Happy Canada Day!

This land is your land,
This land is my land,
From Bonavista
To Vancouver Island,
From the Arctic Circle,
To the Great Lake waters,
This land was made for you and me.
The Travellers' Canadian lyrics
to Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land

Due to work commitments, my first Canada Day celebrations in the homeland in 15 years were pretty low key, wearing my red t-shirt with Canada emblazoned proudly across the chest, watching homeland television, a.k.a. CBC, to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge escorted in their Landau by a hundred regal red Mounties mounted tall on black steeds, the Snowbirds soar overhead, and new Canadian music, much of which I didn't understand. It's good to be back.
