I've always been suspicious that many Canadians are secretly supportive of global warming!

I've always looked for blueberries in July, perhaps I grew up too far north.

Or perhaps you aren't 5 years old. :) When we went on a canoe trip together on the long August weekend last year, there were blueberries everywhere. So in Teeny's experience, canoeing = blueberries. Her parents had prepared her but she had to check for herself.

@Eldersmith, funny you should say that today. I've been seething that a man of limited intellect and ethics has been granted so much power that he can just tweet, "I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!" That decision could have a huge impact on world health, economy and ecosystems for generations, and it's being made by a man who doesn't know what he doesn't know. Only a tiny percentage of the earth's population voted to give a completely unqualified man the power to mess up the future for the rest of us, and that is frustrating.

In short, I'm happy to wait for my blueberries. :)

I can certainly understand Teeny's point of view, since most of our family vacations for a few years until the kids got to be about five and could walk a little further and faster involved August canoe camping trips to places like La Verendrye, Algonquin, or Quetico with plenty of blueberries around as a primary attraction. But being aware of your feelings about Trump (not so different from my own), I couldn't resist a comment!

:) To be fair, Canadians could be doing more about climate change too.

Women's College Hospital had plants growing on all of its roofs today. That seems like a start.

And I talked with a roofing guy about a Tesla roof today. Not now but maybe in a few years.

I think I'll be ready for a Tesla powered house in about five years.
