Kef, I have been to Niagra Falls. Was amazing and beautiful. My sister and I went to Canada for 2 weeks. We went to Winnipeg, a small town called Kenora where we canoed on a lake with no other person in sight (lake is such a massive understatement!), saw a bear in the backyard of the house we were staying in, and saw the Gold medal women's ice hockey team play (for just 5 dollars). We spent most of our time in Toronto, and went to Niagra by bus. We did the boat trip and stood by the side of the water. . . the temptation to through yourself in was compelling. It's hard to explain, but I can understand why so many people want to go over the falls. We also visited Kingston too.

I had a fabulous holiday, can you tell it was one of my best

It's repeated on Sunday at 9:15 for anyone who wants to watch it with sound.

I was definitely dismayed to find Nigel in the opening shot.    I love my own dogs to bits but don't expect them to offer anyone useful guidance about how to manage my garden.


thanks missed it .
