    Why? Are there fewer mittens in western New Brunswick counties?
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Why is Jesus Christ's middle initial H? What does the H stand for? Is the H a colloquialism too? In Maine? This is probably an improper subject; being Good Friday and all.

    My comment had absolutely nothing to do with you, Franco-Americans or French Canadians, noting that my link was to a New Brunswick site, and New Brunswick was an ENGLISH colony and the destination of ENGLISH loyalists. Or were you just trolling?
