"Because the old black rum's got a hold on me
Like a dog wrapped round my leg
And the old black rum's got a hold on me
Will I live for another day?
Hey, Will I live for another day?" ~ Great Big Sea
One of the all time great drinking songs by Newfoundland band Great Big Sea, The Old Black Rum is a terrific song that you can listen to here. If you ever get a chance to see them live, don't pass it up. It's an ideal tune for today. It is Canada Day here north of the border, which means I'll be hanging around with thousands of other demented Canucks in the downtown core of our capital city. Before I do, I'll leave you with links- check out our joint blog for our latest Snippet Sunday post. And check out my photoblog, since today is a City Daily Photo Theme Day.
My tradition for Canada Day has been to show places in each province and territory, from east to west. Some are places I've been to. Others are places I must see someday. The photos are drawn from elsewhere on the web, and marked for locations. Enjoy, and for my fellow Canadians, Happy Canada Day!
Try not to guzzle down too much maple syrup.
