Dear Jahanshah,

Enjoy yourself thoroughly in London ... In the late 1970's, I spent three (3) years in London as a student :)

Having lived all over the U.S. for the past thirty (30) years, from New York to San Francisco,  Los Angeles, Chicago, etc., I am yet to find a city that has so much to offer as London does :)

BTW, Thank you for these delightful photos,

Embarrassed to admit that I have lived on this side of the pond for 35 years and never knew this beautiful market existed!  Thanks for sharing. This market is as beautiful as the floating flower market in Amsterdam.

Dear JJ,

Your flower exhibition was both valuable and artistic. Eenjoy your visit to London!

Beautiful collection of flowers. My favorites are cacti in #12 and #13 'cause they are beautiful, resilient and low-maintenance......usually cacti don't die on you easily!

You should have cared

There is no Canadian, except for the First Nation people. The rest of the population consists of either invaders, like the Brits and the French, or refugees like Iranians, Pakistanis, Jamaicans, etc.

You were born, I assume, as an Iranian, and you happened to become a Canadian-Iranian citizen of Canada. Now if you had a "caring" king, you could have died as an Iranian, at your own home. 


I didn't get it McCoy. Not

I didn't get it McCoy. Not that I really care.

"unlike us, the Canadians!"

Please, keep it hyphenated. It'll come handy, one day.


I noticed that it's still

I noticed that it's still pretty cold out there. Or maybe they just don't know what cold means, unlike us, the Canadians!

بدون گل ها، بدون زیبائی و عطر فرح بخش آنان،تحمل این دنیای کثیف غیر ممکن بود.
