Miami's weather sucks. So does Las Vegas'.
Vegas is great if you have AC.

That's because it is.


If you disagree, I can't hear you over the sound of ice cubes rattling in my glass as I float in my pool.

Canada and Australia are the top two destinations for Britons to immigrate. It's no stretch to think that its UK citizens that are looking.

You Canadians are pathetically laughable

I'd rather live in Saskatoon that Las Vegas. What a hellhole.

I am sure he can.

But I doubt he can cross-country ski 15 minutes from his house to a chalet in wooded hills and have a candle lit fondue dinner by a wood burning stove.

Variety is the spice of life to me.

Different strokes for different folks.

True but I bet you spend more time at your pool in the summer than you do cross country skiing to a chalet in winter

True, but that's partly because my kids are off from school and activities in the summer.

It's not the case for some of my friends who are out skiing in Gatineau Park after dinner several nights a week.
