bonne annee


This photo was taken at Broadway and Granville, December 29th, at twilight, about 4:30 p.m.

Canadians who want to start the year enjoying one of our greatest assets/exports (humour), check out this article and tune in to the CBC January 1st and 2nd. (Our other greatest exports, according to Mike Myers, are hockey players and bauxite.)

Now I can see it, too! I hate to admit that I'm not brilliant -- I just liked the photo. But hey, maybe my subconscious has a leg up on the rest of me that I don't know anything about. It's probably best to keep it that way... :)

Did the year pass that quickly? Now that I have more years in back of me then ahead, I sure wish they'd go slower. Great pix to start the new year.

hi andrea, I see we all made it to 2006 yahoo! love this picture really beautiful colours! Thi article made me a little sad as Phil Hartman was my husbands brother. I hope that he is included in this show! They erected a statue of Phil in Brantford along with the Wayne Gretzky statue(the 2 most well known brantfordinites) and John along with the town of Brantford put on a major comedy festival in Brantford after his untimely death death. I love comedy and my John is as funny as Phil was! I will show this to John as I'm sure he would like to know about it.

Brian and Janey: Thanks!

Merlinprincesse: Did you knowhtat Wayne & Shuster were the only act that Ed Sullivan would allow to go on for 12-16 minutes?

Val: That's fascinating that your husband is Phil Hartman's brother and yes, Phil was a prominent segment in part 1. Your husband would've loved to have seen this show I think.

I'm sure that I already wished you happy new year somewhere else on your blog but, in case not, here it comes again: Happy New Year...I hope that 2006 will be a good one.

However, it seems that wishes of another sort are in order too:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
