Possibly, i have never been to that area so can't say for sure. Its been a warm winter more like spring for most of it.

Just remembering a tangential moment on one of the Karma threads:

and then the subsequent posts...

Looking at that date, you're not too far ahead seasonally after all.

The pies or the pudding version?
The pies are around $10, depending on how many you get. The St Hubert ones (no kidney) are about $9 full price in the supermarkets here - albeit bigger - but my memory of the Fray Bentos ones is they are so much better and I've not had S&K pie since 2004 or earlier.

Every time I have to type the name Brian, I type Brain instead. I think there must be something wrong with my Brian.

I wish Vancouver had more to do, so hard to stay occupied for 16 hours a day.

The boredom is getting to me.
