    A visit to Casa Loma

    On our recent trip to Toronto, we visited Casa Loma. This castle style home was built by Sir Henry Mills who brought Hydro-Electricity to the city of Toronto. You can read more about the house here:

    Always look forward to seeing your smiling face Mohammad. Looks like quite a place, haven't been there myself, but my parents were there recently and got some good pics of it too.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Looks like a cool place to tour. Lots of amazing woodwork. I like the shower, too. Looks like it has more than the typical two valves. Any idea what's up with that?

    You and Miriam are both looking good, too. Tell her I said hello.

    Hey! I thought I was smiling. I guess I am gonna have to try even harder.

    Vaughn, I think the contraption sprayed water from an almost U-shaped array of pipes. A modern version of it is pretty common in luxury homes these days. Number 9 on the following website explains this shower:

    Ed, the duration of my stay in Toronto was rather short. I am sure there will be other trips in the future as my inlaws live there. I am putting visiting your shop on my things to do while in Toronto list.
