July 1st is fast approaching.....

.....so, what's on the agenda besides nachos and Molson? :confused:

Ha! Nachos... what Canadian likes those? :D

We're taking our kids to see my parents, then I think we're going down to a public park for some general festivities - live music, maybe some fireworks if they can stay up late enough.

Down in Windsor, Ontario (which borders on Detroit) they have a joint celebration called the Festival of Light - it's a MASSIVE fireworks display that draws people from hundreds of miles around. Try getting a hotel room in either city this weekend!!!

This Canada Day (July 1st) will be our 140th national birthday. Of interest, it is also the anniversary date of the RCMP - our first Prime Minister, John A. MacDonald, instated the Northwest Mounted Police on July 1st 1874. Knowing IS half the battle.....

Ahhh Canada Day....

On slate for the mabudonicus household, we're hosting a meeting (10 am to 2 pm) of the Ontario (Canadian, really, we have members from almost every province but only the local, largest contingent is comin out) Carnivorous Plants Society. Should be a good time, lots of folks talkin plants, trading plants and generally goofing off

Today, the lead-in to Canada Day- should be having an assembly of some of our "classic" buddies today- we got started yesterday and got a tad overenthusiatic so Ange/Elf is right now trying to put the pieces of her mind back together as we ended up partying with a couple of good friends who had nothing but hard liquor to drink last night.

There should be fireworks at the "Friendship Festival" which happens in the Fort Erie/Buffalo crossing area bewteen here and the US, and a bit more locally a nice display at Port Dalhousie- the original Lake Ontario end of the Welland Canal, which in the mid 1800's joined Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The current Canal is the fourth incarnation and terminate a couple of mile east of the original. The original also had some 38 locks, whereas the "modern" one only has 8, with locks 1 through 6 being in St.Catharines.

I have no clue what today will bring, but I'm pretty confident that it will turn out to be classic Canadian fun. Canada Day generally brings out the best in many folks tho, so I imagine with the beauty weather this one will be awesome :beard: Iso & Baws

It is impossible for a real Canadian to get "sh*tfaced* off Bud light. In fact, I think there is a law somewhere that if a Canadian sees a fellow Canadian drinking a bud light - and getting wasted, we are to kick him in the nads, and revoke his citizen forthwith.

We're going to a friends place to, well, drink beer, eat steaks, drink more beer, and camp over night...tomorro.w

Today is my and my wife's 5th Anniversary - we're ditching the kids this afternoon and will return tomorrow...What we are doing, and were we are going - no one else will know....

lol, way too funny pegger, I'm still laughing at this ten minutes after reading it. Congrats on the Anniversary bro.

I think the Irish have a similar system, but it's based more on walking and the distance to the next pub.

And parts of Montana are also were like that. The real rural areas and places like Butte and Miles City are notorious for such actives. Until recently Montana had some of the worst laws (or lack of laws) on drinking and driving in the US.

I myself despise Bud Light. I think it is absolutely tasteless and always seems flat. I will drink Miller Lite on occasion, but only because that's the only type of beer Mrs. Solo can tolerate. I'm a true Molson Canadian fan through and through. I'm a huge fan of Hobgoblin, but that stuff's imported from Jargo's neck of the woods and can be pricey (~$12 USD/6pack). Luckily, living in Michigan affords me the luxury of two of the best microbreweries in the nation: Bells and The Michigan Beer Company, which both turn out top shelf suds at reasonable prices (~$8-$9 USD/6pack).

Just got back from the fireworks, we had a very nice (if very family oriented) Canada Day this year. Traveled to London to visit my folks - including my younger brother who came up from Minnesota (with some SW stuff for ol' JJ!) with his girlfriend - then came back after supper and a little baseball watching (sadly no Tigers, but we saw the Jays lose in the last of the 9th to Seattle). By the time we got home, it was straight down to the park for the fireworks - a fairly short show. Now we're back, and the kids are wiped. To finish it off, I'm planning on watching the first episode of John from Cincinatti, to see if I want to get involved in it or not.

EDITED: Canada Day is also another big day on the NHL schedule as free-agent signings can begin in earnest. Too many big name players signed with new teams today - I can only suggest checking out a sports site to get the latest (the Wings lost Mathieu Schneider to the Ducks, but signed Brian Rafalski from the Devils for the next 5 years - so we come out ahead in my books).

They all drive down here.

As I was going into Target today, I heard a woman talking on her cell phone saying, "You don't know how much you owe me for going to Costco on a Canadian and American holiday." She kept repeating how much this person owed her. I went to Costco after that, but only bought some juice and was lucky enough to get through a newly opened line.

Yeah, we did pretty much the same thing jjreason, nice & family oriented. We went to the wife's father's place in Sussex, had a BBQ, didn't get any toys but I came close to picking one up for Brandon's birthday. He was with me so it would have ruined it for him. We played basketball at the courts later on & took the kids to the park, afterwards we watched the fireworks. I have to say they were ten time's better than S.J.'s, Sussex folks know how to spread them out & not drop their wad in one shot sort a speak. Finally we got some more junk food & drove home, & arrived at midnight so we all went to bed. (Good times):thumbsup::D:yes:

Oyes, I am getting things lined up today- I'm on hiatus from business (mostly due to the 4th of july making things idle on thurdsay and friday) and all's I have to accomplish today is securing our stores and uploading some pics, so Canada Day is going to go smoothly- after my failure at the cave last year I have something to make up for- although I managed to get hammered anyways thanks to a large bottle of whiskey that made a fine bargaining tool in my quest for beers...

I will take pics, and maybe some video to share- I snagged some weird Lanny audio the other night but it's a tad to hard to make out

Oyes Canada Day is usually some kind of fun- too bad the guy I usually party with is in jail indefinitely :(

Just for sh*ts and giggles, I looked him up on wikipedia and found quite the contrary to be true:

"...argued against the legalisation of homosexuality in the United Kingdom, arguing that the Sexual Offences Act 1967 was a "charter for buggery" and that "this sort of thing may be tolerated by the French, but we're British thank God." It is claimed - probably mythically - that he said while addressing the House of Lords "As God said - and I do think very rightly . . ."The bolding is mine, since that line is absolutely hilarious.

07-02-2008, 12:52 PM
Went off without a hitch!!
We strode uptown for a couple hours in the PM, went to a relatively classy brewpub and had some good pints and food. ALMOST got the opportunity to beat the stuffings out of some stupid Lanny who was being VERY obnoxious, he was trying to drunkenly talk to us and I tired of him right away and told him so. He decided to get pushy and at the same time falsely apologetic, and made the SERIOUS mistake of actually putting his hand on my shoulder. One of the bartenders (both of whom were instantly aware that this guy was looking for trouble and had been watching nervously) saw this out of the corner of his eye and shot in worried glance at that juncture, but I just tensed up and said "do NOT touch me- 2 rules, no touching me, NO bugging me"

He started muttering threats and I just kepy lookin away from him at Elf (who was also basically sitting there waiting for the guy to TRULY ask for it)

I was thinking it was prety much gonna end real badly for the guy when he slams his empty glass down and demands "another" Molson Canadian (which is funny since they only serve their own house-made beer and local microbrews) when the dude bartender suggested he leave. The guy argued his drunken case for a sec then decided to give us one more shot of surly by asking "what's the best way out of this F-ing town". The Bartender suggested a bus, but the guy replied "I don't need no F-ing bus"

He left without incident, which was too bad but at least no-body got in any legal trouble, tho since the place is owned by my friend and everyone who was witness knew the guy was barking up the wrong tree, I think I probably wouldn't have had any worries if we took the idiot outside.

Oh Jargo, there was no vomitus or extreme overindulgence-we DID drink plenty of beer, but at the correct pace so as to wind out the evening drinking water and hanging out on the porch listening to the fireworks going off all over the place- there was this one display that sounded like hell on earth, me and my buddy literaly just looked at each other with expressions of delighted disbelief for much of the last bit of the display.

Thanks for the good wishes tho, everyone :D

A pretty quiet day up here in Canada, at least where we're at- I would think people would be surprised to know that we walked around downtown for roughly a whole hour on a fruitless quest to find a bar that was both open and not the worst dive in town. We gave up and went back to said dive (Mikado for those who know) and had a consolation beer then headed back here for some wholesales, waiting to see who might drop by to hang with us in the later PM

...once again, no comments from our neighbors to our north on this thread...

At least my Canadian heritage is in tact....I'LL carry the day!!! (My great-grandfather was from Montreal!)

I think my family has eaten enough Canadian bacon that their arteries are caked with Canadian-ness, or the couples who honeymooned at Niagara Falls; that's all the heritage I have. Eh.

I'd have celebrated it more, if USA weren't playing soccer today; maybe I would have eaten a Belgian waffle with maple syrup, eh?
