    So as I'm reading the posts I like to read the "location" part and see where everyone is from. Seems there's not many Canadians? Who is from canada and where? What do ya do?

    I actually remarked to myself that I saw a few today and thought about asking if there is anyone near London Ontario.

    So now I've asked it on your thread because I'm sure you'll get lots of views.

    Hope you fellas are not too cold there.
