Oh this is so true. This and how Canadians seem so friendly and seem to like everybody.

Anyway, I drive an old American pickup truck with two-wheel drive, stick shift and no air conditioning. I can't possibly reek any worse of the inability to drive anybody's real estate prices up. I do try to leave an extra big tip in solidarity with all the hard-working women of the world waiting tables. I hope they can all forgive me for freezing my ass off all summer long in supposedly "sunny" southern California and seeking respite out of state. Call me a sun bird (as opposed to a snow bird). Brrr. I'm sick of being cold.
