todays theme was definitely mortality. I visited my 98 year old grand mother as well as my mom's grave. (My cousin Deanna is buried there too and I visited both)

The more I think about things like that the more I realise every day should be special. ie. what did I do today?

My mom lived to be fifty one, my cousin thirty and my Grandma is still rockin at 98. who knows eh?

there I was with my 2 year old son who had no idea about any of this (to my knowlege anyways!)

one lesson learned today; don't visit graveyards in bad weather (today was cold and windy) as it is extra sad and depressing. I am still really glad I went.

I am hanging onto this greatest canadian thing tonight. Only, to tell you how much I am glad to pull out a copy of Gordon Lightfoots 1973 Sundown album. Great songs, so nostalgic too as it reminds me of my parents big box stereo hifi.

I heard some weird synth stuff on one tune and thought it sounded like Eugenen Martynec...nah...cant be. Yup!! He is everywhere that guy.

someone should do an article on him. the guy had a special award given to him one year at the Junos. He is best known as producer for many of Cockburns classic records but he also played in Kensington Market and now is a part of the toronto improvisers scene. (Produced Rob Clutton and Geordie Haley's latest)

I am due for a top five listening list. I will wait for another occasion but I have a funny feeling that Gordon will be on there.

(i really need to get the railroad trilogy!!)

As you know, I dont like tv much these days with the hockey strike going on.

tonight was a definite exception, on the CBC. The Greatest Canadian was a good show. Entertaining, funny, emotional (I can't watch Terry Fox footage without crying) and controversial. (yes, I was glad to see Don Cherry make the top ten!)

You can find out more here

I could never be a great canadian because I like to brag too much! haha ie., I predicted (with my brother's help) 7 of the top ten picked by our general public.

The ones I missed were, Lester B Pearson, David Suzuki and tommy Douglas.

Of course, the idea of picking one person is quite ridiculous but I am in it for all the celebrating of Great Canadians.

For example, I always wondered why there was a school in Burlington called Tecumseh...

I think someday I would like to take a train ride with Julie and the kids to the West Coast. I wonder what age that would work best at. rush.

I feel a little chill in my bones (could be that we haven't turned on the furnace yet) I hope I am not coming down with something.

Maybe it is just my body reacting to working out today after a week without exercise?

btw, I might vote for Wayne.
