    Well, I'm only 2nd gen American... Grandma & Grandpa Goodwin were both Canadian... one from Nova Scotia... the other from further West (same Province)... so, I used to love talking with them both, eh?

    One of my ancestors even sang one of the songs on "Songs of the Miramichi"... a documentary about Canadian folk songs...

    BTW, Candian Tire RULES! The exchange rate was pretty good when I was up in Hamilton, ONT in Jan 06... so, I went NUTS at a CT store!

    I can also remember having really great donuts somewhere... but the name escapes me at the moment...

    I visited Canada quite a bit when I was in the USAF. Beutiful country, lot's of friendly folks, and some good beer. (It's an acquired taste PK.)

    Oh god I've tried those. They'll knock you to next week. We occasionally get Fin Du Monde smuggled down here as well being somewhat close to Quebec.

    Okay please explain what all that stuff is. Especially the sports referenced one. How do you pronounce that? H-o-o-k-e-y-e,H-i-c-k-e-y,H-u-c-k-e-y??? Oh by the way. In Ohio we travel on highways, and freeways!

    Growing up in Michigan is about as close to being canadian as it gets, and I don't get half the jokes, but then again, I am blonde.
