    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Howdy there

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Welcome again from a Habs Fan who lives in the only place to ever say NO! to the Olympics!
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Welcome from Downeast Maine!

    Montreal is my favorite city (along with San Francisco), bar none - we used to go every year sans kids as our getaway for many years - formula one racing and the opera - you can get it all there

    We stayed in Westmont (?) - I could live there in a heartbeat!

    We are already training our 13 year old that McGill is where she'll want to go to college - just so we have to go visit

    post lots!

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Thanks for the hello's

    Thanks for the hello's everyone,

    I'm looking forward to chatting with you. McGill is a pretty cool place to go to school - I'm just finishing up my MUP here and will be hitting the job market momentarily. Montreal is indeed a beautiful city - but I sure like Boston too.

    Cheers, CanCon

    Welcome from NW Ohio.

    Just read a goode article about the great heavy metal bands that hail from Montreal.

    Here's a good Montreal story for ya.....

    Friend of mine was born and raised there, close to the river. He was in downtown Montreal for some reason, high up in a building, perhaps thirty (30) stories or so. While he was talking to whoever he was talking to, the people in the office moved to the window. Seems that there was a car on fire down on the street.

    It was my friend's car.

    Glad your here.

    Welcome from SW Mich.
    One question - what in your opinion is the best Canadian beer?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    oooooo, good question. Having hailed from Alberta I was, until recently, unnaquainted with the lovely tradition of Quebecois micro-brews. So I would have said before that I enjoyed the "Big Rock" offering quite a bit... Now, however, I think I have to vote for a company called Unibroue. They make a few really fabulous beers, such as a Belgian-style white called "Blanche de Chambly" and a few really potent ones (9% alcohol content + powerful tasting) such as "Maudite" and "La Fin du Monde." If ever in Quebec pick some up. Actually, you can get these beers in the sates (sometimes, some places...). They come in fabulous bottles too - large 750 ml volume (I can't convert to the imperial system in my head right now) with real corks.

    Failing grades for Canadian beers include (but are not limited to): Canadian (ironic eh?), Labatt Blue, Kokanee, and anything with "dry" written in large gold lettering across the lable.

    Welcome, from Irving, Texas!

    Hi there from a fellow Montrealer!

    Tell me what you're involved in, with what organization/institution. I'm at Concordia just now.
