    Apparently, until recently, a Canuck could ask the Government of Canada for a picture of the Queen and the government would send one for free. Let me officially say that as a born and raised Canadian, all my life, and now in my senior years, . . . . . .
    "I - never - knew - that."

    Unfortunately for me, this service has stopped and now you can download a JPEG and print it yourself. So, of course, I poked around and found it. Here's the link to the download page:

    "Royal Portraits"
    Royal Portraits - Canada.ca

    For those of you elsewhere in the world, I don't think the Government of Canada will mind if you download one too.

    Did you know you can also get a free Canadian flag by going into your MPs office and asking for one?

    Quality is poorish, especially the Phillip shot.

    Oh? I nneeeed one! :)

    I should look into that. :)

    I'll reserve judgement until I see it printed. I find some pictures look better or worse after the Walmart Kodak rig gets done with it. After all these years, I'm surprised that this is still true, but it is.

    That's kinda cool. When I was a kid we took a vacation in Michigan and drove into Windsor just to go to Canada. I got a little dish with a picture of the Queen.

    That was long before I discovered hockey.
