I guess that means they're keeping their options open? Tongue
But really, we did invade Canada in 1812 and burned their capital. Why is this news?
They (the British, I mean) returned the favor and then burned ours. But then a tornado came through Washington and blew away the British troops. Your couldn't make this stuff up!

"It's a queer country out here", Pa said. "Strange things happen."
"Yes", said Ma. "I'm thankful that so far they don't happen to us."

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

is so depressing these days that I appreciated this small laugh today. I've greatly enjoyed my four trips Due North and plan on going back again at least three more times in my life to see things I haven't already. Lovely country and people, the majority of which I imagine can appreciate the joke.

Have some tea, won't you? Or maybe a trip to the pub? We have CANADIAN beer on tap.

Several years ago the USA's National Public Radio as an April Fool's stunt . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

broadcast that the US state of Arizona had been annexed by Canada so that snowbirds could enjoy Canadian citizenship while on their winter hiatus there! Very funny!!
