Awe, this is a nice article.
"We experience Canadian nice as soon as we reach customs. The US border guards are gruff and all business. The Canadians, by contrast, are unfailingly polite, even as they grill us about the number of wine bottles we’re bringing into the country. One year, we had failed to notice that our 9-year-old daughter’s passport had expired. They, nicely, let us enter anyway. The niceness continues for our entire trip, as we encounter nice waiters, nice hotel clerks, nice strangers."

"Canadian niceness is pure, and untainted by the passive-aggressive undertones found in American niceness (have a good day, or else!). It’s also abundant. Canada is to niceness as Saudi Arabia is to oil. It’s awash in the stuff, and it’s about time, I say, the rest of the world imported some. (France, Russia and the UK topped one recent list of rude countries as perceived by travellers.) Researchers have yet to analyse Canadian niceness empirically, but studies have found that Canadians, perhaps in an effort not to offend, use an overabundance of “hedge words”, such as “could be” and “not bad”. Then there is the most coveted of Canadian words:  “sorry”. Canadians will apologize for anything and to anything."

#Canadian #nice  
It’s about time the rest of the world followed suit

I can't stand rudeness.  Adults behaving like children.

We lived in Paris for a while back in the early 80's, and I cannot recall any rudeness from the French.  We toured the country too.  None.

In England, on the other hand, I experienced much rudeness!

It's almost a creepy horror flick watching chocolate Easter bunnies melt.
This is an oldy but doesn't have a lot of views (under 500,000) so I thought I'd share.

If the sky is clear tonight, look up and to the north. Or take a long exposure photo to see if you can catch the glow of the Northern Lights. I hope to catch them from the 43rd parallel tonight.

I love bubbles. There are some new skills here that I've never seen before. I wonder what makes someone decide that they are going to entertain people with bubbles?

Winter isn't over yet. - 7:00 am, March 4, 2015 - Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada

I took these this morning from 2 of the beach entrances. The one with the trees is from up on a hill, there is ice out as far as you can see. Those mounds are ice and sand that were pushed up by the waves when the lake started to freeze, they are the last to disappear from the lake in the spring. We will walk out there when the weather is warmer to listen to the melting and look at the ice. We will be able to walk out there quite far because the lake at this location is shallow for a long way out, but we will get to a point where the ice sheet has obviously cracked and we will stay off that. We also have to be careful of hollow spots, especially under the ice mounds because when it gets warmer and we walk on them, they could collapse. There is no worry of drowning but we could get a twisted ankle or scrapes.

If you like Tom Hank - you HAVE TO watch this seven minute video of all his films.
( I don't remember the song in Big.)

Looks like James Corden's 'Late Late Show' is off to a fine start.

Why didn't they name knots better. Like the shorten-the-rope-shank or the tight-if-you-pull-one-loose-if-you-pull other-hitch or at the very least, the 2 "e's" hitch? Some of these are good though, the Barrel Hitch is and the tripod lashing are pretty obvious.

In the movie Jaws, Quint tested Hooper's knot tying skills by asking him to tie a sheepshank knot.

+Wendy Cohoon thank you for good information~ I also wanna drive on the road near the coast of Nova Scotia. little bit humid? I didn't know that. I though Canada's latitude is higher than Korea so it would be little bit chilling there.

Flashback 1981
Heard this song on the Radio at 5 :30 this morning and I knew it as soon as it started, even in my half awake state. The version I heard was slower and somehow different, I thought it was a cover. (?) It's funny how you can hear a few notes of a song you are sure that you haven't heard in 20 or 30 years and still recognise it. Name That Tune - I can name that song in 2 notes, without the clue!
