Back in TO

Back in Toronto after short road trip to the snowy northland of Ontario - running out of gas in the middle of nowhere found old country store in Hamer Bay for fillup - old mechanical pumps - after serving myself the guy indoors asked me "how much?" He rang up $30 when I said $38 - I then gave him the correct money - why is it so much nicer in the countryside?
Bought a copy of The Detroit News and Free Press which covers the opening of the Detroit Auto Show and the launch of the new Ford F-150 pickup truck. Ford are holding their breath hoping that the new truck, the top-selling vehicle in North America, finds favour with the public like its predecessor.
The paper also had a good feature on the growing use of biodiesel in North America plus "Tips to keep in mind when fishing on ice."
