      Sorry @ chrissy, didn't come back on last night. I'm not far from the lakeshore, in the "mid-west". I was going to ask you the same. Don't know if that's too personal of a question on the Internet. lol

    Ashleigh Banfield keeps mentioning growing up in Winnipeg and the cold temperatures there. The rest of Canada calls her hometown Winterpeg.
