Toronto Zoo

Tronster and the love of his life, Sunshine, always enjoy animals.In September of 2016, we made a special trip to Toronto to visit some friends.Also none as “distant cousins”.Regardless, while we were in town, we grabbed a “City Pass”which included a trip to the local zoo.
Toronto is about an 8 hour drive for my family.Mainly because I obey speed limits.Some have made the trip faster, however, I prefer to stay away from traffic court in other states. The zoo is about 700 acres of animals and exhibits for people to visit.Sunshine and I always enjoy the Pandas.They play around in their habitat and always look happy.The part that makes me happy, is the smile on Sunshine’s face when she sees the enchanted animals.

Teleworking

I wanted to go through some of the good things, bad things, and challenges I have faced with telework.  
The Pros for me may not be the same for you, but you can mention them in the comments if you like. …
