Glad to see that you're promoting a product from my part of the world! For me, Liberté yogourt has always been a special treat, only bought when it was on sale. I've been trying to find the perfect coffee flavor (Astro's Balkan coffee is my best) but the caffe latte flavor of Liberté comes in second place.

A set of rather cheap Andy Warhol plates, in plastic. I bought them for decoration but they kept falling off the wall. At night, not fun. But I don't want to eat in them, I don't want to scratch them!

Oh I feel your pain. My advice goes along with what everyone else said. You should get a piece of art you really like and place it somwhere central. Your eyes will shift towards something you find pretty and it'll motivate you, I tested it!

Giving lettuce a cold, cold wash, helps it stay crispier. Soaking it in cold water is still the best. I put my washed lettuce in a grocery plastic bag, with a piece of paper towel and tie the top loosely. It really keeps the freshness and it doesn't "compress" the lettuce like a ziploc.

My bunny chewed through my cell phone wire. But lucky, all you have to do is strip the plastic around it and retie the two wires inside. Mine still works even though it looks like hell!

Never leave wires on the ground. I tape them underneath tables or along the wall. Plus, it makes less clutter!

That's the Plateau alright! I love how Montreal houses, even when not painted, are all different shades of brownstone.

Wow, my beloved Bambou would love this. Alas he has the small and boring cage but he's always out-he's lying on my bed now, chewing his blanket. It's true that they need a lot of out-time but watching him all comfy and relaxed right now makes me the happiest pet owner ever.

I used to live in a 1950-ish Montreal apartment. Most of the plugs weren't "grounded" and they were in the stupidest places. Then one by one, they started failling and my dad opened one up; we discover old, old old copper wires all discheveled and wrapped in a kind of fabric. He said "okay, I am not playing with this, it's too dangerous."

I'm so glad I moved out of this place!

Each year my mom uses Mason jars to make her famous home-made tomato sauce. Last year we made 76 liters! The jars are distributed throughout the family, used as each pleases and then returned the next year for another sauce-fest!

I use them for storing sugar, chocolate chips, brown sugar, flour, etc. Not coffee though, since coffee should be kept in the dark.

Imagine the scene: you're pondering on how to lead a country and while your eyes wander in your office, you see dead stuff everywhere. Chilling. Get some houseplants instead!

It's so nice seeing that the amazing AT team started posting about Montreal apartments. It truly is a magnificent city; if I had a slightly better looking one, I'd send pictures!

And DO move in Montreal. You won't regret it!
