Watch the Yankee dollar descend the steep, slippery slope.  Pretty soon

A year ago we could buy $1.59 CD with $1.00 USD, now the USD is down almost
20% in only a year and we can only get about $1.30 CD with $1.00 USD.
Retail outlets are booming around Buffalo and the parking lots at the malls
are filled with Ontario license plates.  CBS (cross border shopping) is
back!  Ski equipment is still cheaper in Canada though.
