Post 1446 – Christmas Tie 2010, Day Two

Hello, festive readers.  Welcome to day two of the 3rd annual Bevboy’s Blog Christmas Tie Extravaganza. 

Here I am in front of the Joseph Howe statue next to the Nova Scotia legislature in downtown DSCF4789Halifax.  Joe Howe was many things, but is best known for successfully defending himself against a libel suit lodged against him by politicians of the day.  After all that crap, he became a politician himself, and eventually became the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia.  He actually died in office, and I was on a tour of the mansion last year and was in the very room where he croaked.  I mean, died.  How rude of me.

Many things in NS are named after Joseph Howe.  There is a grocery store named after him.  And, of course, across the street from the statue is the office building named after him. 

 DSCF4790I’m off work on Friday, after an exhausting night at the Wizard of Oz production at Neptune Theatre.  That followed a profoundly shitty meal at Mix in downtown Halifax.  Seriously.  Stay away from that place.

I’ll write something tomorrow.  Back to the Christmas ties on Monday.
