It's Very Canadian

Traditional knowledge passed down from generation to generation on how to build the perfect igloo is no longer needed this day and age. All you require is some snow and the fun Canadian toy Eskimold, designed by Tundra North Manufacturing Ltd. in Creston, B.C. It is a coloured plexiglass mold specially designed to produce the perfect sized blocks of snow to create an impeccable Canadian igloo about five to six feet wide!
Tres cool... especially since we still have fluffy white stuff on the ground here in Victoria! I reckon snowforts (aka "snowball manufacturing houses") have never been so simple and fun to make...

What?? That is the coolest thing I've ever seen! I've never heard of such a thing before - and guess what? I grew up in Creston!!

You find the greatest stuff!

And thanks so much for your comments - I didn't realize we had so much in common!

I think you have an old soul, and a very true one at that. It comes across in your writing.
