I agree!

But while we are on the topic of #8, Nation branding, I really don't agree that we do that. I mean things like using a heart shaped version of your flag as an avatar? Who would do such a thing!

10. Adorable terms and phrases

I use the term "hoser", particularly when I'm driving. I guess I'll have to start saying, "take off".

I never heard the term "gitch". Had to Google that. Never heard be "given the gears". In Newfoundland they call someone "stun" when they aren't too bright or are behaving not-so-bright. Love that one.

But, I'm sure there are a number of regional expressions I have never heard.

I honestly think the overall quality of beer in the US is just as good as it is across the border. And I'm not talking about the big three American producers, but rather craft beers and microbrews. It's become big business and we now have some 1,500 breweries over here.

But the Bud (and Coors) we drink here in Canada are actually made here and are different from yours!

I have a buddy that used to work at the Molson's brewery when it was here in town and said the only real difference between Canadian and U.S. beers is the hops. One uses German and the other uses Belgian. I've had Bud on both sides of the 49th and there is a difference in taste. Which one is better?? I've had good and horrible on both sides of the border.

I think we in the US hold our flag in more reverence. We do have laws regarding the way it may be displayed. Almost every law officer in the country has a patch of the American flag on their sleeve. As well as our military. Of the ten houses on this street where I live, six of the ten homes are flying the American flag. And on and on!

One thing Canada is great for is as a source of excellent Discusscooking.com members.
