This August 31st

Here we are, the last long weekend of summer.  Where does the time go?  How can it be the end of summer already?!  Those of us here in Toronto were treated to a very sunny, hot day, with temperatures in the high 30's (that's in the 90's in America speak) - I was having flashbacks to my time in Italy back at the end of June, that's how hot it was!  Forecast for the rest of the long weekend is looking equally good - what a treat.

It's the 15th anniversary of Princess Diana's death.  I miss her, don't you?

It's a blue moon tonight - which doesn't mean it's blue in colour, it just means it's the second full moon in a calendar month (although according to Wikipedia, that is not the correct interpretation.  Oops!)  Kyle Cassidy posted an awesome photo of the moon on his blog in the wee hours of this morning, you should check it out.  Then go outside after dark tonight and have a look at the real thing!
