    Re: Mothering Sunday

    May 10 is Mother's Day in Canada (and USA) this year. My mother never tired of reminding us that every other day of the year was "Kid's Day".

    Thanks Ranald, the link works fine! A neat kid with a great story, but of course I'm partial to crows: my name translated from Suisse-Deutsch refers to Crows on a Hillside.
