A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Happy Canada Day

Just wanted to say that. After all, if I'm going to be up at five on the long-weekend Sunday of our national holiday, I might as well do something useful.

What's appropriate for a Canada day post? I thought initially a tune called "Don't You Wish Your Country Was Cool Like Us?" would fit the bill, but no-one's written one yet.

So you get Stompin' Tom.



More Canadian than that, you won't find in a hurry. And now I must retire to consume our best-known export; and beer. Have a happy and peaceful Canada day.

Nice. Way better that what I'm listening to on the CBC's coverage of the Parliament Hill festivities.

Parliament Hill is presently suffering an infestation. I suspect most of it is country fans anyway. They all seem like bolo-tie and big-belt-buckle Hummer drivers.

Yeah, what I saw looked really ridiculous.

When did this get posted? I've been looking for Stompin' Tom for ages!

FYI in Vancouver we had twenty minutes of government sponsored fireworks, and quite a lot of them were in the shape of pot leaves! Some Yanks got disgusted and left.

Do you think he ever got shin splints?

Btw, you've been tagged Metro (would've tagged Mme Metro but she seems rather busy these days...)

5 reasons why I blog

We get those same-shaped fireworks here Rain, but I always thought they were palm trees.

Raincoaster, he's entirely all over YouTube. Margo's Cargo is a lotta fun to watch.

The meme's gotta wait, for reasons outlined above regarding small infestations of my home. Can it wait for a week? Maybe two?
