HAPPY CANADA DAY - JULY 1, 2011

Canada Day July 1I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy Canada Day on July 1st.  This will be Canada's 144th birthday.  Quite a young country, in the grand scheme of things. 

Vancouver will be celebrating with lots of activities.  There will be concerts all day at Canada Place, from 10am - 7pm.  At 7pm, the Canada Day Parade marches from Georgia Street to Burrard & Hastings, complete with marching bands, floats and multicultural dancers.  The evening will culminate with a fireworks display over the Burrard Inlet.  Here's a link for more information.

If you are closer to Granville Island, you can find live jazz, activities and fun from 8am - midnight. 

What's happening in my neck of the woods, North Vancouver?  Why, a parade, of course!  Starting from 13th and Grand Boulevard at 10am, the parade will proceed along 13th to Lonsdale, then north on Lonsdale to 17th and west to Mahon Park.  The rest of the afternoon you can hang out at the Waterfront Park from 12 noon - 4pm, taking in all the fun activities, including a tug boat ballet - the mind reels... 

Enjoy, and Happy Canada Day!

Kathy - The city is offering a lot of venues in which to celebrate, but I expect the traffic will be horrendous, so I'm planning on staying close to home.  You have a wonderful Canada Day, too!

Kristine - Ha ha!  You know I staged that photo!  You wouldn't believe how hard it was to track down a Canada Day cupcake!  And after the photo shoot, guess what?  I ate it!  Have a fabulous 4th of July!

Tony - Thanks so much - the party's almost started...  Have a great weekend!

Mon cher ami: Bonne fête du Canada! Oh Tish vous avez parlé de 'font'...... j'aime le rouge, beaucoup, et les grands, gras de type visage. Il est facile à lire, et est également très bon goût. .">Je vais avoir cette traduit de l'anglais au français, de sorte que je semble être <G> plus sophistiqués. Aussi, pour ceux qui sont francophiles Vancouranians complète, ils pensent maintenant que vous soyez très sophistiqués (pas comme ils le font pas déjà). Quoi qu'il en soit, profitez des vacances!

Tom - Je suis si heureuse que vous avez aimé le "font" rouge. J'étais un peu inquiete après avoir lu un de vos derniers messages. Je promets de l'utiliser avec moderation. Vous êtes déjà un homme très sophistiqués, même si vous ne parlaient pas français.
Merci beaucoup pour votre bien-souhaite, et j'espère que vous avez une merveilleuse Bastille Day fête de l'Indépendance!

Roger - Oh, that Tom, always spouting off in Spanish(!)  Ha ha ha!  Thanks so much, Roger, and a Happy 4th of July to you! 

Larry - Isn't that bird cover adorable?  I was on Vancouver Island, in Mill Bay, at a little store called "Chabeigh Chic".  Everything is very French-inspired, and I couldn't resist this little accessory.  No doubt it will crop up in one of my stagings down the road...  You have a great Canada Day, too!

Peg - Lloydminster?  Oh, what fun!  So you'll have one foot in Alberta and one foot in Saskatewan?  Sure hope they're the same time zone, or it could get confusing!  I'll wander down to the festivities here in North Vancouver, then I'm off to a friend's Canada Day party tonight.  Hope we can see the fireworks from her house.  Oooooh, Aaaaaaah indeed!  Have a great celebration!

Julie - Thanks!  Alas, I had to send my regrets to the Royal couple.  My social calendar just couldn't quite squeeze them in this year, but I did wish them well during their visit here.  Have a great 4th of July!

Happy Canada Day, Sally. I wish I can read Spanish French but I am sure it sounds as beautiful as your picture. I did see that bird thing in my local store and don't know why I didn't buy it. Have a great weekend!

Linda - I still haven't had a chance to use that little cup cake holder in a stage - I need to find the right house.  Sadly, the cupcake is long gone, but I know where to find more(!)...
