Which Canadian city has the highest household income?

Stumbled across this Web site.

(Hint: it's not Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver or Calgary, but it is in Edmonton).

Last week- Mr. Mom

Kate was in Hong Kong all last week on business trip for training so for awhile I was playing Mr. Mom.

She went to Shenzhen on the weekend for shopping and got hassled by the customs folks. She was in the foreigner line and was told to get in the citizen line. Also she was told to write "China Taiwan" on whatever form she had to fill out. Sheesh... how annoying.

She was telling me how much Hong Kong has improved since the last time she was there. That's what happens when the government has a vision and invests toward that vision. Come on Taiwan. It's your turn.

On Canadians according to William Shatner

Need to pay to read entire thing (I didn’t), but am so in agreement with this statement:

There's something to be said for the niceness and politeness of Canadians, saying thank you and being concerned with a stranger, being helpful and all that. By the same token, I would wish for Canada and my fellow Canadians to include in that politeness a kind of drive that occasionally results in a little ass kicking.

Adjusting to life back in Taiwan (4 states in 2 weeks)

Four states in 2 weeks:

Las Vegas, Nevada- US Sales Kick Off.

Cupertino, California- US BU visit.

Braintree, Boston, Massachusetts- Training.

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida- Visting my sister.


Seeing my sister and her husband (first time in 10 years).

Seeing my sister's 3 kids (first time).

Seeing an NHL game (first time ever, Florida 4 - NJ 0, Joe got an assist).

Meeting and eating with Gary Roberts after the game (first time).

Seeing my friend Kate (first time in 9 years).

Eating at the oldest US restaurant located in Boston (first time).

Seeing a movie in a movie theatre (first time in... can't remember, maybe half year).

Despite many highlights, way too much time spent in airports and going through security (don't know how many times I had to pull my notebook out of its case).

Flight back was the worst. Around 20 hours on a plane not including time in airports.
