I’m actually a little unsure of my plans for the long weekend, so I’m going to say to expect postings back on Tuesday.  For those of you wondering about the origins of Victoria Day and why we still celebrate it, I’ve included a useful Wikipedia link.  I didn’t know it was meant to celebrate our reigning sovreign’s birthday as well as that of old Queen Vickie.  Give it a read and impress (or bore) your friends!  Have fun and good luck if you are still in front of your computer, rather than at the cottage or visiting family.
