O Canada!

Columbus Day is a weird holiday.

I mean — if I worked in an office, I’d love the day off as much as the next person.  But celebrating the life of a man who enslaved and tortured Native Americans is a bit distasteful.

So today I pay tribute instead to a different holiday  —

CANADIAN THANKSGIVING!

Thank you, Canada, for so many amazing celebs who entertain us all in television and film —

Canada Actors

 

I’m know there are also female Canadian actors to be thankful for, but hey — it’s my blog.

I know what I like.

 

Comedy gold

Gary David GoldbergI’m thinking about Gary David Goldberg today.

He died Sunday morning after a long battle with brain cancer.

Of course, when I think of Goldberg, the image at left doesn’t come to mind.

His shows do.

Family Ties.  Spin City.  Michael J. Fox comedies that Goldberg brought to life.

And as much as I loved those sitcoms, I particularly loved the way they signed off.

We even named one of our dogs Ubu.

(He didn’t have the longevity of Goldberg’s career, but he was awfully cute.)
