There's a place in Birmingham..

Gourmet poutine street food company. We offer our own twist on the Canadian masterpiece that is poutine; our mission is to bring poutine to the UK.

:rockon: ....not I. As I have aged, heat and humidity have become pretty fierce enemies. Though the humidity here is really manageable, we have had 90 degree days routinely here as far as into November for years now. :jasper:

I've only had poutine from like a KFC in Canada. It was not good. I am sure the real thing must be better. :lol:

On a separate note. I don't think Trump is going to have a team ready to govern on Jan. 20. Maybe a man alone can win the presidency, but to run the USA.......

Gridlock is one thing. But complete incompetence is a whole other.

Seems that Trump's election victory has emoldened the racists and bigots this side of the border too.

Yesterday signs were posted in a Toronto neighbourhood urging white people to join the alt-right movement. :no: :mad: :jasper:

Also, a rabbi in Ottawa woke up to a swastika spray painted on the front of the house.

:sad:



@mockbee:KFC is not the place to go for poutine. :jasper:

HEY when you have a temp of 90 degrees with a real feel of 100 in the middle of July....
Actually humidity never bothers me. Unless I'm in the subway which tends to feel like a brick oven. I'll just get keratin treatments to off set frizzy hair

We have been routinely getting 105-107 days in summer......feels like pure hell!

Good on you for the humidity toleration level.....I melt, suffer and am soaked and miserable.

As for the hair day, nothing affects me; I haven't owned a brush or a comb since I was 14 years old. :rockon:

Since the election I find my comments to asshats on Huff Post and other pages getting increasingly nasty.
I'm really not a nasty person. But If I had a $1 for every time I called someone a troglodyte I could move to St Maarten

I have found myself saying nothing, anywhere. I, unlike the lib party line, have absolutely no hope of any reasonable discourse whatsoever. I want more Bannon's appointed and all of his children cleared for top secret intel. The former will fuck up big time and the latter will attempt to monetize on the back of information. Hopefully Article 2 Sec 4 will be enforced sooner than later.

Vince Neil will be performing at the inauguration. :jasper:

This is the best comment. First, I said that I was surprised that the Nuge wasn't asked to perform and someone replied:
