Shopping in Calgary...
I went shopping today in Calgary. The great thing about buying things here is that there is no provincial sales tax! That saves 7.5%, which doesn't sound like a lot, but I bought a Sony MP3/CD/tuner thingy from Future Shop today, which saved me about $12CAD in taxes. I also got a digital camera, so I can take photos in France (and Europe) and post them on my website.
It sounds like the Seattle meeting is going ahead! A bunch of assistants from all over Washington state, who'll be working all over France next year, are planning on meeting in Seattle at a French bakery (Le Panier). I'm planning on heading down, even though it's a 3 hour drive each way. It should be a lot of fun, and it'll be great to meet some people.
