I wouldn't say creepy, +Jodi Barrington. But it is very strange. I think it's some kind of woodland creature.

Nice going. I'm always amazed that you can do this every year.

Sorry we weren't around to join in this year.

Not using a VPN, but Mary Ann Turcke's idea of shaming people who are was quite ridiculous.
Bell Media president Mary Ann Turcke sparked an uproar last week when she told a telecom conference that Canadians who use virtual private networks (VPNs) to access the U.S. version of Netflix are stealing. Turcke is not the first Canadian broadcast executive to raise the issue - her predecessor Kevin Crull and Rogers executive David Purdy expressed similar frustration with VPN use earlier this year - but her characterization of paying customers ...

And if you're going to call people criminals, at least get it right. It's certainly not stealing. If anything, maybe smuggling, or importing restricted materials.

I've been asked often. If you have 24 minutes, here is how I do pizza.

--Dough/Crust starts at 0:28 https://youtu.be/Nt3COD_s9IQ?t=28 
--Sauce begins at 6:00 https://youtu.be/Nt3COD_s9IQ?t=361 
--Construction starts at 19:18 https://youtu.be/Nt3COD_s9IQ?t=1158

Dough (2 12" crusts)
4 c Flour
1 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or your favourite oil)
1 ½ c hot water
** mix this together, knead well (by hand or machine) and let it rise covered in a warm place**

Sauce
8 medium tomatoes (3 lbs)
8 cloves garlic (1 bulb or 2 tbsp minced)
0-3 hot peppers (to taste)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper

+Breen Ouellette For $150, it was a total steal. I can't keep the temperature lower than 500F and it easily goes above 1000F. The trick is to not burn the bottom!

Character coming out of every crack in the walls. Really nice vegetarian options for my family. Down to Earth and inexpensive.

When you open the door and cross the threshold, you are off the map ;) Always a great place to browse. The more indy business gets replaced by franchise the better stores like this become. Don't go here hoping to acquire a love of the things within. This is a place for geeks with a passion to seek and to find.

What a gem of a place! They have been selling stellar pirogies here since the '90s. Tucked away right next to King George School, it's also an awesome stop for cabbage rolls, sausage and frozen soups. The sour kraut and onion pirogies blow my mind! Haven't tried cherry yet ;)
