Canada Oh Canada!

Wow! Did you catch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics?
I loved the Whale segment & the Riverdance/stomp presentation.

Hope it continues to be a great festival of extreme sports, and International goodwill.

I missed most of the opening, waaah! ... but I did catch and was very impressed with Shane Koyczan:

"We are more" ... he submitted this youtube and was awarded a main spot to read this prose poem in the olympic opening ceremony! A to Zed ... love it ... makes me want to go there now (oops, not right now, it's friggin cold up there in winter).

You do want to see it-- the producer, David Atkins did an excellent job of capturing the essence of the Pacific NW.

Yes the prose was great & in the course of my workday I speak w Canadian clients & they DO use the Z/Zed.

We went to Vancouver a few years ago, en route to Alaska & I loved it-- Canadians seem happier to me.
