Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Hopefully you are enjoying this long weekend, and are enjoying the Feast of the Harvest.

For those wonder about how we celebrate it in the Big Caj family, this picture sums it up nicely:

New Age Thanksgiving

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it! This is how my son described Thanksgiving to his sister, and she drew it for him, you can’t tell me the mind of a child in the Autism Spectrum isn’t wonderfully different.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Canada Day

Canada Day is here, and we are all off celebrating a ludicrously long weekend, and celebrating Canada’s birthday !

Canadian Flag
Happy Canada Day

Enjoy the day, be astounded by this great nation that we live in, and its majesty and beauty.

For your enjoyment, a short from the NFB that sums up Canada Nicely:

Happy Victoria Day

Yes it is a holiday finally, and I get to enjoy the first long weekend since Easter (which seems a long way away). No stores are open around me, but Ottawa has some benefits that other Ontario cities don’t have because we have the Rideau Center, which is deemed a “Tourist Area” so all of its stores will be open and we are across the river from Gatineau/Hull and there all stores are open today. Will I go shopping? I might run to Tim Horton’s to have a Pro-Monarchist Coffee and Donut, but that is about it.

Happy Victoria Day

Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria, no doubt wondering where Prince Albert is (in the can would be my guess)

Why do we celebrate this holiday still? We need a holiday in May as simple a reason as that. In Quebec they call it Journée nationale des patriotes , and not much is closed (so maybe I can get my beer over there?).


The Workers Control the Means of Production, Happy Labour Day

Yes my Union Brothers let us celebrate the Workers control of the means of production, Happy Labour Day to all my hard-working brother and sisters. Sorry, it’s in my contract I have to write that.

Labor Day

Labor Day

Let us celebrate the worker today, who on their back Canada was built:

  • Our hard-working farmers, and the workers on farms (many times migrant workers), without them, we do not eat!
  • The factory worker who builds your stoves, fridges and even computers (yes some of them are still built-in Canada).
  • The cooks, servers, and cleaning staffs at all those restaurants we frequent, not a great job to have, but I appreciate your hard work.
  • The service workers who work in our banks, stores, cinemas, etc., etc.,, but also the new age service folks who answer the phones on the help lines (no not all of them are in India, my daughter works in a call center). Hard jobs, because you have to deal with hot-headed customers (like me sometimes).
  • And all my other working brothers and sisters, I say thank you and enjoy your day off (if you do, in fact, get the day off).

Labour day doesn’t have anything to do with Communism or the like, it is about Workers and today we should celebrate all their hard work!

Happy Holiday with No Name

Yes it is the first Monday in August holiday (here in Ontario), it goes by many names, however I don’t think this poor holiday does not have an official name, but enjoy it with your family, as I am. One of my favourite songs is America’s Horse with No Name, but that doesn’t really have much to do with this topic.

For your reading pleasure here are a few of the OBG (Oldie but Goody) posts I have been putting out on the BCM (Big Cajun Man) Twitter feed:

PolicyAdvisor - The Brand New Way to Compare and Buy Life Insurance

Enjoy the extra day off (unless you work in retail, then you have my sympathies).
