Happy Canada Day to my fellow country men and women!

Today Canada celebrates its 147th birthday and although that’s really old in human years, in comparison to many other countries, Canada is quite young.

She’s a real beauty too; from BC’s breathtaking rain forests and majestic rocky mountains to the rugged landscape and wonder of Newfoundland – Labrador.

But looks aren’t everything, she’s got a great personality too; polite and friendly. And I’ve seen great acts of courage, gentle acts of kindness and every thing in between.

Today I’m reminded how grateful I am to live in Canada – the true north, strong and free.

    People like you make me proud to be Canadian!

    Seriously? Canadians have more sex. Well, go figure. Must be the long dark winters. Oh. And the cold — that’s how we brave it better. 🙂

    Happy Canada Day Diana.
