No sweat and no apologies needed. It's just that I've spent a good part of my life hoping that Canada can find an effective way of being happily multi-cultural. The mixed cultures have produced a wonderful combinations of songs. The McGarrigle's come to mind -- they have a lovely song called "Jacques et Gilles" on their recent Matapedia CD, which covers geography from New Hampshire to Maine to Quebec and shifts from English to French to McGarrigargle in mid-sentence.
And the love of my life is fond of reminding me that Edinburgh, where she was born, is not part of England.
