I've recently read a pretty interesting summary on Leo Tolstoy's 'A Confession' from brainpickings.com. Make of it what you wish, but I think I walked away with something to think about even if I don't fully agree with Tolstoy's description of the path of acceptance.

Decided to take a small road trip to Vermont to get some delicious local beer and try a local restaurant called the Prohibition Pig. Were not disappointed. Amazing local flavoured food with a huge array of on tap beer. I tried a beer called "Duchesse De Bourgogne" which is a Flanders Red Ale, and by god it made love to my mouth. It was sour rather than bitter and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Together with a local roast beef dish it turned out absolutely amazing.

By Oli's recommendation we spent the night at a beautiful little BNB called the Old Stage Coach. Basically an old couple that owns a farm home from 1863 lends you a room for the night. The whole place is creaky, drafty and delightful. So much quilted surfaces, cushions and the whole place is crowded with old-ish furniture. Amazing vibe, cheap, AND, they give you full breakfast for free. None of that continental bullshit, I'm talking all out omelettes, any style eggs, sausage, bacon, ham, pancakes, you name it. Highly recommended.

We planned on spending the day roaming Burlington on satureday, but because of unexpected (by us) snow, we made a quick visit to the main street and decided to take a long round about way back to Montreal through the South and North Hero islands. No regrets there. Amazing New England view, great american roads and we stopped at the North Hero general store for some home made sandwiches. Delicious.

Oh, and to top it all off, we ran into the google street view car in Burlington and took some quick pictures. Would be funny to see if end up on street view in a couple years.

Went to visit Pascale in Ottawa and we decided to go for a walk along the river bank. That and couple hilarious pumpkins we found hanging out by the side of the road.

Some quick pics from the office halloween party:

Oli as Bob Ross, Maeghan as Pop Art, and Vero as some kind of Pokemon (can't be sure about that one)

My colleagues were joking around that it'd be nice to have an emergency mic laying around, you know, in case you make a point so sick you just have to drop the mic. So Oli bought a mic and Maeghan made a box.
