Thanksgiving in the summer


Creeper -

Toronto must be the source of one of the longest streets in the world. I think it is either Bond or Broad Street that runs north out of Toronto for seemingly forever. I had friends that lived in Toronto (their daughters sat with our kids when traveling to Toronto) and their father was Joe Primeau (Leafs hockey player) and we always got great seats and service at the Maple Leafs games

I think the first documented "Europeans" to settle in Canada were "Icelanders" or "Vikings". They settled in about 1000-1100 when they left Ireland and the Faroe Islands for a short trip in their unique small boats. They were never out of sight of land for 2 days and the distance is not as great as it seems on the flat, distorted maps of a sphere where northern portions appear larger than actual. After settling in Iceland for years, they took short trips to "Greenland", when the first realtor (Leif Ericson) decided to call the cold, barren rocky area a "green" place to encourage settlement. About 100-200 years later, they went to Newfoundland and set up homes and the ruins and relics have been documented. Even for fishermen, it was a tough life.

Canada (C eh?, A eh?, N eh?, A eh?, D eh?, A eh?) is a great place. Unfortunately it is 300 miles north of me, but I am north of most of the people in Canada.

What is "Boxing Day"?

True say Dick. The name of the St is actually called Yonge St. It is 1,896 kilometers long.
Maple Leaf Gardens is no longer there, the leafs now play at the ACC (Air Canada Centre) Yes Centre not Center
It is true that a lot of American people live north of millions and millions of Canadians. Most people don't realize that. You live a lot further north than I. Are the leaves in your area down yet or are they still in their splendid glory?

creeper -

We have had about 10 days of 80F+ with low humidity (20-30%) following some morning temps below 30F. It is driving everyone crazy, because they don't know when to shift to winter for lake homes (you call them cottages) for winterization or seasonal use (every week end). The gas stations get clogged with the mix of snow mobiles and boats all on trailers.

Everyone it waiting for the seasonal change so they can get back to "normal".

Was Joe Primeau a legendary Leaf or just had a lot friends? His kids played for St. Mary's (?).

We are getting the same awesome weather. I think traditionally people are shutting their cottages down on this weekend. According to the weather man on Wed its all over but the crying!

Can't help you with the hockey stuff. Growing up my Dad and brothers were into it in a big way. One brother was actually drafted into the N.Y. Islanders farm team. My eight year old son plays, but other then that I think I just o.d ed on hockey.

How do you O.D. on hockey? It is hard to avoid here (MN) except the overlap of sports creates the situation of specialization.

Thanx to the memory jogger, I just checked and found my friends father was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame after coaching the Leafs to the Stanley Cup Championship in the early 1950's. I guess he had a lot of friends at the old Garden where they served drinks to your seat in real glasses with cold ice.

I still would like to find some common information on "Boxing Day".

Edit - I just found that "Boxing Day" is traditionally on DEC 26. The reason for the question is that I am having problems with getting technical program support from a Canadian firm that shuts down on on 10/11 for Thanksgiving, so I was frustrated with the different holidays. - I should have known better and not been so provincial.

Happy Thanksgiving, and summer, no kidding. I have never seen a thanksgiving in my life where I could wear shorts and a tshirt. It's abnormally hot for October. We don't even have any snow yet.

Right back at you, FN. Btw, I live in an International District of Houston, I eat like that three times a day.

Seriously, there's a (Mexican?) store at the end of my street that very Sunday lights up their trailer smoker. I can buy that carne meat on any day, marinaded, but on Sundays they'll cook it for me. Doesn't hurt that my roommate is from Honduras either and she loves to cook and boy can she!

Awesome, love it!
