    Good luck SD. At least you are getting out & who knows you might stay in Canada. I hear its a beautiful country but I've never been.
    Be sure to read 'The Tenderness Of Wolves' before you go, and of course 'Call Of The Wild' :wink2:

    Still letting the USA paperwork wend it's merry way through the ever so slow system but have to get outta here!! So going to Alberta in the meantime.

    Although if I like it I may end up staying - can keep house as a holiday home, rent it out long term or sell it. We'll see, one thing I cannot do is wait here any longer because of the age of my eldest child, his education is important & the Canadian system is not dissimilar to that in the USA.

    The way it's going he'll be in University before we even get a look in at our greencards!! Worse still he might even reach over 21 - which will exclude him from getting a greencard with the rest of us. So we needed a plan "B" -& we got one!

    We have really great friends in Calgary & they helped me find a job & will assist with housing etc etc etc.

    Welcome to Canada. Do yourself a huge favour and go to Marks and Spencer before you leave, buy their best wool undergarments, both upper and lower. Trust me, you will need them. And,you will be ever thankful you have them. Winter is unforgiving. Spring, summer and fall are wonderful.

    Just read that you and RGN1 are heading to Canada. Can't say I blame you! Lots and lots of luck with your moving and all the preperations that go with it. This is my first mid-western winter. We have had over 17 inches of snow this week, an ice storm and it reached -10 FARENHEIT for crying out loud this week. Brrrr..... And, I am supposed to be in Florida...took a wrong turn somewhere!

    Nova Scotia is just beautiful in the spring and summer, you should be a the end of the cold when you get there, or at least closer to it.

    By the time that you get unpacked, you will be reading to plant your garden.
