Poor Canadians... homage to the homeland today...

Ben didn't die on Felicity, my patronage is saved.

I had pork chops for dinner last night.

I am listening to my new Lamb CD- which is actually their older CD. I love it!

There is a bag of ketchup chips on my desk waiting for lunch.

It is Thursday, the week is almost over.

Melissa, I hope you are doing okay. I love you.

Katie, you need to call me.

Good luck everyone with their finals.

Dave is cute.

Canadianism for the day is dedicated to those Canadian soldiers killed and wounded yesterday.

November 11, known as Veterans' Day in the US, is called Remembrance Day in Canada. In 1915, Lt. Col. John McCrae wrote a beautiful and moving poem called "In Flanders Fields":

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.
