  11. Happy July 4th to al you guys "south of the border"
  12. This is Canada Day.....happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks. Before we joined Canada in 1949 this was our Memorial Day. It commemorates the anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. The Royal Nfld Regiment went 'over the top' at Beaumont Hamel with 801 of all ranks. Next morning 68 answered roll call. A casualty rate of over 90% We raise the Maple Leaf at sunrise ( first in Canada ) and sing Oh Canada. Then we raise the Newfoundland flag and simultaneously lower both to half staff and sing the Ode o Newfoundland ( our old national anthem) We have a Memorial Day parade and moment of silence at 11:00am . The parade is dismissed at about 11:45 am and the Canada Day celbrations begin.
  13. best of luck OG. Travelling prayers for you. Are you going to raise rabbits ?
  14. I plan to wait until they release their first service pack before going to 10 from 8.1
  15. I'm probably closer the Maine than most of you and me an Cobraj "might" be distant cousins ( us Newfies have a pretty "shallow gene pool" )
  16. I have thought the same thing and while I think it would be sad. It's inevitable. I come to read the WW2 posts and see old mates from EAW days. My current PC has no sims installed at all. I still have occasional contact with Ogdens and Coolhand and a couple of others from the old squadron. Time marches on. There is an old gentleman whom I am privileged to call friend. He's 93 and we talked a few days ago about his memories of VE day. He was on convoy escort in the RN at the time. He had not been home in 5 years. He commented that all his war time comrades were dead and that young folks were forgetting the war. I guess we too shall "fade away" after a time. I gave up cigarettes when they hit 85 cents a pack, but I can still pinch a nurse now and then
  17. yup...when Eric Clapton says he admires you ..you know you can play guitar RIP BB
  18. we hit double digits yesterday !!! +10c first time since last November
  19. The temperature is slowly edging towards the melting point. With luck most f the snow will have melted by May.
