Battle of Vimy Ridge from Canadian Encyclopedia. "The Battle of Vimy Ridge, during the First World War, is Canada's most celebrated military victory ... The four divisions of the Canadian Corps, fighting together for the first time, attacked the ridge from 9 to 12 April, 1917 and succeeded in capturing it from the German army. More than 10,500 Canadians were killed and wounded in the assault. Today an iconic white memorial atop the ridge commemorates the battle and honours the 11,285 Canadians killed in France throughout the war who have no known graves."

Pawpaw Basics - Hosted by the Toronto Seed Library. Learn about the Pawpaw (Assimina triloba), largest native fruit in North America.

Participants can purchase native Southern Ontario-stock Pawpaw saplings.

Paw Paw, Paw paw, or pawpaw may refer to: Asimina, the pawpaw genus, a genus of trees and shrubs native to eastern North America. Common pawpaw (Asimina triloba), a temperate fruit tree, native to eastern North America. ~ Wikipedia.

Pawpaws: America's Best Secret Fruit by Sara Bir, Serious Eats.

Pawpaw, the Weirdest American Fruit You Never Knew About from Vice.com. "Pawpaw was Thomas Jefferson's favorite fruit, so much so that he planted his own grove of them at Monticello. Some slang terminology for these include the 'Indiana banana,' 'Hoosier banana' 'Poor Man's banana,' or the scientific name, 'Asimina triloba '.

There are over 27 varieties of pawpaw scattered throughout the United States. It grows rampant in 25 states in the East, ranging from northern Florida to southern Maine, growing as far west as eastern Nebraska. The pawpaw is a tropical fruit that is found almost exclusively in the wild, but there are also a small number of commercial orchards that sell cultivated varieties."

Plot Summary from IMDb. "Geoffrey Thorpe is an adventurous and dashing pirate, who feels that he should pirate the Spanish ships for the good of England. In one such battle, he overtakes a Spanish ship and when he comes aboard he finds Dona Maria, a beautiful Spanish royal. He is overwhelmed by her beauty, but she will have nothing to do with him because of his pirating ways (which include taking her prized jewels). To show his noble side, he suprises her by returning the jewels, and she begins to fall for him. When the ship reaches England, Queen Elizabeth is outraged at the actions of Thorpe and demands that he quit pirating. Because he cannot do this, Thorpe is sent on a mission and in the process becomes a prisoner of the Spaniards. Meanwhile, Dona Maria pines for Thorpe and when he escapes he returns to England to uncover some deadly secrets. Exciting duels follow as Thorpe must expose the evil and win Dona Maria's heart." ~ Written by Julie Sherman.
