On one side of us, the neighbors erected an Inukshuk in their front yard! The family on the other side mowed out a mini putt course in the field behind our houses and put flags in all the holes! Creative bunch and awfully patriotic, don't you think?

Sir John A. looks like such a junior compared to the other men. Anyway, Happy Canada Day! We've been moving into our new place but don't have to be out of the house we're sitting until the 6th so it's a nice easy day. Going to see Outlaw Social at the harbour mainstage tonight, then fireworks. Our first C-Day in Victoria. The weather is gorgeous.

Happy Canada Day everyone!

I walked downtown. There was so much noise! But it turned out to be all about Portugal's soccer win. It was really Portugal day in downtown Kitchener.

There was also the firefighters' challenge being taped. They were wearing far too much clothing. It was hot! I felt sorry for them.

There wasn't much fuss about Canada.

Yes, a Canada Day weekend. I spent it working, too. And lazing in the sun and shades of various porches, drinking Cdn beer. It was a great day.

How i got my boyfriend back.Am Stacey Bruno by name I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the Dr ATILA only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is: atilahealinghome@yahoo.com
