My grandparents were from Montreal. They moved to Vermont soon after they were married. And yes, I also went on a field trip (in Vt.) to see how maple syrup was made. In fact, as a kid, my friends and I would tap our own maple trees (in woods that didn't belong to us), and make syrup on the kitchen stove. It always amazed me to see how much sap it took to make syrup. Personally, I don't like genuine maple syrup at all!

A belated welcome to the RetouchPRO site Marie (ravenmd)! I felt the same way about "finding a treasure" when I found this site too! And you'll definitely get a lot of help getting your business off the ground, so don't feel shy about asking questions. (Oh - and in this Salon forum, we talk about anything we want, essentially anything that's "off-topic" from restoration/retouching.)

I guess my US-centric focus got the best of me. In the US, the only "real" maple syrup I've ever seen is "Real Vermont Maple Syrup". And, having gone to the University of Vermont, I did notice there is an awful lot of maple syrup in that state. Never thought about where Vermont stood in the world market of maple syrup commodities though! Thanks for putting me straight on that.

Ed - how can you NOT like real maple syrup!?!?! I actually agree with Heather that the candy is a bit too much (I like it only in very small doses), but the actual syrup is heaven! Well, that's my opinion anyway.

I can understand Ed. I never liked maple syrup as a kid. I would use corn syrup when everyone else put maple syrup on their pancakes. It's starting to grow on me over the past few years and I like it more and more now.

I do miss Tim Horton's!!!! I thought Denver was a donut void for a while but my husband found a place near by that sells great chocolate glazed donuts that are as good as Tim Horton's so I'm very happy now! We also have a couple of new Krispy Kreams but I don't like them at all. The donuts melt in your mouth (raised not cake) and basically it's like eating sugar without any donut!

Hummmm it's sad that I've probably posted more to this thread than to all the others combined! Oh well it's fun anyway.

Hey Lampy,

I grew up in the Toronto area - very close to Black Creek Pioneer Village. I remember playing the same game and tapping the trees. Mig's picture is exactly what we used to do.

I think I'll make pancakes tomorrow morning. I need a maple syrup fix!

What is Canada day????

Well at least you didn't call it Canadian Day like the recent Yahoo travel ad.

The origin of Canada Day.....

Canada Day celebrates the events that occurred on July 1, 1867, when the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. The BNA Act proclaimed "one Dominion under the name of Canada," hence the original title of the holiday, "Dominion Day." Dominion Day was officially renamed "Canada Day" by an Act of Parliament on October 27, 1982. This change reflected the policy of successive governments to downplay Canada's colonial origins. Canada's national celebration is always observed on July 1, unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case it is observed the following day.

That's today's history lesson....so now you know!!!

Happy belated Canada Day and early 4th of July!

--Heather
