Introduction from your Neighbour to the North
For all my American readers who have been burning with curiosity about what life is like up here in Canada (yeah, right), I have some information for you!

Here's Jeff Foxworthy (who does not live in Canada) on life in Canada. And he's amazingly right on:

If someone in a Home Depot store
Offers you assistance and they don't work there,
You may live in Canada . (I don't know why Americans think Canadians are so polite. I find most of us obnoxious!)

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
You may live in Canada . (this is my youngest daughter's winter uniform).

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation
With someone who dialed a wrong number,
You may live in Canada .

If you measure distance in hours,
You may live in Canada . (Oh, yeah baby. We live 2 hours from Toronto and 2 and a half from Ottawa).

If you know several people
Who have hit a deer more than once,
You may live in Canada . (Typical dinner conversation: The first time I hit a deer....)

If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C'
In the same day and back again,
You may live in Canada . (did that today)

If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow
During a raging blizzard without flinching,
You may live in Canada . (I've never mastered this. But my husband has).

If you carry jumpers in your car
And your wife knows how to use them,
You may live in Canada . (I do!)

If you design your kid's Halloween costume
To fit over a snowsuit,
You may live in Canada . (Did this every year when the kids were young!)

If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km --
You're going 90 and everybody is passing you,
You may live in Canada . (Who's he kidding? The speed limit is 100 and I go 125).

If you know all 4 seasons:
Almost winter, winter, still winter,
And road construction,
You may live in Canada . (Oh, yeah).

If you have more miles
On your snow blower than your car,
You may live in Canada . (Hint: we call them kilometres).

If you find 2 degrees 'a little chilly',
You may live in Canada . (It's not too bad).

If you actually understand these jokes,
you must be Canadian!

I must say... A few of those apply to living in Tasmania as well. We are 3 hours from Launceston. 2 if you drive fast. And shorts and a jacket? Yeah, pretty common! Sometimes we have all four seasons in one day, and we can cycle through them in a week pretty easily. A few days ago we had snow down to 300 metres. Today it was 31 celsius! I love living here!!!

Introduction from you neighbor to the south. I gave a hearty AMEN to everysinglesolitaryone of those! Except for the km ones, I don't understand kms. I guess Canadians and Minnesotans aren't that different.

It seems very different up there!

Most of that is true for Nebraska too!
