It is. It's marked "18 months old" but doesn't seem to have rotted. There's a stand where they give away samples, after years of eating the samples it seemed time to actually buy some. The real find yesterday though was the smoked and peppered mackeral, tasted great, cost next to nothing.

Yes, my brother, who originally came here as an illegal immigrant bricklayer found that he needed more imperial here than he did in London (in the 80s).

No, but if you listened to all the accents in this cabin you'd be forgiven for thinking we were in Mississippi.

This is a great job - hardly a Canadian on it. Mostly good ol' boys from Texas and the Gulf coast and Brits. That's how to run a job.

Woman's intuition is indeed correct. It's here in Yuma, AZ.

If you look closely at the hummingbird, you will note that it doesn't have a scarf or a touque - watch and learn people, watch and learn.
