Happy Birthday, Canada! And for all Canadians, Happy Canada Day.
I love this country, and I love many of the people in this country. I love the many things this country has allowed me to do, and the many memories this country has played a huge part in providing. Oh yes, our country is terribly flawed, and I could spend hours recounting those problems. I'd rather save that kind of bashing for another day, and instead celebrate being Canadian with my lovely Canadian family. With a family that consists of a dog whose breed originates from Switzerland, a wife with a Chinese background, and a mixed son, I'd say we're pretty much the epitome of a Canadian family -- especially since we've all been born in Canada, too.
I hope all my Canadian readers have a wonderful day of celebration with your loved ones. And for all my non-Canadian readers, I hope you have a fabulous Sunday. As for my American readers, you've got your party coming real soon.
In honour of Canada Day, I thought I'd show a classic clip from the 80s sketch comedy, Kids in the Hall. It is like Saturday Night Live, except it is funny. I know, I know, SNL was funny back then too. This clip about an office submarine is the perfect way to kick off the Canada Day celebrations.
