Happy Canada Day

It's July 1st.  Canada's birthday.  Fire up the grill and crack open a cold one.

Speaking of which, nothing defines some of us Canadians better than our love of beer.  It ranks right up there with, um, ah, our love of hockey.  Sit back, relax, and take a look at the true meaning of I Am Canadian...

00dozo: While they had great commercials I hate Molson beer. I always thought it tasted skunky. I'll be celebrating with a Corona or two.

I just cracked open a diet dr. pepper and now I salute you as my favorite Canadian!

Happy Canada Day!

Quirks: Did you know Dr. Pepper was originally called a Waco, because of where it was invented? Just sayin'.
Dr. Pepper's not Canadian...what the heck?!? Sorry, I was going off on Quirkster's comment.

As for your post, happy birthday, Canada. I'll have to pick up some Molson later.

UR: Thanks my friend. Did you know Molson is owned by Coors? Labatt's is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev? Sleeman's is owned by Sapporro? The only "major" independent Canadian brewery is Moosehead. And I'm not gonna be drinking something called that! Oh, and have a happy 4th!
Happy Canuck Day, NoName. Have I mentioned that I love Canada? I really do, you know. I want to live in Vancouver, specifically near Granville Island. It's my dream. That and spending a night with Evangeline Lilly and case of Molson -- assuming my wife was dead, of course, because I wouldn't even think of it otherwise.

Nothing like a little Canadian for the holidays! I'm headed up to the Thousand Islands next week... I'll look toward the northern shore and lift a Molson in your honor, Dufus!

Mike: Been to Vancouver many times - a great city. Granville Island is cool. The Cannery restaurant there is great. Thanks for the Canada Day wishes. Happy Independence Day weekend to you, guy.

Boom-Boom: Here, here. What a beautiful spot - the Thousand Islands. Better you drink a Molson than I - blechh! But it's the thought that counts. Happy 4th.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
