Honouring the Warriors o' WWI in song - this is a grand project - and is seeking some additional funding through Kickstarter http://kck.st/1MZQnbZ.
Civilized Productions is producing an album of songs based on poems written by Soldiers serving on The Western Front during the years 1914 to 1918. These are unique stories, lest we forget, of sorrow – and of hope – and each will be composed and sung by The Toronto Valour Ensemble (Ontario Canada). #Veterans #Remembrance

How to Re-Discover Your Neighborhood with Local Google Maps http://ow.ly/30rrZn
Online maps are becoming more and more personalized. Long gone are the days when, if you wanted to get to know an area, you had to buy a paper map, and then stand like an idiot trying to get the flapping paper under control. Now it's just a case of whipping out the smartphone and…

The odd, unusual & unique...treasures o' many kinds!
A young Lady in the UK just received her treasures today - after a very long & patient wait (we believe the postal service has resorted to rowboats crossing the Atlantic) - and is quite pleased: "I have just received the book and deck! They look amazing and powerful!! I cannot believe it's a very classic set of book and deck which was published about 30 years old, and you kept them in perfect condition!!! Thank you so much for passing the treasure to me, I will try my best to keep them as perfect as you did!!!! :) when I have touched the deck, I can understand why you did not suggest to laminate them, you are so right, the heating process of laminating will only damage the precious deck and probably the energy of the deck. Thank you a million again, I am very grateful for your great kindness, generosity and help!!"

"Happy Canada Day - 140 years young" - a reminder this is merely the "Birth of a Nation" as defined by the Confederation (1867...some o' ye may remember Expo '67 -held, appropriately, in Montréal - in celebration o' the Centennial year).
We should remember those first intrepid explorers (my Ancestors) who met the First Peoples (my Ancestors) and learned the word "Canada" (meaning "settlement" or "village"). It is often noted as "Kanata", the Mohawk word for it, though it would seem to have been first heard further east, from the Laurentian peoples who met Jacques Cartier about 1535 near the villages of Hochelaga (now Montréal) and Stadacona (now Québec City).

I'll have to look for it later, she's very intrepid!  I love those shows, even the one with the worst cooks in America.   but the ones with chefs have a better chance of creating good food.   sp
