I care about you, Canada. You have great things like lakes with massive scary holes in them and a good French-language music scene, and mounties!

Out of curiosity, to the folks of ON... why do you sell milk in plastic bags? My wife is from Toronto and she does not know.

We had those for a while when I was a kid - then they just went away.

I have no idea why they came (or went). They sold special plastic jugs that the bags fit in though....

Thanks! Garbage is a big issue in Toronto. I guess it makes sense since it's easier to trash or re-cycle. I will let the wife know

According to Wikipedia, highest point in Texas is 8,749', highest point in Ontario is 2,270', so Texas is 3.85 times as tall. So there.

Is there anything else worth being good for?

It's only a big issue when we can't send it to Michigan

Right on!! Remember the Alamo though.. just sayin'. Oh wait, we did play that in 1812. Kicked the Yankee asses all the way back to Washington.

I have been all over Texas and I could live just about anywhere there. In fact I did live in Plano for a few years. My only exception would be Houston.. Nice people but DA#* that humidity kills me! Sucks the life right out of you.

All of Texas is usable. Ontario, not so much. Lonestar and Labatts
