There a few thick patriots up here (too).  

But more than a few of us who appreciate independent thinkers....   Be careful Scott, folks might beg you to stay.

Clearly I had not been keeping up.   American managers and Brazilian owners.  

Cool.   Kinda like a streaming radio station out of California that introduces me to Canadian and Nordic music I have never heard before.

Lots of my friends were/are big fans.  Me?  No.  Not unless I gotten really stoned and had a serious case of the munchies.  

Frankly, I was always under the impression that Americans did deep-fried doughnuts as well or better than anybody else so..... unless you are lookin for "eh?" at the end of the sentence or about (aboot) pronounced in a strange way — no guarantees if the workforce is local — then you might be a bit disappointed.

If getting a donut at Arby's is exciting, then sure!

Hard to imagine opening a donut shop anywhere there's ever been a Krispy Kreme. 

The sandwiches were maybe above Arby's but not Panera. That's all I got. Been to a Tim Horton's 3 times, maybe 4.

Please don't ban me, Canada!

They're weird critters.  My grandparents used to have a cabin near Grand Teton Nat'l Park, and I spent a lot of time there while growing up.  The moose liked to eat the rubber spline that held the screens into the windows, so every once in a while you'd walk past a window and be eye-to-eye with the thing.
 
My dad and I drove behind a cow once while she ran up the road at 25-30mph, completely unconcerned about us while her strides kept time with the music on the truck's stereo.

True story:

Many moons ago, when we were poor students, hubby was doing a practicum with IBM in Calgary one summer, and I took the Greyhound out to see him for a weekend. The competely packed bus stopped for a meal break in Roger's Pass and I took a sandwich out into a field next to the highway to sit in the sun and get some space.
So I'm sitting there cross legged on the ground in the grass. I got my sandwich in my hand and my walkman headphones on and I'm reading a book.All is mellow.
Well, you know how sometimes you just get the feeling that someone is looking at you? I look up and there is a frickin'  giant moose not 4 feet from me with his head down and sniffing towards my sandwich.
Immediately my mind goes into overdrive thinking what the hell am I supposed to do with a moose? Do I run? Do I play dead? What the....? Aaargh!
So I gently toss my sandwich towards him, which he sniffs at and then promptly loses interest and turns and lumbers away.
Now, I was sitting on the ground, but I am sure that animal was over 6 feet tall at the shoulder and he had a rack on him big enough to scoop my entire being into the air should he have chosen to.
Damn near pooped my drawers {#Lol}
