Or was beaten by a nose :tizzy:

Congrats to Jo who did manage the first pm into my Inbox to declare Bingo! Jo, I will be in touch with you soon re prize!

Gary - I will connect with you soon as well. Only 9 minutes separated your message from Jo's, so there is definitely something for you, too!

I am on my ipad at the moment, which I do not find works well with the forum. Look for me to share the 4 last words as soon as I can get to a computer.

I have learned heaps too even thought I didn't participate. Thanks Linda Rose for sharing a little bit of Canada with us.

Hopefully later in January or February I will be able to join in the bingo games - prior to then far too much to do. :D

Congrats Jo and Gary!!!

:applesauce: :applesauce: :applesauce: And Linda, you did an outstanding job hosting your first Bingo. I've learned a lot of new words spoken by our neighbors to the north...now I need a trip up north so I can sound like I know of what I speak. :-)

Re: Let's Play Canadianisms Bingo

Good morning.

In no particular order, here are the remaining words from our original list:

28. Tuque
A type of hat with a narrow brim or no brim at all. Popular from the 13th to the 16th century in Europe, especially France, now it is primarily known as the traditional headgear for professional cooks, except in Canada where the term is primarily used for knit caps.
Pictures: https://www.google.ca/search?q=canadian ... IDUw&dpr=1" target="_blank

16. Pablum
Pablum is a processed cereal for infants originally marketed by the Mead Johnson Company in 1931. The trademarked name is a contracted form of the Latin word pabulum, which means "foodstuff". The name had long been used in botany and medicine to refer to nutrition or substances of which the nutritive elements are passively absorbed. Pablum was developed by Canadian pediatricians Frederick Tisdall, Theodore Drake, and Alan Brown, in collaboration with nutrition laboratory technician Ruth Herbert (all of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto), along with Mead Johnson chemist Harry H. Engel. The cereal marked a breakthrough in nutritional science: it helped prevent rickets, a crippling childhood disease, by ensuring that children had sufficient vitamin D in their diet. Although neither Pablum nor its biscuit predecessor was the first food designed and sold specifically for babies, it was the first baby food to come precooked and thoroughly dried. The ease of preparation made Pablum successful in an era when infant malnutrition was still a major problem in industrialized countries.

2. Boxing Day
Observed annually on December 26 in Canada, Boxing Day was traditionally the day employers would give their staff Christmas presents, called "boxes," to celebrate the season. In Canada, as well as the U.K. and Australia, December 26 is now better known as a day for scooping up shopping deals, similar to Black Friday in the U.S. Most stores open their doors early and discount prices on items ranging from clothing to technology to appliances.

26. Toboggan

A toboggan is a simple sled which is a traditional form of transport used by the Innu and Cree of northern Canada. In modern times, it is used on snow to carry one or more people (often children) down a hill or other slope for recreation. Designs vary from simple, traditional models to modern engineered composites. A toboggan differs from most sleds or sleighs in that it has no runners or skis (or only low ones) on the underside. The bottom of a toboggan rides directly on the snow. Some parks include designated toboggan hills where ordinary sleds are not allowed and which may include toboggan runs similar to bobsleigh courses.
The traditional toboggan is made of bound, parallel wood slats, all bent forward at the front to form a sideways 'J' shape. A thin rope is run through the top of the loop to provide rudimentary steering. The front-most rider places their feet in the loop and sits on the flat bed; any others sit behind them and grasp the waist of the person before them.
Modern recreational toboggans are typically manufactured from wood or plastic. Larger, more rugged models are made for commercial or rescue use.

Thanks to everyone for participating. I hope we all meet to play again in the next round. Let's all try to bring a friend as well.

Thank you to Linda for hosting
A very informative game,
We've learned a lot and now we know
What lies behind a name.

I'm getting inspiration
On what my game will be.
'But what's the topic?' you're asking,
You'll have to wait and see.

So give me a day or maybe two
To get it all together.
Then off we'll go and play again
No matter what the weather!
Jo x

Thank you for the voucher
I've spent it on a chart
It's gone on something special,
Quite a work of art.

I promise that I'll show you
The lovely one I chose.
It's for my mother's birthday
A lovely English Rose :rose:

Gary has received a gift certificate to HAED, his favorite designer.

Thanks again to all who played. Even I learned a thing or two about Canada while investigating the so called Canadianisms. Glad you found it fun. I hope you all get a chance to visit (or come back home?)at some time.

Finally some time to ask - where in southern Ontario did you grow up? And how did you make your way to Vermont?
