#25 refers to the Maritime provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. (Trivia: Those three plus the province of Newfoundland and Labrador constitute "Atlantic Canada"; NL is omitted from the Maritimes because it's separate from them by the Gulf of St. Lawrence.)

Re #89: Canadian iced tea is sweet, rather like in the southeastern US states. I learned to ask for "Yankee iced tea." :-)

I feel educated! Then no, no Maritime lobsters for me!

That is a rather impressive showing, Peaches! I hereby make you an honourary Canadian. You're now required to get a big hat.

Wheee, big hat!
