        WOW!  Not only would I NEVER consider myself an American (which is
uniformly regarded, worldwide, as a citizen of the USA) I have a hard time
calling myself a Canadian!!

...but that is just a Newfoundland nationalism thing. We used to be an
independent country ... now we're Canadians ...  (SNORE!)

This Newfoundlander will be on a road trip to Canada at the end of October.
I'll get to meet Ted Grant (Our National Treasure!) in Ottawa at a group
exhibition, in which, we both have images. 

Any other lug members in Eastern Canada, Montreal, Ottawa ????
