Canadians love camp (vote for a trailer in every driveway)

Its above 0 today, tee shirt weather

Will move trailer to a safe indoor storage tomorrow will have to do a 3 hour drive to do it. (no crushed egg for us)
The largest local snow fall since moving to Owen Sound was 9' in 24 hours and we already had feet of snow on the ground at the time. You know you have had snow when you are taking it up off the roof!

P.S. my wife and I both made it to work the next morning even though it took 3 days to dig the cars out.

That said the boler is a light weight and rounded design meaning better on gas millage and in the north we have seen prices as high as $5.44 a us gallon after conversion this summer. Currently it is at $1.20 or $4.80 us gal
In Canada we may be light on people but not on distance.

Foot note: Tim's may not make the best coffee but we know it is not gut rot, price is OK so we get what we can count on.

Thought real beer was 6%

Charbucks? Tons of them. But to me, that really isn't good coffee, as it has all the goodness roasted out of it, though is not too bad if you like to dress it up with cream and sugar. (Other than a cappuccino, I drink coffee black) Those super dark roasts of theirs have just about removed any caffeine out of the coffee beans. And the price they charge, and seem to get away with, seems criminal. I can drink for a week for the price of one of their large coffees. Still, there are tons of folk who buy coffee from them.

Timmies is far from top notch too, just more palatable.

I have to admit to being a bit of a coffee snob though. I roast my own beans, trying lots of varieties from around the world, and trying many different roast profiles and levels with each bean. I also use a few different methods of extraction.

Can you tell? I just luvs my coffee.

Jim you are so right,
And Startbucks and Crispy cream donuts just to sweet.
It is like Pepsi vs Coke. Pepsi is better if you only want to taste test and Coke if you want the whole drink.
Still I prefer Canada Dry Gingerale with some 12 year CC

Boyoboy, have you got that right!

I think Starbucks coffee is nasty in the extreme, and as a matter of fact feel the same way about all espresso served on practically every corner down here.

Of course, my "house brew" here is made in a good ol' percolator, so you can see what a connoisseur I am...but I can guarantee a caffeine jolt that'll knock you off your feet!

Now that I'm retired, just thinking about paying the price for a Starbucks latte gives me the jitters.

I had a Tim Horton's coffee once.

And, in Canada, the alcohol content is on the label ( mostly 5% ).

Of the COFFEE?
Doesn't that cancel out the effect of the caffeine?

You're right. I'm looking at my Starbucks right now and not an alcohol content label anywhere LOL! Some things are definitely better in the great white north!

Hi: Glenn Baglo... We enjoy Tim Hortons, specially "Roll up the rim", in our trailer. We just can't use the drive thru!!!
Tim's biggest money makers are their bagels. Next is their coffee. I've been told, under a dime a cup, including the paper cup and a plastic lid that never stays open...for me!!! I take mine bla**...oops that's natural... but they always ask me what I want in it? Duh? My response is now "Kahlua". Oh sir,"We don't have any of that"...well then "Don't put anything in it"!!!

Yup.
Why is it that Tim thinks you're incapable of adding cream and sugar ( as desired )?? And that's not just the drive-through.
To poke another fast-food outlet, my favorite quote from The Simpsons' "I'm so hungry I could eat at Arbys".
