If it was the Log Cabin Republicans, you probably meant Mister Butterworth.

You can be sure our US Liberal Media will blame:

1. Lack of gun control in the US

2. George Zimmerman

3. The break up of the Big East Conference..

For these thefts

I like Pennsylvania maple syrup—which I have never seen for sale outside of Pennsylvania. Most maple syrup sold in California comes from Canada.

Meilleur sirop d’érable ... Ohio ... They are not too fussy about exactly what sap they are using and a bit of the poplars and persimmons give their product une certaine piquance.

Quality, not quantity. From what I’ve read, it’s a lot of work to produce a gallon.

Eastern Townships (SE of Montreal) in the Province of Quebec produce some of the best maple syrup in Canada. This region is immediately north of VT & NH which also produce excellent maple syrup. I’m originally from eastern Canada and as a young boy helped in the gathering of sap from the pails on maple trees, this sap, basically colorless, is boiled down & becomes maple syrup. Great stuff.
