I actually had an affection for the Queen Mum, or at least as much as I could have as a redneck. At least Lizzy II has been keeping Chuck off the throne. Followed her history. She's got a lot of sand. Hope she lives to be 120 at least.

I like hats. Is beheading still in practice up there?

Pray tell. Will you beheading there soon?

Funny, beheading sounds like they're adding one to the body. Unheading sounds more descriptive.

48, bald, fat Polish git. Married twice, divorced the same quantity. My supergenius son just turned 12, and has an interest in Linux and obsolete computer operating systems.

I like to write (former journalist and printer), and have an interest in both motorcycles and world history. How's that?

I'd rather go to Canada than many other places on earth, and I've been to a few of them.

Nar mention of a couple of the finer delicacies so a i will add some that should be tried.
Salt fish and brewis is a local delicacy served with scrunchions.
Try some seal flipper stew covered in a thick pastry.
Fish cakes and beans for breakfast keeps you going all day.
Bakeapples are a small berry and you will see people selling jars of them on the Northern Peninsula. They only grow on the barrens (sub-arctic tundra) and are spectacular on cheesecake or ice-cream.
In Newfoundland if you ask for fish it is cod. Everything else is by species (halibut, trout, salmon) but there is only one fish.
In Cod We Trust.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

I own a Bakeapple Ranch on Deming Island, Guysborough, NS. If I were there 24/7/365, I could probably collect enough to cover the taxes at $140 per annum.

Beans is good food. We'll be bringin' some beans, sure.
