Subject: BS: Ducks Fly South (and a bit west)
From: Mrs.Duck
Date: 09 Aug 05 - 12:32 PM

Along with a considerable number of other UK catters the Duck family are coming to the Getaway in October. After that we are heading North to Canada through Buffalo and Niagra round the lake to Toronto and then maybe continue round and back south to New York to fly home on 30th October. We would love to meet up with any Mudcatters en route. We are seriously considering moving to canada so need to find out what we think of it. I'd especially like to visit Whitby given our connections with the same named town here. We haven't decided whether to hire a car and use motels or hire a campervan (RV) so any local insight into that would also be very useful.
I'm so excited!!

It's a loverly time of year to tour up through the Northern tier of PA and the southern tier of NY - then up through the finger lakes and around Lake Ontario to Toronto - should be nearly peak "leaf-peeper" season - certain to be so *somewhere* along that route.

Posilutely-- a special privilege for us, as we cannot get away ourselves. Also, if people know you are coming to roost, no doubt others will migrate as well. Do the Ducks care to have the Dorm to themselves or shall we mix you all up a bit? (There are a couple of other rooms in the main house as well.)

Geoff the Duck:

WYSIWYG lives in Pennsylvania, which is home to Troegs' Pale Ale, one of the best beers in the world, IMHO. It's sold in Harrisburg and Gettysburg, though, so I don't know if it's available where WYSIWYG and Hardiman live. In my experience, the U.S. is crawling with good breweries - it's just that they're small and don't get the distribution of Coors, etc.

Check out Whitby, by all means, but you may not find much to remind you of Whitby, England. Charmion and I hope to be at the Getaway and we would be glad to talk to you about your idea of moving to Canada. Of course, we only know a small part of it!

CET, if you and Charmion are here when the Ducks are, you can tell them ALL about Canada.

I do know there is a porter available here, but I can't recall the brand. (Blame Alaska Mike for getting me hooked on it!)

I have friends who have spoken highly of American micro-breweries and their products, but they have also pointed out that because of the near momopoly of a couple of gigantic companies, that they can be difficult to find. Hence my asking now, so that you know that we are interested in the good stuff, and would wish to sample some of it.
I would also be intested in knowing about other brews along our route when we have got a more concrete itinerary.
Quack!

There were two irish men out hunting ducks. For five days they sat by the lake side and saw hundreds of ducks fly over - but they got not a one. On the sixth day one turns to the other and says 'Michael, we've been sitting here for 5 days, seen thousands of ducks fly by but we've got not a one. What is wrong?'. Michael says 'I don't know, John. Do you think we're throwing the dogs high enough?'

When ducks fly south, you might have noticed that they always fly in a V formation.

If you observe carefully, you will see that one arm of the V is always longer than the other arm of the V.

Do you know why this is?

It is because the longer arm of the V usually has more ducks in it.

Ya know, the myth that good American beer is hard to find is hard to deal with. Sure, we have Budweiser and Coors and Millers, but there is also Sam Adams, Alaska Amber, Polygamy Porter, Weiderman's, Sierra, Dead Guy, Moose Drool, Fat Tire (not exported because the English spell "tire" funny), Pete's, Troutslayer, and a LOT of others, some larger producers than others. And that's just the stuff made here -- and it includes IPA types, stouts, and ales as well as lagers.

Canada, on the other hand, only has Molson, Moosehead, and Labatts. Right, eh?

Don't know what it is like where you folks live, but here in Quebec you can go to the local corner store and pick up a six pack of beer , wine or whatever up to 11 at night. In some stores maybe later. No need for bootleggers.
O. K. Rapaire, I'll bite... You know very well we have great beer here in Canada. In fact, we even have that training beer so as to please our American friends(Just kidding of course.). We have Porter, Stout, and some great Micro Brewery stuff that is really pleasing. All to say that when you folks visit, a cold one will be available.
