These two clocks face each other across the corner of Drummond and Sainte-Catherine Streets downtown. I prefer the older clock from 1910, but unfortunately, it does not work. The newer one on the Bank of Montreal branch works, but lacks the soul of its neighbour.

I love public clocks, I wish there were more in the city as I don't wear a watch. My favourite is the digital clock on De Maisonneuve between Bishop and Crescent that displays the time and temperature. You can see it from blocks away and is so handy!

You really need a cell phone. It would also make it easier for me to reach you.

I hate cell phones with a passion. My phone was supposed to be hooked up yesterday but as of this morning I still have nothing.
