What about those loverly sour cream glazed timbits and the chocolate glazed ones ... Do they still make the Canadian Maple doughnut. So sweet, so damn good!

There's still a bit of snow... a tinsy winsy bit out back. I imagine it will likely melt tomorrow.

I don't really like Timbits. Only the Honey Dip ones.

Smarties are MILES better than M&M's.

It will! You're doing a great job: hockey, the toque, and if I'm not mistaken, that's actually a beaver dam behind you in that pic. I think you're officially in the club.

You have to, GG. It's truly spectacular in the spring, summer and fall when you can get closer to the amazing hiking trails and plant life. It's the kind of place that makes me proud to be from here.

Another one of those places is my hometown, Pasadena.



Speaking of winter, this is the winter view from the street where I grew up. I love St. John's, but in winter, my heart is in those hills.

These were taken very early in the morning a couple of years ago during Christmas vacation. Just a few days earlier, my best friend lost his father tragically, and I decided a good snowshoeing was in order. We went about halfway up the mountain in the first pic. Hard work!



Me cooking something, along with my hands.



Me next to the log cabin my friend and his father built.



Snow clinging to the trees.

The great part of the day was the finish: instead of snowshoeing back down, we hopped on a plastic slide (we called them Crazy Carpets as kids), and took off down an old snowmobile trail. We were going so fast, that I couldn't stop laughing; I felt like we were being transported into a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip at warp speed. It was one of those moments that can make winter a wonder.

After that, we defrosted at a nearby Irving and ate giant omelettes and drank copious amounts of coffee.

Oh, Canada.

Crazy Carpets! I loved those as a kid! We lived at the top of a very large hill, and when it snowed in the winters we'd fly down that hill at warp speed! So much fun! I have a lot of great memories of snow in the winter as a child.

Smarties are Canadian??
Well, they are my favourite chocolate "bar" (they're not exactly a bar!).

I love Canada, but I hate our winters
I hope to move to Toronto soon - it will seem tropical after Ottawa!

Vintage Punk - yeah, the Timmy's here does that too. They give us extra cookies just before closing time

I thought they were originally created in York in North Yorkshire, UK. Are you stealing my heritage?!



I'm actually not that keen on Smarties myself so feel free to claim them as Canadian if you want them!


M&Ms however...

My brother was planning on visiting Mighty Canada with his girlfriend next year but I think he's had to put that plan on the backburner for a bit now .

Yes, I have heard that even products which we have in both Canada and the US have a different taste.

Oh, lest we forget our BEER!!!!!
