• Why can't I submit an answer to Words & Wordplay?

    I've been trying for 20 minutes, have removed practically all punctuation; they're still on coffee break! Meanwhile, I'm answering in another category. And why do they suggest I post my question to Sports--Hockey?

  • What's with Yahoo repeatedly blocking my answer with their coffee breaks?

    I answered the same question (re Alan Paton's "Cry, the Beloved Country") four times, over the course of four hours, and each time got notified they were on coffee break when I went to submit it! I'm frustrated, aggravated and fed up! I would imagine the person who asked the question, who's had no replies, may be a tad frustrated as well. show more

  • 1960s: Avenue Road hotel, cocktail lounge Summerhill?

    Can anyone tell me the name of a hotel on the east side of Avenue Rd in the block north of Bloor? Don't know when it opened but it was definitely there through most of the 1960s. And a very exotic cocktail lounge/restaurant located near Summerhill subway station, East Asian with palm trees & bridges ... maybe "Ports of Call"?

    Did any of the books you loved as a child disappear before you could introduce them to your own children? What were they? Any idea why they were banned?

    My question regarding Drysdale's location was answered almost immediately, and exactly the information I needed. I don't seem to be able to rate it 'BEST" ... because there's only one answer?

  • Toronto Centre 1911, 87 Elm: What was this? (146 elderly men and women 'inmates')?

    Census 1911 lists Arthur McLaughlin, wife and two young sons; 146 inmates; no live-in servants at this address (now a heritage site). Might it have been a nursing home (perish the thought)?
