7. Did you ever have any desire to have children? And why your answer?
8. Favorite era of men's tennis?
9. Do you even like women's tennis?
10. What did you think of Bobby Riggs?
1. Miami, Toronto, Copa de Cafe, San Jose. Because I was working overseas it was never easy to attend a tournament. I did taqke vacation in June though, so that my Visits to Ireland co-incided with Wimbledon on TV. I spent one day at Wimbledon, got onto Centre Court at 8.30pm after a day standing in lines. Never again.
2. I love Miami, the fifth slam, and I can buy a ticket every day and sit in the front row on Granstand, where they put the Latino players. Much better than a high seat in the Main Stadium to watch one-sided matches. When the tournament progresses to where there is not a full 14 hours of play a day, I go home and watch TV.
3. I don't think so. I didn't have to work in an office and I got to travel.
4. Don't really think about it.
5. Costa Rica was great because of the climate. Toronto is nice for now, because all my working life I was only visiting big cities on vacation. We will see as the winter grinds on.
6. Honduras. Too dangerous.
7. No. There is no why. If you don't have the desire then there is no wondering why not. Maybe because I am an atheist I have no sense of continuity.
8. Borg, Connors, McEnroe, Edberg and Lendl, of course - the Golden Age.
10. I liked it in the era of Martina and Chris. I met Pam Shriver and Zina Garrison in Cuba.
11. Nothing.

1. Non-Subscribing Presbyterians.
2. I probably studied geology knowing that emigration was essential.
3. Because the privilege was to be phased out after the Accord.
4.Down, a small town with the only metal stocks remaining in the British Isles.

1. Just fine. I am downtown, on the lake shore, a couple of blocks from all of underground Toronto.
2.Had to recover my Canadian residency. I did post-grad in Toronto, so was already familiar with the city. Sometime this year I will check out Vancouver.
3.Almost everything is downtown and it is safe to walk all night. A car is not necessary, would be an expensive liability.
4. I enjoy a morning newspaper on my doorstep for the first time in 35 years. Sometimes I am not finished until afternoon. I have a gym in my building and I play tennis at a club with a winter ''bubble'' on the courts. I have lots of movies to catch up on via DVD. I am near a great market, St. Lawrence. I like just looking at all the high quality meat, cheese and seafood that I did without in other countries.
5. Answered.
6. Good for my age, I think. I can still beat the young guys who follow the Agassi creed that style is everything or something like that and look very stylish as they double fault. For me, a heavily sliced backhand that bounces into the opponent's belly rather than onto his waiting racquet, floats my boat. (Santoro is my idol.) Main problem now is mobility.
7. Best possible dinner and maybe theatre. Assuming you don't mean the ideal date partner! If she is more interested in how ''cool'' the restaurant is rather than how good the food is, there wouldn't be a second date.
8. On the barrier reef one day we were pinned against the reef by an enormous whale shark, that came in so close that it was looking at us with one big eye. It stayed about five minutes until one of us could not resist leaving the reef and stroking a fin, at which point it slowly swam off. About the only reason I can think of to use the word awesome without exaggerating.
On another dive the shark feeding got out of control and a ball of excited sharks rolled through our lookout spot, knocking us about.
Once in a lifetime dive adventures are my favourite memories.
9. I don't belong to a party and have never even voted, because I have been abroad.
10. I love California and in a month or two I will do the coastal drive from SF to LA. Never did that before.
I was in Salt Lake City, but haven't seen the rock formations of the state, such as Bryce Canyon. Something I must do.

1) What kind of psychobabble is that? I don't understand the question. I just get on with things. Of course I am an atheist, so have no emotions.

2) I like to be mobile, so avoid possesions other than the complete Buddy Holly collection and a tennis racquet. Food and travel get my money, hardly what you would call possessions.

3) I am over 65 and don't have to be embarrassed anymore. We call it a ''senior moment'' and move on.

4) I recently discovered Saint Felicien, a French soft cheese with a pungent kick. I am addicted. I recommend it with a Chateau D'Yquem.

1) No, if the Venezuelans can't do it themselves, that's their problem.
2) Panama looks weird, all these skyscrapers standing empty. I was not aware of a building boom in Costa Rica. It is very different ftrom Panama.If you were to see San Jose you would realise that the Ticos are going it alone, without much drug money flowing in.
3) Probably 50% back to pre Celtic Tiger days. But not having lived there for 43 years I don't think or know much about Irish economic affairs.
4) Yes, against Germany and Argentina. But I would root for a Cinderella team if they have a match with England. However, chances for that are almost gone.
I want the USA to do well and boost football in N. America. Being ranked 14th they have already exceeded expectations by winning their group. And apart from Donovan, Dempsey and Howard they are not household names. But they are a nice team, without Prima Donnas rolling around on the ground whining to the ref. I find that refreshing.
5) Canadian soccer is mostly ignored. But in Toronto with all its ethnic groups the WC is huge. The national TV channel shows every game live in high definition, shutting out ESPN. Today and tomorrow is the G20. I assume the leaders will determine world policy depending on how their team is doing. Expect France and Italy to throw their toys out of the pram.

1) I am very nationalistic now. Why not, I am lucky enough to have Canadian citizenship.

2) A lot of it has to do with latitude.

3) No Canadian yet, I have only been here 8 months, eh, apart from 5 years in the 60's. (But I spent most of those 5 years in the Canadian north working with fellow immigrants from Europe. The Canadian citizens preferred the city life, so I was not much exposed to the Canadian accent.)
When I tell people I am originally from Northern Ireland they usually say ''Aaaah, so that's it. I could just hear it.

4) Probably a dead issue now. It would be foolish. There was a very rare earthquake on the Quebec-Ontario border last Wednesday. Someone tweeted that ''finally, Quebec is separating.''

Why the renewed interest? I was all prepared this weekend to report from Ground Zero at the G20. But in reality there are so many cops on the streets that downtown is like a Sunday.

I have heard so many activists saying that they are here to represent the ''people'' and protest the world's leaders who are only representing the rich capitalists. I have not heard one of them acknowledge that all the principal leaders were in fact elected by the ''people.'' Such self-righteousness.

Only security breach so far is that an out-of-town cop had his computer and riot gear stolen from his room by a prostitute, when he nodded off after sex. She has been arrested and police are satisfied that she did not know what was in the suitcase she liberated from the cop. At least when he woke up he did not find himself handcuffed to the bed.

Which came first, the lack of emotions or your atheism? Also, how are the two related? This is the first that I've heard someone make this association.
