I live in Canada too! We must be neighbors!

Welcome aboard Dean. We have members on waters all across the country. Where do you float?

Thank you for the welcome. I live and work in Ontario, but L L is presently on the hard in Portimao, Portugal awaiting some TLC. Fair weather to all.

Welcome to the forum, would you Canucks consider annexing Alaska into your fold?

You'd think we would, wouldn't you? But we can see Russia already, thanks. From the North Pole.

With pleasure. We should have bought it in the first place ... we were getting low on beer at the time and the money came in handy ... still should have grabbed that one!

Too late, dammit.

Canoed down the Stikine River a few years ago with some friends and we marvelled all the way to Wrangel that somehow the Panhandle wound up in US hands, when all the facts of geography seem to say it should be part of British Columbia.

Oh, well.

I love your beer and I can learn to say eh? after every sentence. My Dad married a B.C. woman. And we are sorry about Sarah. She sounds like she is from Wisconsin anyway.

Thanks, that means a lot.

We're sorry about Celine Dion.
