    CAD was short for Canadian!

    That's right: new forum, so I'm telling my secrets. My name is KC, and I'm a Canadian. **hi KC**

    It all started on a brisk March morning in the 70s... I started as Canadian and got hooked. At first I would just chip in an occasional 'eh?' into a conversation, use funny words like cheque, toque, and chesterfield, or add U's to words like colour and favour. But it wasn't long before the addiction really set in, and I was enjoying socialized health-care, smoking backbacon, and mainlining maple syrup; sometimes right from the tree. Please don't judge me, I'm too far gone.

    Nice to see some familiar... avatars.

    Welcome, from the Ottawa Valley. 'How's it now?' 'Dandy fine!'

    If you come to a fork in the road; take it, and then put it down so someone else can use it.

    Welcome!

    Even southern Canada is a big jump from the terrain down here in the US. I've been to Vancouver many times because my dad played for the Lions there. Also Toronto, I think, three times. Both are nice, clean cities. But my favorite place in North America is Lake of the Woods, OT. Unbelievable place. Just magical.
