According to this map of the range of Sugar Maple trees, there's more Maple Syrup in both Tennessee and Conneticut than there is in Manitoba.

The Canadian province of Quebec produces most of the World's Maple Syrup, and in Quebec it's a tradition to make candy out of the hot syrup by pouring out a bit of it on the snow and eating it frozen.

I'm thinking I could send you some snow in cardboard boxes, maybe.
I don't believe you. I think your just telling us that so we don't harass you for your syrup.

We have honey processing here in Manitoba. How bout I send you some bee honey, and you can pretend it's Maple Syrup? You can even pour it out into whatever snow you have there and eat it frozen, just like real Maple Syrup.

Home - BeeMaid Honey

PS: The BeeMaid honey plant in Winnipeg is right behind a coffee shop I often go to. Most of the bee keepers in Manitoba take their honey to BeeMaid to be processed and packaged, but some of them also make their own special honey from family recipes and they sell it at a store at the back of the honey plant. That store also sells bee keeper's supplies, bees wax candles, bees wax figurines, wicks and raw bees wax for people to make their own candles, candles wax dyes, books on bees and bee keeping and any crafts that the bee keepers or their family members produce that sell well. Did you know that honey is a natural antibacterial dressing that will prevent open wounds from becoming infected. The reason why is because honey has very little H2O in it that isn't bound up in compounds with sugar molecules. So the lack of free water in honey makes it a inhospitible place for bacteria to grow. Bacteria, just like everything else, need water to survive and multiply. Applying honey to an open would will prevent any bacteria already in the would from multiplying, and prevent any new bacteria from getting into your body.

I'd say that the honey might not make it past your Department of Homeland Security.

After all, they say it was Canada geese that brought down that flight that had to ditch in the Hudson River in New York.

I'd say that the honey might not make it past your Department of Homeland Security. After all, they say it was Canada geese that brought down that flight that had to ditch in the Hudson River, so I expect the Department of Homeland Security has a close eye on the Canadian border now.

But, if they start to hassle me over the suspicious jars of honey, I'll just tell them I was sending it to this guy, and they can just deal with him:

Yeah. Right.

The bear probably just didn't notice you.
