Like my dog, I just love roaming around the many festivals taking in the smells, the sounds, the sights and sharing a jumbo ear topped with ice cream. :-)'

All I Need to Know about Life I Learned from My Dog
?If you stare at someone long enough, eventually you'll get what you want.
?If at first you don't succeed, beg.
?Don't go out without I.D.
?Be direct with people; let them know exactly how you feel by peeing on their shoes.
?Be aware of when to hold your tongue, and when to use it.
?Leave room in your schedule for a good nap.
?Always give people a friendly greeting.
?When you do something wrong, always take responsibility for it (as soon as you're dragged out from under the bed).
?If it's not wet and sloppy, it's not a real kiss.
Who would have thought that my dog was so wise.
And remember to "Always be humble and kind"
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Where is the best place to go on a date? Well if the company is right then anyplace will be a great date. It should be someplace where you can chat without having lots of distractions and as several people have told me, “it should have more than one exit”, come to think of it, maybe that’s why my last date didn’t come back from the washroom. However, I believe if you spend awhile getting to know each other via email & then phone, when the time comes for the face-to-face ones only regret at the end of the date should be, what happened to the time? A good date is like a horses kick, both go by way to fast. While a bad date can be like watching the crops grow this past July, painfully slow and depressing.
So some great first date choices, in my opinion. How about a coffee or tea and a little fresh baked something at the Rockton Berry Farm in Rockton or the Dutch Mill in Waterdown. If one wants to be more daring and feels confident they are not meeting Ted Bundy, which I am not and I am not an Al Bundy either. Then one may look at going for a walk at the RBG, check out the renewed rock garden with a thermos of something warm or cool to drink and a little dessert and some nuts for the hungry squirrels that are getting ready to raise a family. Or maybe a stroll along the Harbour Front Trail and Bay Front Park at dawn with a fresh bagel and a tea or coffee from the Great Canadian Bagel in Dundas.
