We're being overun by Canadians!
Seriously, I live on the Canada border, in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, just south of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. I have a good many freinds just north of the river, and love the Canadian wilderness, just as I love the southern shore of Lake Superior.
You and I, we cook the same way, though I suspect I have just a few years head start on you.
Welcome to DC. You will love it here. There is a true feeling of community, and genuine respect for each other, except for those characters who reside in "Joisey"
(the man I'm referring to is my younger (by several years) twin brother in spirit, and birth date ("watch him folks, "cause he's a thouroughly dangerous man")).
Have fun, ask questions, share what you know. You're in good company.
