True Patriot Love

A university buddy of mine lives 4000 km away, but he keeps me up to date on all things cultural (that can be shared with a link).  I thought my international readers might get a kick out of these Canadian musicians and their ingenuity. Homegrown readers and Canadian ex-pats likely won't be at all surprised. We are always looking for ways to maximize recycling of beer bottles and cans.  We're green like that (and we drink a lot of brewskies).


I love our National Anthem and dearly hope we get to hear it many times from the podiums of London. B and I will cry, of course.

THAT is awesome. Pretty much sums it up, eh? Too bad the beer labeled "Canadian" isn't one I enjoy...

And I mist up just about every time I hear the anthem. Gets a little embarrassing at the hockey game. Ha!

I have to admit -- that was pretty sweet....

I cry when I hear (or have to sing) our national anthem too. A soft spot for our nation!

Absolutely AWESOME! This is just too funny and being a true Canadian... I can honestly say - Any beer is a good beer as long as it isn't that light stuff! haha.

This is truly ingenious and makes me wish I was Canadian. Especially when I saw how big some of those beer bottle were. What are they - 2 litres? Awesome! That would just get me through breakfast.

oh that's just totally awesome, I love it, particularly when the hair-dryer and the bottle caps get in on the action! Can't believe there isn't an Australian version for our anthem, which I hope will be played a LOT over these next couple of weeks ;-) Cat
