Not a beaver's tail per say.

it is more of a deepfried pancake you eat with various toppings such as brown sugar and lemon, garlic sauce or nutella. We Canadians love our junk food.

A toque is a winter hat, usually with a little puff on top. Properly worn either crooked or just on top of the head (Google Bob and Doug Mackenzie if you are ever bored).

Recipe for Poutine? Pour liquid fat on deepfried fat and milk fat. It's a good recipe.

Yes, but it must be hand made by a relative (crazy aunts usually) and must come in bizarre colour combinations.

Ah yes, and I happen to be one of those crazy aunts, thank you!! And my touques have lasted at least a decade with wear and tear ^_^

Sure, complain. You won't be when you're ears are going black in the cold!! 8-)

Never wore a hat in minus 60° off the coast of East Siberia.

Ah but would you be wearing in that in Alberta, where the cold is dry and just walking between buildings needs a 20m rest to warm up any exposed skin for fear of frost bite? :lol:

I can understand you not wearing a hat, but the little-uns!!! oh my gods the little-uns!! My niece insisted on throwing snowballs without gloves... Her poor little hands were red and raw but she didn't care????

Nah, we're not the coldest in the world, but everyone seems to think so.

Aha. Frozen snacks for canibals. 8-) :roll:

Must admit, my Granny was a HARD bu***r, as you already know. But the only time I saw her with tears in her eyes was when she had been out birthing reindeer, and washing them in snow. Then washing her hands in snow. THEN pulling logs, obviously covered in snow and ice, for two or three hours.

THEN making the mistake, 30 seconds after walking through the front door, of, not THINKING, and plunging her hand into hot bath water to rescue a spider.

THAT you do NOT EVER wish on your worst enemy!!!

The vet that was there (ALSO the local doctor. (They tend to study both that far North), due to the birthing, gave her a half reindeer dose of morphine. After she woke up, the next day, she was still in pain, but "bare able" with Ibuprofen (Called that in Canada?) in LARGE amounts.

Oh gods... My SO did something similar, and he vomited. This from a man who had no trouble when he lopped off his finger.

Your granny was one tough woman!

It's a beanie.........oh sorry joke me and my brother-in-law have(he's from Canada). Beanie is what most people call it here in the U.S.

But to the OP. I agree with others that it was a good idea to walk away from someone like that. There are some strange people out there that try to take advantage of people.

Is it ok if I find this situation slightly funny, but I agree with most people here. You did the right thing, you should only join a group unless you really want to. That what I believe, though I know about six people who would tell you should join because it the only way to really learn anything. But brushing those ideas away hex: . You actually contact her again and info her that the offer was nice, but forcing someone people to join a group is kinda rude and that they would probably run away from her.
