    FYl about Canada Post strike

    Thanks, I hate to be 'heavy handed' but you are right... the Provincial Union is quite the organization for sure, and yes the ferry folks...... the couple times we went out, certainly wasn't worth it on any level.... and we were legislated 'essential service' so we were screwed, ....................all it did was make everyone mad at us and we lost pay.. and never did get any 'raise'......so it isn't worth it.... I just really hate being held hostage...... I get they have some issues, but it would be better to get the public ON their side instead of making folks upset at the crucial time of year............... or do I have that backwards??

    FYl about Canada Post strike

    Well, one thing is for sure, no matter what kind of outrageous raise they get, ( I was in highways maintenance for 38 years and for the last 10 we got NO raise ) it is going to cost US more.... and FWIW, rurally, everything is contracted out, our 'Post Office" is a little kiosk at the local drug store.......................and the service stinks...... our mail lady is so snotty, and she is a contractor, I don't even try to speak to her any more.....AND, if they have been negotiating for almost a year, why are they striking NOW?? To hold us all hostage?? and to get more bang for their issues.......................... just my 2 c worth....
  3. You're an example to ALL of us Dale...... Proud of you for slugging it out Mate...

    My first Telford 'Experience'

    Kent............... I agree with Tom, for those of us who cannot make it there, your explanation and the few photos are awesome, many thanks for sharing, I only wish there was more, so as I and maybe others can get a grasp on the size of it all , and what it all looks like... I'm surprised there aren't more photos posted by all that went there......may be a bit redundant for those who went, but a larger majority of us couldn't be there, thanks for sharing your experience, it was ( is ) great, and really interesting....

    Great Canadiana Fighter Pilot biography

    I also have corresponded with Russ, and again I concur, 99, that's awesome !..........................................but I will say one of the BEST connections I made was with W/C Hugh Godefroy, we corresponded over many years and made a meet in Vancouver,over a long lunch, wow he was a GREAT fellow, and two more were extremely wonderful was Al Harley and Don Morrison, both who were very generous to me, and became lifelong friends, and that's not even to mention G/C Hamish Mahaddie, who had my family to his home in England...................... sad to say they are all gone now............. but I'd like to think I'm a better person for the contact I made with these fellows.......

    Great Canadiana Fighter Pilot biography

    I agree, I have corresponded with him in the past, he even sent me some paper items from his own collection for me to make copies of, photos, and written accounts....., and I faithfully returned them to him with much thanks and gratitude, he is a VERY nice man , and a real gentleman.... the items I have copied from him along with personal letters in my collection are highly prized by me, and hold a special spot... I also have his book Kitty Hawk Pilot, first edition autographed ....... good stuff.....as well if I dig deep enough I also have a copy of his art print in my collection..... Jeff

    Wolf Buddee, Congrats !!!

    Yup, that's it, R/T aka "Random Thoughts", that's what they call IPMS Canada journal.....
  10. So, yesterday in the mail, I received my latest copy of R/T the IPMS Canada 'journal', and gracing the front cover is a photos of the "Best Canadian Subject" and the IPMS/USA Nats 2018, well we all knew Wolf won that, BUT the photo graces the front cover PLUS 2 full color pages devoted to his build and getting the award..................pictures of the old guy and all...................... I just thought in these days of unrest or what ever it is called, that a shout out across the modeling world was called for, so............... CONGRATULATIONS, Wolf , for winning the award, AND the cover and 2 page article in R/T !!! Well, deserved, take a bow, my friend..... Cheers ! Jeff

    FACEBOOK hacked

    I just wonder why there are SO many crooks out there, and never get caught ( and YES they can ) and if and when they do get caught NEVER any punishment...... why do we let this stuff go on, and I always hear, the trite " Oh, well, what can you do........" line........ this sort of hacking stuff is really getting out of control, and the phony phone calls I get about CRA, and the 'windows' thing on my computer.....geez...... and ALWAYS at supper time !!!
