  2. When we went to the US shortly after 9/11 two soldiers with machine guns searched our van at the border and confiscated 2 oranges.

  3. The Second Amendment protects gun rights. Eggs didn't get an amendment. Plus, egg farmers' trade association has nothing like the budget and clout of the NRA.

    (Sigh)

  4. DC See we protected you from choking on those oranges. How thoughtful of us.

  5. Kinder is a chocolate company. European, I expect. Kinder is also mfrd in Canada. A Kinder-surprise is an egg shaped chocolate with a toy inside. They make all kinds of chocolates for kids (Kinder). I didn't realize that they didn't exist in USA or that they were a trade issue.
    Someone made a list of good stuff we have in Canada that isn't found south of the border. I think ketchup flavoured potato chips is one but I would not say you missed anything.

  6. I did see a year or two back that "Tim Horton's" was invading the US. Some things manage to get across the border.

  7. May or may not work. The cultures are too different and unless the corporation can make the shift, it fails. Canadian Tire tried it. It is easier for American companies to move north. Tim Horton's had a head start in Canada because everyone knew who he was when it started and then momentum kept it rolling. Apparently some kind of doughnut shop from the USA also moved to Canada. Creme something. After my time i think.

  10. Laura: seeing as BF has gone to Europe (albeit Eastern Europe), perhaps he has developed a liking to poutine, or something like that. Europe sometimes does strange things to people.
