Huge Weekend for Airshow London
More than 22,000 people watched the Canadian Snowbirds in awe this weekend with some action from the CF-18 Hornet too. Even though Saturday was cancelled due to rain, the turnout was still great. Fanshawe Students from the school of aviation technology and public safety got a chance to serve and raise money for bursaries in their programs, the Children’s Hospital and our veterans. Airshow London 2017 is already in the works, mark down the first weekend after Labour day next year.
Eleven Neatly-Arranged Dead Snakes Found in London???
Well this freaks me right out – The London Humane Society found eleven dead snakes beside a garbage pickup location – not in a heap, neatly arranged by someone in the grass – on Friday morning. They haven’t given us the exact location but the Humane Society says they were 1-3 year old pythons. Here’s the rule in London: city bylaws state snakes longer than two feet in length are not permitted, and a few of them were longer than two feet. Anyone have Alice Cooper’s number?
Who Picked Up an Emmy?
I’m not going to lie, I watched Fear of the Walking Dead instead of the Emmys – but here are some of the big wins…
Game of Thrones won Best Drama – The HBO series was up for 24 awards and won half of them, breaking the previous record set by a sitcom, Frasier! In total, Frasier won 38 Emmys over the years.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her show Veep won Best Comedy – she also won Best Actress in a Comedy and gave a cute little speech [watch below]. Canadian Tatiana Maslany won Best Actress in a Drama for her work in Orphan Black.
Blue Jays Losing Steam…Again
