean and have some fun, or just sit by the ocean and sip on a cold beer...... ( a Canadian passtime by the way)

Some other  places you'd like are Grouse Mountain, Stanley Park, Gasstown, Chinatown........ there is lots to see here.  If you'd like, I can send some links, or maps.

anonymous Rodrigo May 07, 2006 7:17 PM

Well, first, no worries about the English level, you are doing just fine.

I would say, in my own opinion, that there is no distinct Canadian food. We are such a mix of cultures that there is something here to make anyone feel at home. For example, where I live, just near Vancouver B.C. I can go to a number of restaurants within walking distance and have Greek, Italian, Mexican food. In the bit city, the choices are absolutely endless.

Where are you planning to move to ??  Which part of Canada.   Let us all know, I'm sure there will be someone from what ever area you want.

Dear Norm,

Thank you very much for all your kindness and your friend's invitation.

Answering to your questions, I'm not deicided yet because I'm interested and with more experience in wildlife and exotic pet medice. But I don't know were can I be most useful to Canada. In a medium or big city?

In the Canadian's Government website appeared that most newcomers to Canada tend to settle in the three biggest cities (Toronto, Montréal & Vancouver). But many newcomers and Canadians choose to live in the medium-sized cities (Halifax, Québec City, Ottawa, London, Windsor, Sudbury, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton & Victoria.) which they feel have as much to offer as the larger cities with a better qualy of life. 

What do you think about it? I mean the advice to live in medium-sized city?

So sorry but I never been in Canada and I feel a bit afraid to live just along and without friends. In the past I already have lived for years alone and far from home, but inside Chile. So at the risk to seeming ridiculous... It's hard to make friends in Canada? 

Warm regards,

Rodrigo

Hello, Quebecoise! July 08, 2006 3:19 AM

I was up in Montreal last year and loved it there, wanted to catch the Jazz Fest last week, but now U$onions need a passport-- not to get into Canada, but to come back home! I never got around to applying for one. It's a little scary and trying, that bureaucracy stuff. So I missed the Fest. Hopefully '07 will be better. But I did catch the Canada Day edition of Vinyl Cafe. Anybody else hear it? Who was that female singer who did all the Joni Mitchell? She was fantastic! Has she got any good CDs out? Like a lot of concerned Americans, emigration is always (since '00) in the back of my mind. But that would be retreat and maybe there's something here worth saving. Then there's the bureaucracy thing again, filing all the papers. So I was thinking of just reincarnating Canadian. That way someone else would have to do the paperwork for me. Question: Here in the US when the "unemployment rate" is cited, they're really talking about the percentage of the workforce that has lost jobs in the last six months, which is quite different from the actual percentage of the workforce that are unemployed. How does Canada figure its unemployment rate?  [ send green star]

Hello, My name is Ariel and I currently live in Colorado - US. I am looking seriously into moving to Vancouver and naturally I thought "hey - is there a Care2 group of Canadians I can join?" And I found this great group. Looking forward to hearing more about the interesting goings on of Canada. And of course any insights that anyone comes across about Vancouver and the process of relocating I am intersted in.

I am currently looking into all the paperwork to be all legal, and searching for jobs etc. Which brings up - how is Canada fairing with the financial markets?  I don't hear about Canada in all the world news about markets and economy.

Well that should be enough for now...don't want to "chat" your virtual ears off

Hi!
I'm not Canadian, but I like to think of myself as an honorary one. Every year my husband and I spend a week in a Canadian city because we LOVE Canada Day! Our anniversary is on June 29th, and we take advantage of it being so close to Canada Day. Last year we were in Whistler, BC. We've also been to Vancouver and Victoria more times than I can count. We've been to Tofino and Uclulet, Salt Spring Island, Banff, Lake Louise, and a lot of other BC cities that I can't think of right now! Glad to be a part of this group!

anonymous Greetings and Salutations June 07, 2011 9:47 PM

Greetings, my name is Lynne.  I live in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.  For almost 45 years, I lived in Toronto.  I do prefer Oshawa much more.

I am a proud Canadian.  I am just not proud of my Government and the imbecilic antics that occur in Ottawa and at Queen's Park in Toronto. 

Feel free to add me as a friend.  My passions are child welfare protection, animal protection, the environment and social international issues.

I am disabled so I have discovered that the Internet allows me to still advocate for others even though I am unable to get out and about.

By the way, I don't like Timmies {ducks} I prefer Country Style.

Love, Hugs and Blessings to all.

anonymous Reality check here January 06, 2012 10:51 PM

Ok Hello fellow Canadians and wanna be's :0) no worries my links are relative to Americans too, we have a very similar problem and remedy, like all remedies, takes some getting used to..we have a big problem folks. We know it, but do we all know what the problem actually is ? Most often not. I am in Calgary Oilberta. for oh close to 50 years maybe longer between out of town jobs on rigs,mines, logging, or just adventure. Right now I'm retired, and have recently found a very informative site and fellow activist, also in the gravy years. I have info on bill board page just go there and read the facts then decide what to do about it if anything. I guess it is a matter of how much you love your country, either side the medicine line. Here are some links to a easier read, but not easy to accept, I have years of researching the thing so I see it clearly..hope you do too. We have to see all the facts to judge it..anything less is prejudging and helps no one, especially Canadians as a whole. Quite urgent to know this..or the new anthem will be Nooo Caaannnaaaddaaa...truly..if the links are not live just copy and paste to browser..be amazed. http://www.detaxcanada.org/carta.htm ok the web page is better and is all in one place. just read the items then go back to links from top down..you will get the picture. You can email Eldon after you have read all the facts and links..we gettin old ya see.. Been login in here for quite a while, winters..close out when spring arrives. Haven't had a chance to test the links on my bill board..This is not new just well..heh..Canadians seem to like eating lawn grass more than participating in our remedy. peace out but please do study the facts..understand what happened, how and why, who.. then get angry and fight back..soon..:0)
