Well, reminiscing........... Sunday River! We had a great time there! Then we finished with the Maine coast and on to New Brunswick and just a touch of Nova Scotia!

If we can swing it, there will be a re-visit to the Maine coast this fall!

Ok, well, depending on where you are located, "Mother Country", may mean different things.

In the Lower (vs a vis the Perspective from the Ocean, up the St. Laurence River) region of the former "Lower Canada" portions of "kay-beck", the "Mother Country" would be from the explorers that sailed from France in 1534.

Britain and France w/Spain signed a treaty in 1763 that ceded the former colonies in the Americas to England.

So began the expansion from the "Mother Country" of "England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland to the region that was called "Upper Canada", and were offered parcels of land for just "working" the land, and selling the crops, forests, beaver pelts, etc., in trade.

Because of the spelling of the cumulative amount of effort involved in these activities, that sum is called "Labour" collectively (instead of Labor(US).

from the segment in Wikipedia [1]

Quote:
Labour Day (French: Fête du Travail) has been celebrated on the first Monday in September in Canada since the 1880s. The origins of Labour Day in Canada can be traced back to December 1872 when a parade was staged in support of the Toronto Typographical Union's strike for a 58-hour work-week.[5] The Toronto Trades Assembly (TTA) called its 27 unions to demonstrate in support of the Typographical Union who had been on strike since March 25.[5] George Brown, Canadian politician and editor of the Toronto Globe hit back at his striking employees, pressing police to charge the Typographical Union with "conspiracy."[5] Although the laws criminalising union activity were outdated and had already been abolished in Great Britain, they were still on the books in Canada and police arrested 24 leaders of the Typographical Union. Labour leaders decided to call another similar demonstration on September 3 to protest the arrests. Seven unions marched in Ottawa, prompting a promise by Canadian Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald to repeal the "barbarous" anti-union laws.[5] Parliament passed the Trade Union Act on June 14 the following year, and soon all unions were seeking a 54-hour work-week.
So, as you can see, it has very little to do with the "Labour Party(UK)" other than its formation was as a result of the effects of actions by the Owners of Wealth in the land trying to impose "His/Her Majesties' wil" over the people who actually cut the logs, and built the homes and machines that we use today[IMHO].

From Wikipedia again:

Quote:
Labour Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers.


Title: Labour Day parade, Yonge Street north of Shuter Street
Date: after 1900,

Yes, I do understand when someone writes 'In Jest'.

Now, do you know what this means?

PS. Canada was having "Labour Day" Parades since 1872, 10 years before the parade held in New York City, Sept 5, 1882.

Yeah, because it took 10 years to parade the length of Yonge St.

It's not direct injection because it's mixed in the intake air.
And it's "saug", using suction, unless you have a friend to act as a blower.

be sure to reciprocate.

I'm exploring some options in Denver for 2016 - too soon for me to really do anything with Denver for 2015 unless a bunch of locals step up with a solid proposal really quickly.

Ha Ha... Funny.

But you are partly correct.

Prior to 1999 "Yonge Street" ran for 1896 km all the way to Rainy River in Ontario.

From one Municipal Jurisdiction to the next it has changed from 4 lanes to a divided highway, and then back again, but still retained the name of "Yonge Street", and continued the numbering from South to North.

In 1999 the Provincial Gov't of the day got the brainy idea to "sell' the non-critical to State Commerce Secondary class roads back to their 'lower tier' Government. [1]

This then severed the continuous road into different segments. It lost the designation "Canada's Longest Road". [See Picture]


1896 km = 1053 Miles !

"The Terry Fox Marathon of Hope" started in July, 1980. Terry Fox was a Canadian Marathon Runner who had to have an amputation of one leg due to cancer. Following his initial convalescence and recovery, he began running agian. The "Marathon of Hope" had him travelling by foot 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi) in 143 days. His marathion across Canada was cut short by him developing Cancer in his lungs. [2]

His average road distance was 37.5 km per day.

To travel "Yonge Street" , could take ~90 days for a marahton runner!
(slightly longer if it's a marching parade).

Contact the ski lodges. It's between season but they are ramping up. We could take over Aspen.

Is that why I feel more attractive when surrounded by even uglier people?
