...no, of course not. Every time I watch the guy on the TV, I try to put myself in the position of someone living in another country. Sometimes I giggle when I do that.
Meanwhile, the count of the dead keeps increasing at a phenomenal rate. One might almost say "exponentially" were one given to the use of two dollar words.
"exponentially" We use it so much and we are printing money so fast that in two years it will be worth 20 cents and cost $20.

Any forum guys that want to move to try our green and pleasant lands, pm me. Most of my close friends are Americans who figured out why this region is so great years ago.
Nov 3 is the litmus test.
Yes indeed, that test may result in more good friends who found a safer place to live.

Way back in 1968 I sailed a boat back from Plymouth, England, to Newport Rhode Island and stopped in a small fishing village called Seal Harbor near the far eastern end. I grew up in a very rural part of New York State and that village had the same neighborly feel as my home town. I loved it there. It looked just the way I imagined a community in Nova Scotia would look with piles of salted cod drying in an open shed. With it's maritime heritage I'm sure I'd be happy there.

I favorite author of mine is Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, an anthropologist who has written a good bit about the worlds wild places. Her father, John Thomas, was a founder of Ratheon. When he retired from that job, he took the whole family off to the Kalahari desert to spend time among the Bush People. both she and here mother, after many years among those people, have written about them and developed a very high regard for. https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/the-ha...&idiq=18994364 This book is a good read with lessons on how to get along in a very harsh environment. Resources, food and water, are so scarce that only small bands numbering no more than 12-15 people can find sustenence. Furthermore, it takes a high degree of cooperation from the entire group to survive and everyone has to work to maintain group cohesion. There are personal frictions and disagreements but after at least 10,000 years of such a life the bush people know how to deal with this. We can learn from them.

Not a Canadian, but, when I grew up in Michigan, if you saw someone stuck in the snow, it was second nature that everyone just stopped and pushed them back onto the road before going on their way. It was just what you did. No one though anything of it.

Had a blowout on a camper I was pulling through Montana and was surprised by how many local people stopped to help me out. I was told that is what we do because in winter being stranded on the road could be fatal.

Lighten up, Francis. I once dated a Swedish woman and visited the country. I used to joke with her about the double letters and long words. She didn’t have a problem with it, and those are what I was conjuring in my post.

BTW...She teased me about my pronouciation of "Husqvarna."

If I am a ***** for wearing a mask it's my right to be one. I am not huirting anyone, so I don't understand what his issue is--other than one that he should seek professional help with.
