    Okay, so that's our topic for today.
    Toques.
    Take off to the Great White North
    Take off, it's a beauty way to go
    Good day, eh?

    (Sorry about that, but every time I hear the word "toque", I think of the "Great White North" show with Doug and Bob McKenzie.)

    Everytime I hear the word Toque, I think Toke, then flash back to giggly days combating cotton mouth and the munchies.

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    Kirk, the only person I ever knew personally who used "eh" like the fictitious MacKenzie brothers was my own father. I would say to him something like, "I failed Math again" and his response, after looking up from his newspaper, would be a rather surprised, "EH?!?"

    If you want to indulge in a REAL Great White North experience, try getting a case of beer, preferably Moosehead, and drink it straight from the bottle, Canadian style. Or come to Ottawa and have a Beaver Tail while strolling along the Rideau Canal, which isn't quite frozen yet. Soon, we hope, in time for Winterfest...

    Good grief, NOBODY talks like those two did on that show!!!

    Actually my inlaws up in BC do the "eh" about a thousand times a day. I even start doing it if I am around them too much.

    Dennis.

    My wife calls our stocking caps tukes. It has rubbed off on me. Tuke was my misspellling. I am an American. That is my American spelling. Toque would be toke to me.

    That also accounts for the different spelling of a financial instrument: In the US its check, in Canada it's cheque, same pronounciation.

    That's okay, Dennis; it's surprising just how many Canadians can't spell it properly! I have also seen it spelled T-U-Q-U-E, as in La Tuque, a city in Quebec about 180 miles from Montreal.

    There must be an open air source unless you wish to call the mortician.

    May I suggest one of the liquid filled electric heaters? It helps to insulate the darkroom also. Floor, ceiling and walls. Heat requirement is minimal if insulated.
