Happy Columbus Day & Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

Best wishes today to my American friends as you celebrate the arrival of Columbus to the new world in 1492 and to my Canadian friends as you celebrate Thanksgiving Day. I hope you enjoy the BBQs, parades and family get together's. We have much to be thankful for and my thoughts are with those, such as myself, whose lives have been saved by an organ transplant and today is a perfect time to honor and thank our donors and donor families for giving us a second chance at life.
