Lantern Festival

The Last Day of February... 2010 is the Lantern Festival, which happens on the 15th day of the Lunar New Year.  It would be a good evening to go to where ever there is a display of outdoor lanterns.  Unfortunately, not this evening, as the weather is wet and dank and cool.
Canada -- U.S.A. Gold Medal Hockey Match
I am happy this pairing is taking place.  As a North American, whose grandparents lived in Canada and the U.S., I don't really care who wins the match because I am happy at the fact that no European teams have made it, although a Latvia - North American final would have been the best possible matchup.  If the Americans win, I will have the pleasing prospect of reading about much wailing and gnashing of teeth among Canadian anti-Americans -- a scummy, parasitical bunch as there ever was.  If Canada wins, the world would at least be as it should be on one point.
