  1. Happy Birthday to Carrie!
    Hope she had a wonderful one, the cake looks delicious!

    I know what you mean about those nasty storms, and trying to be safe in one without basements here is scary.

    I have an old motorcycle helmet i think i might put on just in case *giggles* hey i’m serious.

    I LOVE the photo of the crepe myrtle! just gorgeous, mine haven’t blossomed out yet, but the ones in town have. i guess mine are late bloomers.

    Hope you have a wonderful evening ♥

  2. Ciao Liz, what a yummy cake! 😀 Happy Birthday to Carrie! Buon Compleanno! 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful day, yesterday!
    Thanks for your visit, Liz. We had a TV before, but not since we moved here. And I admit I don’t miss it as much as I thought. And yes, I read a lot more now 🙂 and I have more time to enjoy my day.
    What about you, are you planning to visit Ireland or Italy some day? 🙂
    Hugs & blessings your way! Ciao!

  3. Hi Liz, Happy 35th Carrie, a great age to be.

    Because you asked here is a history lesson for you.

    When I was young, the holiday was called ‘La Fete St. Jean’ and was a celebration of French Canadian culture. That was it, period.

    As the years went by and the sovereignty movement gained momentum, the celebration turned into a sovereignist celebration as well. There isn’t an Anglo-Quebecker older than 40 who doesn’t remember the sickening television images of drunken revellers desecrating and burning Canadian flags, amid shouts of ‘Vive le Quebec libre’

    The idea of anglophones participating in this celebration was nonsense.

    In the late 70’s Rene Levesque, the province’s first sovereignist Premier, officially changed the name of the holiday to ‘Fête nationale du Québec’ . The new vision was that the holiday would become a celebration of the Quebec nation, inclusive of it’s minorities. Having a national ‘day’ was seen as a first step towards sovereignty.

    This year there was some controversy because the organizers of the Fête did not want two anglo bands to perform in English, the decision was overturned and they did perform, some things change but stay the same.

    Have a nice Thursday
