    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.

    The whole family applied for WHITie cards in April and got them in the mail last week. The process was pretty easy. When we go up for the Eustis event, we were thinking about cutting across the line and grabbing a few Franco caches!!

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    My daughter said the PO was nuts today with people trying to apply for passports and cards. Hello!

    FYI - if you have/get a passport Do Sign It BEFORE you try to come back into the US.

    The words -Know before you Go are very important today, if you are crossing the US border and then trying to come back. The times - they are a, changing!

    Soon we will be getting micro-chips implanted under our shoulders, like it or not. I contemplate if things are changing for the better.

    Received mine Aug 2008 and have used it several times since Canada is only a few miles away. No problems with it yet.

    All you have to do is become an illegal alien and you can come across the border when you want and all kinds of services!

    I posted this thread because we share a common boundry with Canada, and knowing the new rules would be helpful when finding it necessary to cross the border.

    I'm sorry but due to the views of the previous post this has now turned into a political thread. And as I recall that is unacceptable, especially from a board member.

    Rick!! LOCK DOWN THE THREAD!!
