Just like us in Canada to muscle in on Gingersnap Day with something as insignificant as our own national holiday. Oh so polite we pretend to be, then something like this shows our true colours.

I'll go and watch the Canada day fireworks tonight, but will bring Gingersnaps with me in solidarity.

Not being Canadian, it is hard for me to think of a better way to celebrate your fine nation than with a song about the best that Canada has to offer.

The posts with two famous bikinis pictures 1) Ursula Andress in the James Bond movie Dr No and 2) Raquel Welch in 1,000,000 years BC appears to have disappeared.

I don't understand who would have got upset and complain about those widely circulated world famous movie pictures.

Plus the picture of a fully clothed beach vender selling bikinis on the beach in Rio also disappeared.

C'est la vie.

JULY 6 NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY
http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/National-Fried-Chicken-Day-July-6-e1467129224878.jpgNational Fried Chicken Day July 6

NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY

In the United States, National Fried Chicken Day is observed each year on July 6th. On this day, fried chicken lovers across the country celebrate this American favorite at a nearby restaurant, home or an outdoor picnic.



Scottish immigrants brought their tradition of deep-frying chicken in fat to the southern United States. After its introduction to the American South, fried chicken soon became a staple. Over time, seasonings and spices were added to enrich the flavor of the chicken.



Fried chicken is a dish that consists of chicken pieces which have been floured or battered then pan-fried, deep-fried or pressure-fried. The breading adds a crisp coating (**) to the exterior of the chicken.



Traditionally the chicken is fried in lard. However, corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil or vegetable oil are also frequently used.
