Funny Woody!!! Of course the poor nudity-crazed Swedes had to get involved :D Before we came to Canada,I actually thought Canadian Indians wore clothes we see in the movies,feathers and all and lived in Tee-pees :D
We learned about just about every country in the world in school,but somehow Canada was left out,people thought it was part of the US.. :eek:

That is absolutely beutiful. Woodie? Quick question... Have you ever seen the show called Rick Mercer's Talking to Americans? If so, what did you think of it? I heard that once it caught on in the media down there it didn't go over so well. People got offended. Personally I thought it was one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV.
My fave is the one where everyone was saying "Canada, congratulations on finally going on the 24 hour clock." or "legalizing VCR's".

Oliver, Nadia and I are Laughing our A**es off as we sit here typing, looking out the window in downtown Vancouver at the lush greenery and Coal Harbour. Cheers with a stunning glass of Burrowing Owl Pinot Gris (a wonderful BC wine for those of you who are wondering...) :p
