I think when there's passion involved Brattcat, the product just has to be the best. Is it only available in the States, or is it exported..if it's on my supermarket shelve I would love to try it.

Ok, cut to the chase.
Let's just get that maple syrup on that vanilla ice cream?
Nice portrait. Sweet!

There is a lot more going into that little bottle on the breakfast table than one would expect.

Hi, dearest Brattcat!
I'm trying to catch up your blog, I love your new wooly girl! i'm very surprised to still see so much snow in your pics at this time of the year!
And maple syrup brings delicious memories to my mind and to my mouth! :o)

You've caught some of that passion in this portrait. I have no real notion as to what's involved in this industry but I'd guess technology has made the job easier.

He looks like a man who is satisfied with his life choices.

That's a far cry from the wood-burning fire under the evaporator in the woods.

I like the portrait and rustic tech. He seems very at ease with himself.
