Dewey's Comments

I think there are more cats because people treat them as disposable pets. Moving? Leave your cat behind, it can fend for itself. Under the free section in the online classified ads, there are more free cats than old tv units and tatty armchairs combined. Oooh, our cat had kittens, isn't that adorable? Who wants one? We will just let our unspayed kitties wander the neighbourhood to poop in your flowerbeds and yowl under your bedroom window all night.
Now you may think I don't like cats, but I do, very much. It's irresponsible owners that annoy me. (oh yes, it applies to dog owners too, but to a lesser degree)

I love little black dogs! My current and last pooch were black. While a good picture is not always easy (you need good lighting), there is no doubt as to their expressions! If my dog weren't anti-cat, I'd have a tuxedo kitty too.

This only applies to cash transactions. If you pay by debit or credit card, there is no rounding. Debit is used here probably more often than cash. Rounding might be marginally beneficial to smaller businesses, but nobody's going to get rich! On the plus side, there is less waiting for the person in front of you to search all their pockets for 4 pennies!

Canadians don't eat grape jelly, unless it's for the novelty at Smitty's. (Or drink grape juice). We do eat crabapple jelly that our grandmother made. Or raspberry jam.

Our school district doesn't have snow days (in AB Canada). Sometimes the buses don't run because it's too cold for the diesel engines (-35 C). In 20 years I don't ever remember them not running because of snow. But then we are equipped to the hilt for winter! But the schools never close, because some kids will always show up.

Haven't you ever seen videos of swimming babies? (to lazy to find one for you). It seems very instinctive. But then I think you would lose that instinct if you didn't keep it up.

I would love a "slow tv" channel. i've already had the fire log on this fall...
Thanks Daniel Kim, I think I know what I'm doing for the next - 12 hours?

I just spent a few weeks with relatives in the UK this past summer. All signs for bathrooms said "toilets". They wash their dishes with fairy liquid. Muffins are what you americans would call rolls, and we canadians would call buns! If you ask for lemonade, you get 7up. A truck is a lorry, but no one there drives a pickup truck anyway! It's interesting that they use a lot of french terms, considering their history with France. (Maybe it is because of their history with France?) Aubergine=eggplant. Courgette=zucchini. Gateaux=cake. Fete=party.
