RE: French fries... Yes , I said french fries.

There is no real law that says you cannot put both Ketchup AND vinegar on your chips! One method that I don't think has been mentioned is putting mayo on your chips. IIRC this is how 'Pomme Frites' are eaten in their place of origin, Belgium.

RE: French fries... Yes , I said french fries.

I had never seen white vinegar until I moved from Wales to Canada. I only put malt vinegar on my chips. Yes 'chips', I still prefer the Anglo Saxon term to the Gaulic version. It is easier to get vinegar now in the US, though it is often just the clear stuff. As for the chips in the US being not as good as here, well maybe, I think we tend to do the fresh cut ones more often than they do. AS for 'Poutine' that used to be an exclusively Quebec dish, but is now found in many places. 'Fries and gravy' would be a more typical Canadian version. BTW a little off topic, but I go on to 'Tripadvisor' regularly. I have quite often read in restaurant reviews done by British travellers in which they refer to the 'Fish and Chips' they get in Canada and the US as 'Fish Fingers and Chips', their word for 'Fish sticks', as the pieces of fish you get here are so small in comparison to the UK!

RE: Winter is a comin

Yes it is nice this morning. However, we have the kids coming over for Thanksgiving later on so we may have to put the heater on for the first time! They feel the cold a lot more than we do.

RE: Member "Mandrake"... ?

I remember Fenwick really well. He had a few different names when he was here. I seem to remember he had a thing about Canada and Canadians. That's why we got on so well. I can't quite remember if he hated Canadians or wanted to be one! :)

RE: Who knew??

It is interesting to see on Trip Advisor, how many people write that they want to fly from Europe to the west coast of North America, but plan to stop somewhere in the east to break up the journey. This appears to make sense if you look at a flat Mercator map. In fact, a flight from London to Vancouver takes nine hours, while a flight London to Toronto takes eight hours! Look at a globe to see how far out the way Toronto is on a direct flight to Vancouver.

RE: Camping World Closed...

Even though I'm retired, I'd hate to live in a place where everything is closed on Sundays. Seems like a backward step. If Sunday is important to you, then choose a career that you would not be required to work Sundays. The argument that you don't have to shop on a Sunday is not valid, as to many people, going around the mall or the shops is how they entertain themselves or relax.

RE: Member "Mandrake"... ?

He moved to Walla Walla. I did a Facebook search and he appears to be still there. Last post here though was about three years ago.

RE: Rugby Word Cup

Cymru am Byth! That would be OK. Someone different for a change. Need to get out of the pool of death first. We're half way out! You see the game? Fantastico! At times though it looked like the movie 'Gladiator' with bodies all over the field!

RE: When & Where to Watch This Weekend’s Total Lunar Eclipse

It'll be like the 'Supermoon' with the difference from the norm, being so small that you would need to measure it very carefully to detect it. I'm guessing just an inch or so?

RE: When & Where to Watch This Weekend’s Total Lunar Eclipse

Also, two days later on the 29th, will be the highest ocean tides in 18 years. I just don't know how I'm going to fit all this in. Wales vs. england World Cup Rugby on Saturday morning, eclipse on Sunday, and then on Tuesday, I'll have to walk down the hill to see the high tide! I feel tired already.

RE: Lets see your other toys!

I have quite a few static shots, but I kind of like this one courtesy of Google Streetview. Link

RE: unusual sight

If you go to heavens-above.com and enter your location, it will show you if any satellites or Iridium flares were visible at that time. I think it will go back a few days.

RE: Sooke to port refrew

We did the Pacific Circle route a few years ago and found the section between Port Renfrew and Lake Cowichan to be much better than the section between Jordan River and Renfrew. It was originally a logging road, but now it is all paved.

RE: Failing to Declare a Firearm at Canadian Border Crossings

amandasgramma, you will NOT be arrested if you declare your handguns, but you will not be able to cross the border with them, unless you have the correct permit. The government website seems to imply that as long as the handgun is not in the PROHIBITED category, you can get the permit. From what I have read here over the years, there is a very short list of reasons for which they will issue the permit, a registered shooting match is the most common one. I am in no way an authority on this, so double check this before you arrive at the border.

RE: Back from Vancouver Island trip!

Nice Report! I didn't know they had a beach at Living Forest, I thought it was just the view. That isn't really the ocean there IIRC, I think it is a tidal estuary. The best beaches, with nice sand and warmer water are a little to the North at Qualicum and Parkesville. They can do fires at Tofino as it is in the 'Fog Zone' Tsawwassen- not sure what the original pronunciation was but I say 'Ta-wassen', with a 'hissing S' not a 'Zingy One!'

RE: Perseids Meteor Shower Peaks

I'll be watching them this year as it looks like it's going to be clear. We have seen a few already, but it should increase late tonight. Most sources though, do give Wed. night/Thurs. morning as the actual peak. You do see more after midnight as this is when the part of the Earth where you are turns to the 'front' as the Earth moves through space. Kind of like how you get more raindrops on the windshield than the back window of a car!
