Happy 150th Canada!

Happy birthday to my wonderful country and my fellow Canadians. It is hard to believe that it has been 50 years since the Centennial. I remember on the last day of school we had a huge ceremony and we sang this song!

Yes, Craig, Newfies are counted as Canadians...just a half hour later than the rest of us!

(You may have to be Canadian to get that joke!

Um, LP, wouldn't they greet the the holiday a half-hour before the rest of Canada? After all, Newfoundland IS the eastern-most part of Canada.

Even as a kid I always thought of the maritime islands as being part of Canada. Happy Birthday to our good neighbors north of us. From one neighbor south of you who never considered you as just the northern part of our own country. I always have known the difference.

But I did have some strange ideas of Canada growing up. I thought you had snow all year long. No summers at all. Also, all Native Americans were only in the lower 48. None lived in Canada. I also thought Quebec was a separate country because the spoke French. But the most silly one of all was that you had no cars because they would freeze up all the time and everyone used dog sleds.

But have no fear. As I learned international geography in later years, I learned just how wrong I was. And I found out also what great neighbors we had.

CG, the old joke has always been "The world will end at noon tomorrow... 12:30 in Newfoundland! It was probably some West Coasters who made it up! But technically yes, they would be first!
