The biggest issue preventing me from considering this is the lack of a siren...

This is favorite all-round beer. We're moving back west in 6 weeks, and I'm looking forward to having it around again!

I like Jamie Oliver and all but I mean...just get a toaster oven! It toasts bread too!

I worked for a large corporation in Canada, and maternity leave was full pay for 9 months (EI portion the difference paid by the company). Even paternity leave was quite generous...I was given a month at 75% of my pay up to 55k. Daycare in Quebec is $7/day...so it varies across Canada but in general it's much cheaper than the amount we'll be paying now that we're back in the US.

What about throwing things at the TV? I was considering getting TV Armor or making something similar myself...

I used Brooklyn's Black Chocolate Stout in a beef stew and it was excellent!

Trois Pistoles is definitely my favorite unibroue beer. Also, the beer that unibroue makes for Trader Joes is quite good too.

@kittystockings: Sorry it is only in French, but there is a good list of Quebec cideries here: http://www.tourisme-monteregie.qc.ca/site/index.php?s=cidres. I don't know if any are available outside of Quebec though...I've never seen them in the US myself. The ciders and apple spirits from Michel Jodoin are good. The cider Mystique by Verger du Minot is popular and can be found on tap in Montreal, but I find it a bit sweet for my tastes.

I've made lots of cider the last few years, and love the stuff. I recently moved to the same town as the cider maker who was featured in Botany of Desire, Farnum Hill. Their ciders are absolutely fantastic if you can find them!

They do this here in Quebec...they paid me $60 for my old refrigerator and hauled it, AND I got a $50 rebate on the new energy star one!

It would be nice to get a live performance from the singing alien in the 5th element, in recip I'd have to pick something from Aida.

Probably Pi or Gladiator but there are a lot of good ones already on this list like Black Orpheus, Garden State, Sound of Music, Clockwork Orange, 2001. LOL about Top Gun.
