Montreal Bagel Twitter War… Or Is It?
Fairmount Bagel of Montreal started trash-Twittering about their main competitor, St. Viateur. St. Viateur responded.

Then, in true Canadian fashion, the 60-year Montreal bagel rivals kissed and made up. Read the story at CBC News.

Whitey’s Boat Parade Arrives This Saturday
If we lived in the Jacksonville-St. Augustine area of Florida we know what we’d be doing this Saturday at 630 p.m.: attending the 12th annual boat parade at Whitey’s Fish Camp in Orange Park. We’d arrive early enough to get a mess o’ catfish (they serve the ever-more-rare wild cat) before the parade begins, then get in the holiday spirit as we admire the decked out decks. Check out some of the creations from previous parades.
