We called 'em eavestroughs and downspouts too! Of course, having a Canadian mother and living close to the border may have had something to do with that.

And I've sat on many davenports and chesterfields (not just the cigarettes). Wearing my toque.

Just picked a bunch more green beans, IMHO, bush green beans give the best bang for the buck, you don't get tired of them like zucchini, and they keep on producing all summer.

Anyone know what a two-four is? Hoser? Double double?

Whadya mean, weren't really Canadian. Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis are both Canadian.

Huh. You're right, TL, thought I'd read something that they weren't. That was way back in the day.

How about: A babe of a deal!

Speaking of famous Canadians, could you folks send someone down to pick up Justin Bieber!

Two-four? How about a 40 pounder? Screech anyone? Pogey?

And Aunt Bea, we got rid of JB, he's yours to keep now. I've often wondered, if JB is known as the Beebs, what is the short form of Michael Buble's name?

Screech and Pogey, I know. But a 40 pounder? Is that like a 40 ouncer?

How about a Quebec term, "dep"?

Pac, I am not much of a person for using boxed foods. But I do have to say that of all the ones on the shelf, Duncan Hines got it right. Any time I have used one of their products, it was moist and had a lot of flavor. And they have not reduced the amount of their product in the box. If it says 24 cupcakes, you will get 24 cupcakes.

I would rather cook from scratch. I live alone and unless I am making something special for one of my kids, my cooking is all from scratch. My two most requested recipes are an apple pie and the Hershey's chocolate cake. I do cheat on the pie crust. I buy the premade. My supermarket does carry the Pillsbury brand, but they have one that is made in Mexico and has more flavor. It also is cheaper and slightly larger than Pillsbury. So that is my cooking sin.
