    Wow, rather presumptuous on your part to wish a happy holiday to an entire country. ;)

    You know me. I'm a big production guy like that.

    Next month, I'll be doing the October Revolution.

    at least you got that, I had to witness the Cannots beat my Canadiens 7-1 on Wednesday and paid $650 for the privilege (my son went with me).

    Just so you all in the south know, not everywhere in Canada has snow, we don't on the west coast. Yee lives in one of the coldest parts of North America, Saskatchewan. It's about 10-12 degrees here (50-54 for you that don't use celcius)

    We lost our best player (Markov) in the first game. Since the lockout, our record without Markov is something like 7-22 (with some overtime games thrown in for good measure). He is by far our MVP.

    ...it's about 12 degrees Fahrenheit here today.

    The team I coach has a playoff game in a couple of days and we have been conditioning outside for the cold.

    Won our regular season finale 32-6. Hoping to carry some momentum into the playoffs.

    ...they have snow on the ground also?

    Turkey tasted mighty fine today. Dressing was excellent as usual.

    I basted the turkey today and used a half a pound of butter to make a hard shellac layer on that bird before putting him in the oven.

    That butter and turkey drippings makes the most awesome, but heart stopping gravy ever.

    What's the best beer made in Canada?

    ...Christmas Goose.

    It's a micro brewery located here in Saskatchewan.

    They release only (100) cases during the Christmas season and people from all over Canada, the United Stated and Europe line up to buy it online or at the retail front of the stores and brewery.

    The reason for the limited release is the filtration method for the water, singular barley supplier and the singular supplier of the hops.

    The hops are hand planted, watered by nature and hand harvested and dried a year in advance. The supplier, unknown to the consumer and a well kept secret, has produced a variety with a herbal aroma.

    They use a singular sparge filtration method.

    The beer comes in at 7% alcohol volume and works well with a hearty meal such as Christmas Goose, Ribs or Turkey.

    It will make you think differently about heavy lagers. People who I have sent this to have told me it's a delicious beer that you can't drink more than one bottle at a time.

    It's high calories and a great palate cleanser for a greasy meal.

    The brewery complains that they make no money on the production run, but they try to keep it going because of the marketing frenzy.

    If you can get your hands on a case I recommend it. It's hard to come by and it's not guaranteed from year to year.

    I had a feeling you were gonna mention something hard to come by. I should have asked for Top 5. Sounds good though, if I ever make it to Canada I'll give it a try..
