    I have a good friend who's from that area, Caslon. It's so cute and funny when he says 'aboot.' If I were you, I'd move there simply to hear 'aboot' left and right.

    I think the operative word in your response is "from"! ... icon_sad.gif

    it's really nice there... i wouldn't call it the center of urban life though. it has a club, well one that i've been to. good restaurants, theater, 5$ parking tickets (often cheaper to take the ticket than pay the meter... unless they've changed that)... on your way there, stop by montreal... we're the better island.

    They certainly have a friendly gay community. Firecat is going next week for househunting. ...and somebody will meet him at the airport and then they have his lodgings all arranged too.

    Can you say "fresh meat"? ..... icon_lol.gif

    make sure he doesn't get lost at the airport. he'll prbably be met at the "out" gate. make sure he doesn't get that confused with the "in" gate.

    I did a road trip in 84 to PEI, I think part of our trip was by ferry as well. My maternal grandmother (bless her, drunk that she was) was born and raised on PEI. It is absolutely gorgeous but desolate. Not many people, but friendly those that are there. If you like lobster, caught that day or yesterday, and lots of locally grown veggies, you're in for a treat.

    Famous Potatoes, and they got Cable too.
    Sounds like a good license plate slogan.

    PEI:
    Its better than being a Newfie.

    And you were putting down Thunder Bay in that other thread.

    Caslon: Who is this Firecat?
    And I suspect that West Virginia or Arkansas would be worse...
