FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!

Today is the  Summer Solstice, when the sun is at its highest point.
It is also the longest day of the year!
We wait, all year, for summer to appear.
HAPPY JUNE 21st, 2011!


In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way
I have to go to bed by day.

COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WEATHER!

We spend too much precious time, complaining about the weather.  We have had a lot of rain here, lately.  I have got to remind myself, that very soon, I will be complaining that it is too hot, and that I have to spend too much time watering the plants, and worrying about water restrictions!

"and when it rains on your parade, look up, rather than down."
"Without rain, there would be no rainbow."

STANLEY CUP FINALS/VANCOUVER

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg2G5gf9GHk

As I live in British Columbia, hockey fever has taken over.  It is the first time the Vancouver Canucks have ever been in finals Stanley Cup.
There does not seem to be any other topic of conversation.
You would think it was a national holiday, with cars going around sporting Vancouver team flags!
