I started today with an all Canadian stick to your ribs breakfast of oatmeal, yogurt, cinnamon and fresh fruit. Sherry makes her own special breakfast combination. I thought I made good porridge, but I don't hold a candle to this for delightful flavour. As we ate and chatted over lattes, we enjoyed the sounds of fire trucks as the local …
