    I'm confused - is there something weird going on with the dates on here .. Evie's post says it was posted today but wasn't Thanksgiving Monday in the US?

    Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to you all anyhow...

      Puzzled Moose,
      Today is Thanksgiving day in the US, they always celebrate on a Thursday, it is a beautiful long weekend for them. It is always the Thursday closest to the 25th of Nov. I believe most Americans consider Thanksgiving Day as the first day of the Christmas Season.
      Hope this clears things up for you

              Thanks, Marsha - I'm unconfused now .. I've just got used to celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving over the last 4 years. As you probably know we don't celebrate it at all in England - shame really - I like turkey

              Victoria Day is the one here I can't quite figure, since Victoria Day isnt celebrated in England either - why is she so important out of all the kings and queens we've had? (Other than having a provincial capital named after her ..lol)

                  Interesting Fact: Did you know that Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the Turkey as the official bird for the USA?

                  I'm glad the Eagle won out. I'd hate to eat eagle once every year... turkey much better....mmmmm .

                    I hope you don't mind Grizz, but I added the word "eat" before the word eagle in your last line. I had to read it a couple times to figure out what was missing in that line. It kinda makes me wonder though. Have you ever eaten eagle?

                        Now you've really got me thinking, Victoria Day is celebrated in recognition of Queen Victoria's birthday. Queen Victoria was the longest reigning monarch in the Britsh Empire, and on her death in 1901 Canada declared May 24th as a statutory holiday. Canada was a commonwealth of the British Empire at the time, under British rule, the declaration of a staturory holiday in honour of the Queen was certainly appropriate at the time. Perhaps not so appropriate now because we are no longer ruled by Britain. There's lots more here about Queen Victoria if you're interested.

                          I knew that QV was the longest serving of our monarchs, though Liz is rapidly catching up I was just curious as to why following QV's death her birthday was made a holiday here in Canada but not in the UK.

                          Personally I can't see why Canada wants to retain the queen even as a figurehead but then I'm not a great royalist by any means ...

                          I'm surprised that Prince Philip is allowed back to many countries - did you hear his comment when visiting Canada:

                          "We don't come here for our health. We can think of other ways of enjoying ourselves." Just one of the many countries he's insulted .. a small list here:

                            Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                            Thanks Rolf,
                            I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                            Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                            This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
