I've lived from one end of this country to the other & many places in between. I got only 60%.

It shows how I'm out of touch with the 'BrainFall Staff' - who ever they are. They must be from a different generation from mine...

Whoa! Two quite important Axiomoe events and I missed 'em. Sorry!

Dear Canada: Thank you for your good-natured responses (or none at all) to my 49th paralell jabs over the years.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CANADA! ROCK ON! (I'll ignore the Rush thing for the rest of the month, but just for you guys.) And admit it! You ARE us, only you're better at a lot of stuff and have way fewer crazy people per sq. mile. "Why" doesn't matter.

AND, AND, ADRIAN!

Major Congratulations on your recent marriage! It's aboot time! And to think of all the people who thought you were gay! Jeesh! At least now THAT can get put to rest.

Seriously, I wish you both many decades of joy together! HAPPY "0" Anniversary!

The announcement was immediately published on the internet :



For the record, I NEVER proclaimed any such thing!

So much for location, didn't help much, just across the river, only scored 70%, imagine my Canadian friends are so embarrassed!
Temporary thread hi-jack,
Detroit the 313, celebrating it's 313th birthday.
Established in July, 1701 by the less than esteemed one Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac (not his real name, changed it due to some questionable youthful behavior).
Sounds like a real Detroiter.
OK, back to the regularly scheduled programming.

PEI is celebrating "2014" or 150 years since the "Charlottetown Conference" where all of Canada's 'Founding Fathers of Confederation', got together, drank a lot of booze and supposedly discussed how to create Canada in between the whiskey shots and fights over who had the tallest top hat.

I don't know how much effect this really had historically but the Province and the Feds have kicked in millions of dollars for the celebration including a ton of great, free concerts all summer.

I think the 26 million could have been spend in a lot better places but since I have no say in it, I'm enjoying as many of the free concerts as I can. Well, kinda free.... tax money and all...
