Yup, it's our national birthday, 155 years young - and a lot of stuff has gone down in those years. Good dark and early morning from warm Kingston, Ontario, Canada's first capital (then they got smart and built Ottawa). It's 22C and will only go down to 20C before rising to 27C with a 60% chance of showers (and thunderstorms). Yesterday was a time for on-road training of our Cycling Ambassadors - they did great! Last night was the Fiddler's Dream open mic from Phoenix, Arizona, via Zoom, and a fine night it was. Photo: Canada Day festivities, 2016, in Sunbury, north of Kingston - on stage, here playing backup. (The bass player has a Canadian flag on his peghead.)

Have a great day! (Happy birthday, Canada!)

Good morning from Sweden.

Just now a light summer rain is falling down.

Yeah! Happy Canada Day! Big doings in the village park with food, music games and animal rides.
My house keeper's birthday, too. I'm so grateful for her ability to clean up after me.

Happy Birthday Canada!

I hope the positions of the flags isn’t offensive. It’s actually against the United States Flag Code to fly another flag above the US flag on US soil. The only exceptions are a church pendant during religious services in the UN Navy and at the United Nations where the UN Flag flies about all other national flags.

Good Day everyone! Here's a pic from our uptown core with the U.S. Olympic Mountains in the distance.

We are having an extra long weekend to celebrate Terry's birthday on the 4th of July.

Chuck: There are cool things about shooting over water.
On calm evenings, the reflections add a lot.
The burst shell fragments fall in the water so there's less clean-up.

I was licensed for commercial fireworks, around western Canada as a wiring specialist.
Everything from "light it and run," to fully digital, synch to music over a local radio station.

We used to see the annual international fireworks competition on the Toronto waterfront back in the Nineties. Hundreds of thousands of people lined the waterfront from downtown all the way through Etobicoke. There were evenings for the various nations entered, and people brought portable radios to pick up the music that was synched to the fireworks. It eventually stopped due to the end of tobacco companies' sponsorship.

The fireworks were launched from barges on Lake Ontario. The curve of Toronto's shoreline enabled people to see it from shores close to their neighbourhoods.

I take it that your message is intended for those of us descended from immigrants from the Irish Potato Famine.laugh
