I just wanted to share with you all what happened at home today. some of our local radio stations along with a bunch of business who donated items, held a radio auction, and all the proceeds are going to support the Red Cross.

It's wild what's going on all across this country. Lots of stuff happening in Montreal as well.

Anything happening in your area, Anneke?

THANK YOU CANADA! I know you lost citizens too, but your response has been heartening to us all.

Yup, we've had huge line-ups for blood donations and every radio station has some kind of ongoing fund raising thing going on. We feel very much linked to what's going on in the US...

BTW our local news (Chicago) did a story about an older couple that got stranded in Canada on their way home from Greece. It was a wonderful story about how the Canadians took our people in for FREE and how even young school children donated time and efforts to the stranded Americans. The photos looked like their were hundreds of Americans just in that one shelter.

I sure hope Canadians don't feel snubbed!!!!! No, we greatly appreciate our friends! I think our President is spread rather thin right now....

No offense Wendy but I don't base my opinion of the Canadian-American relation to what Bush or Chretien ca say. It's in the small gestures that you can truly understand a relationship.

CoolJ I was kidding. Sorry I couldn't resist. :) Now for a French Lesson to say me neither you should say: Moi non plus. Moi aussi is more of a positive answer like the English me too.
