Default hey Kiwigser,

no that mssg was most not ment for u not at all, and I apologise if it seemed that way, there were a few prior posts that my comments were directed too but when I attempted to post in direct responce I was not allowed,, maybe cause I am seen as a "newie!'

I appreciate your reply, yes I think we have had everyones poor luck-which is a shame and has sadly tainted our view of this beatiful country.

As for the moderator who indicated that people who moan may be less inteligent, respectfully I remind you that the origin of this topic was to ask for peoples input and not for other members to belittle others. I clearly stated the opinion given was our experience-which was asked for.

Please do not preach about occulational/lifestyle balance I am more than aware of this, for you or anyone else to indicate otherwise shows such bad manners. A teacher you may be, but I hope you teach in a more objective manner.
It's good to see that someone actually bothers to respond because I don't, not anymore at least. But while I'm at it, just one more thing to say to the original poster and that is despite the claim to being an open and multicultural society, you need to be aware that there's also an insidious under-current of intolerance to people who look or sound different (or worse both), the exception maybe to those who speak with a posh accent. However, the laid back lifestyle is great if that's what you're after.

Good or bad...come on - it is all a manner of perspective. Isn't it?

I just hope everyone finds the place they want to be....

You realise, we will get our wrists slap (or worse) by the moderators for nattering. Any way, this is the best time of the year, not so hot, calm seas, its a terrible life.

You know the best part about it....back in the part of Canada (we called home). They have had 10-12 snow storms of 20-30cm each this winter (about 1 or 2 every week since the start of Jan 2011).

When we left Dec 2010...everyone was saying ohhhh you will miss winter...I laughed...will see...will see

Sure enough....they all loved the first storm/snowfall of the year...then around the 2nd week of Jan they cry/moan/bpitch about how freaking sick they are of snow/ice/shoveling/find car parking spots/someone stole my shoveled out car spot/sanding driveway/re-sanding cause ice melted over sand/ice/so cold the car won't start/icy sidewalks/can't park on the street tonight snowstorm tonight/using a hatchet to get down to pavement to get up the driveway/snow bringing down trees across the driveway.

We just laugh

And to top it off..this week they have had freezing rain...and I think another storm of freezing rain later this week....

Yep...we so miss winter in Canada
