| Canadian bacon || Nov 6, 2003 |
Is it from Canadian pigs ? It's called back bacon here, as opposed to side bacon -- but in England it's known as gammon instead of streaky, and sometimes peameal bacon.
It's cured, lean, delicious -- but is it Canadian ?
And the Canada goose (many of whom are flying above me now, heading South, lucky things)-- does it remain a Canada goose while it swims in warmer waters to the south ?
I spent a couple of years in the UK as a young girl, but the only time I got news of Canada is when that nut job shot up 14 girls at the Polytechnique in Montreal Dec 5 1989, a day observed in these parts for that tragedy.
And we celebrate Thanksgiving here, only 6 weeks sooner than our southern neighbours. I suspect that's so people can travel about to visit their families under colourful foliage rather than the white stuff... brrr

| Kanadahanhi, yes! || Nov 7, 2003 |
Canadian goose often find their way to Scandinavia and are called kanadahanhi in Finnish. I'm no bird-watcher, though.
The "news" of the fish-rescue was reported here too, in the yellow press at least, I just wonder how it works, because fish have no lungs.
For Finns of course the most outrageous thing are foreign "Finnish" saunas, barely warm and steam-throwing forbidden, sometimes part of brothels!
