What people are saying:

I am one of your new subscribers to your online weekly updates. I find them fascinating, and entertaining. They remind me of my cultural background...Spanish...where folks could get together and loudly, sometimes irreverently, discuss differences of opinion and still go home with egos intact. It has always saddened me how "polite" we all are here in Canada, and how much we miss by not giving our real opinions for fear of offending someone. Carry on. Salud y Buena suerte! - Carmen Lopez, Winnipeg
