Newfie lingo ("how are ya getting on, boy?"Its another way of asking: how are ya, man?

On a Wednesday (April 18, 2012) afternoon in St. John’s, N.L., Justin Emberley saw a 45-metre iceberg floating less than 100 feet from shore in Quidi Vidi Harbour. He and a friend (a Ph.D. student studying glacier modeling) put on their wetsuits and life vests, threw their ice picks and clamp-ons in their bags, jumped in the frigid ocean and swam to the iceberg. Both men are avid rock climbers so climbing the ice was not too difficult.

For three weeks I was in Newfoundland and had Purity crackers -- jam jams with Red Rose tea midmorning, cream crisps with cheese and jam for lunch, a few milk lunch biscuits with tea in the afternoon and Brewis for supper made with Hard Bread.  Cannot find in the States.  I miss them.

Gotta have the cookies/crackers with a nice hot cup of Tetley tea. Don't forget the Eversweet margarine for the crackers!

Hell yeah !!

Born A Newfie, Always A Newfie'. Love our Newfies, friendliest people in Canada, want to go out there someday.
