appy Canada Day


Well, look at this, Google put a Canadian Flag on their Canadian site this year. Last year Google didn’t mark Canada Day and claimed that they could not mark all occasions.

It must be our new positioning as leaders of the free world due to Harper’s successful G20 summit. I mean he is responsible for all of it, right.

There is a rally in Toronto tonight, calling for a Pubic Inquiry into the Actions at the G20, being held at 5:30 today at Queens Park. Certainly a worthwhile endeavor but for me the city needs a rest from unrest, at least for the day. 

In fact the City needs its spirits lifted and its pride back and fortunately for all us in the GTA, it is Pride Week and that’s the next rally I will get behind, no tongue in cheek intended. If what you witnessed or felt last weekend didn’t seem like Toronto, then this weekend Toronto is coming back. The Pride parade is on Sunday, July 4th.

Meanwhile for me, I’m going to see all of my grandkids today, in one spot, for the first time.

Appy Canada Day!

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
