“I know all of you are out hiking, but I just wanted to wish all the Canadians a Happy Canada Day.
...the True North Strong and Free.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.”
And you Yanks are gonna have your birthday in 2 more days (it's now exactly midnight here).”
What Geezr Sang!
“I spent a year in Canada and learned "O Canada" p!ssed my mother to no end. She said " You're not Canadian!" I just thought I was giving respect to the nation that welcomed me!
"O, Canada .... " Have a GREAT celebration!”
“Oh Canada, have a happy, eh? You are great neighbors, true friends, and wonderful people! I just wish I knew how you got the better national anthem!”
“I have never been to Canada when I didn't enjoy it immensely. I could see myself living up there and getting that free health care.”
“Thanks and a happy fourth to you guys as well.”
“Thanks for the b'day greetings! Nice job on the anthem, Geezr. Personally, I kind of like just about everyone elses, better than ours.
Hey Dundan - I think 'tax freedom day' is next week..... then I'll be finished paying for that 'free' health care.. He He”
“Canadians rock!!!!! America couldn't ask for a better neighbor!”
“Back to the top, the party's not over yet!”
Just a thought:
Just a thought:
“Oh yeah. Happy Birthday, eh?”
hey, when Canada's involved, is the party ever REALLY over?
happy birthday, though. ;-)”
“Violin, we deserve a bigger star (5 stars put together)...since we're the biggest country in the world (after Russia broke up).”
“I think the graphic is showing one star for each province but if bigger ones will seal the deal...
where do I sign?
We'll even lose the eagle - I'm a little partial to beavers over birds anywho.”
“Maybe it could be the maple leaf filled with stars.”
“How about maple leaf shaped stars?”
“I think a red Maple Leaf set on white, in the lower right corner of the stripes, would do nicely.
Otherwise, you'd need 13 more stars, for 10 provinces and 3 territories”
“Here ya go...
“Okay... What did I do wrong
“I must be html challenged today
“Thanks Violin... I just need a few more tries than most people... Ha Ha Ha”
“Looks good to me, boys.”
“Do ya think Mexico might get pissed off?”
“Add a Mapel Leaf or as many stars as needed!
I would be proud to call you brothers(as we already do)ANY TIME.
I can't think of any better to watch our back.”
“Well, I think the British are a bit better at watching our back, but the Canadians are the slightly eccentric uncle who you love having over for the holidays.”
“Hey Violin, did you find that graphic somewhere, or did you make it yourself (with flash?) That sounds like a great idea to me. Happy day, my Canadian friends. I really want to make it up to the Great White North some day.
"Somebody horked our clothes!
Jeez, who'd wanna hork our clothes?"
"Take off, eh!"
Strange Brew is one of my all time favorite movies. I have one question though...do they drive on the left or right side of the road in Canada. In the movie, they drive on the right, so I was just wondering if that was accurate. Later, eh?”
“We drive like you guys....same side of the road...only less maniacal.”
“You're probably right about that. I live in Texas...and in a state that is 1000 or so miles wide (or 1800 kilometers, if you prefer) each way, we like to drive fast. Thanks for the info, tho.”
“That would be 1600 kms....it's close enough. Does everybody drive SUV's or pickups there?”
dumb question alert
“hey, is kilometers the metric system? who uses the metric system? or should i say, who doesn't? i know the US doesn't...i was trying to figure out who else.”
“One happy accident of this holiday period: Toronto's garbage haulers are on strike. Since all of Toronto's garbage gets trucked 6 hours to south of Detroit, that means we have quiet streets for a change. And the bald eagles that nest next to the Canadian garbage mound can have a bit of peace.
Toronto blows dog!”
“Ya Lyra ... It's metric. I think its just the US and some of the British Empire that are still using the imperial system. But, most of them are switching”
“kewl. just wondering!”
“It's that time once again !!
Happy Birthday Canada !!”
“Canada is a lovely place!
My middle boy is hosteling and camping in Quebec right now!”
“I've had "O, Canada" in my head all morning!
Go Expos! Go Jays!”
“Happy Birthday to all Canadians.”
“Are we gonna party in Whistler in 2010 ....?????
Olympic Decision on Wednesday”
“Happy Canada day... great article in the post today about how Canada is a great place to be ;o)”
“blame canada! blame canada!”
“I thought this thread was titled "Happy Birth Canal".
“Get off the meds!!!”
“Looks like 2010 Winter Olys are in Vancouver.”
“Hodgeman - Remember you are addressing a board that is overwhelmingly American. Many of us have no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps a graphic aid would be in order.
