  • 06:03 Havana is much nicer than Shediac. But no beach. 25 km to beach. twitpic.com/rafrs #
  • 06:05 Old Havana is breathtaking. Save yourself a trip to Spain. twitpic.com/rafz8 #
  • 06:09 Couldn't ask for more from the Havana beach (playa de l'est is 25 km from city center). twitpic.com/rag9g #
  • 06:11 And then back to land of why? Aka, Toronto. twitpic.com/ragg6 #
  • 06:14 I think Cubans could teach us a thing or two about priorities in the context of car bon emissions. #
  • 06:17 If you need a break from the extreems of materialism (or religion) this Christmas holiday, then Cuba is for you (as it is the oposite). #
  • 06:24 Ironic that I organised, entirely via Internet, transportation, food and lodging to a country that doesn't allow citizens to surf web (Cuba) #
  • 06:29 Quick, picture is from which European country? Nope, 100 km south of Key West. twitpic.com/rahue #
  • 06:40 Havanna has urban parks and squares, we have food courts and parking lots. #
  • 06:45 You know yo u have taken communism too far when nobody can afford bicycles. #Cuba #
  • 06:48 I assumed in the land of free university education that more folks would speek English. Wrong. Havana is like Saguenay, Qc, on that front. #
  • 06:52 At 100% of salary, it would take the average Cuban 4 years to buy an unlocked $1000 iPhone. #
  • 06:54 ...On the other hand, Cuba has verry few homeless and free medicare. #
  • 07:00 Most Canadians wouldn't agree with the laws, but it is hard not to admire the apparent order in Cuba. Seems crime free. Felt extreemly safe. #

  • 11:24 The Atlantic Canada coverage area of the new Bell/Telus HSPA 3G network is amazing. Buy (Kindle) books while at the beach! #
  • 11:30 @kateheartfield It is a citizenship guide. By the time they read this, they have been here at least 3 years (usually way more). #
  • 11:37 @kateheartfield Exactly.The guide is for potential Conservative party voters. The guide that is required is for immigrants a s they deplane. #
  • 15:43 @MinJK Aren't they keeping you in power? #
  • 15:46 @charris0n Except in Manitoba, increasing electricity consumption will come from non-renewable sources such as coal, gas and oil. #
  • 15:48 You know you live in a Canadian basement in November when you need the lights on at a quarter to 4PM, simply to type on a computer. #
  • 15:51 I'm gaining a tone of weight reading about the terrible food they have at Cuban resorts. "Fried hot dogs" ??? #
  • 04:1 7 I declare Selection 12 cans to currently being the cheapest beer at a pre tax and deposit $00384 per ml. (incl. $0.05/can deposit penalty) #
  • 04:19 I'm trying to boost my quality of life by taking advantage of our high (relative to the UK and US) dollar. Beer is not the way to go. #
  • 04:30 Sober, I just tried to make a call from the calculator app on my iPhone. #
  • 04:35 When you live in Moncton and your credit card is from a credit union in BC, 4AM is when payments are posted to your account. Now you know. #
  • 04:38 In Canada, there are two institutions that give secured credit cards to former bankrupts like me:People's Bank in BC and Capital One. #

  • 12:29 The average Canadian makes more in one hour than the average Cuban makes in a month! And yet for tourists, Cuba ain't cheap. #
  • 12:34 The averageAmerican Motel 6 is cheaper than most rural Cuban hotels. #
  • 12:38 Rogers Internet price drop for 25 and 50mbs is proof they misjudged apetite for speed. Make it cheaper, not faster! #
  • 12:45 I've just been rejected for a secured, "garanteed approval" Capital One card. I have 5 digit savings. Go figure. #
  • 12:49 I responded to the garanteed approval Capital One card offer because it had free damage waiver for rental cars. Usually a gold card pe rk. #
  • 12:52 Most Cubans live rent free as they own, but can't sell, their home. A nice perk if your monthly income is $11. #
  • 12:57 School kids in Moncton are getting vaccinated this week. I can finally resume daiting.... Joking! (inspired by Curb Your Enthousiasm) #
  • 23:56 Does the Dieppe Council not read my Tweets? Put two languages, your sign can be twice as big. Problem solved. Moncton should do that. #
  • 00:02 @propelict In my experience, people can't find the freeking address bar! A good domain is worthless. Just make sure Google works for you. #

  • 11:35 Just finished reading "Fear" in the November issue of Wired. Article implies that Jim Carrey is not a doctor or medical expert. #
  • 11:38 If motocycle helmets were illegal, wouldn't we save lives since fewer people would ride motorcycles because of more obvious danger? #
  • 11:51 Hey Apple, you ain't "green" if you fly 20kg iMacs into New Brunswick all the way from Shanghai! #
  • 11:57 Using Google Streetsview really reduces Florida envy. Except Miami Beach and Saint Au gustine, swamps and ugly sprawl. I'd rather freeze. #
  • 12:27 @Gasport How do you track the flight (or were you joking)? #
  • 12:36 @McCainBlogette If you really cared, you'd post more cleavage shots. #
  • 12:40 My elderly neihbour talks to his dog in the hallway. Most anoying. Should I kill the dog or the neighbour? #
  • 12:45 ... The dog is quiet. But, presumably, neighbour would be quiet in hallway without the dog. But if I kill the dog he might get an other one. #
  • 12:47 ... But if I kill the neighbour, his dog might bark and whine next to body, perhaps for days... #
  • 12:49 I thought it might be overkill, but I guess I will have to kill dog AND neighbour. Right to uninterupted daytime sleep surperseeds others. #

  • 19:32 The Turks and Caicos under UK colonial rule since August. If they still want into Canada, I think they should join bilingual New Brunswick. #
  • 19:37 Do you ever do a Tweet search and then forget and then are amazed that all the folks you are following are like reading your mind? I do. :-) #
  • 19:41 I find it ironic when booking a trip that Cuba has, by far, the lowest tax (even when factoring in the $25 CUC cash airport fee) #
  • 19:42 I need to become a polygami st. I'd save a fortune on cruises. #
  • 19:43 Do you think EI will believe me if I tell then I had a job interview in Cuba? #
  • 19:48 How is serving in the Armed Forces "an excellent career choice". Risk you life for call centre salary in a job you can't quit!? #
  • 19:52 @Skivensky People driving alone aren't making global warming contributing babies. It's the couples parking you need to worry about. :-) #
  • 19:57 "Make it mandatory and enforce it that each and every immigrant knows basic English or French when entering Canada" I agree 100% #
  • 20:01 Remember, NOT getting the H1N1 vaccine is part of the fight against global warming. (And improving the gene pool.) #
  • 20:11 In the guide, they forgot to mention topless bathing is OK @CBCMontreal Government unveils new citizenship guidebook url4.eu/kDWr #
  • 20:14 I'm learning a lot about in the new citizenship guide. Apparently, it is important to get a job! I was going to try $270/month welfare. #
  • 20:17 Cash tipping should be illegal like in France or Australia @CBCMontreal Quebec tackles restaurant tax evasion url4.eu/kDt0 #
  • 20:23 This is what Canada's immigration policy should be: If I can't live in your country, you can' live in mine. Open your borders to Canadians. #
  • 20:47 New citizen guide: "Under barbaric practices, I see that male genital mutilation is still considered to be perfectly fine." (VancouverDave) #
  • 20:54 Ok, so you could win 7 million with $2 or 15 million with $5. Which should I go for? #
  • 20:57 My plan to win the lottery instead of finding a job isn't working so good. So far, I have won $6. Still better than Sitel if you ask me. ;-) #

  • 08:35 @ChrisInKW East Germans were migrating to the west already (via Hungary). The actuall removal of the wall was the story. That took weeks. #
  • 08:39 I refuse to visit countries that require pricey "visitor cards" (Mexico, Cuba) or charge exorbitant departure taxes (Venuzuella). #
  • 08:42 Technically, GPS enabled iPhones are banned from Cuba because GPS devices are banned. They take loosing yourself seriously over there. #
  • 08:47 Ironic that my favorite communication device (my iPhone) was made in a country where communication is restricted (China). #

  • 19:29 Canadian Health insurace in Cuba: $20 per week. In Dominican Republic: $80. Democracy has a price (to visitors). #
  • 19:33 Canadians don't need a passport to fly to the Dominican Republic. Passport: $20 per year. #
  • 19:42 Even though I live in Moncton, I almost booked a NY City-Saint John-Ny City cruise for Summer 2010. It was that cheap. #
