Hi from Winnipeg, Manitoba

I've been a Pentax user for 5 years now having started with a K10 and now use the K5. I have accumulated a few lenses but always room for more in my bag.

Welcome aboard. I was in Winnipeg in the late 80's doing an equipment install for two weeks. Happened to be in February. Two questions:

1) Before going I was told that the prettiest girls in Canada lived in Winnipeg. I found that to be true. Is it still true?

2) I was warned that red lights didn't mean much. Just count to five before even trying to enter an intersection after your light turns green. I found that true too. Is this still true?

Great planetarium and museum there. Only NHL game I ever saw too. Half the people were rooting for the Canadiens. Awesome city.

Thanks all for the greetings. I think Winnipeg is a great city which is why I have lived here for the last 35 years. 1. I think could be true but I haven't been in other cities lately to judge that. 2, Generally most people stop at red lights, but there is the occasional jerk who tries to rush through a long orange light so it is always good to keep alert.
