Lumberjacks went on the endangered species list a number of years ago.

Not true! We have clamato but we drink it the right way...with horseradish, pepper, olives, celery, a twist of lime or lemon and a liberal dose of vodka. Any other way is just unrefined.

Clamato is getting a bit more popular, but it is still tough to get a Caesar mixed for you by most bartenders in the US. One of the best things to come out of Calgary. Go to any resort worldwide that has Canadians there regularly, and they will know how to mix one up.

Another potato chip oddity in the US, at least in Oregon, is when you order chips with a meal, you actually get potato chips on the side, not french fries. How weird is that, potato chips with a meal.

Where are you located? Any time I try and order a Caesar in a bar in the US, which is what we call what you describe but without horseradish (we add Worcestershire sauce) I get told sorry and offered a Bloody Mary instead.

Now don't share this with Oregonians, but they are a little ...ah...different.

I shouldn't mess with the Oregonians. At least the Canadians are unarmed.

Aren't many Oregonians expat Californians who went looking for a place to grow their pot? They don't seem like the violent type.

Now that group you are referring to are known as Californicators. They sell their houses for a million plus, buy a nicer house in the PNW and retire off the rest of the proceeds.

I think all that crowd recently left Oregon for Washington

The Canadian Party is another thing you should be very scared of.

Seriously, one of the best parts of traveling is the different foods in the regions of all of North America, or for that matter anywhere we've been in the world.

One of our favorite places to eat is at the northern tip of Newfoundland, a rather small, very good restuarant. We always spend two days there so we can eat there twice. If you go to L'anse aux Meadows check out the nearby Norseman.

Actually we find Canadian fries to be excellent. While waiting for the Nfld ferry we walk over to a little restuarant for a pile of fries in a little place on the main drag.

We live in a heavily lobstered maine and NH, but for some reason I can't explain, maybe the colder water, Nfld Lobster always tastes better. Our spot in Nfld is a little fish market in Rocky Harbor.

I'm getting hungry for Nfld, already have grown my beard back for our spring trip though I have become doubtful about the Nfld rally since I can't get in touch with Scouter Dave by PM.
