Lest We Forget - In Flanders Fields - Memorial at John McCrae House, Guelph Ontario

Remembrance Day brings memories for me of a moment of silence in school and of recitations of In Flanders Fields. After having heard the poem recited hundreds of times I still find it moving. I was surprised to learn that the author of In Flanders Fields was a local. Dr. Lt. Col. John McCrae was born in Guelph, Ontario.

Come on. The new highway shields are nice, but the map in North America just isn't "there" yet. Our continental cousins may be satisfied with generic oval highway markers, but that just doesn't measure up in the New World.

The new markers, shown above, turned up on mapnik recently. They seem more refined than the rectangular signs used previously and they are very pretty. But they just aren't right for North America.
