And PS - I told my boss where I'm freelancing I was wearing one of my Canadian hats tomorrow. I've got a nice one picked out with a maple leaf, the word CANADA written on it and two pins: A trillium and the (former) City of Trenton (now Quinte West), Ontario.

Our restaurant has a partial open kitchen. I'm pretty much the 'showcase.'

i thought it was a day for drinking good beer, smoking bad cigarettes, and sitting on your oil sands, grinning from ear to ear, just waiting for the u.s. to say canada rules, and we smell...

happy canada day. now please come get your geese.

Happy Canada Day, everyone!!!

I love this day so much, and this year it holds even more meaning for me because we get to be here (on Canadian soil) to celebrate, which is a first for Tony. (Amber & all, Canada became a country in July 1st, 1867 - which makes us 139 years old today )

It's maple and a strawberry cake (Alix & fellow Canadians no doubt know the one I mean where you make the shape of a maple leaf on the top with slices of strawberries) on the menu today. I woke up with the tune "This land is your land" (the Canadian verison by The Travellers) in my head and I'm pleased as punch to have it there!
