I had a friend who was from Canada (Toronto) but lived here in the US. His friends used to find the funniest cards to send him for birthdays, etc. that ribbed him about being Canadian. The one I particularly remember showed a border station. The hut was manned on the US side by an American guard, and a mountie was manning the Canadian side. The US side of the hut had flowers blooming, birds singing and sun shining. The US guard was wearing shorts. The Canadian side of the same building was covered with snow, icicles were hanging from the eaves, a snow drift was up to the window and the Mountie, steam coming from his mouth and nostrils, was wearing a parka...

My friend said it was a fairly accurate perception of what people thought Canada was like... LOL

On Tuesday this week it was 28 degrees C (82 F)

On Wednesday we had a blizzard - I mean a whiteout. I couldn't see the building across the street!! Highways were closed lots of cars in the ditch, tow trucks run of their feet.

We're having strange weather this year in Alberta too. we had snow up until late april, then it's been on and off very hot or really cold and raining during most of may. it's been really hot and dry in the last week, so there's been forest fires out in the prairies so it's been reeally smoky in the city here.

Having lived in Michigan for most of my life (and being awfully close to Detroit and the bridge/tunnel to Canada), I tend to consider myself as an "honorary Canadian". (: I love it there.

When I was a kid, I lived in northern Vermont, not far from the Canadian/U.S. border. I remember cold, cold winters. Then we had summer (August) . At the time, it also was a good place to raise a family -- don't really know if it's changed much. I ran into a guy from Vermont about a month ago, and I told him I used to live in Essex Junction. I told him I thought it probably changed quite a bit since I was a kid. He said he didn't think so - there's still no Walmart there.

Thank goodness

Walmart is evil! Seriously, after hearing that they take out insurance policies on their employees and collect the money when they die...... that is just sick for an employer to profit that way. Especially when you figure their part timers work a few hour a week at minimum wage and take home very little. They up and die and Walmart make $60,000 on them. No wonder they make money every quarter. I won't go into the way they make their suppliers lowball their prices and put others out of business! Darth Vader has nothing on this Evil Empire!

It is unfotunate that Walmart has cracked into the Canadian market. Their rath will continue to kill many more small businesses.

Heather's Rant for the day!
