Thanks all for the helpful advice once again. This list is great. A word to
Adam, may I just say that the Eastern Canada in which I live is 1000 miles
east of Montreal, just across the Bay of Fundy from Boston. We cross country
ski rather than snow shoe but couldn't do that this past open winter. Hockey
is a bad word these days as both players and owners consider their personal
greeds ahead of the fans that made them and we Canadians at the present time
are no happier with our government than you are with yours but for different
reasons- most politicians lie. Keep the faith and keep up the words of
advice and wisdom; they are appreciated. Cheers!!
Jude
