Next time you are in NB, any grocery store has Bovril. It is marketed by Best Foods, so it should be available stateside. Until then OXO is a good substitute. Maggi or Knorr is also excellent.
Unfortunately, all of these products are very high in sodium, so we use it in moderation.
Em and I are about 2 hours away from St. John. Or, 25 minutes from the Nova Scotia border. Dieppe is one of the tri-communities in the Greater Moncton area. Riverview is the other community in the group.
As for Cub-Fest Northeast, well, I can respond as our better halves are the ones who made our first effort a success
There will not be one this year due to my illness. I will post on the Cub Forum what I hope will happen for next year.
However, just because Cub-Fest is not on this year, that is no excuse why you and Bev could not pop in for a visit
Coffee and good stuff is always on and of course there are things to visit as well that we won't mention ok?
As for health, it is coming. I see the docs tomorrow morning for a chest scan and hopefully I will get permission to start doing things slowly.
