    Whooo HOO rolllllllllllllllllllllll Up the Riiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmmmm! This is a great thread. I work in Michigan and live in Canada. I am always getting caught for my "accent" for say out or about. Or how I say what a BP is.

    You know you are really Canadian when you know who the Bare Naked Ladies are and get their Lyrics and if you know who Great Big Sea is and are not afraid to listen to the lyrics and JIG.

    Thanks for the laugh

    Well the Falls of course.. :chuckle Then go around to the wax museums. Fun!
    Niagra Falls is not a big place but has many many retaurants. I couldn't tell you where to go. Same with all the motels. I would suggest staying at a Hotel instead. The motels are pretty much geared towards honeymooners with a lot of wear in the rooms! Theres some pretty new Hotels in the area.
    Have fun!!
    Thanks for the tips! Will try to make it to a wax museum.

    Anyone else have other ideas / suggestions?

    AAAAAAAAAAAAH! My two favourite bands! I've met members of both bands and I love them. The only time I had personal contact with Bob Hallett was when he was fleeing some fans and knocked me down....

    Thank you so much everyone. You made me feel like coming home.

    Here's my list for you know you are Canadian...

    It's "Kentucky Fried Chicken" not "KFC"
    You say battery like "Bat-tree" not "Bat er e"
    You know what Maple Buds, Sweet Maries, Big Turks, and MacIntosh Toffee are.
    If you've ever brought Smarties in bulk (especially to bring to all your Canadian friends in Florida, like I have!)
    Ketchup chips, salt and vinegar chips, Old Dutch Taco flavored tortillas.
    You've ever been accused of being bulemic because you were bringing such large quantities of smarties, chips and other junk to Florida for your Canadian friends.
    Wildberry Vodka Coolers and Caesars (no, not the salad!)
    If you have ever said, "Let's go down to the bar and have a Labatt's after the hockey game, eh?"
    And my own personal favorite...
    You practice your Canadian accent for 2 weeks before going home from Florida so everyone doesn't think you talk like a Southerner.

    I've been living in Florida for 12 years, married to a Michigander and was born and raised in Canada. I was also educated in French. As a result, I have this totally crazy accent that no one can fathom where I'm from.

    Have a great day. Beauty, eh?

    PS: I'm going home in a little over a week and I am going to eat my way through Alberta.
