  • "Great Canadian Picnic"

    Hey Norm: Check out www.canadianpicnic.com They've done this every year in Phoenix since 1953. Think I'll stop by and get a cup of Tim Horton Coffee! Better dust off my clubs!

      CWagner: Yeah, there was a big feature on the morning Local new this morning about it. Golf Tournament at Stonecreek in Paradise Valley (very affluent part of town). Burnaby, BC., Calgary, Ab., and Kingston, Ont., are all sister cities of Phoenix and surrounding communities. They figure 500,000 come every winter to escape the cold up north, and 92,000 have made Arizona their new home. It's a sure bet, the next head of lettuce you bite into, was grown in Yuma, Az.

      Stay warm my friend, it's already 73F here (it's tough, somebody's got to do it.)

          If I get off work in time Sat, I might swing by the picnic, it's on my way home from work, and it's FREE!

          Stay Warm

              "XL Double Double"

              Dan: Will do! Thanks. I see your Flames are in 1st. The 'Yotes are hanging in there, barely. Back in the late 80's, wasn't a bigger rivalry than the Oilers & Flames (maybe the Leafs & Habs).

              Stay warm

                      And Dave, don't forget to be polite when you order that XL Double Double. Because all of us up here expect at least a" thank you" or "sorry about that" when you order. LOL

                        Ya that was great hockey!! it still gets good sometimes but nothing like it was back then. I love it when the desert dogs beat Edmonton It makes me feel good all day long the next day!! Doan is from Alberta I think. I have my Flames flag on my welding truck when I drive through Edmonton, to work up north They like to flip the bird in and around the Edmonton area

                        we get chinook winds alot here so we are alot warmer then the rest of Alberta, it can get down -40 here but it doesnt last long, like today it was +10 here today

                            +10?

                            Now, was that C or F? Either way, that's a VERY COLD day! It does get cold up in Northern Az., but it always warms up. We've got another storm coming in this weekend, so I'm sure it will dump some more snow up in Flagstaff. It's +61F here as we speak.

                            There's almost too many teams in the NHL now, I can't keep up with them all.
                            Might stir up some controversy with this one, but the best player in the "Modern Era?" For durability, size, strength, speed, agility, vision of the game, leadership skills. I would have to say............Mark Messier.

                            Modern day Gordie Howe. Got to admit, the guy won Cups where ever he went and lasted.
