    Default Oh Canada


    So aren't you guys going to wish Canada a happy birthday, In 1867 we became a free and independent country . We didn't shoot at you like the yanks did.

    Harry and Kate are here, going to cost us a few million so they can watch a rodeo and play some ball hockey

    Happy Birthday Canada. You've done well for yourself since gaining independence.

    You've set a fine example Scotland has the opportunity to follow up on June 24th 2014. Which co-incidentally happens to be the 700th anniversary of this famous battle.

    good luck, were 144 years without British rule

    I live in a small town called Glencoe, guess who settled this town, give you a hint, the street names have a mac in front of the names. Except they called main street, main street. You can tell everyone is of scotish decent . there's lots of bar fights and no one tips the bar maid.

    Here's a little battle that happened a few miles from where I live, during the war of 1812, we kicked the yanks arse, except we lost this battle, the royal scots got a bloody nose.

    You've never been here, have you? Did all our waifs, strays and dirty scoundrels emigrate to Canada? Lol

    We had friends from Johannesburg leave after a month long tour of the UK. According to them, the Scottish folks and people who work in the service industry did their country proud. Their friendliness and generosity were noted so next time they will spend their whole visit in Scotland and avoid England altogether. Other than that, I can't really make much of a defence for the shit weather we have 10 months of the year.

    I live near the site of a famous battle and one of the last places the Scots gave the English army a beating during the 2nd Jacobite uprising. The fellow in the logo in the first site I mention is Adam Watters from Prestonpans.
