It's just a bit of a surprise for a team ranked 7th in the world and it was just a pun on the national anthem.

Good job Australia made it through. To keep up the interest levels.
I don't even know Canada's national anthem () so I missed all that, I thought you were a bit upset about the result. How dare you not be upset when I'm trying to make you feel better

You weren't glued to the pre-match ceremonies? Nor was I, and at 7.00 KO it was an okay time. Not like 5.30am for England's last game that I was up for.

When I was first here I just assumed it was Oh Canada but it turns out to be O Canada. Quite apt today. Australia 4-O Canada.
What with Oh (no) Canada, it seems to work on many fronts.

Here's the best version though.

Nope. I can't remember the last time I stood near a bonfire. Late 90s I reckon.

I wanted some Lime Marmalade. No sign of Robertson's or Rose's in the usual places and it works out to at least $22 a jar from Amazon.
Found a PEI company - with a place in NS too - called Made in the Maritimes who had their version plus some other interesting sounding jams/marmalades.
Just over a tenner a jar and a flat rate $10 delivery fee.

Yesterday I ordered 6 to try, my acknowledgement email was received 11.03am.
At 11.42 I received an email saying parcel shipped. 39 minutes?
Probably just packed I thought.

Parcel arrived today 9.45am.

One of the jars is this

My printer keeps asking for paper jam but I can't find a jar of the stuff anywhere.

If you leave your door open you can start with ajar.
