Thanks to kodi and moolyn for organizng a delightful evening. What a pleasure it was to meet everyone.

A word of thanks to SallyCanuck, who told robjame and me about her trip to Canadian World War 1 and 2 battle sites. It was inspiring and deeply moving, a highlight of the evening. Mathieu, I didn't have enough time to talk with you, either. As a matter of fact, there were several others there that I didn't get to spend enough time with, so we have to do this again next year!

Katie_H, you have a good memory. By the way, if your ears were burning around 8:30 last night it was because a few of us were remarking that you are the best editor ever. Take a bow!

About the passes to the Museum of Inuit Art from Jana last night.

The museum is in the south west corner of the Queen's Quay Terminal at Harbourfront, and is open seven days a week, and is open from 10-6 Sunday to Wed, and open later on Thursday, Friday and SAturday.

The man in the picture is David Harris, president of the Museum. The "jana" who signed the inviations is Jana Schilder, who you met last night.

Enjoy the museum.

It was a pleasure meeting everyone last night.

I didn't get a pass and I'd love to have one. Is there anyway that I can ?

Hi everyone!!!

Great night - wish I didn't have to miss coffee - but great condo Moolyn, looking forward to your lakes trip report and can't wait to hear about Kodi's Argentine adventure and the Robjame's trip to France.

I second the thanks to Kodi and Moolyn for arranging a super night.

Happy travels everyone!!

Wish I could have been there, you guys - this particular GTG was full of coincidences from my point of view. It took place the very day I travelled back east from our home in BC - but I won't get to Toronto until next week. I'm in NY visiting my newest grandbaby, who is definitely worth visiting.

My first full day in Toronto will be celebrated (NOT) with a root canal procedure at my Toronto dentist's office. They generally put me to sleep for these things, so I've arranged for my cousin to pick me up and drive me back to my son's place. My cousin is Miriam Harris - stepmom of David Harris, who owns the Inuit Museum. She married David's dad after I introduced them - he is an old high-school chum.

A friend of mine used to say there are only 50 people in the world.

Meesthare, congratulations on the new baby. I'd say that's a pretty darn good reason to come east!!

As you can gather, the GTG was a success. SO funny about Teh Inuit museum. I really is a very small world.

Good luck on that darned root canal.

A very beautiful/handsome and elegant group of people!

Obviously you all had a wonderful GTG, thank you for sharing it with all of us. I hope you do have an annual GTG, I would think it would be an event you would all look forward to as you all look so happy and relaxed in the photos.

Hi guys - hope you have a great trip. If you read this before you go I remembered the name of that steak and frites place in Paris I was telling you about at the GTG.

It's called Relais de L'entrecote - there are only 2 locations of this restaurant - the one I've now been to 3 times is on the Rue St Benoit on the left bank, just off the Blvd St Germain. It is full of locals and has always been very busy. They only serve a salad, steak and frites with a dessert choice. You get half the steak and frites to start and then when you're ready they serve the other half piping hot!! There is a great mushroom based sauce on the steak - yummy!! Very reasonably priced also. I'll have a look at your blog when I get back from London - heading this Saturday morning!

k, unfortunately, it was last Sunday and I was busy and coulnd't make it. I'm sure it would have been fun.
When I had my Cairn Terriers and we'd go to their picnics. They'd have them all piped in by a piper. Quite moving to see a couple of hundred Cairns following the piper.

Hi there everyone,

Its exactly a week since we first all met each other !

Robjam and Kmowatt, wishing you both excellent adventures on your trips. RJ, great blog.
Kmowatt, you leave the day after my birthday which is on the 21st ! BA has a worldwide sale if you book before Sept 27th and I'm thinking of going to England in March next year. Before that, possibly a week in St. Martin this October.

Hi Kodi and Moolyn, do you know when the e-mail listing will be distributed to the GTG attendees ? I have some photos and show info to distribute to all.

I don't wish to appear to be too forward, but I would love to attend a GTG in Toronto. I've read about them occuring in other places, but not in Toronto. Can anyone offer a suggestion as to who I could contact about any future meetings. I live about 2 1/2 hours north of Toronto and do the drive to Toronto fairly frequently.

Hi teach,
I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say you'd be more than welcome at a Toronto GTG. I believe moolyn is collecting email addresses so she can notify people of the next one. It's [email protected]. Give her a shout and get your name on the list!
