Toronto at sunrise...

I took a different route into town today because I needed to pick up a co-worker.
Now I know what it is like to drive on streetcar tracks.. Not fun. But, worth the detour because I came up on Front street from the west and saw the city center in a beautiful sunrise glow. I did not take a picture of it because I was driving. My passenger took a pic with her cell phone. I will pick her up again tomorrow and hand her my camera and hope for another sunrise like that one.
I love working at the convention center. I wish this conference would go on for a lot longer. We knew nothing about anything when we started training on Friday and now we're getting the hang of it. By the time the conference ends this Friday we will have it down pat.

I miss my parents, family, friends and old co-workers, and I even miss my old job.
I get so busy though I forget to contact them. My email still needs fixing so I can do that. My new email address (for those who have my old email address) just replace @videotron.ca with @roger.com and you have my new email address. Then send me an email so I can add you to my new address book. Thanks. That will save me some data entry.

Congrats Amanda on your promotion. I think you will make an excellent supervisor! Say hi to the gang for me. I am so glad Annie enjoyed her Mariah Carey concert.I can still hear her counting down the days...
Did they get Tracey an assistant Manager yet? Tell Tracey they pay very well for bilingual people in TO and she should come down.
Wait, why don't you all come down. My sister can find you all jobs.

I once had an unfortunate incident on the street car tracks while driving in TO. I was a teenager, following directions from my Mom, she told me to turn left. It was a one-way street. Not pretty at all. I no longer listen when she talks to me driving anymore ;)

I love the sunrise downtown in any big city, reminds you how small everything truly is.

Hey maybe your co worker could email you the sunrise picture?

Mellowlee good idea.

It was ok, I was quick and turned at the first side street, but there was a second or too of sheer panic.
