Last week I received the latest email newsletter from Bird Kingdom.
From Niagara at Large:
Congressman Brian Higgins is encouraged that progress will be made to address staffing issues on the border between the United States and Canada following today’s Northern Border Caucus meeting in Washington, D.C. with Canadian Ambassador David MacNaughton.
Prior to the meeting with the entire caucus, the Congressman and the Ambassador met briefly and discussed the specific staffing and the resulting traffic problems at the Niagara River crossings.
All that majesty, power and water didn’t stop Oscar Wilde from quipping about Niagara Falls being the second disappointment in the married life of many American brides who spend their honeymoon there, after he visited it in 1882. Can’t please everyone? Take this quiz to see how much you know about the natural feature.
I took the quiz and got 26 out of 30.
From the Norwich (Connecticut) Bulletin:
With the economy making the U.S. dollar worth almost a third more across our northern border, now is a great time to grab your passport and escape to Canada’s Niagara Region for a chance to view the beauty and power of Niagara Falls, the collective name for the three waterfalls on the Niagara River that drain Lake Erie into Lake Ontario.
Straddling the international border between New York State and the province of Ontario, the Niagara Falls were formed during the last ice age as water from the newly formed Great Lakes made its way to the Atlantic Ocean approximately 25,000 to 21,000 years ago. Renowned for both their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power, Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls are a true wonder to see and well worth the time spent getting there.
