Blue Niagara

I was expecting royal watchers in Britain to wet their knickers with excitement at the news of the Duchess of Cambridge's new baby, but I wasn't expecting Niagara Falls to turn blue for a boy (CLICK). Presumably the falls were ready to go pink for a girl. Very sexist, but rather pretty. Those of you who suffer from a nervous disposition might like to brace yourselves for the traditional 41-gun salute by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in Green Park at 2pm. Also at 2pm the Honourable Artillery Company - the City of London's army reserve regiment - will fire a 62-gun salute from Gun Wharf at the Tower of London. And the bells of Westminster Abbey will start ringing for three hours! Come to think of it, if you suffer from a nervous disposition what the hell are you doing in Ghetto London?

Now this is something different. What a way to celebrate. Which country had the idea? The American side or the Canadian side or both?

The Canadian side, I assume.
