   Safetydude  From Nova Scotia(the Alabama of Canada )to all of Canada by one of my favorite performers who happens to be Canadian.
Sometimes I would see Gordon in a cafe in Yorkville, (Toronto )when I lived around the corner from Eastern Sounds Studios, when he was recording. No, I was not a draft dodger and he never recognized me. Bummer.

There are better video's but I like this one because that's how he looked in the early 70's.

   Ole buzzard  The problem is that it is NOT our money. It's our kids and grandkids. And we owe it to China, who is preparing for war with US! And when that happens, who do we borrow our money from?

   Escaped commieny  West quote:
Excess ammunition? We were begging for excess ammunition for training purposes. And I recall on several occasions when I was an Army exchange officer with the II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune working out some issues on ammunition transfer and training between XVIIIth Airborne Corps, Ft. Bragg. So what is this baloney?

   Safetydude  Thank You John C

I had never heard, or heard of, Stan Rogers.
So now just ordered his 'Best Of' CD and added him to my 'Pandora' music stations.

Who know Air Canada flew into Cincinnati?

I knew this would be a great Wall.

I like "Lies" and "The Field Behind The Plow". A little different than the 'typical' Irish songs.

Thank's for the recommendation.
