O Canada

I feel it's appropriate to give a shout to our neighbors to the north, Canada, on this, their special day. We can forgive them for Celine Dion, because they also gave us Peter Jennings and Barenaked Ladies.

I've had a Canadian flag on my desk since college, for something like 15 years. Canada is not perfect, but it seems like a far more rational place than the United States. I haven't crossed the border in years, but I've always felt very welcome there. I had my first legal beer there, worshiped radio there and had many good times.

I could ramble on about why I love Canada, but this post from a knitting blogger than Diana reads really sums it up.

And yet another reason to make it over to Canada's Wonderland!! I thought Ontario was very cool, and I loved how they actually cared about conservation and it was a part of everything they do...when the napkins at Pizza Pizza publicize their restaurant chain saves 45,000 trees per year by using recycled cardboard for their pizza boxes, you know they really care!!

If it just wasn't for their winters!!...
