thatgrrl is the “Oh Canada” Contributor on Squidoo

127_12730745166_3618_nToday we’re happy to introduce you to thatgrrl. She’s our “Oh Canada” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Oh Canada is my home and native land, just as the anthem says. I really love exploring Canadian art, history, culture, people, places, traditions…. all of it.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I fell in love with Canada when my family decided to expand our igloo to include my Grandmother rather than set her adrift on the ice. Grandma taught me how to drive the dog team and gut a baby seal. It was Grandma’s idea to coat the outsides of the igloo with Canadian bacon grease to keep the heat in and then maple syrup to help the ice stick together during the July thaw… are you really believing this? I love Canada for many things – humour being one of them.
