I haven't used an alarm in years either. I think it is a sign I am getting old. Still my husband needs his alarm everyday. It drives me crazy because he is not quick to turn it off. I think his problem is that he doesn't get up at the same time each day. He travels a lot and sometimes gets up in the middle of the night to catch an early plane. Then when he is in town he gets up later. Add to that all the time zone adjustments and his body is totally messed up.

Why an exercise ball? Is it more comfortable?

As long as you can hear rhythm in music, you can learn to dance.

I too got my driver`s lincense when I was 28. I grew up in Montreal. and there no one bother with cars. We hopped the metro (the subway) when we needed to go someplace or walked.

In fact, I don`t think many of my friends got their licenses until they were in their 20s. I know none of my classmates at McGill had cars.

DH never studied music, but he sings well and is good at drumming (bongos, not a full set like in a band).

A few years ago we went to Montreal for vacation. We stayed in a Hotel near McGill and walked around campus some. We lived in Washington DC for several years and the Metro in Montreal was exactly like the Metro in DC. It was very funny because we were completely comfortable going all around town on Metro, even explaining it to people that seemed confused. I can see how with the underground malls and the metro you wouldn't need to drive in Montreal.

The food in Montreal was incredible, especially the baked goods. You must miss it if you don't live there anymore. I know that our whole family just loved every restaurant we stopped at in both Montreal and Quebec City.

For me, the exercise ball is more comfortable.

The blimp that I rode on is/was tethered in Florida at Pompano Beach (I think). My parents lived in Ft Lauderdale at the time and somehow they got the tickets. It doesn't go very high, maybe 1000 ft, so you can see everything below pretty well. We were flying over the InterCoastal Waterway, and we could see the Atlantic too. The coolest thing is that when they attain the desired altitude they turn off the engines for a while so its silent. You're just floating along hearing a bit of wind noise. The other passengers even stopped talking so we could all enjoy it.

Montreal is a great place to visit but to live, no.
