    And now, here's a song that makes for a great change to our national anthem: Canada's Really Big, by the Arrogant Worms.


    "When I look around me, I can't believe what I see
    It seems as if this country has lost its will to live:
    The economy is lousy, we barely have an army,
    But one thing we can say is Canada's really big!

    We're the second largest country on this planet Earth
    And if Russia keeps on shriking then soon we'll be first
    (As long as we keep Quebec)

    The USA has tanks and Switzerland has banks
    They can keep them, thanks, cuz they just don't amount
    Cuz when you get down to it you find out what the truth is,
    It isn't what you do with it, it's the size that counts!

    Some people will tell you that France is pretty large
    But you can fit fourteen Frances into this land of ours
    (It would take a lot of work! It would take a whole lot of work!)

    Our mountains are kinda pointy, our Prairies are not
    The rest is kinda bumpy, but man, do we have a lot!
    (We got a lotta land, we gotta whole lotta land!)

    So stand up and be proud,
    And sing out very loud
    We stand above the crowd
    Because Canada's really BIG!

    Have a good one, Canada! We love you!!!

    [face_laugh] I love that song, Derisa! [face_dancing]

    I actually worked all Canada Day, but we got to watch the fireworks from the parking lot.

    We had a really nice picnic in the park, sitting under the shade of a broad oak while we watched a memorial softball game, and the kids blew soap bubbles and played in the sand in the playground.

    Then came home and had BBQ steaks and corn on the cob for dinner. We had red and white decorated cake, red and white candies in dishes, dried red cranberries and white yoghurt-dipped raisins (anyone spotting a theme yet?) :p

    It was a good day. :)
