I don't care. I'm not the one doing it. The memsahib wants to do it. My one and only contribution will be to select the trees and put in the taps. Then I am back to doing tax returns and getting my pannenkoeken at IHOP. :)

That's what my dad always called pancakes. He was born here but 100% Nederlander. I could not tell you if my grandparents were off the boat or if it went back more generations. His father died in the flu epidemic in the early 20th century and his mother was not big on family history. My mom had quite a mix in her family so I can only boast 50%. I have some inflections in my speech that drive my family nuts. Most notably milk. I pronounce it MELK and always have. They keep correcting me. Want me to say MILL-K. I can't get my tongue around it. :)

Thank you, Dave. That is quite a story.
An uncle (born in 1925, younger brother of my Dad) and aunt of mine emigrated to Canada in 1952, and yes, travelling by boat. They proudly became "Canadians by Choice"; never lost their Dutch accent (inflection, LOL) though. They were a lovely couple and I stayed with them for nearly six months in 1977 while doing a training/internship, which helped me getting my BSc in Mechanical Engineering with honors.

Yeah...I'm just kidding. I can handle it. I make my own tomato paste from scratch. You want to talk about a back breaker. Stuff scorches way too easy. You can't walk away for a minute toward the end or it is ruined.
