    Kalamata! I mean "Kalimera", Carmanah! My one and only parasailing experience was at Penticton one summer long ago. I also met a tour group from Japan there and learned my first words of Japanese from them, including "oy-shee" (delicious)

    Scorpions, eh? Perhaps a jaunt to Vancouver might be a better idea after all! Nice name though...is this where all the misdirected top-secret mail for The Pentagon ends up?
