Oh CANADA!

Recommended Posts

Hello:

I'm sending thoughts and prayers to fellow Canadians in Slave Lake Alberta. Many have lost their homes and belongings. Even the town is destroyed by the recent wildfires. I also send the same concern to flood victims in Manitoba and Quebec. It won't be a very good Victoria Day weekend for you....I share your pain as I am also dealing with a family situation where things are beyond my control...

May we deal with what life has dealt us with patience, faith and by supporting each other.....We are Canadian. We will learn and be stronger...

Juliet xoxo

I know the CBC is the big channel up there. But can you guys get any major US channels like ESPN or ABC or CBS? I would guess maybe with A dish or cable? Do you have the same ongoing war between large companies like Direct TV vs Time Warner there?

Being the result of over 3 years, 6 different studios, countless international concerts and the combined efforts of Ashley

and musical friends such as Quinn Bachand and Mary Jane Lamond, Crossover is Ashley’s first album of this style in ten years!

Hear "She's A Rare One" from Crossover streaming now

Yes, we have cable and dish and depending on which coast you're on will determine your US network affiliates. I live in BC so my ABC etc are out of Seattle, LA and some from Detroit. I also get the east coast feeds for some major networks. I just don't get some cable channels like BET or VH1.

I AM REALLY starting to like the tracks outside of Toronto. Today I won $817 on a $1 bet. Pick four at Woodbine. At night I have been making money at Mohawk. A harness track near Toronto. Great tracks. Good racing.

I read somewhere much of Canada is not that enthused with Vancouver having a great chance to win the Cup and bring it back to Canada? Because it isn't Montreal or Toronto? I guess. I say the Leafs will be in position to win one before the other teams excluding Vancouver. Leafs heading in the right direction. Montreal I believe is in for a long year. Edmonton rebuilding but have a good young group. Calgary are good, but probably don't have the money to get the needed help to go farther? I know what that is like. Oh, and now there is Winnipeg. Where in the devil is that again? Which province? How far from Calgary and Edmonton is it? Is it a bigger city than those others? Any canadiens want to enlighten me?

Ever been there Ally? Babs? Do they have that confounded accent like in Ontario? My cousin's up there always saying "eh". What the fuck is eh? Is it short for "you know?" It is most irritating. I hope they sing the anthem in French tomorrow. Like in Montreal.

Pretty much. The American equivalent seems to be 'huh'.

Why would the city of Winnipeg's hockey team be nicknamed the Jets? The New York Jets I believe were actually named for the gang in West Side Story? But I am not 100 percent sure but pretty sure. Why would they be the Winnipeg Jets? Of course they may be renamed this time. They were just given a new franchise in the NHL in case you did not hear. The Atlanta Thrashers are moving there and the resurrection of hockey in Winnipeg has gone over big. Over 13,000 season tickets sold first day. That is very impressive. So why Jets????

Hats off to our Canadien friends and partners on Canada Day. For all they have sacrificed along side of us fighting these devils in the middle east. Burke is in the middle east today, surprisingly. He must have left strict orders.

What is the deal with some of these Canuck fans turning themselves in? I just got a glimpse of it on a hockey site. At least they turned a couple of cop cars over. Some good came of it. LOL.. Pigs. Oink Oink.
