Quite staggeringly popular in this manor, squire

Interesting Ottawa facade

So I curtailed my Walpoling activites, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles.

One thing I miss about England is the cheese. While there are equally good premium cheeses in Canada, the average quality of normal cheese is much better over there. The store brand will include Cheshire, Wensleydale, Cheddar, Double Gloucester, Red Leicester, and others and they will all be a lot more enjoyable than the standard can’t – tell – if – this – is – Cheddar – or – Mozzarella variant that seems to sell best by bulk here.

When I return to graduate (eventually), I will have to make a point of enjoying them.

There are cheese wars here. It is worse than BC even. I know of a good shop in the market but the vendor shorted me ten dollars once and wouldn’t return me the money once I had corrected him. Wow, how to lose a customer! Anyway just giv exact change and I’m sure you’ll find loads of good cheese.

Funny, Rob Sommers was very particular about his cheese as well.
