Quote of the Day: Australia and Canada were settled by adventurers, they had to break new ground. I think that is indelibly etched on our cultural spirit. - Tom Cochrane

Pardon me while I climb into the Way Back Machine today, but years ago, the Public Broadcasting System used to use fillers if a television show didn't quite fill the hour, and one of my favorites was this animated short from The National Film Board of Canada. (I know that many of you have seen this before--probably many times--but I'm feeling a bit nostalgic today, so I thought I'd dig it out and share).

A fitting video for a romance writer, don't you think? Uh oh, now I'll be humming this all day.

Have a great day!

I liked your quote of the day. I have not seen the animated short before, moose not being native to Australia.
