While the official Canada Day might 1st July, last Wednesday was the next best thing

It was my birthday, and I got given the new Serena Ryder CD - “If your memory serves you well”.

Serena Ryder performing on SBS TV's RocKwiz She’s a young Canadian singer that first came to my attention while watching RocKiz on the motel tv at Wagga Wagga while attending CodeCamp last month. I’ve never seen the show before as our SBS reception is virtually non-existant at home (lots of snow!). Anyway, she not only had a very good knowledge of music trivia, but has a really nice voice.

Toby and his wife Jen live in Canada, and this is their first child. Congratulations to all concerned.
