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.
Aubreyesque How lovely! I do love tall sail. Does she specialize in nautical art?

John C posted on Main Page The Lobby Did any one notice today that the government kept such poor records of the age of ammo, that they are going to destroy over a Billion dollars worth it. It is only our money to waste.
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?

Escaped commieny made me cry, my Grandpa was blinded by the mines and Uncle Mike crushed in the Wilkes Barre coal mines, Mollie McQuires were formed. today unions are corrupt but back then, they were for the workers.
I like "Lies" and "The Field Behind The Plow". A little different than the 'typical' Irish songs.
Thank's for the recommendation.
