North Americans Win Cavendish Teams
Actually, we should stop tu use the word Americans, because we, here in Canada, live also in America, but not in USA. We should call them what they are, United-Statians.

A few years back, i wrote an article entitled Philosophy in the boudoir, as per the Marquis de Sade. Here is the beginning. Why did human being invent bridge ? Probably to give duration to sexual pleasure. Oops ? What a twisted mind. How can you talk sex when we are talking ...
