You'll never look at them they same way once you deep fry one! I cook a 16lb turkey in 3 gallons of peanut oil at 375 degrees. Ready to eat in just under 35 minutes! The taste is so different, you can't believe it is turkey! Getting ready to cook a couple next week when the New England Patriots (Superbowl bound!) take to the field!

Re. Say Hello here

Hi Jimmy, When you stand at the corner of Church & Wellington next week, can
you still see the Place Ville Marie in the distance.? Because that's where I
first met you in 1960 when I started in the elevator trade. And at times I was
your helper so how's your memory. Take care Jim, From Bob Archie

High School Year Books

I tried searching for high school year books on, and found
nothing on both their US and Canadian sites. Maybe I am not doing a
correct search, or no one wishes to part with their treasured Y.Bs.
If anyone would like to sell their Verdun High Y.B. or loan it to me
I'll make copies), I would be very happy. I need the years 1953 through
Also if you could scan your copy and post it here or email me direct
that would be good too.
Have a most excellent Christmas.
