Happy Canada Day
The original name for Canada, dreamed up by a parliamentary committee in London, was "Cold North Dominion," but that waas too long, so they abbreviated it C.N.D. The King's Royal Governor presented the new name to the inhabitants, and they didn't say a word. Just looked at him.
"Well, what do you think?" asked the Royal Governor?
"C., eh?" said the first fellow, and just looked at the Governor.
"N., eh?" says the second guy.
"D., eh?" says a third one. Then silence.
"Hey," says the Governor. "I like that. It's a helluva lot easier to pronounce when you spell it that way."
So that's how Canada got its name.
Happy July 4th
A story was told many years ago about a young Hispanic man who was new to the United States of America.
Feeling a little out of place, but desperately wanting to fit in and learn about the culture of America in general, and the outrageously popular sport of baseball in particular, Jose (pronounced ho-zay) decided to attend a local baseball sporting event. This particular ball game was played on the 4th of July.
He was a bit surprised before the game started to see the massive crowd stand to its feet and begin to sing.
As Jose was not a man of large stature, he became a bit dismayed, wondering if he would be able to see the ball game with large numbers of tall Americanos standing all around him.
As soon as they faced the flag and raised their voices in song, however, Jose was put at ease. How welcoming they all were! Their concern for him touched his heart deeply.
The very first thing that gigantic mass of people sang to him was: "Jose, can you see?"
"For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?"
"Keep Canada beautiful. Swallow your beer cans."
