    I'd love to go to Gros Morne, too. Seems to be amazing.

    Congratulations on your citizenship, @Mrs.Anteater ! The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is fantastic and it'd be good to meet you in Winnipeg! We have some other interesting historical sites here, too. I could arrange a weekend tour with friends.

    Liturgy

    If I ever become a Minister, that's what I envision as being my style. I cannot test it at the assisted-living residence for obvious reasons, though.

    Is the BIBLE is THE WORD of GOD? In 7 minutes - Dr. Ravi Zacharias at University of Illinois

    Is the BIBLE is THE WORD of GOD? In 7 minutes - Dr. Ravi Zacharias at University of Illinois

    Room For All

    All my windows have nets and I don't go out after 9 and before it's completely dark. So far I've just had one mosquito bite. During the daylight, no mosquitoes at all.

    Housing

    I am totally against the regulation or control of rent rates. The most obvious result is a lack of interest of investors in building rent complexes, and a lack of incentive to update or even take good care of the existing ones. The best answer in this case is public policy focusing on people who...

    Room For All

    Thanks @Carolla ! I love ceilings, too. Yours sound beautiful! I lived in a 1930s apartment in Rio some years ago which also had hand-plastered ceilings and crown mouldings, as our new home also does. But this apartment in Rio looked grandiose, as the whole building has been designed by and for...
