Another week passed and another weekend came where I headed for the Northern Peninsula. This time I made it a little further and found an interesting house.

I would probably rank this 5 out of 10.

Happy Discovery Day to all!

Since I have a holiday today to celebrate Cabot's 1497 discovery of NL, I figured I would edit some pictures and tell some stories.

So here's an update which I would rank 4 out of 10! A couple fishing shacks and a weaksauce lighthouse? Yay!

Then again, you're probably at work, so in between refreshing the facebook home page and checking the weather network, you might as well read this.

The fact that Newfòundland is an island and has only been a Canadian province for 60 years; means that there are plenty of foods and customs which you will only find on 'The Rock.'

Within this group of Newfòundland foods and drinks are items of various quality; but one of the things they get absolutely right is Pineapple Crush.


Pineapple Crush is so, so very good. To the point of where you wonder why the rest of Canada doesn't have it. I'm not even a big pop drinker, yet I get excited and actually go out of my way for Pineapple Crush.

Also, the 3 people who I've had come visit me, have all enjoyed Pineapple Crush.

Another unique thing they have is Mary Brown's*.

Mary Brown's is a greasy tater/chicken place and while I love taters; they produce the worse taters possible. Every time I've went to Mary Brown's, they've been lukewarm, salty & mediocre.

For such an easy formula of deep fried potatoes, they sure find a way to mess it up.

Also, I've had one of their chicken wings just to try and it was pretty much on par with KFC. I'm not a big fried chicken man, so take that advice for what it's worth.

*Just now I googled Mary Brown's and found they have 2 locations in Nova Scotia & plenty in Alberta & Ontario.
I never knew this and I do know that Windsor is often skipped over by franchises for some odd reason.

So now you know you can have some Mary Brown's when you're in London, Ontario or Dartmouth, Nova Scotia as well.

Lucky you.

I'm going to try and 'rate' each of the upcoming updates, since some of these NFLD updates might be a little stale. I know The Fondelah has voiced that my site is "fucking boring as shit" when I get away from drunkenness and random stories...but that's just how it's going to have to be while I'm here.

That being said, I'd say this is probably a 6.5 - it's going to be fresh, there's something I get inside and most of y'all want to finally see some NFLD pictures...(Read more)
