Dispose of your food-related garbage somewhere else for a bit, and when you go shopping raid the trash cans in the parking lot for fast food wrappers, McD's, KFC, etc, half eaten bits as well, and put them in your bin, scattering 1 or 2 pieces beside it, maybe you can prompt a casserole or something. You can tell a lot from a casserole. When I was young I visited my cousins on the farm one winter and learned a bit about trapping.

Great article in the Ottawa Citizen today. I know there is another thread for this but I can't be bothered looking for it.

Man shot in bum near St. Laurent on Thanksgiving Sunday



The best bit might be the name of the journalist. Kirstin Endemann. Quite appropriate, I thought.

Just tried to upload photos from my recent trip to NS as I know people have been asking but for some reason when I try and upload them it comes up with an error saying I am missing a 'security token...

So anyone that wants to look there is a link to my blog on my profile Page and plenty of pics on there.

Grrr technology

Yeah, absolutely nothing to do with the amount of beer that you had necked.

I think btw that the files that you have been trying to post were too large hence that message, scale them down and you should be good to go

Half a glass of red wine thank you very much

If you are talking about the beer in NS, I just don't have photo proof although I did go to the Alexander Keith's brewery - bit disappointed with that though

I meant on your NS jaunt- I was worried that here may have been a lot of views of your thumb. What was wrong with the brewery?

Over priced, over dramatic and not much beer for your $$$

Been on better tours like Steam Whistle in Toronto and Samuel Adams in Boston

Yeah, I see what you mean on the website. Pretentious " food pairings" ... FFS!
I went to the Saltspring Island brewery when we visited the island, way less bs.

Done..looked a bit windswept. You write-up well.

Glow in the dark toilet seats?

Imagine feeling a bit queasy and being confronted by the green one.



I'd want to take a Geiger counter with me.
