I used to go ice skating when I was young, William, but was never very proficient. I wouldn't do it now - too afraid of breaking a bone or two. ;-)

William Sutherland has replied to Amelia Heath
I did it a lot when I was younger so I'm kind of fortunate that when I put on skates, I still have the necessary balance. I agree, no one wants to break a bone and even when you don't, the falls are embarrassing!

John FitzGerald has replied to William Sutherland
A lot of tourists who don't skate too well skate at Toronto City Hall and have a great time trying to maintain their balance. I see the atmosphere at Rockefeller Centre is a lot like the atmosphere at Toronto City Hall -- lots of people enjoying themselves. Engaging photos and an interesting treatment.

It's too bad I have to include this image to mar the joy in my photo because of the New Year's Day terrorist attack in Turkey. In this image, compiled from free clip art, an image of the blowing dandelion seeds purchased from Shutterstock (which resemble New Year's Day fireworks and serve as a symbol of remembrance) and a photo I took in NYC on January 1, 2017 I included the universal symbol of impotence. Those that join ISIS are impotent -- that's why they feel compelled to violate human rights, suppress individuality and freedom, subjugate women and slaughter defenseless innocents under their sick ideology. It's the only way these weak cowards can feel strong and a sense of masculinity. As they ruined New Year's Day that should be filled with love and unity, with renewed hopes for peace and tolerance, strong condemnation and rejection of their sick ideology is the only way to respond to these depraved cowards. While we're one world and one humanity united against their sick ideology, they are one world driven by the fires of hell. It's time they stop pretending to be Muslims and express their true thoughts which are expressed by their actions -- "to hell with Muhammed and Allah!" Too bad if these impotent apostates with their low self-esteem have their fragile feelings hurt. After all, they didn't care about ruining New Year's Day for the billions of decent people that inhabit every corner of the earth.

exactement !
des monstres qui haïssent la vie, l'amour et la beauté ne peuvent être que des impuissants.
la religion est amour. eux sont hors religion, hors humanité. ce sont des nuisibles sataniques.

cette affiche est une pure réussite.
j'ajoute ma voix pour dire FUCK ISIS !!!

merci pour ces explications william...

Thank you for your courage and willingness to speak out against this unspeakably evil group. I admire your courage and willingness to speak out during this time of fear since they are the only way humanity (good) will prevail against this evil! Silence and fear will lead to defeat and genocide on a scale we've never imagined and a new dark ages where hell will be a place on earth.

je le crains aussi...
mais quand l'homme comprendra-t-il que la peur n'évite pas le danger ???
il faut les éradiquer avant qu'il ne soit trop tard : seule leur enveloppe est humaine, comme un déguisement... mais ne dit-on pas que le diable a 1000 visages ?
ça se vérifie là, chez ces terroristes

I agree Malik and that's why I keep pointing it out. That's why they also blow up mosques and slaughter Muslims. It's life itself they hate and want to exterminate.

There are Human Beings in this World, but imo -- they are not human .. not at all.

Sad thing - when they are gone, somebody with as much hate in their being will probably replace them.

I can only hope that someday this hate will be gone forever and life will be valued since it is so short and precious. Thank you for your stand against ISIS.
