Re: Brrrrr

Living in Canada sucks, eh?

Much warmer here, but I still think I'll drive the S8 on my errands this morning. Nice and comfy, good tunes and it will be better bike riding weather this afternoon, anyway.

Oh I don't know about the winter weather sucking everywhere in Canada...I'm going to ride my bike to work today and we are expecting a sunny sky with a high of 15 (around 61). Not bad for Canada eh? I ride all year never have to put my bikes away. Ok JB you can start spanking.

Re: Brrrrr

Here in Montréal, it was zero this morning @ 6:00 when I left to walk 19 kms to the office (weight loss kick). I didn't bring gloves and regretted it 1/2 way.

It's now up to a balmy 2 degrees!

Well, the way I look at it.... you still have to put up with really low speed limits, you can't run a radar detector, women wear too much clothing... and the beer is.... well, really bad. Worse than Fosters, Heineken, Budweiser...



Probably have bad Mexican food, too.

I hear Vancouver is nice.

I will give you the speed limit is too low. But radar detectors are legal in BC. And we have some of the best micro brewerys in the world here. Don't even get me started about your weak ass American beer my friend! And BC women are beautiful!! Something to do with being an active place to live and being outdoors all the time. No fake girls here! Well not many anyway.

33F in Niagara Falls for my ride in this morning but relatively dry so surprisingly wasn't bad at all.

Hey, I don't drink any American beers either. Imports baby, imports...

They may be beautiful but they are covered up, so there's nothing to see, which is my main complaint.

See photo below, for typical Okie clothing:

Re: Brrrrr

Word to the wise... when visiting Oklahoma, you generally ought to stay wherever the attractive female (that is on your arm as you leave the local watering hole) takes you...

At least that seems to be the plan for most people. The attractive ones always have a nice place to rest your head. It's the ugly ones that live under bridges and they don't get their beer at any place I'd recommend that you go.
