It is the Victoria Day weekend this weekend (unless you live in Quebec, La Fete Des Patriotes), and in Ottawa this is the first weekend you should be planting things (if you did it any earlier you most likely aren’t too happy about the frosts we had the past two weeks).
I have decided I want to be Floyd Mayweather’s new barber as he has haircuts 3 times a week, and he pays $1000 each time (oh and he is bald, it seems too).
