    There’s so much work still to do. A church in my village uploaded their first web site this very morning.

    Might I add a French-Canadian adaptation:
    “Bonne journée de la tuque bleue”

  5. Michael Kozakewich said on

    Wouldn’t it be more like, “Bonne journée du toque bleu!” or is it only French-Canadians who do the toque thing?

    I’ve been trying to teach students about standards while tutoring. “Now, turn that onClick event to onclick…”
    Bonne journée!

    « Bonne journée du bonnet bleu ! » would be even better, with French quotation marks (guillemets) and a space before the exclamation mark. The word “chapeau” is a translation for “hat”. “bonnet” is more specific.
    That’s all for the French lesson. I wish you a happy Blue Beanie Day from the French speaking part of Belgium!
