Sounds loud enough to me, from the clip anyway

Sounded like traffic though
Not sure how you fix traffic

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

A really big fish that hates Canadians?  Somebody in Detroit trying to get even with Canada for Celine Dion?  A nefarious American plot to drive Canadians further north, thus allowing US settlers to take over the abandoned territory?

Having been thru Windsor many times on my way thru to the States and in fact having lived nearby for a while, I can honestly say I’ve never experienced it.  I don’t know of any of my friends there that have ever mentioned it either.  Sounds like the one experienced by that town in the southwestern states, Texas I think. 

The American side of the river across from Windsor is lined with factories and heavy industrial complexes so it wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of that noise was making it’s way across the river.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
