    You may have problems being understood if you mix with younger folk! I assume you are still flying the Union Jack and singing God Save the King .

    East of this, west of that
    I think it's time that I reveal that I am 207 years old, and the only O'Keefe I know is Eugene O'Keefe who works at the bank but keeps prattling on (like everyone else) about buying a brewery. Eugene needs to put up or shut up.

    Toronto will always be York
    Bloor will always be that other brewer, but with the crazy eyes who can't even spell his name without adding that infuriating "e", and that street on the edge of nowhere near the old cemetery will always be Tollgate Road
    Montgomery's will always be my favourite tavern en route back from fishing, until those idiots started shooting at each other and ruined it for everyone
    Charles Berczy will always be Moll Junior, which frankly everyone can agree on how to pronounce
    Armstrong, Beere and Hime will be always be the three most annoying men in Toronto, and they only got more tiresome when they bought that stupid camera

    And why wouldn't I be flying the Union Jack and singing God Save the King?

    It seems like most mid-to-large cities in North America built a 2000+ civic auditorium in the 60s or 70s, often as part of a larger civic renewal project. How does the Sony Centre rank compared to its North American counterparts?

    However spelt or spelled, I wish they’d display automobiles in there. Why can’t the Toronto auto show be in there?
