    Sleeping Beauty works for the TTC

    by  • 1/15/2010 • Toronto • 2 Comments

    Sent the following followup email to the Toronto Transit Commission after hearing nothing for nearly two weeks on a report that I filed early this year. They have you fill out a web form, and list explicit instructions to send an email to followup@ttc.ca if you don’t hear back. I wonder how frequently anyone hears […]

    How Many Skeptics Are There In Toronto

    by  • 9/19/2009 • skeptic, Toronto • 2 Comments

    Last month, there were no “Skeptics In The Pub” style events being held in Toronto. I’m still new to town, and was surprised by this apparent oversight in a city with a reputation for having a strong skeptical community, let alone a city with a couple formal skeptics groups. Last week, I was rather happy […]

    Balcony panorama attempt 1

    Click on the thumbnail if you want to see out ghost balcony a bit more clearly… This is just a first quick panorama generated with Calico 1.5 (3 dotted number upgrades since I used it last, and 4 since I registered it) and about a dozen shots. I’m going to play a bit with some […]

    Research Findings on Toronto

    by  • 7/24/2009 • Toronto • 0 Comments

    For the most part, Toronto’s people are outwardly polite. People bump into you on an overcrowded train, and they look you in the eye and say “Sorry” or some other expression of compassion for you having nearly spilled a sip of coffee. There are no signs warning transit users on streetcars or subway (I haven’t […]

    New Address in Toronto

    by  • 7/3/2009 • Toronto • 1 Comment

    It’s small, but it’s right downtown with an easy to remember address. It’s super cheap too, at $21 per month, though it’s going to be a bitch moving in, as it’s less than one cubic foot in size. We have a box setup at a downtown UPS Store / Mailboxes Etc. shop so that we […]

    Toronto hotel booked

    by  • 6/23/2009 • Toronto • 0 Comments

    I was looking at lastminutetravel.com and priceline.com and all the other cut-rate sites to find the cheapest place possible so that we could have a room for the weekend while we drive around looking for an apartment. Hopefully we’ll find a place with immediate availability so that we can sleep THERE on the night of […]

    Moving option

    by  • 6/11/2009 • Toronto • 1 Comment

    Well, looks like National car rentals will do one-way rentals from Halifax to Toronto. Trouble is, there’s nothing really moving-friendly in there, possibly by design. No Minivans or full sized SUVs. $200 for a week long car rental though is plenty to get the mammals to Toronto, without so many possessions. Maybe we’ll have to […]
