                Is that truly the distinction

                  OK, I'll hit you with this:

                  According to Bart Bandy's Lexicon of Canadian Etymology (Don Mills, Ont., C. Farquharson, 1994), the term evolved from the French word canule around the time of the American Revolution, but its path of evolution is still not clear. Another possibility is that it rose from a mispronunciation among Benedict Arnold's forces as they laid siege to Quebec in the winter of 1776. According to Bandy, the comte de Theleme-Menteuse was one of the locals captured by the Americans. In his Contes bizarre d'Isle d'Orleans, the latter says that the Americans picked up the common phrase "Quelle canule", but they were usually shivering so hard when they said it that it came out with the "l" hardened into a guttural stop – thence a "k".

                      I'm grateful for this awesome place and the wonderful members here, including the Canadians. I have a lot to be grateful for this year.

                              ...figures that he'd think about hockey first, he's probably wearing the Canadiens clown suit right now...

                                I am wondering if there is a setting or plug-in in Indesign or acrobat in which I can automatically place/show the Pantones I used in my design. Right now I have to draw out boxes and label the Pantones...

                                I think you'd do better to put a smily face in one of the circular letter forms, as that would at least emphasize commitment to 'nice'.

                                If the logo is not what you had in mind, why do you show it here?
                                If you are working with a crowdsource, let that be a lesson to you.

                                I'd say there are three big issues that leap out to me.

                                1. Navigating is really difficult - I just have to guess where to click and it takes me to a page, though I'm not often sure where...
