Yvonnie,

I actually had forgot about this post and when I had that big thunderstorm that cut my satellite signal (my mom who rarely sits down to watch tv is still angry about that...we never caught it on replay...maybe 1 day...the first half was boring but we stick with it and the second half was interesting...id like to know that ending...it was When Ghosts Attack..the first episode) I for some reason thought about it so I came here.

I love farmer's markets, none here eventhough there's lots of farms! There was one in the middle of a parking lot two or three years ago, it lasted a few days and they had almost nothing available, it was ridiculous to say the least.

Well, I'm happy you renewed the conversation in this thread. I love almost all types of weather. I can't think of any weather Chicago has that I do not like.

Hoping to head back to Quebec sometime this summer. My daughters & I want to work on our French. We are thinking that a week or two could certainly help.

Yvonnie,

I hope you and your daughter don't get attacked when in Quebec. People here are crazy (ignorant by choice). They love to either laugh of the accent of the people talking in French when it's not their language or they look at you like they want to kill you or they verbally attack you if it's not physically.

One day if I have the chance to get out of this hellhole I will take it!

By the way my first language is French so I more than know what I'm talking about. I was brainwashed when young like all the people born here in families that only speak French, my first vote I wasted in the last referendum to separate. I woke up aabout one year after I started watching Hockey, Montreal was my first team, about a year of the so-called fans and it was enough to wake me up.

65 F / 18 C and rainy and windy. This would be great except that we have baseball tickets for tonight.

Yvonnie, the farmer's market sounds great!

Nancy, I didn't know Quebec was like that. That's too bad. I hope things are better in Montreal at least.

Val,

Montreal is a little better because there are people in that city who speak other languages and also there are French Quebecers who decided to learn other languages, these people are not like separatists, they are respectful of other cultures.

One other thing about separatists is that you hear them talk about French and how it is the best language of the world and the only one that truely matter but the majority of them speak and write it badly.

For them learning another language and accepting other cultures is like their own language and culture is taken away.

Thankfully the separatist party lost the last elections (they got beat so bad that the party leader lost her county so she left the party...lol) so all that separatist talk has calmed down a little bit.

They even have people who their job is to walk around and mesure the words in English and French to make sure that the words in French are bigger then the words in English.

They tried to force someone to censor her Facebook page, everyone and everything in her company us 100% in both languages but they freaked out about the comments on her page from her English speaking customers, thankfully she decided to speak to a lawyer about it and before they lost (Facebook is not a Quebec territory) they made it look like they were letting her Facebook page like she wanted to.

They are crazy!

Oh, my. I'm starting to see why you'd want to get away, Nancy, especially if you've lived there for a while. It sounds like the small town provincialism that happens in isolated places all over the world where outsiders are held in suspicion and everyone has to conform. I'm glad to hear the separatist issue has calmed down. I know almost nothing about the issue but my first thought is that it would hurt both parts of Canada economically if it went though. Not that I know what I'm talking about, really! smile

Val,

If I would have to take a bet I would bet that noone in charge of that party really wants to separate (the ones who started it i believe they really wanted to), they sound and look stupid but they are not, they know that if Quebec would separate it won't last long and it would be much worst than it is now.

The last referendum they lost because of the question. It was very long and in it they included that they wanted to keep Canadian money, passport and almost everything else from Canada. So that made the real separatists angry and the long question confused the rest of the people who would be for it.

I always say to the Canadians who are tired of them that it would be worst if they would live here.

I have no idea why but the Canadian government is always bending themselves for my province.

Nancy, that is fascinating. The whole situation sounds similar to the situation between Northern Ireland and the rest of Ireland, except without the extreme violence, thank God.

Temperature here is 60 F / 16 C, cloudy, breezy, and cool. We actually had our baseball game rained out last night and that never happens! Very weird weather this year, but believe me, we were desperate for water so everybody's happy.
