Baby its cold outside!

Good Friday Morning!

SeasonalColdGuy

It is another frosty morning in Muskoka -33 degrees F!!!  That’s before the windchill has been factored in which then makes it around -40 something!!  School buses were cancelled once already this week due to the extreme cold.  Daughter #2 is in the middle of exams and luckily wrote her Science exam yesterday and has today off because… I’m thinking buses may be cancelled again today.  (which they were not)

We have had Bentley with us this week, which means not too many blog posts.  When Bentley is visiting I need to put the cats food up on the dining room table where I have my laptop, the cats love to torment him from up high which upsets Scampie which in turn upsets Sims which means I don’t get much peace and quiet.

This morning is unusually quiet so I’ve been able to post what I think is a fantastic recipe for a Hot Obama!!

hot oboma

“I created the Hot Obama cocktail at JoeDoe to satisfy the hot toddy drinkers during the wintertime. It’s hot (temperature), tart, and a little sweet, and is the perfect start to a meal at JoeDoe. The dust of cinnamon gives it a little spice.  And the name, well, whether Obama is ‘hot’ or ‘not’ to you right now, you’ll still like the drink.”

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) English harbour rum
  • 1 ounce(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 3 ounce(s) hot apple cider
  • 1 ounce(s) hot water
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon

Mix together all ingredients. Grate fresh cinnamon over top. Garnish with cinnamon stick. Serve in a heat-resistant glass mug.

What will Angie Do? – Haiku of Sorts…

The LCBO
May go on strike this Friday!!
What will Angie Do???

LCBO2

 

Long lines of anxious drinkers formed in liquor stores across Ontario today ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend as a midnight strike deadline for store workers looms.

Shoppers in Ontario looking to stock up on wine and spirits reported massive lines at Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) locations and shopping carts filled to the brim with more than a weekend’s worth of booze.

With the strike deadline nearing, the Ontario government is still hopeful there won’t be a walkout by LCBO employees. If it goes ahead, it will be the first strike to impact the LCBO in its 87-year history.

Why are they going on strike?

At issue are wages and benefits, job security, and health and safety standards. The union is also concerned about the treatment of part-time workers. Some workers have complained about the lack of opportunities for full-time employment

How long since the last strike?

There has never been a strike in the LCBO’s 86-year history. However, a walk-out was narrowly averted four years ago, boosting liquor sales to $56 million the day before workers were set to walk out—the largest in LCBO history.
