    On a local note Veterans Day is Sunday, November 11th. A quick shout out to my brother and sister veterans past and present.

    As in years past, several restaurants and other businesses are recognizing Vets with free meals and other discounts.

    Also happy Marine Corp birthday.

    In Flanders Fields

    In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army

    These free dinner at Ponderosa commercials are incredibly annoying.

    Remembrance Day here in Canada.

    We're off to the Cenotaph later this morning to honour our veterans.

    Thank you to all who served and are serving. We're the land of the free only because of the brave.
