Ever since I can remember I've heard the comment that there is "no difference" between Canadians and Americans. I respectfully beg to differ as there is a difference on so many levels! We have unique Canadian culture consisting of Canadianisms, a Canadian perspective on world events, Canadian cuisine as well as products and foods only available in Canada. This blog is dedicated to celebrating all things Canadian from "my perspective" as a Canadian. Please enjoy your visit and be sure to visit often.

Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.

Oh Canada

  1. Just beautiful, beautiful!!! I have not ever had the opportunity to visit any part of your great country, but have a huge desire to and perhaps since one of my sons may be stationed at Ft. Drum, NY later next year I'll get the chance. I very much respect your love for your land. I love the U.S. although I must admit there are many aspects of it, espeially in the last decade or so,that I am not very proud of. Although I currently live in Utah, I consider Wyoming my home and always will. Most only know of the larger than life areas of Wyoming, Yellowstone, the Tetons, Devil's Tower, etc., but there are many hidden treasures to Wyoming that I enter my thoughts evey day.
    I look forward to your posts on this new blog and will bookmark it in my favorites with your other blogs, which I read faithfully(when I too find the time.) Good luck with your new endeavor. God Bless Canada! God Bless the U.S.! And God Bless you and yours!
