G'day, eh? And happy Canada Day to all of you who celebrate, which may not be all, as a little poking around on the subject brought me to the Give us back our Dominion Day page, which points out the change of the holiday's name from Dominion Day to Canada day was not technically legal, nor do they seem to feel it has the proper aesthetics, going on to say: "As the national daily the Globe and Mail has said in it's editorials on the subject, 'So was born Canada Day, a name of such happy-face banality that only a bureaucrat could love it'. This would be like the United States choosing to begin celebrating United States Day instead of (Independence) Day on the 4th of July." So whether you are celebrating, protesting, or both, enjoy... and watch out for stray fireworks.
I'm a big Jack Lemmon fan, but I deliberately skipped mentioning his passing the other day because so many celebs have gone in such a short period that it was getting like the obituary of the day around here. Unfortunately, I didn't mention this to loony, so he commented on it the next day. Anyway, I figured I'd point this out, so that the next time someone like Chet Atkins passes away (yes, the legendary guitarist died yesterday-thanks theAntiELVIS), if it wasn't mentioned here, it isn't out of lack of respect, but rather an effort to break a pattern that was getting to the point that any obits we skipped would actually seem like we missed them.
