...I learned from The Red Green Show and Corner Gas.

Is that a bad thing?

Corner gas was pretty darn funny.
lets see, I grew up in Detroit area. I know about crossing the bridge to Windsor and catching the nudee show. Molson was cheap there.
Neil Young was my idol when I was a kid, and maybe the biggest reason I ever picked up a guitar.
Oh second city tv... kids in the hall and umm..... oh guess that's about it. :smiley20:

If you get a chance...visit Canada. Friendly people, with a great sense of humor. Just don't get too excited about the price of gasoline.....it is in liters, not gallons. For a dive vacation try Tobermory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobermory,_Ontario)...clear water, lots of wrecks, some really shallow....Foxhound and Scubadiver888 should have better information than I do.

the red green show and corner gas are pretty accurate haha.

I am a firm believer that duct tape holds the world together......good ol handymans secret weapon!


But yeah, if you ever do want to come visit and dive, tobermory is great, but I especially like diving the st lawrence river, some amazing wrecks!

Red Green and Corner Gas pretty much sums it up... For the "news" watch Rick Mercer Report. Funny guy.

As for the diving, you can't beat the west (wet) coast!

I know that I can go due south by compass and get to canada from my house. never concidered it "visiting" another country. Going to Canada for me was like going to Ohio, but with smarter people

Red Green and Corner Gas are pretty much what we have new immigrants watch in order to become citizens. ;)

A little Bob & Doug Mackenzie is good too, eh, you hoser!

If you are in the Toronto area let me know. If I haven't fallen down the stairs and hurt my foot I'll take you diving.

Appreciate all the diving invites. Maybe, someday, I'll make it to the northern climes.

I was there back in '68 for the Montreal World's Fair. Good times.

I learned a whole lot about Canada from last night's South Park episode.... I had no idea about the wedding pudding ritual.....

I am afraid South Park may have jumped the shark. The first two episodes of the new season sucks scissors.
