    Only in Canada you say.... Pity

    If you don't remember that old Red Rose tea ad, then you probably never lived in Canada.

    If you do live in Canada you might find this interesting.

    I'm now able to sell the Zeiss Ikon Rangefinder system in Canada. I have the prices listed on my website.

    I have some stock we can play with coming in by this weekend... send me an email if you have any interest.

    Actually I living in Sudbury for a few years as a kid.... we had two stations.... CBC French and CBC English... I'm not sure if the French station had the ads or not.... if you watched that station you became a Canadiens fan, while the rest of the world were ... dare I say it out-loud... Leaf fans.

    For years I was able to purchase Red Rose tea down here in NYC in just about any supermarket. Used to even have a collection of those little porcelin "charms" they put in the boxes.

    Not sure if I can still get it - but only because I haven't looked. My wife has "improved" my tea tastes beyond the orange pekoe blends so nowadays I favor a nice smoky Lapsong Suchang from one of the "specialty" purveyors!

    Still do! My dad said "they'll be worth something someday...and they actually are. Saw some in poorer shape than mine at an antique(!) store. I think they wanted $10 each.

    This is good news Rob and the pricing is competitive too. Cool.

    MHV: you can tell the ex montrealers living here in Southern Ontario as they still root for the Habs and needle their Leafs fans buddies.

    As the saying goes you can tell it's spring because the buds are out.
