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.

A Drive Through the Countryside

Straw Bales
July 21, 2010

A drive through the countryside is always a pleasant diversion.  The farmers a baling straw this time of year which gives ample photo opportunities.  Straw is an important cash crop in our area.  It is used for both animal bedding and feed.  There are various ways that they bale straw with rectangle and round bales being the two main ones.  A freshly mowed field of straw with bales is always delightful to see.
