Song from Vimy Memorial 2007 Rededication

Many posts have been made about the song that was performed at the Vimy 2007 Memorial Rededication this past Easter Monday. Although the fiddle piece was the work of Sierra Noble, the song itself (performed by the Confederation Youth Chorus and Susan Aglukark) was "I'm Dreaming of Home" (as noted here) , one of the hymns from the movie Joyeux Noel, about the Christmas eve in World War I, when the troops from both sides had their own truce.

As luck would have it, I have found a clip of it here.

Enjoy.

Another reason not to ever buy fur

Fur coats from dogs?

This is just wrong! What's worse is that even the companies didn't know. They buy goods (from China) and think they're getting fake.

Sometimes you really wonder when China is going to start acting like a real country instead of one that flips its finger at the rest of the world.



Is your fur fake, or is it Fido?
