Zane - I'll keep my fingers crossed that you guys don't get the weather we have been having. Snow the last three days!!!! There wouldn't be any syrup or maple sap flowing in these temps!!! They are still telling us that spring is coming! Can't wait!!!!

Zane - When I grew up in Southern Ontario, we used to watch Maple Syrup being made at the Kortwright center and eat some tasty pancakes. It's a great time of the year and the smells are fantatstic! We have bath tub races in Florida too :-). This is the winning team in Port Canaveral.
